Los Angeles, CA
I found Karen on this web site and feel very fortunate that I did. I have to say that this was the first time that I have ever hired anyone from a web site recommendation. I had trepidations about working with someone that had not been a personal referral - but Karen's warmth, knowledge and laptop presentation immediately put me at ease. Karen brought her artistic eye to my backyard project . The people that she chose to work on the job were all extremely professional. That being said , she is a tough taskmaster and expects punctuality and expert craftsmanship from the people she works with. She is a stickler for detail. She saw what I liked and enhanced my ideas. She had numerous resources for lighting, pots, plants and statuary that were completely new to me. We had fun rooting around all over Los Angeles! Karen completely renovated my backyard , a project my husband didn't think necessary, into a serene Asian retreat right down to two wonderful Buddhas, an Indian Archway, wonderful winding flagstone pathways and staircases, beautiful large Vietnamese pots and gorgeous tropical plants. I LOVE my backyard and so does my husband - - He just doesn't understand why she didn't come into our lives sooner.
