Our Work

“My wife and I used Erik for our backyard landscaping and could not be happier.  Erik took a few emails and conversations and turned it into something that was beyond expectation.  They really did an amazing job and I would recommend them to anyone.  
They finished on time, on budget, and beat expectations on the end product.”

“Wow – we highly recommend Garden Art Landscape & Design. Erik was very responsive from start to finish. He came up with great design ideas, readily incorporated our requests, and was flexible throughout the project. He has an excellent crew, very hardworking and courteous. We are extremely happy with the finished product at our South Lake Tahoe home – both front and back!!”

“We couldn’t be happier with our yard and the work that Erik and his crew accomplished! He took into consideration everything that we wanted and mixed it with his creative mind and it turned out absolutely beautiful! We can’t thank you enough!”

“Our vacation home yard was a mess from years of not wanting to spend money on it until we moved here permanently. Once we did, we had no clue what to do. I picked Garden Art because of great reviews, and we were not disappointed. Like all the other reviewers said, besides the gorgeous composition, their greatest strength is Erik, who is always responsive to all questions and issues. He’s also fun and a pleasure to work with. His workers are polite and neat. He convinced us we needed boulders, and he was right -we love them. Both our neighbors and people walking by have complimented us on how beautiful the yard is. ​ We are happy consumers!”
