  • 2/5 stars

    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.

    After a bad scratch from one of her dogs on my leg and constant containment problems while we were working unfortunately our relationship did dwindle some client rating **

    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

  • 5/5 stars

    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.

    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

  • 4/5 stars

    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 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.

Question and answer

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. The sprinkler work I did on October 8 was at a residential house whose sprinkler heads had poor coverage. Plugging several unneeded heads improved the pressure for each zone. coverage was further increased by movi ng a few heads,and changing a few spray heads to rotors.
A previous job was removing a certain area of lawn at a residential entrance way an d improving the entranceway with a variety of shrubs, perennials, ornamental grasses, river cobble, moss rock , and bark mulch.

Another job was a complete remodel in Littleton , including tree and stump removal, layers of rock and old plastic weed barrier removal, and recreating these areas with earth berms, a low profile decorative wall, and new plantings of shrubs, grasses, and perennials. existing materials on site were also reused such as cobble and moss rock. the sprinkler system was then updated by replacing old sprinkler heads with better coverage, adjusted to the right angle and height. The lawn was then soil prepped and reseeded.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. I would like to talk to the owner, or someone knowlegable.
References and pictures of past projects are important. Pricing must be competitive, along with any warranty provided. Professionalism during the whole process is also very important.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. As a landscape designer with a degree in landscape architecture and over 25 years experience, I am proud to have served the Denver front range area.
An initial meeting begins the design process. Opportinities and constraints of the site are discussed before developing an actual landscape plan. Pictures of past projects help show how landscape materials work together.
Depending on the clients needs, an estimate may be in order at this time. A landscape plan or drawing may be required, especially for new homes or properties.
Once the plan has been drawn, a second meeting is in order. If the drawing is acceptable after a brief presentation, pricing and scheduling are discussed before beginning of work.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. working with clients and satisfying their needs, implementing a plan or design that works best forr each individual project, and of course seeing the final results

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. I started out as an engineering draftsman for my dad then went to CSU and have a degree in Landscape Architecture, moved to California and worked for a landscape architect and also did architectural drafting, then moved back here to Colorado in 1988 and desiged landscape plans for several different contractors.
For the last 25 years I've been gaining experience every year doing installation as well as design and working with clients to combine their needs with my experience to create successful projects
