Rich and his crew have implemented an incredible transformation on a very disfuntional jobsite in Sea Cliff. His creative process takes in his many years of experience, but he still listens to the client, with regard to thier likes and dislikes. He is as good at hardscape as he is plants, and does railing, water features and accessory features. I will use him again on my future projects.
