Well, we finally finished ...it
[our yard] did need tons of work, and our plants are really taking off. Thanks again so much for your help with
our yard. We are so happy with how it is turning out!"

"We were so pleased to have found Rob when we decided to transform our boring front lawn into a California native landscape. Rob's
expertise gave us a yard that people stop to admire on a regular basis. Rob was very easy to work with
and had a true knowledge of what it takes to design a California native garden, one that is so welcoming to us
every time we arrive home. The birds are frequent visitors and seem to enjoy our yard as much as we do.
Thanks, Rob.....The yard is truly beautiful!

"When we decided to replace our
lawn with native Californian plants, we contacted quite a few landscape companies. While some offered seminars
and others dabbled in natives, only Rob specialized exclusively in California landscapes. We were very impressed with his knowledge and
professionalism but didn't get excited until he brought over the blueprints and showed us photos of the
plants. He took his time and really listened to what we wanted--privacy, a bird feeding station, a meadow and
flowing path--and incorporated it all into a wonderful habitat. Thanks to Rob, we now have a unique and
beautiful native landscape, or as our neighbor calls it, "our new neighborhood park!" Thanks again, Rob,
for your wonderful work."

"The variety of elevations
and materials create a maze of angles, textures and colors. The small garden begs a prolonged look. The drought tolerate native California plants, the stones, rocks, and the mulch provide a
snug habitat, a miniature landscape to grace our entry. The dew and rain deepen the intensity of the
contrasts and help the moisture to saturate the soil. Our garden nurtures the environment and spirit. We look
forward to the young garden maturing into its own. People walking by “stop to smell the …manzanita!”

"We're very pleased with California Native Landscape Design.
Our greatest challenge was planting under Eucalyptus trees. Our neighbors had experienced years of disappointment trying to grow anything but
Jade plants alongside the Euks because of their competitive root systems and deep shade. With Mr. Moore's
knowledge and research, we have planted over 10 native plant species. All have shown growth and
Throughout the planting process, Mr. Moore has been very supportive. He
offered local retailers for all our products. He stopped by to see the progress and tipped us on specialized
needs for a couple of plants. His response to our messages were all timely and complete.
CNLD has created a wonderful space for our family to enjoy. We find
ourselves relaxing in the open spaces. Our son loves to race through the walkways and explore the rock swail.
Butterflies come to rest on the warm rocks and we've found evidence of other wild critters visiting our yard.
It's been a real hoot! Thanks so much for the great landscape

"It was great working with Rob Moore and California Native Landscape Design. When wildfires destroyed much of the landscape surrounding our two
high schools, Rob worked diligently with a team of other landscape professionals to provide us with a plant
palette and landscape design rich in California native plants which met our needs of being drought tolerant,
low fire fuel, and slope stabilizing."

I'm delighted to report that all 50 of the plants are alive and doing very well - growing, blooming, looking very happy. Thanks for being so thorough
in your analysis of the site and my preferences. The plants you selected and the design for their placement
have worked out beautifully! The whole neighborhood is very impressed with the transformation from boring,
thirsty grass to a lovely native landscape.”

“Hi Rob- I was just online looking at your web site and realized I had never
written you about how pleased I am about the landscape design you created for us. It is gorgeous and flourishing! Our neighbors love to bring their friends
and family by our place to show them our landscaping. Rainbow Water District is pleased because our irrigation
consumption is over 66% reduced from what it was before you implemented our 'new look.'
Thank you so much for your imagination, sense of design and
ability to convey that in the 'real world.'”
