Description Of Work:
Nature’s Dream Landscape provided the complete landscaping design and installation for our backyard remodel. This included coordination with all subcontractors.
After completing our deck and swimming pool remodel, we realized that the current state of the backyard landscaping needed to be addressed. We were looking for a simple design that would compliment the new hardscape, but the backyard was rather large and intimidating. We contacted Victoria via Angie’s list and she responded the same day. She arrived at our house on time and wasted no time walking around the property and then sitting with us to get our input. She brought many photos of plants and flowers andtook notes of all the things we liked. When Victoria left that evening, we were very impressed.
We scheduled her presentation 7 days later and again, we were not disappointed. She delivered two separate options for us to choose based on our input the first night. The presentations were generated by a CAD program that printed the entire property with her design elements and photos of the plants that would be placed in each area of the yard. The thought process and attention to detail was extraordinary… and again, we were very impressed.
Considering the amount of work to be done, we anticipated that the job could take weeks. We agreed on a start date after selecting a subcontractor to install updated irrigation lines, pump and timer. Victoria coordinated with all of the subcontractors and my wife and I just kept an eye on things. One advantage that Victoria has… her husband owns the nursery that provides the beautiful healthy plants that were delivered. Ray and Victoria arrived on day 1 and introduced their crew. We provided them all with cold water and gatorade as the transformation evolved. It was spectacular. By the end of the first day, over 120 holes had been dug and more than half of the shrubs were planted. The crew cleaned up after themselves as they progressed and the job was completed within 4 days!
Honestly, we have never experienced a more professional landscaping company. In fact, Victoria is not just a landscape designer, she is a landscape architect and worth every dollar we spent! We are extremely proud of our backyard remodel and we would highly recommend Nature’s Dream Landscape to anyone. They are spectacular… and now… so is our backyard.
