Boyd….Brookes and Bridig….2012 Houston Heights see below for befores and AFTERS ;)

This was a 2 part creation, plus drive and a new deck added also. Included water feature, pergola, paths, flagstone patios, gas firepit, deck, beds, 4 seating areas, fence hiding,  a HILL, and drainage control…..These afters taken just a month or 3 from planting. Some of the non spreading  bamboos will get 30-50 ft., the fencing will disappear as the bushes, shrubs , flowers and grasses keep growing. LOTS of blooming plants and all xeriscaped, so little water needed.

The client can and has added to the sanctuary with their own touches as suggested to help make it truly their own private retreat with their own special items and finds.

I recommend less mass produced Asian furniture or furnishings with all my clients. Those items have no energy ( chi) , are mass produced and look it, do not last long, and are always very unappealing since no human grace or elegance has gone into their design nor implementation.

And they are everywhere-0ften cheaply made copies of other designers, that will not last long and end up in a landfill soon……..Since most folks don’t know where else to shop or look for far more interesting finds, they tend to settle for what’s easy and cheap and, unfortunately,  it always looks exactly like that to others.

. I recommend buying older American items that were built to last and they reflect that  , refurbishing where necessary and adding architectural pieces and functional items  that are handcrafted by artisans who care (d)  about their creations. Kabloom does that , nothing we create is massproduced looking and never looks like anyone else’s work but Jeff Law’s. IMG_0658

>>>>>>Also, I’ve been thinking about what I wanted to write for our testimonial. This is what I came up with, I hope you like it. I could write lots, but tried to keep it as direct as possible and convey how great you are. See below.
We SO enjoyed working with you and can’t wait for your next visit.
Stay in touch or I’ll get Jeff withdrawals…haha! Laura
We waited a long time after being in our home to landscape. Our backyard was a large, open space with really no color other than the green trees surrounding our property. Although my husband & I are somewhat “do it yourself” folks, we found ourselves overwhelmed not knowing where to start and how to pull everything together. We wanted an outdoor sanctuary and retreat to bring us off our back deck and get us into our yard. After finding KaBloom and contacting Jeff, I knew instantly he had the creativity and vision to make a unique space for us to enjoy. We showed Jeff many outdoor pictures that I had been collecting from magazines, talked about colors and some challenges with our property. Then…KABLOOM! Jeff is like a genie in a bottle who pops out to make your landscaping wishes come true! Jeff has the unique ability to design and create exactly what you are dreaming of, even when you don’t know what that “dream” should look like. My husband & I trusted Jeff from the start and our result is even better than what we could have ever imagined! We are amazed it is the same backyard – worth every penny and Jeff is truly one of a kind who creates “one of a kind” sanctuaries. We gained a new retreat and a new friend, thanks Jeff! Looking forward to years of enjoyment, watching things bloom and grow.
