Time management, organization, efforts to coordinate with other parties
and keep the project on a time table
Amanda was able to make connections with local craftsmen in the community to bring to light her design intentions. She worked with a lot of different people who were able to contribute. Throughout the project her efforts were instrumental in coordinating the team and keeping the project on schedule.
We both are retired from careers in the arts, and Amanda successfully reflected our love of the arts through elements of the design. For example, she commissioned wood sculptures for one area, incorporating totem animals with significance to us. She was sensitive to site-specific conditions in her design and planning.
Passion for plants & wildlife
Amanda demonstrated great love of nature and passion for plants and wildlife in her design and work. She created a wildlife corridor along the edge of the site.
The design emphasized native plant species and restoration of the white oak habitat. She showed ecological sensitivity in her design and practices. As a result, animals and deer are returning to the site and enjoying it as much as we are!
Willingness to learn
Amanda is a good listener. She was willing to learn from experiences and
maintain a positive attitude . It was helpful to us, as we really didn't know much about the whole process!
Amanda displayed honesty, truthfulness, integrity and good communication skills in every phase of this project. As a result, we will be enjoying our new landscape for many years. and will consider her part of our family for helping bring it to fruition. Anyone who hires her will enjoy her vision and artistic sensitivities in nature.
