Estate Scapes is excellent - friendly, flexible and reasonable fees with excellent service! I have never written a review before but feel that I need to do one for David, owner of Estate Scapes. With our children grew up and no longer use the pool in the back, my wife and I decided that we wanted to redo the backyard. At the same time we wanted to redo our fence and the front yard as well. Our goal was to have a minimal maintenance yard (we both hate to do any yard work) and low water use. After we have our in-ground pool filled up, we talked to several contractors and selected David because on 1st impression we felt that he was earnest and listened to our ideas. We were right all the way! Davis worked with us and responded extremely timely to our questions and requests including changes in the original plan such as changing the type of concrete we used, changing the design and materials use for our front brick wall, etc. He listened and gave us recommendations that worked really well with what we want. Our neighbor was so happy with his work on our fence that he talked with David to get his other fence done. We also was so happy that we hired David to redo our patio in the backyard as well as the front door steps. With the beautiful yard that David created for us we felt it was a crime to leave the old patio and front door step which looked so out of place with our new yard. David is finishing up on our patio now, just need to put up the gazebo we got from Costco and apply sealer on our concrete. I was going to write a review after everything was done but so excited about what David did that I could not wait. I highly recommended David to any one who wants to do any landscape.

I would like to give my whole hearted recommendation to Black Diamond! From the scheduler, Travis, to the Project coordinators, Amy and Kia, to the Foreman (woman), Flor and Erik and the rest of the crew, we can't express how happy we were with the work and the experience. We originally had them repave our backyard, the work was done ahead of schedule and exceeded our expectations. The crew was great. We were so happy with our back yard, that although we were going to wait to redo our front, we couldn't wait to have our front yard look as good as our back yard and had them start the project right away. We were so happy with the back yard that we didn't bother with getting other quotes for the front yard. We knew which company we wanted to do our front. The scheduler, Travis, was very accommodating to coordinate with outside contractors to allow these contractors to complete work in the middle of Black Diamond's job. Once we demolished the front we realized that our main drain needed to be replaced. We had to hire outside plumbers. This job took longer than expected but Travis was able to work around the delay and even though the project was delayed (not of any fault of Black Diamond), Travis made sure the job started timely after the plumbers were finished. In addition, we had some minor issues after the job was completed and Travis and Black Diamond were able to provide timely follow up to take care of these issues. Project Coordinators, Amy and Kia treat you like family. They care about you as a customer. Kia is very detailed oriented, willing to give his opinion in our best interest. Flor and Erik were always friendly and would work around and listen to our ideas. They would try to incorporate our ideas and give ideas as to how to improve upon our ideas. Erik is a "master craftman" taking obvious pride in the quality of his work.

We recently hired Keith and his team to complete a small project in our backyard which included weeding, leveling, removal of a stump, mulching and a small hogwire fence. We obtained 4 bids for this project. Keith was very punctual and professional. His bid was very competitive. He started the work promptly as promised, and his crew was very hard working and friendly. The cleaned up the project area at the end of each day. When material costs ended up being higher than he originally estimated, he shared with me the invoice, and I felt he was dealing with me honestly, and we adjusted the project cost accordingly. Keith completed the project well ahead of our deadline, and we are very happy with the end result. We are looking forward to working with him on future projects.

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.

My wife and I have been working with Pedro Carrasco every week since March. He has been working along side us to tackle our very own DIY landscaping project. We consider finding Pedro a huge blessing as we could not have done this project without his professional expertise and extensive knowledge of all things landscaping. Pedro has been nothing but professional and happy to help whenever he possibly can. The project started off as a simple consultation for him, and turned into him working tirelessly along side us and extended family day after day to landscape our backyard. Not only does it feel like we have made a new friend, he's become part of our extended family. Aside from the personal relationship we've built over the weeks. He is a very knowledgeable professional and has an expansive knowledge of landscaping products and materials, especially in relation to irrigation; which is his main specialty. He is very accommodating with his schedule and always willing to help whenever he can. He anticipates what we need next and has shown up at our house several times with supplies we needed, just so we didn't have to make an extra run to the store. He has already been referred to several of our family, friends and neighbors for their landscaping projects, and has been very accommodating and responsive to them. He is a fun work partner and one of the hardest working people we have ever met, we would recommend him for any landscaping project.

I am very glad that I chose Water Pivot for my backyard landscape and hardscape. First off, he introduced me to Ali Atar, who did a 3D design for my backyard so I could see everything before it was done. Ali did a fantastic job and was very accommodating to my changes and request. Then, Milad and his crew did an amazing job on my backyard installing pavers according to the design. They were here everyday early morning and work very hard the entire day. They also changed all my irrigation systems and made my backyard garden beautiful by adding flowers and plants. They did such a great job that I asked them to also fix my driveways that had so many crakes.They installed pavers and turned my driveway like a brand new house. Now, that all my backyard and driveway looks brand new, I had to do something with my porch. Milad suggested that I install tiles and he brought one of his best contractor, Farzin Golpod to install the tiles. Farzin, is very detail oriented and takes his time to do his job not just good but great. Maild is very honest guy and it was a pleasure working with him. I would recommend Water Pivot to all my friends and neighbors who need a good landscape/hardscape company.

I have worked with Summit Landscaping and Elaine for several landscaping designs at our house. I learned that she used to work for one of the world’s iconic retail store design teams, and this background is reflected in the sophistication and professionalism of the work. Most recent was a stunning front yard patio rock garden. We’ve had neighbors driving down this way to admire it. One told me it belonged in Sunset magazine... Elaine has an exceptional eye, and her designs will transform ugly and forgotten parts of your property into beautiful living space. She also chooses the best plants and flowers, integrated perfectly and suitable for our climate. Her crew is very reliable, and all our projects finished on time.

We hired Sam from life time remodeling with his crew to do a complete kitchen remodel. In the meeting Sam recommended a kitchen design that we like a lot. And it turned out to be fantastic just like I wanted. Between my job and this job he made the entire process very easy and seamless for us. I decided to have the remodel done while I was part time traveling overseas. A friend of mine told me we were crazy to have the job going when we were not there to check on it, but because they have a app that I can see all the time updates from process of the job i decided that it is fine and I went. the app they use is very easy to use it fits a construction company in Silicon Valley, that is one of the reasons why I am so impressed with this company :). Turners out, it worked out great Sam's crew did the job and moving along he sent me pictures from the job site to make sure I'm fully informed in all the details I returned to an almost-finished kitchen. The quality of the work and attention to detail was excellent. The team was conscientious about confirming the details with us before each portion of the job, making sure that each decision was agreed with me and were clearly careful in their work. Sam's crew was friendly and pleasant to have in my home with the kids. I decided the last minute to paint the entire interior house during the project, and asked Sam if he could book movers as i was overseas. Rather than hire movers Sam's crew packed up our entire house themselves, moved it to the garage, then moved it back just in time for my return!!! I thought for sure something would get broken but everything made it back upstairs in perfect condition. They even set out my son's toys for him to find when we got home which was much appreciated by a jet lagged preschooler. It was a small thing but showed the care and respect the crew has for their clients. I'm very pleased with the resolute on the paint and kitchen. I would not hesitate to use Sam or anyone from his company life time remodeling again or to recommend them to anyone :).

We had a short time window and limited budget to get our backyard done. John came in, and gave us a quote quickly. Work started shortly and was done within two weeks! All work was within budget, no surprises, and the yard looks beautiful. All in all, John was super easy to work with and did a great job. I highly recommend him.
