Kudos, Steve. Thanks again

Hi Steve,

Karin and I are happy to provide this letter of recommendation to whomever may be interested regarding your professional landscape architectural design service.

During the construction of our home, Karin and I knew we had a unique site with great potential. A 9,400 sq. ft. home within 6/10 of an acre is a total challenge to site and landscape properly. As expected, as the house took shape, backburner issues like landscape design became paramount, such as; the proper driveway alignment, its impact on the front entry, how do we handle the important side yard and in the already tight backyard that needed a pool, outdoor kitchen and a place to eat; these all became important concerns for us.

Steve DuBridge of DuBridge Landscape Architecture entered the scene and after our initial discussion, Steve immediately saw the big picture with his concept plan and then proceeded to work out the myriad details in his plan set, including vast hardscape design, plant selection and ironwork.

Once he decided the location of the driveway needed to change the approach to the house all of a sudden opened up for a spectacular front entry with beautiful planting, lawns, fountain, shade structures and urns. He even reworked the front portico to blend the architecture with the landscape – brilliant! We constantly receive numerous accolades for our landscape design and how it matches our home construction perfectly.

The cigar smoker’s patio and fireplace off the bar to the side of the house now takes center stage as I wanted. What I like is the seamless landscaping that link all these features with a sense that it just had to have been this way – kind of loose but also with an architectural edge, too. Steve even managed to carry through s strong feel of elegant, but comfortable design, just like the interior of our home.

The backyard is our private sanctuary complete with pool, BBQ, with outdoor kitchen, lawn, beautiful planting and terrace. Well done.

Kudos, Steve. Thanks again.
