“Bare Roots Gardening are artists. Working with Zac has been an ongoing pleasure. They have loads of commercial and residential experience, transforming the run-of-the-mill into unique and performing landscapes. Personally, I’ve learned a great deal in the process—from native plant selection to getting some useful skills to observing my own yard and how water and light are moving through it. Highly recommended.”

After several disappointing experiences with two other landscape companies, Zac showed up and turned our pitiful yard into an oasis. Zac redid our sprinkler system which was botched by a previous company, resodded our entire yard, and designed/planted a beautiful variety of plants. We are so pleased with his work and can’t recommend him enough!

Bare Roots Gardening did a complete backyard redo for us. We could not be happier. Bare Roots provided unique designs and a large diversity of plants. Scheduling and communication on the project was exceptional. We will have Bare Roots back next year to tackle the front yard.

I love the work Zac/Bare Roots did for me. I wanted to maintain the natural feel of the yard.and have minimal upkeep. I especially love the container garden. He chose beautiful pots. Zac was dependable, professional and has remained available for my many questions.

Zac was great in designing and installing a waterfront garden of perennials and natives that gives us year-round color and texture as well as attracting pollinators. We are in our second bloom season since he installed and are delighted with the health and variety of our plants. This fall will be time for dividing and thinning. Zac is very knowledgeable and great to work with.
Zac from Bare Roots Gardening has transformed my front yard into a thing of true beauty. Starting with removal of 20 year old deeply embedded shrubs, revising my irrigation system, amending the soil, bringing in beautiful plants and the finishing touches, Zac's work ethic was tremendous. At times I didn't think he would be able to finish because so many of my neighbors interrupted his work to chat with him! Zac planned an array of plants that will having my yard in bloom from early spring through the fall. I gaze out of my office window with enjoyment and pleasure every day. Thank you, Zac. I look forward to tackling the back yard in the future!
