What impressed us with Rick and Phil was the artistic and natural flow of their design and work. They listened to our dreams and provided a "five year plan" which allowed us to budget. First it was the stream and pond, then the rock garden with 37 tons of boulders, then the lawn and extended irrigation system. When we debated on whether to add a Japanese or English themed garden, Rick drew up two plans (we chose the Japanese garden) and Phil carefully selected and installed rock slabs and boulders for Koi to hide under.

In addition to providing designs and planting guides so that we could maintain our gardens, Rick also helped provide experts to build special structures such as the Japanese gateways and fences, a hot tub pagoda, a deck and flagstone masonry. In all cases the contractors he provided had the same quality and artistic skills as his own team.

We are now at 12 years with Rick, Phil and the rest of the team. We're talking about an outdoor fireplace, and like the other projects, we know it will be outstanding in quality, look like it was meant to be there and are excited to work once again with Pacific Gardens.
