Client Stories

Our yard is SO beautiful! We spent the entire holiday weekend out in our new space. It is like our new, outdoor living room and we love it. Thank you!

Mitra and Nicole Kelly, Seattle, WA


“Thanks for everything.  We really like what you have done for us.  We will enjoy it very much.

Peter and EJ Chung, Bothell, WA


“When we lost a large cedar tree along the north fence line of our property, we were devastated.  With the tree gone, there was a loss of privacy and a huge void to fill; but the situation also created an opportunity.  We hired Michael, who stepped in and helped us create a vision to redesign and reshape this portion of our yard.  We are thrilled with the result, and have had a steady stream of neighbors comment on how beautiful the landscaping looks.  Michael is fantastic to work with: he listens well, has a wonderful design aesthetic, and is cost effective and practical.  We would definitely hire Michael for our next landscaping project! ”

Sally Meetter, Seatte


“If you want great design and turn-key implementation, Michael Muro is your guy. I love my front and back gardens and I love that Michael delivered it on time and on budget.”

Susan Brown, Seattle


“Our yard had some unique attributes that required a knowledgeable designer. On one side of the house was brutal sun and severe wind exposure. The other was shady and cool. Michael’s design and plant list was tremendously valuable. People always comment on how well our landscaping looks. Something is always in bloom on either side of our house.”

Gene and Beth Morel, Sammamish, WA


“From crafting a vision for the garden to installing it, Michael is wonderful to work with. I was very impressed with how quickly Michael translated our initial consultations into a very thoughtful garden design. Installation was flawless. I’ve been really happy with our garden, enjoy its beauty year round, and have received numerous compliments about it.”

Terri Bookwalter, Seattle


“The Garden is gorgeous, we greatly appreciate it on a regular basis and still get complements and accolades on your design. The plants are blooming is sequence as you no doubt planned, it’s quite delightful to look around to see which grouping is up next.”

Anders and Stacy Kruus, Mercer Island, WA


“Michael’s design has completely changed the way we live in the summer. We now have a beautiful space to eat outside, entertain, and relax. And every season there’s something blooming or adding color to the yard, reminding us how thoughtfully Michael planned. We are completely thrilled with the whole process of working with Michael.”

Steve & Marla Lippman, Seattle


“I have known and worked with Michael on both interior and exterior residential and commercial projects for over 20 years. It never fails to amaze me how he can create just the right plantscape to enhance and accent the exterior, architecture, or interior plan, and the precise arrangement of plantings to totally change a drab and ordinary environment into something spectacular. His ability to sense what the client or I are looking for despite our inability to be able to express the needs precisely, at the time, has been invaluable. No one deals with a professional for more than twenty years unless his or her interactions have been more than satisfying and fruitful. And it has been that and much more.”

Cheryl Bloom, Interiors Director, Bloom Design Associates, Seattle, WA


“Just wanted to drop you a note and tell you how great the garden looks, there’s color almost  year ’round now and the surprises just keep on coming with plants I didn’t remember we planted coming into bloom. We get a ton of  compliments and I am always passing on your name. Thanks so much for a job well done!

David Flum, Seattle


“Michael is knowledgeable, personable, creative and brilliant. He works magic with his landscape designs and seems to do so as easily as breathing. He has a long history of successful accomplishments as a professional. Decide to work with Michael and you will be amazed.”

Anne Borozan, Lake Forest Park, WA


“Michael really listened to what I wanted and took the time to truly get to know the space I had to work with. The design of my stone patio and stairs, as well as the landscape design and plant selection surrounding the stone look wonderful. I’ve been getting compliments from my neighbors and people walking by ever since it went in!”

Kari Hedman, Vice President Finance for Windermere Real Estate NW, Seattle, WA


“The garden is looking great!!  Can’t wait for you to see the beautiful design you put together for us. I can’t believe how much better our yard looks now that it’s filled in.”

Nicole Ferring, Bothell, WA
