Sara came out to our home and gave us a great walk-through of Magnificent's gardening services. She took her time to look over the plants and shrubs, even pointing out the ones that were damaged by our recent termite cleanup service. She's clearly very knowledgeable about the kind of plants that can be grown here, she had great ideas for developing our garden. Looking forward to working with her, will keep updating this review.

D' Franco landscape designed our whole irrigation system for our garden. The team was incredibly professional and very knowledgeable about irrigation. Great communication in regards to the planning and then reviewing the final project. Very happy we chose D'Franco landscape for our irrigation, excellent at what they do! Great value as well.

We hired Metthew to build a 40' long 3' high retaining wall and then move a LOT of soil, in order to level a back garden area. He was knowledgeable, reasonable, and exactly on time for all planning meetings and work meetings. Most notable was his very clear communication, ability to suggest solutions, and quality of crew and work product. Matthew is highly recommended and we will CERTAINLY work with him again!

My wife and I would give them 6 stars if I could. Gustavo and his team did an awesome job building a new fence for us. It was a somewhat complex job involving two different architectural designs (one across the front of the property and one down the side) plus installing a new iron driveway gate. My wife and I watched in amazement as they worked carefully, taking the time to get everything just right. They did a really terrific job for us and we would recommend them highly. Please feel free to contact us as a reference anytime. Thanks so much to Gustavo and his great team.

To create some additional space in the top floor of my garden cottage, I wanted to take advantage of the high ceilings and have a loft space installed. It was important to me that none of the floor space underneath was compromised, and wanted to avoid using supports from the floor. Jasper came over, took the time to understand my needs & vision, and offered a tremendous amount of support and advice as we pursued the design. He presented me with different options, and was sensitive to my pricing considerations. Ultimately, we decided it was best to pursue a minimally viable solution, and then expand on it as my needs changed. Within a week, Jasper showed up with his friend, a truck full of lumber, and got to business. He showed up at noon, and was done by 8pm. He was happy to make adjustments and modifications I requested weeks after completion (at no additional charge), left my home clean, and really took pride in his work. He was friendly, professional, and stood behind his work 100%. It was truly a pleasure to have Jasper come and turn my loft space vision into a reality that was far better than anything I could have imagined at a great price and on budget. I look forward to using him again for my future projects.

I couldn't be more pleased. Pablo submitted a very reasonable quote, started work promptly and worked steadily until the job was completed. I am completely thrilled with the work he did. I cannot recommend this friendly, competent, hardworking professional more highly. I'll definitely ask him again to help with my lawn and garden projects. Really excellent.

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!

Richard transformed my rough garden design ideas into a space that I truly enjoy. His attention to detail in construction and landscaping is impressive. Richard cleared the overgrown chaos, built a large planter box, 2 trellises and installed a feature paver and gravel patio. The fence was repaired and reimagined, trees and bushes pruned properly and a gravel pathway installed in the side yard. Richard took particular pride in his work, was punctual, professional, reliable and pleasant and always left the workspace tidy and ready for the next day's work. I highly recommend Richard and Pacific Garden Artistry for garden design and construction.

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!

John Islas did a fantastic job artfully landscaping my front yard in San Carlos with drought tolerant plants. He stacked stones to terrace a gently sloping front yard and filled it with beautiful succulents and flowering shrubs. He also installed lights that flanked our front steps and highlighted some of the plants. There was an unforeseen leak with the outside water pipe which the irrigation was hooked up to, and he promptly fixed it. People have stopped and complimented me on the yard and have asked for his card. I would absolutely hire him again for other projects as he is considerate, hard working, knowledgeable, and has a keen eye for landscape design. For my small budget, he gave me so much!

I am very glad that I chose Water Pivot for my backyard landscape and hardscape. First off, he introduced me to Ali Atar, who did a 3D design for my backyard so I could see everything before it was done. Ali did a fantastic job and was very accommodating to my changes and request. Then, Milad and his crew did an amazing job on my backyard installing pavers according to the design. They were here everyday early morning and work very hard the entire day. They also changed all my irrigation systems and made my backyard garden beautiful by adding flowers and plants. They did such a great job that I asked them to also fix my driveways that had so many crakes.They installed pavers and turned my driveway like a brand new house. Now, that all my backyard and driveway looks brand new, I had to do something with my porch. Milad suggested that I install tiles and he brought one of his best contractor, Farzin Golpod to install the tiles. Farzin, is very detail oriented and takes his time to do his job not just good but great. Maild is very honest guy and it was a pleasure working with him. I would recommend Water Pivot to all my friends and neighbors who need a good landscape/hardscape company.

Chris was very helpful and professional. We had two different options we were considering. Chris developed a plan for each. There was an additional charge for the second plan. He started by working with my wife and I to understand the general concept of what we wanted. He then went through many pictures of plants to identify those which we preferred. Once he had an idea of what we were looking for, he sat down and developed the two designs. We went over each plan and he again showed us the pictures of the plants he had specified in the design. There were a few minor changes, but we were very satisfied with both options. Chris is very knowledgeable about the Lawn to Garden reimbursement programs and he guided us through the necessary steps to apply for our refunds. He also recommended a few landscapers. We used the plans to request bids from each of the landscapers and chose one to build our garden. We are extremely satisfied with the final product and much of the credit goes to Chris.

Max & team revived our backyard area. They turned our embarrassingly shabby storage area to a beautiful new outdoor lounge space with deck, flower garden and fire pit in a matter of 3 days! I was stunned with the speed and and am so pleased with the quality.

Working with Deborah Cowder for garden design and regular maintenance is a delight! She is extremely knowledgable, has an excellent artistic sense, is an excellent listener and very responsive. Her customer service is beyond compare. We are so happy with every aspect of our garden, including sprinkler and drip system, and a vegetable garden too. I cannot recommend Deborah and her team highly enough.

    He is very creative and built a garden glass house that we both designed. He did not have to use one nail. He is a master carpenter. It is better to pay a flat fee than by the hour.

      About

      I've been designing gardens in the San Francisco Bay Area for nearly 20 years, so I have a very good feel for designs from modern to traditional, from xeriscape to Japanese and cottage gardens. Having written two books on garden design and having served as senior editor of the past three editions of the Sunset Western Garden Book, I feel that my knowledge of plants is extensive - although there are too many great plants out there for anyone to say they know them all!
