I contacted 5 landscape contractors for estimates and gave each completed blueprint design. Lowest bid was

Landscape.

's bid came in over $7000 more than
Sacramento Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
's for same design. (

- over $20,000,
Sacramento Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
- $13,000). When I called
Sacramento Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
and told him I was going with another contractor that was significantly lower cost than his bid, he seemed upset and told me that he worked on bid for over 2 hours and that I didn't even let him present it. I reiterated that I had to go with cost savings, he tried to talk me out of using lower bid contractor insisting that he would do better job. When he realized that I had made my decision he said (2-3 times), "you get what you pay for...." and then he hung up on me.
I've seen several of

's projects in the East Sac neighborhood and he definitely does quality work but is one of the more expensive contractors in the area. I didn't appreciate his immature reaction to his bid not chosen for my project.

was great to work with and paid attention to all the details, and designed landscaping that would be easy to take care of and thrive in our yard -shaded with large trees in front and sunny in back. Our neighbors have all remarked on how good the new yard makes the house look, and we're enjoying spending time in our yard much more. I would definitely recommend him.

Overall the work produced went OK, but the transaction ended very poorly. The guys that did the work were great, the wall and plantings and DG sitting area is great quality.....it's just that it seems if you're not oozing cash..the sales and such aren't that thrilled to work with you.
Just look at the reviews- the one's where people spent $29k or $60k have 100% glowing reviews.Thing is that over time- perhaps we would spend that much but they shot themselves in the foot by poor customer service and lack of respect. Plus - shoot maybe expand a bit and have folks that handle smaller jobs? The interaction started by us making a call to get a quote. We made an appt. 1st appt was cancelled /rescheduled..a very personal issue that I didn't need to know the details on to feel bad for being disappointed that the appt was rescheduled at the last minute.
So, a few days later a person came by to give a quote. The quotes seemed to take a long long time..like a week or a week and a half. We asked for many things..then pared it down to just those that we wanted to do in the first phase.
Between the two quotes- many of the numbers didn't make sense, didn't add up right. I don't like to catch people in errors but when it comes to spending hard earned $ I do check the math and try to understand the job..not just look at the total and say...whatever. Plus, there was a dump fee of $320 for them to clean up after themselves- which seems odd- since most other contractors I've worked with have clean up as just a part of their responsibitily-cost of doing biz.
We overlooked and let the sales person fix the numbers and agreed on a total. It's not that the total amount was that crazy--but the reasoning behind the $$ amounts were flawed..thus our confidence in them providing an accurate quote waned and made me doubt if they would be responsible when it came to delivering the job. Like most businesses, I would assume there are set prices for various work. For example- a basic install of a decomposed granite area- you would think it would be priced per square foot-but doesn't seem to be so. One completed area was one price...but a quote for a 2nd area of a smaller size-was quoted higher! ?
So, we got the 1st phase done and then after the odd quoting decided maybe this place is kinda flakey and maybe just get the irrigation expanded for now and think over who will do the other work.
But apparently it's not ok to change your mind and just request a less than $1000 task(irrigation expansion) to be done...because we never heard back from the sales person after that request..even though there was a standing appointment to meet to discuss next steps...they were a no show, no call, no email.
Not like we were changing our minds every two seconds..it's just that we had questions since those numbers weren't adding up right and we felt like we wanted to understand what the work was. You have to be 100% clear on these jobs or you don't get what you want. But no response.
Also- never go the promised paper yard design mailed to us..just emailed version.
Also- just a few weeks ago we got a survey from the owner -on which I described my concerns and bad feeling-yet he never called to ask what happened or anything. So- to all the descriptions that Mr.

is so fabulous- I have not seen it.

I love
Sacramento Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
! They were everything I could ask for in a landscaping company. They were on time to all appointments and really respected my work schedule and availability. From initial contact to completion of the yards, they met every deadline on time and completed the work to my high level of expectation. More than anything... this is a nice and genuine company to interact with! The owner,
Sacramento Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
, is really friendly and has an incredible sense of humor! I don't think I have every laughed so much while signing a contract (a typically terrifying thing to do). The landscape designer was really attentive and listened to my list of plants I like and do not like. He really took how I function in my yard into consideration when designing the initial plan. The work crew was wonderful! I felt completely comfortable and respected by all the men on the team. The project manager,
Sacramento Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
, was especially amazing and stayed in close contact with me throughout the whole process. He was available via text message... which worked perfectly for quick questions and check-ins.

As for the actual work, I could not be happier. My yard is everything I dreamed of! Yes, there were changes made to the original plans but
Sacramento Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
stayed within my budget and discussed all the options with me before making any changes. I am especially pleased with the beautiful pavers and trellises they put in along the side of my house. The took a problematic area I avoided and made it into a very beautiful and functional part of the yard. The finished produce is amazing and I have had many neighbors comment on how beautiful the yard is and how pleasant the whole process was for them too.

I would use them again in a heartbeat! I'm kinda bummed I don't have another project for them now!

The project went well. Despite some unforeseen hiccups (low grade soil, rocks, etc.), the project looked better than expected. My wife and kids felt safe around Will and his staff.

Mr.
Sacramento Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
responded to my call and came to my home to discuss our needs and design a plan for a backyard project. Mr.
Sacramento Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
showed up on time and was very informative and helpful. We were confident we had chosen the right man for the job and felt the $75 fee for the plans was worth the time he spent with us. Sadly, however, we never received the project plans, despite our attempts to contact Mr.
Sacramento Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
. (There had been some issue with his glasses, his assistant told us.) We were promised plans and contact which never materialized. We finally realized that the $75 was a good lesson and that we would not be willing to invest more in this company, despite our affinity for Mr.
Sacramento Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
himself and our respect for his knowledge of his trade. A big draw for us had been his promise that we could have the project completed in about 10 days after finalizing the plans. It's now been many months and I am checking out Angie's list for potential reliable landscapers who can do the job.

I bought sand and gravel from them on three different occasions. Every time, they provide good service at the front counter and also on their material yard. They provide a nice clean environment in their office to order the materials. Sample of materials and price list conveniently provided in the office, so there are no unwanted surprises. The material loaders are courteous, prompt, and cautious not to damage your truck or car during the loading process. The material lot is clean, clear marking on the material storage bins and ample of space to park your truck or car for loading.

I live on a very large lot and they delivered a truckload of mulch to my property and dumped it where I asked. They were prompt and efficient and they deliver for free with a minimum of 4 cubic yards, which is not much if you have any size yard.
