Prior to selecting WPL, I received several plans and quotes over the course of 3 years. Most had nice plans for the patio but non-creative ideas for our landscape/privacy issues. I found Nicole Buch to be a very good listener when it came to our needs to create privacy in our small corner lot. She was able to incorporate our favorite perennials and make recommendations for plants/trees. While the patio design was very simple, it was exactly what we wanted as clients. She did not try to up-sell me for things that I did not need. Next to a good design, I found the implementation of the project to be done very professionally. We had a few issues to work out but the Construction Manager and I worked through the unexpected problems. He made himself available and was very responsive. His crew worked diligently and cleaned up after they were done. We completed the backyard project over the course of two years. I hope to work with them again to complete the front and side yards.
