Meet The Owner


"Ben is a very gifted and talented designer. He is very personable, professional, creative and easy to work with. What we felt was a very difficult project he was able to simplify!
Before selecting him we visited several of his projects and we were very impressed that they all reflected their own individuality relating to the homes and environment...non "cookie cutter" designs. We spent two years looking for someone who had fresh ideas before we found Ben who was involved in a neighbor's project.
He gave us a list of landscape/hardscape contractors at our request to interview. We selected one which was an excellent choice. They executed Ben's design to perfection and worked closely to get the project completed in a timely fashion. Our was project done in the winter with minimal delays that were due to weather."

"We hired Simple Elegance to design and create plans for our front yard. We live on a hillside, and the project was comprised of 8 retaining walls, a major staircase, new driveway and a new front entry.

Throughout the design process, Ben was very attentive to what we wanted, very mindful of our budget, and was absolutely amazing at suggesting things that would work, and those ideas that would not. We went back and forth with minor changes to the plan, which was NEVER a problem with him, he just wanted us to be happy with what we were designing. His knowledge is impressive and he is more then willing to share it with you, almost always at a benefit to the project.

The plans were very professional for all of the trades to use, and Ben was very hands on during the entire process. He was always there to answer any questions anyone had, and was onsite most days to oversee the project.

Simple Elegance not only provided plans for the hardscaping portion of the job, but the landscape design, lighting plan, drainage, and irrigation system.

We are extremely happy with the quality of work that Simple Elegance provided. It is hard to find someone that truly loves what they do, but with Ben, you
get the passion from him on the fist handshake."

"Professional, talented, knowledgeable & personable describe Ben Dickerson and his company. He listened attentively to what we wanted and then thoughtfully put together a plan that incorporated his design experience with our wish list. He did not try to force his own ideas and respectfully addressed any differences. I have already referred him to my neighbor who is also equally impressed.

Ben designed a 20' x 30' outdoor living area with covered patio in our backyard. It includes a fireplace, a BBQ and bar area. Additionally he provided complete new landscaping with a fountain. The design seamlessly matches the Tuscan look of the front of the house which was completed 3 years earlier. What he did does not look like an "add on" but rather a start to finish overall matching plan."
