What our clients are saying...
It was such a great pleasure working with Shalae and Io LandArch on not only one, but two EM:HE builds! She was able to listen, and hear, our needs as the client, quickly turn around a clear, cohesive plan, and execute that plan and vision during the install of the landscape. The final landscaping product truly complimented the architecture of the house and successfully blended traditional garden motifs with contemporary styling and modern amenities.
Io worked with me over the course of a winter to develop the ideas I had for my yard and the vision I had for living in it. They added artistic and historical elements that are appropriate for the style and time period of my house. I appreciated their monitoring of the installation process so that the end product was as successful as the exciting plans suggested it would be. I am really happy with the results.
I wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you to you and your team. Our yard is exploding with plant growth, all the grasses and sages are so happy. Zack, who wanted to sell the house before because he hated the maintenance now loves sitting in his little private grass zone and watching the bees. This yard is already bringing us so much happiness ❤️🌱
