Although I was initially happy with the French drain - after a year it failed and I had puddles in my yard. I called Brian and he came out. He said the reason was that the bark was moving into the drain on a high slope area. He said he would send me an estimate to install some boards to block this from happening. I never heard from him. I texted him a couple of weeks later to ask about the estimate and he did not reply. I am embarrassed that I referred my boss to him before this because apparently, he flakes out. Because of the slope and design, I will always have trouble with debris in the French drain.

Brain and Roberto were very easy to work with. Our project was quite large and involved coordinating with a neighbor on some details. When issues came up Brain worked closely with us to come up with satisfactory solutions to us and the neighbor. I was amazed how quickly the project was done. Roberto who did most of the hard labor was fantastic. He is like a machine. What I like most is Brian before they started had a vision of what the end result would be and was able to clearly explain it to my wife and I. This was not the experience that we had with other contractors. I would highly recommend Black Forest Landscape for any project. I'm sure we will work with them again.

My waterfall had to be rebuilt due to leaking (tree roots invading). Brian and crew did the most beautiful job; it is truly a work of art and so well done. The waterfall itself looks like it came right out of nature; it doesn't look man-made in the slightest. I plan to hire them for my outdoor lighting, as well! Well done!

I had them landscape a whole section of my property. They did a beautiful job. They did everything I asked and more. Brian was so easy to communicate with, super friendly, professional and dependable. I am extremely pleased with my new yard. Thank you Brian!

I recently had my deck rebuilt and underneath was a fairly large (~400-500 sq ft) and unattractive area. I wanted it to look finished and not be an eyesore. What I got was a well designed, very professional looking landscaped area - much nicer than I had envisioned. It is the perfect mixture of rock, mulch, plants and stepping stones. Brian listened to me, looked at the area and came up with the design. The work was done quickly once they got on site, everything was cleaned up and I even got some plant suggestions for another area. I have a go to plumber, painter, hardwood floor re-finisher, etc. Now I have a go to landscaper. Next time I need some work done I won't get bids, I won't call anyone else - I'll call Black Forest and know I'll get excellent customer service, design and results.

Black Forest did an excellent job! Brian did what was promised. He and his crew worked hard and built us what we had dreamed of. We are getting so many compliments on this project.

Brian was great. He listened to what he wanted and gave us his opinion on what would work. Our backyard looks great and we've received many compliments on his work.

Brain as great! He was always professional and very accommodating. He listened to our goals and worked to meet what we wanted, but also was very polite when making professional recommendations on how to improve our initial vision - which we appreciated! He worked with our schedule in terms of meeting on the weekends and later in the day. the only reason I gave 4.5 stars instead of 5 was there were a few times in the beginning when we didn't hear back from Brian promptly and we were sure of the status of planning. We are VERY happy with our results!

Brian was able to come out quickly to get a good look at the yard and get an idea of what we wanted to do with our yard. We ended up doing a retaining wall and putting in plants/trees. Brian has a great eye for what will work and look good. The job was done quickly and looks great. The only thing is that the cost of labor has gone up in Seattle so it was more expensive than I expected, but that's with any job I guess. Brian was able to work with our budget to get what we needed. I would recommend him and his crew.
