  • Phillip M. Long Beach, Calif.

    I've used the services of Midwest Landscaping on two occasions now and I couldn't be more pleased. Ed brings good suggestions and vision to the particular job, working with any ideas or needs the client may have as well as working within a set budget or other constraints. He is very knowledgeable, highly dependable and takes great pride in his work-qualities that are hard to come by these days. I feel Midwest Landscaping could handle any landscaping needs big or small, professional or for the home. I would not hesitate to give him a call for any landscape work.

  • William P Gardena, Calif.

    Ed Wallace did a fantastic job on our yard, converting our old lawn to drought tolerant landscaping, including helpful consultation on the design and switching the existing sprinklers to a drip system for the new plants. Ed was responsive and easy to get in touch with throughout, and his communication skills were much appreciated, particularly concerning how to stay on budget while getting the features we wanted. He delivered great value. The final results exceeded our expectations and we will definitely call him again if we decide to add anything to our now beautiful yard.

  • Chris O. ​Long Beach, Calif.

    Ed came and did a site consultation for my front yard. Are is very knowledgable and provided me with so many great ideas. I have some unique challenges in my yard and he came up with some great solutions. Also, it is pretty obvious that Ed loves what he does-a quality that goes a long way in any field of work. I will definitely hire him to do my install !

  • Jeff B. ​Long Beach, Calif.

    Midwest Landscaping is great. The owner, Ed was very knowledgable and helpful. He repaired an existing irrigation system for us that had many surprises and challenges along the way all of which he fixed at a very reasonable price. The landscaping he did looks great and he gave us a ton of advice on pest control, maintenance and easy projects we could do to continue to improve the yard. I would highly recommend Midwest Landscaping to anyone.
