Recent Review: Hector is very likable. Most of his work was good quality. He has a strong pattern of making promises and breaking them. After paying so much for this project, he promised a full warranty, said he'd get it to us in writing, but never did. The fountain stopped working 20 times in two years. He promised repeatedly to fix it, but strung us along for two years. His lawn guys were fast and sloppy, cutting the trunks or maples with their weed eaters, almost killing them. The backyard was a swamp for a full year, and he repeatedly tried to fix it, but never could. I finally noticed there were overlapping sprinkler heads. taking one out fixed the problem. He promised to fix a gate he installed, and to refinish fencing, but never did. Whenever I called, he promised to be out the next day, but never came when he said he would. after being paid in full, it was difficult to get him to finish the project, including handrails for the steps. One of our guests fell before he finally got it installed. Had we taken the low bidder, I could have dealt with this disrespect, but not for $110k.

Recent Review: I found Focal Point on Craigslist and arranged a meeting with the owner Ted. We set up an appointment and walked through the scope of the job. After agreeing on what was to be done, I had to get on the calendar and wait for my turn. His company stays very busy. The rain in May further complicated the schedule. Then one Tuesday, Ted called and said they would be out Thursday to complete the work. He and his crew came out and did the entire project in one day. He also found a problem with the irrigation that was unknown to me. So he fixed that as well. Everything looks great and I am very pleased. My neighbor even came over and was admiring the work and picked up his business card. I am already on the schedule for fall clean-up.

James Landscaping Inc
Recent Review: I started working with James Landscaping in September 2014. Rhonda, the owner, came out and talked to me about what I wanted, took a bunch of measurements, and let me know to expect it be six weeks before they would have a plan ready due to the amount of business they were currently handling. In mid-November I approved the first plan. I then had to run it by my homeowner's association who met in December and did not approve it. We submitted a revised plan in January which was also not approved. Rhonda then stepped in and arranged an on-site meeting at the end of January with the HOA to talk about the plan in person with all involved parties. In February 2015, after much haggling, we finally ended up with a plan everyone could agree on. James Landscaping's participation throughout this entire process was vital. The installation was performed at the end of March and took roughly 3 1/2 days. I have had them change a few minor things since then, but James Landscaping has had no problem in working with me to achieve what I want. I'm very happy with the look of my new front yard and would not hesitate to use James Landscaping again.

Clay's Clippers Inc
Award 2018Super Service Award
Recent Review: We have used Clay's Clippers several times for Landscaping Services (design, planting & hardscape). Christal knows her plants! Her designs are great and she keeps in mind our goals & uses for the yard. She's chooses the plants at area nurseries but works with us when we have plants & trees from different nurseries or if we want to transplant a current plant. In 2010 they designed & landscaped our entire back yard including a water fountain bed. In 2011 we added a potager garden with raised beds & an arbor. In 2013 they landscaped the entire front yard & side yard along the driveway using boulders & wide stone border. In 2014 we added a butterfly garden & bed along the other side of our house complete with a flag stone path. We love it & get compliments on our yard regularly. Clay's Clippers is a fabulous company with honest, talented, & hardworking people. I highly recommend them.

MRZ Contracting
Award 2018Super Service Award
Recent Review: I had the pleasure of discovering MRZ Contracting through reviews I saw on Yelp. I had a fire pit installed in my backyard next to my gazebo and pool area by another company referred to me by my neighbor (big mistake). I should have paid more attention to the design, but it is hard to do that off a drawing. The finished product was an eye sore due to the poor design and poor workmanship. The finished product was so bad, I did not allow the company to step foot back on my property to even try to dress up the pig. I started searching on Yelp and I liked what I read about MRZ. I called them and set up an appointment to see if the mess I had gotten myself into could be corrected. On the day of the appointment Clayton Zachary arrived and I showed him the backyard. Clayton spent an hour with me looking at the new fire pit, it's flaws, and discussing replacing existing landscaping around the gazebo and pool area since it was very "outdated". Clayton spent the next couple of weeks designing a solution that would create a "seamless" area to tie everything together. The pool, gazebo and fire pit had different patterns, colors, and they looked "choppy" together. Clayton sent me viewpoints and videos of what his solution would look like, including the landscaping. It is amazing, almost a year later, the video is a mirror image of what my backyard looks like today! I was so pleased with Clayton and MRZ that I had my entire front yard redesigned and updated. This was a huge undertaking, as I live on two acres. The result was stunning. I cannot tell you how nice it is to pull up to your home and see landscaping that looks like something out of Better Home and Gardens. My wife and I hang out in the backyard as much as possible, enjoying the views and relaxing. I also need to mention that MRZ worked on a leak issue with my pool and got a water fountain working that had never been operational. They also redesigned and repaired several areas in my front and backyard where I had a drainage problem. These guys get it- superior design and creativity, superb customer service, and excellent supervision of their subs. There was never any pressure and Clayton communicated with me throughout the process. I highly recommend you interview this company if you want to customize your outdoor living areas or change your landscape architecture.

Recent Review: The grade work went quickly. Building the stone wall required several weeks primarily due to rain delays. Drainage issues around wall occurred even with french drains and were fixed immediately (added drainage grates at corners of the wall). The rest of the landscaping occurred as planned. We communciated primarily by email and occassionally by phone. My wife managed the project and worked out any issues which there were few for such a big project. The workers were all polite and addressed any questions we had. Upon completion, my wife and I were very happy with the work that was done and have received several complements from the neighbors.

Overall, this experience has been extremely frustrating, disappointing, and expensive. Much of what was done had to be done a second time at additional cost in order to be done correctly. Our only request schedule-wise was that the contractor not work on Wednesdays, as we could not be home on that day. This request was blithely ignored. He showed an remarkably cavalier approach to our desires and requests and did not display a willingness to stick around and oversee the work that was done. About halfway through the project it began taking more and more effort on our part to receive any information or help from the contractor. It frequently took two or three phone calls on our part to receive a single informative phone call in return. The privacy fence and the iron gate are the only parts of the job that were done to our satisfaction. Approximately 50% of all flowers, bushes, and trees have died within 6 weeks of planting due to poorly placed sprinkler heads. When installing the fountain they assured us that we did not need to worry about installing a screen to keep debris out of the pump. Within a month we found that this was not the case. The fountain barely works due to the lack of screen filtering out leaves and other detritus. After laying down the sod, we paid for the crew to level it properly. They did not. As a result there are many bumps and valleys in the lawn. To alleviate our drainage problem it was recommended to us that we have a second french drain installed along with the original one we had contracted for. This did not alleviate the problem. We were then told we needed overflow bowls underground and attached to one of the french drains. We decided that due to the considerable problems we were having with drainage in our backyard, we should add to our contract, and have a flagstone walkway installed in order to avoid sloshing through the mud. We accepted the quote of $1700 for this task. The stones used for this job were 1/8" thick Colorado Flagstone. The crew proceeded to break the tiles into square shapes, ruining half of the tiles in the process. The crew leader appeared unfamiliar with the job at hand. After failing to properly install this walkway two separate times, we were forced hired a second company to come out. They did it correctly, the first time, using new 2" thick Colorado Flagstone, and laying it in concrete and sand. The cost for the second company to not only install a walkway, but remove the previously improperly installed walkway, was only $800. Later we found out that the actual cause of our drainage problem was that the crew had buried several sprinkler heads approximately 4 inches under the sod, and they had installed far too many sprinkler heads for the size of our yard. We were thoroughly unsatisfied with this overall experience.
