Fred helped me solve a difficult problem. I happily recommend him as a design consultant.
In our case, your advice and solutions were accurate, efficient, effective, and ultimately saved us THOUSANDS of dollars.
We had three other landscape companies come to our house for free. Their ideas were useless and really only thinly veiled sales pitches. Fred gave us several useful and effective ideas, a couple of which we did ourselves the very next weekend with great results.
It’s a great read, concise, simple and it has a sense of humor. I’m going through the design section for the second time now, it’s very helpful.
The backyard landscaping the prior owners had done on the Lava RIdges home I purchased was so atrocious, I had no idea where to start. I had a lovely outcropping of lava rocks for a view. The problems lay between my home and the rock. What does one do with a rectangular patch of road fill in one’s yard and a round circle with perched rocks in the middle of one’s lawn? After discussing what I wanted, Fred helped me “see” what my landscape could be, and Sarah helped me turn it into a lush oasis. I couldn’t be prouder of my little patch of paradise, and proudly show it off whenever I can.
This book is an excellent resource for anyone designing a High Desert garden.
Our landscape was transformed from piles of rocks on a gill to a number of usable spaces that flow together like they have been there for years.
