    The project is set to be installed in about a month but so far Drew is great to work with. Drew came down to the property for the estimate meeting, listened to what had in mind and made a few helpful suggestions. At Down to Earth Designs they do both design and installation work. No matter who you use, landscaping is not inexpensive. But Down to Earth Designs bid was reasonable and in-line with the other bids we received. The bid was very detailed and professional and included a design plan as well. We dialed in the plans before he sent us a contact and final bid. Last week we had another really great meeting with Drew down at the stone lot to pick out materials. He's been very patient with all of my questions and emails. He's also a good family man and just overall is a great person to work with.

    We recently had downspout and concrete work done by Down to Earth Designs. Drew and his team are knowledgeable, professional and all around good guys. In fact, we are looking forward to having Down to Earth Designs landscape our property this spring/summer. Keep up the good work! Andre Archie

    Drew from Down To Earth Designs provided an excellent service to my landscape project. His communication was top notch, his flexibility in scheduling the project was much appreciated, and the final product of my landscape effort was awesome. I will be calling him again when I need more landscape work completed.

    Similar to another person's review, Drew was anxious to get started, but that is the extent of his effectiveness. He cancelled 15 minutes prior to our initial consultation and made no apologies after I took off work and drove across town to meet him. He was then rude and told me to go somewhere else. I don't expect this guy will last long in this business.

    I would like to respond to the review as I did my best to make this meeting. I was held up on a jobsite because our lumber delivery fell through this day. This resulted in me running around town to get the materials we needed for the current jobsite and I was unable to make the meeting. I called with more than 30 minutes notice as I knew Ryan was coming from across town to meet with me. There was no rude response on my end. I simply offered some help to find another contractor if he was unhappy with me for not being able to make the meeting. As a contractor/busniness owner I know I will not be able to please everyone, however I always try to be respectful and courteous to our clients. If there are any concerns about the quality of our work or customer relations, please ask any of our hundreds of previous clients about there experience with Down to Earth Designs.

    I am unable to rate the work of Drew Rini because after initially indicating he was interested in my project he did not respond back to my emails. I would have appreciated at least some type of response even if it was to say he was not interested in the work. My other experiences with thumbtack had been very good so this was disappointing.

    Drew responded quickly and was on time, reasonably priced, and was the only person who bid that understood how dogs affect the landscape and how to design a dog-proof solution with dog safety in mind. I had wanted to hire him for another job but he was too busy!

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure to do your homework, not only on the contractor but with what you are looking to accomplish. Come to the table with some ideas or information about yourself and lifestyle. Not everyone is a designer, thats probably why you are here. Just make sure to engange yourself in the process and have fun with the design and construction phases. It should be fun, it is your home.
