    Never got the promised quote.

    Denise B. from Sacred Garden Designs, Inc. replied to this review on September 22, 2015:

    Hey Kent,
    Just noticing this email, as we are no longer active on this site.
    I checked our client contact files and we have a check mark that we sent a quote out to you 2 years ago. We have since updated our computer system and we did not keep the details of non-responsive client info.

    Just wondering why it has taken so long for you to get back to us and instead of asking what happened to your quote in 2013, instead you chose to post a less than favorable star rating 2 years later.

    If you never received a quote, it would have been great to have received a call and we could have found another way to get it to you since we may have entered an incorrect email for you as we don't use this site much.

    If you are still in need of a landscaping service, please give us a call and we will do our best to help you. We no longer have the details of your address, contact info., or project request. Thanks. Denise 310-980-2770

    What a wonderful experience to work with Denise. We decided to replace every plant and tree in our back yard, but had no idea what to replace it with, and Denise came up with great suggestions. She took the time to walk through the neighborhood with me to look at plants and designs that I had seen and liked. Denise did an excellent job of listening to what we wanted, what we liked, and what we didn’t like. She came up with a design that worked within our budget and exceeded our expectations. It is clear that she really enjoys guiding people through their landscape projects. She even visited us a few times after the project was finished, to check on a few plants and to fix a sprinkler. Denise is a delight to work with!

    How beautiful. Thank You so much Irene.

    I loved working with Denise. Our project was relatively small, but despite this, she took a significant amount of time and care in designing our landscape and responding to our needs. She came to the hosue several times to look at the space, and provided us with sketches before beginning work. She has also been good with follow up, providing us with a detailed maintenance schedule. And of course, the work she did looks wonderful! Our small deck area has become a tranquil oasis thanks to her.

    Denise at Sacred Garen Designs is wonderful. We have just begun working together but I feel like I have known here forever. Very professional and seems very connected to the project immediately. I will review again when we are deeper into the project but I am VERY happy to be working with Denise and feel very comfortable with her. I think it will be great.

    Thank you to Denise and her crew for a great job in clearing out my backyard that had many overgrown trees and bushes. They did the work on time and did what they said they would do. I would recommend Sacred Garden to anyone that needs landscaping & yard work done.

    I had the pleasure of finding my personal gardening consultant, Denise with Sacred Garden Designs.
    She came out gave me an estimate and kept in touch with me. We set up a date for the planting and creating my new patio. Not only was she prompt but left the area clean.
    I would refer Denise to my family and friends and would use her again.
    I'm hoping to keep her as my frequent landscaper and wish her all the best.
    She has a beautiful knack for design and planning.

    firstly, we had such fun working with Denise on our backyard playground and treehouse project. She communicated very well, gave good idea suggestions and pricing options. She also recommended an excellent carpenter who built a fabulous treehouse for us. The backyard turned out to be beautiful after Denise was done. Her work was meticulous and comprehensive

    Highly recommended!

    Sacred Garden Designs are the best! I am soo happy with the results of their work. My backyard was soo overgrown with bushes, weeds, and neglected trees. Their price was very reasonable and Sacred Garden's crew is so hard working and did a fabulous job on my propriety. Denise (the owner) is great, and she made sure the job was complete and to my expectations. I highly recommend Denise and her crew, their the best!!

    Denise is incredible! She's not only a true artist, but patient and kind to the neophytes like me over the 2 years we've worked together! She has a real skill for looking at your area, really listening to the things you love, and custom-designing a garden / landscape that's perfect for you. My projects with Denise were completed at the exact times promised and even under-budget! (very different vs. previous experiences) And the process was so simply and easy - she's a great manager & leader. I honestly can not recommend her highly enough! In fact, I've just moved from having a full garden to living in an apartment with a rooftop deck, so I'll be asking her to design my container garden as well. I can't imagine any garden or lawn area that wouldn't benefit from her touch!

Question and answer

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. I provide landscape design and installation services for single family residences, estates, apartment complexes, streetscapes, parks and playgrounds. Our focus is on landscapes that require a minimum amount of water and we can incorporate boulders, river rocks, statuary and site furniture based on an artistic theme that works with the site. Even though we have a focus on water-wise design, we also design pools, ponds and water features. We provide expert maintenance and irrigation services as well.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. When you are looking to hire a landscape designer, make sure the landscape designer has done projects similar to what you need to get done. Check their portfolio to see samples of their work and to see if their style resonates with what you are wanting to create on your property. Most landscape designers specialize, so ask for a free consultation to determine if their skills and style match with what you are needing. It goes without saying but it is important to underscore that the professional must have a friendly disposition and a great attitude and be able to get along well with all types of people. An ego has no place in a service based business. The professional must leave a confident, pleasing, lasting impression on the customer because in this kind of service, when we are designing personal space, the customer will always be reminded of the experience within which this space was created.
