We have hired landscape architects for over 20 years and Carissa is absolutely the best. She has a tremendous vision, can communicate it so you can visualize the outcome, does a great drawing things out in CAD and then bringing things to life. She is also great when you are having to adjust your budget on the fly and still make things work beautifully. If you are a person who pays attention to all of the little details and cannot always be onsite, you can trust her completely to make sure things are done 100% correct. Of all of the vendors we used in building our house, Carissa was my favorite!
