Texas Land Design did a complete makeover plan and installation for our entire front yard. The services included design/layout, plant selection, existing bed and yard removal, hardscape and landscape installation, and new sod.
Everything went really well on our project. We were extremely pleased.  We met Matt and Texas Land Design a couple years ago when we started planning our project. We were attracted to the company because of their ads that said they work with native, drought tolerant plants. We were interested in a very Texas, natural look that had hardscape, and native plants that were drought tolerant and shade tolerant.
We were having grass problems because of our trees. We wanted to replace a lot of the yard with landscape. We went through several iterations of plans that reached our desired look, contained plants we liked, and met our budget.
Matt was very knowledgeable about the plants. He had many good suggestions and backup suggestions for us. He selected plants that met the shade, drought, and native criteria as well as had different coloring blooms at different times of the year at different height levels.
Matt was very patient and attentive. He carefully reviewed and reviewed again the plants we selected. He made the necessary plan changes when budget and/or plant decisions changed. He sent pictures of the plans so we knew what we were getting.
We went to view some of his work at other client’s houses. They were all impressive looking, and everyone had good things to say about him.
Our project went very quickly. The team was very professional and hard working. First, they did a thorough job of removal and prep work. Next, they did the hardscape. They installed a flagstone patio extension to our existing patio, a dry river rock creek bed, a stone border, a flagstone stepping path, and scattered heavy boulders. Then, they laid out and installed the new plants and covered ground with mulch. Finally, they installed new Zoysia sod in the remaining yard.
Everything looked great. Matt gave us instructions on how to care for our plants and grass.
Neighbors out walking in the neighborhood stop by to tell us how great the yard looks. We get compliments all the time. We easily won yard of the month for our HOA the month after our project completed.
In the months afterwards, Matt continued to provide advice and check on our plants when we were concerned. We really appreciated his followup.

We interviewed approximately 12 contractors over a 5 month period. Texas Land Design was the only company who did not try to gouge or take advantage of us. Matt was also the only person who actually listened and gave us exactly what we asked for and then some. Everything is perfect from the rock selection and placement as well as the overall design of our water feature. Matt has an eye for excellence. Not only do we have a beautiful water feature, we have a beautiful patio that holds our gazebo. We highly recommend Texas Land Design, particularly if you’re looking for a company with fair pricing.

My husband and I have been enjoying our water garden for 10 years. Because of its location outside our kitchen window, we can drink our morning coffee while looking at the abundant yellow lantana and listening to the birds as they play in the waterfall. The beautiful colors and peaceful sound of the waterfall create a place where we can rest!  Texas Land Design did a spectacular job!

I have enjoyed my pond tremendously and part of that enjoyment is the service that Matt has provided. He is always pleasant and cooperative. All my service calls have been prompt to resolve. I have recommended him several times to persons thinking of installing a pond.

Rockwall – TX

I cannot say enough good things about Texas Land Design and Matt. During installation all our questions were answered knowledgeably and professionally. Any problems that arose after the pond was complete were addressed promptly and to our complete satisfaction.

Texas Land Design turned our back yard into what we call “our little piece of heaven”. Our water feature is beautiful and we enjoy relaxing to the sound of the waterfall.

Texas Land Design did a complete landscape of the front yard.  Design, preparation and planting.  The plans were detailed, the review of the plans were masterfully done due to Matt’s knowledge of plants and the conditions in North Central Texas.  The preparation was done with detail and the plants were excellent in condition shape and size.  Matt also was outstanding in going over how to care for the plants going forward.  The people at Texas Land Design enjoy their job and it shows in all they do.

The only complaint I have is I have had to dig out the plans many times to remind me the names of the plants since they are so unusual and different people stop and ask.  I prefer Matt knows the names and I just enjoy the beautiful landscape.

Gainesville – TX

Texas Land Design did a complete landscape design and replacement of all existing landscape items, except for existing trees.  Install included new flowerbed borders ( and removal of old ones), addition of flagstone pathway, shrubs, flowers, and some grass, river rock removal and re-install, install flagstone in certain areas.
We can not say enough about the wonderful experience we had with Matt and Texas Land Design.  Professional, knowledgeable, creative on the design, just everything was well done.  He and his crew were there when they said they would be.  On the design phase, he did a great job on the design (which included the front yard and back yard).  He took the time to go over each plant chosen, so we could decide if we wanted that plant or not.  We did make a couple of changes, as Matt always told us the pros and cons of each selection.

To date, we have had numerous compliments on the front yard.  If people you do not know (people out walking the neighborhood) stop and tell you how great it looks, you figure that it looks pretty good!
Matt is very personable, super easy to work with, and we can highly recommend him.

After poking around in the Yellow Pages and on the Internet for a residential landscaper to hire to add life and character to my yard, I called upon Texas Land Design.  From my first call to the company, I felt that I had a contractor who was professional and committed to customer service.  The owner of Texas Land Design, Matt Star, quickly scheduled a meeting with us to discuss our needs and wants.  A few days later, Matt submitted a landscape design that suited our home and lifestyle — it was a design that  was better than what we could have imagined!  The quote was reasonable and fair.  He scheduled the installation to suit our schedule (we were in the process of completing a swimming pool and outdoor kitchen and scheduled to leave on a vacation).

During the installation, Matt showed up with his crew every day.  They were always on time and cleaned up after themselves before they left for the day.    At the end of installation, Matt went over the care of the plants again and provided us with hard copy detailed instructions on how to care for the plants.  Matt and the Texas Land Design crew were ALWAYS very professional.  It was great to have the owner of the company onsite and involved in the process from start to finish.  The quality of service and products provided by Texas Land Design has rendered a gorgeous front yard with great curb appeal and a scenic Hill Country vibe back yard that we enjoy daily.

Flower Mound – TX

Texas Land Design did a 2 week reconstruction. We replaced the backyard wooden fence. We had 75 feet of stone chain wall with about 75 feet that didn’t have it. They added the other 75 feet on and put in a new fence. They then added a variety of shrubs and got rid of some plants that were overwhelming for our yard. There were a couple places around my pool where we had flower beds. They took those out and put in flagstone.
My wife and I would highly recommend Texas Land Design because of the quality of the work, the ease of design in the yard, the on time completion of the project and the employees work standards.

Dear Matt,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for an outstanding renovation of my backyard.  Last year we had our house on the market and the biggest objection to our home was the landscape and fencing of the  yard.  The old yard was too crowded with plants and trees and they reduced the size of the yard.

All of your workers from the wood fence installer, stone fence builder, and landscape employees did a wonderful job in creating an incredible new yard.  It is extremely pleasant to sit under our porch and just look at all the new plants.  The removal of our old plants and the installation of the TExas plants has completely changed the complexion of the yard.  It’s as if we expanded the depth of the yard.

We would highly recommend Texas Land Design because of the quality of your work, the ease of designing the yard, the on time completion of the project, and your employees work standards.

We are so pleased with our landscaping project which was expertly designed and installed by Texas Land Design (TLD).  Our project was a total transformation which included a rock retaining wall, moss boulder retaining wall, dry stream beds, plants, and lawn.  Our home is adjacent to a greenbelt running through the city and we wanted to work with someone who could incorporate our home and the natural area.
TLD‘s owner, Matt Starr, accomplished this in a stunning fashion.  We are delighted with the final result which is nothing short of spectacular.  From start to finish our expectations were exceeded.  This job was worth every dollar we invested.  We are convinced that the success of our project is due to Matt’s knowledge, judgement and expertise; in other words, his personal touch.  From a practical standpoint, TLD stayed on budget both in time and money.  There were no surprises. Communication was great.  They cleaned up each day and there was minimal amount of inconvenience.  We are comfortable making these favorable comments and referral based on the excellent work that was performed.  We recommend Texas Land Design unconditionally and without reservation.
