After interviewing four other landscapers, I knew that John would be the perfect man for our backyard renovation. Three things that impressed me were: 1. His ability to draw likes/dislikes from our conversations and implement into the project. 2. His vast knowledge about plants. 3. The fact that he did not propose a project that exceeded our budget. In fact, the right answer for our situation was 10% less than the budget we gave him. His crew was very professional while on site.
