Residential Testimonials


June, July, August, September 2015

When we retired and moved to our new home in New Braunfels, we knew we wanted an easy-to-care-for landscape. It also needed to be drought tolerant and deer resistant.

Wayne took that little bit of information and developed a plan that went beyond our wildest dream.

Mike and Steve made the plan come to life and we can’t believe how quickly the plants have matured to become the fabulous landscape we now enjoy.

We now have a lovely habitat that attracts birds, bees and butterflies. The colors and textures absolutely delight us every single day.

If you want every detail done right, give WDS a call. You will not be disappointed.

Wayne and his staff at WDS Landscape are a pleasure to work with. I’m very pleased with the Wayne's landscape design.

APRIL 2014

When I first contacted WDS with a very general project in mind I had no idea what lay in store.

From my initial phone conversation with Wayne to a transformed garden view was short in time and completely satisfying.

The team was creative, considerate, friendly and professional throughout. Michael and Steve brought obvious knowledge and skill to the project and worked long and hard.

It was exciting to see the changes that each day brought, and it was clear that they couldn’t do their jobs so well if there were not an excellent office operation providing support.

What a joy to work with people who really know what they’re doing!

There was great attention to detail, both aesthetic and functional. Michael has a fine eye and was diligent about consulting with us each step of the way.

The pricing was all up front - quite reasonable and with no surprises. Suppliers and sub-contractors were of obvious quality and reliability.

Though ours was not a large project, it was treated with care and respect.

I would recommend WDS without reservation and look forward to having them back.

We were very impressed with the prompt work and professionalism of WDS.

All of the flower beds around our home needed a total makeover on very short notice before an event we had planned.

WDS got right on the project and completed it in a timely manner and we could not have been more pleased!

"We are thrilled with our landscape. The design process was personal so the landscape fits us and our house.

We received more than just plants and grass - there was grading and drainage work done. The installation was meticulous and the crew were professional and friendly. For all that we received the price was excellent."

May 2013

"At first we were worried that WDS would not be interested in working for us because we have a small backyard. But Mike, Wayne and Steve turned our boring grass and fence backyard into a dream yard.

When we sit on our new patio with the beautiful pergola and flowers, bushes and trees, we feel like we're sitting in a fancy resort.

Thank you so much guys for making our dream backyard come true!! You guys were the greatest - efficient, thorough and kind."

Rodger and Janeen Barlow

"Wayne,

I would like to genuinely thank you and your staff (Mike and Steve) for my gorgeous water garden and landscaping! I started the project myself and quickly realized I needed professional help and that is exactly what I got with WDS.

From the expert design to the detailed project complketion WDS provided us with the dream yard that now matches our dream home.

Your knowledge of native plants and fish are second to none and they are all thriving in the paradise WDS created.

Although the deer in our area may not appreciate the design :) (they have not touched our plants) we love it.

Wayne, I give you and WDS the highest recommendation because you stand by your work and truly go above and beyond.

Feel free to have any customers contact me if they want to visit or simply need confirmation that they are making the right decision in choosing WDS."

Sincerely,
Les Bishop

"Wayne,

Many apologies for taking so long to provide comments following a totally satisfactory project for our home. I mailed a hard copy of the following in addition to the consent and comment form. Feel free to take photos at any time - everything is greening up nicely, including the crape myrtle we discussed...that's budding very well.

Thanks once again to you, Mike and Steve for the great craftsmanship, design and teamwork. More so...thanks for not being a traditional contractor - we were indeed fortunate to have developed a relationship with WDS...and we'll do it again.

Absolutely surperb! This was a big project and the results are awesome! Mike and Steve are true professionals who worked "with us" and not "for us". We needed a couple of changes as the project came together and their advice and assistance were not only valuable, but the outcomes were better than we envisioned. You simply can't go wrong with them!

Wayne reviewed the progress midway through and it was a pleasure having his oversight. Not all our friends have had such great project relationships with their contractors.

Personal touch care, collaboration and exceptional customer service! Many of the words that describe the WDS team.

The only call we'll make for our next project is to WDS...they're welcome at our home any time!"

Dave and Debbie Lefforge


February 2013

It was such a pleasure working with WDS. Mike and Steve were very professional & ready to listen to any of my suggestions. I'm so excited to see my beautiful new landscape evolve with new texture and color.

I will definitely recommend WDS Landscape & Design.

Thank you!

We love our new landscape project. There were no surprises. We received a detailed estimate up front and they stuck to that.

We would recommend WDS to everyone.

Doug and Sue-Ann Garland


November / December 2012

Our acreage property provides challenges for landscaping due to heavy shade of oak trees and a large herd of hungary deer.

WDS took this into consideration and planted flowerbeds with Texas native plants that have proven even during the winter season of leanest deer fodder to be deer resistant.

The variety in the plants is amazing, and the artistic eye if Wayne Whittier and his staff have created a lush landscape of curved rock and greenery surrounding our entire house and pool.

We gave Wayne complete freedom with his design and have been delighted at the transformation.

We are thrilled with the design and installation of our landscape.

WDS installed our entire front yard, including lighting, and did a FABULOUS job!!!

Wayne developed a BEAUTIFUL plan and the design was excellent with Wayne making several modifications before plans were final.

We were really impressed with the installation. Mike and Steve were meticulous with every detail-taking extra time to make sure every detail was perfect.

They spent almost a month getting everything perfect and we could not be happier!

The finished product far exceeded our expectations. They went above and beyond to make sure that we were totally happy with our yard and we are!!!

We look forward to working with them again in the future!!!

Thanks Again !

January 2012 - My wife and I wanted to add a water feature to our backyard and contacted WDS after reviewing the work documented on their website. Michael came out, we visited and I was impressed by his initial enthusiasm.

After a number of visits, I requested a visit to see a completed project that Michael felt might be close to what I had described as our desired “look”. We did, in fact, make this visit and it was perfect! So, with a few modifications, we selected the design. It was very helpful to be able to actually see a completed water feature to make the final decision to proceed.

A start date was selected and except for a few weather-related delays, the project started and was completed right on schedule. During the construction phase, it was apparent how meticulous Michael and Steve were about building the water feature. They even allowed me to do a lot of watching!

The project is complete, is beautiful and we are very, very pleased. Needless to say, we would highly recommend WDS to anyone interested in the many services they offer. You won’t be disappointed!!

Linda and Roger Johnston


November / December 2012 - " WDS was a pleasure to work with! Wayne designed a great landscape plan and my yard turned out exactly per his plan. The plan also greatly facilitated and expedited the ARB approval process.

Wayne's General Manager, Mike Wilkinson, did outstanding, artistic work, implementing the plan. I strongly recommend WDS landscape & Design for your design and installation needs."

John H. Blodgett / Vintage Oaks Subdivision


August / September 2011 - " From start to finish, an outstanding experience!

Wayne's design met all our requirements to include a interesting, low maintenance, xeriscape project and addressed drainage issue problems we had as well.

The crew was professional & dedicated to completing the job on time despite extreme weather conditions and a flooding situation caused by an outside agency.

Mike and Steve informed us of each step in the process and requested our input as the project progressed when appropriate.

We would DEFINETLY do business with WDS in the future ! "

Thanks. Brian & Pat Emerson


May 2011 - "We're very pleased with the finished product!

Wayne produced an excellent set of plans and laid out all the known costs up front.

Mike is 'Mr. Customer Service ', He and Steve did a great job making the plans turn out better than we hoped for.

The patio and walkway flagstone crew were excellent. They all care that you're very happy with the whole job."

Thanks -Roger & Patty Franklin


March/April 2011 - "Without reservation, we would recommend the design and landscaping services of WDS. Throughout the entire building process of our new house, the landscaping project was by far our best experience.

Wayne, Mike and Steve listened to our ideas and made great suggestions for plants, flower beds, and ways to blend our landscaping with our natural areas.

Perhaps best of all, they completed the project on time, on budget and to our complete satisfaction. They have returned to check the condition of the plants and irrigation and continue to be available for questions and consultation. By the time the project was completed we had developed a great business relationship with WDS.

We highly recommend WDS to prospective customers ! "

February/March 2011 - We just completed our 3rd (or fourth...) landscaping stage with WDS. They did a wonderful job on the idea I had in mind.

Wayne is a very cool guy and an expert on plants suitable for our area, ie, deer resistant, heat tolerant,etc. Mike and crew are on time, dependable and respectful. They can still work even when I continually talk to them.

My finished product is beautiful and I will continue to call on WDS for any landscaping design ideas."

Everything about WDS is praise worthy: answering our first call promptly, delivering ( in record time ) a wonderful plan and reasonable pricing for the number of plants; good looking, healthy & the hard work planting them all.

Our wishes were heard and translated into a perfect garden. Thank you, Wayne, Mike & Steve!“

Mickey and Jera Chaney


August 2010 - “ We want to thank WDS for the beautiful transformation made to our yard including landscape lighting. From start to finish, we witnessed a very organized and professional job performed by your workers. They obviously new what they were doing and did it very well. Mike and Steve were polite and conscientious and made sure we were happy with all aspects of the job.

We also loved our experience with Wayne of WDS. He listened to our likes and dislikes and designed a beautiful plan that transcended into a splendid yard.

To help accentuate the overall beauty; we added outdoor lighting to compliment the house and landscaping. We then noticed certain features of the house that we had not paid attention to before. The lighting is absolutely beautiful and we really love the new effect.

During the short period of time after our landscaping transformation, we have been receiving lots of positive compliments and people wanting to know who did the work.

We recommend WDS to everyone without hesitation or reservations ! Thanks, “

This has been an extremely professional & stress free experience. Wayne's landscape concept for us was beautifully presented on paper and is even more beautiful in reality ! There were no surprises in the process.

Mike is knowledgeable, informative, easy to communicate with and has great ideas. Both Mike & Ryan were fun to be around. Don't conclude your landscaping plans until you get a bid from these guys. They are amazing !

"LANDSCAPE and DESIGN" does not properly describe the service and skills of this Company. " CRAFTSMEN" is a better description of their work and personal service!

WDS is a first rate business. Wayne listened to my vision for my yard. He listened !!!

And he offered advice on my ideas. He suggested plants that would work in my yard. He made a great Mater Plan, we met, talked on the phone and e mailed during the entire project. He always answered my questions, returned every phone call and e mail and was a true pleasure to work with. His ideas and plans are unique. I highly recommend WDS. They are just really nice people!

Our first experience with WDS- but NOT our last! We were so impressed with the quick response to our initial inquiry, the bid, and the completion of the work itself. We thought the cost might be prohibitive, but it was not. Mike wilkinson was very professional in our dealings with him, and his rock work. We are VERY pleased and look forward to our next project with WDS.

November 2008
Landscaping has never been so much fun as it was working with WDS Landscape! The first time we met with Wayne and talked with him, I knew that he would be our choice. Wayne had us tell him what we wanted to see in our yard. We wanted plenty of evergreen plants along with a variety of colorful blooms. He really listened! Both Wayne and I love unique plants that aren’t found in every yard, and I was amazed at Wayne’s plant knowledge. We clicked on everything, but I wanted him to let his imagination go wild knowing that he would come up with some really cool plants. The result? An absolutely amazing landscaping plan that won’t be found anywhere else!!!

Wayne, Mike, and the crew are fantastic. Believe me, you won’t find a more caring, thoughtful, and enthusiastic landscaping company. They truly care about the job they do, the plants they install, and the customer’s happiness. If a sub-contractor is needed, Wayne will only recommend one that he completely trusts. To help save some money, he used as many of our original plants as he could. The yard was cleaned up daily which was wonderful. We couldn’t believe how fast everything moved. Within 2 weeks, our old plants were pulled out, a new mortared rock edge was installed, soil and plants were put in, the irrigation system was revamped, and mulch was spread out. In one word - AWESOME!

Our landscaping was installed in November, and even then it looked great. I can’t wait for the Spring when everything starts to bloom. I know that our jaws will drop every time we look at our yard and see something new blooming.

Our relationship with Wayne is one that I will always treasure. Thank you so much!

Our experience with WDS was great from start to finish. All of the time and hard work that the entire crew put in has definitely paid off. From the grass making our yard feel more like a "Real Yard" when we walk out, to the beautiful flowers and plants adding character. This makes our house look more like a home from an outdoor view. Everything looks gorgeous and we appreciate all that has been done. Mike and Wolf are very friendly to have around. We will call for future landscaping needs as well as recommend their services! Thank you!

We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone at WDS Landscape & Design for the fantastic job they did on our backyard pool area landscaping. We just couldn’t be happier with the job that was done. The design not only included the plants and colors we wanted immediately, but considered the growth patterns and sizes of plants years down the road.

Wayne took the time to get to know us and produced a beautiful design that was exactly what we wanted. Mike and the crew were punctual and professional. As the project progressed, they even suggested some improvements to the design that were just incredible. During the project, the worksite was kept clean and orderly. When completed, you couldn’t tell they had been there. Everyone at WDS Landscape was helpful and responsive to questions and accommodating to ideas for changes. AS the backyard work took shape, we were so impressed that we had them do some work in the front yard that really transformed the appearance of the house. We’ve had many comments on how nice the yard looks.

Wayne and his crew take a great deal of pride in what they do, and deservedly so. The design, the quality of workmanship, the plantings, every step of the project exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend WDS Landscape and Design to anyone and certainly won’t hesitate to call them for any future landscape work. Thanks guys!!

We had the pleasure of witnessing many other landscape projects done by WDS and always admired the workmanship from afar. The landscapes that we witnessed were beautiful upon installation, but once the plants were matured we could not believe the work or art that it bloomed into.

Now, we are in a new home and we did not hesitate in calling WDS to design our flower beds to make the exterior of our home beautiful. Words can not express how wonderful Wayne and Mike were during this process and we appreciate everything they have done. WDS not only builds a professional relationship with their clients but one that will last for years to come on many levels. We look forward to working with them again.

Wayne, Mike and the entire WDS crew have our hats off for a job done above and beyond.

We had been pleased with the results of our first phase that Wayne and his crew did for us putting in Sod and laying out the shape of our future flowerbeds. Wayne & Mike came over and went through our list of plants and helped us select a grouping that would allow the color we were looking for as well as being deer resistant. Wayne took the list and started his layout and design to arrange items based on mature growth height and how it would impact the look of our home as well as placing a balance of color throughout the beds.

His crew arrived as scheduled and the job was completed quicker than I anticipated and to a level far above my expectations. I was equally impressed by the cleanliness of the crew as when they finished all excess soil, containers and any loose debris were gone. I came home to a complete and very impressive looking landscape that has completely transformed the look of our home. In the few short days since it has been complete we have had numerous neighbors compliment us on our yard.

We so completely enjoyed working with Wayne on the project our only issue is finding more places on our lot to have him work his magic.

Wayne, Mike our many thanks

Wayne, Mike and their crew are wonderful to work with. We were not sure exactly what we wanted and called for a consultation. Wayne worked with us on our turf selection based on our needs and his crew was fast and careful with the install.

One of the things we liked best was the way they quickly answered all calls and emails we had with questions, we will use them again on future projects at our home.

Again thanks for the wonderful yard Wayne

"I had several deer in the yard last night, and it was the first time I've been able to watch them around the new plants. They were so funny. Each one of them came up and sniffed...snorted..and walked away. Yea! It's working. Instead they just stayed on the lawn."

July 2007

We could not be more pleased with the work that WDS has done for us. Wayne and the rest of the crew were very professional and easy to work with. They are very creative and knowledgable. They simply love what they do. The design and installation of our home landscaping job exceeded our expectations. Even with the awful weather we have had this summer, they still managed to complete everything on time.

I highly recommend using them to design a residential property for you. This is our first home, and they did an excellent job making the exterior beautiful for us. As with every new homeowner, we were working on a budget. Wayne was very accommodating on working with us to get everything we wanted within that budget. They really listened to us. Wayne and Mike treated us like friends during the entire process making this as worry free as possible. They took notes on what we wanted out of this project, what plants we liked, helped us pick out the stone material, and involved us in the process every step of the way. They also put us in touch with a great company to complete our irrigation and knew a wonderful mason to install our absolutely beautiful stone patio. They even listened to all of our concerns about having a low maintenance yard, and they gave us just that. You will not regret choosing them.

We want to thank Wayne, Mike and everyone else who took part in making our home so beautiful. We look forward to working with you again in the near future.

WDS Landscape & Design is a First Class operation, Working with Wayne Whittier and his associates was a pleasure. The design Wayne created enhanced the appearance of our 27 year old home, and provides color with plants the deer do not choose to eat. I would highly recommend the use of his services. You will be pleased.

When I first contacted WDS Landscape & Design, I was impressed from the moment I talked to Wayne. His professionalism, calm demeanor, and creative ideas gave me confidence his company would do a fantastic job landscaping my home. In a timely manner, Wayne met with me, presented great ideas, and rapidly formulated a plan. He has a great sense of design and recommended interesting, deer resistant plants to complete my project.

My ultimate goal was to soften and update the landscaping across the front and side of my home by creating colorful, low-maintenance flowerbeds. Wayne and his crew successfully accomplished my goal by designing beautiful flowerbeds containing a variety of plants that attract hummingbirds and butterflies…some arrived before the plants were even in the ground.

Wayne and his crew were courteous, respectful, hard working, and extremely knowledgeable. Their wealth of knowledge and willingness to share information helped me learn about the plants and how to care for them. The men were efficient, enthusiastic, and completed the work in a timely manner. Their work ethics, attention to details, and ability to maintain a clean and professional work site constantly amazed me.

Thank you for making this experience very pleasant and stress free. I appreciate everything and look forward to doing business with your company again in the near future.

Wayne and Mike of WDS Landscape & Design have done an incredible job working with us and our set budget. They LISTENED to our likes and dislikes as far as plant types; they helped us plan the installation of an irrigation system and grass. Their creative, beautifully designed flowerbeds make our new house feel like a home! Wayne & Mike treated us with the utmost professionalism. When they promised paperwork,start times, returned phone calls etc., they followed through. These guys are very considerate as well! Mike was aware of our son's nap time and planned his noisey work accordingly around the naps.Wow! Lastly, WDS has exceeded our expectations on every aspect of the project! Thanks guys !

They have admirable character and are very professional. Attention to detail and sensitive to client. Meticulous, organized and very neat. Seemed we were on the same page from beginning to end. We were very pleased with the finished result and look forward to enjoying it as it evolves over time.

WDS did a superb job of transforming our rocky, cactus and cedar covered property into a landscape that really compliments our house. Thanks Wayne, Mike & the rest of the crew.
Mike & Lorrie Murphy
Wayne turned my yard from dust, weeds and rocks into an oasis of beauty. The fountain and pond are more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. The landscaping around my home is perfect and adds the right touch the house needed to look finished. Wayne’s professionalism far exceeded my expectations as he stayed on top of the process. His suggestions were invaluable and right on. Wayne works like an artist creating a masterpiece. His attention to detail is part of his character, which by the way, is his greatest strength. I have never worked with someone more professional and with complete integrity as I have Wayne and his crew. I highly recommend WDS for your job. Trust me, the money you spend will be well worth it.
Dawn Triche
Our experience with WDS was superb ! The attention to detail given by Wayne and his crew to our individual project was so intense, that one would have thought WDS was only working on our property. Every phone call, every fax, every e-mail was immediately responded to without delay. Completion of the project was one day ahead of schedule and the only fluctuation from the original quote was due to an addition on our end........ Thanks Wayne!
Luis & Marisela Guillen

Wayne: I was out in my yard this week picking up leaves that had blown in from across the street when I was struck again with what an awesome job your firm did in landscaping our yard. Even in the winter gloom, I can see a symmetry and beauty in the landscape. I want to thank you and your staff. Your men were courteous, hard working, and always took time to answer my questions or teach me about one of the plants you had chosen. I have confidence that my landscaping will continue to add value to my home. I especially would like to thank your site preparation person. He listened to my concerns regarding drainage and when we had the deluge this fall, we did not have the flooding in the front yard that I had experienced before your group put in the landscaping. I am greatly relieved that my problem has been solved. I can hardly wait until this spring to see my yard come alive again with the color you've provided! I'm sorry I have waited so long to say "Thank You!"
Deb Eisenbrown
"We wanted a front yard with minimal maintenance (no grass) but a lot of curb appeal. Coupled with that requirement, our yard posed a drainage challenge. WDS listened to what we wanted, analyzed the drainage needs, and created a beautiful and useful solution. And to top all that, the staff was wonderful to work with. Thanks."
Diane and John Neahr
" You have a great crew & they did a wonderful job. I am VERY pleased with the flower beds and your landscape design."
Annie M. Price
Working with the people at WDS has been a real pleasure. Their design is beautiful and the work crew was knowledgeable and professional. They did the 'little things' to make our experience stress free and they made our landscaping project a complete success. We highly recommend WDS to anyone looking for quality landscape and design services.

There are two types of contractors in my book. Bad and worse. WDS was a pleasant exception to that opinion.

We hired WDS not because they were the cheapest, but because they checked out as a company that delivered innovative, thoughtful landscapes. Wayne and Mike talked with us to determine what was important to us, what our landscape maintenance desires were, and what budget we were looking at.

They delivered a detailed proposal carefully laying out each aspect of the plan with exact costs. Mike did an excellent job of delivering a set of plans that showed us what we were getting with a detailed key of the proposed plants. This was an expensive phase of an ongoing project and they were conscience of my need to maintain my budget.

Bill and his crew did a great job. He understood that this was someone's home, not a faceless project. He and the crew were neat, clean and quick. They picked up each day and kept all of their equipment in a designated area. They were professional and courteous.

The landscape lighting is simply more than we expected. And we expected a lot. WDS gave us great accent light without overpowering the landscape. The light is subtle and soft, yet gives us the opportunity to sit out way after dark and enjoy the peace and quiet.

After the sale, Mike stayed in touch to see how things were going. WDS went way above and beyond in honoring their warranty.

Lots of people can do your landscape. What is rare today is a company of any sort that follows through from proposal to delivery. WDS delivered what they promised, when they promised, and at the price they promised. When I start the next phase of my project, they will get the first look.

OK, maybe there are three types of contractors; Bad, worse, and excellent.
Ron Defries - Spring Branch
"From the initial meeting with Wayne and Mike, to the completion of our landscape and water feature, we could not have been more pleased. Everything was handled in a professional manner; and all that was promised was delivered- and then some! The crew of Bill, Ralphie, and Baker did an excellent job. Each day the site was picked up and cleaned up, which I really liked. Once the job was completed, all the drives were pressure washed and put back to their condition prior to the start of the project; maybe even a little better. The project was completed on schedule, and on budget, and looks absolutely fantastic. What more could you want? !! Thanks for everything"
Danny & Micaela Zoeller
"We want to thank Wayne & Mike for their professionalism and courtesy. They really did a superb job and were very accommodating. We relied on their advice and the finished product really made a difference in what we set out to accomplish. Thank you so much !"
Sharon & Mark Hampton
"WDS Landscaping and Wayne's team spent a great deal of time figuring out how to do the landscaping we wanted at a price we could afford. They truly bent over backwards to make us comfortable. The job they did was spectacular and fast. Furthermore, they went way beyond the termsof the agreement, trimming the yard to make the whole scene fit in with their new landscaping. I'd recommend WDS to either commercial or residential accounts. They are the best!"
Jim and Cary Skinner
"We had an AWESOME experience with WDS! Wayne, Mike and crew worked in a timely, professional manner, and even did follow up visits. Our landscaping project has received wonderful compliments from family, friends, and even our Homeowners Association Board! It was very obvious that their professional, as well as personal, goal was to gain our trust and ensure our complete satisfaction. WDS most certainly reached their goal and we look forward to doing business with them again in the future. Thanks WDS!"
Mark and Yvonne Mullings
A most excellent job! Wayne was able to capture the look we wanted to complement our new home. The crew did a superb job installing the plantings and mulch, as well as doing some extensive bobcat work on the property. Michael's expert touch with the landscape lighting brought the project all together.
Bill and Sue Sprole
"Very happy with your work and our new lawn. Thanks"
Eugene and Juanie Campbell
"We went from rocky dirt to a beautiful green lawn. Our children absolutely LOVE it. Now if they would mow it for us! Thank You"
Dan and Debra Parker
"We have had a pleasant experience with WDS. The owner and his staff are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. My grass is the best and I love it. My flower beds are just right and creative. Everything WDS did for us shows so beautifully from the road."
Marianne Lewis
"WDS re-landscaped my home, front and back, recently. Their choice of flowers and plants is very pleasing. Their work ethic is not only good, but they are all very pleasant. Their attention to detail is unusual in this day and age. Over all, we are happy we chose WDS to do our landscaping work."
K.L. and Margaret DeMaet
"Wayne and his crew are professional, prompt and great to work with!"
Buck Guinn
"We have been extremely pleased about our relationship with WDS Landscape & Design. The design plans blew us away with the detailing and professionalism. The crew of workers were very careful of our property and we appreciated the extra consideration. In closing, we would highly recommend WDS for a beautiful water feature and outside fire pit.
Betty Dickens and Carl
It has been a pleasure having WDS work on our landscape. We appreciate the professional yet personable way we were treated. Wayne gave us his undivided attention and surprised us by remembering and incorporating into the design our favorites. All of our numerous questions were answered promptly and honestly.

Becky and Mike, thanks for the phone calls reminding us of many details. The crew members were courteous, clean and helpful. The work site was left clean and tidy at the end of each day.

WDS has done a great job for us and we would recommend the company without hesitation.
Bog and Maria
Our ponds are a fantastic complement to our new home. They have prompted rave reviews from all who've seen them, and they are a constant source of enjoyment to the two of us. Being around the WDS crew throughout the entire construction process was a real pleasure. Each of the guys obviously takes a lot of pride in his work, and it's hard work. They are really good at what they do.

The planting in the beds around the ponds and at the front of the house looks great and still shows a lot of color even now in January. We look forward to watching it flourish as the weather warms up. Thank for your good work.
Bob & Carolyn Fleming
We are really pleased with the transformation of our yard! WDS seems to have picked the perfect plants for our home. We especially enjoy the butterflies and hummingbirds which have already discovered the plants and blooms. WDS was very flexible in working with our schedule and availability. We would use them again for sure.
Tom and Jennifer Gallaway
Where do I start?! To put it simply - my yard was plain and didn't make sense in most places. Now-well, I have a little piece of heaven! It started as my idea. I gave WDS all my wants and I got more than I imagined. The work was efficient and professional. My yard is and will always be the talk of the neighborhood.
Helen Norvell
"From a "Lot" to an established yard - complete with a sprawling green lawn, flower beds and natural rock & soil berms. All done in a matter of days.Your creativity and use of natural vegetation - native to our area makes it all look like we've lived here for years! Thanks Wayne."
Jim & Sandy Hine
"We love everything Wayne designed, and are really pleased at the native Texas grasses and how they fit into the natural setting. The butterflies and hummingbirds are an added delight! Wayne and all the guys were so easy and great to work with - we're ready to do more!"
Gary & Mary Sue Cheatham
"My experience with WDS has been most satisfactory in all respects. The landscape is not only beautiful to me, but has brought an unusual number offavorable comments from people passing by."
Joe R. Neeley
"Many compliments have been given on the profusion of color all year long. WDS came to me highly recommended and I have been ever pleased by the final results. The service is prompt and with a smile. Thanks, Wayne, you are truly an artist!"
Judith M. Wuensch
"Wayne Whittier and his entire staff delivered and performed all aspects of their contract requirements in a professional and timely manner. I have used them on two different projects around my home and have plans to use them more. I am in the purchasing and contracting profession and feel I received more value than I contracted for each time. I recommend WDS highly."
Vick Garmon
"I choose WDS Landscape & Design after researching and interviewing approximately six different companies in the New Braunfels area. WDS was not the cheapest, although they were not the most expensive of the group. We chose WDS based on their professionalism, their knowledge of plant selection, their willingness to educate us on why recommendations were made, and ultimately our expectation that we would get a fair job at a fair price.

As Mother Nature tested our scheduling they remained proactive; keeping us informed every step of the way. Wayne lived up to his commitment that we would be pleasantly surprised with the outcome. We had great coverage of plants in the beds; good sprinkler coverage of our sod and the company did a great job of supplying us with good quality grass that was place evenly and with care. In addition, Wayne has continued to respond to our requests and questions about the care of our plants and sod.

I have always believed that a company does well to "under promise and over deliver." Our experience with WDS, and more specifically Wayne and his workers, was one I would not hesitate to recommend to others. They were very professional and treated us with respect. I feel that Wayne exceeded my expectations for a job well done!"
Mark & Kristi Squires
"Very creative and responsive to questions and concerns. Quick & efficient & friendly."
Laurie Simpson
"A local home builder recommended WDS for a "small" job. We were instantly impressed with Wayne's professionalism, courtesy and timeliness. He took our ideas and had an estimate quickly. The results were nothing less that amazing. We were awestruck by the natural appearance of the walkways, steps and patio. It was as if it had been there for centuries. We love the job WDS did and would recommend them to anyone."
Scott & Westmoreland
"From the first discussion, it was clear to me that WDS could help create a landscape that was aesthetically beautiful to the existing environment which matched the feel of our home. WDS took the time to listen and deliver a landscape that exceeded my expectations from the beginning to end within my given budget. Thanks so much!!."
Mike Ybarra
"My husband and I have known Wayne for many years. He is an artist, a lover of nature, and a perfectionist in all he undertakes. When you put this together in the landscaping business, you have "ambience" for the outdoors. When I drive up to my home, the first thing I see is the textures and colors that have been harmoniously assembled creating another living space unique to our home. I love to walk outside and discover the jewels placed here and there, colors and shades playing off one another, and enjoy God's creation."
Jana Henry
"WDS is great...they get in and get the work done in a very timely manner."
David Pfeuffer
"WDS Landscape & Design was very good to work with when we decided to landscape our new yard. They had an excellent variety of native plants for us to choose from. We were very pleases with the end results and Wayne was very good to work with. We have had many compliments on our yard!"

"Great to work with and do what they say they will do."
