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

I'm very pleased with the great work and support I continually receive from Metro GreenScape. Their staff is responsive, courteous and top notch. The design they did for our hard scape/backyard remodel was literally award winning and came in at budget and on time. They continue with followup to ensure every element was to our satisfaction and have been a pleasure to work with.
