To Whom It May Concern:
This letter is totally unsolicited.  In fact, it’s the first such letter I’ve ever written. 

Olwin Landscape Design does a superb job:

  • Their initial call back to my request for a bid was prompt.
  • Their quote was prompt and detailed.
  • Their promised completion due date was met.
  • Their workers were hardworking, neat, polite and quiet.

Our lawns and plantings are flourishing.  ‘Nough said?

Dear Dave,

Just a short note to express our appreciation for the outstanding work you did on our backyard renovation project.  We could not be more pleased with the final results.  It’s like having our own private park.

It was a pleasure to work with you and your crew.  They, too, were exceptional: even down to making all those little adjustment or doing that little bit extra to meet our wishes.  We can not wait until next spring/summer when we can fully enjoy the fruits of your work.

Again, our thanks for an excellent job.

Dear Dave,

Thank you for the fantastic garden!  My landscape is a work of art, and certainly must be the finest one in the area.

From start to finish, you and your team have been a delight to work with.  I appreciate your expertise, your concerns about meeting my needs, and your willingness to work with me – and to continue to work with me – on the details which I’ve felt to be important.

Brian, in particular, is a real gem.  He managed his crew effectively and professionally.  They were punctual, quick and efficient throughout the job, in spite of the biting cold with which they had to contend.  Additionally, Brian was considerate and thoughtful in everything he did – from putting the newspaper on my doorstep each morning and making every effort to minimize the inevitable muddy mess, to taking the time to explain to me in cheerful detail the answers to all my questions.

Similarly, Tony’s arbor is simply beautiful, and his craftsmanship as fine as you said it would be.  It is obvious that your strong business ethic and concern for your clients is upheld by your employees in every sense.

I’m confident that you will continue to provide the same high level of service when I add some plants in the near future, and that you’ll continue to be accessible if future problems arise.  I will recommend your service most highly, and will be happy to serve as a reference for your company to prospective customers.

Thank you all for working with us on this project.  The homeowners are both really pleased and very appreciative of all of the attention to detail (especially with your assistance on the final punch list items, which were addressed up through last week).  The children are enjoying the yard and the pool and are doing a fine job of “breaking everything in”.

Additionally, we completed the project according to (if not a little sooner than) the finish date that the homeowner hoped for.  Thank you for working together and “around” each other in a yard that didn’t always allow for a lot of wiggle room.  Thank you, as well, for your personal attention in working directly with the homeowner as she had various questions or concerns to be addressed. 

As always, we value the level of patience and professionalism (which often exceeds mine!) that you bring to each project—it is truly unique and greatly appreciated!

Many thanks for a superb job!  I enjoyed watching my garden grow – and appreciated the patience you had with my “assistance”.  I will think of you as I relax on my little patio.

Fun News!  My neighbor up the street just came over and heard that my backyard was beautiful, how sweet. She is with Moraga Juniors and their looking for yards for their Garden Tour 2012. She came in the back and said "Please", it's gorgeous!  Thought you'd like to hear that.

We are really pleased with the way things turned out and would be happy to be used as a reference in the future.
