Joe was super! He was professional, thorough, timely, and very friendly. He gave us an estimate of work to be done and adhered to it. His estimate of the length of the project was very nearly correct. His crew was very small and Joe supervised and was always present. He was very flexible when we proposed a few changes in the project. We are very pleased with our end results!
Joe and his team outdid themselves on my project. Now days it’s hard to get a bid on a project much less have them show up and complete it when they say they will! Joe gave me a date and time to start and finish. He kept his word and exceeded my expectations by starting earlier and finishing earlier. But the best part about the whole project was his commitment to communication. Joe ALWAYS responded to my calls, emails and little daily notes. (He really liked my little notes.) The next best thing about the guys is that they always left the area completely picked up and cleaned, EVERY DAY! Not something expected but certainly appreciated and thoughtful. And the last thing? My retaining wall is beautiful and perfect! Thanks Joe! Deb
Joe is a craftsman who loves his materials and what he can do with them creatively. He takes his time in getting his work exactly right. He is a true artist!
Absolute professional. Joe has many years of practical experience not to mention his theoretical expertise on landscaping in general. Highly recommended. Wouldn’t have anyone else do work for me except for Roots Landscaping.
Summer of 2016. Our home has a walk out basement with a leaning retaining wall that was stone faced. Other companies said it had to be removed. Not only did Joe and his crew save it, the finished landscaping project was outstanding. We would recommend Joe and his staff to handle any project your considering. He will be honest and truthful on how it can be completed and come in on budget.
Roots Landscape took our dead yard from dirt and weeds to a fully landscaped paradise, and they even finished a day early and under budget courtesy of re-using some of our old broken irrigation system. Joe was easy to work with, listened to what we wanted, and delivered an incredible result. He and his crew showed up on time every morning, worked the entire day, and always cleaned up before leaving. After looking at several landscapers in the Missoula area the choice was easy to make and I would highly recommend Roots to other homeowners.
Hire Joe Bartuska, Roots Landscape LLC., to do your hardscape and landscape project now!!!
We have remodeled and landscaped three homes in Missoula in the last seven years. Therefore, we have also worked with many local companies and independent professionals. Joe Bartuska is, on every level, above them all.
Three years ago we had a large hardscape plan done for our home by an out of state designer. It included a fireplace, waterfall, kitchen, and a 10ft. diameter circular pattern in the paver base. It consisted of thirty-six palettes of block and pavers.
We consulted several hardscape contractors, but were disappointed when there was little follow up from our initial meetings. We turned to the internet and found Roots Landscape LLC. and called for an appointment. We met with Joe the very next day. The first meeting was great. Joe was easy to talk with and he showed real interest in our job. We asked him to suggest any changes that would work better for our backyard. Within a few days he returned with his ideas and a start plan. Ultimately because of those changes, there was enough material left to install two pillars with lights on each side of our driveway entrance. After the entire hardscape job was completed, Joe designed landscaping with our Montana weather and wildlife in mind. We are thrilled with our new outdoor environment and so are our friends and family.
We hired Joe because, in his words, “I like challenges”. He is creative and a very smart manager of time and materials. He listens and gives practical understandable advice. He is able to manage the job as a general contractor, paying attention to all the details for his client.
During the installation we witnessed Joe’s undeniable work ethic! He showed up promptly everyday with his crew, materials, and equipment ready to go. Our neighbors often commented that they were very impressed with how clean and organized the job site was at the end of every day. .
Joe is always positive, honest, and has a great laugh. He will participate with you in your excitement because he loves his work. We are looking forward to working with him again as soon as possible!
