Kate is amazing! She is calm, talented, honest, friendly, communicative, and easy to work with. We did a total backyard redo. We had met with a bunch of designers, all of whom didn't quite listen to what we wanted and instead tried to give us a plan that aligned with their style, not ours. Don't get me wrong, Kate has style and is not afraid to speak up when she thinks something won't work or won't look good. But from moment one, she listened to what we wanted and then came up with a beautiful design that incorporated all of it. Even when we had to make some changes due to budgetary reasons, she rolled with it.
The contractor and installers that did the work were professional beyond belief. Friendly, respectful, and skilled.
And any time we had a question, Kate responded immediately via email, text, or phone. Another thing: she writes everything down. We've worked with people in the past who forget what was discussed or decisions that were made, and it gets frustrating when things keep not getting done. Not with Kate. It all gets written down, and it all gets done.
We truly had a great experience with her and would hire her again in a heartbeat.
