I hired Dave to work on a garden gone wild. Although there was a decent foundation to work with, the garden was completely overgrown, and I was completely overwhelmed. We set a budget, and devised a plan to attack the work in stages, since there was just so much to do. Within just a few meetings with Dave and his very capable crew, I was so comfortable with his plan that I essentially turned the project over to him, telling him to do whatever he thought best. I watched my garden undergo a huge transformation, resulting in a finish that far surpassed my expectation.
I would strongly recommend Dave for any type of landscaping/design work. He's knowledgeable, honest, and fair. And -- as an aside -- don't think of him only for traditional landscaping services. He grew a vegetable garden in my back yard that I'm quite sure was one of the most bountiful gardens in my neighborhood. Not only was it delightful to pick from a variety of tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, squash, cucumbers, and zucchini (to name a few), but the occasional visits from his delightful daughter and sometimes-helper, Sage, were an added treat!
