Bob was very easy to work with and incredibly accommodating. He started our project sooner than I had expected and was really quick too! He did a great job and will certainly hire again and will recommend to others.

Land Leveling and Grading - Small Scale (less than 1 acre)
We had a sink hole appear next to our house after a bad storm which resulted in a flooded basement and a damaged yard. With another storm headed our way, Bob urgently brought a team to fix the broken sprinkler line, fill in the hole, and properly route the water flow along the house. He planted new landscaping and made the outside of our home more beautiful than it had been prior to the storm. I can't thank Bob and his team enough for their speed, professionalism, and attention to detail.
It has been one year since Bob remodeled our backyard. While we had some hiccups in the process, what we have is an absolutely beautiful backyard that we love. Bob's work and artistic eye created a truly wonderful, unique, easy to maintain area that we (and our neighbors) use on a regular basis. Thank you Bob.
Last month I reviewed Bob from Arbor Landscaping upon finishing up our project. At the time, I gave him 5 stars. Today in July 2015, I am forced to write an updated review. While Bob created a nice 'redo' to our backyard, it was with much frustration and difficulty. I put this aside upon completion of our project because I was happy with the outcome. However, it is important to note that while Bob did nice work in the end, he was extremely difficult to work with. On more than four separate occasions, I found myself in arguments with him over extremely common items (request for a detailed plan, removal of materials per our contract, request for removal of warrantied plants that had failed, as well as others.) The most recent issue was regarding our flagstone patio. The joint polymer sand was not working properly and two lawn chair legs fell through it. When I contacted Bob, he said I needed to get new furniture. He did not offer to come see what was going on, and only when I contacted the owner of the materials company, did Bob respond and help to remove and repair. He has not, however, followed up to see if the new repair has worked and instead has left it to the owner of the sand company to deal with. I am disappointed to have to rewrite my rating, but after I have given several opportunities for a professional and friendly follow-up, Bob has not come through. The yard still looks nice and I am happy with most of the results, but I did not have a good experience working with Bob.
I hired Bob when I googled Japanese landscape design /Denver and Arbor Landscaping popped up. Of all the people I spoke with, Bob was the only one who described our project to be 'like a painting' in which the process of design is more an evolution rather than a blueprint to be followed. You must trust his instincts and knowledge (which may be difficult for some). But In return, you will be stunned with the result. We have a unique design combining elements we never expected with those we required. We did a near complete backyard renovation and what we have is now a beautiful one-of-a-kind backyard. Thank you so much Bob! I recommend that Bob change the company name to reflect the artistry that comes with his work.

Working with Bob was a wonderful experience. Not only did he come up with a basic plan for our project but allowed us to make changes/additions while in progress. The outcome is amazing and we love it. We cannot thank Bob and his crew enough for giving us more than we ever could have imagined. I would definitely encourage others to consider Bob for their projects. If we ever needs his expertise again, we will give him a call. We are recommending him to everyone we know.

an extensive planting plan added color form line and texture to large foundation rock areas
I found Bob with Arbor Landscape from the Thumbtack website. I selected him after interviewing and receiving bids from him and several other landscape specialists. His bid was very reasonable, especially compared to some of the others. We had just completely remodeled our house and needed a complete redo of our entire yard. This included grading, a sprinkling system, new sod, planter beds, over 40 shrubs and flowers, low level lighting and edging. Bob also arranged to have a large paver stone patio installed as well as a fence and a pergola. Everything turned out absolutely amazing. Bob listened to us. Took the time to find out exactly what we wanted and made it happen. Every time an issue came up, Bob went above and beyond to resolve it. A couple of plants didn't make the transition and Bob replaced them right away. He was always on time (early most of the time), and the entire neighborhood raves about our landscaping. I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out.

Kevin was great to work with, trusted me with landscape decisions during the installation as well as me listening to his needs and ideas.

Bob is experienced landscape design. He left us with the quote and drawing. He started immediately and the job was excellent work. Bob created the look of a creek running between trees and plants. The yard is now full of fall colors, neighbors are stopping to tell us how much they like the look. Very happy customers. Highly recommend bob and his team.

Bob installed a lovely waterfall and rock garden with accent plants. He was a pleasure to work with. He was very professional, yet flexible with specific requests and preferences. The job was completed in a timely manner, with attention to detail and finish. My yard looks fabulous--ready for entertaining!

Joan was a joy to work with, I made a couple of adjustments to her nice water feature the following spring and took pictures
Bob did a great job for us. He came out, sketched a landscape plan, wrote us a proposal, went to a nursery to select plants, did the installation in our backyard over two days and made modification to our sprinkler systems and beautiful flagstone work in the front. He was easy to work with and reasonably priced and fast. When one of the plants didn't take he replaced it the next day no questions asked!
I would highly recommend Bob and Arbor.

Bob Schuler did a professional job, well organized, efficient and easy to work with.
Bob was great - he was affordable and got back to us quickly and was out fixing our sprinkler system in no time! Would definitely use again.
