Professional service, quality contractors and innovative design are enough to consider when choosing Redbud, but for us it was the personal commitment to ensure the job was done right, on time and on budget. We have used them for large and small projects and have not been disappointed.
When we decided to build our new home on the lake, we knew the landscaping would make all the difference. Redbud was there to guide us through the project. Of particular note is the granite tier walls on the lakeside of our home — it came out just perfect. Thank you for guiding us through the process including designing and overseeing the landscape construction. And, most importantly, for staying on budget, on time and providing first in class service. Your work far exceeded our expectations.
From the very beginning, Redbud encouraged our active participation. The design team considered our lifestyle, tastes and budget to develop a landscaping plan that met all our expectations and was perfect for us. They carefully evaluated the physical space—its limitations as well as its potenital. They welcomed honest feedback and addressed any problems promptly and courteously. Their teams are top-notch craftsmen —-carpenters, masons and gardeners. The various projects were planned strategically so that there was no “down time” and work was completed according to schedule. In spring, as promised, they returned to inspect the condition of the plants and even replaced the ones that had not made it through the winter. Geff, Eric and Albert are consummate professionals —and all-around great guys as well!!
In a time where a successful finish to a project is more a rarity than the norm, I’d like to thank you again for all your help and professionalism, from beginning to end, on my pool project. The design phase was a pleasure, your people did an outstanding job and your coordination with the excavators, pool personnel, electricians, etc… was top-notch. In 2012 or 13, I expect to add a pool house with a full bar, bathroom, barbeque facilities, etc… As well as adding 2 more bedrooms and another bathroom to my home. Redbud will be coordinating the entire job for me. I know I will receive quality work done at a fair price. I’ll be contacting you early next year to begin the rough outline and discuss the timeline and parameters of the project. There is no need for me to deal with anyone else as I have full faith and trust in Redbud. Have a good summer and speak to you soon.
Since 2004, Redbud Development has been serving the entire Capital Region area's landscape design needs, as well as the Hudson Valley, the Great Sacandaga Lake region, the Lake George Region and beyond. We work with a trusted network of subcontractors which allows us to be very flexible and operate in a wider geographical area. Redbud is pleased to provide you with landscape design-only services, construction-only services or the preferred combination of both landscape design and construction.
Perhaps your outdoor project intersects with some interior renovation? Perhaps you are designing a house on a new plot of land with steep slopes? Perhaps you have a small city lot with grand plans for a new pool and garage requiring tricky permitting and approval processes? Redbud can help.
Our high level of service is designed to take away the hassle and headache normally encountered when dealing with the permit and variance process, local code enforcement and multiple contractors. On the design side, we will maximize the functional and aesthetic value of your property. On the project management side, we will deal with the sub contractor scheduling, help you with the material selection and make sure it all gets done right the first time to the highest quality standards.
Our landscape designers and project managers are professionals in their field. They use computer aided design to provide flexibility in the design process and to better interact and collaborate with architects, engineers, building contractors and interior designers.
Our goal is to provide you with a beautiful but functional outdoor environment so you are encouraged to stay outdoors with friends and family and enjoy nature.
