Mitchell Residence

Ms. Mitchell asked us to design and install an updated, cozy space for outdoor entertaining and relaxing.  We removed her old concrete patio and installed a new mortared full-color Pennsylvania flagstone patio with a curved Mexican pebble inlay as an additional design element.  A custom contemporary Brazilian ipe bench was installed, and we finished her space by installing a low-maintenance, full-season interest garden with an uplit Japanese maple tree as its anchor.

What impressed me most was “how well you listened from the first meeting to the end of the project.  And how well you incorporated thoughts and ideas; and also follow-up was great.  Also you showed great creativity in design and execution.  You were also very flexible – changes in design, moving the pebble path a few inches, substituting plant selection.  Every day cleanup was very thorough.  Anyone entering the house was always careful to remove their shoes.  Everyone was very professional and ensured complete satisfaction.  I know I ask a lot of questions and each one was met with patience and answered completely.  You were superior from the first meeting in terms of listening and creative design.  I felt very comfortable with Janet and trusted her with my project.  You made the process enjoyable.  Thank you so much for my gorgeous patio.  It’s played to oohs and ahs from my friends and family.  My sister can’t wait for the spring to have dinner in “your new courtyard.”  I would recommend without hesitation!”
