  • Liz F., Princeton NJ

    Rik and I have worked together for nearly 10 years. It has been a wonderful relationship, and I can’t imagine landscaping our property without him. He excels at maintenance, and I am totally confident in leaving things in his hands when we are away. He has a great knowledge of plant material and a wonderful flair for design. His ethics of hard work and honesty are very refreshing, not to mention his great sense of humor….a must for anyone with whom I work. I work a great deal in the garden and love sharing it all with Rik. I could highly recommend him to anyone…..if they were worthy of his talents.

  • Scott Tapp, Bartlett Tree Experts-Local Manager, New Jersey

    I began working with Richard A. McCoy Horticultural Services in the Princeton area in 2006. Working together at several premier properties I quickly saw that Rik was equally concerned with the health of the plants at each property as he was with the natural approach to the plant health care program being performed there. He shares the same commitment to environmental stewardship and providing a sustainable, naturally healthy landscape as Bartlett Tree Experts does. It has been my experience that Rik and his crews pay attention to the smallest of details and are a pleasure to work with at even the most demanding of clients.

    Richard A. McCoy Horticultural Services is far ahead of their competition by being able to look at plant health in a holistic manner. That means taking into account the site conditions and other factors in an attempt to treat the actual problems, rather than the symptoms as most do. Please don’t hesitate to call then if you are looking to make a change from the ‘run of the mill’ services that seem to be everywhere today!

  • Ben Fieman, Landscape Architect, Lenox, MA.

    Having worked together on one of Princeton’s premier properties together for over ten years, it is a testimony to the high quality of workmanship and professionalism that Richard A. McCoy Horticultural Services offers. All landscape projects evolve through a period of growth and decay and the ability to resolve the ongoing projects that present themselves separate the experts from the inexperienced. In addition to having the full capability to deal with hardscape issues such as masonry, carpentry, and drainage projects, Richard has a passion for plants. In my career working with landscape contractor’s and grounds supervisors, his in-depth understanding for the vast palette of plant selections, and as important, an understanding for the needs and growing requirements for each plant selection to flourish, set him apart. All homeowners want to see as many of those ‘magic moments’ in their properties as possible, and Richard has the knowledge, experience and works to a high degree to achieve this.

  • Constance W., Princeton, NJ

    My yard is proof that Richard A. McCoy is an expert horticulturist. He is a highly skilled and knowledgeable professional who listens to my needs and offers appropriate recommendations. From “Spring Clean-up,” throughout the summer and into the fall, my yard looks wonderful. Richard A. McCoy has a pleasant and agreeable manner. His services are of the highest quality.

  • Collaborative Law Practice Group, LLC, Hillsborough, New Jersey

    I have utilized the services of Richard A. McCoy Horticultural Services Inc. from the inception of the building of my home. He graded the landscape, planned the design and has cared for our lawn from the beginning. It has been clearly apparent that Richard’s plantings, advice and care has afforded me the most beautiful and healthy lawn in our new development. In fact, the builder had to replace approximately 20 semi-mature trees that did not survive even though Richard had forewarned him that the root balls were planted too deeply and this would likely cause their demise. I can’t say enough about the organic approach and Richard’s team’s professional response and care.

  • Josh Herremans, Team leader

    With 20 years experience working for various landscape companies, I feel we are one of the first companies to complete the work correctly. The results of the gardens speak for themselves.

  • Barry Draycott, Pres, Tech Terra Organics

    I have known Richard McCoy for 10 years. From the start I was impressed with his work. His attention to detail and concern for the environment are exceptional.

    McCoy Horticultural Services has worked hard with Tech Terra Organics to develop individual lawn and shrub care programs for his clients. It is always a pleasure to see the properties he maintains because the plantings are beautiful and healthy. Rik always strives for perfection and it shows in his work!

  • Chris S., Princeton, NJ / Chicago, IL

    Richard McCoy transformed my garden into a shady bower. I was a veteran of two landscapers, who had promised much but over a season or two delivered little, since the majority of the plants they gave me refused to thrive. Rik has a feeling for plants like an excellent school teacher has a feeling for children. he knows what a plant needs and what a spot in the garden needs, and he always finds a match. He has a deep understanding of plants and a beautiful eye to boot. And, he is scrupulously honest. I never questioned a bill.

  • Barbara J., Wayne NJ

    The Riverview Garden Club had the pleasure of having guest speaker Richard McCoy attend a monthly meeting to share his expertise about shade gardening. His lecture and slide show addressed many of the members’ concerns for creating “a beauty bloom” area in their yards while offering numerous ideas for varying landscapes. Growing moss throughout the shaded garden areas was just one unique idea which had been introduced as a fabulous venture. Mr. McCoy provided the members with advice for their own future yard planning and gave us a wealth of information to take home and read. It was a most informative evening enjoyed by all.
