He redid the landscaping for my front and backyard. He's a landscape architect who lives in the area and is very reasonable and reliable. He is very hands-on and has staff who can do small projects at a very reasonable cost. Peter fixed up my slate walkway last year. Sanjaya Hettihewa 2/25/10

He has painted for us for several years. He (a) knows his materials and (b) is quite meticulous not only in terms of the paint job, but also not tracking mud on the floors, spattering paint, etc. Barbara Ingersoll 3/20/10

I was really pleased with the initial assessment of what needed to be done and how each thing would be handled, the price, the top quality materials used, and the actual execution of the job (scheduled during our extended period with no electricity). This is the best painting job we have had in the 16 years we have lived here. Gwen Lewis 8/6/10
