“James has a great eye and a vision of where to place things when it comes to landscape design. His selection of plants was wonderful and he was quick to suggest alternative tropical palms that are cold hardy. We tried using someone else the first year and had 12-15’ Mexican Fan Palms that were hit by the freeze. He gave us a better choice so we still have the same beachy tropical feel we were used to in Florida. He also showed us how to take care of the plants once they were installed in our yard.

James is personable and reliable, too. I have felt welcome to follow up with him when I needed help. James has also developed a solid professional relationship with his subcontractors, which works well for me. If I need better irrigation in a certain area, he can call and get it resolved right away.

It’s like an exotic tropical paradise now!”

“Sierra Outdoor Living’s customer service was great. James was very responsive to our requests. He was very detailed in explaining the process day by day and thoroughly answered questions we had throughout each project. If it seemed like we couldn’t afford everything we wanted, he would work with us to modify plans so that we still got everything we wanted built or installed. The end result was great and we love it. We’ve hired him multiple times and he always works within our budget. My yard is beautiful and I would definitely hire him again.”

“He did what he said he would do and was ideal with project management. He was good at envisioning the stonework and what it would look like once it was completed. That’s his background.

He made us feel like he was very trustworthy. We’re not quite done yet, but we’re fans!”

“I can’t say enough about Sierra Outdoor Living. They provided us with a 5-star experience from start to finish. They always used top quality materials and communication was constant. All the projects completed, such as the plants, lighting, irrigation were completed on time and in budget. The workers were very respectful of our neighbors and didn’t start too early in the day. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.”
