I was so excited when I came upon Home & Garden Design, Inc. because it was very important to me to find a landscape company that embraces holistic principles. Danna and Conrad understand the energy and integrity of the land ... that "feng shui" element which assures you flow through the space with ease. Each little nook of the yard suddenly had a purpose. It's like our land had doubled in size! They also understood how to take care of the land without relying on harmful chemicals, which is very important to us, especially since we have three children. I was so relieved to be able to entrust the transformation of our yard to an organic team. With their warmth, professionalism, and experience, they made every step of the design and implementation process comfortable for us. I know that Danna and Conrad were meticulous about the details of the design and quality of the work. Thank you for transforming our backyard from an ivy mess to beautiful terraces where our family has been playing in ever since.

We cannot say enough good things about working with Danna on our landscape update. We needed a complete change with our front yard of builder grade shrubs that were almost 20 years old. She got it right with her design. The extensive questionnaire, while daunting at first, gave her all the pieces we were looking for in our new landscape. Her design was beautiful and we have received so many compliments from our neighbors. Danna is certainly 'a good thing'.

So many in the neighborhood have mentioned how much they enjoy seeing our backyard when they drive by!† The jasmine on the trellis is doing incredible. The lorepetalum on the right side of the house is The kids were picking blueberries this week. We had so much fun & think about how lucky we are. The back walkway by the blueberry bushes was worth every penny - the kids love it!†

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!!

Home & Garden Design just finished completely revamping our tired, overgrown and yes, blah front yard and we are completely delighted with the end result. Danna guided us through a thoughtful, creative planning process so that we learned what would work best for our front yard. She listened carefully and had excellent suggestions and alternatives, when needed. H&GD's professional crew did outstanding work and cleaned up every day, so we never came home to a messy yard. The entire process was a true delight and we recommend Home & Garden Design highly for any landscaping project, small or large. We cannot wait to see what our perennial urban garden will look like next year!

It's amazing how you captured the colors and textures of our past home in the Southwest and translated that into a landscape that will grow here. † When we first saw the creativity and diversity of your designs at the home show, we knew you had the talent for this challenge. Thank you so very much.†

I'm SO excited about my new backyard. It's such a special place. It really looks nice. It makes me smile every time I look out there. Thank you for all your hard work and for making every detail so perfect. I knew you'd do a great job. We were so happy when you did our front yard 20 years ago. We didn't even think about calling anyone else to do this new project.

Your work is much, much more than designing, it is the commitment to making a difference. With your support and encouragement to assist others to reach out and explore the wonders and mysteries of nature. You offered me the possibilities to extend myself and express a primordial instinct of oneness with the earth. That essence of you continues to live in my garden, creating new dimensions and designs with every season. On one of our recent trips, the delight in coming home was multiplied when our house sitter shared his experience, his comment was, "It is truly a paradise."

You guys did an awesome job! We are very happy with everything. It will take time for us to learn the name of each plant, so your updated blueprint will really help out. We noticed and appreciated your attention to detail on building the rock walls, the preparation of the beds, the placement of the plants, everything that went into the project.

They have such a gift of vision, transforming my words to plans and then reality. They always made me feel that I was the most important endeavor they had and every detail was always at the top of their list. Conrad is so smart and realistic. Danna is so creative. Their work was of the highest quality and it came in at budget. The only downside to my project, was that it finally had to come to an end!

You truly can not find a better combination than Danna and Conrad Cain together. They are an incredible resource of talent. Danna is excellent with form, function and design. Conrad is the building, mechanical side. They are a great combination who work very well with each other. They are talented, on-time, knowledgeable, honest good people. If they don't know the answers, they admit it and go find the answers for you! You can not find anyone better.
