Dear Don,
I don't even know where to start. You have transformed our entire yard so wonderfully. I'm at a loss for words to describe the feeling I get inside, every time I walk around our house. The serenity and beauty you have created overwhelms my senses. Working with you and your crew has been such a wonderful pleasure. You're a great guy, and your men are wonderful to be around. I would recommend you any day.

It's so nice to see people that are really passionate about what they do, the results always turn out better. You and your men are the greatest construction crew we've ever seen. This was such a big complex job with so many changes, and you guys just kept going .
always showing up when you said you would, you never had any lame excuses. You and your men are the most patient and positive people to work with. We really could feel how much you all care. We couldn't be happier with the final results, But wanted to mainly compliment you on the pleasantness of the whole construction process.
With much respect, thank you,
Tim P.

My wife and I have the hardest time getting inside our house without someone complimenting us on how beautiful our landscape looks, and how it has improved the look of our entire neighborhood this has been going on for months , we just love coming home. The upkeep has been so easy because you installed everything so well.

The stone walland rock work you did for us is so incredible.
I can't barely get in my house without someone walking by complimenting me on it. Thank you so much for solving our indoor rustic looking Saltillo tile solution. Even the experienced guys couldn't figure it out. You're a true master.

Don ,
When We first purchased our house the landscape was the armpit of Palos Verde's. As you know we live on a very exclusive, expensive street. Our neighbors were so glad a new couple moved in. Obviously hoping we would fix up this neighborhood eyesore. As the old owners let it go so much. I remember asking around if anyone knew a good landscaper in this area. Oddly enough Your Landscape company came highly recommended by 4 totally different people. After talking with you only a few minutes , and seeing your portfolio I knew why. We paid a lot of money for our plan, and spent a lot of time with the architect. But your Ideas and advise made our landscape so much better than the original plan. Your patience ,experience, and knowledge is amazing. You seem like a landscaping encyclopedia ,and you have such an artistic eye, and great solutions. Your guys can do everything, and do them excellent. it's so nice no to have to deal with several different subs. I can't believe how awesome our yard is, And how smoothly the construction went. We now have the nicest Landscape on the street, and get compliments all the time.

We got 3 other estimates from other recommended landscapers. They were a joke and didn't even compare with you . They didn't seem to even know what we wanted, or didn't care. Anyhow after getting their estimates , we thought yours would be the highest because you were leagues better. We were surprised you where lower and actually offered more. Since you have finished our landscape I have met and seen dozens of other people your team has worked for and they all love you guys. You are for sure the best landscaper in the area if not the world. I could never thank you enough for all your hard work and kindness.
People like you and your men are rare.
God bless you

We interviewed and talked to so many designers and landscapers that where highly recommended. But they just couldn't understand the style and vision we where after. When we met you it was like you totally spoke our same language, you really listened and understood exactly the feel we wanted our landscape to give. It is so great , when our friends come over to see their jaws drop. They can't believe how beautiful our house is because of the new landscaping. They don't want to leave -- it's just like paradise.
Dude you rock,
Palos Verdes
I can't believe your knowledge of plants, how do you remember all of them. And the way you know how each of them will flourish in the areas you put them is incredible. I just love the incredible colors and textures you combine together it creates such a stunning look.
Your foremen and men are so wonderful to work with.

I am so happy to say that my house is really finished. As you know, I like to pass on references. They have to be really good though. LaForest Landscaping added the finishing touch to our house and did an excellent job. They were so easy work with too. I really believe in promoting quality work. We have made the mistake too many times before by going with the cheapest price and getting exactly what we paid for.
I give them a five star rating highly recommend.

Thank you very much for your prompt attention to our sprinkler system. I also wanted to let you know that we couldn't be happier with the job you did on our yards. It makes coming home from work each day, a pleasure. I'm talking about that feeling when you realize that the peaceful looking home your pull up to is yours. The landscaping that you did has made all the difference , everything is still alive and thriving. We both feel that you and your employees take extra care and pride in your work and it shows.

Thank you for all you've done to support building the living 911 Memorial to those who lost their lives on 9/11 and to their families who live with that loss each day.

Thanks so much for helping me out with my clients.
Ed Beall,
Palos Verdes

A few years back we did a job for a client who said we really went up and a above the call of duty on his job. He was so excited he thanked me immensely for the job we did for him. He also sent us this article, saying it reminded him of our dedication to doing his job right.

The Hole in the Boat
A man was called to the beach to paint a small boat. He brought along his paint and brushes and begin to work as he was painting he realized there was a leak. So decided to mend it and then finish up the paint job. that day he collected his wages and went his way. The next day, the painter was surprised to see the owner of the boat pay him a visit with yet another check in hand. "You've already paid me for painting the boat" said the painter. "But this is not for the paint" said the boat owner. "It is for mending the leak." "But that was such a small thing that I did not even want to charge you for it" said the painter. "Surely you're not paying me this huge amount for such a small thing." "It is no small thing" said the boat owner. "When I asked you to paint the boat, I forgot to mention for you to fix the leak. When the paint dried my son and daughter decided to take the boat into the water and go fishing. When I saw the boat was gone I became frantic and feared that they would surely drown. Imagine the relief and joy when I saw them rowing back to shore. Your little unsolicited deed has saved our family, and that's worth far more than I can possibly repay."

It's worth remembering that the smallest of good deeds can make a big difference. Our lives and our relationships with others are not shaped so much by grand gestures as they are by seemingly small deeds and details. It doesn't take all that much to bring a smile to somebody's face or to offer words of encouragement. Sometimes in the smallest of acts we end up having the greatest impact. You never know just how important they turn out to be, just asked the gratified boat owner.
