This past summer, in a home we had recently purchased, John helped turn a previously neglected backyard into an attractive and useable space. Following some discussion, John presented us with a thoughtful design that addressed our various hopes regarding this space, making accommodations for our budget. The process was relaxed and low pressure, and worked around our availability and schedule. The work went forward as planned, and was completed on time. The crew was very professional and any questions we had during the project were addressed promptly. Importantly, potential inconveniences to our immediate neighbors were also anticipated and dealt with proactively. We are highly satisfied with the outcome. An outdoor space we had previously avoided is now a gathering place for our family and other guests we invite into our home. We would consider John and his crew our first choice for any future projects we might undertake, and would highly recommend him to others hoping to make similar improvements to their property.
