My rating is based on a total landscaping of our front yard in Arlington. We followed their advice to hire an outside designer to recommend which shrubs/plants and their placement. The team who did the planting was inexperienced. Some plants were not spaced properly, and should have been planted more deeply. The supervisor advised us to water every day, which would have caused root rot, had I listened. He knew little about the species of plants. My biggest gripe is the pink dogwood tree that was diseased from the start. It had to have been a reject. The tree continues to die 10 months after the job was completed. I called this to the attention of John within the 6-month warranty period, but he passed me off to an employee who told me the tree was healthy. I have been documenting it with photographs, as it continues to die. Hambletons gives only a 6 month warranty. Three of our boxwoods have died over the summer, outside of the warranty. If I could do it again, I would have selected a nursery such as Meadowbrook Farms to do the job, with free design, better warranty (lifetime) and more experienced staff. I feel that we paid a premium price to receive only an average service. Finally, the staff is slow in responding to emails. I don't know whether it is due to being overworked or a matter of caring. If I had it to do again, I would not choose Hambleton's. Otherwise, the Hambleton's are a very fine family, in spite of my comments here.

Company hired to fix our existing paver patio. Price was high but would have been okay if work was done right. It wasn't. I had to call the co. after they didn't show up to remind them. When they came, the supervisor hadn't been told what to do. When that got straightened out, the work was performed but the result was the patio was not fixed properly.
