We worked with Conscious Environments to re-develop our backyard and portions of our front. Their design work was excellent and provided us with a very creative look that was perfect for our entertainment needs. It definitely enhanced the value of our property. In addition, they provided a high quality of workmanship.
I would highly recommend Conscious Environment to makeover your yard. We bought a house with a sloped, slippery old tile patio. Josh and his team turned it into a great hang out area with below stone and plants. They were professional, on budget, and on time. Great Job!!!
We gave Josh an ‘open canvas’ to design a new backyard, including a new spa. The results are amazing! The crew was very respectful and cleaned up daily.
I have worked with Josh and his team and I enjoy the fact that they do what they say they will do. They have clean and organized job sites and have great industry knowledge. Their design ideas bring the architure and landscape together as one
As a professional photographer who has worked with Josh on numerous occasions, the level of customer service of Conscious Environments is truly amazing…Josh is a true professional in every aspect of the job.
