Terry is a pleasure to work with. He has a very talented crew. The Scenic Lawns team has done wonderful landscaping for us (both hardscape and softscape) and we couldn't be more pleased with the work. Truly beautiful! A very sincere thank you to Terry and crew.

I have been using Terry and Scenic Lawns for over 20 years. They have done a great job with landscaping, hardscaping, and the lawn. The most recent project was a beautiful driveway and front porch project. Terry did a good job …

I have been using Terry and his team for many, many years. He and his team are knowledgeable, professional, and courteous. Not only did he do a great job of guiding me on choices on what to plant but he also solved a huge water problem I had around my back yard. I would highly recommend Scenic Lawns & Landscaping.

Claire Baker

Scenic Lawns & Landscaping has been taking care of our lawn for the past 15 years. the grass is green and healthy and looks great all year long. They have also done some landscaping that turned out beautiful. They came up with a good idea, a good plan and built it. Quality craftsmanship. I highly recommend them.

We have had Scenic caring for our lawn since we bought our house 9 years ago. When I am out in the yard, it is not unusual for people walking by to compliment the great lawn. Scenic has also done hardscaping and landscaping from building our patio to planting a holly grove.

Jim Coliton

Scenic Lawns & Landscaping did a wonderful job designing and building our two patios, a complicated Borealis stone stairway and a Borealis stone spa deck. We could not be happier and highly recommend Terry and his professional and courteous crew. We plan use them again as future hardscape and landscape needs arise.

Betsy Lord

We had a smallish area that needed to be landscaped to replace unattractive and difficult to maintain plantings. Despite having other larger ongoing contracts, Scenic Lawns got our job done within a couple weeks. An eyesore is now gone, replaced with lovely and controllable plants bounded by an attractive and durable border.

Dee Raimond

Great design by true artists.

James Fitzpatrick

Terry, thank you so much. Our yard looks great and your guys did such good work. We wish you and your family a beautiful holiday.


Scenic Lawn did a WONDERFUL job on our lawn! They were fast, professional, done EARLIER than scheduled, and worked with our fence contractor's schedule to get the job done alongside each other. They worked well with our budget, did not "nickel & dime" us, and gave us great service and products for a more than fair price (believe me I shopped around) they even threw in a couple "extras" at no real cost. Their crew was professional- others crews have had vulgar music/language, smoking on the job, not Scenic, and this is important to me as a mom. If you need a landscaper I would highly, and only, recommend Scenic Lawns and Landscaping.

Angela, Chester MD

Terry, THANKS!! Your guys did a great job, as usual.

Claire B.

Thanks for a super job, as always!


You have given us outstanding service and a yard that Mark and I take pride and pleasure in daily! This is a heartfelt THANK YOU!

Peggy McK.

Overall, my wife and I are very pleased with how everything has come together, we think it is the look we were trying to achieve and your team did a great job. Gilberto has a good eye and is able to provide direction to the rest of the team. They are definitely as asset to your company.

Mark B.

Every single day Terry – we can’t help but smile as we look out over your incredible work. A vision only you could bring to fruition! We feel very fortunate. Thank you. Quick news on our home-front: Our daughter, and her fianc?, have decided they’d like to have their Wedding here (so flippin’ excited). Of course, we owe that decision to you, too – before the landscaping, she was dead-set on anywhere but here. Haha. Then, they came home (from Georgia) at the first of August – and, well, one glance at the backyard and they changed their minds. I realize it seems like a-ways out; but, I have a feeling October 2015 is going to be here before we know it. And, that means, we’ll need to get on your schedule to “do more,” please. ;)

Jenn K., Deal, MD

Dear Dave, Our yard is once again beautiful – thanks to you and your team! We are thrilled with the outcome and how quickly and efficiently the work was completed. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you – we hope to use your services in the future. Thank you very much and best wishes for the remaining summer.

Loretta & Elaine, Queenstown, MD

In the Spring of 2014, Scenic Lawns and Landscaping built a retaining wall at my house to solve an erosion problem caused by improper grading. Terry Cummings, the firm's principal, designed a three level wall system [see attached photos] so that the structure could be built without the serious expense of an engineering study needed for a single high retaining wall. After ordering the materials, Scenic Lawns and Landscaping removed the existing shrubbery and built and planted the wall system over the course of three days. An unforeseen problem with the existing irrigation system was resolved by relocating two sprinkler heads into the planting beds within the wall system where they now irrigate the plantings they contain. The job site was kept neat and clean while they were actively working and they cleaned up each evening.

Upon completion, all debris and excess materials were removed from the site. We are extremely pleased with the final results and strongly recommend this firm for other landscaping efforts.

Peter G., Gambrills MD

The patio looks great. Your crew really worked well together to do a fantastic job. It would be my pleasure to recommend Scenic Lawns. I look forward to showing it off to family and friends.

Tess, Annapolis MD

Terry, I am very pleased with the job your men did. It really looks nice. Thank you for your fine service. Looking forward to your landscape maintenance in Spring.

Charles D., Millersville MD

The patio looks gorgeous! It was such a pleasure for something to finally go right with this house. You have no idea! Best,

Jo, Centreville, MD

I wanted to send this Testimonial to you for the fantastic job you did on our driveway in Stevensville, MD as well as the equally great job on our daughter's patio at their home in Stevensville. You went way beyond what was expected and offered very valuable advice on selections of material as well as the color coordination with our siding. We could not be happier with the outcome. The driveway makes the curb appeal of our house so much better and really helps to make our house stand out (in a good way) in the neighborhood.

We were so pleased with the outcome of our driveway, we insisted that our daughter and her husband contact you to get your advice on the patio they wanted to put in the backyard. They had already received a quote from another contractor and were about to proceed. After talking to Dave Powers, they realized that there were really important aspects of the job which he pointed out to them that the other contractor did not mention. They are very impressed and please with the work that was performed.

We will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone we talk to.
I have attached a few photos of our Driveway for you.
Thanks again for a fantastic job.

Gary T., Stevensville, MD

Crew left shortly ago. Excellent work, as usual. Looks real nice! Thanks,

Hobie, Davidsonville, MD

Hi Terry,I just wanted to let you know that the drainage work you did beside my house last year worked great. During the winter snows and melt runoff, and during the heavy rains we had recently, my swamp disappeared and my neighbor's walk did not flood.

Also, the drainage improvements you made by the carport when you did the patio have made a tremendous difference.

Thanks so much for the good work.

Lynn and Rena, Columbia, MD

Mark and I want to thank you for the work you did on the front of our house. It looks very nice. Thank you for your general landscape advice as we worked through the project.

Martine Owens, Mills, MD

Terry: I sure do love the work you all have done on my property to spruce it up and keep it looking great. Removing those plants has made a huge difference on seeing the water and I love how fresh it all looks. I love the way the new space is so “done” now. I admire it every time I walk/ride by it. Your choices of plants relative to what I love in the plant kingdom are perfect and I thank you for just “taking control.” You and your team are the bomb.

Nancy S., Annapolis MD

Thank you again for all your help and hard work! I am just so thrilled!

Rosemary L., Severn, MD

A big THANK YOU to Dave and the crew at Scenic Lawns and Landscaping. My yard looks amazing. What a transformation. As always, it's a pleasure doing business with your company.

Sharon, Chester, MD

Thanks for your work on the grading. We had a big rain a few days ago and the drainage worked very well. Matt is happy. See you soon.

Beth, Centreville, MD

T- Just got home. The lights look spectacular !!!

Danny B., Annapolis, MD

Just wanted you to know that even though you are not finished we are thrilled with what you have done so far. Mary said to tell you that it looks fabulous!

Jim H., Crofton, MD

Susan and I love our walkway. Your guys did a great job.

John K., Crownsville, MD

Just wanted to tell you Ron and I are very happy with the slate path you made on the side of the yard. We really appreciate you being so responsive to our concerns. It has been a pleasure working with you and your crew, you have made it very stress free for us. The grass looks great; we were pleasantly surprised to see it in place when we got home. Gilberto was there when I left this morning putting the pavers in where the temporary post was. We also like the post you picked out for us, it is nicer than the ones we looked at the Home Depot and Lowes.

Pat M., Bowie, MD

Hi Terry,
I appreciate that you called yesterday to ask if we were pleased with the "spring cleaning". I left for work before the work was completed here and did not get in until late last night. I was gone again this morning but got home in time to look around this afternoon... everything looks great! The crape myrtles look under control again, the beds cleaned, and other pruning was done just as I asked!

Steven T., Bowie, MD

Terry, the driveway is fantastic. Really like how it looks. You did a great job.
