Matt's Story:

Matt has over 20 years of hands on experience in the landscape industry. Working for a major landscape company for 8 years Matt learned a vast knowledge in all aspects of the landscape industry: landscape design, hardscape design, plant care, soil preparation, drainage management, natural stonework, paver installation and most importantly customer service. Spending another 3 years directly in the construction field, Matt worked as an installation foreman on everything from pool decks, ponds, gardens and patios of all sizes.

With a goal bringing a higher level of customer service to the contractor industry Matt started Gately Scapes, Inc. in 2005. His vision was to eliminate the struggles many homeowners face when working with a general contractor and simplify the overall practice of major home improvement. By designing, selling & directing each install as a working foreman, Matt has created a new experience, one that gives the homeowner a new feeling of control and comfort knowing that their project is being handled directly by the owner from start to finish. 

Working with Matt is an easy and enjoyable experience that is fitting for the client who wants to maintain communication not only throughout the project but long after. We pride ourselves on maintaining relationships with everyone we've worked with and providing fast and responsive customer support.

Fantastic Job!! Matt and his crew were great to work with from start to finish. He explained every aspect of the job, and answered all questions we had. His 3D site plan for the job was extremely well done, and the entire job turned out better than we even expected. Thanks!
Wow, am I glad I found Matt and Gately Scapes, Inc. !!! We needed to replace outside steps that had deteriorated with time and weather. Matt was one of three contractors we contacted from the Better Business Bureau listing. Matt's prices were the fairest, and his ideas were brilliant !!!! Matt kept us informed about scheduling and planning (you remember the unceasing rains this spring). Matt and his crew showed up on time, worked diligently, and patiently answered my endless questions. I now have 13 beautiful steps, a new hand-railing, redesigned drainage from my existing flower beds and some additional landscaping!!! The job was completed on time and looks fabulous. I look forward to working with Matt and his crews in the future.
Matt and his team did an incredible job at totally transforming my backyard. I had an old deck with lots of shade, so grass didn't grow well. I gave Matt high level ideas and he was able to design a beautiful paver patio with landscaping. It looks like a totally different house. Quality work, timely, with the upmost professionalism. One of my friends recommended Gately Scapes to me and I also highly recommend them.

The Sadowski's   Crownsville, Md

When we bought our home, it came with a weird deck in the back that was not practical. The deck was built around a hot tub (that did not work), on top of the septic (which ended up busting-leading us to rip up part of the deck to get to it), and the grading underneath the deck was pulling water toward our home ( that caused flooding into our kitchen every time we had a heavy rain), and it was a breeding ground for mosquitos and spiders. It was a mess. 

We contacted Gately Scapes and a few other companies. Matt was so professional and prompt with his estimate and exceeded our expectations of what our yard could be- so he won the job hands down. We added a fairly large patio in the back with pavers and a retaining wall all the way around and stairs up to the yard. Him and his crew did the job in 4 days start to finish! 

This has been the best investment we've made in our home to date. No more spiders, no more flooding kitchen, and we have a safe place for our children to play. We are looking forward to using Gately Scapes in the near future to hardscape and landscape our front yard also.

Mark G.      Pasadena, Md

Matt is the greatest to work with on landscaping. He is very patient during the quote process and spends the time needed to investigate and answer all questions to be certain the customer is ready to begin. Matt provided follow-up emails for deliveries and scheduling of the project. He listened to descriptions of our ideas and provided enhanced drawings to help visualize the project. Matt is highly recommended and he even wound up doing work for my brother after our project was completed.

Steve & Mary  Severna Park, Md

We had Gately Scapes design and install a front walkway for our home. I must say, this has been a very pleasant and exciting experience for my wife and myself. Matt Gately was extremely easy to work with. He had lots patience as my wife and I made decisions on style, type, color of stone, etc. His attention to detail was superb. I am amazed at how well the final project ended up looking like the scratched idea my wife and I started with when we first met with him. We look forward to having him come back in the Spring, to upgrade our landscaping!
