You will meet with the owner Dave Ryden, who has a BA in Landscape Design and 40 years of residential experience. He will be your estimator, designer and project manager and your partner in having an enjoyable and worry free experience landscaping your home. He thinks from the big picture, i.e. how could this concrete patio I'm providing maybe pose later problems for any future plantings, lighting, drainage, sprinkler access, etc. He is noted for listening well, providing the desired proposal and then delivering. He doesn't change prices once the contract is awarded unless work is added by the customer (which incidentially does occur in 75% of our jobs once people see us work). We will start and finish the project when we say. Much detail is considered before the bid is offered so there are a limited number of surprises once work starts. We are a small company and typically 1-2 jobs a day and we are there everyday once the jobs starts. We do not do gardening so we don't occasionally disappear to do our 'route'. We do almost all work with our own employees so full control of the job progress is in the our hands and not tied in with some subcontractors problems. The most skilled of processes (ie stamping concrete or fine carpentry) are done by highly skilled technicians employed as a one day occasion. This allows us to keep our operation costs low and the quality high. We do jobs from $300 and up to $150K. We are knowledeable about the latest advances in sprinkler nozzle design, low water planting and water conserving designs. 6 Employees. No Subs Used. Cost Is Determined By The Job....

We were pleased because we felt 'listened' to. Our ideas were improved on, and new ideas were offered.

Consult only for our front yard. We received a beautiful design (on the spot!), and many ideas that would work well for us.

Dave came up with some awesome ideas. Not just with the landscape design, but also adding outdoor rugs, pots, etc. We also utilized him to provide us with contractors to complete the work. All the vendors he recommended were great. Our job was completed ahead of schedule!

They performed the job on time, as agreed and cleaned up after themselves so I couldn't tell they were ever there except for the new drains.

An hour later I called Acacia and left a message on the answering machine. Within a f...

Service Provider Response

Based on what the you said at the time, I assumed that you had accepted my sincere apology and explanation for missing the appointment, but judging from the grades, I wonder what was really going on. You had very strong opinions about the work and insisted that the drainage be performed your way. As a contractor with close to 40 yrs. of drainage experience, I'm always responsible for the effective...


Dave is awesome! He has a vision and knows how to carry it out. I had to trust him a lot because I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted, except I didn't want grass! The end result is really pretty. His workers were always on time and cleaned up each night. Sometimes Dave was a little forgetful in things we discussed, but he always came through. His prices are rather high, but he has great expertise. ...
