Bernardo, the garden is absolutely wonderful — I love everything about it, and honestly think it’s one of the most beautiful gardens I’ve seen anywhere. The use of space is masterful, the change in levels makes it feel so much bigger, and there are so many fine places to hang out. The variation in texture and color and mood is amazing in such a small space, and it’s a pleasure to garden in. We’re very grateful to you for your beautiful design, careful execution and attention to details. So, thank you.
My garden fills me with delight. I knew when I saw Bernardo’s website that we shared an aesthetic that would translate well into my future garden. His unique contemporary vision incorporating steel, wood, succulents, urban farming in raised beds, and abundant fruit trees makes for a dynamic and sustainable garden that has become the envy of everyone who sees it.
"Garden design" is just the beginning. With his aesthetic and his Dream Team, Bernardo took what was once my "back patio" and turned it into another room of my house. No, it wasn't painful. No, it didn't take any longer or cost any more than he quoted. (Well, except for when I was so thrilled with what I saw that I expanded the project—twice). And YES. It was a delight to work with people who never missed their marks.
Thanks to Bernardo, our garden now is gorgeous and serene and gives us pleasure every single day. We removed almost everything from the old yard and started from scratch. I was so impressed with how Bernardo walked into the garden and immediately saw through the mess and knew exactly how to make it beautiful. The new space is low maintenance, drought tolerant, and incredibly elegant.
It was such a pleasure to work with Bernardo and his team. Bernardo had a vision which he was able to articulate—but I admit the result was better than I imagined. I really love the combination of steel framed planters, large boulders, and native plants. My house and landscape work together and fit the local area so beautifully. Every day I see people who stop to look at the plants, many of whom ask me about the work, and I have made new friends through the beauty of my new gardens.
It's as if we added new rooms to our house. Our new yard is now full of color year-round, using a fraction of the water our old, thirsty yard once did. It was a relief to find a landscape designer with a solid command of both hardscape and plants. The crew is friendly and very good at what they do. It's clear that they have worked together for years.
