Sprinkler and Irrigation System Installation

David is extremely knowledgeable and did a very nice job of straightening up my front yard, which had faced years of neglect. He is now working on getting back yard drip irrigation system up and running again. I will continue using him.

Outdoor Landscaping and Design

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.

Shrub Trimming and Removal

David helped us trim a massive pampa grass in our backyard. They did a good job cleaning up behind them.
