Our best compliments come from our happy customers.


I have used Allentuck Landscaping for about thirty years, both at my previous address and the present one. They have always done outstanding maintenance and planting work, and have my full and enduring confidence. (The categories below are filled in only because this site requires that they be. The "date," "project" and "cost" have no relevance.)

We needed freshening and modernization of our patios in front and rear of our home. We really didn't know what we wanted, but they needed work on foliage, brickwork and some drainage issues. So we called Bruce Allentuck, as we knew he would provide the design ideas and intelligent suggestions for us. Many folks can do the work, and may even be cheaper, but few can provide the ideas and design work that Allentuck can, backed up by excellent execution. And sure enough, his suggestions were spot-on with what we had in mind. We agreed on a price - which we felt was quite reasonable - and date and his workers performed an excellent job in the agreed upon timeframe, and they kept the worksite extremely clean. To be honest, there was one small task that was not completed, but a quick e-mail to them was all that was needed to get the job completed quickly. These things happen, and what is most important and most telling about the quality of the company, is their follow-through. We were very pleased and they will be the first folks we call if we need any other projects.


It is a pleasure to work with Bruce Allentuck - He is very knowledgable, and approaches his work very professionally - i.e. he always makes sure that he knows what we need and works with us to go through options. He does his work when he says he will. He is very responsive - returning calls - responding to inquiries.


Allentuck has provided landscaping services for us for over 17 years. They designed and installed a front walkway and garden when we first moved in the house. Later they rebuilt a stone retaining wall and patio in the backyard that had been incorrectly built by another contractor. Recently they built a stepping stone stairway down our backhill and installed landscaping and ground cover. Although the company has grown over the years they have retained the ability to have direct contract with the owner, Bruce. They have been as responsive for the smaller jobs as the larger ones.

The project time and cost reflects the patio and backhill project stied above. The time period for those two projects was summer 2010 to summer 2011 .


My company worked in conjunction to restore a stormwater management facility that was in need of proper landscaping technique and upkeep on maintenance to conform with county requirements. Everyone on the Allentuck team was professional, knowledgeable, and the project upon completion was beautiful as well as functional. I would work with them again to ensure efficient project design and implementation.


The company has done a superb job of the timber retainer wall (10 ft X 120 ft). Further, the team also regraded and improved the overall looks of our backyard. The workmanship was outstanding. We are extremely satisfied with the company and the team.


We just had Allentuck revamp out front landscaping--ripping out all of the old (including some overgrown bushes and a large, dead tree) and putting in new plantings, lighting, and a new landing. This company was refreshingly wonderful to deal with, from Bruce, the owner, who kept us up-to-date with the work schedule, to Jodie, the designer, who was wonderful and worked with us to get what we wanted within our budget, to the super nice foreman, to the guys who showed up and did amazing work. We really couldn't be happier. It's so nice to know there are companies out there who are still concerned with doing good work and being good people. Just an example among many: Bruce emailed us upon completion of the job and said that, because we had plantings done in November, he'd be doing an inspection in the spring to make sure everything "took" and is looking the way it should.

As for cost ($10K), Allentuck wasn't the cheapest bid we got, but they also weren't the most expensive. The small increase from the cheapest seems insignificant compared with the excellence and customer service Allentuck provided. We had a less-than-stellar experience with a landscaping company last year, which makes me wish we found Bruce and his company sooner. Live and learn!


We recently hired Allentuck Landscaping to design and construct a carderock stone wall and flagstone patio on our property in Chevy Chase, Md. Bruce Allentuck was instrumental in developing the design for the project as well as working through the permit process. Bruce was very patient throughout the process and developed creative solutions that meet our needs and satisfied the Village of Chevy Chase. When it came time to build the project, Bruce and his team communicated very well. We always knew when his crew would be at our house and when the various stages of the project would be complete. His crew was respectful of our property and our neighbor's property. They left a clean jobsite every day.

In addition to the stone work, Bruce recommended and installed plantings to complement the existing landscaping and newly installed stone work.

I would highly recommend Bruce

Bruce was referred to us many years ago by a contractor/friend. Boy am I glad he did! The work they do is unbelievable. It's hard to find an organization that l...


For over 10 years I've been very impressed by the high quality and professionalism of Allentuck Landscaping. From the president - all the way down to the daily laborers - each project gets done with enthusiasm and great care. Most of the workers have been with the company many years. After serving several years on the board of directors of Flints Grove HOA, I've often enjoyed dealing with the president, Bruce Allentuck. Every year, without hesitation, our HOA confidently renews his contract. All who visit the Westleigh Recreation Club ( our community pool & tennis ) are impressed by the landscaping and beautiful stone work. Contact me for additional comments: DouglasClark99@HotMail.Com


I have used Allentuck for 15 years and wish my new home had enough of a garden to continue using them ( I may even for a small sized lot). I wish all companies were run as Bruce Allentuck runs his-listening to the customer and responding to reasonable requests, open to discussion, personally fields questions and visits homes. Even if things were not always done correctly the first trim (rare) they were promptly corrected with no hassle or hesitation. I enjoyed working with them and having them help me keep my exterior beautiful. Thanks Bruce and company!


We have been using Allentuck to maintain the grounds of one of our properties in Bethesda, Maryland since 2014. Allentuck is very responsive and the work is of very high quality. It's one of the best contractors we've used for a long time. Highly recommend this company to anyone looking for landscape maintenance.

I have worked with Allentuck Landscaping for the past 18 years. We have done numerous projects together, landscaping, lawn maintenance, and hardscaping. I look forward to summer when my pots are planted and they bloom. As well as the plantings around my yard. They are responsive to questions and will spruce up your house prior to any party or gathering you are having. I would highly recommend them for any type of project you have.

My wife and I selected Allentuck Landscaping Company based on the positive feedback we received from our neighbors who used Bruce's firm. Allentuck Landscaping redid the greenery at the entrance of our community. Throughout the entire process Bruce kept us up to date with the status of the project and quick to respond to any questions. Bruce clearly developed a project that was exactly what my wife and envisioned. In addition, he presented to us the layout before the start of it. Also, his crew worked consistently. They arrived promptly and finished within two weeks. We are thrilled with how the landscape job turned out and will be sure to use Allentuck Landscaping for future jobs.

Excellent Value for the price. Professional, on time, and top quality product. I plan to hire Allentuck Lanscaping again for my next project.


Allentuck Landscaping consistently surpasses my expectations both in terms of the actual work that they do and the customer service they provide. What I most admire about the company is that you can really tell that they live their core values and care about the work they do and the environment in which they do it. I highly recommend Allentuck Landscaping for anyone who is need of such a service.


I have contracted Allentuck Landscaping over the years to do design work, major landscaping, lighting and hardscaping. What sets this company apart is Bruce Allentuck, the owner. Bruce is so professional, spends whatever time it takes to understand my needs and ideas, provides a complete solution, and oversees the work. The plants that he supplies are of the highest quality. I have never felt the need to be onsite while the crew is here. He and his team come at the time they said they would. Allentuck is not likely to be the cheapest bid you get, but I would highly recommend you call Bruce to discuss your project. You will then see for yourself what sets this company apart from its competition.


We had water damage in our basement. Needed regrading of foundation, installation of new plantings. Bruce was responsive and helpful in planning project. We are pleased with the new grading and landscaping that was done by Allentuck.
