A huge thank you to the other reviewers who evaluated Forest Hills Design Group (now Ashlar Landscapes--Ed) since their reviews were what first directed us FHDG's way.
It is with great pleasure that I offer this testimonial regarding landscaping work carried out at our home by FHDG. If you are reading this review then like us you are on “Homestars” seeking help in finding a reliable and honest contractor.
After contacting a number of companies, we eventually narrowed our search to two. While both had received very favourable reviews on this site, we were amazed by the substantial price difference between both (almost 20%). Since we felt the other company had given us an inflated quote and as we had a limited budget we went with FHDC (I have to confess with some second guessing as per the adage “you get what you pay for”). Giving us some comfort was the positive first impression that Forest Hills owner, Daimon Ferguson, made when we met him.
From start to finish this was a dream project (I am in no way connected to Forest Hills less the enthusiasm of my review raises that question). Immediately after meeting with Daimon we received a detailed quote. He committed to commence the work on a specific date and he did! We had been prepared for work on the project to stop and start as other client demands surfaced. However, Daimon and his team turned up early each morning and worked non-stop through supper time, until the project was completed in record time.
Daimon is the consummate professional, he takes great pride in his work and his attention to detail is amazing. He couldn't have treated our project any better if it were his own home. His guidance and suggestions as the design evolved were invaluable. Even once work started he was extremely flexible to design changes to make sure we were 100% happy with the final look. He had tremendous patience as we hummed and hawed about what we actually wanted, eventually guiding us to a project that we both love and which has greatly enhanced the value of our home. We have already had people at our door asking for his card.
We had waited a long time to do this project and couldn’t be happier with the final result. The quote and final invoice were exactly the same, no hidden costs, even when our design changes expanded slightly....
Working with Daimon was such a pleasure, honest and sincere, he was a true professional and we are delighted to sing his praises to others seeking a recommendation and look forward to having him involved with future projects. Go with Daimon and FHDG.....you truly won’t be sorry.
