Thoughts from our clients

We’re getting ready to put our house on the market, so our goal was to find out how to have more curb appeal.

Ben provided solutions for trouble areas in our landscape that had been bothering us for years, and he helped us understand how these changes would require less maintenance.

We recommend working with Ben so you can have a healthy and beautiful landscape.

If you’re sick of wasting time in big-box plant centers trying to figure out what to do for your awkward yard space, talk to Ben.

After working 1:1 with Ben during a consultation call, I now have an actionable, easy-to-implement solution for the dead zone in my yard! In fact, Ben provided three options that would work for the space we have. I never would have thought of these options on my own, and the creative thoughtfulness Ben offered during our session just can’t be found anywhere else.
