Gay and Travis were great to work with! We were pretty "picky" clients, having had 3 or 4 different architects come to the house and pitch their "vision" for our backyard remodel project. Without exception, the prospective candidates could

I recently worked with Gay and Travis to landscape my front yard and had such a great experience and love the results. I would highly recommend Best Tex Gardens to everyone - they do great work, really care about what they do, and are great people to work with.\r\n\r\nI met with Gay to talk about the design. She started by asking me questions about what I liked, didn't like, what I wanted out of the yard, and asked me to give her pictures of designs I liked. After about 10 minutes of talking, she summarized my style and what I was looking for exactly. I couldn't have said what I wanted, but as soon as she said it, I realized that was exactly what I wanted. From there she started her creative process and started talking about ideas for the design - and it was better than anything I could have imagined. I had a yard with a slope that made it difficult to grow anything. Gay came up with a solution that not only fixed the problem but used the slope to add a feature to the yard. Gay is great in that she is able to take your input and then use it to create the design you wanted but didn't know how to do on your own.\r\n\r\nGay and Travis then took that design and implemented it - perfectly! I've worked with other contractors where I felt like I had to manage them or the process - not the case with Best Tex Gardens. I felt like I could completely trust them to take care of everything - and they did. The communicated the plans up front and then did what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it.\r\n\r\nIt has been about a month since the yard was completed and the plants are doing great and I have had so many compliments from neighbors on the yard. Eveeyone who walks by comments on how great it looks.\r\n\r\nI've got a backyard I plan to do down the road and will definitely be asking Gay and Travis to help with it - and can't wait to see what Gay will come up with.\r\n\r\nI love my yard - it makes me smile every time I pull up to the house. I also really appreciated how professional Gay and Travis were, how easy they were to work with, and what nice people they were to work with.

Working with Gay was a wonderful experience. We recently moved to a new home with a lot of natural rock ground surfaces and rugged landscaping in the back. I fully expected someone to come in and recommend putting down sod and planting new grass over everything (expensive). Instead, Gay started by asking me what we wanted out of the space and what we liked. Then we tried to brainstorm ideas that would work with our budget. She suggested ways to work with the natural surroundings. We ended up with wonderful ideas I never would have thought of (putting a firepit and natural rock seating in an area where the ground was natural stone -- with ground cover, creating a border for a flower bed of trees and using it as a separation between a natural grassy area and the rocky area, and in a third area of sloped landscape at the very back of our property, we planted wildflowers and bluebonnets!) -- I am so excited to see how the yard and new direction matures. She really knows which plants should go where as well. I was very pleased with her creativity and attention to my desires. And she made me feel at ease when my knowledge was clearly lacking in certain areas. She's a great teacher.

I called Gay in at the 11th hour to put together a beautification plan for my yard in preparation for my parents' 50 Anniversary celebration and renewal of vows. I had a limited budget and a limited amount of time to accomplish it. Gay had an ability to clearly build on what was already present and give clear suggestions and ideas on what COULD be done in an immediate and cumulative plan. She took a difficult project and knocked it out of the park for us. We had a beautiful outdoor celebration that will last in our memories for years to come. She went above and beyond. I would recommend her for any landscaping project. She's knowledgeable and a visionary.

12-6-10\r\nGay did an outstanding job of assessing our landscape and her recommendations were right on target with our goal of low maintainace and low water usage. \r\n\r\nShe worked with our existing plantings and designed the beds so that they would be pleasing year around. Gay was great to work within our budget and had suggestions for acquiring plants at reasonalble prices. \r\n\r\nWe have had a full season and the beds in front have given me color all year even in August. She has came back several times to help with specific issues such as triming which has been great. Highly recommend for the do it yourselfer or not . jnold

Everything about this landscaping experience was great. I didn't really know exactly what I wanted. I just knew I wanted my sparse yard filled in with native, drought tolerant plants. Gay came up with a beautiful, creative design that suits the space perfectly. The job was done sooner than I expected and came in under my budget. I was so pleased that I asked her to do my daughter's front yard which was truly a desperate landscape. It too, is now beautiful.

It was such a pleasure working with Gay to redo my flower beds. She really has an eye for making your yard look its best. She made my messy and unmanageable flower beds look like something out of a magazine. I would highly recommend her to anyone and she is one of the nicest people you could meet. Also, I believe her fee was very reasonable.

I can't even describe how much better our front yard looks. We needed to sell our home and had spent tons of time, money and effort making the interior look good, but the landscaping still left a lot to be desired. It was so bad, I was afraid that people would overlook our house simply because they had ""judged a book by its cover"" and never even go in and see it. I met Gay at a Realtor event (did I mention I am a Realtor so I KNOW how important curb appeal is) and asked her to come out to the house and see if could do anything to our sad little yard. She met with me and we talked about what would really make it look great and how to make that happen with our tiny budget. She was so creative and figured out great ways to use what I already had on hand to save money and the difference was AMAZING! I had several neighbors call and ask for her info and I have successully referred her to many clients and friends already. I will use her again on my new house and would recommend her to anyone.

Best Tex offers a consulting service for those of us that have some skill and available resources but are short on cash. Following Ms. Grays helpful guidance I was able to complete a major change to my homes appearance for roughly 20% of the cost if done as a full service. Her patience and quick recognition of what excites the customer results in a very pleasant experience with astounding results. Call Her!

Gay definitely has an eye for layout and color. Unlike many landscape companies, she takes the time to prepare the area, plan for seasonal color, and anticipate what the future plant growth will bring. Shes a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!

It included new plantings, lawn, hardscaping, outdoor kitchen, outdoor theater, pergola and trellis, lighting, etc. 3 years after the project was completed, the yard continues to bless us and we are still getting compliments!
