"I first met Chris at the 2008 Portland Flower Show where he was the third time recipient of the Beatrix Ferrand Design Award and the Peoples’ Choice Award for his, “Dancing in the Moonlight” exhibit. I was immediately blown away, and marveled at the possibilities. That began a professional and personal relationship with both Chris and his wife, Terri. I can’t say enough about this couple. Not only have I admired their professionalism and artistry, but our relationship has turned into a treasured friendship. By mid-summer of 2009, my husband and I decided to go forward with having our own garden swimming pond. Christopher came over to help us select the perfect location for our healing oasis, and they quickly went straight to work. I can’t begin to express how impressed I am with his team. They’re all amazing professionals with a wonderful ability to connect with people. With each passing day, they left my property with their tools neatly stacked away so as not to compromise the safety of our family or our ability to access and use our property. Robin’s Nest moves quickly, but never cuts corners. I know this because I've watched them every step of the way of documenting the process with my camera. Once they completed the rock waterfall and turned on the pump, I was blown away by my reaction. I CRIED! Granted, I've seen their work at flower shows, on television, in photographs, but it’s quite another experience to have a water feature by Robin’s Nest in your own back yard. It has completely changed the energy and the dynamic of our property. It leaves me speechless every time (hard to do). The sound of the waterfall can be heard in almost every room of my house. We’re sleeping better at the Sanchies homestead – even the dogs! I can’t even explain what it’s like swimming in this pond. It’s unlike anything we've ever experienced. What’s more amazing is that we enjoy this swimming oasis even when we’re NOT swimming (and no conventional swimming pool can boast that). Having Robin’s Nest build our garden swimming pond was by far the best decision! There’s no doubt in my mind that once you work with them and swim in your natural swimming pool - you’ll feel the same way."
