"We used Dana Schock twice in the last 18 years, both with amazing results. We cannot find enough wonderful things to say about Dana (and his amazing company). They literally transformed our backyard from a steep boring egress into a soft, unique, and truly spectacular backyard built for privacy, serenity, and as an outstanding oasis for entertaining. Dana took what looked like an impossible backyard and turned it into what all our friends called the country club, complete with pool, outdoor kitchen, fireplace, multiple decks, sitting areas, and still left plenty of room for a soccer field that turned into a skating area in the winter. We have gotten so much enjoyment from our new outdoor living space that we find ourselves wanting to spend more time outdoors. We will never forget the first time we laid eyes on Dana’s hand drawings. We could never have imagined what he created on paper and then he made it come to life right in front of our eyes! His masons worked tirelessly through the winter with small tents in below freezing temperatures to carefully create the perfect fireplace and stone retaining walls. Dana is an extremely talented artist with an unwavering commitment to quality. We can’t imagine working with anyone else and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a superbly awesome landscape architect."

"Dana and his team turned our Cape Cod backyard into a summer retreat. He ensured us that every detail, from the rocks around the pool to the placement of various trees and plants, would be executed with our vision in mind, and it was. We couldn’t be happier with the results. It is truly our little piece of paradise."

"I have worked with Dana on several projects over the past 7 years. From the earliest conception of my primary residence to the most recent project at my summer home, Dana has been innovative in his designs, passionate about each project, willing to accept my input, and extremely flexible whenever I wanted to modify or enhance the plan as we went along. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Dana to anyone who is looking for an exceptionally talented landscape architect with limitless imagination."

"It is my pleasure to recommend Dana Schock, landscape architect. Dana was wonderful to work with through every stage of our project from the initial meeting, to the design and planning phase, and the final installation. He is very approachable and willing to listen to any and all ideas. He understand and is comfortable working within a specified budget and is thoughtful on where to make cost adjustments. He managed subcontractors for the stone work and plantings so all went very smoothly. You will be in good hands with Dana."

"We have known and worked with Dana Schock for over 10 years. he has transformed our property from a wooded two-acre lot into a dream land of amazing hardscaping and landscape with lifestyle spaces all over the yard. When the kids were young, it started with a secret garden, playhouse and climbing structures, as we all got older we expanded, into outdoor living with cooking, bar, hot tub, and amazing dining seating. Most recently he transformed our driveway into beautiful parking and a sport court. We can honestly say that Dana is the very best in the business and we could not recommend him."

"Dana Schock gets my recommendation for any landscape design project. He has done 2 projects for us and could not be happier. He is very easy to work with and is a very good listener. Rather than try to sell his ideas to us, he listens to what we want and how we want to use the space. He then crafts a solution to match that. He is creative and practical at the same time. A true professional!"
