My wife and I purchased a property in 2008 with the purpose of having a retreat to entertain family and guests. We had ideas for outdoor improvements but wanted some professional help with our plans. We met Si, and he worked with us to create a Master Plan for the property. He then created a budget, and managed the entire construction process. The work has come out beautifully, and within budget. We’ve been working with Si on various projects on the property for the last 3 years. It is obvious to us that Si loves what he does, and takes great pride in providing an outstanding design and construction service.

Si worked with us on every aspect of our project. We had an idea of what we wanted to do and how much we wanted to spend. Si kept us within our budget and shared his ideas with us. His work included a pool redesign, deck design, landscaping, outdoor bbq, firepit, and overall re-design of our entire backyard. He was personable, professional, and completed each task efficiently and on-time. He was able to suggest high quality work at a cost that worked within our budget. We would highly recommend Si for his expertise in his field.

I have worked with Si on various projects over the last eight years. Si has been responsible for the design and construction management of large scale improvement projects that have greatly enhanced the quality of the communities that I own and manage. Si’s professionalism is notable. He pays close attention to the client’s design preferences, and to the project budget. Si has met or exceeded my expectations each time I’ve engaged his services.

We again want to thank you Si for the amazing job you did on our construction project. We love our pool design, new bocci ball court, concrete and of course the landscape. We have had many compliments on our yard. We appreciate your work ethics and your dedication to go above and beyond to see that our project was done in excellence. Although our beautiful yard speaks for itself, we are more than happy to pass along your name and phone number to all of our family and friends. We love your work!

Si Edman’s vision to turn our back pasture into a backyard oasis was excelled only by the end result. What started out as an acre of weeds, concrete slabs and several randomly placed fruit and olive trees is now a stunning lawn, pool and spa, concrete patio and wrap around decking just begging for a wine country party or casual weekend of lounging with nature. It was a pleasure to work on this project with Si and we cannot say enough about his professionalism and attention to detail. Si was on site for all of the initial phases of construction, orchestrating the coordinated efforts of all the trades involved, and was always available to answer questions and trouble shoot any problems before they happened. Not only did Si bring this enormous project in on budget but also on time, which was particularly important since we were holding our outdoor wedding here a mere three months to the date after demolition and construction began. Needless to say the wedding was beautiful and we are looking forward to spending many hours enjoying our property and would highly recommend Si and Earth Design Group to anyone.
