What customers are saying about Rundes Landscape Contractors

We contacted Runde´s Landscaping this past summer to design and construct a paver patio. While we had interviewed three other companies, Runde´s was absolutely the best choice. Joe is very enthusiastic about his job and was genuinely excited to share his vision for our back yard. It was on par with what we were imagining, only BETTER. His team is amazing and very hard working. They were all very friendly and helpful when we had questions about different things throughout the process. Pricing was fair and we were teamed up with a representative at Unilock who helped us make the best choices of stone for our project. Over all, the process went smoothly and we love the additional living space we get to enjoy during the summer and fall months!
Brittany Wilk

Joe - Thank you for all the hard work you and your team did on our landscaping project. We are so pleased with how the design came together! Your team did quality work and was very pleasant and professional to deal with. We plan to take pictures once the pool is complete and would be happy to share those with you for your website.
John and Kelly Hassman - (847)-732-3855

Just wanted to say how thrilled we are with the transformation of our patio! Joe has the vision and passion of a true artist! He is truly an expert in his field, and his crew is first rate. He will work with your ideas and improve upon them. We would highly recommend him for any outdoor project. Love, love, love our new outdoor space!

I really respect and appreciate talking to Joe when I call. Not getting voicemail or an office employee makes the entire experience very professional and stress-free.
Marla Harris - Elgin, IL

You have perfection! You are most responsive, caring and knowledgeable. Your crew is awesome!!! We are so pleased with our yard. We will continue to tweak and plant with your help at times. But it is so lovely and we enjoy it from our screen porch. (It is the talk of the neighborhood)

Mr. and Mrs. Rich Burin- Elgin, IL

Thank you for my amazing looking yard! The loss of my original landscaper was certainly my gain. You listened to what I was looking for, used your creativity and created my cottage garden. I look forward to nurturing it and watching my new gardens evolve.
Juan and the crew were hard working, professional and neat. All of which I appreciated.
It has been such a pleasure working with you. Your passion for creating beautiful yards, shows in all that you do. I will be in touch next year to work on the patio.
Anytime you need a referral, don't hesitate to ask. I am always open to sharing your work with prospective clients.

Donna Leitner - Elgin, IL - (630)-440-8336

This was the second time Runde´s has done brick work and landscaping for us. They did 2 patios walkway and the landscaping for each area. Joe gave us a quote and the job ended up less than the quote. Very professional and easy to talk to. Jorge and his crew were very professional and worked very hard to complete the job in the time they had said. Jorge was available at the end of each day to discuss the work done that day. The work is beautiful and we love it and would recommend Runde´s landscaping to anyone.
Curtis W. - Elgin, IL - (847)-888-2219

Thanks for building a beautiful garden for us to enjoy!
We've had lots of compliments from people passing by also!

Mr. & Mrs. Terry Williams - Huntley, IL

This is the 2nd time I have used Rundes Landscape Contractors and again everything turned out terrific. The front walkway pavers and adjoining landscaping looks outstanding. Great design. Also, your crew was hardworking and professional. Many thanks again.
John Willert - St.Charles, IL

Joe and his crew not only brought our ideas to life, ... they solved all the details that homeowners don't often see. They transformed our back yard from concrete steps and grass, into a very attractive and desirable place that you want to spend time in. It has added value to our home and beauty all four seasons of the year.
Doug and Joni Brazelton

We just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the work you and your team did for us. Several years ago we contacted and hired you after seeing the beautiful job you did for our neighbors.You redesigned our backyard and created a beautiful stone patio and brick walkway for us that we enjoy every summer.
Last Spring we contacted you again for a redesign of our front yard landscaping. You took the time to sit with us and listen to our thoughts but also made suggestions based on your expertise and what you thought would work well.
We cannot tell you how much we love the transformation! The plants and total design are beautiful and we've had many compliments about our new yard!
You and your team were always on time, worked hard and exceeded our expectations.
Thanks to you and your team for jobs well done!

Ed and Cheryl Vucsko

We have utilized Rundes Landscaping for two major projects at our home.
The first project followed a major exterior upgrade to our residence and the project required a combination of stone walkways, driveway stone trim and landscaping upgrade. Joe had a great feel for the detail and just the right plant accents that made the exterior upgrade look complete. In four years the plants have matured and grown and we continue to receive many compliments on the ‘new’ look four years later.
The second project was a major patio upgrade for the back yard. Our 30+ year old home had a concrete slab with a portico and Joe developed a design that reinvigorated our back yard living space. Once again – his ability to create a design and incorporate plantings that fit and flow to the home and owner’s requirements is his strength. He utilized the new popular stone, a classic custom design with accent wall in addition to a unique approach for upgrading the portico with stone and cedar trim. In addition the plantings, stone beds and LED lighting helped to create our dream patio and something we will enjoy for years to come.
His work crew shows up on time, maintain a neat work area during the project and finish the projects on schedule.
If you have a major landscape project and need someone with the expertise and passion who will do it the right way we would recommend Rundes without hesitation. We are looking forward to our next project with Joe!

Gary and Karen Ottaviano - Elgin, IL

Before beginning our landscaping projects, we spent time driving around looking for homes with beautiful landscaping that stood out. Once we found out that Joe Runde had designed most all of them, and that his past clients raved about his work, we did not need to look much further.
Of all the changes and improvements we have done to our home, the landscaping work of Rundes is what has received the most compliments and added the most value and enjoyment.
Joe’s understanding and knowledge of plants is beyond impressive, but being able to take that knowledge and implement it into a big picture and long term landscape architectural plan is unique. Joe’s plans take into consideration the design and style of the house as well as the surrounding views. His ability to then blend the landscaping with stone outcroppings, trelaces, fountains, and other hardscape elements is a work of art.
There are many landscapers, but only one Joe Runde. Thank you Joe, George and the rest of your team for all you have done. You continue to exceed our expectations.
