As a landscape and tree removal company, customer satisfaction is our primary concern and we strive to meet their landscaping service needs!

It is with the constant feedback from our customers that our company continues to exceed in expectation. Below are a few statements from our current valued customers.


"A real shout out to a professional crew. Carl was in charge, he was onsite actively overseeing and handling the project...he had his hands dirty throughout driving diggers etc. His whole team were excellent...they executed a clean, tidy, job and you could tell they were safe and knew their stuff, it was a large job and they were so efficient or effective I am not sure what describes the project best but they handled it with knowledge. I would highly recommend using them for tree projects. – Jane - New Canaan, CT
"Highly recommend, met with Jeff and very happy with the service he provided. Honesty and integrity are my top priorities for these types of business arrangements. I can attest that all the positive reviews you see on the company are well deserved." - Michael - Darien, CT
"They did a great job. They totally clean up the area after they work. Removed all the logs -- many!!! They seeded where there was some unevenness due to the work. Very professional workers. Jeff Cowden, sales rep, is an expert in trees. Very impressed by him. Also met the owner, Dan. He was on sight as well to monitor work. Strongly recommend this firm". - Joyce - Fairfield, CT
This was a huge project and MAJOR change to our property. It was extremely stressful to take down so many large trees and figure out how to transform the property with safety, budget, future maintenance etc. in mind, and we are glad we did this with Dan and the team. Dan is very easy to work with, and worked with us to make a plan to stay in budget (which required him to come out several times and review ideas/changes with us). It took 5 full days to complete this project, and involved heavy equipment on the property. The guys worked super hard, were polite and professional (we were not surprised given our first experience with them last Fall). We give a shout out to John who was a master on the heavy equipment and super careful with our driveway. Originally we were going to grass the berm that was created (for a temporary step) but realized on day 4 that it would be better to mulch it in prep for future plantings. This change on our part required Dan to come out again on site (which he had done each day of the project to check in) and figure out on the fly how to get 30 yards of mulch to the site (all trucks were already on other jobs this day). He said "I'll figure it out" and within a few hours the mulch was here. The guys that worked the landscape portion of the job were excellent too. Clean-up was wonderful (as it was the first time), and several days after the project was done, one of the team came out to pick up some boards used to protect the driveway. He inspected the lawn, and added more topsoil/seed in a few areas. We really appreciated this check-in, and it makes us feel like they really care that things are going right for us. Stephanie is always a pleasure to work with on the back-end office communications, and it's refreshing to know she is there for quick questions that we don't want to bother Dan with. She is always very prompt with follow-up too. This is a can-do company with polite, professional, and hard-working workers from Dan on through the whole team. They know what they are doing. It is no small thing for us to say that we are comfortable with any one of the team on our property. – Michele - Middlebury, CT
John gives you the impression that he and his team will not leave until your mouth drops with admiration for the work and then they follow through just like that. They did a staggeringly good job with a massive, v-trunked maple tree at my house. They gave a very competitive price and then proceeded to nail the job. They took the tree down in chunks using a cherry picker and guy with a chain saw, chipped all the brush that was at the top of the tree, and then cut the trunk into perfect fire-size lengths. John came back the next day and stacked it all beautifully. I had tried to move some of the logs, but could barely budge most of them. I told him not to try because it's too heavy and didn't want him to hurt his back. He insisted and after an hour, he had stacked the entire unsplit trunk. Unbelievable. It's been a long while since I've seen effort, professionalism, and determination like that which John brought to this job. I am floored and would highly recommend them. – Kristin Trumbull, CT They did an excellent job of everything. I am on a limited budget and they worked with me to do the best job within my budget.. I have no hesitation to give them the highest recommendation. – Thelma - Derby, CT They did great! When I first called them for an estimate they actually showed up on time! That always amazes me because very few contractors do. When I decided to go with their bid Stephanie was very helpful in setting up the appointment and handling all my questions and concerns. On the day of the job the crew showed up early, that was a pleasant surprise also. There was no doubt that they knew what they were doing since they got right to work. The job went flawlessly and I was very satisfied. This was a difficult tree to take down as it was very large and overhung my house and the power line running to it. I was assured by Dan that his company would do a professional and meticulous job and he made good on it. I would definitely use them again. – Thomas - Newtown, CT
Replace driveway, masonry and landscaping. Completed the job in a timely manner. Staff was very courteous and their attention to detail was phenomenal. I will continue to use this company for any projects going forward. A++++ - Luis - Shelton, CT
It turned out great. They leave the area nice and clean when they're done. – Michael - Sandy Hook, CT
The job went very well. It took two days to complete. Most of the wood was taken away; however a great deal of wood was neatly compiled in a wooded area in the back yard for firewood. I was impressed that Dan, the owner came out before the job was completed to see if I was pleased with the job before it was finished. My neighbor saw how meticulous and precise the guys were with my job, and got a quote from Dan about a tree she had contemplated cutting down for a few years. She was satisfied with the quote and the tree was set to be cut on the second day of my job. Mind you, this was not an anticipation for the foursome, however two men tackled my neighbor's tree, while the other two continued working diligently on my property. Her tree had many family memories, but also blocked a gazebo. The end result was she was ecstatic when the job was completed. To date, she constantly says how pleased she is with her decision to cut down the tree, along with using Riccio's. – Althea - Hamden, CT
Dan Riccio was very professional and responsive to all my questions and concerns. The project got off to a slow start because of town zoning issues, but Dan took the time to talk to town reps and work out a way to construct a driveway that we would be happy with and one that would meet town regulations. His entire team was professional, hard-working, and on-time. Choosing a contractor is a big decision, and I'm glad I chose Riccio Landscaping. I would definitely recommend them to others, and I would hire them again for future projects. – Amy - West Haven, CT
Phenomenal !!! I couldn't be happier with Dan and all his crew. They did an excellent job I couldn't be more impressed.?Actually I was so impressed I had them not only clear by back woods but install a 20x22 Bluestone patio. Their masons were great! We hit a bit of a snag with running into some existing french drains, but Ricco Landscaping was super responsive and we agreed on a cost effective solution. Other than that we kept on budget. We'll be using them again and you should too !! – Michael - Stratford, CT
They were absolutely excellent! Arrived on time, and got straight to work. We had a lot of brush that we cut down, as well as old logs that were apparently left to rot. Anything that couldn't be put into the chipper, they hauled away in the pickup truck. They were very courteous and efficient. An excellent price, hundreds of dollars below other quotes that we received. We have recommended them to others and will continue to do so! – Jennie - Waterbury, CT
it was an excellent experience from beginning to end. I highly recommend them. – Robert - Madison, CT
They were very efficient; great work. – Richard - Wallingford, CT
We are thrilled with the results of the landscaping. We set the installation date based on assurances of our painting contractor who then actually finished exterior painting about 2 months behind schedule. Mike was so patient and accommodated this delay and we were so appreciative of his flexibility and understanding! We are looking forward to seeing the plantings in full glory in the Spring! I highly recommend Riccio Landscaping's expert and professional team and the work and expertise they put into making everything look super! - Bridgeport, CT
Dan created a landscape design for these two projects and all went brilliantly. The project was done efficiently to include using already established plantings to recycle and help minimize cost. There was an unforeseen problem with erosion and Dan and his crew fixed the problem and created a park-like look to what was an unsightly part of our property. One planting did not take and Dan replaced it without question. We have worked with Riccio Landscaping for a number of years and we would not consider doing business with anyone but Dan. – Christine - Trumbull, CT
They did a professional job. Removed all debri by raking and separate team came back for stump grinding. I've never had this done so I specified that I wanted it leveled and my front yard looks great now! – Lucas - Trumbull, CT
Dan is one of a kind. We have hired him several times over the past few years and his work is always excellent. This time we had two very tall trees that were dead or dying and he cleanly and efficiently got rid of them. He brought several pieces of huge equipment to cut down the trees, remove the stumps, and move the other tree. He and his crew were always there on schedule and worked steadily through. – Elyse - Trumbull, CT
Dan and his team are amazing. Punctual, fast, and reasonable. You can't beat Riccio's - I highly recommend their services. – Paul - Fairfield, CT
Excellent. Prompt, courteous, professional. Tricky job because no heavy equipment could be brought into rear yard, climber had to hand-cut and carry the debris out. I returned later in the day, not so much as a stray woodchip to be found. – LR - Greenwich, CT
Excellent job They removed all the branches and cleaned everything up. . You could not even tell they were there except the tree was gone. – Stella - Stratford, CT
If I could give Dan and his people an A+ I would. Dan was prompt, courteous and kept in touch throughout the process. They showed up when they said they would, and worked incredibly hard, getting the jobs done far faster than I thought possible. His guys are excellent workers. I made a few changes from plan, and the response was always "No problem, we can do that." The prices were reasonable, and extra charges for change items either nothing or very reasonable. I give them the highest recommendation for any landscaping company I have worked with, and I have a great deal of experience in that regard. - Paul - Woodbridge, CT
I have had lots of problems with contractors in the passed and was very reluctant to hire anyone anymore. But this was the greatest experience I have ever had with a contractor he has renewed my faith in them. He did just a fantastic job he came on time he did what he said he would do he removed 6 big trees and one huge tree in my back yard. All the other tree people said I would have to remove my fence to get to my tree in back yard he did not have me remove my fence. They would grind the stumps but I would have to fill it in my self. Mr Riccio grinned the stumps fill it in with top soil and seeded it and put straw on it all the wile giving me the best price anyone needing tree service should hire this company you will not regret it. My son in law needs a tree removed and will be calling Mr. Riccio. – Richard - Hamden, CT
They were supposed to arrive at 9am, but called and said they had to finish a job before they came. We were put out since we took a day off to work with them and make sure they did what we wanted. They said they would get there around 3 and work till 7 to put in a half day. They came, set up and went to work. They applied themselves and worked fast and neat. They took breaks, but they deserved them. When they came to a tree we thought should go, but they thought it should be saved, they consulted us and we appreciated the consult. They proved right every time.They dropped the trees exactly where they aimed and finished up well after 7 putting in a great 1/2 day work. The next day the pace didn't slacken and they accomplished more than we thought they would. The last day they did the biggest trees. They used a lift which didn't weigh as much as a truck and could go over our septic without a problem. Arrived early, worked hard and fast. Cleaned up well. Great team. It is a pleasure to say that they were worth what we paid them and we are very happy with the great professional job they did. – David - Wilton, CT
The owner, Dan Riccio, was very responsive throughout the entire project. I had a lot of questions upfront and he was great about describing how the entire project was going to be completed. We agreed on a price, which was highly competitive, and they began work within 2 weeks. Muddy conditions caused by heavy rained delayed the completion of the work but the crew worked fast and efficiently throughout. Communication was never an issue and Dan was agreeable to several additional requests that I made during the project. The entire project took approximately 2 weeks (with the weather delay) which was a little longer than we discussed but the result was much better than I was expecting. Dan is still contacting me 3 weeks after the project was complete to find out how the grass growth is progressing and giving me tips on how to improve the growth. Overall, we are extremely happy with the result and would definitely recommend Riccio to anyone. – Andrew - Fairfield, CT
Absolutely excellent service and performance in all areas. First, they responded promptly to my request for a proposal/estimate with the estimator being well experienced in tree removal and its nuances. He advised that the tree I thought to be a problem was not so but clearly and in detail explained why another was in need of prompt attention. When I accepted the proposal, a take down date was scheduled within a week. On the scheduled date, the crew and equipment arrived promptly at 8:00 AM as scheduled. All of their equipment was in first class condition showing it was carefully and properly maintained and serviced. They worked quickly but very carefully and were always observant of being absolutely safe in their operations looking to protect their workers and my property. When finished they completely cleaned up all the branches and wood chips and secured the logs for pick up the next work day, (it was a Friday). On Monday they called to advise that they ran into an unexpected delay on a previous job and would be here on Tuesday. On Tuesday at 8:00 AM the crew arrived with their equipment, (also in top notch, A-1 condition) and began the removal of the tree trunks and heavy logs. Before starting, they placed plywood sheets on the lawn to avoid tearing up the turf as the equipment traversed the area. I am absolutely pleased 100%+ with the work done and the professionalism of the work crew. – Thomas - Brookfield, CT
Dan responded quickly to my initial inquiry about getting a quote and was very patience while I did some homework and after some back and forth over a week I committed to job. Everything went well and turned out great. There were several changes made along the way that Dan suggested and were all good ideas. Dan was very honest and forthcoming throughout the project. He is always available to answer questions. – Charles - Shelton, CT
