Efficient team included Chris, my main contact. That was very reassuring because I knew that what I had communicated and agreed to was going to get done. They trimmed a brunch of tree/shrubs growing into my backyard from the neighbors. It looks tons better, although the neighbors yard remains a jungle. Out front, they did a great job trimming a large tree. Chris also gave me advice about replanting the root bound dirt patch below the tree. I'm hopeful that with the improved light from the major trim and added soil (which Chris assured me would not hurt the roots) I will be able to once again enjoy my front yard's aesthetic. Highly knowledgeable, very friendly, very responsive. I'm keeping this number to use these guys next time!

Great service. He was able to get a quote quickly after seeing the project. We have a hill in our backyard that was getting overgrown with weeds following the rain and and 2 old tree stumps. One of the tree stumps were removed as well as the weeds removed, pompas grass trimmed and palm trees trimmed. While the price seemed a little high at $560 for the 3 hours of work that was completed, the job was done well.

We have a big tree in our backyard that needed topping and lacing. Evaristo Service did a very good job, cleaned up after themselves, and did it for a great price. Hundreds less than other offers. Maybe cut little more than I wanted but it'll grow back very nicely in a month.

We had part of an olive tree in our backyard that had fallen down and Greg and his crew were great at cutting that big limb down and then trimming and reshaping the rest...looks really good! (and the clean up was done well too...) Thanks Greg!!

Charlie did a good amount of landscaping and softscaping on my backyard this year. He also did some fencing, paint jobs, and installed pavers for me. He is reliable, takes directions well, and his prices are competitive. ~ Dan V. San Diego, CA

I hired Gilbert to install a double door gate and to lay down sod in my backyard. Both jobs were done very well. If I am in need of another project I would most likely give Gilbert a call and see if he will do the work for me.

Jason, Jon and their team did an amazing job! They installed pavers and artificial turf in our back and side yards. After meeting with many landscapers we felt comfortable choosing JSJ! They delivered quality work at a fair price and were very professional throughout the process. Jon is great at his craft and is very accommodating! Jason and Jon also had a lot of great ideas throughout the process. We would definitely recommend them and now love spending time in our backyard!

Brian is incredibly efficient. Very responsive and right on time. I live in a townhouse with a tight backyard and wanted my palm tree partially chopped down so that it could be carved into a tiki later. I couldn't believe how fast he got it down and all the debris hauled off. All while being mindful of the fences just a few feet away and my plants down below. I don't have any more trees but I was happy to refer him to my neighbor and my parents.

I had Jamie replace my backyard grass area with stamped concrete due to wanting to conserve water. The project turned out beautiful and all my friends love my new backyard. Jamie was very helpful in making suggestions on how to accomplish the new look for my backyard

Javier and his team did a great job. They communicated their plans, time frame, and any other random information or questions they had or we had in a timely manner. They finished the project on time. We had 8 fruit trees and new sob put in our backyard and it looks great! Will definitely be using him for future projects.

Eric and his associate did a wonderful job transforming 3 of our wild and untamed planters into 1 patio extension an 2 beautiful flower beds. He also found and planted to small palms to match one we already had. Everything was done in a timely manner in time for a backyard party we had. Thanks Eric! (I'll add proper before/after photos when I get the chance and think about it)

VP's quality work is amazing. His responsiveness is impeccable. The project was completed w/i two days. My backyard was neglected by previous owners. Now it's a beautiful landscaped yard where we can enjoy our puppy and kids. VP's never fail to maintain our property. 100% of the time I am a very busy working mom. I feel so at ease that I have company I can have in my home maintaining property w/o any worry. VP's Landscaping is a trustworthy Company. I would definitely recommend him for any project.

Dave did an excellent job repainting my backyard patio cover, spa and garden box. He took great care in filling in damaged areas of the wood patio cover, sanding down and then painting. The entire project turned out awesome and I'd definitely use Dave again.

Ricardo knows what he is doing. He is very knowledgeable about his field of work and was able to plan and get things done. His fee is very competitive. We even increased the scope of work to get some other things done and add another slab for a future spa along with the slab for the bbq and bar. We also had him plumb gas and electrical for some future backyard work/upgrades. He is a genuine entrepreneur who is honest and gets done what he committed to.

I hired Oscar a few weeks ago and I love the enthusiasm he brings to his work. His prices are very fair and his work so far is improving our front and backyards compared to our previous guy. We look forward to more great work and yards that will look even greater under his care!
