    Sean is a creative genius! From our first encounter I knew that he was "my landscape architect". I believe anyone could have planted a shrub, or two, and offered pavers but Sean listened to me - he incorporated my wants into the design of my backyard oasis. To say that he transformed the space doesn't say quite enough. It was truly a moving experience!

    Outstanding! Sean is unbelievably creative and his team brings his visions to life. I was worried that he would be too expensive for my project - but he was right in line with others. I would recommend him to anyone that wants beautiful work. He is prompt and actually does what he says. I am very impressed with the entire project start to finish.

    Sean did an outstanding performance in transforming our basic desert backyard and pool with an elementary waterfall into a stellar green oasis with a TOTALLY AMAZING hand crafted waterfall that my husband loves, and now all of our friends want to spend the weekends at our "RESORT"!!!! Sean is a great guy and SO EASY TO WORK WITH!! He's exceptionally creative and the initial consultation and sketch he provided were AWESOME!!! I would TOTALLY recommend his work to anyone! P$... he met my beginning of summer party dateline, as well! In spite of the inclement weather Thank you Sean and your AWESOME crew at Mountainscapers Landscaping!!!

    March 2015: Slice of Heaven This review is long overdue however; I wanted to make sure to get out there how professional and awesome Sean was through the whole process of having our backyard transformed. We have three kids and two dogs and before Sean we had a huge backyard with many thorny weeds. We were unable to utilize this space and we knew that had to change. We researched so many landscaping companies in the Phoenix area and none were as professional and courteous as Sean was. From step one he was very energetic and ready to take on this project and turn our backyard into our little piece of heaven. His suggestions really played into what we had in mind for our family along with his expertise we were able to finally get the yard we so much deserved. Every detail was not overlooked and Sean spared no expense in getting us the top quality of everything from the sprinkler system to the sod he purchased. It is also worth mentioning his website shows specular backyards and we have a much smaller space and with that a much smaller budget. Sean never made us feel any less of a customer and worked well with our budget and was still able to get us the backyard of our dreams. He is truly an example of someone who has passion for their work and takes pride in a job well done. Thanks so much Sean for creating our little slice of heaven!!! Our family will always be grateful!

    I haven't committed to the job yet as today was my first meeting with Sean but I was very impressed with the time and attention he spent explaining everything to me. I really liked the detailing in his drawing and how he broke everything down for me. I have had several other landscapers here to give me a quote and no one took the time that Sean did in explaining. I am hoping my husband gives the thumbs up on this project as Sean was very conscience of our budget and worked very hard to make sure the yard looked complete even if all his ideas were not implemented and that his quote was with in current budget and he gave me options to improve on down the road. I appreciated that he did not have the all or none mentality and was so willing to work with what I could afford.

    My project was a small condo yard. Sean was good about listening to what I wanted and had great ideas about how to make it happen. He and his crew started quickly, worked long days and had the work done in 2 days. They did a really nice job! There were features of the project that were priced very fairly and some that were a bit on the high side though over all I am really happy with my yard, it's a great space and the finished product exceeded my expectations!

    Sean was great to work with. After a quick consultation, his crew was at our house the next day. We were amazed at how fast and professional Sean and his team was. Our yard is zeroscaped and looks amazing. We have had numerous people already comment how great our yard was. We are going to use them on our new house, we referred a cousin. So, if you need a great team of landscapers, you found them!

    After shopping for several landscapers, I hired Mountainscapers Landscaping. They provided the best creative design and cost estimate. I could not be more pleased with their creativity and love my new backyard!

    Mountainscapers did a fabulous job on my back yard renovation! I especially like my interaction with the owner, Sean. He personally worked with me to create a plan that could be finished on time and within my budget. He took my ideas and added a creative flair so that my landscaping stands out from my neighbors. My backyard in now an outside paradise that I can use year round. I feel like I am at a resort! You can't go wrong with Sean and Mountainscapers Landscaping

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Lately I have been attending classes on the edible landscape. Permaculture has been my latest passion.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I love to be outside, so it was a natural. The thing about landscaping I love the most is that we have the ability to change the lifestyle of our clients. We actually build happiness. We create a place that they can go and escape everything that is outside of their home.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Complete landscape design and build.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We survived building a waterfall that was 30 feet tall and 120 feet wide. We constructed it from boulders weighing up to 60,000 pounds! Some of the boulders were over 20 feet long and 6 feet in diameter. Then I wanted to place it in all of these almost impossible positions like standing them on end and jutting straight into the air. We really pulled this project off. It was unbelievable, and very scary.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I would ask your contractor to break down their bid separately. That is how we present our estimates to our clients. It gives them the ability to prioritize and customize their own project based on budget.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I have been doing this for a couple decades. My skills range from coming up with the original ideas to producing the drawings, managing the tradesmen, to actually doing the work with my hands. Most business owners have a strength in one of those areas. I am strong in all of them :)
