Northwest Horticultural Services
About this pro
I spent a large amount of time communicating with clients making sure I know what they want and, conversely, they know exactly how the project is going to be handled. I walk the job with the client before, during, and after the job. My proposals are one price with the only variation being if additional materials are needed. Because I only do quality work, clients do not pay extra if additional is needed to do the job properly Other than the creativity the job provides, I like working with customers providing the outdoor environment they want.
