Awesome Design And Project Execution
5 out of 5 - by Ginny G. on May 31, 2017
I worked with Farwest Gardens as a consultant for a client. Crumbling concrete retaining walls, bad drainage a total redo of the entire front yard, a large project. I interviewed several landscape architects for the job and choose Farwest Gardens because of their creative design ideas and knowledge of every aspect of the job. Others companies wanted to replace concrete with concrete or block pavers. Dan and Kris installed incredible boulder retaining walls, that cascade down the hillside, paver parking pad, patio and two pergolas, along with all the plantings. It has become the show piece of the neighborhood. I watch the young family in their new space, which they never used before, having dinner, evening fires and just enjoying the functionality of the space. I found Dan and Kris unshakeable when it comes to solutions and dealing with the unexpected, on this job it was a hidden well. They were responsive to all requests and really listened to what was wanted and came up with a design plan with amazing form and function and certainly a different approach to the project. Their knowledge of plants, whether natives, edibles, tropicals or ornamental is unparalleled. Their imagination and out of the box thinking has no limits and if they can think it they can do it. My clients are very happy, they expected a beautiful yard but are blown away by the functionality and use of the space. On my part working with Dan and Kris for 2 months was an absolute pleasure and I have made new friends, we are currently doing another job together and having the same great experience. I also love that they give back to the community with playground design and structures. I would highly recommend Farwest Gardens for any kind of landscape job.
