“As all projects do... it started off with an idea to "do a few things" to upgrade our backyard. We have lived in our house for 3 years and although our backyard wasn't bad, it didn't feel quite "right". We didn't know what we wanted except for a pool with cleaner lines and for a BBQ area that didn't feel like an afterthought. We wanted something timeless, serene, space conscious for entertaining, our own little paradise... without having an idea of what we wanted exactly.
We are, for a lack of better words, in awe and in love with our new backyard. What we received with Scott Cohen's design was all of that and more. In addition, the entire process is "an experience"... from seeing the first design, working closely with Scott to tweak and further personalize the design, to picking out the materials right in their office because they have a wide variety of material selection there. And all contracted home projects go, it took some time to complete our backyard and front yard but Frank, the foreman for the job made sure everything went smoothly and our deadlines were met. We feel he went above and beyond, and he was a true advocate for us and our job. He met our requests with sincerity and diligence and we truly enjoyed working with him.
As a person who relies on recommendations from friends, I was a little nervous to go with The Green Scene because they weren't a recommendation...I found them on Yelp and expanded my research from there. We are thankful that we did. They may not be the low-cost leader, but you get what you pay for. Scott as a designer is masterful and the team delivers quality.”
