"... I finally have people stopping by my house and commenting on how wonderful my yard looks"

"After years of having landscape envy, I finally have people stopping by my house and commenting on how wonderful my yard looks.  Matt did a great job of transitioning a very dated design into something to be proud of.  Having dealt with seepage in our house, Matt also helped design a drainage system and also create a beautiful landscape feature in doing so."

"... I appreciate that the service that Matt provides is an opportunity to discuss design- not a sales pitch"

"Matt worked with us to create a plan for both the front landscaping and an area in the back.  He interviewed us to understand the type of look we wanted and what type of maintenance we were willing to work with.  He showed us photos and worked with us to make sure we were in agreement with the types of plants selected.  

I appreciate that the service that Matt provides is an opportunity to discuss design- not a sales pitch.  I know that Matt knows his business and it was refreshing to talk to him."

"... his creativity and knowlege were amazing... I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!"

"Matt, the owner, came out to our house to design a landscape plan for our back yard.  He took detailed notes and within a week he came back to our house with the design.  He incorporated all of our requests.  His creativity and knowledge were amazing.  He sat with us and showed every flower and plant he intended to use.  He also recommended a company to help fix an issue that needed to be done before we started our yard.  I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!"

"... cost effective design"

"Provided professional designs for two large stone monuments/signs at entrance of our neighborhood as well as the surrounding landscaping. We then used these professional designs to bid out the work, so all contractors are working off the same design to ensure comparable bids, which allowed us to get the best bid possible. The Company was very responsive and the designs were fantastic. The designer worked within our budget and produced a great looking cost effective design that we plan to use with construction beginning this spring. I would highly recommend to anyone considering a andscape project. It's hard to bid a job out if you don't have a professional design that covers all the etails of the project."

What a relief to have someone who can see the big picture! We are not afraid of work, but we lack vision. Thank you so much for sharing your expertice and vision with us!"
