"Dear Wan-Chi, I checked my calendar a few days ago and realized that Classic Nursery will be doing our spring maintenance work very soon. It is hard to believe that it has been over a year since we completed the hardscape and landscaping of our new home here in Bellevue...I have become a consistent user of organic products and methods for all of my planting and fertilizing. I was gratified that you not only agreed with my convictions but were able to implement them in the work that was done on our property. Thank you very much for being an advocate and not an impediment. I would also like to recognize you for the artistic sensitivity and skillful eyes that you brought to our rather large project. Your insights were very helpful in visualizing what the yard would look like upon completion and in the years to come. I can hardly wait to see what it will look when three full growing seasons have past. I think it is going to be even more beautiful... I was completely ignorant of the unique climate of the northwestern United States. Your help in making the right plant choices for the new home were crucial to the long term success of our landscaping vision. Supplies at the local plant markets at the time I started the project were very limited. I appreciate the enthusiasm with which you searched for the best choices and the constant efforts you made to find sufficient suitable plants. Your judgement in selecting and recommending the right plants for the Seattle area was sound. The evidence of that fact is now growing in my front and back yard. I was worried that the heavy cold rain that persisted all winter would damage the roots of the new plants and the recent transplants. My yard was soaked and wet all winter and I feared that many plants would die. Therefore, I am happy to report that almost 100% of the plants appear to be alive and doing well. Almost all have swollen bud, new leaves or flowers already, though the first day of spring was only a few days ago. All of the perennial grasses are showing signs of growth. I look forward to working with you this spring at our regularly scheduled maintenance event so that we can continue to improve the health and beauty of our outdoor spaces. Best Regards,"

"I could not be more pleased with the work that Alan's company has done in completely transforming the backyard of my town home from an overgrown, plant-filled, unusable space -- to two separate levels of paved patios below my deck -- one level with a beautiful fire pit and the second with a lovely water feature that feels zen-like. Where before we only looked down at the plants, now we are drawn down there -- and it feels wonderful to have taken a smallish backyard area and expanded so that it is not only usable, but also just makes you want to go down and sit and enjoy! Alan's team (led by Hugo and Ken) could not have been more professional. They were always on time, very courteous, did a thorough clean-up at the end of each day, and I'll even say, artists in their own right. Ken's work in building the fire pit was detailed and finished perfectly. He worked on it like it was his own...
I couldn't be more happy with the finished result -- it FAR exceeds my expectations!!!
To Alan and his team, a big thank you!"

"Just had to say how much Peter and I absolutely love our backyard garden. We sit out at night enjoying the pond, the birds the butterflies, the landscape and constantly remark what an amazing, peaceful setting you created for us. Peter loves futzing in the garden and spending time training his pod of fish, all named the Larrys (the big guys) and the Garys )the gold fish. Every night is like an adventure at Sea World when the fish get fed. Hope you are having a great summer".

"I also wanted to let you know how much we appreciated Hugo's knowledge, professionalism, hard work, and overall attitude. He is an amazingly hard worker and was so patient and accommodating. You're lucky to have a guy like him working on your team. He is truly one of a kind and an overall great guy. Thanks again. We are so pleased with what we have so far and look forward to the final product!
Summer BBQ's just became a lot more appealing!"
