what a wonderful experience. Not many business owners go out of their way to make sure the customer knows they are valued. Steve responded to our job and within a couple hours was in our backyard looking at the project which was taking out a thick load full of previously placed cement. With our busy schedules he was able to meet face to face with us the night before the project started and had great ideas for out back yard. We decided on moving forward with the project and by the next morning Steve and his team were tackling that removal. Checking in with me and my husband constantly was a plus. When the backyard was cleared out he made sure to show me what was done and what the next steps for our project world be. Moving foward I will hire Steve again. He's local, a veteran and such a hard worker. Thank you and your team for taking this project on.

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.!

Chris and crew are amazing. My backyard was a mess and I didn't know what I was going to do. They came in here and cleaned all the junk out even taking a old building that needed to be removed. They did it all with in a few hours and left the driveway nice and clean. Now I have my backyard back to fix up for my family and I to enjoy. Thanks Chris.

Jose provides an excellent customer service. Unlike other contractors who hardly ever return my calls, Jose is very prompt in responding to texts and messages and is flexible with his time to come to the house for an estimate. When we finalized on the quote, his crew came out the next day and finished the patio and the retainer wall within a day and a half. The outcome is awesome, I no longer cringe with disgust when I look at my backyard. Thank you Jose!

Greg and his crew removed a huge pine tree from my backyard. It was in a tough location and they handled it great. I was truly impressed with their professionalism and competitive rate. I highly recommend them and plan to use them again to trim the rest of the trees in my yard.

George and his crew did an excellent job. I had a deadline to have my property cleaned up for a photo shoot for a real estate listing, George made my backyard look picture perfect. He trimmed all the palm trees, fruit trees and various foliage, weeded, and hauled off the trimmings and he did it all for a fair price. He cleaned up the front yard as well so everything look pristine. I am very pleased with Xpert Landscaping's work and will use them again.

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!

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!

Savon Pavers exceeded our expectations. We contracted to do 4000 sf of pavers on our property and they didn’t disappoint. Beginning with Wade, the designer, he listened to what we wanted, then he put together a hand drawing showing each paver that was to be installed. The drawing and the finished product are one and the same…outstanding! Each day the crew, led by Rafael, worked from 8 am to 4-5 pm. Never had a seen such a hard working group of guys put in such a hard day’s work. The detail and pride they take in their work is reflective in the masterpiece they put together. It was also apparent that Wade and the crew had great communication and they certainly delivered a top notch outcome. We could not be happier. It took us over 2 years to think about this project. We got bids from just about every paver company in the San Diego county area and no one came close to the knowledge that Wade demonstrated prior to the project. We are happy to have done our due diligence in selecting a paver company and seeing our completed job only reaffirms that we made the right decision by going with Savon Pavers. We were so satisfied with the initial project that we had them do another 2000 sf of road on our property. The place looks like a resort. Thank you Savon Pavers.

Fernando Ramos has been our gardener for many years. We had a small yard with many palm trees. Fernando made our small garden look great and took the best care of our palm trees . We now have a large yard and he has done an amazing job of transforming the backyard and side yard to a beautiful drought resistant garden. He's has also updated our lighting and irrigation systems. He does it all! We highly recommend Ramos Gardens!
