retaining wall and slope grading

Bruno was very professional to work with. I obtained multiple quotes from different places and the quote from MJ Nicholls was very competitive. I am very pleased with the retaining wall that Colin and his crew put in my sloped yard this past fall. Very professional and hardworking crew! Highly recommended. My neighbor was also impressed with the results and afterwards hired MJ Nicholls to put in a smaller wall on his property.

Outstanding Work

We have just had our third job done by Nicholls and could not be more pleased. Several years ago we had the backyard leveled and a patio installed with small retaining wall. This spring we had the front yard finished with sod, shrubs pruned and a walkway from the patio to driveway installed. Our fence then looked fairly grim so we were pleased to find out they also do fencing (add to web site!). The fence was installed along the property with a gate in the front. All of the crews were extremely professional, started on time and gave realistic timelines. A special thanks to Rogelio, Hugo, Max and Antonio who did an amazing job on our fence and went the extra mile to make it perfect. Thank you!!

Booking again soon!

This summer we enjoyed our attractive and easy to maintain new landscapes thanks to Nicholl's hard work. In the spring, we met with Bruno to discuss back and front yard rehabs. Renovations included intense clean up, removal of over grown bushes, new plantings and sod. Finally, installation of granite front step. After several discussions, the crew started their work. Cannot say enough good things about them. They arrived early, worked hard all day in the heat, and cleaned up before leaving. All with smiles and extremely professional. Without any hesitation, next year we are planning to have Nicholl's come and do some patio work and more landscaping around our swimming pool.

Top Notch!

MJ Nicholls Landscaping is absolutely incredible! I am thrilled with our new patio, and our newly loamed lawn. This is the second project that we hired Nicholls Landscaping to do, and we continue to be impressed. Matt was prompt and thorough when we met to discuss the project and estimate. Omar, Will and Nick were the crew that worked incredibly hard! They were professional, diligent and knowledgeable. I can't wait to use my newly loamed area as a garden and I am excited to use the patio to entertain!

I would highly recommend Nicholls Landscaping to anyone looking to make any type of yard improvements!

This is a good company. It is fully prepared for all landscaping tasks, with a capable crew that swiftly but carefully scrapes away the old to establish the project site, then works with an artistic eye to make new things that are sturdy and beautiful - and they come with all the equipment great and small necessary to do such things. Equally good: all inquiries receive a quick response - the company is prompt to give answers and guidance, address concerns, and make a good effort so that all will be pleased with the completed project.

My own: removal of cinderblock and ancient fencing across the full front of my property; removal of a deep-in-the-earth elm stump on that same front line big as a baby elephant and solid as the monoliths of Stonehenge - then build a low stone retaining wall across the front (20 inches tall; Olde Sturbridge stone, 1-3 inch pieces with larger accent stones - this description offers no picture, but it has a fine look!); add new topsoil behind this wall, and also to fill numerous sunken areas in the yard from a long-ago sewer project; hydro-seed these filled areas, and the few areas scarred by the wall project.

The results are beautiful, and beyond my expectations - and at a good price, I should add. If I sit outside, people walking and driving by call out compliments for the work - many weeks now since this project was completed.

This company is M.J. Nicholls Landscaping, LLC. Take a good look, if you have thoughts of a landscaping project. Just in my own neighborhood I often see their trucks and crews. They are sought out because their work is excellent, a fine mix of competence and courtesy.

I am very pleased with the skillful work done by MJ Nicholls and his fine crew. The stone materials used for the area under the deck and the color and shape of the pavers selected for the new landing at the bottom of the deck stairs are perfect! I appreciate how hard MJ Nicholls and his crew worked to bring the ideas we discussed to reality! Thank you!

After reading the previous reviews I felt compelled to share my experience. While most of these reviews are about major projects, mine was not what I would consider major it was just tedious. It involved removing a very old and very ugly hedge across the front of the house, moving 6 large plants/trees to 2 different locations, creating some new flower beds, and completely cleaning up from the late fall season. Meeting and communication with Matt was very easy. He provided great suggestions and worked all I needed within my budget. The entire project was completed in 1 day, a large crew had this project handled in no time. I cant recommend them highly enough!

A Great Job -- Looks Beautiful

The Nicholls Landscaping crew did a great job replacing a tired 60-foot hedge of tall privets on a downward slope with a row of Arborvitae of increasing height. It truly looks great! Matt was very helpful in assisting us with the design, and patient as we thought through what we really wanted.

The crew that did the work could not have been more professional. They were very easy and pleasant to deal with, and went about their work with both competence and enthusiasm – including the clean-up at the end. The "boss" brought me in on questions that I needed to answer such as spacing, and made adjustments at my request which might have been small but made a positive difference. The entire project worked very well and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results.

Also, several years ago, the Nicholls group did work for us making a lawn. The project involved meticulously shaping the sod along a rock border, and the work was done to perfection; we were very pleased with the results. Attention to detail is definitely a hallmark of Nicholls Landscaping

I couldn't believe my yard!!!!!!

Matt Nicholls and his landscape team did an amazing job on my backyard. I wish I had taken before pictures but I will definitely take after pictures. This was an overwhelming task and in fact two companies had refused to do the work of leveling my yard. Matt and his team of professionals not only leveled my yard but added fresh loam and hydro seeded the entire yard. Now I just have to wait for my grass to grow which has already started!!! Matt's quote was very reasonable and comparable to my other 4 quotes but more importantly the job was done well and a very timely manner. I didn't even have to be at home. My yard now looks twice as large as before.I now look forward to spending time outside in my yard something I haven't wanted to do for years. Matt was very professional and it was great doing business with him. He responded to my request quickly, answered email promptly and completed the work in the short time frame I needed to get the job done.

Elated about our new yard transformation!!

When I first called Matt to ask for a quote, he was prompt to respond and on time for our appointment. We planned to have our entire yard cleared, leveled and then put down over 3,000 feet of sod. We called him for a second opinion, as we had already had another quote by another landscaping company. Right away, he spotted that 5 of our trees were diseased and should come out before spending money on sod, as they would have to come out just a few years later. The other landscaper didn't point that out.
He also recommended moving a rhododendron from the corner of the house to the back, to make it feel more spacious and give privacy from the neighbor. This was absolutely the right move. When we first bought the house, plants and shrubs were just scattered everywhere, making the property feel very small. Now, everything has purpose and it feels exactly the way the yard is supposed to feel. It's so much more spacious and inviting! We could not be happier.
Matt's crew is also wonderful. They were polite, kind and even treated our dog kindly when she was scared of the machines. They always shut off the machinery when I took her out for walks so she wouldn't be scared. They are professional and punctual and very hard working.
We strongly recommend MJ Nicholls and his team for a job very well done. We will definitely have them back for more work in the future as we plan on installing a new patio and fence.
