Client Experience with Taylor

"I recently hired Applewood for a backyard renovation and am thrilled with the final result! I had a good feeling about Applewood from the very first phone call when I spoke to Taylor, the landscape designer. I originally needed only landscape plans since I had a contractor in mind to do the installation. Taylor came over a few days later and listened to what I desired and offered excellent suggestions. He quickly got to work on creating a gorgeous rendering of my vision. I was so impressed that I requested a quote from Tigran to consider hiring Applewood for the construction portion. Tigran soon provided a detailed quote and I felt confident that Applewood would deliver. I decided that having access to Taylor was a huge bonus because he was able to answer my many design questions along the way. The crew was on time every day, worked quickly and professionally, followed Taylor's detailed design and made small tweaks that I requested. Throughout the project, as I needed Taylor's input, he was readily available and was a dream to work with. If you are looking for a design and build project, Applewood is the one for the job!"
