We recently worked with Joe to develop a rear yard master plan to address challenges and accommodate our specific need to provide a secure space for our young son along and provide access from the driveway and detached garage. The design needed to address all of this in a limited user space due to a large slope facing the house running the length of the rear yard. Joe listened to our concerns and came up with a creative yet practical solution that worked within our budget.
Once the design was completed Joe helped us select a company from his network of contractors that was well suited to the work that needed to be done. He didn’t stop there but stayed with us throughout the project, sometimes showing up unannounced to check on progress. In fact when the sod delivery was delayed and a storm approaching, Joe actually helped to lay the sod to insure we beat the rain! We are very happy with the result and the process used. We found Joe to be a good listener and responsive to our needs. I would feel confident recommending Joe as a qualified Landscape Architect to anyone considering an exterior renovation. He can help you from concept to completion.
I enjoy a reputation for quality pool installation. Most of my work comes from referrals based on that reputation. I am therefore very protective of my reputation as it is the source of my livelihood. Over the past few years I have been involved with J Duggan Associates, having installed some high end pools/amenities he has designed and referring clients I have who need quality design work.
Joes design sense and creativity really make spaces work, they reflect the site and always seem to fill the clients ‘wish list’ I have yet to see any of his clients less than completely satisfied with the results. In fact they usually end up friends for the long term.
One the construction management side, I find Joe to be a professional who works well with others. His designs work well and make sense-his graphics and construction documentation are clear and do the job. I especially like the fact that his 3d modeling insures clients understand what they are getting. The ‘see’ it before it is installed easing their concerns and making the installation process a much enjoyable one.
Joe’s strongest asset however is that he doesn’t have a ‘ego’ or is defensive regarding his designs. If I have a concern or know a better way to do things-he wants to hear about it, in fact he encourages such dialogue. Joe respects my expertise and does not dictate-he listens, he considers us all a team with the goal of completing another successful project.
I look forward to working with Joe in the years to come and would not hesitate referring him to my clients, something I take very seriously.
JDA designed our pool and outdoor living area. He exceeded our wildest dreams of creating a unique space where friends and family love to gather throughout the year. It also serves as a beautiful retreat for unwinding with a good book.
I recently worked with Joe Duggan on a Master Plan for my residence in Loudoun County, VA. which included numerous outdoor spaces, pool, pavilion, and fire pit, along with plantings and lighting throughout. His designs were imaginative yet practical, and his communication skills were great (both graphics and verbal). His ability to listen insured I was involved throughout and that my thoughts were always given serious consideration. His ability to work with contractors was also excellent. The end result was a project that exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Joe to anyone considering a Landscape Architect.
My wife and I had a very vague idea of what we wanted for a deck/patio combo on our new home. We knew we didn’t want a simple deck and slab for a patio so Joe helped clarify our thoughts. He was great to work with in that he listened to our wishes and made suggestions based on his experience to further enhance the design. His drawings and computer renderings of the project were great in allowing us to see what the final product would look like. Also, the contractor that he had come in to do the work was very punctual, courteous and professional.
We are very glad that we contacted Joe to help us design and build a very nice patio and deck. His help in making the project run very smoothly with minimum stress was greatly appreciated.
When building my house, the entire back was completely bare and a rocky, slanted, ugly mess. Joe came highly recommended and for good reason. I explained the deck, the trellis, the walking path and the pool I was hoping to have. Even when they seemed unreasonable for the situation, he listened with the patience of a saint and had such a confidence in what he could do and ideas right on site that clearly showed his creativity and ability to visualize and conceptualize. The design he came up with was beyond what I could have hoped for. No one thinks of plantings around a house like Joe does, too. The man loves what he does and he puts his whole self into it. I enjoyed the entire experience of working with Joe. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
