Since he helped us, Ryan has become a star; getting a lot of attention around town and accolades in the industry for his design and install work. He has won many awards, including at the Del Mar Fair this year. The display at the Fair was prepared in just a couple of days. All the big landscape companies were there. Ryan beat them all, winning "Best in Show" (and a bunch of other awards). Take a look:
As you can see, his style is very clean, modern, and sleek. His focus is xeriscape, but he is very knowledgable in other areas as well. Although, at the risk (ok, KNOWLEDGE) of sounding preachy, NO ONE in the Southwest should be putting in anything but xeriscape with our water situation. In fact, if you switch over now to xeriscape, you will actually be saving money in the not-too-distant future (and easing your social conscience). Informercial Over.
OK, a bit more: Ryan may just be the absolute nicest and most honest person you ever will encounter. I can see why my sister picked him. And oh yeah, did I mention he is an unbelievably talented artist? He sketched this of C-Man .... in just a couple of hours!!
