My husband and I have used Rockaway for several years. When we moved to our new home, we kept Rockaway for our lawn service. I cannot imagine using... anyone else. Brian and Greg, owners, are available and hands on.We had recently undergone an extensive project to address our irrigation. Rockaway’s irrigation guru Dar spent 2 days at our home fixing broken heads, correcting heads, adding new heads.Dar arrived on time and was very professional. He took time to give me an overview of his approach then got straight to work. With each zone, he demonstrated the changes.Not only did Dar give us much better irrigation for our lawn and new landscaping but he also took time to sweep up yard debris that had been left in front of our home by the waste pickup company used by our county. This, folks, is going above and beyond!If your wanting a beautiful lawn, Rockaway is the partner you need! Happy customer!!read more

We are absolutely THRILLED with Rockaway Landscaping! So much so that we keep adding new projects to their list to continue our property... improvements. Every employee has been kind, professional, prompt and knowledgeable! We hired this awesome company to re-landscape our entire yard....then we added lighting to the job (SO happy we did)...then we decided it was time for a new pavered patio! Rockaway exceeded ALL expectations with every project! Next, they will create a beautiful walkway on the side of our home...something we have wanted for 15 years! THANK YOU, Rockaway!!!!! You 'rock'! 😉read more

These guys are great. I’m on our community HOA board and my wife heads up our Beautification Committee so we interact with Rockaway in a few... different ways. We agree they’re reliable, know plants, do great work with attention to detail and are easy to work with. From flowers to trees Greg has a good eye for what would look good where too, “right plant right place”. They charge us a fair price, in line with other options. No more complaints from residents. We changed vendors every 2 or so years before we found these guys. I grew up around the landscaping business and don’t impress easily. They’re as good as you’ll find. 🌳 -SSread more

We could not be more pleased about the landscape job Rockaway’s team just completed for us! We had two big beds in front of our condo completely... refreshed and they look beautiful! Their team did a wonderful job consulting with us on the design and coordinating the plants and installation. And their crew was so friendly and professional and even worked through the pouring rain to help get the job completed for us. And their follow up the next day to ensure all the irrigation checked out and was set properly gave me such peace of mind that our new plants would be covered rain or shine. We can’t wait to watch it all grow up this summer! Thank you team Rockaway for bringing beauty back to our home and a smile to our face each day we come home! Gratefully, Jennifer & Mark Dewread more

We’ve used Rockaway three or four times now, and I can’t say enough great things. Our jobs have ranged from small to big.

Rockaway did an excellent job landscaping our property in Jacksonville Beach. We had some plants that they were able to work into their design to... make our property feel like a true resort property. The lighting is amazing. The design work with Rosalinde was very professional. She arrived with real photos to give us an idea of what to expect when the project was complete. Dan the project manager kept us informed during the project to let us know what to expect while things were happening and what to expect over the next several weeks with watering the new sod, trees and plants. Everyone was, so nice, very helpful and informative. They showed us how to work the lights and irrigation systems. My husband and I couldn’t be happier with the way everything turned out.read more

Went in today needing a LOT of help and was greeted by the most helpful and cheerful young lady. I did not get her name! 😫 But I left with... the most glorious large blue and white ceramic pot and lots of pretty blooms. These florals make such a big difference to the beauty and vibe of our outdoor space. I will definitely be back very soon to scoop up a few more of the gorgeous colorful pots and those lovely planters that have already been created with a perfect combination of plants and flowers. Love Rockaway. ♥️ Thank you!read more

I love shopping at Rockaway because of the expertise they provide. We've saved so much frustration, money, time and get beautiful results by coming... in and speaking with one of their experts who take the time to listen to what we are trying to do, what we like and make recommendations. Today we were ready to buy a bunch of plants --when Jodi gave us the advice to ammend our soil first so our plants would grow. She told us what we needed and how to do it. In all the years we've been buying plants for this particular garden, not one plant shop has ever recommended we do that first. I know this will save us hundreds of dollars (if not more) because our plants will do better and we won't have to keep replacing them as in the past. She also gave us recommendations so we won't end up with a look-a-like garden which I also love (and Rockaway has the plants to support that too). This is especially important to me as despite my telling other plant shops around town this when looking for plants, I usually get the same old recommendations I see all over town. We had similar GREAT advice by another employee at Rockaway in the fall for a container garden we were planting. She totally nailed it too. We'll be back to buy the plants after ammending our soil. Thank you!read more

We love Rockaway. We've been generally happy with our purchases. Last Christmas Season we bought a Concolor Christmas tree. We were verysatisfied... with it and received my a y compliments on it's fullness and shape. So this year we bought another but this time we're not nearly as pleased with it. From the time we purchased it until we got it placed in our home the tree kept dropping needles. We think this was owed in great part to the young man who sold us the tree wrapping it in some kind of net material that was hard on the tree's needles causing a great amount of them to fall off when we cut off the net material. Now we have to sweep and vacuum daily because the tree sheds continuously.We're now considering the purchase of an artificial tree next year.Jerry Flakusread more

We make the hike out from the Westside of Jacksonville to shop at Rockaway, especially at Christmas time. Even though the Christmas season is... probably when they are working the longest days, the employees are kind and helpful. An example: my toddler lost his shoe and all of the associates went out of their way to scour the garden center to help us find it! We almost always attend the tree lighting ceremony the Friday after Thanksgiving. That’s the night you can most tell what a family tradition Rockaway is.read more

Great place to do business. Whether you are shopping their retail space at 510 Shetter Avenue or they are revamping your yard. Have you noticed the... public spaces they maintain like the Beaches Library and the Beaches Museum and History Park? I like that in some instances, you can have a beer or a drink, check out their place and get to know people at the beach.read more

I was extremely happy with Rockaway. We were selling our home and wanted to see about getting some landscaping to create more privacy and make our... house more appealing. I called them for an estimate and David Holloway came right out and provided a full, professional landscaping plan and estimate for a very reasonable rate that could not possibly have covered his time. As we were intent on moving, we only wanted to address one portion of our yard, so asked David if we could just implement part of the plan. He said, "Of course!" and requited us for just the part we wanted, again at a terrific price. He then scheduled and installed it quickly, with no issues. To top it off, he sent out an irrigation specialist to help with the install. While doing his work, the specialist pointed out several issues with the system (that I knew existed and wanted to take care of). He gave me a great price on the spot to repair everything and fixed it all. I'd recommend Rockaway to anyone. Great service, for prices and a company you can trust.read more

Rockaway is great and we've loved the new yard and irrigation system. BUT, Rockaway wouldn't be nearly as good without DAVID HOLLOWAY. David was... the point person for us and went WAY above and beyond. From designing, advising, and actually stopping back by later to make sure everything was ok. He even took money out of his pocket to get my wife an extra couple of flowering plants that he thought she might like, and sprayed for weeds because he was tired of seeing me not do it! I can't say enough about David, and his kindness and professionalism. Again, Rockaway is great...but if DAVID HOLLOWAY ever leaves...make sure you follow him wherever he goes!read more

A hidden gem of Jacksonville Beach.

Always getting compliments on our new yard... Thanks!read more

Will and Tom and all your staff provide extraordinary service. Bob and I are both retired. We live in a modest frame home I had built here at Jacksonville Beach 35 years ago. I had hope for a real first class lawn but the price is more than we expected. We realize that everything is very expensive. We paid $10,000.00 for the lot back in 1983. Thank you for providing extraordinary service.

David,

We can’t thank you enough for all you did to transform our yard. From the first design meeting to the end of the project, you were there for us and your insight and design ideas were right on target. Thank you so much for all your patience and expert advice. We truly enjoyed working with you!

Gratefully,

We are very satisfied with the work done by your team especially David Holloway. He supervised and returned after the work was done. It was his attention that noticed the irrigation leak.
Rockaway is a very professional and well organized Landscaping Service. We are very glad we chose your company to do our landscaping.

We are so pleased with the service we received from Rockaway! The entire process from design, budgeting, material selection through construction went smoothly. David Holloway completed the design of the cabana, paver patio and landscape renovation by incorporating both practical and creative elements which solved our site issues and added beauty and function. The job was completed on time and on budget, but what impressed us the most was that every person who worked on the job really seemed to care about the quality of work and our happiness with the project. Thank you Rockaway!

From consultation and design through installation, David Holloway did an outstanding job in executing our vision. He is a great asset, and we appreciated his creativity and high level of communication throughout the process. Additionally, Dan Messer did a masterful job in coordinating and directing his staff with the actual install. He, too, is a wonderful resource as he provided us valuable suggestions the day of the planting.

Everyone else we dealt with on Rockaway team such as Lisa, Will and Rusty were all most responsive and helpful. Their efforts are to be commended.

This is the third landscaping project we’ve entrusted to Rockaway during the past several years. We fully expect to continue using your services as we know the results will enhance our home.
Again, many thanks for a great job!
