“After seeing Scott Cohen's work at our cousin’s house, we knew The Green Scene would be the perfect choice to remodel our backyard. Our project was quite large, consisting of a pool and Jacuzzi (hot tub) remodel, BBQ, pergola and putting green. From the initial consultation all the way through the construction, The Green Scene team was professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with. This is a very talented group and we highly recommend them. So much so, that we decided to have them remodel our front yard too! “
We hired Scott Cohen and The Green Scene to design our outdoor kitchen. Although the project got behind a bit and a few hiccups occurred, Scott's artistic design and his team's quality work got us to expand the scope of the project to include a sun pad and a fire pit area. Scott's crew knows what they're doing and are able to bring his artistic designs to life. We now have an amazing backyard that our family enjoys on a daily basis!
We originally hired Green Scene to install hardscape, landscape, and our pool/spa when we moved into our new home in 2004. We have been more than happy with the results and have really enjoyed our yard. When we decided recently to add a firepit and outdoor seating - calling Scott was a no-brainer! The little touches …follow-up/status emails, pleasant workers on-site. The big things - matching the flagstone and concrete color from 11 years ago for the new installation, following through and resolving every single item on my checklist, adding sprinkler checkup, installing new lighting, etc. These guys are fantastic! Not the cheapest, but certainly competitive and worth every penny. You get what you pay for and with the Green Scene - that means top-quality workmanship and excellent customer service. Special tip of the hat to Frank - his customer service, cheerful attitude, attention to detail, and knowledge made it all come together. Also, Mario and crew did a fantastic job on the stone work.

“We were hesitant to spend the money, but we're glad we did. They left our house immaculate before they left each day…. The owner was so helpful. He really took time to explain all the pros and cons of things we were choosing. We would definitely recommend this company. They were honest, fair, trustworthy and honestly, just nice people to work with. The job was also done on time. Wow!” - Kim Thomas.
These are excerpts from just a few of the many testimonials we have received from former clients.
"We are very delighted with our new back yard. For 16 years our family lived with just dirt and weeds in our backyard. We interviewed many architects and pool companies. Thank you Scott and The Green Scene for a job well done We highly recommend the Green Scene.

- Najeeb and Aiesha Gauri"
I want to thank you, Scott, for listening and addressing all of my concerns. Once we met I knew Green Scene was the right choice.
As you know, following a bad experience…, I was paralyzed for a year not knowing where to turn to hire a new contractor that could and would be willing to tackle the mess that the previous contractor had left. Our pool was empty with loose chips, uneven brick coping, dug up trenches, and piles of dirt where the concrete patio had been torn up and drains had been left exposed and non-functional. I watched a few episodes of HGTV's Get Out, Way Out! where I saw you transform barren backyards into beautiful resorts. I was embarrassed to show you the mess at our home, but after our first meeting I knew I had found the right person for the job. Your kind and comforting demeanor inspired trust and confidence that you and The Green Scene could transform our unsightly nightmare into a beautiful backyard comparable to the ones seen on the show. We were in good hands with Eric Scharon, our project supervisor. He is friendly, most resourceful, knowledgeable, attentive, and hardworking. He made the job run smoothly. He addressed any questions or concerns immediately.
I am so impressed with your crew and apologize if I forget anybody. Their work was professional and very meticulous. They really took pride in their endeavor. What a marvelous group of people! It was always very pleasant to call the office and speak to any one of your staff. They were courteous, extremely professional, and on top of all permits, orders, and schedules. Your billing was detailed and easy to understand. I always felt at ease calling your office for assistance. I looked forward to our onsite meetings where you would enthusiastically display new materials and ideas. All together, The Green Scene is exceptional. Thank you for the stunning pool and spa, the spectacular copper fire bowls with water cascades, the exceptional outdoor fireplace with television, the fountain, and the great choice of pavers, tiles, and landscaping. In my wildest dreams I had never pictured such an extraordinary piece of art. Scott, you turned my backyard into a gorgeous, tranquil, resort-style private oasis. I am amazed at your imagination and execution. We love it!

Dear Scott, We are thrilled with the backyard you and your team created for us. When we first met, you asked questions to get a feeling of who we are, what we like, and what we wanted for our backyard. Your drawing surprised us with how you had taken that conversation and drawn it into a plan that was so much better than our original vision. Your vision put all our ideas together in an artistic, flowing, and inviting way. We loved it at first sight! The crew that worked on our yard was amazing. We were very impressed! …a team of friendly, hard working, professional, courteous workers who were always anxious to please. They took pride in their work and worked to insure that our yard matched the plan. Our completed backyard is an amazing oasis for our senses. The hot tub with its wonderful bar is always inviting. The artistic layout of the hardscape and selection of plants treat our eyes. The various fragrances fill our sense of smell. The fire pit entices us to roast hot dogs or marshmallows. And the waterfalls bring that soothing sound that only flowing water can give. Our yard calls to us to come out, relax, and enjoy. Thank you, Scott. It is fantastic and just what we wanted. We are enjoying it every day. You took your plan and made it happen. We couldn't be happier.
Darrell and Carol Weyrens
PS Our neighbors think we have the best yard around and like to show it off to their friends.
Dear Scott, Mike and I would just like to thank all of the employees at The Green Scene for making our pool remodel go so smoothly. The crew went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure things were just as we wanted them. Being an accountant, I was also happy that we finished slightly under budget and the invoices matched well with the contract. I am hoping I can use The Green Scene again when we do future landscaping work and I would recommend them to anyone who was looking for a great landscape and swimming pool design and build firm. Thanks again , Marlo M. Aragon
To say Scott Cohen is an artist diminishes his ability to execute a precise objective, as an honest and morally sound contractor, to say he is a great contractor diminishes his artistic creative ability to seamlessly bridge form and function. He is a great visionary and has put together a top level crew to facilitate the implementation and execution of his vision. He is a renaissance man in the purest and most concrete definition, his knowledge of pools, materials, plantings, gardening, and construction are second to none. He finds creative ways to seamless blend his pool designs into the environment and into the lifestyle of the homeowners.
In the crowded space of pool builders and contractors, he is in a class all by himself. - Grace Flowers
Talk about mind blowing results. We asked for a one-of -a-kind pool and boy did we get one. Scott Cohen is a creative genius. He listened to all of our concerns, wishes and ideas and put together an environment which exceeded all of our expectations.
We originally hired Green Scene to design and construct a pool and later added a patio, sun deck, landscape and lighting. They were 100% professional and lived up to all of their project management timetables impeccably. The crew were kind, professional, knowledgeable, courteous and most of all.... NEAT.
What impressed me was how the whole project came together like poetry.
Natural Tuscan Pool & Spa - Scott Cohen is a true artist and a skilled consultant. He is fun to work with and makes sure that he hears what you want. In the process, they provide lots of samples and ideas so even when you are not sure exactly the look or the material...you find it together. The teams that build the pool are professional, neat, concerned about getting it right and wonderfully pleasant. If you are looking for a pool designer and builder, look no farther; they are the best!! Thanks Green Scene for the redesign of our backyard. I love it!! - Marc and Janel Holland
Scott Cohen has an incredible flair for landscaping design. Scott’s challenges with our yard was to make a sloping yard flow without making it into 2 levels, adding to the existing hardscape so that it looked like the yard was done all at the same time instead of 8 years apart and basically anticipating exactly what we wanted when we didn’t even know. Well, He did it! With the addition of the built in BBQ area and the Fire Pit We love our yard, it is so beautiful! In our front yard we stayed with the basic design that we already had but Scott embellished with some hardscape and accessorized with lighting and beautiful drought tolerant plants we now have the prettiest house on the block.
Now let’s talk about the crew that did it all. Frank led the team that worked on my project. There really are no words to describe how amazing his crew is. They take pride in their work and I never felt that they were rushing so that they could get to the next job. As issues came up and things changed they never made me feel like it was an inconvenience. I have worked with a lot of contracting crews and Scott’s team is by far the best I have ever worked with.
It is rare these days to find a contractor that actually cares and provides the type of quality work that the Green Scene provides. The bottom line is….I would definitely hire them again.
Scott is a very good pool and landscape designer, and helped us maximize the functionallity of our limited backyard space, creating an awesome and beautiful backyard with a modern pool.
The Green Scene's job supervisor Eric and his crew were a team of hard-working and courteous professionals, working diligently throughout the project. We are extremely greatful to them for making our backyard a dream come true. However, we were less impressed by some outside contractors.
The Green Scene office staff managed the permitting, project management, and other functions exceptionally well and were always professional and responsive. We are also greatful to Scott's office staff for their work on our project.
Given the complexity and magnitude of these types of projects, it is inevitable to have delays, technical issues, and other complications. Scott and his teams' years of experience is extremely valuable to help minimize the unavoidables.
We have been enjoying our pool, spa, and backyard for the last three months. My family is looking fordward to years of magical times in our backyard, swiming in the pool, relaxing in the spa, barbecuing on the outside grill and entertaining our guests.
We met Scott Cohen recently when looking to remodel our backyard, build a BBQ station and renovate our 25 year old pool/spa. He provided a magical video illustrating how our completed project would look. We were awed by the design and decided to engage Green Scene. The work was performed flawlessly under the direction of supervisor Frank within the schedule projected and cost estimated. The sub-contractors and Scott's crew worked cleanly, courteously and professionally. We could not have dreamed or anticipated the magnitude this transformation could create. When friends and relatives see this new outdoor environment our pride intensifies. This is the first time that I have publicly verbalized my experience, but Green Scene highly deserves our praise and appreciation. I highly recommend Green Scene. - Peter and Alicia
