Landscaping the way you want it ....

Below is a sampling of some of the several reviews we have received from our clients.
After getting absurdly high quotes from arrogant St Helena and Up-Valley landscapers, and having one of Napa's largest landscape design companies quote me - give me a start date - and then never show up - my wife and I were just about to give up on the process of landscaping our Napa property.

Jim Van Winden was referred to me by a mutual friend of Jim's, and when he came over to talk to my wife and I, and heard our horror stories about our experiences with other landscape firms, he laughed and said it would never happen on his watch. He then gave me a huge list of satisfied customers, and every one of them raved about his work ethic and his eye for both creative and practical landscape design.

He designed a stone wall for the front of our house, and since then has landscaped every inch of our property. He always came in at or under budget, and he always completed his projects on time. He built out a custom deck for our side yard for half the cost others had quoted me, and installed a beautiful water feature that everyone compliments us on. Our landscaping is without any question one of the most beautiful in our neighborhood.

To add additional benefits to a list so long it would bore you, Jim has referred me to the best electrical contractor I've ever worked with - Myles Davis Electric - and I have had the same experience with Myles and his people.

Jim Van Winden is the only person I will ever refer to anyone in the Napa Valley for landscaping design or installations services, and the gap between the quality of his work and his sense of ethics and fair play in business literally dwarfs the nearest competitor.

I am sending this note to thank you for the service that you provided on my lawn installation. You and your employees did a real nice job on the lawn, edging and sprinklers. I appreciate the help that you gave me regarding the discount on the sod price and the good advice on the gopher mesh. What I really want to mention is the way that you do business. I have had dealings with a few other contractors while remodeling and adding on to the house and I must say that it is rare to work with a contractor who is as courteous and easy to communicate with as you have been. You showed up when you said you would, did a great job and handled my concerns quickly and with no complaints.

I also appreciate that you always respond to my messages quickly and thoroughly. That is something that I try to do in my job and it is amazing how surprised customers are and how much it means to them when you simply return a call.

Please let your employees know that I appreciate their good work. I can only imagine how much hard labor went into the grading and the lawn.

I will recommend you to anyone who asks and I will be calling again when I need more landscaping work.
