Testimonials for Terry Sims, The Garden Artist, LLC 

"Terry designed an outdoor living area that surpassed my expectations. It was important to her to understand my style and goals, she listened and created my outdoor sanctuary. My elevated gardens, green screen, natural rock fire ring and sitting area, water feature, pergola and dining area are perfect for entertaining and relaxing. Her passion for landscape architecture was infectious and I found myself thoroughly enjoying the creative process and every step of construction. Even more important was her high standard of integrity and follow through on my project. Thank you Terry for making my backyard dreams come true!"

"Terry Sims, otherwise known as the Garden Artist did an outstanding job in transforming our rarely used outdoor space into a backyard oasis. Her beautiful renderings of what would become a stone patio and pond with a pergola made it easy to see how much we would enjoy our new yard. Her firm knowledge for choosing plants in the landscape complemented the hardscape nicely. She is hardworking, a pleasure to work with, meticulous in attention to detail and made sure that we were happy with the project throughout all phases. She was also always available for questions or concerns and followed up in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Terry Sims for any landscape project and plan on having her help us with phase two of our landscape needs in the future."

My husband and I hired Terry Sims, owner of The Garden Artist, to landscape our SE Boise Yard. She provided all the services from the full design thru installation. We had absolutely no design capabilities of our own and were grateful for the beautiful design she came up with. Coming home each day during the installation was a treat! Her follow thru was superb and she took care of the details as if the yard were her own. My yard is now a showpiece and we are so proud of it. I recommend Terry with the highest regards. She is a master at the design and wonderful to work with. ”

"From the moment I met Terry, we completely clicked! She listened when we told her the things we wanted for our yard and came up with a design beyond our expectations. She included us throughout the whole process and we worked well as a team to bring it all together. I admire her vision, her designs & the creativity & uniqueness of her plans. She designed a beautiful garden that we are enjoying and will continue to enjoy for many years to come!"

"I have known Terry Sims, owner of The Garden Artist, for over 20 years, first meeting her when we were both members of the Ameri- can Business Women ’ s Association. Through the years I have known Terry, she has always been a sincere and caring person, with high moral standards, both in her personal life as well as her profess- sional life. When we built our new home a few years ago, we knew that The Garden Artist is who we would be calling when it came time to landscape. Terry did not let us down. At the onset, she met with us and carefully listened to our ideas. As she developed our landscaping plan, she provided additional suggestions. She was very easy to work with and was always cognizant of our budget. If something did not go quite right – she corrected it – at her expense. We have had Terry return every year as we continue to enhance our yard, and she continues to treat us like we are an important customer – no matter how large or how small the job may be. I hold Terry in the highest regard, both personally and professionally, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to work with someone that is honest and trustworthy, easy to work with, and is overall a great business- woman. I would gladly take calls at any time from proposed clients who are considering The Garden Artist for their landscaping design needs."

"We were very fortunate to become acquainted with Terry Sims (The Garden Artist, LLC ) last year just before we decided to improve the appearance of our back yard. We told Terry that we wanted some ideas but planned to perform the work ourselves. She completed the plan in a timely manner and also provided us with ideas as to us actually performing the work. Her plan involved relocating an existing flagstone patio and adding a flagstone path, planting numerous shrubs, plants and flowers and planting a large tree. Terry also accompanied us to the vendors and helped choose the best items. Along with her design talent, we are extremely pleased with her professionalism, good nature, and willingness to answer our many questions as we proceeded with the work. We highly recommend Terry for your landscaping needs."

To Members of the Garden Artist, LLC Team:

Bart and I would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for the outstanding work on our backyard makeover project. Starting from the first class advisory services that Terry Simsrendered us, throughout this “first phase plus” of our landscaping plans, to the professionalism and demonstrated passion to do the best possible job in support of their customer; her team is experienced and dedicated landscape professionals. Our neighbors and friends are also impressed with the work that has been done, and especially the artistry and flow of the chosen plants and rock architectures. We have probably given at least 12 tours of our backyard since the project was started and continue to get inquiries from individuals. We are definitely very happy with the work performed to date in your combined team efforts in assisting us in building a peaceful backyard sanctuary and place that we feel we can really relax and unwind after a busy work week. So we would like to express our appreciation to all of you for a “job well done” and looking forward to working with your team in future project efforts.

"It has been our pleasure to work with The Garden Artist on two large projects over the past 3 years. Terry Sims has been wonderful to work with, we truly appreciate her expertise, her vision, her flexibility, and how she demonstrated that she cared about “us” and “our project”. Terry took the time to listen to what our vision was for our land- scape. She did a wonderful job on creating a four season design that is beautiful, hardy and very low maintenance. She staged the plan based on our needs, allowing us to do some of the work ourselves, demonstrating how much she cared for us as individuals. Terry truly has a passion for what she does and who she works with. It is evident from the first time you talk with her. We absolutely loved working with her and her team and highly recommend her for any project, from revitalizing a small corner in your yard to a total design renovation. Her vision and expertise will amaze you!"

"Terry Sims of The Garden Artist LLC was asked to do my front yard so that plants would grow properly in the summer of 2011. She had great ideas which were agreeable to me and then went the extra mile. She has returned many times to be sure the new plants were thriving. If they were not, they were just replaced. Terry is very proud of her work and has excellent reason to be! Through the course of her work at my home, she and her crew became personal friends to me. I look forward to doing business with her in the future. I fully recommend Terry to anyone considering improving the appearance of their home and making their landscaping more comfortable for themselves."

Judy Weidner, Surprise Valley Subdivision, Boise 

Dear Ms. Sims,

I want to express my sincere appreciation for the outstanding renovation your company recently completed in my back yard. The transformation is simply amazing. You are the best! From start to finish, working with you on this project was a true joy. Your ability to translate my vague vision into a solid design was impressive... your attention to the project scheduling, costs and creation made the outcome an unqualified success. Things were done on time, within budget and with a minimum of disruption. You really did create a “backyard living area ” which is strikingly beautiful, peaceful and functional. Do not hesitate to use me as a future reference. It would be an honor and privilege to show off your creation to any potential clients. I wish you all the best in the future. 

Doug Cole, Glouchester, Boise
