Customer Testimonials

Joe Lamacchia and his crew did an amazing job paving my driveway at my home in West Newton. They started with helping with the permit at City Hall and worked with the Engineer Department. They handled the dig safe requirement and most importantly installed a storm water drainage tank required by the city.

Everyone one his team were polite and professional. They made my yard look better than ever. I would proudly recommend his services to anyone who is looking for an asphalt contractor

Boston, MA

Thank you for our new beautiful driveway. This is the second great driveway you made for us in 35 years. The first one only had to be replaced because of NationalGrid and hon improvement construction damage.
Your crew was very punctual and completed the job perfectly to specifications and left the area cleaned up.


Newton, MA

Hi Joe I just wants to let you know that I am very pleased with the work that was done by your crew and the overall professionalism with the way our project was handled from the initial call right through completion of the project.  Definietly recommend your company to others

Thank you!


Waltham, MA

I am very happy with our driveway and walkway


Waltham, MA

I received three estimates to have my existing driveway removed, widened and repaved. Of the estimates, one was way over-priced and the other company, a well-known company as a matter of fact, went to the house when I wasn’t home and sent me their estimate via email. So how could they possibly know what I wanted them to do? So that was a strike right there.

Joe met with me and went over what I wanted to do, and he suggested a slight curve to the driveway which I didn’t really think about, but decided to go with his suggestion – great suggestion!

I was also impressed with the many customer reviews I read, and what interested me was the fact that some of his customers had some problems and Joe fixed their problems – which was important to me because I knew I was hiring a company that was reputable and would take the time to make it right.

Having a new driveway just makes everything look great – the house, the property – it’s so nice coming home at the end of a workday pulling into my beautiful driveway!

Thanks Joe for your excellent service and for your professional team of workers.


Waltham, MA

Could not have gone better. Joe came, looked at the job, understood our requirements, gave a us a price and then just got it done. We now have a beautiful new driveway with a brand-new drainage system, all done on time and at the price quoted. I wish every project could go as smoothly. Many thanks!


Belmont, MA

In 2010, Joe did an excellent job patching my driveway, extending my brick walkway, and lining the driveway with cobblestones……..at an excellent price. I am very happy with his work.


Newton, MA

A couple of years ago we used Lamacchia to install a storm drain in our yard, to handle storm runoff/snow melt. Joe did the work on time + budget. And then when the drain overflowed after a big storm, he expaned it with an overflow tank. And wouldn’t take payment for the addition. No problems even in the worst weather since then. No hesitation about recommending Lamaccia.


Boston, MA

We love our new driveway! The crew has obviously worked together many times…each guy knew what to do and when to do it.

Brian and Sarah

Newton, MA

We have lived in Newton for the past 33 years. We received several quotes for repaving our drive and Joe’s quote was excellent. But, more importantly, both his work and his employees’ work were OUTSTANDING. He and his troops showed up early with numerous trucks and equipment. Joe discussed and answered all of our questions and his employees worked extremely hard with no breaks. They were very professional, communicated well and finished on time. AND the driveway is beautiful. I highly recommend the services of Joe Lamacchia.

Bob and Janice

Newton, MA

Our driveway was in ill repair and in need of a proper drainage system. Joe Lamacchia and his team completely saved the day. Joe was confident, thorough, professional and skilled. His forward thinking and planning was well articulated. He is clearly a seasoned professional as his experience is reflected in the final product. His team is polite, punctual, and clean when the work is done. My friends laugh, but I have never enjoyed a home improvement project more! The driveway and drainage is amazing. I would hire Joe and his team again in a minute. I also greatly appreciate his passion for his work and commitment to a job well done.


Newton Center, MA

Thank you so much for the great work you and your team did on the installation of the new message board at our school. The new border and landscaping around the board turned out neat and beautiful. The improvement to the look of the front of the school is amazing and we’ve had only positive feedback from parents.

It was a pleasure doing business with you. I really appreciate that everyone showed up to work on time and completed the project quickly and professionally. I hope to work with you again soon and will readily recommend your company to others.


Newton, MA

Thanks for the great sealcoat job. I appreciate it. Your son has a great personality.


Wellesley, MA

Could not be happier with the service I received or the outcome of my patio, driveway, or landscaping. Joe’s staff and workers could not be more attentive to my needs or meticulous in their work. Thank you so much Joe!!!

Angela Walker

My new front walk is very good. Thank you and your men for a job well done.


Newton, MA

Joe Lamacchia Landscaping resurfaced our driveway in October 2011, installing an asphalt patch about 25 feet long to re-level a sunken part that collected water, and seal coating the remaining part, about 25 feet long. It looks good, it is level and it is shedding water the way we had hoped. In 2006 Joe also built a very attractive new retaining wall on the hill in front of our house to replace a decayed wooden timber wall, and his good work on that prompted us to hire him again for the driveway. We are happy with both items and recommend him for similar jobs.


Auburndale, MA

I found Lamacchia Landscaping to be courteous, punctual; the work crew arrived on time, worked as stated, and finished and cleaned up. We were very pleased with their work and our new driveway. I would recommend them.


Newton, MA

Again Joe I can’t thank you enough for the absolute wonderful job your crew did at my home in Waltham. your crew was courteous and professional! They cleaned up beautiful and were considerate of my neighbors everyone liked them and your work. Well done Joe! and your employees are second to none, you must pay well they are so happy at their job. WOW…..see you again.


Waltham, MA

I was certainly impressed that you and your crew were able to finish the driveway in one day as promised. I plan to applaud the job on Angie’s list, as well as tell my neighbors and friends.


Newton, MA

Thank you so much for the great job you did. It is such a treat to
finally have all of the tiny jobs around the outside of our house done. The neighbors have complimented us on our new lawn. The front path is no longer a tripping hazard. The fence is finally closed up again, discouraging the local wildlife from leaving special “gifts” in our back yard. Finally, the patio is wonderful. We no longer track mud and debris into our garage when we enter through the back door. Even the little gap between the bulkhead and the foundation finally looks clean and finished! We look forward to using all of our refreshed outdoor spaces in the coming years.


Newton, MA

Thank you!  I’m sitting outside and staring at how good it looks!  😊😊
Andrea, Waltham MA

it was a pleasure, thank you. Bryon and his crew were really good and friendly guys.


Peter F

Driveway in Belmont MA

We needed to have a retaining wall replaced and asphalt replaced on a parking area for about 10 cars.  Joe came out personally, asked a few questions, measured and gave a written quote on the spot – and over delivered on what we expected.  He not only stuck to his pricing, but when we requested adding a parking stop barrier, he accommodated the request and only charged a small incremental to cover labor – other contractors may have taken the opportunity to up charge us, but he didn’t.  His crew is fantastic, his work is excellent and the whole process from quote to payment is straight forward and refreshing when all other contractors seem complicated.  I would highly recommend Lamacchia for any masonry and asphalt work you need done.
Thanks Joe

Newton, MA

Last year Joe rebuilt my front FlagStone walk and did an outstanding job. Anyone that has a flag stone walk knows what it can be in the winter time to clear it from snow..Had no problem this year and with all the snow we had it was a snap to clear.


Newton, MA

Thank you to Joe and his staff for quick, easy service and delivery – and for supporting local schools!


Newton, MA

Great service, prompt, courteous, professional and the best price. Happy with the result. Thanks.

Newton, MA

We have been homeowners in Newton for 15 years. We have worked with more than a dozen tradespeople over this time and Joe Lamacchia is one of two, yes, only two, professionals whom I would feel completely comfortable hiring for a major home improvement project that needed to be done without us here. Last year, he rebuilt our driveway while we were out of the country. I never worried about it because he put so much prep work into the project. His pride of workmanship shined through from the start. When we got home, it was just as he promised, “Like the Mass Pike!” I smile every time my car rolls onto it. Thank you Joe, you are the best!!!


Newton, MA

It was our pleasure to have Joe and his team do sorely need cellar bulkhead exit masonry work and a driveway replacement with drainage. Joe and his courteous team were professionals in every way. As a plus, Joe carefully listened to customer ideas regarding the project, and his team was coordinated with any changes.

Very pleased with the results.



Marilyn Munsey

Waltham, MA

We are extremely happy with the job you and your crew did paving our private road and paving our driveway. The road was an ugly mess and now it is a pleasure to drive on. You were very patient with all of the neighbors involved and listened to all of our requests. Your crew was punctual, efficient, and enthusiastic about the job. On top of all that your price was very competitive. Thank you for doing such a great job!


Newton, MA

Joe Lamacchia has been doing work for me for 25 years, both professionally and at my home. He’s truly extraordinary, very conscientious, thorough and dependable. He also has a social service conscience and donates his time and money to the Cancer Center in Jamaica Plain, clearing underbrush, planting new bushes, mulching and giving general landscaping care. I can’t recommend him highly enough.


Brookline, MA

Michael M

You installed my driveway in July 2014. I wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the job you did.

Everyday when I look at it I smile. Not one drop of water has gone into the basement since you did the job. I never thought you could direct the water away so successfully.

I have told anyone and everyone who asked that they can use your company with confidence. It’s nice to know you can find a reliable company to do the job right.


Watertown, MA

I really appreciate the professional job that you and your crew did.

I was pleased with the entire process. The “no pressure” process of getting an estimate and scheduling the work was appreciated. Your crew arrived on time as scheduled and completed the job just the way you promised. The yard was left clean and neat. I was especially pleased with the small cement well you build alongside the front corner of the driveway near the garage to support the asphalt. That was unexpected and most appreciated.

David K.

Brighton, MA

I have been working with Joe for 17 years. He has done beautiful stone masonry, blacktop, mulching, weekly yard maintenance and more at our home. His prices are fair, his work thorough and his attention to customer service is beyond compare. I recommend his company highly. He’s no nonsense and proud of it!


Newton, MA

I wanted to tell you your guys did a very good job my driveway! I am pleased with what they did.

Newton, MA

Joe Lamacchia Landscaping recently repaved our 80-foot driveway and did extensive repairs to both sides of a very long wall in our back yard, including two separate staircases. We are very pleased in every respect. His pricing is very reasonable and his workmen are very pleasant and accommodating.


Newton, MA

1. Selection Phase: Joe was very responsive to all inquiries. He made several personal visits to our work area and made sensible recommendations. He was very competitive in his proposal and provided multiple references outlining high quality.

2. Work Phase: His schedule was flexable allowing all residences to adjust to a particular time frame for the work. The work was done on time. The quality was excellent. Our street looks great!

3. Post Work Phase: He visited the job and reviewed the work for quality making sure that the job was well done.

Recommendation: I would like to recommend Joe and his company as a responsive, competent, and competitive company.


Needham, MA

We have done extensive renovation work after moving into our home in Newton. Joe has installed a new driveway, new walkway and new front stairs/landing. The work was outstanding and his men were polite and professional.

Throughout the process, Joe has been honest, straight-forward and fair; he is a man of his word. I recommend him without reservation.

Hi Joe,

You and your guys did such an excellent job and were so pleasant to have working here. It was a totally positive home improvement experience. I can understand why so many people are eager to recommend your company, and I am now one of them.

Many thanks!



Wellesley, MA

I am delighted with the fine job the Lamacchia company did replacing my driveway. It was definitely a high quality operation, efficient, and professional from start to finish and, at the same time, priced very fairly. I couldn’t be more pleased.


Newton, MA

Joe has done several paving jobs for us and every time his work has been excellent, and his crew has been very professional and courteous. I would highly recommend Joe Lamaccchia.


Newton, MA

I got at least 5 quotes to have my driveway re-paved. Joe came in with a good price and a guarantee that could not be beat by others. He did a great job and now my driveway looks fabulous.


Wellesley, MA

I have been intending to write you this letter for three+ years. That I should tell you how significant it is that even after all my procrastination’s I still feel you are due the following review. You may recall that you put in a driveway for us that did not meet our or your expectations. You were not satisfied with the initial attempt to remedy so you redid the work to everyone’s satisfaction.

When a job does not go as planned, a real measure of the quality of the contractor is tested. You proved to be a man of your word. Whenever I arrive home after a rain and notice that there are no puddles, I am reminded that I should write you a note to say thank you. I finally got around to it. Thank you for a job well done.


Newton, MA

We used Joe Lamacchia to widen our driveway so we could easily fit two cars and get to car seats on both sides. They had to take out the old driveway, remove a tree stump, and pave a new one. We are very happy with the service we received. While our pavement is still fresh, the process from start to finish was one of the best we’ve had with any contractor. Joe provided advice that was consistent with other estimates we received, yet at a much fairer price point. He and his team ensured we were happy with the layout of the driveway and very detail oriented. They were very quick to follow through and we had a finished driveway within two weeks from the first point of contact. All of his team members were incredibly nice and both Joe and his son went out of their way to ensure we were happy. We would highly recommend — they are honest, fair, efficient, timely, and high quality.


Newton, MA

Just had our long and complicated driveway asphalt/paving work completed by Joe Lamacchia. He and his crew did a fabulous job. It did take a while to get it right,but we’ll worth the wait. His attention to detail and his promise to get it done right was true to his word. Would highly recommend him for any job

Joe Lamacchia Landscape has been working for the Leventmans for more than 20 years.

The Lamacchia Team has done great work for us at an always fair price. His team keeps our curb appeal high- from beautiful lawn care in spring and summer to ice and snow removal in the winter. We might not be able to keep living in our home in Newton if not for the always courteous and responsive care of the Joe Lamacchia team.

Thank you Joe.


Newton, MA

Professional, Reliable, Honest— Joe Lamacchia and crew have been taking care of all my landscaping needs for over 15 years. Joe has always been superb to deal with – responsive, honest, a true straight-shooter. Quality of his work is first rate – regular lawn maintenance always done to my satisfaction and any additional work is performed exactly as requested.


Newton, MA

Hi-Please tell Joe I said “thank you for fixing my parking.” No water pools after the rain. Came out great. Let him know that I gave his name to several commercial real estate clients. He’s a man of his word. Thanks again.


Brookline, MA

Thank you very much for the fantastic stone wall you installed in my yard. I had called many masonry people over the past year to complete this project. You responded quickly and efficiently as others did not and arrived on time, and I can now look in my back yard at my beautiful wall that can be used as an extra sitting area and retainer wall. You knew exactly what to do. Thank you for your professionalism and expertise.


Newton, MA

Wow! What a pleasure it was to do business with Joe Lamacchia. Joe expanded my driveway, installed a 500 gallon drain, rebuilt retaining walls, skim coated the foundation where needed, paved and then restored order. The work was done quickly and efficiently by courteous workmen. I could not be more pleased by the transformation. Joe’s customer relations are excellent; he delivered as promised and at a competitive price.


Needham, MA

We just wanted to show our appreciation for the incredible job that you and your team did on our patio and yard. From the prompt communication to the team that went above and beyond to get the job done so quickly, we couldn’t have been more pleased with the entire experience. I came home from the hospital with a new baby to a gorgeous new yard, thanks to you!

Hope you enjoy some coffee, etc on us. We would love to see you guys again soon for a spring clean up and will be in touch. Thank you again!

Brookline, MA

Lamacchia landscaping did a great job paving our private road. Joe the only one who insisted on a personal visit when bidding on the job and was very willing to talk with all of the homeowners on the street to make sure everyone understood what the work entailed. In addition he provided his insurance and references without having to be asked. the crew showed up on time and the work was done ahead of schedule. what more can you ask for? I would not hesitate to to recommend Lamacchia landscaping to anyone. it is a pleasure to do business with someone who takes such pride in their work.


Needham, MA

Joe and his guys did a fantastic job. Not only were they the only landscapers (we contacted about 10 different local companies) that we could get to call us back after seeing our property, but they finished the job in less time than they anticipated. They were easy to communicate with, were incredibly flexible with our work schedules, and agreeable to completing the work on chilly December days instead of waiting until the Spring. We will definitely call them back for future work, and will recommend them to our friends and neighbors.


Waltham, MA

Thanks so much for the exceptional work you did on our driveway. We thoroughly enjoyed working with your company from start to finish. We appreciated how you came by a couple of times to go over the job again and again to reduce the questions that always come up. Your crew was utterly professional and respectful to us, And the driveway came out better than we ever imagined! We look forward to recommending you to our friends and if you ever need a reference, please feel free to call!

We have been using Joe for over 25 years at our Newton house for lawn care, blacktop and multiple hardscape projects.

Thanks again to Joe and crew for a great job on the front walkway rebuild.

Bob, Belmont

Front Walkway Rebuild

We have been very satisfied with our experience with Joe Lamacchia. He worked on a complete landscape and hardscape design project for us. Right from the outset, Joe was on-time for his first meeting with us and quickly understood what we were looking for.

He made some valuable suggestions and gave us a competitive quotation. The work started on-time and his crew did a great job seeking input and making suggestions to complete the job on time. I would absolutely call Joe again for another project
