As first-time big-project people, we went into designing our back yard with some vision of what we wanted, but needed lots of direction. Derek very quickly came up with a design that we loved, and was very accommodating with any tweaks and changes here and there we wanted to make. The crew that did all the work was wonderful and hard-working, despite the crazy heat! We are thoroughly happy and impressed with the quality of work. They did not rush through it and not once did we feel as though we were just another job that they had to complete and get out of the way. They installed trees for us two years ago and we certainly made the right call to have them return to complete our back yard. We would very highly recommend Glen Echo to do any job!
