Recent Review: After 3 separate quotes for some basic backyard landscaping, Rick's proved to be the best value and the most informative about what we were getting for our money. The team is very busy so the nearest appointment was two or more weeks away.  Because our job was small in comparison to much of the work Rick's team does, he was able to squeeze a half day for us much earlier than the anticipated two weeks. The crew arrived promptly when scheduled and were working before I even noticed they were at my house. What I expected was essentially a trench for the sprinklers, a dump of decomposed granite for the dog run and a dump of rocks in the rest of the yard. What I got was a very finished looking dog run with a red rock border, sprinkler ran everywhere I had requested and a smooth and clean layout of rocks in the rest of my back yard.  What I must point out is that all of the quotes I received except for Rick's made me feel like I was not really worth the time. It was nice to have a crew come out and treat me like my little job was  just as important as those ten times the cost. When we do actually know what we want to do with our yard and are ready to spend some money, Rick will be who we call.

Recent Review: Kevin Lawrence, the owner of Community Landscape Management, has been performing my weekly yard maintenance for the past year.  We decided last fall to convert the grass in the front yard to a drought-tolerant xeriscape environment.  Kevin and I came up with a design (he created it, I made tweaks here and there).  Kevin, a professional landscape designer, very  capably took my vision and translated it into reality.  He also provided me with a detailed contract for the job. Kevin's crew arrived on time the first day and steadily worked every day until the job was complete.  The project was completed a couple of days ahead of schedule even though there was a rainy day in the middle of the work.  All of Kevin's workers speak English and have professional gardening and landscaping skills.  The foreman involved me in all decisions along the way so that no rework was required. Since completion in February, Kevin has carefully monitored the new plants and when a large pampas grass plant failed to thrive he promptly replaced it. The biggest surprise of the entire job was the price!  I had no idea how much all of this work was going to cost but I was anticipating having to scale back some items  as I had a fixed budget.  When Kevin told me the price for the conversion work it was so low that I was able to add the rear yard flagstone seating areas, refinishing of the gravel paths and  additional lights for the front yard landscape lighting system and still come in on budget. I love my new landscape and my neighbors love it as well!  I received more than my money's worth and this is an investment that will continue to pay off with lower monthly water bills.

Recent Review: This company is very professional. Mike, the owner of the company, came to meet with me, & go over my drawings & wish list. He was back to me within 2 days with a computerized drawing, detailing types and sizes of vegetation. When the bid came in a little higher than someone else's, Mike worked with me to lower the price per plant a little. They started the job on time & finished it on time- all within 7 days, start to finish.

Recent Review: Very impressed with everyone involved with the entire project. All appointments were kept and everything they said they would do, they did, plus. Everyone was very friendly, considerate and polite. We would feel comfortable recommending Jeff's Lawn and Landscape, Inc. to anyone considering a similar project. In fact, several of our neighbors saw the work and are now talking to Jeff's about their yards.

BSchilling Horticulture Group Inc
I had seen some pictures in the SNWA calendar of a yard that I really liked. Later I saw one of the same pictures in the zip code magazine and it identified it as Schilling Horticulture group. I was sold. I called and when I first set up the appointment they said I should do a “field design” since I was really only looking for plants to use. We set an appointment and when Norm came out he sold me on doing a full design as he indicated the entire yard could be done for our budget of 10,000. I will say Norm was excellent. Very personable and really knew what he was talking about. We really liked dealing with him and were fine with the up sell. We had to make another appointment with the designer to do a walk through and relay our ideas. From the beginning, I let everyone know that we already had spent over a year researching what we wanted, how we wanted the yard to look, gathering a list of plants, compiling pictures of example of other yards we liked and had a specific design in mind. The reason we called a landscaper in the first place was that it got overwhelming with all the choices available and I wanted some help on the plants – what would work best where. When we did the design “meet and greet” we walked through the yard and went over what we wanted. Some things we were open to suggestions, others were pretty firm. What I did not like was the designer being negative about our desire to have the fake grass. I don’t care if you don’t like it, it’s my yard and fits in with my lifestyle. I live here – you don’t so keep your negativity to yourself. We continued and gave her pictures of everything we wanted and spent a long time trying to convey the aesthetic we wanted – Desert jungle. The next week they came out to measure the yard. As we had already started on some things and had a good idea on other areas, everything was laid out to account for future items (grass, pergola). It took over an hour and a half so it seemed like they were getting all the true measurements. Four weeks later we met for the design proposal. I was a little surprised by how long the whole process took. We made the initial call in February and did not see the design until the second week of April. When we did our front yard, we got three quotes/designs from three companies (all from Angie’s list) and that whole process took less time. I was really hoping for a lot as I loved the SNWA yard (which turned out to be Norm’s yard) and expressed how we wanted that. What we got was not at all what we wanted. The designer totally discounted all the things we had already put in and the areas we laid out. She then did not give us items we specifically asked for, like an evergreen hedgerow in the back raised beds, instead it was grasses. My husband and I were not happy. And when we expressed this to the designer she was snippy. We were not rude but did say we were disappointed as we were expecting more plants and the fact that she didn’t seem to listen to what we wanted. I knew we were specific in our vision which is why we had dozens of pictures that we went over before the design and walked through the yard with everything we wanted. And it seemed like none of it mattered. Norm was running late but when he arrived, he was able to rectify the situation and make suggestions. The designer pretty much shut down and didn’t even want to come up with alternatives because we didn’t like her design. This collaboration on what plants is what I really wanted in the first place so I liked this. Again, I cannot say enough good things about Norm, I just wish he had a different designer. In a week we had the revised plan which was much closer to our original intent. We still had not seen the prices for any of this. Two weeks later (a total of 2 months from the first on site visit) we finally get the proposal. Yes it made it under our budget but included nothing. We had from the beginning said we would do a lot of work to keep the cost down, but not once did I expect the entire budget to be used for plants, drip and mulch. I’m not paying anyone 10,000 to lay some drip line, plant 40 plants, and shovel mulch. For that much I expected the elevation berms to be included as well as all boulders. I am willing to pay more for quality work as I firmly believe you get what you pay for, however I won’t pay more than I think is fair. And this did not seem reasonable to us. We spent less on our front yard and it included a hand stacked slate wall, decomposed granite path, cedar mulch and nearly as many plants. This was also the highest bid at the time but we felt the cost was justified. To make sure it was just not that we had unrealistic expectations, we looked into true costs. We had purchased 8 cubic yards of cedar mulch before and knew that cost. We had installed drip lines and checked the cost for all the items included. We went to STAR nursery and looked at plant cost. We also asked for a line item break down so we could see better where the money was going but we were told they could not do that. The previous landscaper did a line item breakdown, including profit. I’m ok if you list out $2500 for overhead and profit. I get that you have to make money – it’s your job. I don’t expect to pay the exact same as if I did it myself. But I do want to see where my money is going. In the end we could not justify the cost. Even $2,000 less and we would probably have done it – and that still would have been more than we had spent on the front yard (which had more things to it). We did spend the $750 for the design. If I ever have any plant issues, their company will be the first I call to take care of them as we do trust Norm’s knowledge of plants. Anything that requires the designer I’ll stay away from. As for the backyard, we will be installing all of it ourselves and while using some aspects of the design we paid for, we’ll make it even more like we initially wanted. I think we would have been better off with the initial field design we originally requested and saved everybody some time.
