My husband and I had been interested in hiring a professional landscaper for awhile, so we were always very observant when walking our dog around our neighborhood at the different jobs finished by local landscapers. Two different yards in our neighborhood that had jobs completed this summer, REALLY stood out from the rest. We asked those neighbors for the professional landscaper responsible for the beautiful work done in their yard, and found out that Anil Gandhi of Vedic Gardens & Nursery completed both! We knew then, that we wanted to look this place up. I stopped by Vedic Gardens one afternoon to get some information. I immediately loved this nursery. It was my first visit, and I felt so comfortable just walking around, looking at many different beautiful and interesting plants, pictures of other landscaping projects completed, and checking out the happy little chickens. The owner, Anil walked over to me and introduced himself. He was seriously the nicest man. I told him that my husband and I had seen his work, and wanted him to help design and build some stone garden walls in our yard. He offered to come over to our house that evening after he closed his nursery, to get an idea of what we were looking to do, and give us honest suggestions of what would work best & look the nicest in our yard. My husband & I really enjoyed talking with Anil that evening. We could really see his passion for artistic landscaping and gardening. We felt that Anil was definitely an honest, hardworking man with good work ethic. We also felt that he sincerely cared about fair prices, and wants his clients to spend their money wisely. After spending this time with Anil out in our yard, we were confident that he was the person we wanted to give our money to-- to be in charge of our landscaping project. We went ahead and told him then, that we were hiring him! He was very helpful giving us the information we needed to get this process started (forms needed/neighbors signatures for HOA Approval). Once we were approved by our HOA, I set up a time for Anil to come over and measure, so that he could give us an accurate estimate for the job. He came by our house early one morning, confirmed the ideas for our garden walls and edging in our yard, and completed his measurements. He promptly sent an email to us the following day with the quotes. We stopped by to see him at his nursery the following weekend to pay half, and asked him to please get our job started soon. We knew he was busy with other jobs too, but wanted to tell him, that we would appreciate for them to start their work in our yard before our upcoming vacation. Anil and two of his awesome employees showed up early one morning that week and got started. Anil communicated the vision for our landscaping job very well to the two men working for him. They did excellent work each day, and kept the work area clean and neat. We let Anil know that we had complete trust in Vedic Gardens to finish designing and building our stone walls while we were away for our vacation. I must say that it was very nice and exciting to get back from our trip, and see that the job had been completed, and looked AMAZING! Everything was even better than we imagined. The stone walls were visibly built by professionals and the soil and mulch looked so neat and clean. We were very happy and pleased with how it all turned out! Within a couple days of being back in town from our vacation, my husband and I stopped by Vedic Gardens to pay the balance for the job. We also mentioned to Anil that we were starting to think about what types of plants and flowers would do well and look nice in our new plant beds. Anil gave us a couple of ideas, then kindly offered to stop by our house in a few weeks to offer his professional opinion on what to plant and when to plant it! We are looking forward to getting together with him about this soon. As we were leaving his nursery, I pointed out a flower pot that Anil had created, and asked him what kind of plant that was? I told him that it really looked like this beautiful flower I recently fell in love with while out in Colorado. He told me the name of the plant, and knew that the plant also grows out West, so it probably is the same flower. He told us more info. about the plant, and how it attracts bumble bees & butterflies. I then asked him if it would work well anywhere in our new garden beds...because I just love the flower! Without hesitation, Anil told me to just take the potted plant home and try it out! That made my day! I seriously hugged him, feeling so thankful that we even met him. We had bumble bees and butterflies visiting our beautiful yard the very next day! Anil is a GOOD PERSON, and extremely talented at gardening and being creative with landscaping projects!
