Client Reviews

“I cannot more highly recommend working with Emily Aring and KaBloom. She was a joy to work with throughout the whole process from the beginning planning stages to the final touches. We have a tendency to change our minds a lot and I was really impressed with Emily’s ability to adapt to our changes, and did it all with a great big smile on her face.

She incorporated all of our thoughts and the lay of our land into a beautiful design at the entryway of our home. She is reliable, honest, thoughtful, and has an amazing knowledge of plants. I have planted many ‘deer resistant’ plants that have been devoured by deer, but not a single leaf has been nibbled in the area she planted.

 Working with KaBloom was so wonderful, but the proof is in the product which is absolutely stunning. We have received so many compliments since we hired Emily and now I can’t wait to hire her again to landscape more areas around our home!”

“Emily Aring is a gardener’s gardener, she knows and understands the specific needs of all the plants in her care.  She is a sure and fearless pruner and the results are impressive.  She is cheerful and hard working and above all she has horticulture in her blood.  I am delighted with her, my garden has improved greatly with her diligent care—and I’m very particular about my plants and who touches them.  I can’t recommend her highly enough.”  Hazel O’brien, March 2012

“Needless to say, if it wasn’t for you and your company my home on Mt. Baker Road would have never been in the Orcas Island Garden Club’s garden tour in 2011.  The work you have done over the years really took shape last year and I’ve been told again and again how well we fared on the 2011 tour.  What an honor to be chosen for the garden tour and what a pleasure to be able to live with the beauty you brought to my home.

 As for Orcas Net, what a fantastic landscape you have created for us to work amongst.  Many times a year I receive compliments from community members who appreciate the beauty you have contributed to the commercial part of our village.
 Thank you so much for all the beauty and pleasure you and your staff have brought into our lives!”  Bill Wulff, March 2012
“We have had a great experience working with Emily.  She did an exceptional job on our commercial landscaping project, on time and on budget.  She has worked for us on many home projects as well.  We would highly recommend her for any of your landscaping needs.”  Clayton and Trina Olson, March 2012
