Ashley Farrell Landscape Design
Home Improvement Professionals in Santa Barbara
"Ashley Farrell was chosen for our landscape project out of a group of five landscapers that we interviewed. She was the most engaged in our project and her pricing was the fairest out of all of them. Her experience was also a very high factor in our consideration of landscapers. We knew going into this major project that it would be a long term job. We had an acre that had to be made beautiful. First, we had to have everything torn out. Then the hard scape had to done, all new patios, new driveway, retaining walls, remodeled pool etc. Ashley worked as our co-ordinator on everything for us and kept us all sane. Ashley was also the only landscaper that we interviewed that was also hands on. She was there everyday and worked as much or more, with her fabulous crew. Phase two is probably going to start in late winter when she transforms our lower lot into a beautiful 20' X 20' fruit and vegetable garden. All in all we were and are very pleased with Ashley."

Giffin & Crane General Contractors, Inc.
Home Improvement Professionals in Santa Barbara
"Giffin & Crane remodeled the exterior and interior of my 1340 sq. ft., 60 year old Santa Barbara Cottage. Although I had heard of G & C, it became quite clear that their reputation for the highest quality work preceded them. This became evident from day one as I witnessed the positive interaction of G&C employees and sub- contractors. While there certainly were less expensive options I trusted G&C's professionalism and expertise. They had realistic deadlines which they met. They made revisions as necessary, with my approval. I was advised on every step of the way and was never surprised by any budget revisions, particularly since I was the one that approved them. For example, I was not satisfied with the Kitchen as originally planned. G&C gave me several options with specific budgets and time lines to chose from, incorporating things that I had requested. I always felt that my opinion was respected and that in the end the decisions were ultimately mine. Together we created a labor of love and a little jewel that I cannot wait to come home to. In the end, it was evident that I was as important to them as someone else with a project four times the size."

Thompson Naylor Architects Inc
Home Improvement Professionals in Santa Barbara
"Dennis Thompson worked closely with us to design a new home on our land, after our house was destroyed by a wildfire. He was sensitive and cognizant of the emotional factors going into the design process, given our circumstances. Dennis took us through the entire process, from design concept through City approval, from choosing a contractor through managing on-site building issues. Ultimately, we ended up with a beautiful, energy efficient home."

"From design to implementation to maintenance, Landscapes by Davids is five star. Both Davids are a pleasure to work with and the gardeners are respectful, efficient, and great at what they do. We get the feeling they really care about how our property looks. I would have no problem recommending this company to family or friends and I have already done so several times."

Banyan Architects
Home Improvement Professionals in Santa Barbara
"Mr. Gradin helped us design two additions to our home. Both seamlessly integrate with the original design, but I was impressed with his creativity in seeing new ways to utilize space in an elegant and tasteful manner. He brought up important considerations and implications to our original self-designed plans that made it apparent that his expertise was saving us thousands of dollars and much wasted time (!). As well as being a creative designer sensitive to the project's location and specific needs, Mr. Gradin seems very knowledgeable about environmentally friendly materials, and I appreciate that he recommended products I didn't know about that were better for our world. In short, I'd highly recommend Mr. Gradin to anyone who wishes to have his considerable talent focused on developing abstract architectural ideas into an elegant and practical building."

Delicious Decors
Home Improvement Professionals in Santa Barbara
"We couldn't be more thrilled with Delicious Decors. They are so on the ball, artists and perfectionists yet able to stick to a budget and schedule. Fredrik from Delicious Decors built our entire bathroom and it is just magnificent - the tile work, glass block window, doors, fixtures - everything was carefully thought out and placed accordingly. He also did our hardwood floors, windows and helped with the design of each room - all with the same attention to detail. We can't wait to kick off the next project with them!"
