Just hired magnificent landscape to do my biweekly gardening. They did a great job on the first cleanup. So far every interaction with them has been very professional. They have great attention to detail. They asked whether I wanted my bushes natural or boxy, whether I needed to keep the trees tall for privacy...they asked about my irrigation system, what type of weedkiller I was comfortable with... I just loved how much detail they put into the job without any prompting from me! They have also been perfectly on time for the two times they have come so far.

I met with Sara a few days ago and am impressed enough to sign up for their services. Sara was pleasant and understanding as I railed on and on about the problems I was having with my current gardening services. She appeared to understand a homeowner's frustration with being treated like a number and assured me that their team take pride in their work. I look forward to working with them and seeing my garden thrive to its full potential.

Valentin was very responsive coming to my house the morning after I posted on thumbtack and spending an hour assessing my sprinkler situation for free after talking with me. He sent me a very clear proposal with several line items the next day which we refined together. He then came the next morning with his assistant and worked very diligently (11 hours) until the job was completed - while I was away at work. Installed a new sprinkler control box, a new drip system in the yard and on a hill, planted three new shrubs and ran irrigation etc.. He did excellent work. I had a few minor follow up items that I asked him to do and he did so immediately. I would hire him again for sure.

Valentin did some valve replacement work and some other sprinkler system fixes. He showed me how everything worked in our new house. He was very professional and even came back a 2nd time to review his work with me (I wasn't home when he initially complete the work). He may not be the most affordable for basic fixes but he is an irrigation specialist and does great quality work and is in this to build long-term clientele.

D' Franco landscape designed our whole irrigation system for our garden. The team was incredibly professional and very knowledgeable about irrigation. Great communication in regards to the planning and then reviewing the final project. Very happy we chose D'Franco landscape for our irrigation, excellent at what they do! Great value as well.

Agosto Home Services completely transformed my garden. They did a fantastic job taking it from a neglected "jungle", to a beautiful, clean, like-new garden. It's never looked this good. I am so happy I found them. They did everything I asked for, just they way I hoped they would. I will keep using them and wouldn't want anyone else to work in my garden. I highly recommend them!

Gustavo and his crew did excellent work. He was professional and prompt with communication. They were diligent with their work. After loading all of the dirt into the truck to be hauled, they cleaned up our property with a blower and left it looking very good. We would definitely recommend them and want to hire them in the future for projects.

Steve was a pleasure to work with. First, he answered specifically what I needed (rather than just repeating his profile - I could have easily just looked that info up). He was quick to respond and prompt with his appointment (he came early), and finished earlier than I expected. And, he did a great job, including cleaning up the leaves and branches. I would highly recommend him for your gardening needs.

Miguel was able to remove an overgrown palm tree from our home front planter, which was no small task. In doing so, he was able to preserve the brick lining of the planter and left the area ready for new planting. After he was done, he cleaned the area including the windows to be sure it was clear of all debris. Great work! Before and after photos below. Sorry to get rid of a tree, but it was starting to do damage on the surroundings.

Dan Is very professional, knows his stuff and is very efficient. He obviously has a passion for what he does and that makes all the difference! We have a huge yard (by San Francisco standards) with already established plants, bushes and trees. They hadn't been tended to in a while and needed quite a bit of cutting back. Dan made quick work of it and knew what to do. He, also, fixed our irrigation that wasn't installed properly, fed the garden and now we're in the process of letting the garden grow. What a relief to know our garden is in good hands.

LiveNeighborly’s gardening service is awesome. This is the future of gardening: I get recommendations and photos after every service, can manage my account online and I pay by credit card. I like that they just take care of everything and I don’t need to worry about my yard anymore. Plus, when I do want something special done, it’s super easy to add a task with photos and they take care of it on their next visit. And I’m happy to say that it’s affordable. They are doing an great job so far and definitely recommend them.

Morgan is easy to work with, he stays up to date in his profession. He is a very creative gardener, and is innovative in his work as well as working with others. He is very knowledge about plants and their care. He listens well and is able to be very helpful in accomplishing goals for the garden. He is a very hard worker, and we were always very pleased with his work. While in San Luis Obispo, he was our gardener. We miss him!! He installed a new, underground watering system in an area we planted ground cover. He keeps up on new technologies, especially water saving techniques. He is a treasure!! He is knowledgeable, hard working, listens well, and an all around nice guy!!

Would definitely hire again! He helped us get our yard to a place where I could start working in it. The yard probably hadn't seen any care for years and now I can start gardening. He was very responsive and hard-working. He worked with us to understand what we needed and what our budget was, and made it happen.

I needed ideas to improve my front side yard and Edward came out right away and gave me a very competitive bid to install irrigation to connect to my existing system and put in sod, as well as topping off the bark in all the planter beds in my entire yard. Even better, he was able to start the job very quickly and finished it on time. Edward was super responsive, answered all my questions in person and via text/phone, and even put in some flowering plants (not part of the original job) for just the cost of the bags of planting soil he picked up.

Johnny Davis is the person who got me started in gardening and plant care. I have some rare and unique plants and trees that he gave me 30 years ago. I have since been out on my own, but working with him and learning about caring for yard plants made me quite successful. Rehabbing yard plants and trees is quite different from just planting, and this is one of his specialties. Sometimes older plantings have been just sheared and become leggy or too big. Many older plants need to be repaired. It takes an artist who is a knowledgable plant person to transition a neglected yard to a well tended yard without lopping everything off and starting over.

Hi! I had Johnny Davis over to help me with my garden, he works fast and seeing things with a new eye, and over all the garden looks much better and is much happier. I look forward to his next visit here to help out. I give him a five star rating for sure!!! Johnny knows how to fix things, and is a totally trustworthy person. He keeps his word and arrives on time. His cost is very fair for what he can offer.

Gabriel transformed our yard and helped us prepare the landscaping to be market-ready. He was able to come immediately and gave us a much better price than competitors. The flowers and new sod that he installed not only looked great at the open house, but are actually blooming beautifully (new rose bushes) a month later. We are very happy clients!
