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.
