SOMOS got top billing in the Landscaping section of the Resources guide!
"Becca & Carlos (Somos Design and Landscaping) were a delight to work with for many reasons, (3) of which I have highlighted below:
1. Their creations/designs are truly imaginative. There is "magical" quality to their work and they have the ability to take a clients vision and create something “uniquely unique”.
2. Professionalism and Craftsmanship from start to finish - they were consistent from the development of the concept to its' execution and eventual completion. Their projects are well-executed and the employees of SOMOS are equally delightful individuals to work with.
3. They are wonderful human beings who are easy to work with, communicate well, and have well-developed ability to create something inspired and visionary.
Be advised - if your looking for someone to throw down sod and plant some bushes, this is likely the wrong outfit for you. If you are a creative individual looking for an original design with an artisans touch, their creative abilities warrant your consideration.
We would HIGHLY recommend them."
"As a real estate agent, I know a lot of tradesmen. So when I decided to redo the landscaping on my own yard, I had many landscapers to choose from. But Becca and her team at Somos listened so carefully to my (long) list of wants, providing many ideas of their own, so I knew I was in good hands.
Leaving the trees in place, we pretty much scraped the front yard and back, starting over. They added nutrients to the soil, put in two different grasses based on light conditions, and added many, many beds. The results were fantastic! I've lived with our "new" yard for about a year now and could not be happier. Blooms of different colors, different scents, shapes, textures... Both serene and a little playful. Who knew you could get "lush" and "water wise" in Texas at the same time? When I have friends or clients over to my house, their first word when entering the backyard is generally "wow".
In addition to the gorgeous design, Somos did a great job with execution. Her team was friendly and professional, got cozy with my dogs, and left their work areas clean after each day. They were able to accommodate a few changes along the way without a hiccup. I've had them come back every couple of months for maintenance, to protect my investment, and their work continues to be great. I could not be happier!
I have referred Somos to many clients in the past year and always hear great feedback whether small jobs or large. I recommend them unreservedly!"
"I am not an easy person to work with. The people at Somos are. Their patience and flexibility allowed our project to exceed all expectation. Somos went above and beyond the call of duty. There should be a picture of Somos next to the definition of Professional in the dictionary. I look forward to working with Somos in the future and strongly encourage anyone thinking about landscape design to use them."
We hired SOMOS to create a pretty and modern landscaping solution to the area around our above-ground swim-spa. The swim spa is a huge brown square of ugly, and SOMOS was great in making seem more fitting to the back yard. The created a lovely limestone tile pathway surrounded by gravel, and put large and small plants to help hide the spa. They did a lovely job. The planning phase went by very smoothly as well, and they were very open to my changes. It was the first house project in a long time that went so smoothly!
We love the folks at SOMOS. They conduct themselves artfully, professionally and respectfully in every way. They designed our project, then helped us edit the design to better fit our budget without making us feel as if we were sacrificing a single thing. Then they installed the project quickly and without incident. It looks just like the design drawings. They even came out and tore out a section of the grass that they installed when they came to check it a few weeks later, because they were afraid it was going to be a "low spot" that would collect more moisture than they hoped [even though it looked perfect to us]. They listened to everything we wanted, and they gave great suggestions, matching the design to our hopes, the aesthetics of the surrounding architecture and in an environmentally responsible way.
