I cannot be happier than I am! Green Thumb not only gave me the yard I wanted on my budget, but also got me a rebate back from the city for a whooping $1800!! Other companies I called knew nothing about this. Kudos to A Green Thumb!

We hired A Green Thumb 3 years ago, and when we decided to now do our front yard at our new home, we went with who did a great job at our house, which we sold, thanks to our terrific curb appeal and patio A Green thumb gave us!

You can add me to what seems to be a long list of satisfied customers. Landscaping can be a daunting project, but with Miss Murphy at the helm, all went smooth and my budget thanks her! And I'm happy too, no more mowing!(which REALLY makes my wife happy)

After reading all the reviews on Kudzu, I called, and I am glad I did! Top notch service, VERY knowledgeable on plants, irrigation, and general landscape issues. I'm now watering less, and enjoying more!

As an artist, I needed my yard to reflect my lifestyle and profession...which it didn't....now it does,,,,,lovely succulents and sculptural cactus and other plants were added by A green Thumb to create a drought tolerant garden and an area where I can showcase my work. Since I do sculptures, Taylor understood my needs and gave me quite the "sculpture in green"! I love it!

My yard had literally, gone to the dogs, ours. After years of trying to grow grass, plants, anything, my wife found A Green Thumb online and we decided to hire a professional. The results are magnificent! Artificial turf, dog-proof plants, and just an amazing transformation. Ms. Murphy has great creative ideas, along with cost effectiveness, excellent customer service! We had a great experience all around during our project! Bob Thorton

My 1968 tract house's back yard had gone literally to the dogs years ago & only had three tall pine trees left, under which nothing would grow. The front yard looked OK, though dated & tired, it consisted of a 20-year old lawn, juniper bushes lining the front wall, & overgrown ficus trees at the entry way. I wanted something different & easy to maintain, but didn't know how to get there. I saw a great review for A Green Thumb online & was inspired to call & ask for a consult. I met with Taylor Murphy for 3 hours and was sold. Her knowledge about what types of plants that should be grown in our semi-arid region was remarkable, since I wanted drought-tolerant & low maintenance yards, she designed a plan with that in mind. I had an existing patio and new patio awning in the back, so she kept that in the plan. She completely demolished the back and front yards, and created plans that extended existing hardscape and created new hardscape, to include a semi enclosed patio near the front door, with a fountain and bench. She incorporated a rock creek bed in front that also serves for drainage. Planting in front is all drought tolerant, yet many of them are lovely flowering bushes, ground cover or trees. In back Taylor extended the tiled patio area with decomposed granite paths and built a small fenced in area for my dog, with artificial turf (easy cleanup). My Lab now makes a beeline to his own shangri-la. Suzanne McPhatter February 1, 2010 www.linkedin.com

Taylor was very knowledgeable about drought resistant plants and put together a very thoughtful design for our yard. She also referred me to a landscape contractor that I was pleased with as well.

Glad to be of service! Come next spring, your family will enjoy the butterflies and hummingbirds that will come to visit your garden!
I cannot find you on there no more, but when I called, you seemed very knowledgeable. Your service is expansive. You come out, perform a consultation, then you have an amzing list of contractors, who each do a special task. Your recommendations for plants were perfect and you have an amazing personality. I promised to review you a long time ago, but just got the time and thought to get on here to do just that. You were awesome and loved your service!!!

Thank You Scott!
Ms. Murphy is a respected member of the landscaping community. My hardscape and landscape crews said they've never had such complete plans to work from. She has ideas to keep you in your budget. My little project got her full attention. Great ideas from this woman!

Thank You Terrie!
It has been almost a year to complete my landscape, and I'll tell you why: First, Ms. Murphy and company did an excellent job of producing exquisite plans for the front & back yads, as we prepare to sell our home of over 30 years. In the middle of it all, my wife of 40 years had a stroke, and things took a turn for the worst and looked grim. Ms. Murphy called me persoanlly to express her concerns for my wife's health and mine, as I was under terrible stress. She immediately haulted all work, emailed all contractors, and waited until things clamed down and came back to normal at my home. Ms. Murphy is the most caring compnay owner I have ever seen, as she sent a lovely bouquet and a card and never once mentioned money, as we had yet to pay final payment. I just wanted to let everyone know and thank Ms. Murphy and her crew! Bless you. F.S. Hannon sent by mail-------

After battling my allergies and finding out I was allaregic to most flowering plants in my yard, I hated the idea of relandscaping. Plus, I need someone other than just a contractor who knew nothing about plants. Ms. Murphy and her team came out and gave my a yard I can now live with! Lots of colorful foilage and not a bloom in sight! Knew a lot about low pollen producing plants and drought tolerant too! I thank you and my doctor thanks you!
