Three small ocotillos ($195) were refused as being greatly over-priced -- they were so very small that there was no need to pay anyone to plant them -- they could be done with a hand trowel. Two little apricot trees ($290) were also refused as being overpriced, and with careless bark damage. I had hoped to do a much larger project: trellises with grapes, raised garden, additional shrubs, along with some removal of dead material after the cold winter, etc. His verbal estimates of some of the work were so high, that I found other people to do it, did it myself, or postponed it. He was not eager to please the customer. I was prepared to spend a substantial sum if I had found a responsive and knowledgeable provider. I was disappointed. Mr. Korody may have been too busy to pay much attention to my project, I don't know. He seemed very professional when he first came to talk, but didn't follow through well. He seemed to have little knowledge of horticulture, and little feel for plant materials. His promotional photos featured hardscaping, but we didn't get that far in my project, so I can't speak to his skills in that area. If we had had a productive working relationship, cost alone would not have deterred me from continuing with him. I felt he was unresponsive, perhaps even dismissive, and I was concerned about his lack of interest and knowledge regarding plant materials. If he hasn't completed the Master Gardener program, I would recommend it to him. I hesitated to do this review for some time, but I think it only fair to others to get it done.I'd like to put in a good word for the two young men who were actually doing the work. They were hard-working, pleasant, and concerned with doing a good job.
