From the very start of our garden project, Riley showed a willingness to listen to our ideas, incorporate the requirements we had of the project and make suggestions. He was efficient with the timeline of the project and all along the way, took in our questions and concerns, adapting as needed. We would definitely recommend working with Riley for any type of garden project. His knowledge of plants is extensive and his design ideas are excellent. Not only do we love our new garden and look forward to enjoying it for years to come but we have had many of our neighbors comment on how much they love what we did to the garden.

Thank you Riley!

Creative Landscaping totally transformed my back yard into a beautiful, inviting, usable space. I relied heavily on Riley for all elements of the design, plant choices, etc, and was not disappointed. He also finished within the time frame he gave from the beginning and stayed within my budget. I would recommend Creative Landscaping to anyone ready to bring some beauty to their home or business.

"Riley Twohig has over the years successfully completed numerous jobs I have designed. His willingness to see what needs to be done and professionally fulfill the obligations of a plan or a request from a client, is a smooth and easy task for him to accomplish.  Riley graduated from Cal Berkeley with a degree in Landscape Architecture and chose to create gardens from the hands-on-approach. His vision for the environment is easily explained in his photos of the Big Sur Coast, two of which hang in my office."

"Riley and his crew transformed our backyard into a thing of beauty. I especially appreciated the neat and professional manner everyone exhibited. All the tools were kept in a trailer and they showed up with an outhouse on wheels. The disruption to our lives was minimal and the benefits speak for themselves."

"Creative Landscaping turned our derelict front yard into a beautiful garden. There are now quiet, private spaces as well as attractive public ones. We now spend time in our patio, shielded from the street where before there was no privacy. We are completely pleased with the final result. Thank you, Riley"

"I can think of no home improvement project that gives us greater pleasure than the sweet little garden that Riley designed and installed for us in the front of our house. It makes me smile every time I come home. Thanks, Riley!"

Dear Riley,

Aspects of the job that went exceedingly well were:

  • the cost estimate was clear, detailed and with minor changes (as agreed) was the final cost
  • billing was as work was completed
  • you kept me well informed of when particular work was to be completed
  • your workers were pleasant, explained what to me what they were doing, and were unobtrusive
  • had a port-a-potty on site
  • quality of work performed excellent
  • you are clearly very knowledgeable and were very helpful, especially in providing information to me after the job was complete
  • communication by phone and email was great
