Dear Toni,


I just finished having my morning coffee in my garden and I wanted to send you a note to tell you how happy we are with the front yard. It's been a year since the planting and how it looks now is beyond what we ever expected. Originally, I couldn't visualize what you had in mind but I am so happy that I just trusted you to do all of the plant choices and design and the drip irrigation. I thought having so many different types of plants would look busy, but the variety is what really gives the yard its character. All of the plants have grown in so beautifully that all I have to do for maintenance is light pruning to keep them shaped. There are always a few plants rotating into bloom and it is so peaceful sitting and watching the butterflies and birds. We could never have done this on our own. The weeding has been a breeze since hardly any weeds get through the material you put down. We have also gotten to know many of our neighbors and the regular walkers going by our house. They also like to see how the different plants are blooming and keep track of how the yard is maturing.


You should drop off some extra business cards next time you are in the area so I can hand them out to interested parties!


It has been a pleasure working with you from the first day.


Thanks also for your trimming tips. I am getting bolder the more I practice.

Hi Toni:


Bev and I want to thank you (and your crew) for your extraordinary efforts in creating our "new" front yard, one worthy of House and Garden magazine. Not only did we appreciate your professionalism, skill and reliability, but  we also felt as though you had a truly vested personal interest in us and in the project. Our past experiences with independent contractors had been spotty at best; but you outshone them all. If an unforeseen problem arose, you took it upon yourself to take care of it immediately....all the while communicating regularly with us about what you weredoing and why.


And...of course, we are delighted with the end result of all the hard work put in by

you and your great crew. We also feel that your pricing was fair and competitive.


In summary, we want you to know that we will not hesitate to recommend you and your

services to our friends and neighbors.


With our sincere appreciation and good wishes,


Bill and Beverly
