“I contacted Linda about a small area I wanted to create for storage. I also contacted another company to request an estimate. I was very happy that Charlie had finished the job before the competitor even returned a call to provide a quote. I needed to co-ordinate the work with an HVAC company replacing an air conditioner, and Linda was not only sympathetic & understanding, but she was able to co-ordinate the landscaping with them so we only lost air conditioning for 3 days during the hot spell in July. Thank you for the attention you gave to our project."

“Please convey my thanks to Charlie for getting this job done quickly. I really appreciate it.
I will certainly call you all again if I need anything related to landscaping. We are very happy with the end result. Thank you again."
“Thanks to both Charlie & Linda for all of your help and all of your hard work. The patio and everything else looks great; my wife and I could not be more pleased with how it all turned out. As I mentioned to Charlie, I’m sure [in this newer neighborhood] it will lead to future business opportunities for you guys & I’ll be happy to recommend you to anyone who asks."

“We contacted Landscaping by Charles McGlinn about refurbishing our lawn and building a new walkway. Our lawn was in very poor shape and we needed some major work. Charlie was quick in responding and stopped by to survey the situation and make recommendations. After this initial consultation, he provided a quote that we believe was very reasonable. We contracted for the job, and work began promptly. He and his team spent many days over the course of a few weeks at the house taking down several large trees, thinning many more, grinding stumps, and excavating a landscape remodel and for the new walkway. He also installed a drainage system to prevent future runoff and erosion as part of the project.
We are very pleased with the way everything turned out. The property looks 100% better than before. New grass is growing and we have received many compliments on the walkway. We would not hesitate to call Landscaping by Charles McGlinn for future projects."

“Charlie and Linda have been great to work with. They came out to my property promptly to review the situation with my patio and gave me a fair and reasonable estimate as to the scope of the work and how long it would take. They completed the project on time and accommodated our schedule so we would not lose the use of our pool in the hot summer months. Their reliability and responsiveness to my questions were great and are an aspect of client service that I really appreciated. I would not hesitate to use them again for any of my hardscaping needs.
Also, I am happy to serve as a verbal reference if anyone ever requests it.”
Downingtown, PA (August 16, 2016)
“We have nothing but high praise for the quality of work Charlie and his crew have provided us. He has been thorough, friendly, conscientious of our requests, and totally professional in all of our dealings with him. We highly recommend Charlie to anyone seeking quality landscaping.”

"We've used many landscapers over the 43 years we have been in our home and no one was more conscientious or hardworking than Charlie McGlinn and his crew. We will not hesitate to recommend him to our friends and neighbors and will definitely contact him for future work."

Linda McGlinn writes "Work completed August 2014: After a recent torrential downpour customer called me to let me know how happy they were with our grading/ patio work. Jamie told me that she called her husband from the grocery store to see "how bad the water in the yard was" and he said "there's no water, the swale is working great". Here is her testimonial:
"From the first time we met Charlie we knew he'd be able to successfully complete the work we were looking to have done. Charlie and his team worked hard and put in a beautiful paver patio with appropriate grading. When I look for any contractor I look for responsiveness, quality, longevity, and someone who stands by their work. I'm happy to have found that working with Charlie, Linda, and their team."
Downingtown, PA (April 2016)
"We couldn't be more happy with the work that was done at our home. Everything was communicated
perfectly and the work was performed quickly and as described. We will definitely use Charlie again. Thank
you for watering our new lawn while we were on vacation, it has come in beautifully. My final decision in
using you was your online customer testimonials, so I think it's very fair that I give one as well."
Brooke Road, Exton, PA (September 15, 2015)
"We enjoyed working with Charlie and crew on this [grading] project - a positive experience! I
hope to contact you again for some future work."
Downingtown (October 2013)
"Thanks Charlie, my lawn always looks awesome! Hope you had a great summer."
Downingtown (September 2013)
"Charlie did a wonderful job with the grading." "I had to call you after this morning's intense
rain to let you know how delighted I was; what a difference." "The water drained off of the patio
just perfectly and I'm not surprised as he's done beautiful work for us in the past. Thank you so much!"
“Thanks Linda. The trees look amazing! We are in a new development so we were telling
our neighbors we were getting some work done and they asked for your
information. I asked Charlie for some of your business cards to pass out.
He said you are booked almost through August so I will let anyone know that. I
am sure we will be in touch with more projects as they come up! I will be in touch
if we have any questions."
“We purchased our home in June of last year and were excited about making some
changes to our current landscaping this spring. After speaking with several companies,
we finally were introduced to Charlie and team. Linda scheduled our initial meeting
with Charlie within 24 hours of the first phone call, and we knew during the initial
meeting we had found a quality company. Charlie was both insightful and thoughtful
in his approach to our needs, it was clear he was a knowledgeable professional that
cared about the quality his work. Following our meeting with Charlie, Linda was
very helpful in coordinating the remaining details and keeping us informed about
the next steps of the project. In all, the work was completed within just a couple
of weeks, even with a span of bad weather, and the results were great. Equally as
important, they both were very considerate of our budgetary requirements and provided
a very affordable design! We are thrilled that our neighbors have been so complementary,
and we have already begun to speak with Charlie and Linda about our next project.
We are happy to recommend their work as they will continue to be our landscapers of choice going forward!
Many thanks on a great job!!”
“When we purchased our home and renovated it, it was still missing a certain
something in curb appeal. Charles McGlinn's amazing designing skills gave us that
"wow" effect and we couldn't be more pleased. Charlie designed and installed a beautiful
slate walkway to replace the broken, ugly concrete one that came with the house. We
were told that there was a wait as Charlie was backed up with work for a few months when
I contacted him mid season. I can honestly say the final product was well worth the wait
and has exceeded all of our expectations. We get so many compliments on the beautiful
walkway that Charles McGlinn did for us and I would highly recommend him to anyone!"
“I can't thank you enough for creating an incredible outdoor living space for
our family. We didn't really know what we wanted and you designed a beautiful
patio with a lower tier fire pit outlined with the boulders and seamlessly
incorporated the gazebo. I couldn't believe how meticulous you were and I was
amazed by your great attention to detail. We have received glowing compliments
from everyone who has seen it. It has become a treasured gathering place for our
family. Thank you so much !!!"

“Working with Charlie and Linda was a terrific experience. Seldom do we find
contractors who work with the efficiency, quality and integrity of Landscaping by
Charlie McGlinn. He and his crew became like family during the installation and
their work ethic was second to none. Although we had clear ideas for our plan,
Charlie took those ideas and offered enhancements that made us look like pros to
our friends and neighbors. All that plus a very fair and honest approach to
pricing and service make it a pleasure to recommend Charlie and his team to
others. We will certainly be collaborating again in the future."

“All we can say is WOW. It has been such a pleasure to work with Charlie,
Linda and the entire crew. ….Charlie seemed to know exactly what we wanted.
Charlie took care of EVERYTHING! I’m thankful we chose his company to do the
landscaping. Everyone was courteous, helpful and very hard workers! They were a Godsend!!”

"It isn't often that you look in the Yellow Pages for people like doctors, lawyers, plumbers or electricians, but I never thought that I would find McGlinn Landscaping on the internet by doing a Google search. It was the best "hit" I ever got regarding a search for a contractor-this time, a landscaper.
I am a strong proponent of supporting businesses in my immediate area, so I called McGlinn in Downingtown, Chester County, PA. They returned my call the very same day and came to my house a day or two later. A written estimate was in my hands within another day or two.
There are no words to describe the end product. They constructed a beautiful stone retaining wall and added lighting. The wall eliminated a serious erosion problem and enhanced the curb appeal of my house to where I am the envy of the neighborhood. I have been asked by several neighbors for the name of the landscaper who did the work and was happy to tell them it was McGlinn. I would recommend them above any landscaper in the area. They are reliable, cooperative and do beautiful work at reasonable prices.
If I could present them with an award, it would be for being not only a class outfit but a friend as well. We communicated with each other on a daily basis until the job was completed. Unlike other contractors who disappear once the work is done, McGlinn continues to communicate with me regarding how to improve further the work they did. I know I could call on them a year from now and they would be more than willing to assist me on a moment's notice.
Downingtown is a sweet town to live in and we should be proud to have good businesses like McGlinn nearby."
"I just wanted to say thank you very much, you guys did a phenomenal job on the landscaping....
my wife was very, very pleased.....your crew was very respectful - I tell you, I was impressed,
very well done …..I surely will recommend you to everyone Again, you guys did a phenomenal job,
Glen Riggs, West Chester March 2006
"I recently had a home built in Coatesville and my property was a disaster after construction.
I quickly realized that I would never be able to accomplish the things I wanted done without some
help. I consulted the yellow pages and saw an ad for "Landscaping By Charles McGlinn". Charlie and
his dedicated staff provided me with a graded yard with seed, a beautiful patio, and split rail
fencing that enclosed my backyard. In addition, the ideas and suggestions that Charlie made were
instrumental in the overall success of my many hopes and dreams. I highly recommend Charles
McGlinn for all of your outdoor projects."

things for us."
