"Thank you, Bruce. Your work is beautiful! Much appreciated!!!" -Jim P., Bellingham, WA
"Bruce was great in every stage of my project, from design to implementation. He has a great feel for esthetics, both general and personal, and is sensitive to everything relative to personal taste. He’s also really fun to shop for plants with, full of suggestions that are lovely now and even better in the future. I highly recommend him and look forward to working with him again in the future." - Cheryl S., Bellingham, WA
