    Vaquera Lawn And Garden
    Mr. Vaquera was professional and prompt throughout the estimate. He didn't try to upsell me on something I didn't need. His prices were reasonable. What stood out was his punctuality and his interactions. For the service itself, he came on time and serviced as estimated. Would refer him and request again for future projects.

    At first, I was very impressed with Mr. George and pleased and excited about the project Unfortunately, problems began occurring soon after. Right off the bat, there were equipment failures - the roto-tiller broke which then meant all the soil prep was done by hand. The rocks that were installed were larger than the ones specified in the contract and the stepping stones were not placed prior to the rocks being added. . Placing the stepping stones without removing the rocks was not easy and had to be redone many times because they also had to be level. However, the rocks were so large, I couldn't walk on the rocks or stepping stones without tripping. I was really having problems with this so when he finally agreed to replace the rocks on July 26th, I was very happy and the new ones look and work so much better. Two different areas of flagstone had to be redone due to drainage issues not being addressed. One area was because it was replacing an area where drainage was the original problem, and the other area was replacing bricks that I had laid down to keep an area free of mud and flooding so I could move my garbage cans in and out of the alley. Because polymeric sand had been used and hardened before the problem was discovered, it resulted in additional flagstone needing to be purchased. It had also been determined that some of my original flagstone would be able to be reused but somehow they had been thrown out. The drip irrigation pipes were placed directly in the middle of narrow planter areas, making it very difficult to dig holes large enough for the new plants. The plants and thyme were planted during the height of the heat wave, soil was not wet enough prior to planting and the drip irrigation was not completed until a week after they were planted. The only water they were getting was by me with the hose. The sod got planted on July 14th, the day before I was to be gone for the weekend and I was very concerned about the watering issues. I was told the timer was set for the sod, but it never came on before I left. Mr. George told me he would personally take care of it since I would be gone. When I returned home, the plants had definitely not been watered and the sod was only somewhat moist. The following morning it was discovered that the timer had been set for the wrong zone and the water had not been turned on at the valve. The emitters in the drip system finally get added on the 18th and the timer was set to run for 40 minutes in the evening and in the morning. I was going to be gone most of the day on the 19th and that morning it looked too wet, so I lowered the time for the timers. When I returned home around 5 pm, my neighbor came to tell me her yard got flooded by my sprinklers. The next day it was discovered an uncovered pipe in the drip irrigation line had been left open and apparently not noticed during the planting and then not seen because the dirt areas in the planters had been covered with weed block. Mr. George did not want me to use the timer for the drip until the flooded area dried out and I tried my best to keep these plants watered with the hose. Meanwhile, in the front yard irrigation, I was having problems with coverage due to low water pressure. I had 2 valves for the sprinklers and 1 new one for the drips. Mr. George kept adding popups and sometimes it would be okay and other times not. I asked him if maybe we needed another valve, but he said he had installed up to 12 to 14 popups on one valve with no problems. Finally on July 27th, another valve gets added along with another 4 popups. This involved more trenching because now he is also removing some popups from the existing valves so they can be spread out more evenly. It appears that has helped immensely, however now two popups on different valves have started leaking even when the water is shut off. And for some reason pop ups that were spraying fine develop problems. I found information online about check valves and Mr. George had me email him the videos. By this time Mr. George has fired all of his employees except one. His new irrigation guy seems to have the same problems getting the pop ups to work correctly and also sets the timer incorrectly. So, once again, I have timer problems because one of his employees messed up. He has another new employee who is adding mortar to the flagstone and helping out with general issues. We are getting close to the end of the job, and Mr. George has asked for the final payment. I remind him that per his contract he is not supposed to get that until the job is completed. However, I do agree to give him $2000.00 and he seems okay with that. I get a text from him on the 17th, he will send one of his employees to stain the flagstone, but it is discovered that the mortar they had just added the day before has to cure for a month prior to the staining. He calls to tell me this and I am fine with it. So now we get to why he is getting the "F". On Friday, August 18th, he sent me a text at 3:30 in the morning, that he would come that morning and make the sprinkler adjustments and install the corner popup but wanted to paid the balance minus $500.00 because the flagstone couldn't be stained for a month. Then at 5:30 am I receive an email detailing all the "extra work" he has done for me and how much more I should have paid. He again says he will come only if he gets paid and now adds that this would be the final adjustment on my sprinklers. He says the low water pressure was not his problem and never was. I email him back and remind him that per his own contract, he doesn't get the final payment until the job is complete. And not only were there trench filling issues and irrigation issues., he still had to do "clean up". I also mention that besides his contract saying he guarantees all his work for a year, his own web site specifies 1 year on irrigation. I tell him might agree to his terms of payment but only when he completes the work and if only if he honors his guarantee. Now he is threatening me with a mechanics lien and clearly states he will not fill the trench holes. And this is important Angieslist members - He now tells me that the guarantee on his website is not current and not legally binding. He states he will not buy any plants for me even though they have a 90 day warranty. He is also now accusing me of dis-respect behind his back and will sue me for defamation and will turn me into collections. He has also sent me a change order invoice for the extra costs due to his employees' incompetence. There have been other emails and texts where he calls me a thief and a liar and says I need psychological treatment or that he is going to destroy me in the courts and he is going to put so much stress on me and that I am a mean and evil person. He scared me so much Friday night that I actually called the police. I know this is a long and probably rambling review, but I feel people need to be warned. The bottom line is that I never refused to pay him, I only said I wouldn't pay him until the job was completed. However, now I want nothing to do with him. I would love to add pictures but they are on my phone and this is being written on my computer. If I can do it later and can figure out how to do it, I will post some.

    E & D Lozano Handyman Service
    Not Good! The Lozanos presented themselves as honest, professional and caring people. First visit was replacing/repairing back yard sprinklers and painting service garage door. They pointed out an aged grape arbor that needed to be removed because it was digging into my wood deck. Three weeks later Dave came out and took out the grape arbor, installed address light and shop lights that I had purchased. He also adjusted back yard sprinklers, replaced a front yard sprinkler and was going to fix a leak in an oscillating front yard sprinkler. New sprinkler broke off because it set high above the turf, leak is worse than ever. Week ago I talked to Dave and he was going to call back to set up a date to correct issues. Nothing is working right. Guess What? Dave has not called me back. DON'T GET DUPED LIKE I DID.

    I made an appointment with Babylon Gardens Landscaping in September.  The owner, Ron George came out and met with us.  He answered our questions and redid our concrete.  First they removed our existing concrete, which was old and cracked.  Ron recommended stamped concrete since we were on a budget.  It's quite a difference to see.  The color samples he presented for the concrete were just what we needed.  I chose the lighter beige color and a stone pattern.  I will use Ron again for sure.

    luis' gardening & General Hauling
    He is my man! Two years ago, I had a tree that was ruining the foundation of my house. I talked to the city to get it taken out and they finally took it out. Luis came, he took out all the cement. He graded the yard real good and got it prepped for putting in sand. He did a fantastic job. There wasn't one speck of dirt or concrete or anything else left. You'll never know he did work in there. My backyard, when he took out all those trees, he ground down the trunks down under the ground. I got a beautiful vegetable garden where he took those trees out and there was not one stick of wood or anything left. He did such a beautiful job.

    David and his wife responded immediately to my service request. David stopped by my place the evening of the day I called and gave me an estimate. He was able to schedule me in a couple of days after my initial contact. David changed out most of the sprinklers in my front yard and installed and set a timer, as I was doing everything manually. The service cost was $250 and included parts and labor. David is very friendly and good at explaining things. After he finished he gave me an estimate for a two-day landscaping job in my back yard. The estimate was reasonable so I hired him to do that job, too. David and his wife are very professional and I would use them again for any lawn repair or maintenance work .
