Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Generally customers contact us, either by phone (318-453-6274) or by comming by our garden center at Ark-La-Tex Water Gardens, 9999 Mansfield Road, Keithville, LA. We then make an appointment and go out to their property and do a "take off". We measure and make rought sketches and take snapshots of the work we are going to do. From there we go to the computer and prepare a detailed drawing and estimate for the work desired. Then we have another meeting with the customer and make any changes that we need to. Then the fun starts and we create the outdoor paradise that you've always dreamed of!!!
