We just had a fantastic experience with Rusty Bourland and his company, Sweetwater Landscape and Projects. Our story is that my husband and I have tried in the past to deal with our front yard or, rather, dirt + weeds. We tried on our own, then we tried with two different individuals but not professionals. Long story short, back to dirt-weeds each time. Those days are over. Rusty knows a HUGE amount about plants in general as well as natives, grasses, soil (etc.) and also has a great eye for design. He spent lots of time talking to us (at no charge) about our options. His rates are very fair (lower than other bids) and he understands that some clients need to keep things low cost. About two weeks after putting everything in, that the crazy week of freezing weather came along. Rusty came by the house and told us what to do to try to save everything. Inevitably there were casualties. Although landscape company contracts include a “not responsible for acts of nature" clause, Rusty was incredibly generous with his time and resources to get us fixed up again. That’s because Rusty takes customer satisfaction seriously: he will go the extra mile to make sure you are happy with the results. Our front looks amazing! Oh, I should add that Sweetwater redid our crushed granite driveway and it looks like new.
