We hired Ian to remove, redesign and install the landscaping for our entire overgrown lot. Working with Ian was easy. With a list of our family’s needs and a few images of our preferred style, Ian and planned a low-maintenance, drought-tolerant yard that adults, kids and pets can enjoy. Ian coordinated all of work, including the construction of a detached office. It was a large project and Ian’s crew was on-site for a few months. They were polite and professional, and it is obvious that they take pride in their work. Given the positive experience, we called Ian again a few years later to repurpose a small area of the backyard after our needs changed. Once again, we were happy with the results and the experience. Despite many years of kids and dogs playing in the backyard, the plants that Ian installed have somehow survived and thrived, and it remains our favorite space to spend time. Should we need landscaping design/build services in the future, we will contact Ian.

Ian and his team converted our concrete bunker of a back yard to an extension of our living room. His team did an amazing job incorporating wood, steel, lighting, and plants to create a cozy/modern living space. Great communication through the project.

We recently partnered with Ian Moore Design on an extensive project to replace and store an existing hardscape left unfinished by the previous homeowners. Ian commissioned us to assist with the refurbishment of a custom steel pergola, which required retractable shade. Ian and his team were a pleasure to work alongside - very professional, studious and responsive throughout the project. He asked great questions, was open to feedback and together we delivered an end product that left the new homeowners ecstatic. As their many Houzz reviews suggest, they can seamlessly take a project from start to finish, appropriately managing all the road bumps between. We had a great experience and look forward to future collaborations.

TLDR: Love his work so much we've done two projects with him, including a recently completed transformation of a steep backyard into an incredible, relaxing space. Very highly recommend. We've just finished our second project with Ian, and just like the first, are thrilled. A few years ago, Ian turned the tiny backyard of our first house into a relaxing space with room for our two toddlers to play. Our new house is built into a steep incline, and Ian took on the difficult task of creating true usable space. In addition to softening the concrete pad and retaining wall uneducated behind our house, here added an amazing elevated deck and an incredible treehouse platform for the kids. Our space had been doubled, the backyard went from unattractive and cold to warm and inviting and we could not be happier. The quality of the work is outstanding, Ian's creativity solved some imposing challenges, and he has regularly checked in to make sure we're happy. Cannot recommend Ian and his team highly enough.

Overall we have found Ian Moore Design incredibly difficult to work with and completely unresponsive. Scope of work: Exterior BBQ area Initial Consult: The initial consult was well done. Ian was able to see our space and gave us some great feedback and advice on our project potential. From the meeting, we moved forward with a "paid design" contract. Paid Design: We contracted with Ian Moore Design to provide landscape design, architecture diagrams, and a cost estimate. After some initial delay (due to Ian's injury) Ian had an associate out to formally measure our project. Weeks following, with some prodding on our part, Ian gave us some preliminary designs and scheduled a zoom call for feedback. After that meeting, Ian promised an updated design with cost estimates within a week. That was over 11 weeks ago. And now we can't get any response back from him. For the first few weeks, Ian would respond saying "he was working on next steps and will get something next week" but as these weeks turned into months we have gotten nowhere. We have tried calling and sending email but Ian has become totally unresponsive and to date has NOT COMPLETED the scope of work he agreed to complete and one we have paid for already. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND NOT USING this firm. We will pursue this with the BBB and see where that goes.
