Reilly Designs Customer Reviews

It's spectacular. It's magical. He transformed it incredibly. Before, we had a pretty sweet garden from May to October; but the rest of the year, it was a moonscape. Now, people go out in the garden in January, and it's beautiful. This is the first time we've had a garden 24/7. — Paulette Ryan, client

This house had been appraised before, and they'd put, 'no yard.' After that (the garden installation), it became a highlight: 'magnificent garden.' So, it went from nothing, to a plus. — Charlie Hamilton, client

Two things: first of all, he's very approachable and easy to work with, just a pleasure. And he shows up with the the perfect plant for that spot; and it's unique. So, there's a trust factor there. I leave it to him, his creative whims; and to me, that's fun. — Jeff Katz, client

It's always been kind of a showpiece. They (customers) go right over, and are always saying, 'we didn't even know this was here.' There are a couple plants that always get their attention. — Charlie Hamilton, Paradise Bay

Let's say there're guests coming in. We've got one week to make this place look fantastic...and he turns this place into a paradise in a matter of days... He's so easy; there isn't any uphill. — Judith Stern, estate caretaker

Scott's very good and very methodical. He's also nice to his workers, and that's important to me. I gave him carte blanche with the property. That's the only way I like to work with people. But you have to trust someone to do that. — Joyce

Number one, I like him as an individual; I think he's honest and forthright. Responsible. Responsive. He shows up when he says he will, and he's very knowlegable. — Bruce Potter, client

I wanted someone who could give me something I wanted—which was smelly flowers...I'm in love with it; it's so female. — Larry Zaroff, M.D.
