Home / From our customers

Blackbear Landscape Design has a long history of happy, satisified customers, many of whom have been with us for years. Here’s what some of them have to say:


“I have been more than pleased with the design of my yard including the sod and stone. ‘The best yard in Ocean Park’ is the common expression whispered amongst my neighbors. Meanwhile, the installation of the bricks at the front entranceway have given a very artistic and inviting path to my home. Thank you Black Bear Landscaping. I will always highly recommend you.”

The jobs have always been well done- in a courteous and prompt manner. Their price has been in line with similar companies. I would recommend them to others.”

Beth Boland

“Jack and his team completed a project for us about a year ago. We needed our patio reconstructed and knew from the start that we could trust Black Bear Landscaping to get the job done and get it done well. Not only did they build our new patio, but they added special character to our new area with granite steps as well as shrubs and flowers. We now have a beautiful outdoor space to entertain company for years to come.”

Jed Troubh – Falmouth, Maine

“The work took approximately 1 month to complete and turned out fantastic. My family could not have been happier. The quality of work done was first rate, even in high heat when the temperatures moved into the 90’s. They took the time to go beyond what was required and achieve the vision we were looking to accomplish. The crew was always polite and hard-working and they were not satisfied until things looked perfect. Jack offered great suggestions along the way for improving the job and I ended up incorporating the ideas into the job for minimal added cost.

I will continue to do business with BlackBear Landscaping in the future. Their work is of high quality and I trust the crew and believe they look out after our property as their own.”

Mark Rioux, Saco Maine
