Diane Tapp and the crew from Encore Landscaping turned my front yard into the prettiest front yard in the neighborhood. I have a lot of issues in my yard and I needed a lot of work done. First, they removed an old crumbling brick walk and replaced it with beautiful slate. They pulled out the old overgrown shrubs and planted a fabulous variety of plants – evergreens, grasses, flowering shrubs, and flowering plants. My front yard is a steep hill which is difficult to mow, so they planted the steepest slopes (street-facing and driveway-adjacent) with a great variety of shrubs. Best of all, they listened to me. I wanted different varieties of plants that weren’t already in the neighborhood, so it would look different. I wanted a landscape that I could maintain and that didn’t require gallons of water. Of course, when the plantings were all new (last summer) I had to water every day to make sure they got properly established. But so far this summer, I have not watered the new plants once, and they are doing beautifully! The crew showed up on time and worked really hard to get my front yard in shape. I highly recommend them and will use them again in the future. I need some trees in the front now!
