"When we purchased our 30-year-old home with its neglected and uninspiring landscaping, we weren’t sure where to start to improve things. Various landscape designers we consulted recommended extensive re-do of the hardscape and plantings with installation of irrigation throughout the property, all of which were far beyond our budget. Then we met Phyllis Tampio of Garden Artistry. We knew immediately that we could work with Phyllis.
She brought a practical, knowledgeable, and collaborative approach to her design work. She listened carefully to our needs and desires; she helped educate us about desert plants; and she willingly re-worked the plan as we provided feedback on her suggestions. Phyllis has excellent communication skills and kept us informed at every step of the planning and installation process. She didn’t just develop a written and pictorial plan for our landscape; she was present for the entire installation to make sure it was done right. And she has maintained contact after completion to monitor the health of the new plants and to make suggestions for additional affordable enhancements to our outdoor living space. We are absolutely thrilled with the results of Phyllis’s design genius. Our home’s yard is now admired by neighbors and we are proud to be a model for others to imitate. "
