Juan and his team were fantastic and was able to help us top off a tall tree about 20' in our backyard. It was a very old tree, and we've already had a huge branch break, so it was due time we got that taken care of. They were professional, very responsive on Thumbtack to get an initial quote, and then quick to text back when we were arranging the job. We will definitely hire them again, as well as recommend them to friends.

Arisel is a great communicator and is very responsive. I had him quote my backyard, but decided to only get the front yard done for now. I had so many weeds in the front yard that I needed it to be rototilled and for sod laid down. He came by to take a look, then scheduled the work to be done within a day. He gave me recommendations on how to maintain the yard and it's looking great!

From my first interaction with Sara over TT to when she met me at my home to provide a quote was ah-mazing. She knows what she is doing. I was doing my due-diligence and got 3 quotes from other landscapers (including Magnificent), their quote and energy was the best! When you find good people you know it! So this is how my experience went: Submitted what I was looking for via TT Got a message from Sara Scheduled a time for her to come out to give a quote Got a quote the next day Approved the quote and scheduled a start day which was 3 days after Paid my deposit, they got started The estimated time was a week, but they did it in 72 hrs aka three days. Was and am I happy! ummm yea! I got exactly what I wanted and made some really cool friends. That's a Win-Win! ============== If you are looking for good people, good service, good everything - use these folks!

I had a backyard pond & statue removed. Matt and I met first to go over the job. He called to confirm he was coming at the time we had set up and arrived on time. He removed it in less time than anticipated (it was hard work as it was concrete). He went about it in a logical and methodical way and was careful not to make a giant mess in the yard, and remained mindful of the plants nearby. He made it seem so easy, I wish I had done this years ago. I learned Matt is a carpenter as well and I would definitely hire him again.

Wow! Came home to find my project completed with more quality than I expected! Carlos and his father Carlos and their assistant installed the irrigation for my new vineyard with high quality subterranean adjustable drip systems that I’ve never seen before so it’s great to turn down during too much rain and turn up when there are droughts. Carlos and Carlos installed new sprayers for my 1000 bulbs and planted rosemary and Spanish lavender. They trimmed the palm trees and fertilized the palms so beautifully just like palms you see in Los Angeles! Wow and then I asked them if they could fix my Christmas lights and said they don’t have much experience but they would figure it out by tomrw!!! Honestly I’ve had nightmare landscapers in the past and have had nothing but wonderful interactions and performance out of these guys. My warmest wishes to these hard working men. Merry Christmas 🎁🎄!!!

Just moved into the area and starting my new job so the front and back yard was severely neglected. The front yard was knee high in grass as well as weeds and the backyard was over run by tall weeds. We wanted the weeds gone and lawn maintained but knew it was a ton of work. Came home tonight and the front and back yards looked awesome! I'm confident my neighbors won't be mad at us anyone :) I highly recommend Walter. Looking forward to working with him from this point on.

Bin completely transformed our backyard with some small, but important updates. He and a worker removed the tin roofing from our pergola, sanded and painted an existing wooden bench, and replaced concrete pavers with grass. He also reinforced the pergola structure by replacing and adding a few new posts and refreshed it with a new paint stain. The concrete pavers were repurposed to lay a path on both side entrances of our backyard. Bin was professional and punctual in completing the work in the time estimated and responding promptly to feedback, all at a reasonable cost. We look forward to working with him again.

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 couldn't be any happier with the outdoor landscaping from Reyes Lansscaping. They finished the entire backyard in less than 2 weeks! That included Pavers and all. My backyard looks completely brand new! Very professional, fast, and reasonably priced. I would definitely use Reyes Landscaping in the future and would definitely recommend them to all my family and friends!

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.

I have known Duenas Landscaping for about nine years. I contacted them from a business card they left in my mail box one day. I tried them on cutting three trees in my backyard and I was totally satisfied and impressed. They cleaned up afterwards and hauled away the debris as agreed. I gave them another job later on in my front yard(re-paving my driveway, changing my car-port supports and landscaping). My neighbors were so impressed they asked me if I would recommend them. I did not hesitate to do. NOw, at least five of my neighbors have used Duenas Landscaping, some on a regular weekly basis. I would NOT hesitate to recommend them for any landscaping projects. They are reliable, trustworthy and clean. Manuel Duenas, the owner, is one good individual and a very honest person. You can call me for reference any time. Ray C. Belmont (591-3063)

Perhaps the most knowledgeable professional I have had the pleasure of meeting through Thumbtack, Edward deserves his 5 star review and then some. I am in the process of transforming my backyard garden, and as such, the scope of my project went from planting some new flowers, to “hey honey, we should install a brick patio out here so we can enjoy the garden more” I considered going the DIY approach, heading down to Lowe’s, grabbing some supplies, and just ‘layin down some bricks.’ I am very happy I called Edward instead. He took the time to listen to my goals, educate me on the various steps needed to achieve these goals, and explain the pros and cons of hiring the right people for a job of this size. Going above and beyond the call of duty, he showed me several samples of potential building supplies (way better than anything at the local hardware/landscape supply store) and created a real time, line by line cost AND time proposal for the project, not just a price tag. We look forward to working with Edward and his team at System Pavers!

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!
