Otto arrived on time and we agreed on the scope of the gardening needed and the fee for bi-monthly gardening. The garden looked lovely, and we are looking forward to additional plantings and putting our "stamp" on our new home and landscape. I have no hesitation providing this review for the work provided by Otto/Meathead Landscaping.

I found Thomas Camarena very knowledgeable about landscaping and designing gardens. He recognized all the plants in our yard and knew how to take care of them. He's also a good listener and willing to work with the client. I look forward to having more work done by him and his company soon!

Ive been using Optimal Landscaping for sometime now and truly am grateful for the services Francisco's and his crew have provided me with over the years. From the installation of an artificial lawn in my back yard last year to the renovation of my "water stair" fountain in my Hollywood Hills home, Francisco's landscape design is always carefully planned and executed to perfection.Simply the best crew Ive ever worked with. Francisco's work always goes above and beyond my expectations, while working well within my budget.

I found Jose to be extremely knowledgeable about his craft during our initial meeting. Upon discussing the plan for desert landscaping on my front lawn, he followed up with a design drawing and ideas to enhance the overall look. Jose handpicked all of the large boulders and pond stones that were to make up the flowing rock river. He was also helpful in the drought resistant plant selection and worked closely with my wife and I on their placement within the landscape. Jose and his staff were professional, showed up on time and worked extremely hard during some pretty intense outdoor temperatures to get the job completed within a set timeframe. Jose and his staff were very conscientious of not doing any damage to my driveway as the large boulders and assorted stones were delivered to my home. They worked hard to ensure that we were happy with the final result. My wife and I felt that our expectations were exceeded and our two young girls said, "We feel like we're at a resort". Our neighbors have also weighed in with very positive feedback on the new landscaping. Finally, Jose stayed as close to our starting budget as possible. Any budgetary changes were brought to our immediately. I would highly recommend Jose Silva Landscaping for your landscaping needs.

We had decided to remove our lawn during the drought. We found Kyle on Thumbtack and, after looking at some of his work via his portfolio, decided to have him come out and kick some ideas around. Kyle put together a design idea for our front yard. He gave us some options as well to meet our price point, and was very generous with his time; we spent a lot of time around the table, looking at pictures he brought with him, selecting materials, and choosing plants that were appropriate for our climate zone. We never felt pressured during the process- Kyle has a very calm and unhurried demeanor. He also is very realistic about working within your budget. Once the work was scheduled, I was pleasantly surprised by how things unfolded. I've had contractors do work for me before, and I had experienced a much more unpredictable schedule that made me feel like my job was one of many on their plate. Not so with Kyle. The work was done exactly as he scheduled it. Even though he had other jobs, I'm sure, I never felt like our job was ever put on a back burner. After the job was done, I had a few other irrigation issues to solve elsewhere on the property. I didn't hesitate to call Kyle to help me out, and he'll be the first person I call next time I have landscape work to do. My only complaint is that now the neighbors keep standing around gawking at my front yard! I added pre, mid, and post photos of the project.

Jason has been extremely easy to work with. We had a lot of overgrown things in our new backyard and he was not only quick but affordable. We also have 2 dogs which is sometimes hard to work with. He was very flexible and even helped us with building some garden boxes so we can get our garden going!

We asked Form & Focus to design and re-landscape our front, side and back yards to give us a Southwest Zen feel. Their designer, Katie, worked closely with us to give us just what we wanted working within our budget. Her design included a Japanese style Zen garden (at our request) and new flagstone patio while using colorful stone to significantly reduce the area of our yard that needed watering. We did keep some areas of lawn, but used a new type of drought resistant grass called UC Verde buffalo grass (developed specifically for California by the University of California) that can be maintained at a meadow length, and which fits in perfectly with our natural Zen approach. The project took about 2 weeks to install and was carefully supervised by Jacob and Aaron on a daily basis. They worked with us to make adjustments to the various areas of the design as we moved along, so that everything was sized and shaped to our specs. Their people arrived promptly every day and worked through 100+ degree heat to keep us on schedule, cleaning up each night before they left. Here's what they did for us: demolition of existing landscape, installation of artificial turf, installation of flagstone/decomposed granite walkway/patio, installation of Zen garden including a 1,200 pound boulder, conversion to drip sprinkler system, installation of borders and decorative rock, installation of drought resistant grass and plants throughout. They were a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to use Form & Focus for future work.

Claudia has been tending to my tiny garden for over a year now. She selected the pIants and design after a brief consult with me and the finished product was exactly what I had pictured! (Thanks Claudia for reading my mind.) Now, she updates it with color each season. It's great for me! I'm enjoying the fruits of her labor...Claudia comes *highly recommended*

We reached out to 4 contractors for our project. Jose was the only one that came out, measured and put together a bid. Two called me back with just a basic price per square foot and another asked for measurements and photos and never called back. I have every confidence in Jose. His bid was so detailed that, unless I change something, there is no wiggle room. His meticulous attention to this process equals a good outcome in my hardscape. He is very knowledgeable about saving water and drainage, sure but he also has very good taste. He did some design that is way better than my ideas!

I call Chris the "Picasso of Plants". His innovative landscape designs have already won my home 2 awards. He's designed 3 homes on our street and all are completely different. He also offers gardener maintenance. His prices are very competitive. Truth be told, you get so much more than you pay for! HIGHLY recommend.

Sarah did an excellent job landscaping my front yard.We changed it from lawn to drought tolerant plants with a drip system. With her eye for design and her knowledge of plant she came up with a fantastic plan. I really enjoyed the process including going to the nursery with Sarah to pick out plants. She worked with my gardener on the installation but also has people she works with on a regular basis to do the installation while she makes sure everything is going according to plan. I highly recommend her.

I echo the previous reviewer's notes on Derek. Not only did Derek do a great job, but he really helped me elevate my green thumb knowledge. His pricing was competitive and hisck tractor Jose was incredibly timely in executing the garden implementation and finishing the project. As a side, Derek himself was a pleasure to work with. Very cheery and pleasant. I highly recommend Derek.

I am a real estate developer is Los Angeles and had the pleasure of meeting Rolando at a building I purchased in Echo Park. The building had been terribly neglected by the previous owner and during my initial inspection of the property I was pleasantly surprised so see a small oasis in the middle of this barren wasteland in the form of a garden and an artists studio on the rear patio. I was so impressed with Rolando's efforts to maintain and elevate the property with no budget that I offered him the position of manager and gave him a small budget to turn his oasis into a thriving cactus garden. He did a wonderful job. I have since purchased another property in the area and immediately commissioned Rolando to turn the front yard and entrance area into a contemporary, high end fascade. Because of his artistic and creative wherewithall, he exceeded my expectations of him by adding a contemporary wood panel fence which he laquered and added above ground pots to create a true high end residence. He did all this on a budget and did not go above it. He was very professional and sent me pictures of all the items he would use and how it would look so there was no guessing game. Using Ro - as I now call him- is like getting a landscaper and designed all in one. He is very detail oriented. I will be using him for all my future projects. No question about it.

I’ve known Kevin for many years. He has always been a conscientious, hard working, and honest individual. He remodeled my home not long ago, inside and out, and saved me not only a considerable amount of money, but the quality of the remodel is amazing. I’m still getting compliments on it. The best part was how we worked together designing the remodel so I ended up getting exactly what I wanted as well as everything being very comfortable and convenient. I had one of those popcorn type ceilings and he removed all of that. Now I have beautifully smooth and painted ceilings in every room. When I brought the house there was a hole in the living room ceiling. Kevin found and repaired a water leak from the upstairs bath that had caused it. Everything needed replacing in each bathroom. He tore it all out - walls, plumbing, floors, fixtures, bath tub, shower, cupboards, drawers, everything. He helped me with ideas on where I could find new fixtures, etc. for the bathrooms and went with me to give me his input and help me transport the items back home. The electrical wiring was old so he rewired the whole place as well as hiding TV cables that the installers had just left hanging in plain view. He installed new lighting throughout so I have plenty now when I need it, and ceiling fans too. I mentioned I didn’t have enough storage space and before I knew it Kevin had located extra room below the staircase and in the space above the staircase upstairs. He made a door and installed it in the wall below the stairs, and he took out part of a wall above the stairs and inside a closet and added shelves. I now have two new storage areas. He also laid my wonderful new tile floors in the kitchen, hall way, and bathrooms. He built the entire patio from scratch. I needed cupboards on the patio to hold gardening equipment so he designed and built those and attached them to the wall of the house. They are up off the ground and very convenient. Kevin installed a new patio roof, and he installed a sprinkler system as well – I really love that! We designed the patio layout together. Kevin had great ideas on how to build the large planter section. The flowers and plants are thriving, and I’m really enjoying the dwarf blood orange tree he encouraged me to buy. Some neighbors and friends have asked for Kevin’s contact information and they are very pleased with his help with their household problems. He enjoys nothing better than to help people. No task is too small or too large. He is a knowledgeable and multi-talented handyman. He is very kind coming back periodically to maintain my property. I don’t know what I would do without his help.
