DesignIntent provided landscape architectural services for our home, with Ruhina Surendran serving as the Landscape Designer and the Project Manager. Ms. Surendran is very creative, talented, professional, knowledgeable, and experienced. Her great attitude, and ability to work well with others, were evident throughout the project. Her extensive management background proved an asset, as she successfully coordinated and managed service providers she had worked with in the past, and new providers. She was always on top of everything, and saw to it that all deadlines and budget restraints were met. Best of all, the end result was great and more than I expected. Ruhina Surendran takes pride in her work, and she has a passion for what she does. I had many questions and ideas and she addressed them all. From start to finish, her professionalism, kindness, warmth, and patience were exceedingly refreshing! I am completely satisfied with DesignIntent’s services, and I highly recommend this company, and Ruhina Surendran.

We’ve been working with landscape architects for about 40 years and DesignIntent is up there with the best of them. The work is beautiful and exactly what we needed. They were extremely responsive and helpful with good suggestions on some alternatives we hadn’t considered. We will definitely use them again. Excellent company!

I highly recommend Ruhina. We picked her for our backyard project because we liked the way she designed her past projects and also she was super professional yet easy to talk to. She is very organized and took care of our project.

Super, super pleased with the landscape design and personal attention we received when using DesignIntent. We had many emails back and forth as well as several phone calls. Modifications were always made when requested and most important, Ruhina checked out each tree, plant, and shrub to ensure it was not toxic for dogs. Highly recommend her services!

As an architect I have had the pleasure of working with Ruhina on many residential projects. She understands the dynamics of the design process, and does what it takes to accommodate the client's wishes. She listens and responds in a calm and professional manner. I look forward to working with her on our future projects.

Ruhina was outstanding to work with, we found her online and were very pleased with her professionalism and high-quality work. We have already referred her to a close friend who also hired her for an even larger project--and they were equally pleased. She did more work than promised and was very reasonable on her fee.

Ruhina did an excellent job in designing and project managing our landscape project. She was always professional. She provided design layouts on time and made sure to try and keep within the budget.
