"Ground Affects Landscaping has been a great company to work with. They are kind, knowledgeable, responsive, and do excellent work. I have used their serves for many years for their lawn treatment program ( weed & feed). It is excellent. They have also built an outdoor fireplace. Their craftsmanship was top notch. It is beautiful. We receive so many compliments about the appearance and design. We uses it all the time. I highly recommend Tom and Tanya of Ground Affects. It is a family owned business that operates through Christian principles of morals and ethics. It is a small town business big time vision."

"We had Ground Affects completely redo our back patio and front walk and couldn't be more pleased. They were on time and on budget!"

"Tom came to our home and helped us design a backyard stone patio. The crew worked very hard and did quality work. Nathan H. (crew leader) was very helpful in answering any questions we had during installation. It was a pleasure working with Tanya and Tom at Ground Affects and we highly recommend their services!"

"So happy how it all turned out! Great crew! Thank you so much."

"We have had Ground Affects do several landscaping projects at our home and have always been happy with the results. They are professional and always do a great job!"

"Ground Affects spruced up our landscaping. They did original work in 2015 and have done several additional projects for us. Price has always been competitive, work crews have always been highly professional, friendly and willing to do the extras. They've planted trees, done lawn weed control and designed front of house landscape. Highly recommend their work!"

"Ground Affects transformed our backyard from a single cement slab to a much larger area we can now entertain in. The quality of work was outstanding and the finished product looks great. Tom's team did a great job from start to finish."

"I would hire them again in a heart beat. Friendly, knew what they were doing, professional."

"Excellent Service. We get compliments on our landscaping all of the time. Ground Affects installed a patio and new front walk for us and redesigned the planting beds around our home. We were so pleased with the service, design, and finished product."

"We want to express our very sincere thanks and appreciation to Ground Affects. Our project around our swim spa is beyond our dreams. The crew that installed the materials were very professional and great to work with. We again want to thank you all!"

"This is a very professional, well run business!"

We love our patio and pergola!!!

"We couldn't be any happier with our patio and pergola!!! The outdoor environment Ground Affects created is beautiful, inviting and peaceful. We look forward to using it, whether it be just to relax, or to cook on the grill for ourselves, or to enjoy the company of friends. It genuinely has enabled our lives to be happier. Even in the winter, it gives us comfort to look at the patio and think about the happy times that await when spring arrives.

The Ground Affects team was great to work with. Tom listened to our ideas, offered options and made suggestions. He gave us a time frame for which we could expect the different parts to be completed, and the time frame in which payments should be made. The project was completed in a very timely manner. His team was very professional.

Part of the project included dealing with drainage problems in the area in which the patio was to be built. We are incredibly pleased with that outcome, too. Instead of pooling, the water drains out. And, the newly planted grass is thriving. "

"I have been dealing with ground affects for 10 years and my experience with them in the lawn care as well as patio design has been exceptional. Very courteous staff and have recommended them to anyone who needs help with design and lawn care. A pleasure to be a customer."

"Thank you Ground Affects team for transforming our lakefront yard into a beautiful area we can now enjoy better with family and friends! The work you did is beautiful and honestly better than I even imagined it would look like. Everyone was very friendly and easy to work with. We appreciate all your hard work in the hot summer sun!
Thanks again!

"Very pleased! Came out quickly for the estimate, explained it would be a 3 month wait, which it was, but understandable since we contacted them in July. Kept in close contact as the time approached. Dave and his team did an excellent job, replacing a couple trees, several bushes, trimming up for fall, and sprucing up the place with mulch. Looks great! Tanya in the office always pleasant and responsive. Highly recommended!"

"I was introduced to Ground Affects by my dear friends who had a spectacular backyard pond and gazebo installation. Landscape architect Bryan came out to my new home on Potter's Lake in East Troy and took hours to discuss plans for my yard in 2013. He designed a plan to be executed over a 5 year period and everything has been completed and is absolutely beautiful. The team at Ground Affects is exceptional in every aspect, from communication to workmanship! I love entertaining family and friends and have had rave reviews from all enjoying the lovely surroundings. Beautiful plantings, patios, retaining walls and outdoor lighting were executed perfectly to plan! Their spring cleanups are amazing, where every bed is treated, every planting bed cleaned, trimmed and mulched. Their crews are professional and hardworking in every way.
I will forever remember the day my dad's beautiful metal sculptures were installed at my new home...a labor of love for me by Ground Affects!
I would highly recommend them!!"

"We have been with Ground affects for 18 years, for seasonal lawn maintenance and for clean up and mulching projects. Their excellent service has remained steadfast. The crews are efficient, hard workers who are knowledgeable, polite and respectful of property and person. Thank you Ground Affects ."

"Great company, always answer the phone and are very good communicators! We use Ground Affects for summer and winter property clean up. Zero problems!"

"Thank You for professional services and caring crew to take care of my yard. My yard looks like a Parade Model after spring work and peace of mind after fall clean up! Leaves me to do the chores I like. Doesn't seem like work! Great job...see you next year!"

"I work for Winter Services and Ground Affects does snow removal services for a Post Office of ours. They are one of our best partners! We have not had one complaint from the Post office. They truly do provide the best service and I look forward to working with them again!"

"Utilize this business for snow plowing lawn maintenance and landscaping. Wouldn't use any other company."

"Ground Affects did a great job in restoring my paver patio, and I would highly recommend them. Thanks for a job well done!!"

"Wonderful job by the Ground Affects crew on our patio project. Looking forward to working with them in the future."

"Great company and people. We have worked with them for years.

"Very responsive and dependable."

"These guys were excellent to work with! Their hardscape and landscape designs were wonderful. They listened to what I was looking for and provided the beautiful natural bird/butterfly garden I dreamed of. The landscape foreman incorporated last minute requests without blinking an eye and had great suggestions and did little extras he saw fit. I would definitely use Ground Affects Landscaping again!"

"We couldn't be happier with our finished project by Ground Affects Landscaping. Our patios, sidewalk, planters, greenery and water feature are a page out of Better Homes and Gardens. They were very professional and a joy to work with."

"This is our third time hiring Ground Affects Landscaping. Each time they raised the bar and continue to deliver on amazing work. Most recently we hired them to do some hardscaping and landscaping which included a gas fire. We look forward to many years of enjoyment while looking out to the lake. Great experience all around and would definitely hire again."

"This is just a quick note to express our total satisfaction with the results of the paver patio that Ground Affects completed last week. As shown on the attached pictures, the transformation of our patio area is breathtaking! Not only was the project completed a day sooner than estimated, the quality is outstanding. Adam and his crew were very skilled in their work, and always respectful to us and our property. The Ground Affects crew was an absolute pleasure to work with, from beginning to end."

"They removed buckthorn, added soil, seeded the new lawn and also added a great extension to our front porch. Tom and his crew couldn't have been better. I would highly recommend them for your landscaping needs."

"One of the best services out there. They have been doing my property for the past few years and always a great job. Competitive rates, excellent service and people that care how things are done."

"Ground Affects did an awesome job with our berm, plantings and lighting. You can tell the foreman on the job took great pride in his work. The design and end result was better than I expected. Nice work and a job well done!"

"My wife and I had a mess of a yard after having (2) new wells put in.
I contacted Ground Affects to get an estimate on having final grading and seeding done to fix the mess that was left behind.

From start to finish of the process I was impressed with Tom and his team.

To start with, Tom showed up on time to our estimate appointment. After estimate he gave us a timeframe that his crew would be available to get the work done, and it was done right in that timeframe. The crew was also great to deal with. Showed up on time, did great work, and were very nice.

I would recommend Ground Affects without hesitation and will be contacting them for future projects."

"I am enjoying my beautiful back yard landscape. Everyday I can literally see the plants grow with the help of the rain. It's beautiful. I love how the new stone actually makes the yard look bigger. Your expertise, Adam and the crew did a bang up job. I Love it and have had many comments on how great it looks. Thank you for giving me a beautiful back and side yard. I will happily recommend you to all my friends and family."

"We just can't say enough about how pleased and impressed we are with our completed retaining wall and steps project. In an age of complacency Ground Affects Landscaping is a shining example of excellence. Every team member was friendly, polite and accommodating. The father and son team that constructed our wall, Adam & Quintin, were amazingly hard workers. Their attention to every detail shows in the beautiful results. We have already had several people stop to ask what company did the work. Rest assured that we will be telling everyone about Ground Affects Landscaping."

"They are very efficient and leave the workplace clean and neat after they are done. Great people to work with."

"We just finishing building our new home. Tom and his team were always responsive, respectful, and the quality of their work is outstanding. Highly recommended!

"Ground Affects has done our lawn maintenance for over 10 years. Their prices are competitive and their work professional. I always get a call in advance of when they are planning to be on site. Last year we decided to redo our dated, tired looking landscaping. After getting our input on types, sizes, colors and maintenance of plants, they came up with a great plan (free of charge) and did a fantastic job with installation. Fast forward to this year - all the plants are doing great and we're very happy with the update."

"We have been working with Ground Affects Landscaping since 2013 installing trees, lighting, plantings, mulching, etc. Their work is exceptional!

We had lighting done recently and the care and attention to detail was excellent. Thank you for consistently being great!!"

"Tom, Tanya, Bill, and the entire Ground Affects crew are great to work with. They are willing to work around our baseball game schedules, which at time is difficult, but they happy to do whatever it takes to keep our infield looking great. Ground Affects is also willing to work with us to offer advice and support to many of our projects at Fischer Field. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for Landscaping and Lawncare needs. Jeff Laesch - Jefferson Blue Devils Baseball Team.

"Ground Affects did a transformation of a large, overgrown front planter and a sunken lannon stone walkway, and we are very satisfied with the results. We were able to work directly with Tom, the owner, who was very professional and made sure we understood the proposal before the work was commenced. They were able to reuse many of our plants and remove the unwanted trees/shrubs. The crew did an excellent job in just a couple of days to transform the look of our front yard and drastically improve our curb appeal! We hope to use them again for future projects when they have availability (they are in high demand for good reason)!"

"These folks are incredibly good. Highly professional. Always on time. Affordable. They have taken care of our lawn for several years. Weed control and fertilization. Our lawn is beautiful due to their expertise. We also had Tom and his crew build a stone patio and a retaining wall at our residence. Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for. Very creative competent craftsmen.

"Tom and team make sure to treat the customer well and always provide a great end result.

We just used Tom and team again for our new house and they are still the best around. Mary and team worked hard, were professional, and did a great job."

"It has been 19 years since Ground Affects created our landscape. They installed beautiful lannon stone walls, brick pavers at our front door, and planted numerous trees, shrubs and perennials. Each year they return to do a spring clean up for us and have given us the same friendly and professional service they started with all those years ago. Tom and his team are honest and dependable, and that is why we’ve continued to recommend them to many of our family and friends through the years.

"Contracted to replace rotting crumbling retaining wall. Outstanding job working in really tight space. Hardworking, conscientious crew.
Looks great and efficient well appreciated clean up.

"Ground Affects Landscaping Inc. has been a great company to work with. We had several landscaping needs. From design, tree removal, new planting and more, Tom has been so professional and delightful to work with. Highly recommend working with and using Ground Affects Landscaping Inc."

"They are the absolute best! I live two hours away from my parents, due to health issues they need to be able to get to set appointments during the week and on snowy days I never have to worry about if this will be a challenge for them. I can’t say enough about the peace of mind I get from knowing they don’t ever need to worry about if they will be able to get out of the driveway after a snow storm. Thank you Ground Affects!"

"I work for Winter Services and Ground Affects does snow removal services for a Post Office of ours. They are one of our best partners! We have not had one complaint from the Post office. They truly do provide the best service and I look forward to working with them again!"

"I have had Ground Effects Landscaping since 2015 and I am extremely satisfied with their company. I have about 3 acres of lawn and as a widow it would be impossible for me to stay living here and my country home that love. Their company mows my lawn weekly. Also, I have them fertilize, bag my leaves in the fall, trim my bushes, snow removal, and do landscaping. Tom and Tanya hire the best the employees for which I am very grateful. I get a lot of compliments on how my lawn looks and would highly recommend them."

"Compared to some projects our project was on the smaller side. We had recently replaced our septic system and that area was in disarray to say the least. Bryan came out to talk with us and he really listened to what we said. He gave us a plan that we could implement all at once or in stages that included other areas of our yard. We just love the end result. It is great to look out of our kitchen window and see a beautiful yard again! Foreman Dave and his crew were great to work with. Very professional. They worked hard and got the job done quickly, without sacrificing quality. We are very pleased with the job Ground Affects did and highly recommend them! "

"We recently had a major project (in our budget) done in our backyard. We had 5 estimates and there was NO competition when it came to Bryan and the other sales representatives. NONE AT ALL. He listened to what we envisioned, gave us all the time we needed, gave advice/opinions free of charge, and won us over hands down. He is an irreplaceable asset to your company. Kris and I fell in love with his genuine personality immediately. Because of him, we will shout from the roof tops how much we adore your company and the service it provides. Then, we met your crew... AMAZING! We had an issue with our neighbor, and Mary and the crew saved the day. We are so impressed with your company, the service, and QUALITY WORK you provide. Any issues that arised, you stood behind and corrected. We are SO happy with our patio, and we will be providing positive feedback on Angies list and beyond. Thank you so much. Keep up the great work. Ground Affects is FANTASTIC!

There is no question who we will recommend to all, and no question who we would hire again for any landscaping project. THANK YOU ALL!


"We were introduced to Ground Affects Landscaping by one of your very satisfied customers (Dave Welnetz) this Spring. David contacted Landscape Architect Bryan Clark who immediately followed up with Sandie & I for an appointment.

During our initial meeting, Bryan LISTENED to our ideas regarding what we wanted for our home. Bryan surveyed our property & returned with a comprehensive plan; which included detailed drawings of our new Patio, Outdoor Kitchen with Pergola, Fire pit & "half circle steps" from our four seasons room to our patio. The plan also included beautiful accent lighting to enhance the project.

The rest of our yard needed a "serious make over". Bryan did not disappoint Sandie & I, presenting us with detailed plans of what he would suggest planting in each area of need. It was evident that Bryan's knowledge of planting options gave Sandie & I what we were looking for.

Over a period of four weeks the Ground Affects Team of professionals transformed our yard into the vision Sandie & I shared with Bryan. The Ground Affects Team answered all questions with a friendly professional demeanor exhibiting creativity that comes only from experience.

Sandie & I are enjoying the rest of our Summer with a custom landscaped yard provided by a company dedicated to EXCELLENCE & CUSTOMER SATISFACTION.

We highly recommend Ground Affects Landscaping for anyone's custom landscaping needs. "

"We have had our deck and flowers for 2 years and I love it as much now as when it was installed. Not only is it great to entertain on - it is beautiful looking at it from the inside of the house too.Great crew, great product cannot say enough good things."

"Ground Affects Landscaping Inc. has been a reliable and highly efficient lawn-care, maintenance, and snow removal service for me. After having other services with very disappointing results, I am happy to have found one with high standards for professionalism in quality service. I look forward to future landscaping projects with Ground Affects and highly recommend them. They are an integrity based company. "

"The professional team at Ground Affects can solve all your drainage and grading problems, resulting in a very effective solution with a natural appearance that suits your landscape. The courteous team can design, install and maintain both hard and soft scape. Ground Affects consistently exhibits integrity, reliability and timeliness. We highly recommend Ground Affects...they have been a blessing for many years."

"I was introduced to Ground Affects Landscaping by friends in 2012 and will be forever grateful for the connection. Landscape architect Bryan Clark surveyed my property and listened to my vision. His extensive knowledge of plant materials and landscaping options were evident as we talked. Within weeks, he created a phased plan that was tailored exclusively for my lifestyle, budget and timeline.

Phase 1 in 2013 included major plantings along one side of the property and a beautiful stone retaining wall long my driveway. Path lighting and dramatic up lighting illuminated planting beds, mature trees and my favorite sculptures. Their team of experts were friendly, professional, knowledgeable and took time to answer any and all of my questions.

Phase 2 in 2014 included a patio with major retaining walls, planting beds and lighting.
In two weeks time, the front of my home gained a spectacular outdoor entertaining space, beautiful plantings and breathtaking lighting. The view of my home from the lake went from ordinary to GRAND! The crew was always kind and respectful and available to answer my questions along the way. They were a delight to have here every day. Their masonry skills were incredible and I found myself watching their work for hours on end. It takes knowledge, experience and creativity to work around the existing structures of a home, but they did it with ease, adapting the plan as work progressed.
I am so looking forward to enjoying the space with family and friends this year!

Phase 3 this year will include beautifying a few more areas and developing a planting area that will serve as a sanctuary for the wildlife that is so plentiful in my yard. Early spring scheduling will allow enjoyment of these beautiful additions this year.

I would highly recommend Ground Affects Landscaping and staff of professionals dedicated to EXCELLENCE. Their experience, knowledge, workmanship and outstanding personal service make them a leader in custom landscaping. "

"Thank you for the fabulous job. It is beyond what I had imagined. Your crew was knowledgeable and courteous. Great people to work with."

"I would highly recommend Ground Affects Landscaping. Of all the bids we received, Ground Affects had the best plan at the best price. I can't say enough good things about the entire Ground Affects team. Very accommodating and listened to our concerns and are very hard workers. Always on time, always extremely polite and finished the job on time. I've recommended the Ground Affects team to friends and family and I will continue to recommend them. I plan to bring them back in the future."

"Just want you to know you have a great crew of guys working for you. They were friendly, courteous and really hard workers. We are very pleased with the overall picture. If you ever want us for a reference, you've got it."

"Yes, I love it!! Thanks for getting us in so quickly. I want to let you know that I felt you were the most professional out of all the landscape companies that came out and gave us a quote. You're great with follow up and keeping me updated. It's appreciated."

"The experience we had was excellent from start to finish. You were very professional and we immediately felt comfortable with the non-pressure approach, friendliness and ease of conversation. In scheduling the work, you were communicative and responsive. The crew assigned was VERY professional, experienced, polite and responsive to questions and concerns. The quality of work is superior. We're very happy and we highly recommend this company. How refreshing to run into a well managed company with good people."

"'Thanks' to you and your crew. It is clear to both Jackie and I that your company is professional and will do whatever is necessary to satisfy our needs. It is refreshing to know there are still people like yourself that know what good customer service is all about! We feel strongly that we absolutely selected the right company to complete our landscape project. Again, thank you for a beautiful job."

"Thank you for a job well done. We love our yard so much, and enjoy many days and evenings outside in our backyard. Your crew was so good to work with, they always tried to please. The patios look so good as do all the plantings. We get so many compliments from our guests and neighbors. We don't hesitate to recommend Ground Affects. Thank you to all for working so hard and doing a terrific job."

"Just a short note to thank you and your workers for doing a great job on our lawn project. You were all great to work with and very professional."

"We would like to thank you and your crew for all your hard work. We appreciate the quickness you took to get going on our lawn."

"Thanks-A-Million for the great job you and your crew did on our lawn. It looks great, as does our new Maple Tree. If you don't mind, I have a few friends that I am going to recommend your company to. The yard/landscaping work you provide would be of great value to them."
