Our Happy Clients

“A talented couple, a lovely young family and a great eco-friendly company.”

For a couple of years, I had been planning to put a rain garden into my front yard. I had a natural depressed area from a removed tree, I had taken classes and did some reading, but really had no ideal how or where to begin.  I also had a huge buckthorn problem and erosion. Basically, I was overwhelmed. Then, on our Neighborhood website, I discovered a notice from Alana and Joey. They were offering a consult and from that day on, magic happened.  Both are so friendly and easy to work with. They came up with a complete plan for all my needs and did all the work. They even offered to help with other projects that were not immediately tied to the initial plan. They guaranteed the work and the plants they provided.  I feel we have not only completed the project we set out to do, together, but have become friends in the process. A talented couple, a lovely young family and a great eco-friendly company. I cannot thank them enough for everything.

Alana and Joseph are a great team with a ton of knowledge – I saw what they built in Costa Rica and would recommend them to anyone with greens in their yard!”

They transformed the front of our home into a welcoming, beautiful place!

Joseph and Alana planned and redid the front of our house, patio and front yard over the summer and fall. They transformed the front of our home into a welcoming, beautiful place! One of the most special gardens they designed and brought to life was a memorial garden for my father who passed in 2017. It is filled with his favorite flowers – peonies, roses, chrysanthemums – and it is the first thing I see when looking out my front window. I cant wait to see it in the spring! One other special “thank you” to Joseph for tearing down our old mailbox –  which had been hit so many times by the snowplow that we lost count. It now has hinges and a spring on it if it does get hit, a solar light on top, and a reflector next to it.

The entire crew – every single member – made a tough job look easy, and made our house look lovely!  We could not be more pleased!
Thank you Joseph, Alana and everyone who is a part of Green Guilds! Looking forward to working with you again soon!
