We recently contracted Artistic Landscapes to execute a complete landscape renovation at our home and we are thrilled with the final result! We “sort of” had a plan in place when we reached out to Robert who was referred to us by a good friend. He started with our plan but also took the time to understand what our goals/concerns/vision behind the plan was and pretty quickly made some very compelling recommendations that made a lot of sense given what we ultimately wanted. While we had struggled working with other landscape contractors in the past, we immediately felt very comfortable with the contrast that Robert provided right from the start. The passion he has for his business and your project as a reflection of that business comes shining through the minute you meet him!
There were multiple times throughout our project that we decided to go against our typical detail-oriented instincts and rely on Robert’s expertise and we were really rewarded in a couple of ways: 1) it is not false advertising that artist is in the name of his business, our finished product is beautiful and far better than anything we would have come up with ourselves but still within the confines of our high-level agreed upon expectations, 2) Robert and his company really earned our trust including multiple times scaling back on certain aspects of our project to fit our budget as well as the fact that our final bill looked pretty much identical to the initial detailed quote we received in the first place (despite the fact we know they spent extra time and materials on certain areas).
When it came to the actual work itself, Robert’s crew was really impressive. They were extremely hard working (I couldn’t believe they worked through 100 degree weather!), very respectful of our privacy and property, and were very friendly to top it off. In fact, our young children were actually quite upset after 3-4 weeks when “the men” weren’t around to watch work in the yards anymore! Bottom line, Robert and his crew consistently went the extra mile and it felt like they treated our landscape renovation like it was happening at their own homes. I would (and already have) highly recommend Artistic Landscapes to anyone considering a small or large landscape project. My wife and I talked about doing something like this for a long time, and now we are thrilled we finally made this investment for our kids to grow up with and have an amazing set of yards to show for it.
