    Steve and his crew did a fabulous job. I needed the wood and stone border around my house replaced, and it came out exactly as I had envisioned or even better. I am totally happy, thank you!

    Strongly recommend!! We wanted a few things changed out front & wanted to create more privacy in the back. Steve & Ron did a fantastic job! They understand the design process, the HOA approval process as well as installation & upkeep. So happy with the final product!

    After reading the reviews already posted here on Yelp, we decided to schedule a meeting with Steve. We moved from New England a year and a half ago and have had hit and eventually, miss experiences in the landscaping department. Steve brought our ideas to fruition and we are very pleased with the transformation of our yard over the past five months. Steve designed a paver stone pathway that winds along the side of our home and expands to a perfect size patio that is adjacent to our swimming pool. Both pathway and patio are complete with a soldier course design and it is exquisite. He was also able to find the pavers that match the existing ones surrounding our pool. With Steve's unique experience, suggestions and ingenuity, we planted all new bushes, trees, many grasses and added beautiful stone to the front of the house and eucalyptus mulch everywhere else. Steve and his entire team at Collier Cutters of SWFL are the entire package. They are project pros, professional and sincere and also maintain our property for grass cutting, etc. We endorse all of the reviews below and are happy to add to the list!

    They did an incredible job adding pavers to my pool area. They also replanted the trees surrounding the pool and moved plants as well as leveled out some of the areas that had shifted over time. Great job. They all worked so hard to get it done. I would highly recommend this company.

  • Steve H.
    I feel fortunate to have discovered Collier Cutters. After years of putting up with less than stellar lawn service, I discovered this company coincidentally up in a tree at my neighbors house. (She must have read the same yelp review I did.) In the 6 months or so that they've been caring for my property one can immediately see the difference. The lawn and shrubs are healthy, the shrubs flowering, and the crew and Supervisor are self starters.

  • Armen K.
    This team did a good job of trimming our trees and hedges but they let the lawn deteriorate materially in the 3-4 months they did work for us. Additionally I discovered some broken sprinkler heads that were wasting water and allowing the lawn to dry out in certain spots. The company seemed to genuinely care and wanted to improve the situation once I notified them, but I had already decided to move on unfortunately. For the amount we were paying, I felt they should have held themselves to a higher standard without us having to complain about our lawn.

    The improvement in our lawn and bushes is amazing! Collier Cutters knew what was needed to get our yard in shape. Bushes are HAND TRIMMED! Steve came to the house and turned over leaves to check for disease. He pointed out lawn deficiencies and problems. He explained in layman's terms what the problem was and showed us examples. He then told us how he would remedy the situation. If he doesn't know the answer he researches it and gets back to you in a timely fashion. Within 3 months the yard looks so much better. I can't recommend Collier Cutters highly enough...

    We bought our house in the spring of 2018 and planned to do a complete renovation. We were very unlucky with our general contractor. We had all kinds problems, wasted a lot money and time and were very tired and disappointed in the whole process. Finally, the renovation came to an end in January 2019. However, we still needed to have the landscaping done. We got really lucky when we met a great landscaper, Steve Hoguet with Collier Cutters. He answered our phone call right away and met us the same day! He really listened to what we wanted and tried to accommodate every request. Also, we learned that we share the same passion for bonsais which made us very happy. We knew that we were in good hands and Steve understood our vision. At the end, we got beautiful landscaping around our home and new pool. Exotic trees and plants surrounded with river stones look perfect with our silver travertine patio! Also, all this Beauty is low maintenance, which was one of our requirements. At the front of the house we got a gorgeous Canary Date palm and an old Bougainvillea tree with a twisted trunk. Steve found and trimmed it turning it into one of a kind bonsai tree. His business partner extended our existing irrigation even under the driveway to two new bougainvilleas at the house entrance. Everything was done in a short period of time at a very reasonable price despite our choosing the most expensive, exotic trees and plants. We couldn't be happier with our experience with Collier Cutters! We would highly recommend Steve Hoguet and his partner Ron Jefferson at Collier cutters!!

    Its approximating two and a half years since we started with Collier Cutters. When we first hired them we were impressed by their Yelp reviews, by Steve Hoguet, who drives the company, and the fact that coincidentally their crew was up in our neighbors trees. While initially we were impressed by the positive change in our landscape, as time went on we started to find that problems on the garden side of the business weren't being address. Once an area of plumbagos started to decline, the situation was called to Collier Cutter's attention and I then watched over 3-4 weeks as the plants declined, while their horticultural head contemplated how to reverse the situation. On another occasion our lawn declined as no one bothered to conduct a ph test or apply lime to deal with the acidity issues. So now I'm moving on as Steve is redirecting his operations to other areas where Collier Cutters is experiencing growth. I'm happy for Steve. He's a good guy, responds to problems, and has talented dedicated help. I wish him well. And as for me, I was told years ago that there are some 2,500 landscapers in Collier County most of whom are always looking for business. So it only took a few days to line up a new, enthusiastic, landscape company to replace Collier Cutters.

    My husband and I are extremely pleased with the fantastic job that Steve, Ron and crew did for us. They transformed our outside land into a beautifully landscaped area complete with a brick patio, fencing and custom wood gate. They worked in a timely and very professional manner. Steve always took time to listen to our concerns and offer expert advice. We would highly recommend Collier Cutters of SWFL.

    We have a property in Naples but live in New York and for the past several years have not spent any time in Naples. The house stood unoccupied and arriving there we found the relatively large land completely neglected by the man who was supposed to cut the lawn and take care of the trees and plants. The result was a total loss of all plants, burned out grass and an eyesore to the neighborhood. We needed a complete landscaping and were fortunate enough to find Collier Cutters. Steve and his crew did a very nice job by changing a devastated land to a pleasing landscape that brought the praise from our neighbors. It was a pleasure to work with Steve who is not only very knowledgeable but mild tempered, helpful and reasonable. Both he and Brian demonstrated that pride in their work was more important than just doing a job for money. We decided that we will spend the winters in Naples from now on, and Steve definitely made a contribution to this decision.

    Being new a couple of years ago to Naples, I was given a huge list of landscapers that others in my neighborhood recommended... well, that didn't help me much. So.... I looked on Yelp of course! I saw this landscaper existed and didn't have any negative reviews, so I decided to take a chance. I called Steve and he was quick to get me in on his appointment book and came out to evaluate my yard and give an estimate. My neighborhood association hires landscapers to take care of our yard- but it's bare minimum work, and they wouldn't touch our palms because they are over 15 feet high. When Steve came out to look over the yard, he offered to clean up the palms, clean up the oak trees and some other little trees that the other landscaper neglected. He was very knowledgable and friendly. He told me the names of the plants and showed me where there was disease that should be taken care of and which plants and trees needed trimming. The price he gave me was very fair, and I didn't feel like he overcharged me at all. That's a problem here in Naples, everyone tries to overcharge. He came out with his crew the next week and my yard looked beautiful! Even though we pay for the neighborhood landscape crew, I still have called on Collier Cutters to "fix" things that were neglected and make things right in the plant world. My palms are beautiful, my trees and plants are disease free, and there are no invasive plants taking over anymore. They have also planted some plants I purchased on my own and took out an old cement grotto type behemoth the previous home owners built near the pool. If you are looking for a professional, knowledgable, hard working and fair landscaper, look no more. Collier Cutters is the real deal. P.S. My neighbor was so impressed by their work, she fired her landscaper and hired Collier Cutters as well!

    I hired Collier Cutters to do the entire landscape of my backyard after having a pool installed. From the very beginning Steve was responsive and quickly created a design, provided a quote and completed all the work in a short time frame. The job looks amazing and I had him come back and install a few more shrubs afterward. He came to review the job with me in person after I was back in town and made sure I was happy with everything. I highly recommend Collier Cutters.

    We purchased an older home that required a rework of the overgrown landscaping and heaving cement driveway. Collier Cutters was the first company we contacted for a quote on our project and from the moment we met Steve we knew we need look no further. Steve impressed us with his professionalism and expansive knowledge of plants and hardscape design. As we worked through our plans which included new landscaping, irrigation, accent lighting, and a paver driveway, we had the opportunity to meet Steve's partner, Ron. Ron is equally amazing in his commitment to quality and customer service. As I write this I am enjoying my beautiful new landscape...thanks Steve and Ron and all the Collier Cutters team...we are so glad we found you!

    I searched for quite a while to find a quality landscape company to take on the project of re-doing the landscaping in the front of my home. My patience paid huge dividends upon finding Steve Hoguet and his company, Collier Cutters. Steve was a pleasure with whom to work; a true professional. His help with design; his full knowledge of horticulture, especially in SW Florida; conceptual drawings; pricing, etc. was exactly what I was looking for. He and his hard working crew are 'first rate'. Collier Cutters are now my 'go-to' company for all things landscaping. They should be anyone's first and only call when in need of professional and prompt landscape design.

    We hired Collier Cutters to do a redesign of our newly installed “builder’s basic” landscaping. We are very pleased with both the results and well as with the very hardworking, trustworthy and honest team. Steve was very attentive to the ideas we had and to every detail of the new landscape. He saved and relocated almost every plant that was originally planted and added new ones that really enhanced the beauty of our home. They also installed a paver pathway that is very well done. We couldn’t be happier.
