Before H+G Design I was afraid to go into my backyard. A steep grade overgrown with ivy & weeds was too shady for grass and virtually impossible to access from the top/front of my lot. HGD's thorough process, and Danna's willingness to spend the time explaining it, was a primary reason for hiring them, along with the design-build setup. I knew that with a stream I would need help navigating regulations & that the design would be complicated because of it, and HGD exceeded my hopes on all counts. The crew were efficient,personable,& hardworking and the site was always immaculate. All operational details & arrangements were handled smoothly & I always knew what to expect before it happened. Danna's vision gave me a beautiful landscape with a patio and yard that is accessible via a winding pathway, and one that integrates natural positives with an ordered future. I now am proud to have guests experience my yard. I recommend HGD 110%--I can't imagine working with anyone else. Thank you Danna & Conrad!!
