Bob has developed and executed several landscape designs for our historic sites, and we are currently working with him on a major garden restoration project. His work is simply excellent. He brings exceptional knowledge, creativity, and skill to the table, is thoroughly reliable, and provides great value for his service. I recommend him gladly and look forward to working with him on future projects.

Executive Director, Plymouth Antiquarian Society

I asked Bob to provide me with an overall landscape plan for my property that brought out its natural features, provided a great view from the street, featured an innovative planted stream bed, and was attractive year round. Bob spent a great deal of time reviewing the property and in one-on-one consultations with multiple plan reviews along the way. He came up with some great ideas and really took my ideas and developed them properly. The end result is an overarching vision that will make me the envy of the neighborhood and increase the value of my house. Bob was great to work with through the whole process and provided a very professional and top flight plan. I am looking forward to working with him on the implementation of the plan.

Great Hill Horticultural designed and maintains Brewster Historical Society's Victorian-era gardens at the Cobb Museum, 739 Lower Rd., Brewster. The gardens have become a major talking point and a place for reflection. Bob referenced the circa 1875 diary of former house resident Caro Dugan and, using heirloom seeds, recreated the feel of that bygone day. Because Bob is always on hand to refresh the gardens in season and keep them looking neat and clean off-season, we never have to worry about the first impression we give to our public.
