Over the past few years I have had the opportunity to work with them on different projects. The jobs have always been done on time and on budget! As important as that is, what sets them apart from others is their innovative thinking and attention to detail. I would totally recommend them!!!Read More

Greenhaven put together our landscape plan that is true to the character of our midcentury home while being sensitive to our budget and long term goals we have for our property. Jen was great in providing us with detailed options for a recent project in which Greenhaven installed a gravel patio in our backyard. Everything was completed on time (actually earlier than promised) and looks great. We are looking forward to the coming months and years enjoying our new outdoor space!Read More

Relationship: Client

From the first phone call we made to GreenHaven, we knew this would be a company that we can fully trust. We engaged Greenhaven for a major upgrade of the landscaping for our entire property. The results of the project absolutely confirmed why we wanted to work with Jen, David, Jaime, and their staff. They listened carefully to what we wanted, and are the most efficient and hard working people we know. The project started with a design proposal that fully met our expectations. We then received timely and regular updates from Greenhaven during the implementation of the project, which enabled us to follow the progress very closely. The results are amazing, and we would work with Greenhaven again should we have another major project in the future. We are delighted to have Greenhaven doing weekly maintenance of the newly landscaped property now, which is consistently impeccable, as well as beautiful seasonal planter designsRead More

Relationship: Client

David & Jennifer have been doing work for me for close to 10 years and I've always been extremely pleased with the quality of their work. Jennifer's recent design and planting work at our house went just as planned, on time and on budget. What more can you ask for? Their on site employees are always meticulous, and in the rare instances when there is any kind of issue, they always immediately rectify the situation without hesitation. There are a lot of landscaping services available, and some might be less expensive, but if you want high quality design and execution of your landscape plan by true professionals, I cannot recommend anyone more highly than Greenhaven.Read More
