“Our large corner lot was transformed from a common place to a tropical paradise all thanks to Terrascape Creative Landscaping. Andres Avelar listened to our ideas as well as offering excellent suggestions for the overall plan. His team is hard working, neat, friendly, and cooperative. Once our project was complete Andres came back to our house to answer our questions we had about the plants, i.e., pruning, watering, etc. It was a pleasure working with this company and we highly recommend them”.

“In just over a period of three days the landscape in front of my villa was transformed from simple rocks into the most beautiful and unique water feature. Each rock both large and small was painstakingly placed in just the right spot to create a true work of art, a sculpture in its own right. I love it and so do my neighbors! Terrascape is truly a company that cares about their clients, gets work done when promised, and continually strives to make all things right. So if you can dream it they can build it! Go for it!”

“Please feel free to stop by and take a look”.

“We chose TerraScape for our landscaping upgrade and Megan was our contact. Working with her was easy and a pleasure. The crew supervisor CJ and his crew were also easy to work with and went beyond what the plan called for, when our front wall layout was changed to make it more visually appealing. The supplies used even exceeded what was called for without extra expense. They also power washed some of the landscaping blocks we already had and they refused them at the side of the house and rear of our new bird cage. The work was completed five weeks ago and they still are following up on some plantings or details they couldn’t take care of earlier i.e. remove tie strap on Sylvester Palm, etc. Can’t wait for the plantings to mature and produce their colors”.

“Dear Andres

You were so right! The East Palatka Holly you recommended for planting in my front yard most definitely adds to the perfect WOW factor to the landscape. Added to that, the staked walls are absolutely beautiful and complete the picture to the point where my yard is now the envy of the neighborhood. You should drive by at some point and take a look at the finished product as it speaks highly of your company’s skill and expertise.

Importantly, I want to take the opportunity to tell you what a pleasant experience it has been working with you and your crew. Everyone presented themselves in the most pleasing and professional manner. I am surly impressed by each of your employees knowledge of the landscaping world and the skill and workmanship applied to their job, which is so evident in the finished product. This speaks highly of the ability of your company and sets you apart from the others.

You are a knowledgeable and talented landscaper. You listened to my ideas while making appropriate suggestions that resulted in my complete satisfaction. The work done at my home is exceptional. How could I not send you this letter? I will certainly recommend your company to anyone seeking landscape work.

Thank you for the wonderful “facelift” you’ve given my home. I just couldn’t be happier!”

“As new residents of The Villages, We chose Terrascape to enhance our landscaping for our corner lot on Pennecamp Drive.  Our first favorable impression was made as we drove past their location on 301. When we stopped to learn more, we were immediately impressed by how well their nursery was stocked and maintained. When we were greeted by Bonnie, their nursery manager, we were impressed by her competence and commitment to her work. She arranged a time for consultation at our home with Terrascape’s owner, Andres Avelar. His professionalism, eagerness to incorporate our ideas, and subsequent detailed landscaping plan convinced us to contract Terrascape’s services from our home. The installation of the landscaping was promptly scheduled and well executed by his experienced staff.  Andres frequently checked on the progress of the installation and requested feedback from us. We are very pleased with our enhanced landscaping and recommended Terrascape without reservation.”

“Dear Andreas

In June I sent you a letter about some specific concerns regarding the maintenance of our yard. Today I’m please to say I’m writing to thank you for addressing each of them and especially for replacing the sod that died. The character you showed by taking responsibility will not go unrewarded. I will continue recommending Terrascape to others and look forward to hiring your company for more landscape work in the future.

The rose bushes are looking much better now that they are being properly dead headed weekly. The sprinkler heads were cleared of debris and weeds are being tended to weekly.

Bonnie has been key to our yard looking as good as it does today. She is always upbeat and ready to help. She is very knowledgeable and I have come to rely on her expertise. It is refreshing to work with someone of her professional caliber.”

"I just wanted to drop a note telling you how pleased we are with the work you just completed at our home at 892 Allagash Ave., The Villages. The curbing looks just fantastic, and the work to remove and replant several bushes and refill and spread rock was done exactly the way we wanted. The crew that did the work was polite, friendly, and very professional.

All in all it was a job well done. We will not hesitate in recommending your company to our neighbors and friends! Once again, thanks for a job well done."

“We just wanted to say ‘thanks’ for the beautiful landscaping you and your crew did for us. We are so pleased and have gotten many compliments. We appreciated the willingness of Andres to listen to our ideas as to what we wanted and then put them into his design. After the initial meeting, we even changed our minds about a couple of things in the plan and Andres worked with us until it was just what we envisioned. Everyone was very nice, from the people in the office, to the crew. All of whom worked very hard. We are pleased that once the job was started, they came every day until the job was completed. All in all, it was a very good experience and we are very happy with the outcome."

Dear Andres,
Thanks to your OUTSTANDING design skills, I believe we now have the most AWESOME front yard anywhere in The Villages! From start to finish it has been a pleasure to work with you and your staff, all of whom were most accommodating and polite. We would also commend you on the super crew you sent to implement your vision of an amazing landscape design for our house. Never have we seen a more dedicated trio than C.J., Juan and Mario, all of whom took obvious pride in their work. Each, in his own way, was determined to create a work of art. And they succeeded!! The plants, shrubs, trees and bushes are all gorgeous specimens! We sincerely hope you will get a lot of inquiries as a result of the showplace that YOU have created on Harley Circle. The transformation of our front yard is BEAUTIFUL!! THANK YOU FOR A JOB WELL DONE!

They listened to our vision, and created a tropical oasis far beyond what we imagined.

They created the most beautiful landscaped yard. I have been told by many of my neighbors the landscaping is truly a picture of perfection.
