Accent on Landscape reconstructed a poorly built stone retaining wall that had fallen down three times in the last 10 years. The company was completely professional and knowledgeable. It was a relief to find a company who understood what was needed to fix the wall so that it would last. We were worried about the cost of repairing the wall and were very pleased at how reasonable it was, considering the project. They were very prompt, worked hard and left no mess behind. We are very pleased!

Accent on Landscape were efficient and completed the task as promised even while we were away on vacation. What a surprise to come home and have the job completed and done perfectly. They incorporated our old patio in with the new like they were both installed at the same time. Well done and we are so happy to have our new patio and the fire pit during these chilly Fall nights!

Accent on Landscape were hired to remove our old patio and replace it with one that was double its size plus install an outdoor grill area. Rob and his team were great! Rob is organized, keen to work with us, he met us at a local garden center to help us choose pavers and was able to clear talk through the design and help us finalize everything. Once his team started the work they completed it within a reasonable time and were quite happy for me to ask any questions and change minor aspects of the design without issues. He has a great crew, very hard working and very good at spotting potential issues and making recommendations on how we get past them. I'd definitely hire Rob and his team again.

AOL graded backyard for patio; put in 19 ft. x 21 ft. paving stone patio with seating walls and fire pit; also put in 7 ft. x 4 ft. walkway from back steps of house to patio. Seeded back yard. Also put in some juniper bushes (4). We felt it went quite well. Rob helped us in designing the patio to fit our back yard. He took us to the stone supplier to pick out the color and texture of the paving stones as well as the wall stones & seating stone. Did an excellent job with the fire-pit. Answered any questions we had about the prices & progress of work. Was very personable and professional. Had a very knowledgeable and well-qualified foreman (Pablo) and crew. We're very satisfied & happy with the way the project turned out. It has made a tremendous improvement in our back yard; something we have been wanting to get done for several years and would certainly recommend Rob to any of our neighbors or friends.

Rob Grubb and his crew, including Pablo, did a magnificent job transforming our harsh nonexistent landscape into a beautiful green oasis. We had only rudimentary ideas of what we wanted to accomplish and Rob took our simple ideas and turned them into more than we could have dreamed of. From the laying of the sod to the cultivating and mulching of planting beds, all tasks were completed with professionalism, an eye to design and on time. Our lawn is now the talk of the neighborhood. We would gladly recommend Robb to anyone looking for a qualified, professional landscaper. He is courteous, professional and competitively priced. We definitely got more bang for our buck than we anticipated. Thanks Rob, Pablo and crew for a job VERY well done!

I had been planning this project for more than a year, and had trouble finding someone who would do the work to my specifications at a reasonable price. I finally chose Rob because he seemed knowledgeable, gave me a reasonable estimate, and was willing to work with what had become a tight schedule. The work provided by him and his crew was top-notch, and I can't say enough about how easy they were to work with. They were very flexible, and were willing to do the work the way I wanted it done, even though that meant reworking some aspects, changing things, and adding to the scope. The work was completed in a reasonable time frame even with the severely challenging weather we've had this spring. Rob is fantastic to work with, and does excellent work. I highly recommend him for your next landscaping project.

I wish I could show you pictures - my backyard is an oasis now!

I met Rob with Accent On Landscape at the Raleigh Home Show in October. I was immediately impressed with the consultation. He was professional, asked a lot of questions, and provided guidance/ideas for a homeowner who knew what he wanted but not all the details. At this point, I had several estimates from other companies in the area - Rob was by far the most professional one. I was surprised by number of companies that did not return my multiple calls and/or emails. Accent On Landscape wasn't the cheapest but that's not what I was going for. Rob was flexible with my crazy work schedule and always returned my call/email within few hours - this was very important to me with my schedule. Accent On Landscape's crew worked efficiently through the cold weather and finished the job in reasonable amount of time.

Dear Rob,

First of all, I need to sincerely thank you for taking the time to meet with Trina and I, and review our vision for Landscape Design in our new home. When we met at the Trade Show in Raleigh, we instantly were drawn to your sincerity, and genuine passion for Landscaping. We had a strong feeling you understood what we wanted, and could make it happen.

As you and I started to discuss what Trina and I were looking for, there was some trepidation in your look. But, instead of telling me I was nuts, you kindly made some suggestions you felt would work better. From wanting a peanut shaped patio, you convinced me a rectangular design would take up less room and look cleaner. I was adamant about a round fire pit, you steered me into a square, gas-fired look. Those two simple suggestions were the cornerstones of the final design, which turned out gorgeous.

After all this was done, I had said I would finish off the soft-scaping this spring. But, as my work schedule began to fill, I knew I had no time to get this done. After calling you, we had a proposal in place inside of a week, and the project finished inside of two. To see the completed project, plants and all, blew me away. I had big expectations, and they were definitely exceeded.

Trina and I would like to thank you for making our house a home. We've already enjoyed many nights by the fire, over a glass of wine, looking at the stars in the Carolina sky. We look forward to many more, and doing more work with you in the future. If you ever need a reference for any reason, we would be happy to provide one. The work, service and final results you provide are second to none!

It has been to my benefit to have used Rob Grubb and his many services for the last 20 plus years. During that time he has, constructed, repaired, maintained, assisted, designed and performed every imaginable landscape service including, but not limited to: indirect outside accent lighting for the house and yard, a full yard irrigation system, a 15 foot artificial river with 3 waterfalls, an incredible number of plantings ranging from ground cover to mature trees, a rock garden with boulders half the size of my car and much more. Every time I decided on a project I would bid it out and Rob always came in at or near the best price. His work has always been professional, meeting or exceeding my expectations. Jobs were always finished on time or ahead of schedule. His workers are courteous and respectful and the few times there were problems with either the labor or product Rob would make it right to my satisfaction. It is with pleasure I offer my highest recommendation for Rob. He is the kind of guy you wish you had known about sooner and why he is the only one I've used in the last 2 decades and 3 houses. If I can be of any further assistance in helping you choose the right man for the job (that would be Rob, if I hadn't already made it clear), please feel free to contact me at

My wife and I hired Accent on Landscape to construct a walkway and patio from the street on the side of our house to our backyard. The elevation changes presented some challenges for Rob Grubb and his crew; however, they did an outstanding job which involved building a small step from the walkway down to the patio. Rob made multiple trips to our home due to our indecisiveness until we were able to finally make a decision on what we wanted to do. Accent on Landscape did a wonderful job and we are thoroughly enjoying our patio and sidewalk - and our neighbors too. We have received many nice compliments from others in the Arbor Creek subdivision of Holly Springs. The work was done in a timely manner and was very competitive on pricing. I whole heartedly recommend Rob Grubb of Accent on Landscaping for all your landscaping projects.

Rob Grubb and Accent on Landscape designed and constructed a pond with waterfalls, landscaping around it, and lighting for our home and yard. All projects were professionally handled from start to finish and continue to be serviced to this day. They took an asphalt parking pad and turned it into a beautiful water garden that everyone thinks has always been there. I highly recommend Accent on Landscape and invite anyone who wishes to come see for themselves.

Rob Grubb and Accent on Landscape have been a part of the pleasure of our home for over thirteen years now. When we moved in, our yard was barren and the grass was sparse. Rob and his team began the process of listening to our perceived needs and then advising us on a long term plan to beautify the outside of our home and to have it compliment the inside. Rob was creative, practical, cost conscious, timely and reliable. He has attended to our landscape needs with promptness and professionalism. His work speaks for itself and I have recommended his services with great pride to family and friends, both corporate and residential, throughout the triangle. Rob Grubb is a true professional and devoted to customer service. We are so grateful that we began working with him at the beginning of the process to develop our home landscape.

We have used Accent on Landscape for several of their services – installation of a sprinkler system, new landscaping, landscape lighting, weekly lawn maintenance (along with seeding, fertilizing, and trimming). In each of these services we have been more than pleased with the cost, quality, reliability and professionalism. We give Rob and his crew the highest recommendation!

Rob Grubb is a true professional and a gentleman. It's a complete delight working with him. He has good ideas of his own but also is a good listener to your ideas and will incorporate them into the design or gently explain to you why they won't work. Our yard was a complete mess before they started working. They connected the downspouts to rigid PVC drain tile that they ran to the far edge of our property to move water away from the foundation. Then they graded the lot, also to move water away. Rob designed 2 retaining walls and a paver walkway and patio to complement our sloped lot, and his employee Pablo did a beautiful job of building it all; we've received many compliments on how nice it looks. We also had them build a parking area for us and a concrete pad extending the driveway. We ran out of budget and never did get to the landscaping Rob designed for us, but we intend to call him back when we're ready for that part of it. Great people, honest, responsive, and do a fantastic job. Highly recommend. Call him; you won't regret it.

Chris Elam
Thanks for doing such a good job on our landscaping. It was a pleasure working with you and the yard looks great. I'd love to do business with you again and may be calling for your help again this spring.

Chris & Suzanne Baker
We chose Rob over 3 or 4 other landscapers to re-shape our garden and install an irrigation system. This decision was based on his clear knowledge of the business and his friendly and non-sales-oriented manner. We have been very pleased with the results. The plants and design he chose have worked out well, and we have had no problems with the irrigation system besides one component failure which was replaced promptly under warranty. We did not hesitate to use his services again in 2011 to install a patio at the base of our deck stairs, which we are extremely pleased with. They are a highly recommended service.

Norm Carew
Dear Accent on Landscapes, I have now been your customer for over five years and each year I have you install another section of sprinkler system for my gardens. Each time the service has been superior and excellent and very thoughtfully designed. I always appreciate your very prompt response when I phone you and I truly appreciate the superior follow-up service. I shall be calling you again in a few weeks to do the very last section of the gardens. Thank you for helping my property to thrive and for your fine quality products and service.

Sincerely yours,
Penny Rand

When my wife and I decided that our backyard had seen better days and needed a serious home makeover, I dreaded the fact that this was going to be a painful and expensive project. My wife and I began the project by going to home shows, researching online and interviewing landscapers. Luckily we found Accent on Landscaping and Rob Grubb. Rob is a true gentleman and a pleasure to work with. His recommendations and ability to work within our budget made the project painless. The end result exceeded all our possible expectations. I would definitely recommend Accent on Landscaping to anyone who appreciates quality work and is looking for a company to stand by their work and take pride in their work. Rob and his Company are First Class.

Andy Klein
We have been using the services of Rob Grubb and Accent on Landscape for nearly ten years. Rob and his crew have worked on various projects at our home including the installation of a French drainage system and a river rock dry bed to correct poor drainage at the back and side of our house; the design and conversion of our back yard to a natural area, which included the removal of the existing lawn, adding new plantings as well as installation of steps to access the area. He has also worked on our irrigation system.

Rob's work is exemplary. His attention to detail and commitment to quality is unsurpassed. Most importantly, Rob is dependable, reliable and takes great pride in his work, which is clearly evident by the results. We will continue to use Rob Grubb and Accent on Landscape for any future projects and highly recommend his services for all your landscape needs.

Jerry and Linda Cohen
We have had a very positive experience with Rob Grubb and Accent on Landscaping. Rob has been patient, knowledgeable and very professional. He listened to what we wanted, made recommendations and implemented the plan efficiently with no problems. He communicated with us throughout the process, and we are very pleased with the end result. Pricing was appropriate for the job. We had a budget of $5000 and Rob worked within that. He and his crew showed up as scheduled. Communication was very good. We would recommend referring him.

Matt Evans
Rob Grubb and Accent on Landscape helped us to make our home complete. When we first met Rob we were newcomers to North Carolina and a bit overwhlemed by what needed to be done for our yard. Rob walked through the property with us and listened to our plans and questions and came back with solutions to all of our problems! From drainage and irrigations solutions, outdoor lighting, and filling is some barren areas with the perfect plantings, Rob has helped us to completely transform our landscaping into something we are truly proud of. And when we realized the initial dry creek bed needed to be extended a tad to deal with the heavy spring rain, Rob was there to make things work. It has been a true pleasure working with Rob and his crew and we look forward to the next project!"
