  12. 12. Lake Sylvia Lake Home (design)<br />Annandale, MN<br />The homeowners wanted a low maintenance design that was both functional as well as beautiful. My design limited the amount of turf areas and utilized durable plant materials to reduce the amount of mowing, pruning and weeding needed during the family’s weekend visits. Together with my crew, I was able to seamlessly incorporate a paver patio, in ground fire pit, sand playground area, boulder retaining walls and naturalistic plantings to create a low impact and visually appealing lakeshore landscape.<br />4550 Sterling Drive<br />Big Lake, MN 55309<br />Phone: 763-263-8452<br />Cell Ph: 763-482-0097<br />smarotz@hotmail.com<br />DESIGN PORTFOLIO<br />

  33. 33. “One word can sum up Scott: Professional. During conceptual designs, he is creative, has an exceptional knowledge of plant species and their application and develops value based designs. Throughout construction, Scott is always on top of things. He visits the site early, communicates well with the superintendent, performs quality work, on time and most importantly to me, stands behind his work. Because of his high level of values and service, Scott is the first person I call when I need landscaping services.” <br />Eric Munt, LEED AP<br />Project Manager/Business Development <br />Scott Builders<br />“Scott provided creative and cost effective solutions to entry monumentation and development landscaping that is critical in the marketing of a very high-end residential development (home packages from $1,750,000 -$3,000,000). Always easy to contact and performed required tasks on time and budget.”<br />Bill Coffman<br />Owner<br />Coffman Development Services<br />“Scott has provided several landscape plans for our projects. He was our first call when we needed a design completed quickly and for a reasonable cost. His responsiveness was exemplary.”<br />Cara Otto<br />Senior Vice President<br />Otto & Associates<br />“Scott understands that the work place is more than a job it is a place to build long lasting working relationships. Scott utilizes his personality, attention to detail and communications skills to help produce a great product for his clients. His dedication to his work is obvious to his clients and will do anything to finish the job correctly while at the same time still being conscious of budgets and efficiencies.” <br />Sean Raboin<br />Project Manager<br />HTG Architects<br />“Scott brought a level of professionalism rarely seen in the construction industry to the project every day. He&apos;s organized, courteous, respectful and results driven. Would highly recommend Scott for future projects.”<br />Nicholas Mertz<br />Project Manager<br />The Ryland Group<br />“It was a pleasure working with Scott. He is very responsive and delivers a quality product.”<br />John Caroon<br />Project Manager<br />Carl Bolander and Sons<br />Testimonials<br />“The way to gain a good reputation, is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.”<br />SOCRATES<br />“I have worked with Scott for the past 5 years on the Big Lake Planning Commission. Scott’s attention to detail and years of experience as a Landscape designer have been a huge asset to the quality of development that the City of Big Lake has seen since he has been a member of the board and literally he has helped shape and change the “landscape” of our city. It is his qualities as a team player and his high level of integrity that makes working alongside Scott so enjoyable!” <br />Doug Hayes<br />Planning Commissioner<br />City of Big Lake, MN<br />4550 Sterling Drive<br />Big Lake, MN 55309<br />Phone: 763-263-8452<br />Cell Ph: 763-482-0097<br />smarotz@hotmail.com<br />DESIGN PORTFOLIO<br />
