Client Feedback :

My landscaping project with Creative Gardens was a very positive experience.
A preliminary consultation with Martin helped to define my overall objectives for the project. Subsequently, he provided a proposal consistent with my personal preferences and which considered the architectural style of my house as well as the overall character of the entire surrounding property area including soil conditions and prevailing sun exposure. Accordingly, only appropriate trees, shrubs and plants were recommended for consideration. Overall, Martin's landscape rendering and product selection demonstrated a high degree of creativity and design talent.
Pricing was reasonable considering the superior quality and the quantity of plants he installed. Additionally, only the finest quality materials and professional techniques were used for soil preparation and planting.
Martin personally demonstrated excellent work ethics, professionalism and personal integrity while dedicating himself full-time to the job of managing and executing the project from beginning to end. He ensured all defined objectives were met and completed as scheduled. The final results were exceptional and exceeded all expectations.
I would highly recommend Martin Berlinder and Creative Gardens.

Glass doors slide from the living room to provide access to a staircase that leads down to the river's edge. Steps also lead directly outside from Kaufmann's bedroom on the second floor. A stream was also allowed to drip straight into the house.

The structure of building was a bold choice for Wright, and one of his early experimentations with concrete. The design created tension between himself and Kaufmann, who often questioned the structural integrity of the ambitious cantilevers.

Kaufmann and his family holidayed in Fallingwater until he died in 1955. After this, the property passed to his son Edgar Junior.
