Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects & Contractors in Palo Alto, CA
Keith Willig Landscape Services, Inc.
Landscape Architects & Contractors in Palo Alto, CA
"We worked with Keith this last winter to redo essentially all of the yard space for our suburban home. This included front (yard, walkways, driveway), back (yard, patio), sides (planter boxes, walkways). We're very happy with not just the results, but the experience of working with Keith. Our house is an Eichler, so we were looking for a modern aesthetic in the design phase. Both Keith and designer Charlie Loy worked on preliminary design iterations. We worked with Keith directly as the design finalized, through the inevitable tradeoffs between features & budget. Through the build process, Keith was creative, flexible, and unflappable in making design and build adjustments due to complications (tree overhang required fire put to move, which meant the layout of some key benches and walls had to move, Keith worked out a new design immediately) and opportunities (turning some reclaimed boulders and river rocks into a water-less water feature). Budget and schedule: Our budget was around $100K, and we were able to stick pretty close to it, by changing some design elements so that the final design was at budget. Once we were in the build phase, both budget and schedule went without a hitch. Of course there were delays, but Keith and Cesar, his foreman, kept us informed, and worked around delays (inspections, parts not showing up) as much as they could. The whole crew was professional and thoughtful throughout the process -remember when we had those big storms in Nov /Dec - they made sure that even tho the yard was a muddy mess, we had clear access to the house. In the end, we're very very happy, and I would whole-heartedly recommend Keith Willig. Our new landscaping is not only beautiful, its 10X more usable! Keith & co were able to unlock parts of the property that we didn't even think about, and make them great."

Verdance Landscape Design
Landscape Architects & Contractors in Palo Alto, CA
"I have had the pleasure of installing 2 projects designed by Verdance Landscape Design. John brought me in on both projects to do preliminary cost estimates which blossomed into construction contracts. John was extremely easy to work with as we co-labored to bring the homeowner's vision into reality. We share a passion for landscaping and are both interested in every little detail so that the final product is something we can take personal pride in. Whenever I had a question or was concerned about something he was readily available to help and give his direction and input. I would highly recommend John if you value great, well thought out design and someone who can take your project all the way through completion. I look forward to installing many more of Verdance's Award Winning landscapes in the future."

"An excellent landscape designer. Worked with me to provide a design that helped me express myself.........when I didn't even know that was happening. He took a small lot in a nice neighborhood with 1960;s tract housing and made it look large, restful, private and at the same time accessible & inviting to neighbors passing by."

Lifescape Custom Landscaping, Inc.
Landscape Architects & Contractors in Palo Alto, CA
"As a professional landscape designer, I don't trust just anyone to install my designs, and I'm wary when working with a contractor for the first time. But when my VIP clients needed a swimming pool with spa and waterfall, stone patios and seatwalls, cedar arbors, a built-in BBQ, lighting, plantings, a putting green... the works!... I invited Jeff Veliquette of Lifescape to bid, based on similar projects in his portfolio. My clients ultimately hired Lifescape -- and man, am I glad they did! It was an ambitious design with lots of opportunities for failure... and Lifescape turned it into a stunning success. Somehow Jeff not only kept track of countless details and changes, he and his crew executed them to an extremely high degree of finish. They truly take personal pride in a job well done, and obviously understand the meaning (and value) of terrific client service. Jeff also has great vision, and I was completely comfortable entrusting him to develop my ideas into a beautiful reality. Lifescape's foreman was a consummate professional as well, handling even my unreasonable requests with grace and good humor. All of us are delighted with the outcome of this project; and wary no more, I will be recommending Jeff to install more of my designs in the future."

Landscape Architects & Contractors in Palo Alto, CA
"Eric and Mae were the commensurate professionals from the begining of design to landscape completion. They had a consistent presence on-site to monitor work crews and hands on particpation to enusre the very best results...always paying great attention to detail. Also,It was very important to us to save and relocate most of the existing plantings to newly created beds. Eric and Mae did a wonderful, conscientious job of accomplishing that. Best of all, we can look out of any window in our house and see beautiful gardens, rustic decking, and majestic Maine-like boulders...just what we wanted."

She was very efficient with our time, and remained very responsive once the work was complete, addressing any follow-up questions we had. We would highly recommend working with Hrano Design on a project of any size!"

Green Patio Landscape Design
Landscape Architects & Contractors in Palo Alto, CA
"It was great to work with Lynn Saunders on a complete re-do of our landscaping. Lynn worked with us throughout the months-long project from generating initial design concepts, to finding and managing multiple service providers, ordering plants and trees and carefully overseeing every aspect of the installation. Lynn has so many wonderful qualities that make her a pleasure to work with. Not only does she contribute excellent ideas but she also really cares about the quality of work -- everything from how the plans translate to reality (and adjustments that must be made in the field), to the health of the plants and trees when they are delivered to the site, to the reliability and design of the irrigation systems. Since we live in an area with persistent water shortages and drought, I particularly appreciated Lynn's attention to our desire to have both a beautiful and climate-appropriate landscape. Lynn was also very attentive to our budget and I felt she treated the expenditures as though they were coming from her own pocketbook. I would recommend Lynn without reservation."
