We joined design professionals around the country and created a profile on Houzz.com. If you’ve not visited the site – we recommend it. It’s a great spot to find ideas and inspiration if you’re planning projects that involve design and construction.
Some of our clients have been gracious enough to review our work and relationship, and I’d like to share a few here. (This is the direct link to Houzz.)
Project Date: April 2003
Project Price Range: $50,000-$100,000
Richard created a beautiful natural woodland garden (100′ x 40′) that spans across the front of our property. The entire process from plant material selection, design, installation and completion was very well orchestrated. The plant material was mature, healthy and the landscape company that Richard works with are excellent. All aspects of the job installation were thorough, clean and professional.This past fall Richard implemented a redo of the landscaping going around the perimeter our home. Again, Richard stays on top of the job and we are pleased with the results.
Project Date: June 2010
Project Price Range: more than $100,000
After seeing a published project Stewart Hass & Associates designed in the Detroit area I called to have Richard make sense of the three acres surrounding our freshly-built home farther up north. I was expecting something great, but he exceeded every expectation in both the design and execution on what ended up growing to be a fairly large project. He brought on a very talented team to build retaining walls, hardscapes, a custom gunite pool and spa, a complete outdoor kitchen, pergolas, heated walkways and extensive landscaping and garden beds. He managed every single step of the installation – it was a common sight to see Richard on the property with a shovel or laser level, ensuring every detail was executed perfectly. It was a pleasure working with him; so much so that when we built our vacation home there was no question who would be responsible for the property. We are looking forward to another great project with him.
Project Date: May 1998
Richard has worked on three different projects for us over almost a 20 year period. He is thoughtful, thorough and knowledgeable of the plant material that is available and suited to the design. His designs have reflected the character of the site and building. When a project is underway he is always ready to make sure the installation is going well. I have seen him standing on a wall in the rain to make sure the trees were being planted correctly…high praise from us.
I’ve been honored to work with some amazing clients over these past 15 years in business. It’s my joy to see designs come to fruition at construction, but most importantly to watch them grow and thrive for years to come. Enjoy!
