    David's super nice and really easy to work with. His pricing is also very competitive - he was able to work with us to get costs within budget. He also stands by his work with warranties on his plants and irrigation. We had him completely redo the front and backyards, including building 3 vegetable boxes, digging new irrigation, installing 2 rows of vines with trellising, and finally replacing the side fence and gate. We are definitely happy with the quality of work and can't wait to see how our garden will look in the coming years. There were just a couple paperwork issues, but not dealbreakers. I would recommend you either overcommunicate your expectations and maybe exchange numbers with the on-site crew chief in case any questions arise. RIP Mystery Plum Tree. We don't know who planted you and we don't know who took you, but we will miss you!

    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.

    Very not-trivial front-yard landscaping project completed by David and his crew without a hitch. Project included removing large amount of soil, building split rail fence with 9 hand-built stone veneer columns and red wood 4x4 rails, installing stone veneer around the front of the house (about 80 linear feet), installing about 800 sq feet of artificial turf, adding about 5 tonnes of cobble stone, truck load of mulch, planting a tree and about 40 plants, adding drip irrigation system and trimming 4 medium size trees.

    David was very responsive and attentive. He was able to do an inspection on a same day request and got the job done within the next day. He and his team helped us with tree trimming and reinforcing a slope (due to a fall in a big oak tree) by laying boulders and net over the root area. After the work was done, David also followed up closely to ensure that we are happy with the job. I would highly recommend anyone who needs landscaping work to engage David and his team.

    Was not the cheapest, but was chosen because of a good balance of schedule, cost, and knowledge about tree trimming. I had him trim a very large pine tree and do some minor trimming on a couple other trees. There were some miscommunications after the project started, but David worked it out to make the situation right.

    Overall very good experience, I'm very happy. David did what we requested in the beginning, and was very flexible to changes. The only caveat was that it took a little longer than we had expected. Especially the dumpster blocked our driveway for much longer than he told us. Given it was year end, I could understand.

    Front yard landscaping: David Muhoberac's crew were efficient and knowledgeable. They got the job done quickly and efficiently. Need several more months to assess the ultimate "look" of the area. So far, so good.

    4.5 stars. David did a landscape demo, french drain and DG install for me - a "smaller job" than most in my area. He still approached it with care and consideration. He was great to work with - he's responsive and willing to work with your specific needs and timeline. I was impressed because he worked out a solution for the site restrictions and 1) saved me money 2) avoided removing neighbor's fences 3) did not damage existing sprinklers. Other contractor bids were higher, required significant additional costs and the given site restrictions might have caused more damage than intended. Since they did work before Christmas and there were heavy storms, some items needed to be readdressed in the new year. David had his guys come out at no additional cost to me. Really great landscape result and service experience.
