Testimonial

It has been my distinct pleasure to work with Joy and her associates on a number of projects. Designs for facilities in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Niagara Falls, NY are all examples of site and landscape architectural design that she has completed. In each case, the design was creative, focused on the users, and complimentary to the building architecture. She has been a valuable part of these design teams, and an important reason why these projects are so very successful.

 

-David Duchscherer

Joy is an absolute credit to your firm and exemplifies what customer service is all about. Without her creativity, energy and organizational skills our “Bridge in Bloom” event would not have been such a success. The short time frame we had to schedule and hold this event required a dedicated leader. Joy handled the assignment with ease and remained unflappable.

Joy Kuebler and her team are creative, high energy, professionals! I had the pleasure of working with them during the redevelopment of an existing under-utilized enclosed green-space at the Dr. Drew Science Magnet #90(a Buffalo Public School). The school is located in an area where crime is prevalent and the neighborhood is dilapidated and vacant, making it even more important that children be given the chance to learn and play in a safe, structured outdoor environment. Joy and her team have gone above and beyond my expectations to ensure the design was completed within budget, and without any delays or excuses. The end result is a beautiful natural teaching environment which provides connections to the NYS standards, and fosters the development of the next generation of environmental stewards!
