Canterbury provided by far the best experience we've ever had with any sort of landscapers/contractors/remodelers.

and
South Pasadena Landscapers Provider Name Locked
are not only incredibly professional and punctual, but they are thorough, helpful, and knowledgable. In the planning stages they had us go through a thick binder full of plant pictures. Then they came and studied the lighting in our yard. Once the project began, work was done precisely within the time frame they had told us, and they stayed in our budget.

's design was beautiful, and they had lots of interesting, great ideas (including one outside their purview that involves adding a railing/fencing to a drop-off area; they don't do fences, yet they shared ideas because they care about the overall look of the yard). They re-did a portion of our yard that another landscaper had done over a year ago. None of the plants had been growing well, and it simply didn't look very good. Canterbury made a significant difference. They care about QUALITY and are clearly very good at their jobs. Once the landscaping was completed,

gave very thorough instructions about maintenance and sprinkler settings. They intend to follow up to make sure everything's going well. We absolutely intend to use them again to do any remaining landscaping work around our house. I highly recommend!

Gwyny and her crew are fantastic. You can tell immediately that Gwyny loves her work, takes pride in it, and knows what she is doing. I have worked with other landscapers in the past and was always disappointed because plans where not executed as originally discussed. A contact person would come talk to me at the house but then send a crew and no longer be present at the house after that first meeting. What is great about Gwyny is that she will meet with you, and then she will be on site working along with her crew for the entire project. They worked efficiently, professionally, and my yard turned out just as I hoped! The don't take one too many projects at once as to give full attention to each client they work with.

gardening will definitely be my go-to landscapers from now on.

The first Pacific Outdoor Living designer we met with passed our job onto another designer because they thought the project was not big enough for them. We liked the second designer better, so that worked out. However, after we approved the designer's plans, we were passed off to a landscape team, who doesn't seem to interact efficiently, if at all, with the designer. The plan was very poorly executed with key elements, like steps, not built to code. After holding back last payment, they very begrudgingly came back to "fix" the problem, but didn't. We had to hire another group to come in and rebuild the stairs. We are bidding out the landscaping again because many of the plants they planted have not survived and we need to redo the irrigation since it was done poorly. I believe they have a few landscape teams and your satisfaction with the company may depend upon which crew you are assigned. Ours didn't follow the plans designed by their company.

We were in the middle of planning a major pool/backyard renovation when my wife got a coupon to sign up for Angie's List. She thought it might be good to use as a referral source for the work. I already had some referrals but she talked me into trying Angie's List. When we looked for pool contractors
South Pasadena Landscapers Provider Name Locked
had such great scores and reviews we thought we had to call them. Like a lot of other people have written, once we met Irit and
South Pasadena Landscapers Provider Name Locked
during the initial discussion we felt very comfortable with them. We were unsure of exactly what we were going to do and what we could afford so we asked Irit to itemize everything we thought we might want to do so we could see what we could afford. She was very comprehensive and the initial prices were competitive (they were average not too high and not the lowest - however like other reviews state, you get more than you pay for so don't be pennywise/pound foolish and chose another contractor because they are cheaper). We are probably not ideal customers because we don't make up our minds easily and weren't sure what we wanted to do. Irit was very patient with us. Many times she would be politely forceful in trying to steer us to strongly consider something that I didn't want to do but later became convinced we should do it (an example was the drainage system which I didn't want to add to the deck only to the house gutters). Both she and
South Pasadena Landscapers Provider Name Locked
treat the project like they are doing it to their own home and want you to have the best they can do. When we eventually went off script and chose to put artificial grass completely around the pool she was able to easily work with us and the grass installer to make it work.As other reviews mention, Irit and
South Pasadena Landscapers Provider Name Locked
are a great team that perfectly compliment each other.
South Pasadena Landscapers Provider Name Locked
's dedication and skill to the construction and pool was very appreciated. I am an engineer and a perfectionist and I watched the process happen every day. I would talk with
South Pasadena Landscapers Provider Name Locked
every day and ask questions or voice concerns. He would answer all my questions, explain why I didn't need to be concerned, or fix something that might be a little off (happened only once and I'm pretty sure
South Pasadena Landscapers Provider Name Locked
would have fixed it if I didn't say anything I just beat him to it). I watched all the construction happen and I am very satisfied with the quality of the work done. I don't believe we could have gotten better quality no matter who we used. I've only found 2-3 areas that aren't perfect in the poured areas and I won't even list them because me wife will never see them - and you would never see them. I mention this because
South Pasadena Landscapers Provider Name Locked
uses StoneScape not Pebble-Tec brand. If you look up StoneScape and Pebble-Tec you see people complain about things not being right and working with the company to fix them. Our StoneScape is great. We have no complaints. After all the quotes and discussions to finally decide on what to do, I feel we got a very fair price. In addition, I feel that they did not nickel and dime us once we started work. I believe I got hundreds of dollars worth of additional work done that they did not charge me for. Many little things came up that were just taken care of. ***One thing I will note is that anytime you are doing major renovations you should plan on having issues pop up. As we started getting into things we found some issues (like needing a well and sump-pump) that increased the cost. We were prepared for that and Irit and
South Pasadena Landscapers Provider Name Locked
did a great job of talking us through options. Many times the cost was not agreed upon before the work was done but I always felt the final price was fair. In dealing with
South Pasadena Landscapers Provider Name Locked
I always felt the price was either fair or a good deal for me. We are extremely happy with our pool and hardscape around the pool.

was a great company to work with. We would use them again and recommend them to anyone.

Haven't used the sprinkler system in a year.
South Pasadena Landscapers Provider Name Locked
made an accommodation to give an estimate early Sunday morning. 9am he was punctual; knew the problem and gave a very fair estimate...

I can't say enough about how reliable, hard-working, and knowledgeable Reed was. I learned a lot through the process, he saved us from making a couple of BIG mistakes (ordering nutri-humus on-line? make sure you know what is in it).

He completed the entire project on time, on budget, and it is absolutely beautiful! I cannot wait to put in a full edible garden!

Rapid response to email request for quote. They came out right away and got the landscaping plan and reviewed it. Came back with suggestions on modifications and provided a quote within a week of our request. We evaluated their estimate against several others and decided that they provided the best overall value (not necessarily the lowest price). They coordinated with the paving company to ensure that irrigation lines were properly installed and also electrical lines for lighting were done properly. They had all plants delivered and supervised the planting and irrigation. They subsequently helped to troubleshoot a problem with the fountain that was installed simultaneously.

was great to work with. He listened to our plans and worked with us to make sure he was doing what we wanted. He worked with the city to check everything out. The guys who came and worked on the job were great--they worked hard and they cleaned up. As we continued adding to our list of projects
South Pasadena Landscapers Provider Name Locked
was able to accommodate us. He was always willing to meet with us after work or on Saturdays as well, to talk about the project. Our yard is absolutely beautiful (!)--and everything done within our budget.

’s designs have been featured in Sunset magazine on more than one occasion. He is a great guy to work with and has a talented crew. He is a professional; he will return your calls, arrives on time and is fair and gets the job done on time. He transformed our yard into the most beautiful garden consistent with the style of our Mid Century house which welcomes the garden into the house. He is truly amazing!
