"Purchased deal - $99 for 4 hours of landscaping. Had to ask Angies to get in touch with
as didn't receive response from service provider in more than a week since I purchased the deal and after that received a call from
...more where he suggested that $99 wasn't enough for much. Received a quote for $380 for small front and backyard (maybe total of ~100 sq ft of weeding and mulching) and went ahead with it. Not sure if $380 is fair but initially felt like bait and switch. Quality of work is good.

"We are moving into a new home and I called to have someone come out and begin lawn maintenance and told them that once we were moved in and settled I would want to get some landscaping work done. My intent was to increase landscaping in the front yard ...more and add some architectural structures for shade and landscape in the back. I wanted to be in the house however before deciding on the bigger projects. so I just wanted to start with lawn maintenance as quickly as possible.
Through purchase and escrow the yard work has not been done for about six - eight weeks.. My property is approximately 1/4 acre. This is apparently not enough to be of interest. Raoul came to my house and walked the property with my husband and indicated it would not be a big or difficult job for them to do and that we would receive an estimate and contract early the next week. He seemed knowledgeable and I thought he sounded responsible, even though he was 45 minutes late and did not call to let us know.
Despite sending mail and calling multiple times (only to consistently get an answering machine) I have never heard back from them. I wasted two weeks on the experience as I waited 4 or 5 days for them to meet me at the house. I am still looking and had no idea this would be so difficult to get a return call. "

"We were very happy with the full engagement. They handle everything very professionally. The design and estimate were very detailed. They came early and met a deadline I had for a family party. Everyone was very focused on completing the work as committed. Every thing was cleaned and all parts of the lawn that had been touched were reseeded as ...more needed.
The overall design was better than I had envisioned and is a significant improvement on our home.
I wouild definitely recommend this company to friends and would hire them again myself. "
"From the moment we contacted Shang-Gri-La Contractors they were very responsive and friendly. Chip Bunch, the owner, came out to the site to discuss the project, get measurements, etc. to give us a quote. As we were walking around the yard, we showed Chip our cracked and starting to crumble retaining wall. Chip mentioned that his company could fix ...more that as well. We asked Chip to add that job to the quote also. Chip was able to give us the quote with that one visit and we signed immediately. For the amount of work and labor that was involved in our project we thought the price was very reasonable.
We scheduled the job for June, 2014. The project's timeline was over a few days with the sod installation done on the last day. We cannot be more pleased with the results and
-Gri-La's customer service.
We absolutely plan on using
in the very near future for some landscaping projects. "
"I am pleased with the work performed by this company. They were professional throughout the process. I was lucky enough to personally see their work prior to hiring them because a neighbor was using their services. Even though my patio is difficult to access they were able to perform all the work in the time they planned with the quality I expected. ...more They stayed in contact as issues arose, gave me their recommendations and resolved any issues promptly. The workers are knowledgeable and polite. "
"Received estimate the same day I called for service. Crew arrived the following afternoon... very professional service. Removed the tree as well as a HUGE stump, and hauled away all the debris. A+ service!
was a pleasure to do business with from the start. He responded promptly to my initial call and set up a time to come over to my house and give me a free estimate as to the cost. After providing me with a fair estimate, (as I had done some research on the cost of such projects)
set up a time and ...more day that was convenient to me and my family. On the day of the service,
and his crew arrived on time and started work immediately. He and his team work well together, in a highly efficient and organized operation. The tree was cut down and removed in short order and
and his crew cleaned up all debris, even taking away a couple of old Christmas trees I had piled up in my backyard (at no extra cost).
returned the next day and ground down the stump, which made great smelling wood chips which can be used as pet litter .
is a true professional at what he does and I could not be more pleased with the outcome. The tree I had
cut down had been pushing up against our house and had done some damage to our roof and gutter. Before
left, I casually asked him if he could recommend anyone who does roof repairs. He gave me the name and number of his father-in-law, who does that kind of work! If you are looking for professional (they are licensed and insured), prompt, and courteous tree services, look no further than
"A few of my neighbors had their courtyards done with pavers, I had an estimate from the company that did theirs and I also got a few other estimates myself.
I decided to go with someone other than who my neighbors used.
Brothers were very professional and knowledgeable about my questions and concerns regarding the ...more root system of a nearby live oak. The Oak was old and the root system had spread beyond the outer sidewalk area under the ground and into my courtyard I was told they had an Arborist to call on if there was a problem.
I saw them at work, they worked hard, cleaned up after each days(2) work and took care to protect the walls outside my villa and the surrounding plants.
I asked if I could get a discount if I paid cash, they said yes.
As for the type of paver, I showed them a brochure I had gotten and the ones I liked, they in turn explained the differences, the time required to get the product and we decided on samples to be brought by later and I would make a decision.
I was able to get a better price on the pavers and get the job done sooner as I selected a sample they already had the the office.
I was lucky that my job was a small one and I was able to make of what they had, the downside being no color choice but I liked the color blend and looks GREAT.
Many complements on the work and all of the courtyards near me all all slightly different in color.
I would use this company again.
"It was a disappointing experience. I wanted some help with tree selection to replace trees, have three trees planted, some shrubs planted and some sodding done. The first guy who came out gave me an estimate but left the company right after he did our estimate. Someone else came out 1-1/2 weeks later, and the appointment seemed to be going well ...more until we were no longer on the same page as to how much sod should be replaced - he kept talking about replacing it all, re-grading, etc. - we just wanted to sod some large bare areas on our rented property. At that point, I abruptly ended the appointment since he didn't really seem much interested in doing the work I was looking for. Maybe the project was too small for them to spend their time on. "
was great to work with. He came out and did the estimate quickly and then worked with us to get the work we needed done to fit our budget. The crew that installed our landscaping was on time and did a fantastic job. 2 years later and everything still looks great.
