We love Brenda and all the Synergy team! We will use them for future design and continue to use them for maintenance! The Synergy Landscape team are professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and extremely responsive. From Brenda and design team, to Dean and the installation team, to Max and his maintenance team, and finally, the administrative team, they have made, and continue to do so, our entire landscape experience seamless as they could. They kept our job (including other contractors) on track, something I’ve heard and have personally experienced, is not always the norm. We highly recommend Synergy Landscape Design and Maintenance!
