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'! 😉

Reliable professionals who have helped us be more efficient with our yard care with more beauty to enjoy.

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. 🌳 -SS

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 Dew

We have used Rockaway several times and are very happy with the designs, staff and final product. Our backyard and front yard are beautiful thanks to them!! They truly stand behind their product and we will continue to use them in the future for any of our landscaping needs.
13:33 29 Apr 20
Rockaway helped us design and and install our new backyard. Would absolutely recommend their services and will definitely have them back to do additional work in the future.
14:33 28 Apr 20
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. The designers listen to your landscaping wants and needs, and create a beautiful scene. The installation team is precise, fast and clean. We have hired a lot of contractors in the past five years, and Rockaway is comprised of true professionals.

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.
01:26 17 Jan 20
We have received quality, professional work from Rockaway for several years. We recently had landscaping design and install done in our front yard. They did a terrific job! Special thanks to Rosalind and Josh for going beyond in customer service. We look forward to using them again for our next project.
07:05 11 Jan 20
I enjoy walking around and finding at least one plant, that I just have to have.
19:51 06 Dec 19
Me and my family enjoyed picking out out Christmas Tree there this year. Everyone was amazing! The Christmas tree we got was the best we have ever gotten too!
23:45 14 Nov 19
This is our "go to" place in Jacksonville for all things gardening... they have an excellent and divers selection of plants, flowers, potted baskets and planters that are beautiful, colorful and every size from small to very large... In my opinion it's this place is delightful to spend your time and money to "step up" your gardening, whether you are novice or Master Gardener!!They also have all kinds of events and benifits for families as we as for adults... Music and "adult beverages"... AND SO MUCH MORE!!It's as beautiful as any park around town for sure....🌴🌴

I love this nursery...everyone is so helpful! From Bernd, with ALL his horticulture knowledge, to the cashiers, and emails, they all want to make us better subtropical gardeners 🌺
22:35 21 Jul 19
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!

Staff extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Is now my "go to" place for plants.
19:49 25 May 19
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!
14:51 23 May 19
Stopped by here for the first time to get a house plant for a friend. Not only did they have an amazing variety, but helpful staff and great prices. It was also one of the most beautiful nurseries I'd ever been to!
20:26 14 May 19
The staff was pleasant and helped me get the best deal for my purchase
18:02 28 Apr 19
Love this place!! My patio, back porch & bathroom looks great with my new flowers today!! They were so helpful too!!
11:21 21 Apr 19
We shopped 4/20 - Earth day with Rockaway and had so much fun! Plenty of staff on hand to help with questions, hunting for Easter eggs and drinking sangria while shopping made buying plants so enjoyable! Thank you for the great service!
23:49 18 Apr 19
I love this place. The plants they have are always well cared for, and the staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. They have the best selection for herbs and vegetables, I find this nursery a very reliable place to go for my plant shopping. They have firewood and straw mulch, too (:
19:09 27 Mar 19
Love the veggie planting guide PDF you emailed me!
15:58 24 Feb 19

Love the plant selection here. I was searching every nursery in Jax for a Peace Lilly for my apartment. They had a beautiful one right in the entrance green room. My front patio is the best on the street now with my bright annuals. Thank you!
18:45 22 Dec 18
The staff is so friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The customer service is fantastic. They even sent me information on how to care for my specific plant.
20:43 14 Dec 18

Beautiful pots....potting...fertilizers soils...annuals..perennials...shurbs...trees. My Favorite Place for flowers. Always go there when in Jacksonville area!#!!!!
02:10 02 Dec 18
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.
16:13 12 Nov 18
Great plant shop!
14:34 08 Nov 18
Zack was so helpful. He even shined up my new orchid’s leaves for me since I was taking the plant directly as a gift. 😃
15:06 25 Aug 18
I LOVE Rockaway Garden Center. I’m totally addicted to their beautiful plants. My yard is the prettiest one on the street!
20:39 27 Jul 18
Always so helpful in making sound decisions for indoor and outdoor plants and their care. Very appreciative of their customers' business and have great customer appreciation events!

02:14 27 Jan 18
With the cold weather I needed cheerful flowers to brighten my day and Rockaway had the perfect selection.

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.
17:49 26 Sep 17
This is my go to place for everything gardening..staff extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you guys 😊
11:57 09 Aug 17
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!
20:32 10 Jul 17
We get all of our plants at Rockaway. Staff are extremely knowledgeable and are happy to help with selection advice and planting and care instructions.
00:13 25 Jun 17
Rock away folk are Always helpful and nice. I really enjoy my shopping experience and the quality of the merchandise. I can't say enough about how helpful the staff is!
20:16 05 Jun 17
They are the best for customer service! They will answer questions ..even stupid non gardening ones like mine. They will special order items for you as well. This place is great.
20:00 21 Apr 17
Rockaway has maintained our entire your and landscaping for several years and we are delighted! It's nice to have your neighbors and even HOA compliment you on your home. I can recommend Rockaway without reservation.
17:53 17 Dec 16
Great plant selection, convenient location and awesome customer service. I appreciate the way they make sure I feel like a valued client.
13:53 26 Jun 16
What a great place to shop. Everyone is very knowledgeable and helpful. My experience couldn't have been better. Not really knowing what I want an employee named Trisha came over to help me. There wasn't anything that this woman didn't know and she had a true desire to make the shopping experience one of the best.
15:59 31 May 12
Great place to shop. I have taken my mother and brother hear as well. The people are super friendly and the quality is outstanding. They have a very nice assortment of vases and pots also.
00:36 16 Sep 11
A hidden gem of Jacksonville Beach. We had Melissa- one of the designers do a layout for us for our front yard and she was invaluable with suggestions and hands on experience with the plants that she suggested. Initially planned on planting everything myself but they offer installation services at a very fair price and even include fertilizer and soil amendments. Always getting compliments on our new yard... Thanks!

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.

- Bob and Merrilea Bilik

We have used Rockaway several times and are very happy with the designs, staff and final product. Our backyard and front yard are beautiful thanks to them!! They truly stand behind their product and we will continue to use them in the future for any of our landscaping needs

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,

- Dennis and Kathy Lang

Hi Greg,

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.

Sincerely,

- Gayle and Steve Banks

I love my new yard. I highly recommend. Kudos to Rosalinde and Josh. They kept me informed throughout the process and completed the job on the scheduled date!

- Jill Martin

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!

- Jodie Nutter

I love Rockaway. It’s super cute, affordable, and has a huge variety of plants to chose from. All of the staff is warm, welcoming, and super helpful. I came here one afternoon looking to find some good indoor plants and had at least three employees give me good suggestions. Every time I need some plant inspiration I come to Rockaway. Every plant I have purchased has lasted, and all of their plants are in perfect or almost perfect condition. If you are looking to add to your garden, upgrade your yard, or simply just want a cute succulent – go to Rockaway!

We were so happy with the first visit, our yard needed some serious help and they worked really hard, wanted to let you know how impressed we were already with your company, Thank you!! Can’t wait until Emmanuelle starts the design installation in a few weeks 🙂

- Margaret Page

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. The designers listen to your landscaping wants and needs, and create a beautiful scene. The installation team is precise, fast and clean. We have hired a lot of contractors in the past five years, and Rockaway is comprised of true professionals

We just wanted to thank Tom & Emmanuelle for coming out to our house to purpose these jobs for us. We look very forward to the work you all are doing for us.
Both Tom and Emmanuelle were very professional and answered all our questions, no matter how silly they might have been. Thank You both again and we look forward to doing business with Rockaway Inc.

- Mr. & Mrs. Trexel

Rockaway is truly what living at the beach is all about! Out helping the community when we all need to pull together the most! They also have done the most awesome fall displays at The Beaches Art Festival for the last 3 years! Check out their amazing pumpkin and gourd selection, you won’t go home empty handed.

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!
