My wife and I have been working with Ben and his crew at Blue Oak for over 5 years. They turned a 30 by 100 foot flat, ugly lawn into a lovely backyard sanctuary for us. The process was delightfully collaborative: we would describe our vision, Ben would work with it, add his ideas, and come back with a proposal. After several iterations, we had the design we wanted. Ben and his crew: Felix, Logan, Bernie and (at the time), Sean, were skilled, professional, and great to be around. Our yard turned out wonderful, complete with a waterfall and a 30 foot stream around two sides of our raised and covered pergola. The other landscaping is beautiful with trees and plants that always have something in bloom. Since then we have used Blue Oak for a couple of smaller projects which have also worked out well. When follow up is needed, Ben has been responsive and efficient. I highly recommend Blue Oak.
