Our backyard is in a relatively new subdivision and had only grass, wooden fence, shed and deck...absolutely no garden, shrubs or trees. Fortunately we decided on having Glen Echo design and plant a new garden for us. We are absolutely thrilled with the finished product. It has made our backyard a beautiful oasis for us to now enjoy. We have a number of people to thank for their efforts in bringing such warmth and beauty to our home. Well earned kudos to Anthony Zambri, the landscape designer who came up with the design and wide assortment of trees, shrubs, plants and rocks. He is a young, personable gentleman who listened carefully to our wishes and put much effort into the variety of products, their colour, their size, texture, placement etc. Our backyard what with its size and shape presented quite a few challenges. We are pleased to say that Anthony's design met and surpassed all of the challenges.
He was prompt in coming up to measure and complete the design, took the time to go throughout the nursery to select the various trees, shrubs, plants and rocks with us personally. Each day the workers were here, he came to see the progress of the job and to see if we were satisfied, he even helped deliver the 3 Japanese maples we had purchased. His pleasant demeanor put us at ease if we had questions or concerns and made us feel that he wanted the best possible results for us. We have to say, Anthony came through indeed.
We would be amiss if we did not also mention the work team of Casey, Rene, Raphael and Troy. I have rarely seen a team work harder and so well together. Casey, Raphael and Rene came on the first day and worked tirelessly the entire day in a constant rain. The blue spruce was planted, garden beds dug, fresh top soil added and the rocks placed. The second day, Casey, Rene and Troy did all the planting. Casey's expertise in planting is top notch. He had some very positive suggestions and answered any questions we had.
Neighbors have had nothing but positive comments on the finished product.
Thanks to Glen Echo Nurseries, Anthony, Casey, Rene, Raphael, Troy and Cheryl in the office, the transformation of our backyard has been everything and more than what we had hoped for.
Thank you for all your efforts.
