What our clients say

Karen Bertini was the main coordinator the Fall Tennis Classic at the North Shore Winter Club.  Her experience and personality made it an easy decision for Perimeter Drainage to be the Main Sponsor for that event.  We were extremely pleased with her service and level of commitment.  I would recommend Karen to anyone.
