I am a landscape designer and have worked with Harris Landscaping on many projects over the last years. I appreciate their detailed proposals, their craftsmanship, their intuition, their adherence to the design, and their friendly crews. There is an English-speaking foreman on site to avoid any miscommunication and their project manager Nate and owner Ian are always available to take care of anything that may arise during construction. I feel my clients are in good hands when they decide to go with Harris Landscaping.
Alder Group, Pool and Landscape Co.

I just completed a remodel of my pool and landscaping with the Alder Group, and simply stated I could not be happier. From the first meeting until the project was completed, Don always looked for ways to improve the project and at the same time ways to minimize the cost of the project. His keen eye for design saw needed simple improvements that were relatively inexpensive but had a massive effect on the overall beauty of the project. Perhaps most importantly when the manufacturer delivered the wrong custom coping, and I worried that we would not be able to meet the deadline of a large party that was planned for my backyard; Don found a way to resolve the issue and keep the job on schedule. Don is truly one of the good guys.

Eric and Mae were the commensurate professionals from the begining of design to landscape completion. They had a consistent presence on-site to monitor work crews and hands on particpation to enusre the very best results...always paying great attention to detail. Also,It was very important to us to save and relocate most of the existing plantings to newly created beds. Eric and Mae did a wonderful, conscientious job of accomplishing that. Best of all, we can look out of any window in our house and see beautiful gardens, rustic decking, and majestic Maine-like boulders...just what we wanted.

Kristen designed a beautiful makeover for our yard - front, back and sides. She asked lots of questions before designing anything - what we wanted (pavers, pretty flowers), what we didn't want (water feature, yellow flowers) and in general, how we wanted to use our yard. She came up with lovely, detailed plans for a traditional looking garden (with our traditional looking house) - that were revised slightly with discussion, then found a couple of contractors to bid on the work. She supervised the work of the one we chose, making sure they followed the plans. She recommended a new gardner - good choice. About a year later she replaced the few plants that hadn't made it (for no charge), and now almost two years later the place is absolutely beautiful! I can't tell you how many complements we have received ever since the job was originally completed - and they continue to this day!

After attempting to design our front and backyard on our own....and never feeling satisfied with our ideas we decided it was time to hire a designer. Having known Kathy on a personal level for a few years she seemed like the perfect choice. I emailed her to ask about how she worked, cost, etc....and she got back to me promptly with detailed answers to my questions. We set up a time to do a walk through and we were impressed immediately by her eye for design, plant knowledge, thorough approach to the design/project, and creativity. We spent months brainstorming together in person, over email, through text, and even via Pinterest board. She created a wonderful landscaping plan complete with a visual plant list. The design included a paver driveway, rock walls, rock bench, DG patio, travertine patio, lawn, electric water feature, stone bird feeder, and beautiful drought resistant plants. We were pleased with her design and perfectionist attitude (woman of my own heart). When the design was complete we had a hard time finding a contractor in our price range that we felt comfortable with. Kathy went above and beyond to help us find the right person. We were so touched by her desire to make sure we had the right contractor to work on our yard for us that we hired her on to check on the project weekly. The project was completely in a timely manner (even with all the crazy rain), and turned out just perfect. To be honest it is even better than we imagined! We can't wait for all of our little plants to grow! She did an amazing job transforming our ivy jungle into a safe place for our toddler and dog to explore. We are already loving all of our time relaxing in our new space. She listened to all of our hopes and desires and truly created a special place.

Jim is incredible hard-working, diligent, knowledgeable, flexible and conscientious. He loves his work and it shows. My husband and I very much enjoyed the collaborative experience we shared with him while landscaping our new home. Jim has great vision and saved us from many potential mistakes and added a ton of value to our project. On top of everything, we enjoyed our meetings with him because he is a great guy and very personable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for any project.
Keith Willig Landscape Architecture, Inc.

We worked with Keith this last winter to redo essentially all of the yard space for our suburban home. This included front (yard, walkways, driveway), back (yard, patio), sides (planter boxes, walkways). We're very happy with not just the results, but the experience of working with Keith. Our house is an Eichler, so we were looking for a modern aesthetic in the design phase. Both Keith and designer Charlie Loy worked on preliminary design iterations. We worked with Keith directly as the design finalized, through the inevitable tradeoffs between features & budget. Through the build process, Keith was creative, flexible, and unflappable in making design and build adjustments due to complications (tree overhang required fire put to move, which meant the layout of some key benches and walls had to move, Keith worked out a new design immediately) and opportunities (turning some reclaimed boulders and river rocks into a water-less water feature). Budget and schedule: Our budget was around $100K, and we were able to stick pretty close to it, by changing some design elements so that the final design was at budget. Once we were in the build phase, both budget and schedule went without a hitch. Of course there were delays, but Keith and Cesar, his foreman, kept us informed, and worked around delays (inspections, parts not showing up) as much as they could. The whole crew was professional and thoughtful throughout the process -remember when we had those big storms in Nov /Dec - they made sure that even tho the yard was a muddy mess, we had clear access to the house. In the end, we're very very happy, and I would whole-heartedly recommend Keith Willig. Our new landscaping is not only beautiful, its 10X more usable! Keith & co were able to unlock parts of the property that we didn't even think about, and make them great.
Nicole Fox Landscape Architecture

I recently had the pleasure of working with Nicole Fox Landscape Architecture for a major landscaping project at my home in San Mateo, CA. The project budget was over $200,000 and involved the design and construction of a new deck, paver patio, landscaping, lighting, irrigation, and fencing. Being a construction professional myself, who routinely manages projects from conceptual design through completion, I had high expectations for the design team and contractor selected for the project. From our first meeting, Nicki did an excellent job at helping us identify and communicate the goals of the project. Thoughtful questions during the conceptual design phase produced a great dialogue between us, allowing for a collaborative experience where we could explore many design options. I was very precise in how I wanted our new deck to function. From the construction of the railing system, to the placement of the support posts, I wanted it to be perfect. Nicki was very patient and created multiple space plan options, allowing us to fine tune our design and arrive at the ideal configuration. Not only did Nicki collaborate well with me and my wife, she was also very open to the ideas of our contractor. She took the time to appreciate the opinions of others and provide feedback that allowed for great teamwork throughout the project. The detail of her construction documents were essential to the contractor’s bid and minimized any surprises encountered during construction. Nicki far exceeded all of my expectations. I would highly recommend Nicki for future projects and am grateful she was able to help us create an amazing landscape.
The Garden Route Company

The design/build team at Garden Route are impressive. Rich and Sandy's designs are contemporary and liveable, and always striking and interesting. The designs are enhanced by an environmental consciousness regarding the use of water and the use of plants such as native plants and grasses that do not require regular maintenance and a chemical regime to sustain. They have an outstanding knowledge of useful and innovative materials for their designs. They create conceptually interesting gardens where the complexity and thought that goes into the design and construction supports eminently liveable spaces.

Gigi provided me with a complete landscape design , displaying all the flowers and trees that we discussed and where they were being placed. She ordered all the plants and materials from the nursery. She introduced me to the the gardner that she works with, who did all the sprinklers, irrigation,new lawn and the planting. She was there when delivery was made and did an inventory of all the plants. Gigi oversaw the project till the very end and updated me on any time changes. As far as customer satisfaction, she was superb and I felt that I could call her or email her at any time. Lastly, she gave me an estimate in the very beginning, and stuck to it throughout the project unless I made any changes. I would highly recommend her landscape design company to anyone.
