"I consulted with 4 different firms before choosing KB5 Design Studios. Ed not only worked within my budget, but was open to what I was truly looking for in my front yard. I mentioned I liked flowers and privacy, and voila! Look at my garden today. I waited a year for this review, and I'm glad I front yard looks wonderful one year later."
