Outdoor Landscaping and Design
Michael and his guys were professional and did a great job completing my landscaping needs. Job included reworking existing front landscaping, and putting in new beds, plants, and a tree in the back yard, as well as adjusting irrigation in the back accordingly.Dec 16, 2016Verified

Michael did a great job.Sep 21, 2017VerifiedAustin LushScapes's reply
Thanks Michelle, your flexibility and working together to find something that worked for your tenants (including them in making some of the design decisions that we did not anticipate), is what made it a successful project. I'm so glad you are happy and would love future opportunities to work together.
Sprinkler and Irrigation System Repair and Maintenance
Michael arrived ahead of schedule and even texted with an ETA. After arrival, he immediately reviewed the sprinkler system, and made me aware of the problem (including an estimate to repair). He immediately proceeded with the repairs and was asked to contact him if I had any future problems with the system. Very helpful and professional.Mar 21, 2018Verified
Deck or Porch Remodel or Addition
Michael was really good at trying to understand exactly what we wanted and helped us visualize what it would look like. He came back with additional suggestions that we loved and incorporated. It felt like he really listened and wanted to build something special for us. His price was fair, quality of work great, and we will use him and recommend him highly!Sep 6, 2017Verified
Fence and Gate Installation
Michael Blake is very pleasant to work with. I have just short of two acres to fence in so it was a significant project. The outcome of my privacy fence was to my satisfaction and completed within the time frame Michael estimated with only one day delay due to rain. I now have a beautiful fence and can enjoy my pool in privacy. I'm very happy.Mar 31, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We will always provide you with a written estimate of the work to be performed. A lot of landscape construction requires excavation of the subgrade, since most of the time we can only guess what is underground it is difficult for us to provide a 100% accurate proposal of work to be performed. We do our very best to share as much information as we can based on our previous experience. Unfortunately sometimes we come across things the homeowner did not even know was there such as old patios 2 feet underground and things of that nature. While those are rare, they do happen from time to time. I make sure any costs are understood before any work is performed.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Understanding the issue the customer is experiencing is the first thing and the only way to do that is to listen. Next I try to over communicate ideas, potential solutions and most importantly costs so that there aren't any surprises.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In order to maintain state licenses we must attend continuing education on an annual (at least) basis.
