Our goal was to create a 1/2 acre of minimum maintenance. Mike Doyle was extremely attentive from beginning of the design through implementation. His right hand man at the time, Steve Smith, would show up to rework the sprinkling system he installed at all hours, whenever it was required. The system was unique in that it required a pump to maintain water pressure. But Steve figured it out. Mike picked plants and ground covering that needed little attention over the years, whereby most of the original flora existed 15 years later. 5 stars!
