It all starts with a GOOD design/plan-  - design fees start @$1500, but initial design consultation is freeeeeeeee! :)

Words can't describe the pure joy one gets from creating a really cool design that exceeds the clients expectation- - no matter how many times I do that (& I've been doing it a LONG time) It's still a rush  each & every time. I have a saying- -  -" there are no good jobs, just good clients"-  -& I've been blessed with some really good clients over the years !!!  We've done 15' x 15' interior atriums up to  a 1.8 million $ project on two lots in Pelican Hill. This is such a joy,I can't imagine ever fully retireing.

  • Project Date: May 2015 Project Price: $10,000 - $49,999

    We were refurbishing our 30 year old patio and pool decking. We also wanted to replace the pool tile which was the same age with something that was interesting, tasteful and complimentary with the new deck and landscaping.. ..We spoke to a number of pool companies about what we wanted and requested they present some ideas. All they had to offer was tile in one color or the other with the occasional triangle of a different color from place to place. We were talking to a lady in our church about our frustration and she suggest we talk to Bill Rose. Bill reviewed the plans for the pool deck , listened to our ideas concerning the pool tile, took measurement s and said he would present us with a design in a few days. I thought he was a little pricy but given our frustration with the pool contractors decided to give him a try. True to his word he had not only sketched out a design but had also obtained tile samples and modeled the design on a white board. The design was stunning and exactly what we had in mind. Bill is very good at color coordination, has an excellent imagination and is a stickler for detail as was evidenced by the drawings and bill of materials he created for the tile installers. While I thought him to be a bit pricey in the beginning after the fact his price turned out to be more than fair. B Rose and Associates does outstanding work on schedule and within budget and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

    roject Date: March 2018 Project Price: $50,000 - $100,000 Finished product exceeded hopes and just in time for summer. Our homes’s curb appeal went from 0 to 10. The company Bill chose to do the work was outstanding. Bill saw the project through from his design to the finished product. His design was clean and maximized our space. If we had a bigger budget - could have done much more... but the scaled down version is beautiful.

  • Jason Berry Relationship: Client Project Date: May 2018

    Project Price Range: $50,000 - $100,000 Bill is a true master of his art and a pleasure to work with. If you want somebody to just take your orders and build you a plan, Bill is not your guy. If you want a seasoned professional that will converse with you, offer alternative viewpoints, point out pitfalls proactively, and collaboratively develop exceptionally creative solutions, then Bill will make you incredibly happy. He is honest and straightforward as the day is long. After listening to me and my wife describe what we wanted, he took an extensive look at my yard, played with our budget a bit, and said there's no way that's going to work. This was before we had any agreement to move forward. True metal. Well, we put our heads together, and found a very happy middle ground that worked all around. This process was a complete pleasure. In the meantime, I had checked with several contractors and, turns out, Bill was completely correct and his numbers were dead accurate (for quality work), but his conclusion was reached in about 8 minutes ... everyone else took a few days. Now that I have my plans in hand, I can say that working with Bill was absolutely great and I'd call him up again in a minute when I have another project. I strongly recommend Bill to anybody.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I was called to a project to give a quote on an existing plan the client had paid for but didn't feel comfortable with the designer/contrtactor. The owner asked my opinion of the design & I cringed & told him the truth-  -" if you pay $100,000 (+) to have that installed, you will be depressed everytime time you drive up to your home" .They wanted a low water garden in their front yard w/ drought tolerant plantings. They got a "pot" fountain with a non-sensical dry stream bed. We fixed it & they are very happy!!!
