I have to tell you once again how much I appreciate Chad. He dropped by to spread the remaining mulch. He noticed I was about ‘spent’ hacking away at a root and offered to finish the job for me. He made quick work of it and it was a huge help! He is a good guy who obviously understands the importance of customer service for Coogan’s.

Not once did we feel we had a reason to worry. Thanks for helping us create exactly what we wanted!”

Roland and Heather DuBois

“Instead of looking out at our tired nondescript landscape, I now am greeted with a beautiful area with a small curved bridge, winding brick walkways, and a stone wall with lots of interesting plantings. It’s like it has all been done for my pleasure…and I guess it has. Tom, thanks for your creativity, your great work and the terrific results.”

John Schwabacher

“We greatly valued Coogan’s ability to do a wide range of services and a turn-key job.

Their designer was not afraid to address problems and was quick to come up with good solutions.”
