Chris transformed our front yard in Prairie Village, Kansas in to a rain gardenno easy task! With an ecological approach, Chris incorporated native plants and stormwater management best practices into our front yard. Chris is highly-capable, intelligent, and hard-working. His ecological knowledge sets him and his work apart from the rest.May 13, 2015
Chris Cardwell has been WONDERFUL and we would highly recommend him! He is knowledgeable, trustworthy, punctual and a great teacher. We have an area of our yard we have dedicated to native grasses. We have struggled with them for about 5 years now and were thrilled to be referred to Green Hand Landscape Solutions (Chris) for advice and support. We liked him and his "quality work" so much we turned the project over to him. He is creating a beautiful area for us to enjoy along with the monarchs as we are hoping to designate this area as a monarch way station ( Chris idea! :) ).Apr 28, 2015

Chris has worked with me for three seasons. Chris has planted, transplanted, redesigned and maintained. He has wonderful ideas, and is a fast, careful and artful worker. I'm always delighted to call him and with his results.Apr 15, 2015
It did not really work out. Stated that he would do work on particular dates but never showed up. Highly unorganized and pretentious. Work never started as he had excuse after excuse. I do not see any "recent" reviews or recent work - that may be why.Jul 7, 2014Christopher C.'s reply
