I thought I was going to a wine dinner --- I got a great lesson in the power of story telling instead..

Darin and Heather are pros as are their entire staff. They are super easy to work with and have tons of ideas as to how you can best accomplish your hard-scape goals. Their team listens to you and determines what you want to accomplish - a rarity in today's marketplace - and only then makes suggestions and offers solutions that are within your budget. As far as meeting schedule and budget, this is an area where I really have come to appreciate the quality and level of communication they provide. They work extra hard to keep their clients informed and always stay on top of letting clients know where they are and when things are going to happen. They have the highest level of integrity and have trained their staff to be responsive, courteous and helpful. On top of everything else, Metro GreenScape simply does beautiful work. Their portfolio is second to none and they come highly recommended.
