Along the way, we have forged personal relationships with our clients, all of whom have come to trust and honor the way we do business. Here’s what some of our clients have to say about our company.

Design and Coordination
Jeb is brimming with creative ideas and his professional approach includes beautiful, amazing three-dimensional drawings that really helped us to "see" the design concepts. We appreciated his thorough explanation of the scope of the work Makaira can offer, the careful attention given to our questions, and the easy cooperation with our architect, builder, and interior designer.

Collaborative Design Projects
We have collaborated on several projects with Jeb, working closely to provide conceptual site design through design development drawings. He always clearly communicates a clear design intent and works with us to create a custom approach to each project. This design/build relationship always results in a quality design, backed by an even better implementation. I look forward to working more with Jeb in the future.

Collaboration
Jeb is a talented designer who also possess great skill in collaborating with other designers. When we have collaborated on projects with Makaira we have appreciated Jeb's ease in communicating design intent and his ability to be flexible to make sure the best ideas float to the top. This collaborative spirit can be seen through Makaira's installation work as well. Good design that is followed by a quality installation, that is a job well done.

Landscape and courtyard design
Jeb Barber and his crew are so efficient. The crew always showed up on time and open to my ideas regarding the landscape design they did for me. The final results of the project was done in a timely manner and would highly recommend them to anyone. Also, their fees were very reasonable.

Design work
I have worked with Jeb on several very extensive landscape projects. He brings a extra layer of creativity to our design projects. In my experience as a residential architect, I find this a rare but wonderful characteristic. I continue to involve him on every possible project and always enjoy his input.

What a Wonderful Job!
I was working with Jeb Barber for a few weeks to iron out the details and I was so happy with the way he responded to my concerns and created the most beautiful space in my front yard. Kudos Makaira!
