"I would give Water Wise Landscape 10 stars if I could. The last few years I had thought about converting my grass to desert landscape and talked to more than 5 companies about how to do it and not happy with any of them. When I called and talked to Hudson, he was so patient and helped me through the process of making decisions and the necessary steps .I was so impressed with his crew and in three short days they had transformed my front yard. I am so lucky to have found Hudson and his crew to do this project and I would highly recommend them."

"Hudson was easy to work with and really listened to what I wanted. Have had nothing but great feedback from neighbors."
- Holly M. in La Quinta, CA
"Hudson and his team are the best. Very knowledgeable, PATIENT (let my kids help pick out rocks) and really took the time to get to know what was wanted. Plus he was able to finish everything on a tight deadline for a wedding. Highly recommended for all landscape needs.."
- Jordan Hall
"Very professional. Discussed project with me and designed according to what I liked and what I could afford and finished in a timely fashion. Am very pleased with results."
- Victoria G. in Palm Springs, CA
"The designs Hudson made for my front and back yard are wonderful. He listened to all of my dreams about a yard and I did asked a lot of questions which he answered. I have allergies so he made sure to keep that in mind while designing. I also wanted low maintenance and self watering as much as possible. He was very good about explaining to be about the care of the plants and which areas of the yards would work best. He also brought a lot of pictures to show me plants I didn't know about. We did phase 1 and will continue with the plan for the rest of the designs. I did not to the whole project. Need to budget which he said is what many people do. Thank you so much Hudson for the work completed so far will contact you for the next phase when I'm ready."

"Hudson took a curb appeal that was too boring for the realtors to include in the house’s listing and turned it into the best landscape in the neighborhood. He listened to our needs and developed a plan that was unique and which all of us were happy with. His workers were nice, professional, competent and who worked outside in 100 degree temperatures. ."

"I am very impressed with Hudson Hale's company, Water Wise Landscape. They switched the lawn from a water guzzler to an attractive water efficient desert landscape.
I must admit, I had many concerns about how it would look and about the loss of greenery, but as it turns out, I had nothing to worry about. The plant, boulder and tree placements are very beautiful, along with the hills and mounds that combine to provide a lovely and natural desert palette.
I had a couple of questions today (about 2 months after the work was completed) and Hudson, the President of the company, came over and walked me through every choice he'd made and how to have the gardener care best for the yard. Made sense. A very nice man with a love of what he does, I admire his work ethic and standard. As a matter of fact, when the fellow from the Water District stopped by, he complimented the yard and asked who did it. I couldn't recall the company name and he said that he was pretty sure this was Hudson Hale's work, noting the quality and signature that Water Wise leaves on a property.
If you're looking around, look here first.."
- Patrice H. in Palm Desert, CA
"They provided a different design for my project which I liked better than the one I originally had in mind. They provided a sketch of what it would look like, keeping a few of my existing plants, after pruning them. Their workers were courteous and prompt. Mr. Hale showed a keen interest in the whole project, explaining all the details. All in all, I was very pleased with Hort Tech Landscape Construction."
- Ruth D. in Palm Desert, CA
"Working with Hudson and his crew was delightful. I am absolutely thrilled with the result. He used plants that were prefectly suited to the environment but also a little different than every other landscape you see in the desert. It was a relatively small scale project but they treated me like I was just as important as their biggest clients. The end result was a "Sunset Magazine" showcase for a reasonable price. I would highly recommend using this company."
- Lauren F. in Palm Springs, CA
"They did a great job for us. The owner came up with a good design based on our input, delivered their services as committed and completed the job in less time than estimated. The owner is very personable and extremely professional. His deep knowledge of horticulture and the desert environment helped us substantially. Cost for the products and services was reasonable and the entire experience was really great. We will use them again and we recommend them to others."
- John R. in Rancho Mirage, CA
"The time and consideration that Hort Tech put into my request and into any questions I had was invaluable to me! It is not easy to find people like this anymore. The job I needed done was something I am uneducated about and I needed to find someone who could explain different options and show me ideas. Several other companies didn't even ask me what I wanted let alone take the time to have any discussions at all. I loved working Hort Tech! I felt very confident with them from the beginning, and I love the completed project! Thank you Hort Tech! :)"
- Lynn B. in Cathedral City, CA
"Mr. Hale Hudson promptly showed up for appointments, offered appropriate suggestions for plant options, provided both references and example landscape plan drawings, has an easy-going manner, and is very knowledgeable about plants and conversion of grounds for a new design. VERY HELPFUL!"
- Peggy E. in Indio, CA
"Hudson and his crew from Water Wise did an amazing job at transforming our front yard from a complete water wasting grass field, into a stunning desert landscape. He was very patient as we hand selected the rocks for the yard and very accommodating to find the right plants for the right spaces. We were very hands on for the whole project and grateful that Hudson took the time to work with us, even our grandchildren in making it perfect. We had a hard deadline and as promised he finished on time. Very proud of our yard and the investment we made in Water Wise and Hudson. Highly recommended."
- Palm Springs Florist in Palm Desert, CA
"Hudson called promptly to set up an appointment, showed up to my house on time to evaluate my problem garden project. Rather than sell me a backyard full of new sod, he told me that it would just have to be replaced again in a few years. He recommended that I simply fertilize the lawn more frequently and told me what products to use. Then he fertilized the lawn when he said her would, even though he doesn't usually do such small jobs. He is every honest and truly helpful."
