Chris came recommended from a neighbor and lived up to and beyond the five star hype. I asked him to take over for my overworked DIY hubby to finish our backyard renovation with a pretty tight timeline. Honestly, our yard looked like a lumpy abandoned lot before he started work. I really couldn't even picture that my yard could look like his after photos, but it does! We moved forward with 90% of his recommendations and he took hubbies numerous add-ons in stride and still finished earlier than I expected. He is extremely professional and has the perfect balance of visionary, project manager and skilled landscape artist. We went with a minimalist overhaul without tree or shrub additions. When we are ready to add to the yard, he will definitely get our call.

We reached out to Chris to help us finish our backyard remodel. We are so happy we found him and that he was able to make the time to help us! We were at the final stage of our remodel, needing help with plant installation including a tree, full irrigation system, lawn, and leveling. Our prior landscaper that started the job was extremely difficult to work with, and it was so refreshing to have Chris come onto the job. Chris is very easy to talk to and work with, and he was there working alongside his guys the entire job. This is really not common, as often the project manager is there only in the morning and then takes off. Chris always communicated what was planned for each day and who would be there. He listened to our questions and offered suggestions on how we might want to improve on our design, such as by adding a lawn border. He is knowledgeable and cares about the quality of his work and really took the time to make sure everything was right. He was a week late starting the job, but I really think this is pretty normal with the how high demand is for landscaping work. His prices are fair, his crew is great, and we would absolutely work with again. Thank you Ralston Landscaping!

Big thanks to Ralston Landscaping for doing an excellent job on our front yard renovation. Chris does what he says he's going to do and beyond. He is a genuine person, pays attention to detail, and completed our job on schedule. Unfortunately we had already remodeled our back yard or we would have hired him to do that too.
