Quotes
Two words: The Best. Diane Larson of Gardens by Di is a truly gifted designer and landscaper. She begins with a vision perfect for the environment and local aesthetic, and finishes with an attention to detail expected from an artist. We have used Di for three different projects and have loved the results every time. With each project, she has set the standard for the neighborhood. Diane and her crew are creative, conscientious, and courteous; it's a pleasure working with them. I highly recommend Gardens by Di -- and Diane Larson -- for any landscape or hardscape installation.

Quotes
We have worked with Di on three projects over the last seven years and would never even consider going with anyone else. She listened carefully to what we wanted, and then with her incredible artistic ability, went above and beyond our expectations. She is an absolute pleasure to work with, and we love our yard! (And so do all the neighbors!)

Quotes
Diane from Gardens by Di has landscaped two of my houses. In my first house, she landscaped the frontyard. She brought creative ideas to incorporate the hardscape with the landscape. She was promoting ideas that were water tolerant and easy to maintain. My frontyard landscaping was one of the reasons I was able to sell my home in a flat market. Gardens by Di recently landscaped my backyard. I'm continually getting compliments on using both succulents and flowering plants.

Di has an incredibly creative eye and attention to detail. I've recommended her to two of my best friends (who have both used her at least twice as I have) which should be testament to my confidence in her ability.

Quotes
Di is absolutely amazing! We have a very steep slope backyard and she took on the challenge and far exceeded our expectations. Her knowledge of plant materials for Southern California is amazing. Steve, her foreman, and entire crew was great! Very professional, timely, and respectful that it was our home and not a construction site. I would highly recommend Garden's by Di....she is an excellent designer!

Quotes
Diane worked directly with us to understand what we wanted to accomplish. After understanding our goals and our vision, she spent a lot of time figuring out what to do and how to do it. Then she and her team went to work. As the job unfolded, she kept us informed every step of the way, allowing us to participate creatively along with her. Her construction crew was timely, reliable, and courteous. They also responded to our questions and adjustments. Overall, we are extremely pleased with the results and the value for our money. We love our new backyard and will enjoy it for many years to come. We look forward to having Diane and her team come back to help us with the front yard and other landscaping projects. We have a wonderful new relationship!
