"John designed and executed our very extensive landscape project in 2015. He was creative in the design and patient with us throughout the project. We had many meetings to come up with the final plan . . . The project proceeded very well, and John was always available almost immediately via text or email or coming in person to answer our questions and supervise the workers and subcontractors . . . We worked getting bids from 5 other landscape contractors. John was the most creative and mindful of the particular challenges involved with our project, and priced fairly. I highly recommend him for any project."
