Review by a homeowner in San Mateo, CA
I'm surprised this company is still listed as a recommendation. The manager, Nancy does not have an active License, but hires moonlighters to do the work after hours and on weekends. She kept increasing the price above the original estimate. She was bossy with the workers, and screamed at the Mexican irrigation team that they didn't move fast enough, telling them to learn the language or go home. Even the neighbors were surprised at her actions and how rude she was. Not happy with the services and how she treated the workers. Didn't understand the layout of the yard and what plants need light and where to place them. Would not use her again!

My front yard looks so good. Every time I drive up to our house I think why didn't I do this years ago! It is such a difficult yard shape, being at the end of a court with shared front yard. I had always thought it was just too difficult and just did not do anything. I am so glad I called Nancy! I like your design - the stipia grasses are mesmerizing to watch. I love its' wave motion in the breezes. The rocks and big boulders look so good and the lighting (love my little "fairy lights" and tree lights) looks great at night. All the choices we made (with all of your input) were very good and the work was done in a timely fashion in spite of the winter weather. Everything is performing very well and I'm now waiting for the crepe myrtle to bloom. Your follow-up advice regarding irrigation and fertilizing helped a great deal, as I was not able at the time to keep track of it all. All our friends (and even the workmen) who have come to our house have been effusive about our front yard! Our friends say "Wow, what a difference, looks so much better!

Most of the job was done on evenings and week-ends which means the workers are doing this as a second job.... But the biggest issue I have is that we were charged much more than what we had agreed on. Our stamped concrete was not good and even the landscaper agreed but she did not do anything to improve it. After the project was done, she never followed up like she said she would do, some plants died almost right away. When she kept asking for more money, we tried checking her license, only to find out she has lost it. Our mistake, we should have checked before.

It was very pleasant working with Nancy Broadway. She was creative and we worked well together.We asked Nancy to help us on the final layout of the plants & she showed us the proper way to break the flagstone. Overall the project turned out fine and I would rehire her again. Also I learned about several new species I had not used in the past.

Review by in San Jose, CA
Our front yard was absolutely transformed from a flat ugly rectangle of brown crabgrass to something that is interesting, unique, and beautiful. The design is different yet blends well with the surroundings and low/ to no maintenance. We found Nancy to be extremely responsive, attentive and the project was completed in no time at all. Nancy uses nothing but the best quality of materials and was a constant presence throughout all aspects of this project. We loved her work so much we now have her working on a design for our backyard. Nancy is a pleasure to work with, extremly professional, very knowledgeable and generous of her time.

I was looking for a professional to come up with a plan including planting and irrigation details that would include a number of items I wanted in my backyard. With just a few meetings with Nancy she provided what I was looking for. It included the elements I wanted in a well thought out plan. The plan accomodated the long-term vision for an addition to the house with an interim solution for the area that will be affected.

I chose Nancy to work with because she had a much better handle on what I was looking for. She was exceptionally professional. We are still discussing design ideas, but I have told her that I would recommend her.
