I have known Eli Houser and his family in a business and professional relationship since 1993. During this time he has proved to be very well educated in matters of landscaping and maintenance including a diverse knowledge in horticulture science.
During this time i have had the opportunity to employ Mr. Houser on many occasions. My most pleasant experiences have been to appreciate his excellent manners, dedication, management and especially his creative ideas and skills. It is very unusual in the nursery and landscaping businesses to find a person of his caliber and education background.
Mr. Houser and his company EarthScapes were selected in 2001 during a competitive competition to provide the maintenance and landscaping services for Somerby at Jones Farm. We wanted a licensed contractor because this is a very complicated property/campus to maintain. His acceptance of this contract was complicated because during the previous two years two different contractors had not performed professionally. More importantly they did not provide any preventive maintenance procedures. This resulted in increase costs to Somerby for time, labor, materials, and equipment.
It has been a sincere pleasure to work with EarthScapes and I hope the relationship is long term.
