"A TOTAL SUCCESS. Impressive design, excellent implementation, and completely satisfactory long-term maintenance. And to top it all off, this was all very personalized and super friendly.”


"I have only accolades of praise for the landscape and hardscape jobs Robert Boyd (and the team of workers from The Greener Side) designed and delivered on my front and back yards in less than 2 1/2 months. … The daily attention to detail (literally, daily) from Robert and the workers was both gratifying and humbling as they diligently, carefully, kindly and always with smiles on their faces approached each day's task. I am a very satisfied, happy client and highly recommend The Greener Side.”
