We hired bsq (Robert), on a recommendation from a friend, to design a Japanese-style garden at the front and to do a face-lift of our existing garden at the back. The front garden design was quite complex, involving a fish pond, a deck, a miniaturized hilly landscape with many different plants, stone work, and a concrete driveway with etching patterns. We are overall totally happy with the result. The front garden is uniquely beautiful, and the renovation of the back garden looks great. The contractor they brought in to do the actual work, Lawrence, was excellent - well equipped, hard working and assisted by great workers.
Robert was well organized, pleasant, knowledgeable and informative. The only reason I didn't give him 5 stars is that the project was very slow to start. We missed a whole season before the design was complete and the project got underway.
