Our backyard was in dire need of renovation. After a series of cheap landscape jobs and failed do-it-yourself attempts at creating a beautiful yard, we finally decided to call some professional landscapers. We met with with several well-known names, and we ultimately decided on Exterior Designs.

What set them apart from the rest was that we could see Ms. Katz's passion for her work through her extensive knowledge and creative ideas. As she stood in our yard assessing the scope of the work, we could tell that she genuinely cared about our space, as if it were her own yard. She and her team worked with us on every small detail during the planning process. When the work started, Beverly was there every day to make sure everything went smoothly. No stone was left unturned, and Beverly treated our yard as if it were the most important project of her career. Her team told me that she is always this meticulous and detail-oriented. I have never seen that in an outdoor designer before, and I was impressed!

In the end, we went from a backyard with no defined space to a gorgeous courtyard complete with a pergola, fountain, and beautiful flora surrounding it. We could have never done this ourselves, and we thank Beverly and her wonderful crew at Exterior Designs for their hard work in making our backyard a true oasis!

Worth Every Penny

I contracted the services of Exterior Designs a few months ago to create a back yard escape for my new home. Beverly did such a good job with such great attention to detail that I could not possibly ask for more. I seriously recommend her services for anyone with landscaping needs. Keep in mind that you get what you pay for and she is not inexpensive…however worth every penny.

Quality Service

Beverly Katz has been extremly professional, creative, dependable and resolved my backyard problem. I never thought I would have a comfortable back yard because there are no tree's and too much direct sun. I also did not have a proper hard surface. \n\nBeverly and her crew of workers created the most AMAZING, relaxing backyard room. No Kidding. It is my favorite rooom in the house now! Her use of colors and plants are unique. My backyard is so much better than I could have imagined.\n\n
