I thought I can YouTube and fix some dead patches of grass in my yard. Well, I learned the hard way that something like this needs years of experience. I pretty much f'd up 1/2 of my lawn and needed help. In comes Jose and his buddy... sorry forgot his name, but an amazing person and super friendly. Jose and his buddy came in, took a look and gave me a price to have the entire area with new sod. Pricing was good and based on other reviews, I decided to cancel other contractors and stay with Jose. Jose and friend came in the next day, on schedule and went straight to work. Explained to me in detail on what he will be doing. He also spent a lot of time adjusting my sprinkler system to ensure that I have enough water for the new sod. A few days later, I couldn't be happier. I have decided to replace my existing landscaping guy with Jose because he was so friendly and the work was exceptional. Highly recommended!
Chris has been great! We are not yet done with the project, but he has helped improve our irrigation system so as to reduce our water use while simultaneously increasing our food production.
If there were more stars to give Cody I would. Talk about class, professionalism and a guy that runs a business the right way. Absolutely recommend him for any job. I hired him to replace some sprinkler heads and a couple chewed up lines. However he also assisted me in testing my spa water chemical levels and offering sound advice on the upkeep which he did not have to do. I'll be using him for all future jobs as well. Thanks a lot Cody! Britt
Water leak in front yard. Miguel came by and checked it out and found it not to be sprinkler leak but a main water pipe. He called to inform me and gave me a fair estimate and even suggested I get other quotes. He did the repairs with a co-worker who was also good. They had to remove part of my cement walkway since the pipe was underneath. He let me know that before re-cementing the area dry. Miguel was very personable and explained more than others would have. My neighbor grabbed on to him for handyman work and she was very pleased.
Mark analyzed my pond and waterfall for potential leaks, and the need for a filter system and a better chlorine and pH control program. He was able to start and complete his work within two days from the initial consult, cleaning out the pond and stream, sealing some cracks, and hooking up a filter. He also explained maintenance and chemical testing and control of the water, and included a test kit. I'm sure this will greatly improve the quality of the water in the stream and pond. I've been very happy with his work.
Gilberto updated my entire 30 year old sprinkler system by relocating valves underground, replacing sprinkler nozzles with water saving nozzles. Great job but a little slow.
I had Jamie replace my backyard grass area with stamped concrete due to wanting to conserve water. The project turned out beautiful and all my friends love my new backyard. Jamie was very helpful in making suggestions on how to accomplish the new look for my backyard
Javier did an excellent job with our water feature issue. He responded very quickly and was very flexible in his schedule to meet and review our issue. He offered a very fair rate to diagnose and then ultimately fix our issue, which he did very promptly. Our home water feature now works flawlessly and I know even more about how to maintain it properly to avoid future issues. Thanks you very much Javier!
Elder Jerez is a very knowledgeable landscape designer. He did a decent job for our backyard. We had around 2000 sqft area that need to put concrete on with patches of artificial turf. He did a thoughtful analysis on our drainage system, water drip system and wiring system. Construction quality is above average. Elder is very pleasant to work with, we had a good experience with him and his staff. He will meet your demands on design changes and fix minor defects that shown up during construction. One thing needs to improve was the scheduling. Our backyard project was delayed for one week due to material and resource constrains.
We had an emergency with our sprinkler system that caused us to have to turn the water off to our entire property (yes, house included) for over 24 hours (which started on a Thursday). Then it was Friday, and there were 2 other, separate (non-related to Bruce) irrigation guys, whom we made appointments with, that were supposed to come repair the problem, and they both no showed. I sent a desperate request out on Thumbtack at 3p on that Friday afternoon, praying that someone would respond. Otherwise, the earliest anyone was willing to come was Monday! About 10 minutes after I submitted the request online, I received a response from Bruce with a very reasonable quote to fix the problem, AND he would come right away. At that point, I would have paid him 2x, even 3x what he quoted just to get the problem fixed so we could have our water back on... I sent him a photo of the issue, he said we had options to fix it, and came out - on a Friday afternoon, after 3:30p, in traffic. Talk about heaven sent! Bruce was very honest, and gave us options of how to fix the issue. Since the supplier was closed by that time, Bruce took care of the issue for the time being so we could get the water turned back on. He said he would price out the parts when the supplier opened in the morning on Saturday, and would not charge us extra than what he quoted. Sure enough, Saturday morning I received a message with quotes for parts and he said he would be back in the afternoon to complete the repair. He showed up and finished the repair, AND saved us money! He is very reliable, honest and took care of what we needed. We have hired him again already to repair the shut off for the sprinkler water line. We would highly recommend him. He is truly a good, hard-working man. THANK YOU!!!!!!!
I am a first time home owner, and after having some bad experiences with some plumbers, i tried Thumbtack and it provided me with a good list of folks. Luke was very thorough in locating the source of a water leak in our garage. Also his workmanship is excellent, and was glad to have utilized his services for this job in the end.
We have worked with him on several projects ranging from landscaping to flooring and other handyman type projects. He is very professional, punctual and delivers quality work. He documents his process which is very helpful and provides detailed itemized invoices. Working with Jason is a pleasure!!
Came out right away. Gave me very in depth information about my pond, what could be happening, and the actions he’d take to figure out what’s wrong. I was over the top impressed with his attitude and knowledge. I would highly recommend to anyone with a living or non-living water feature!
We had him come over and repair a pondless waterfall that we've been having leak problems for years. I gave up trying to self fix it. In a few hours he was able to completely repair the waterfall feature and even installed a water level sensor at cost. The work was done efficiently and cleanly, all without messing up the shrubbery that we had planted around the water feature. Both he and his wife were a pleasure to visit with. We feel we have an expert to call or email anytime there's an issue with our waterfall in the future. We highly recommend his services whether it's a new install or a repair.
I gave Nick a call after checking out his website because I needed someone to replace my pool filters and he went above and beyond! While changing my filters he took the time to ask if I've ever tested the water for chemical balance (which I hadn't in a while) found out it was off and he easily corrected it for me! He definitely knows his stuff and actually cares. I wont call anyone else for my pool needs! Thanks man!
Matt turned a small yard of unkept bushes into a sophisticated and extremely usable urban retreat complete with a water conserving irrigation system and lush drought resistant low maintenance plants and grasses. He is an absolute professional and I would highly recommend him for any landscape design work.
We had need to replace a standard mailbox with a large, locking one and assemble a bookcase. Glen was punctual and got right to work. He was knowledgeable enough to know that the existing post for the mailbox would put the opening out of postal regulations, so he cut it down to avoid future problems. He then immediately set to work on assembling a pressboard bookcase we had in the garage for years. There was some water damage to the cardboard backing, but since we were not concerned about looks as much as function, he cut off the damaged portion and finished it lickety split. We then did a quick walk-through to point out some issues in the house to see if they were in his skill set for future visits. Very pleased with the work. I have just recently sent him a notification for our next task for him.
Extremely fair prices and always courteous. Will only sell you what you need when you need it. Always gives great advice for what pond issues you have our may be wondering about.
We recently moved to San Diego & although we really enjoy it here, we greatly miss our Colorado country home. Shawn obviously listened carefully to us as we described many of the marvels of Colorado. He created a beautiful, pondless steambed. The sound produced is not only soothing, but perfectly natural. Additionally, we are able to comfortably carry on a conversation, not needing to speak "over" the water sounds. The colorful flowers, artfully placed, add the final touch, completing our backyard escape. Shawn, although discussing & making a couple of changes in the plan, was able to complete the job in the estimated 2 weeks. In addition, the work site was kept tidy from start to finish, allowing us to use the backyard without concern for our safety. I highly recommend Shawn to anyone desiring to work with an honest, talented, professional in creating a beautiful water feature, guaranteed to compliment their yard space.
