I signed up for the Armstrong landscaping service. I worked with Tony the head designer. When he came out he listened to me and then we sat in kitchen and looked at plants on his iPad. Tony showed me plants and we chose each, I was changing to succulent garden in the front of my home. My background is professional interior design and have definite design ideas, Tony listened and produced plans.
My front yard gets brutal morning sun and with drought looking to save water.
Tony gave me a quick plant list and prices for plants and labor. The first planting was in early July when the heat was 85. Two of the agave plants were roasted and I did not make it better by covering with plastic. As Tom at the Armstrong's explained I put it in microwave, so I offered to buy 2 more but he was gracious to offer replacements.
The second planting made everything right and I am very pleased with the changes. We water each day for 2 weeks and they are doing very well, well fighting back snails but I will win.
I have used Armstrong 2 times in the last 5 years and find them to be very professional and gave me good results. Tom the Manager of Armstrong Newport Beach has great taste in planters.
