We're writing to share the amazing experience we've had with Farallon Gardens! We hired Mathew approximately one year ago to do a couple landscaping projects for our home in the Berkeley Hills. The projects involved replacing several areas of old, overgrown plants with grasses and succulents to give those areas a clean, fresh appearance.

When we engaged Mathew for these projects, he came up with an excellent vision and a cohesive plan for re-designing our landscape. As he shared his vision with us, he was also careful to listen to our ideas and aesthetics and fold them into the overall plan.

We live on a quiet street in the hills where many people bike or walk. We are always receiving compliments about our yard from people walking by when we happen to be outside enjoying our yard.

We have several more projects planned for other parts of our property and are looking forward to having Mathew redesign those areas.

If you are looking for an outstanding, artistic landscape design, we most enthusiastically recommend Mathew and Farallon Gardens for your project!

Love my Alameda garden. Mathew has great knowledge of plants, a vision about your space... AND he listens to you. His easy going but responsible personality makes working with him a low stress event. Did a great job on my drought resistant garden - plants and trees. Two+ years in, things are looking good. Does a fine job on maintenance as well.

Just want to add to the chorus of praise for Mat. He completely redesigned and replanted our front yard, and 6 months later, it is looking even better all the time as the plants grow in. He is great to work with, super professional, and cost-conscious. Highly recommended!

Mathew and his crew have been back to maintain my wonderful garden twice. Like I said earlier it is low maintenance. He's added a couple of really cool succulents in the front that I love. Also some large potted plants in the back. Yay!

Mathew is a true artist. He did a wonderful job transforming my unattended backyard into a landscape deserving of display in Sunset Magazine. I was very impressed with his combination of a superb aesthetic and a vast knowledge of plants, shrubs and hard scape. Since our first meeting, Mathew has taken on the project as his own and has continued to work at transforming our small garden into a paradise of color and shape with areas for dining and entertaining as well as other areas for reading, working and quiet thought. In addition, he is very sensitive not only to his clients ideas but also on their pocketbook. He has translated my thoughts into a real experience. I could not be happier this Mathew and his terrific work!

After researching a few landscapers, I had Mat come by and give me a consult. Not only is he amazingly knowledgeable, super friendly and punctual, he also gave me the most competitive bid! He is honest and gives practical advice when you need it, which has not been the case with other landscapers I've worked with. I am so excited with what Mat has done with my front yard. He uses the color of plants like a painter and really understands complementary color theory. He is the east bay's best kept secret, but not for long!! THANK YOU MAT!!

This will be short and sweet - Met Mathew through a good friend and I had him work on my patio garden. I continue to be in bewildered awe with the beautiful work he did to it. YELP should start giving out 6 star ratings as he truly deserves it.
