Our regular maintenance worker quit last year and it didn't take long for our yard to become so overgrown and weedy that it was actually unpleasant to be back there. David and his team removed an enormous amount of weeds, dead plants and grasses, trimmed back the overgrown trees and shrubs and used no toxic chemicals to restore our gravel patio area. He completely rebuilt the irrigation system and restored the crumbling retaining wall, then replanted with a delightfully colorful selection of drought-tolerant shrubs and succulents, some of them California natives. We love it so much more now, we're always back there. David's price was great for what we got. He was very thorough with his estimate and communicated well when changes needed to be made. There were no surprises, which is what we loved about working with him! He completed the whole project in almost the exact time frame we agreed on. Overall it was an ideal experience with a super professional, knowledgeable and skilled landscape contractor. I highly recommend Shape of the Earth.

David put in a new irrigation system for me. He was very knowledgable. He had ideas about how to install a system to save more water and he worked well with me. He seems to enjoy his work and was pleasant to have around.
