So.....I just went into my beautiful backyard to place some pumpkins for the season and I thought....WOW, how amazing is this yard.....I think I should share with others how beautiful it is and how proud I am that is is all mine!!! Let me start by saying....I didnt spend $150K on my yard BUT I did save for months in order to use AJ's Landscaping, and the money that I did spend was BEYOND WORTH IT!!! I could not image a more beautiful space nor could I imagine more talent in designing it!!! I have to admit, once logging on, I was a bit taken back by the negative comments place here but quickly remember, you simply cannot make EVERYONE HAPPY! If we could all achieve a beautiful backyard design on our own, why in the world would we even have to reach out to someone like AJ? I have a simple answer.....WE CANT!!!! If this process was all that easy and simple.....we would all be going to HOUSTON GARDEN CENTER (NO OFFENSE TO THEM) and planting our own plants in some sort of configuration......blah!!! I have to admire AJ, his staff (Keith, thank you for all your hard work and for dealing with my Husband and I throughout the entire process when we didnt know what in the heck we wanted), and his crews and foreman who have to, day in and day out, deal with crazies such as us!! I own a business myself and realize what an effort it takes to be truly gifted at what do you do (AJ, I am speaking to you) and balance all the people who expect too much, too soon! A beautiful, well designed, functional, outdoor living space takes talent, time, and tenacity that is found through using AJ's Landscaping & Design...... I mean REALLY???? Great Job to AJ and all his staff!!!!!!! Hopefully I will save quicky in order to do my River House soon!!! Cant wait!!!!
