We began working on our new home's landscaping plan mid 2008 with Wendy King. It was an ambitious project, set for three stages, on 2.75 acres to be completed over several years.
Wendy created an overall design for the lot; covering the front entry, a wooded area, screening the closest home to us, an outdoor kitchen and bar, a six hole putting green/play area, the pool and deck, a hot tube area, the sunken citrus grove, Cathy's private garden, and preserving the remaining natural desert landscape. Wendy suggested exceptional people to work on this project; the landscaping company, iron working and fencing company, several nurseries for plants and trees, a couple of rock/boulder suppliers, a pool company and the artificial green installer, to name a few. The original three stages became one long stage, because my wife and I had to see the final design now, not over time. Throughout the project, Wendy was open to modification of the design plan as the house changed and some areas expanded and others shrunk.
The citrus garden in the dog run was a wonderful after-thought which Wendy put together in a couple of days. It was a joy to work with this intelligent, creative woman for the last three years. She is delightful and fun to work with, we would highly recommend her for any size landscape project.
