Alida is a pleasure to work with! She took our suggestions and requests and interpreted them into the most stunning garden. Her knowledge of plants is formidable. We love her sense of color and texture, which created a garden of such beauty. The eye is always finding delightful new spots to land on. Alida is also very professional - wrangling both us and our landscape installers and other contractors when necessary to keep the project moving. She’s also very good at working within the budget and coming up with creative solutions for what could have been costly problems. She managed to keep everything moving at an accelerated pace as we were hosting a huge party and needed everything to look top notch. We receive so many compliments on the garden and it couldn’t suit us or our home better. We would certainly hire Alida again.

In reviewing my relationship with The Aldrich Company I was extremely pleased to have helped my client choose Alida and her crew. Alida was able to bring exactly the right feeling to this beautiful oceanfront property. Her plant selection and professional presentation were appreciated and made my job as the designer much easier. I highly recommend This very talented team of professional landscapers!

Alida is a thoughtful and creative designer. The landscapes designed by The Aldrich Company range from bold and modern, to soft and whimsical. Alida's style is timeless, and she manages to couple this with the client's particular style and landscape. I worked with Alida as a consultant, and every garden I saw of hers was breathtaking, and whats more, looks like it was meant to be there all along.

Working with Alida and the Aldrich Company was delightful, from initial concepts through installation. Alida is thoughtful, creative, and has a wonderful eye for seeing the potential of a space. I especially appreciated how she would ask about our preferences -- formal or casual, open or secluded spaces? She has an ability to help you see things from an artistic perspective AND a practical one, resulting in spaces that are both beautiful and useable. I cannot recommend her enough!

As a landscape contractor we've been implementing landscape designs by The Aldrich Co since I first met Alida in 2012 on projects ranging anywhere from $5,000- $500,000. Whether the job is big or small, the attention to detail and thoughtfulness that goes into every project is outstanding! From the beginning stages of planning preliminary budgets to simple punch lists, conceptual drawings or a full set of plans, in process Alida has made herself available every step of the way with fantastic client/contractor communication and facilitation to meet everyone's timely goals! We look forward to the next couple projects scheduled for early 2017 with the Aldrich Co. Best regards, Wyatt Talley Talley Landscape Inc.

Alida is a wonderful landscape designer. She has great vision and an excellent knowledge of plants. My wife and I found her a great partner is our efforts to transform an unused space with great views and maximize it to it's fullest. We couldn't be happier with the results.

Alida was great to work with and extremely attentive to all my concerns and thoughts. Her design expertise and execution resulted in a beautifully landscaped property that turned out better that we imagined. Easy to work with, prompt in getting the job done and attention to detail. Alida was thoughtful in plant selection and making the new blend in beautifully with the existing. Great Job!!

I have consulted with Aldrich on several occasions with both design and implementation assignments, and all were executed on budget and on time with unusual imagination. Without question, I would recommend her design skills to anyone with urban sites that require a deep knowledge of appropriate plantings, plus an overall installation concept that uniquely fits the terrain under development.

Alida Aldrich took my ideas and criteria and transformed them into something more beautiful than I could have imagined. Alida was very respectful and conscientious about the budget. She met deadlines and kept me informed via email with pictures and comments throughout the entire project. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Alida and am delighted with the results. I can recommend her without reservation.”

I recently hired the Aldrich Company to completely overhaul all the landscaping at my new home and couldn't be happier with both the process as well as the outcome. Alida Aldrich brought her great design aesthetic and eye for detail to every aspect of the job here, was on time, on budget, flexible and knowledgable, deeply involved in plant selection--she met the plant truck every time it arrived and inspected every single plant before it went in. This was a large job with water issues, working with neighbors, drainage problems and time constraints and Alida put together a team and made it all happen here stress-free. My Master Bedroom garden is now drought tolerant and looks like the The Cotswolds, while her pool garden design is a little bit Regency style -- very elegant and almost no maintenance. I highly recommend Alida and The Aldrich Company without reservation.

Alida Aldrich is the best! We just finished a complete re-design of our outdoor space and could not be more pleased with the outcome. Alida has a beautiful design aesthetic, an uncompromising attention to detail and a complete knowledge of plants and landscaping. She was professional, communicative and always available to discuss even the smallest details. Alida helped us to create a completely new living space for our home that is functional and has already become our favorite place to gather. I would highly recommend The Aldrich Company.

Alida has been our landscape designer for a number of years. She was described to us as someone who would “approach our project as if it were her own home.” Alida is a great partner with a very professional approach to the process. Using our goals and budget as a guide, she developed an original and distinctive vision for our yard. She designed areas in ways that we could not have imagined and we couldn’t be happier with the work. It has been three years since she completed our front and side yards and we love it as much today as we did back when it was first completed. We spend a portion of almost every evening outside in our Alida designed “Rose Garden.” We have engaged Alida to help us with Phase Two which includes a swimming pool, landscaping and an outdoor kitchen.
