George Allin transformed my new home’s landscaping and saved me from an immense amount of anxiety! My husband and I recently purchased a home in Middle Tennessee while we were still living out of state. There were a number of landscape improvements we wanted to make before we moved, including installing fencing and a driveway gate, reshaping the entrance topography with a substantial amount of cleaning and clearing of brush and trees, installing a stone border to define the entry and installing sod.
I interviewed a few landscapers on the phone and George seemed like a perfect fit. I came to town and met with two of the candidates, but there was no question George was the one. He had great ideas, beautiful photos of other projects he had worked on and a very reassuring personality. He promised he would be on site managing everything, which was critical because I was going to be 4,000 miles away. I am a person who tends to micromanage, so not being here was going to be hard for me.
For the next few months George and I refined the design and he gave me various options at different price ranges. Once we settled on the final design and the work started, George was out here for all of the work and would send me lots of pictures and Skype with me to keep me updated. He would consult with me on detail questions because he knew how important the small things are to me.
Bottom line, when I drove down the driveway for the first time once we moved, I was elated. Everything was perfect. The reshaping of the topography, a huge undertaking, was better than I could have ever envisioned. The fencing was beautiful, and all of the details were spot on. We still have the planting portion of the project to complete, but I am confident that will work out as amazingly as everything else (and that’s the really fun part too).
Although I feel like this is a glowing review, it really doesn’t capture the depth of my appreciation for all that George has done to create our sanctuary here. At my previous home I lived through two significant landscape improvement projects, and they were way more stressful than this one, which should have been more difficult because I was not able to be here for it. But, George made it a breeze.
