The Saluda Hill Experience is unmatched, but don’t just take our word for it
It was such a pleasure to work with Phil and his crew! They transformed my old cracked decks into an amazingly beautiful patio. They helped to make my dream into reality! The entire team was very professional, friendly, helpful and everyone really knew what they were doing! They were always there to listen, answer, help, solve and cooperate! My backyard project turned out exactly what I wanted within my budget. Their work was OUTSTANDING! Everything was beyond my expectations! Saluda has the best customer service I’ve experienced by far! They even follow up after work done and spend time writing you a ‘thank you’ card! I can not ask for more! They truly care about you and stand behind their work 100%. I’m looking forward to my second project to work with Saluda and I have no doubt it will be another outstanding job that we’ll get lots of compliments on from our neighbors! Why pay more than $100 for a consultation or design without knowing what you will be getting in return? Why not to give Saluda a try and I promise you won’t be disappointed!
We moved into a new house in Jan that had an existing drainage system & irrigation system that weren’t working properly. We had them come out and give us an estimate on fixing the issues as well as building us a firepit. Phil Soltes was excellent at giving us details and suggestions. The crew that did our work was efficient and friendly. Kelvin, the job foremen & Robert, the area Supervisor were eager to make sure “my” firepit was just what I wanted and it is!! In addition we can already see the difference in the drainage & irrigation systems. I definitely recommend their work !! Thank you Saluda Hill Landscapes!

Lynnea, Kelvin and their team did a terrific job on landscaping our backyard! From design to planting everything went smoothly. All the plants were in great shape when delivered and the crew did an outstanding job of placing them. The paver walkway looks amazing. Thanks for a terrific job!!
The patio looks great! We thoroughly enjoyed working with you on this project. Thank you so much!
Jack & Debbie Alexander
“Very pleased with the transformation of our yard. When you absolutely need a yard done, with everything involved (irrigation, design, implementation) and can’t do it yourself, these are the “go to” folks to make it happen. Well supervised and professional.”
“Working with Phil and his crew of guys to plan and install landscaping in our bare backyard was such a pleasure. It was done on time and with such care and it came out so beautiful. The crew was nice, conscientious, and really took pride in their work. Everyone we’ve dealt with at Saluda has been so nice, helpful, and accommodating....there is no one else we would think of using in the future.”
"Reliable, Always meets the schedule of a high production builder. Very competent and timely. Always works with us."

“This was the third project we've been privileged to work with Saluda Hill Landscapes and all three have been wonderful. The entire team is professional, timely, cooperative and responsive to any and all questions. We could not be more pleased. Thanks for your wonderful service.”
“We wanted to say a sincere thank you and recognize how amazing the team at Saluda Hill have been during the process of building and moving into our new dream home. Starting with the design, Phil and Richard were so patient and attentive to our needs and style and what they came up with was truly wonderful. It was even better than what we had hoped for and encompassed all our desires for a modern, beautiful, and fully functional landscape design. When it came time to do the install, the Saluda Hill team was there everyday, always willing to listen and answer our questions. The team's dedication to detail and wanting to ensure our happiness was something we will always be grateful for and is rare to find. Everyone from the supervisors to the crew members were friendly, helpful, and always complimentary of our home. We could tell they took great pride in their work and were personally invested to see our project completed to the best of their ability despite the fact that the size and scope of our project was significant with many difficult challenges. We also appreciated how Saluda Hill was able to handle all of our landscaping needs. From design to install, lighting to irrigation, and ongoing maintenance, it was great to know we could trust one company to handle any and everything related to our landscaping project. As a final testament to their excellence, Phil and the entire Saluda Hill team have been incredibly generous and thorough with any and all follow-up requests. They never failed to return our calls or get back to us quickly and they always worked to resolve problems quickly and professionally. They even helped us after several major storms with problems that were not their fault but due to mother nature only. That is just who they are. We would recommend Saluda Hill without hesitation as the rare company that has the resources to handle any project but still provides the personal attention that is so important when building your dream home!”
“Dealt with Lee for a quote and Sheree for scheduling and billing. Both were very professional. Worked with me on the projects and were reasonable and within budget. Installed French drain and moved sprinkler heads. Both times they came out, the guys got right to work and did a great job. They were very friendly! I recommend Saluda Hill!”
“I’d Like to commend your crew that did the Oakcreste project for us. Working around a lot of other trades in cramped conditions with rain and tough terrain and soils, they somehow managed to get the job done. Please let them know we appreciate all they did for us. Their work really adds to the overall look of the job. I look forward to working with them again in the future.”
A.J Pete Kellos, Jr., Division Manager/ Great Southern Homes
“We are new to South Carolina and knew no one nor had any history with any landscaping companies. We first encountered Saluda Hill at the Lawn & Garden Expo at the fairgrounds this spring. My wife and I were impressed with the professionalism and helpfulness that the staff displayed at that first encounter. We followed up with their Design group and after an on site visit we had a proposal that we were pleased with. We obtained two other bids and found Saluda Hill to be right in the "ballpark", and we felt comfortable with them as an organization. We knew when they were coming but had no idea how many staff would be at our home or how quickly and how thoroughly they would complete the project (and thoroughly clean up after the work was done- including cleaning the street)! The landscaping work they did looked great. We recommend them as strongly as possible and one of our neighbors are currently using them based on watching our experience and seeing how professionally they work.”
Rex and Roszan Conger
“To date, we are overall very pleased with the outcome of the project provided by Saluda Hill at our home. It is rare to encounter contractors who do exactly as they promise in their proposal. In fact Saluda Hill went above and beyond to ensure we were satisfied with their performance. Our project was worked diligently, professionally, and achieved a desirable outcome. It appears to be draining well after the hard rains that we have had this summer. We're hopeful that we'll see the same results in the winter when we have had significant issue, and are confident that Saluda Hill would follow up should we have problems. We remain very pleased with the work Saluda Hill completed at our home, and we believe we received a good value for the money we invested in this project.”
Bill and Kathy Beard
“The guys came out on Friday to move the sprinklers for us. Colby was very helpful! He was a pleasure to talk to and took some extra time to answer some of my other questions. He is a great asset to the company!”
“Saluda Hill Landscapes is an outstanding landscape company that demonstrates excellence in customer service. Landscape Designer Phillip Soltes is a strong, dedicated industry professional who focuses on making clients feel they are his number one priority. Phil's designs are creative, and demonstrate a true understanding of customer needs. Phil leads outstanding teams to carry out contractual work, is responsive and accessible to his clients with efficient follow through, and responsible project management. Saluda Hill teams demonstrate courtesy, professionalism, and excellence in the work they complete.Every team member that helped transform our blank slate back and front yards into a complete paradise displayed a positive "can do" attitude, and a desire to "do the job right." The three week transformation of our property included a full landscaping package complete with lighting, irrigation, pergola, paver patio with firepit, paver walkways, and beautiful handpicked nursery items. No request was too much to ask of this team. Their follow through and attention to detail during final walkthrough was top notch. The Saluda Hill Landscape Team is comprised of quality people who truly care about their customers and stand behind their work 100%. What a true pleasure it has been working with this company! Saluda Hill Landscapes transform dreams into reality with the highest professionalism! Call them today, they are the best!”
“Wanted to take a brief moment to share with you how thoroughly impressed my wife and I are with Saluda Hill. Simply put, your team is the best at what they do! One only needs to look at the amazing work they have done with my residence. Phil and Eric took a less than appealing backyard and transformed it into an amazingly beautiful resort style backyard. Additionally, Travis and the ground maintenance team have done spectacular work in maintaining our front and backyard (landscape/hardscape); everyone that visits our home compliments the beauty of the newly installed Empire Zoysia and the meticulous detail of the cutting and edging. Finally, your admin and finance personnel are a joy to work with; always courteous, professional, and helpful.
The Lewis family wishes you and your team a happy holiday season and we look forward to a strong and continuing relationship! Please pass on to the Saluda team the appreciation, admiration, and respect we have them! Thanks for all you have done and continue doing to make our home a wonderful place to live, enjoy, and have lots of fun!”
“I’d like to take the time to say job well done by your company. I have had Kelvin and his crew come out to my house twice now to do additional landscaping for me. They cleared my lot, put in additional sprinkler zone and laid sod. Most recently they moved a bush and installed a new sprinkler head in preparation for other improvements we had planned. They were always very professional, helpful, and courteous; very eager to do the job right. I would be happy to recommend them any time.”
“As you know, I am a liaison for the homeowner’s and/or residents of the Palmettos concerning our landscaping issues. For almost all issues, I work directly with Michael. I am so impressed with his work ethic, knowledge, and skills that I wanted Saluda Hill to know they have a very valuable employee in Michael.
When I am trying to talk to Michael about various issues he never acts like he is in a hurry. He is consistent in his attention to each detail and is quick to check out complaints and have the problem taken care of. One other important thing I want to mention is Michal listens. He offers suggestions, which I like. The bottom line is he makes sure the job is done correctly and I enjoy working together with him to make sure our neighborhood’s appearance is at its best.”
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team at Saluda Hill Landscapes for making our backyard oasis dream come true! We really appreciated the way you designed our landscape plan with us in mind.
We watched in amazement from the start to finish while each of the Saluda Hill team members played their roles in the construction of our backyard oasis project without skipping a beat!
Our backyard has now become an extension of our home that we enjoy and are proud to show off to friends, family, and neighbors. Needless to say we practically live in the backyard now! Again, Thank you Saluda Hill Landscapes for a job well done.”
Jimmy and Lucy Fore
“Once the design was done, the team showed up, they worked hard, they cleared the soil and put the grass down so that it blended well with the yard and house. The irrigation system was also well-installed. We were very happy with the final results. The layout of the grass really accentuates the lot and house.”
“Brian was on time. Pleasant, knowledgeable, took care of the problem right away, and updated me before leaving with a smile. He is a wonderful representative of your company!”
“Wonderful landscaping with this company and I've used a few with my new homes. I've bought plz give them a chance to show you what they can do!!!!!! I promise you won't be disappointed!!!!!”
“I could not be more pleased with the work. The value we received for the price we paid was incredible. The design team was awesome, and the gentlemen that actually did the work, followed the plans flawlessly. I even asked to make a small change at the end, and it was met without missing a beat. The work was started and completed on schedule as promised. Saluda Hills did an awesome job. I would recommend them for any landscape job without hesitation.”
“Saluda Hill did great job of designing and implementing a complete refurbishing of our yard. New trees, bushes, grass and flowering plants. Also installed an irrigation system and a outdoor lighting system. Wish we had done it all when we first built our house 25 years ago. The cost was less than I thought it would be. They were recommended to us by a friend and now we recommend them to other friends.”
“We retained Saluda Hill Landscapes in April 2017 to re sod our front yard with St. Augustine. They graded the front yard, backfilled with topsoil and took no shortcuts. They more than met my expectations in the quality of their work. I am a picky and hard person to please and I am glad I used them. Thanks to Shawn and the grounds crew for a wonderful job! I will recommend to all my neighbors and friends.”
“As you know this past February 2013 I resigned as Landscaping Director of Carriage Hills Lake Subdivision. With that said I want to tell you how impressed I have been over the last 7 years of working with you and your staff. The Home Owners have been very complimentary on how well the subdivision looks and as well as the professionalism of your staff.”
“We retained Saluda Hill to do the outdoor design and landscaping for our new home, which in addition to the multitude of plants included irrigation and lighting spread out over 3 acres of property. We were extremely happy with both the overall experience and final result- so much so that we decided to use their Ground Maintenance division as well. We have not been disappointed. The thing that has impressed me the most in my dealings with Saluda Hill is the professionalism of everyone on their team. From the initial days of design to the current biweekly maintenance schedule, they have all been incredibly receptive and immediately responsive. I recommend them without reservation.”
“Thanks for the great job on the backyard of our home in Chapin. Looks great and you did everything you promised. Your guys were great and always concerned with us as a customer. Upon Finishing you left everything perfect from the irrigation to the new sod. If any potential customers would like to hear my story or see your results, please don't hesitate to enlist my help.”
“We would certainly recommend Saluda Hill to friends and family, and will use them again as the need arises. We actually had fun with this project and it inspired us to do other beautification projects around our home. Thank you Saluda Hill!!!!”

"...dealing with these other landscapers just reinforces my belief that y'all are the best around.I mean that seriously. We DO appreciate what y'all do and the professionalism with which you do it!"
"I have good news to report. Sheree called me Friday morning and informed me that the trees will be planted. They were indeed planted and look wonderful!...she did in fact come through and plant perfect trees to my specification at my expected day. I can not appreciate that enough. I run my own business and I appreciate her making it happen. That may mean more than it being done in the first place!"
"My husband called the day before Thanksgiving....the day before...we needed a total yard makeover. That is what we got!! They hustled and made it happen!! Our yard looks like it never has!!! Thank you for the amazing work and the attention to detail!!!”
Ashley Ellison Abbott
"So thrilled with our yard!!! We have been using our outdoor patio and grill non-stop and can't wait to throw some amazing parties this summer. Saluda Hill did an amazing job and they were very professional. I fully recommend them to anyone who has an upcoming landscaping project. Thanks guys!!!"
"Can't say enough about Jose Ruiz, Marcelo Gallegos, Andres Beliz, Valente Saldana and Richard Chalupa of Saluda Hill Landscapes. They listened to what I wanted, executed, and delivered. I appreciate their hard work in this crazy summer heat and would highly recommend them. Thanks!"
