Domingo and his team did an excellent job at making our backyard look like new again. Backyard had almost two years of neglect with overgrown plants and dead grass and trees. Domingo gave a very reasonable price for the whole job and took only a day to complete. They cleaned up and also had good ideas and suggestions about plants and placement. Definitely hiring him again and calling him back for monthly maintenance. He is also very courteous.

Front and backyard's weeds was out of control. Contacted Otto and he was right on it with the estimate. Fair pricing and we schedule a date for the job the same week. It was a pleasure working with them. On time, does not slack off. Very hard working folks. Definitely will recommend. Fantastic crew.

You know that satisfied feeling when you find a good doctor, dentist, plumber, electrician, or painter? Well, I can add "Sprinkler System, Tree Service & Debris Removal" to my list of "go-to's". Chris was fantastic. Prompt to respond, friendly, professional, approachable. He and his team of two arrived on time, and after an assessment of the job at hand, put their head's down & got to work. My dad is 81 years old, and the job at hand was to repair a front & backyard sprinkler system. It took two days, but Chris & Team didn't stop until the job was thoroughly complete. I will use Parker's Tree Services again, in fact, I have scheduled his team to return for a hillside tree & debris removal service to mitigate fire hazard. I wholeheartedly recommend anyone searching for said service to look no further ... you won't do better than Chris. Thanks Chris!

Falanisi and his crew did a great job building a cinderblock wall for us in the backyard. Falanisi was very responsive and answered all questions. I would definitely recommend them for your next hardscaping project!

Weed whacked my front and backyard out of control weeds. Would have liked the flower bed better cleaned up, but that can be done when he comes again. I would also like a set time, so I don't have to sit and wait not knowing when he will arrive.

What started as a small project to replace a side yard with gravel turned into a full backyard renovation. We had a patchy back lawn & overgrown rose & agapanthus plants. We had everything ripped out, reconditioned, leveled and had Thomas' team lay new sod & gravel. They were unbelievably professional, nice, timely and hard working. Thomas was hands-on directing the crew & had great suggestions when asked. The entire project took 5.5 working days to complete and we're thrilled with our new lower maintenance & zen-like backyard! I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again 👍🏼

We interviewed several landscape designers and loved the vision Patricia had for our space during her initial visit. She had so many great suggestions and ideas which were the perfect complements to our initial concept. She even went out to a rock quarry and picked out an amazing and perfectly shaped stone for the entrance making a great initial impression on our guests. She’s very passionate about what she does and took the time to educate us along the way to make sure we were prepared to take care of our plants for the long haul. Patricia is awesome!

Working with David has been a dream! First of all, he is very detail oriented and great at communication. What I love most is that when there is a question or he has an idea or wants to give me an update, he texts me and responds instantly. He was also able to do an additional project for me at at an amazing price and the work is outstanding. he is very knowledgeable about everything in my garden, able to follow complex instruction that my former landscaper gave us when we remodeled our backyard, and he has brought life to my beautiful outdoor living space. I would highly recommend David.

We have Ponce do the bi-weekly landscaping clean up for our front and backyard. They take care of our lawn, and all of our tree/bush trimming, and have been great every time. Overall the team is consistent, and very quick to respond/confirm services.

Turfusion transformed my entire backyard into a beautiful zero-scape flowering oasis. They designed and implemented the whole project. They were very professional, Leo and his team performed quality work and they were on time and in budget. I called them for a minor adjustment to the drip system and they took care of it the next day.

We reached out to 4 contractors for our project. Jose was the only one that came out, measured and put together a bid. Two called me back with just a basic price per square foot and another asked for measurements and photos and never called back. I have every confidence in Jose. His bid was so detailed that, unless I change something, there is no wiggle room. His meticulous attention to this process equals a good outcome in my hardscape. He is very knowledgeable about saving water and drainage, sure but he also has very good taste. He did some design that is way better than my ideas!

I needed a lot of work done in the frontward and backyard. I had received 2 estimates before I met Emilio and he came in with a reasonable estimate and he was extremely friendly and thoughtful of what our needs were for our project. Our house is looking really good now for our Open House and I would call him again...if we weren't moving.

I echo the previous reviewer's notes on Derek. Not only did Derek do a great job, but he really helped me elevate my green thumb knowledge. His pricing was competitive and hisck tractor Jose was incredibly timely in executing the garden implementation and finishing the project. As a side, Derek himself was a pleasure to work with. Very cheery and pleasant. I highly recommend Derek.

Ian and his crew did a great job! We loved his design and his ideas. We had interview others but liked him from the start with his ideas that we would of never thought of. He committed to a schedule and kept is word. We can't wait to entertain in our new patio and entryway. We can't wait to start on phase two! Robert and Marlene
