“Please know that I am a very satisfied client of bluegreenLA landscape architecture, and I enthusiastically and wholeheartedly endorse the talents and counsel of its principal, Chris Gustard. Chris delivered a creative, beautiful design for a complicated pergola in my Olde Towne gardens. I was impressed by his ability to immediately size up the issues we faced with its placement, size and design. He presented multiple concepts as well as value-engineering suggestions that resulted in significant cost savings. I also had the pleasure of working with Chris on site planning for a large urban event here in Portsmouth, VA. In planning the Portsmouth Pride Festival Chris was patient and attentive with event organizers and provided one elegant solution after another with a complex site plan that had lots of moving parts. Without reservation I have already recommended Chris and bluegreenLA to neighbors here in Olde Towne and will continue to do so with all of my family and friends. My only concern is that Chris will become so busy he won't be able to get back to several garden hardscape issues here at my property!"

"Being familiar with Chris and his work, we hired him to help us with a hardscape design that would compliment the modern architecture of our home. He chose a narrow modular paver which we almost changed but Chris convinced us to keep. Once installed we absolutely loved it! He helped us in reviewing contractor bids and getting the price down without compromising the original design. I would recommend Chris to anyone who seeks a very knowledgeable design professional who really pays attention and responds to the needs of the customer."
Bracey Parr, Portsmouth Pride
Hampton Roads, Virginia
"Our inaugural Portsmouth Pride Festival was a resounding success thanks in significant part to Chris's preparation of site plans for the event. When approached about involvement in the project he did not hesitate for a second to donate his time and design expertise in event planning to our cause. He worked diligently and carefully through multiple presentations and iterations of the site plan with community and City leaders and helped to identify and ameliorate potential safety and logistical concerns. Finally, his plan was used in the application for - and securing of - a significant grant from the Virginia Board of Tourism. BluegreenLA is an excellent landscape architecture firm for the Tidewater, Virginia area and I highly recommend Chris for any projects from large urban spaces and events to residential landscapes."
