  • "Our steep hillside property has been a challenge to us for years. We had nearly given up, then came everGREEN. From day one, we felt we had a knowledgeable, creative, and pleasant partner, and Leland patiently helped us realize garden possibilities that now include fruit orchards, raised decks, a spa and dipping pool, and terraced “rooms” with views. everGREEN balanced the needs of our kids for movement and activity within the natural spaces and managed the technical complications of drainage and irrigation. As we moved forward with constructing our final design, we had peace-of-mind knowing that we made all our big design decisions and changes on paper so we wouldn't be hit with costly rework. Thank you Leland, for all the extra sketches to help us visualize the possibilities!" Win and Melissa Banning

  • "It is rare to find a professional like Leland who is creative and also knows incredible detail about ‘what works and what does not'. Beyond being an expert in his field, Leland is one of the most personable and “down to earth” people that I know. I trust him and he represents more than just another professional… he is someone I would trust my family with… he is a great person. He is always coming up with fresh ideas… and based on his experience, his new ideas actually work and perform to specifications." Dr. Eric Woodroof
