  • I would recommend this business

We recently had Ben and his team revive our tiny backyard and install a rustic path with steps in our side yard. Apparently, they were booked until winter but because out project was pretty small, they were able to squeeze us in a weekend a few months after I contacted them. The process was very smooth, from start to end and Ben was easy to reach via email throughout the duration of the project. He was very understanding of our budget limit and made his best efforts to keep the project within our budget. He was also very accommodating and understanding when I requested some improvements to a structure they had installed. Also, he had some extra plants from a previous project that he donated to ours, which was really sweet of him

Ben and the entire crew were all amazing to work with from the initial consultation through completion of our project. Ben took the time to carefully explain each element of the design proposal to make sure we understood all the necessary details. We encountered a few delays with the crazy winter snowstorms and some unexpected issues (none of which were the fault of Ross NW Watergardens) and Ben and the team were always quick to communicate on the status of the project and went above and beyond to help us resolve them. The end result was better than we could have expected and we are thrilled with how everything turned out. I would recommend Ross NW Watergardens to anyone looking for a courteous, professional and high-quality landscaping company.

We called three different landscapers for quotes. Ben's was the highest...but, he was the most thorough. We got the feeling the other companies were used to a specific set of plants and would just give you some cookie-cutter landscaping. Ben took the time to talk us through the project, 3-dozen emails, 20 different plant and tree combinations....etc. He was so great to work with and the crew he brought was respectful and professional.

Ben, Joe and the team helped me completely reimagine my landscape. This started with a landscape design. My house is a MIdcentury Modern and Ben understood how to make the house shine.

Once the design was complete Jow and the crew took over. The final result was amazing! My landscape looks fantastic.

Customer Testimonials

Working with Ben, Joe and crew was the most problem-free, productive, enjoyable job we’ve ever done with a contractor. And since we moved into a home that had been largely untouched since 1954 we have hired a lot of contractors over the past 5 years. It has been a pleasure and we think our backyard is nothing less than breathtaking.


Ben is a master. We are so happy with how our landscaping turned out. He stuck with us over a long renovation, never got flustered by anything going wrong, and, of course, helped plan and install an incredible front and back yard for our house. We could not recommend him highly enough. Worth every penny.


Ross NW was incredibly easy to work with from start to finish. My project was on the smaller end, but I still felt like they prioritized my project and kept me updated every step of the way. The finished product is amazing and has totally transformed my backyard space. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is considering a landscaping or hardscaping project.


I contacted four different companies for quotes to get my small urban backyard turned into a patio. Two of the companies never bothered to return me a quote. Ben and his team at Ross NW were the fastest to respond and their quote was much more competitive than the other companies.

The work was done in the time frame he promised and I was happy to find that the quoted price was the final price as well. In addition they were able to work their time table around mine nicely and the patio looks beautiful!

Would highly recommend them for any project!
