Testimonials

LandWest Design Group has a well-deserved reputation for the highest quality design and implementation of their projects and for the integrity of their organization. We chose Rick and the LandWest team to redesign and build out the grounds for our home on Lake Austin and were very pleased with the results, from both the aesthetic and customer service perspectives. I would recommend LandWest to anyone with a complex landscape project that requires creativity in design and expertise in execution.

“The team at LandWest is super creative and every aspect of their work is completely professional. If I had a LandWest in every industry I deal with my life would be so easy it’s ridiculous. Every time someone lets me down I compare them to Rick Scheen. He does what he says he will do, on time and within budget, every time. I’ve hired LandWest to do several residential projects in both Austin and in Colorado. I may have paid more up front to send them to Colorado, but it was well worth it because there just isn’t a LandWest in Colorado.”

“Rick and his team have phenomenal artistic vision and deliver a product that is structurally and visually the best in class. I have hired LandWest for numerous and very different projects, ranging from landscaping a hill country ranch that includes boulders and a river, to my family’s home which is traditional Italian with lots of stonework and clean, classic lines. For each of these projects the LandWest team looked at the site and the architecture, and talked to us about our desires and our budget. Everyone we worked with at LandWest—Rick and John in the design phase, Tim through the installation phase and Chris when we got to the maintenance phase —was very responsive and focused on delivering what we wanted. I appreciate their professional and personal touch.”

“I have ridiculously high standards, and LandWest Design Group somehow managed to meet and exceed them. I went through three firms before a friend told me about LandWest. They take it to a completely different level. It comes down to a thousand details—everything from the thought that they put into the drainage, to how much sunlight every plant needs, to what the landscape will look like in every season. Rick is able to see a piece of dirt as a blank canvas and visualize what will eventually turn into art. That’s part of what made me enjoy working with him so much. He and his team are perfectionists, artists and visionaries. And unlike other companies I’ve worked with over the years, LandWest is equally strong in design, build and maintenance. I give them my highest recommendation.”

“For 15 years we did most of our own gardening. After moving into our home 10 years ago, we hired LandWest Design Group. What a welcome change that was for us! Chris and Eric know our idiosyncrasies so well and are quite adept at anticipating our needs. For instance, we casually mentioned that Neel’s mother was coming to visit. Lo and behold, the morning of her arrival, the LandWest crew was in the yard spiffing things up. That’s just one example of the kind of service we have come to expect from LandWest. There is nothing like coming home to a beautifully maintained yard. By taking care of our landscape so well, LandWest actually relieves some of our day-to-day stress.”
