"responsive, thorough, and knowledgeable"

Jacob's first experience in the landscape industry was in a small business he started with a younger brother. They wanted more than their weekly allowance so they printed up flyers and canvassed the neighborhood. The Hong Brothers were officially in business...and Jacob has been at his best when working outside ever since. He truly enjoys the satisfaction of making a garden or landscape design a reality for Southview's clients and is delighted when clients are happy with the results.

Jacob is a pleasure to work with, and it has been wonderful to have him as a contact over several years – he is incredibly responsive, thorough, and knowledgeable. Jody Abramson, Community Manager, FS Residential
