Choosing a contractor to work on your yard and in your home is a decision not to be taken lightly. You want a professional known for both quality work and also someone you can trust with the keys to your house, your family and even your pets. Howard Wallace and his team of professionals provided the peace of mind we needed. Not only were we very pleased with the workmanship, but by the end of the project we considered Howard, Anthony and Benjamin as part of our family. Howard turned our dreams on the back of napkin into a brick and mortar show place.

Sassafras Landscape has been doing landscaping projects for me for over 14 years. Howard Wallace is someone I can count on to do quality work at a fair price. He completely redesigned the landscaping of my home incorporating many native plants and features of which I continuously get complements. Howard has a talent for design and making landscaping features that are both eye appealing and easy to maintain. One of the most challenging projects he performed was to install large stone riprap around my home to provide protection from large waves. This involved over 16 trucks of large granite which was installed from the shore. He was able to do this with minimal impact to my landscaping. A couple of shrubs and some sod and no one could tell I had anything done. His crew is very courteous and strive to do excellent work. I would not hesitate to recommend Sassafras Landscape for all types of landscaping work.

Howard Wallace made the entire process - from design through completion - a fun, creative experience for us. He took the time to get to know us, so the finished landscape reflects our personality and is a lovely extension of our home. Howard's expertise in native plants was a guiding force in creating a landscape compatible with both our family and the environment.

We have worked with Howard and Sassafras Landscape several times over the past five years, and always been pleased with the results. Especially impressive is his knowledge of local/native plants.


Howard Wallace has an esthetic eye, cares about quality and is effective and efficient. He has excellent ideas for projects. Among the projects he has done for us include a concrete driveway--which was done with quality and looks that I still appreciate when I drive or walk over it--and it has been here for many years. Howard has also done work for us rehabbing a historic building. He knows the functional and esthetic requirements. Howard has also done "mundane" work such as diverting water from where it shouldn't go and again his work his excellent. In short, we receive value for our money.

The Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County is delighted to have had the opportunity to work with Howard Wallace and Wavering Place Design/Build on a garden project for a new performing arts wing. Howard’s design work is so precise and well thought out, in addition to being conscientious of certain budget constraints in the non-profit arena. The landscape work really frames the building and adds much to this area with simple elegance and style.
