“We first hired Mark Schill when he was 16 years old.

He and his brother, armed with a rake, cleaned up our property after a hurricane had left branches and leaves strewn all over.They did a wonderful job. Not long after, Mark had formed a landscape company, Lakeside Landscaping. We again hired him to do our Fall & Spring cleanups. Our property in Peconic is dotted with more than a dozen large oak trees & three very large old pine trees. They really make quite a mess in the fall. Because one of our children had allergies we asked Mark to do the clean-ups before we would be out for Thanksgiving/Easter Vacation.It was always done. For years, our property has been meticulous. About 4 years ago, we no longer could cut the lawn or trim the bushes and so Mark & his staff, armed with professional leaf blowers and high tech equipment took over. They have been RELIABLE, COMPETENT, and COURTEOUS! When Huricane Irene hit the east end this past summer and our property was a mess, Mark's crew arrived without having to be called and made it look like the hurricane never was.

After more than 20 years, we are Lakeside Landscape fans and we have nothing but good things to say about their device.”

“Mark Shill is one of the best landscapers I have ever dealt with.

He and his crews work on our property as if i were their own. The weekly maintnenance of the lawns is only the beginning of the dedication. How many times have I seen a new bush or replacement of some annuals that have been "deered". Lakeside offers a great service and a creative design, they are willing to work with us and our piece of Paradise here on the North Fork.”

The Schills

“We have known Mark Schill and Lakeside Landscaping for many years.

They did the landscaping work at our first Southold house for at least 10 years. Three years ago we moved to our new Southold home complete with two (2) acres of much needed landscaping. Mark consulted with us and helped design what proved to be a beautiful project. Several tractor trailers loaded with plantings arrived and within several days the project was complete. Last year we installed a pool area and once again Mark helped design another beautiful job completed and ready to go for pool season. Our weekly lawn cutting and yard maintenance continues to get compliments from anyone who sees our property. Snow cleanup is also done when needed. You won't go wrong with this company.”
