I have a cactus garden that was very overgrown. Dangerous work! I also wanted some of the cacti transplanted to my backyard. Mr. Torres came on a Sunday,started work and did not stop until the job was done. He is more a landscape designer,then just a gardener. His crew ,by his side he sculped my cactus and transplanted and shaped them into a beautiful garden. It looks beautiful.He wants to please his customers and he reaches that goal. I would highly recommend him.He is now my official cactus expert.!

I had a lady come by for the initial estimate. Her name was Jaeleah. She was an estimate manager. She was very nice and asked a lot of questions and took down a lot of notes and even left me with a business card. From there within the hour I received an email regarding the estimate and availability. I then, had a scheduling manager contact me to confirm details and day along with time. On the day of the actual clean up, I had a lead landscaper by the name of Catarino ( Cat for short) come with a young man named Kevin, Cat did not speak perfect English but he could communicate and tried very hard, Kevin spoke perfect English and helped me to confirm what I thought Cat was saying. The guys started the job which consisted of removing grass and weeds on a 3500 sq foot lot. I figured it would take the guys 2 days to do that kind of job. When I got home after work around 6pm the guys were actually finishing up. I mean, I was shocked. I walked the lot with them and we went over ideas and I mean I was so amazed by how hard and fast they got this job done. As soon as my husband gets back in town we are going to confirm what our next plant of action will be. Cat recommended I install new more drought resistant sod along with some gorgeous flowers he showed me that compliment the color of my home really well. He even showed me pictures of other sod and landscape designs he has done in the past and the work was exquisite. For the quality of work these guys provide and the professionalism these guys could easily be charging double if not triple the prices they charge. I am thankful I found you guys. Thanks for all the hard work you all did for us! We are excited for whats to come.

Thank you, John, for your fast response to my urgent request. You arrived when you said you would, and your team got the entire job done and completely cleaned up before noon. My 6' hedges needed cut back to the property line before a City Inspector's visit and the job had been left half done by my gardener. You know landscape design and cut the trunks and branches with skill so the new growth will come back looking its best. You have made me a very happy customer.

These folks showed up a few hours after I called them and I explained my two problems, the power was out in one of our bedrooms and my outdoor lights would not turn off. Before they arrived my wife reminded me of something else that wasn't working properly and to ask them to address this dilemma. Each of these items probably would have cost me 3-4 hours of work and the purchase of a voltmeter if I proceeded and then, if it didn't work, I would have to call someone to correct it. These guys were done within an hour and were as polite and friendly as true service should be. I have found the only electrical service company that I will ever need.

We hired Reyes Waterfall Landscaping to remodel/enlarge the waterfall for our existing pond and in the process, also fix the large leaks in the original structure. They really worked with us to follow our design ideas rather than their own thoughts - which ended up making the fountain changes we really wanted, while keeping our costs down. They also were on board with our using donated rock from a neighbor's yard, which saved us a LOT on material costs and also enabled us to use local rocks/boulders which matched the original materials used in the existing pond and fountain. I have already recommended them to a friend, and would do so again!

Good people, reliable and serious with work. Very clean. Professional job. Reasonable price. My mistake: not being present when job was done and it was not done as initially agreed, but, overall, a good job. .

Ben was the first to respond to my inquiry through Thumbtack. He fixed the fence that was damaged by invasive tree roots that went over to my neighbor side. He was everything the previous comments described, plus more. Ben is very professional and polite. He is genuine and courteous, and an honest man on his words. Ben accommodated my request to work before and after our tree service with great work quality on reasonable price. I would definitely refer Ben and his service to my friends. Thank you!

I’ve use Picket Fences 3 times to remodel our garden and aging pool. Due to water restrictions, we transformed to a drought tolerant landscape. Pool needed to re-tile some edge areas. They are knowledgeable and know how to tackle the with problems without hurting my budget. The landscape is great and now we enjoy more time outdoors with a great view.

Oscar and his team are incredibly talented, the quality of his arrangements, plants, and designs were truly way beyond what I expected. Unique Succulent Designs was not the cheapest option, but they were absolutely the best decision I made for my backyard compared to the other vendors I was looking at. Thanks so much, my whole family loves the look of what you did. 100% would work with you again.

I don't know much about gardening so I really needed a professional who I can trust and who knows exactly what needs to be done. We recently had to do an overhaul in our yard, and Johnny gave me such a good price, so I knew I could use him for my bi-weekly maintenance as well. Johnny and his team are extremely reliable - they're always on time and on schedule, and he is easy to get a hold and to communicate with. Overall - just a great vendor to work with!

Nero's products are amazing. The concrete will go with the modern look and the craftstman look as well. Nero's service is very detail oriented and profession. I'd highly recommend him to anyone.

In September 2015, we hired Ecology Artisans, which included Tigre Pickett, Chris Marciello and team, to create a more ecological and sightly landscape. [Our home was built by a known architect in the 1940’s, Pre-Mid-Century Modern and it was important that our landscape played off of the off the modern architectural lines and style while incorporating a natural look. In August 2014, we completed an extensive kitchen addition and home restoration and were selected by Save Our Heritage Organization (SOHO) as recipients of a 2015 People in Preservation award; SOHO was impressed by the care and detail put into the sensitive addition to our known architect’s designed home.] In hiring a landscaper, Ecology Artisans, it was imperative we hire a company which complimented and exercised the same level of care and detail as our recent addition and restoration. In September 2015, Ecology Artisans began the design process for a landscape makeover. This included Turf Removal, Irrigation Overhaul, and Water Wise Landscape Installation. In December 2015, demolition, construction and installation took place (more than $25,000 job) and Ecology Artisans was with us every-step-of-the-way. Tigre Pickett, Ecology Artisan’s Designer and Project Manager, is a bright and upcoming landscape design prodigy, whom contributed a wealth of influence, input and oversight into the project. The project was completed with the upmost degree of precision & quality, honesty & trustworthiness and integrity & professionalism. Ecology Artisans is the absolute best contractor we have ever hired; they are knowledgeable, kind & personable and meticulous to-every-detail, and always on-top-of-things and helpful to make challenging situations less-challenging. We highly recommend Ecology Artisans, Tigre Pickett, Chris Marciello and team and would not hesitate to hire them again! la Jolla, CA

I met Brian 2+ years ago at the SD Home Garden Show. Out of all the vendors I talked with, he stood out. He was easy to talk with...down to earth, sincere, and friendly, not at all like the others who were high pressure and quite expensive. I was an inexperienced gardener when I met Brian. I told him I wanted to be able to sit by my window and look out at a beautiful garden filled with birds and butterflies. Also, I did NOT want a lot of yard work to do! He accomplished that job magnificently and throughout the past two years I have called him back to work on other projects in my yard. For example, I have a very steep hill behind my house in University City. Brian suggested a "goat trail" on the steep hill so I would have easy access to the plants. Now I can easily walk the path and enjoy the shrubs and trees planted on the hill. My favorite project that Brian designed and created was the conversion of an in-ground spa to a tranquil quiet meditation space. When he finished the demolition of the spa Brian added a Buddha statue and soft down facing lighting to enhance the area. At night I can view the space from my bedroom. It is very comforting and relaxing before falling asleep. I wake up to birds singing every day. All the plants in my yard are drought tolerant, lush, and green and I water a maximum of 9 minutes total per week. I am so grateful that Brian had the foresight to think about the water issue when he planned my garden in 2013. His work crew is small but very hard working. They are friendly and polite. I got to know them very well when they worked at my house. The entire team is very knowledgeable about drought tolerant plants, irrigation systems, soil, lighting, etc. At the time they were working for me, they only worked at one address at a time so my projects were completed in a reasonable amount of time. At the end of each job, Brian spent time to help me to understand the particular details of each project. This has helped me a great deal now that I am actively caring for the entire area. Brian has an artistic sense that I find lacking in most landscapers. This creative talent makes his garden designs quite special. He has a way of blending a variety of sizes and species of plants and boulders, on undulating patches of soil, to create a beautiful pleasing environment. I am extremely pleased that I chose Garden Spirit to transform my backyard into a desirable happy place.

We met Steve last year during a home tour in Fallbrook, where Steve had designed a wonderful succulent yard at a beautiful estate. We fell in love with the place, and we asked Steve to help us with our much smaller yard in Carmel Mountain Ranch. we were ripping out most of our old landscaping (grass, bushes and some trees) and bringing in succulents and boulders. Steve has a great design sense, and made many suggestions for us as to the types and numbers of plants we should consider and where everything would go. We made some trips to Waterwise Botanicals in Escondido to see all the varieties he was considering and gave him our preferences. The greatest thing about working with Steve, however, was his responsiveness and his desire to involve us in the process. When the job started (LandscapeOne from Fallbrook was our contractor), Steve brought many, many plants and placed them around the property for us to get a feel for how the final result would look. We would then talk with Steve and together arrive at a "look" that we were happy with. And he truly is a master designer! We loved his choices and his placement of the succulents. The end result surpassed all our expectations! Recently, we got Steve's help again to replace an area of rose bushes with more succulents and boulders. The end result again was spectacular! We'd be pleased to talk with anyone about our working experience with Steve McDearmon and show the results in our yard.

My husband and I asked Stephen to spruce up our patio and garden area. After hearing Stephen's ideas for building a water feature and planting incredible succulents in a garden display, we agreed to move forward with his vision and we could not be happier with the result! We consider Stephen a brilliant landscape architect with unmatched creativity and knowledge. Our garden setting is now our ‘Happy Place’ and we have Stephen to thank! ~ Dorothy and David Livingston
