Recent Review: Fabulous, Demo of patio much more difficult than expected because underneath the tiles was about 6" of concrete. Though they didn't ask for it, I paid them more than was due under our contract. The new patio is even better than I had hoped for. Workmanship is perfect and clean-up was very good. Can't recommend them highly enough. Don M, La Jolla

Greenstone
Recent Review: Matt at Greenstone did an excellent job with his team in our backyard. He was there to plan, give us ideas and best of all do more than we contracted for, just to make our vision come true. The team that he has were very good at what they did and consulted us at every stage to make any changes needed. I would recommend Greenstone to anyone that wants their backyard to become a dream oasis!!!

SD Home Turf Synthetic Grass Lawns
Recent Review: Overall we're happy with how the backyard patio turned out and the support we received from Cale Abramson. He was upfront, honest, and always quickly replied via email, text, or call whenever anything came up. Cale provided us with a free estimate which was ultimately honored, including the additional discount for Angie's List members. We also received estimates from three other well rated businesses we found on Angie's List but SD Home Turf was the cheapest by at least $2,000. The contracted crew was always punctual and the whole project completed on time. The quality of their work was good not great but we expected that since SD Home Turf was the cheapest out of the four estimates we received. At the conclusion of the project we noticed some minor cement splatter and light damage to the exterior of the home. This was fixed for free a couple weeks later which was greatly appreciated.

System Pavers
Recent Review: My name is Phillip Johnson and I’m writing this review to let the supervisors and management of System Pavers know how satisfied and happy my Wife and I are with patio job that was done on my home by Designer, Cindy Wight and Project manager, Dustin Nichols. The work was done professionally and in a timely fashion. The men that did the work were awesome. Bottom line, the results are fantastic. We will certainly call System Pavers for any jobs we may have in the future.

Precision Landscape Maintenance Inc
Recent Review: This job was an "enhancement" of a job that Precision did on my backyard in November 2014. At that time, I had the backyard landscaping ripped out, artificial turf installed, and a paver patio installed (cost: $9,000). I had made it known to them from the beginning that my yard has a drainage problem and I wanted to ensure it would be addressed when they installed the patio. But after the install the problem persisted: rainwater did not drain properly away from the house and a layer of white powdery salt was forming on top of the new patio pavers from effervescence percolating up from the ground and through the pavers. After notifying Precision of the issue in December 2014, it took SIX MONTHS of discussion and waiting to get the issue addressed. The company was resourceful: the paver company furnished the replacement pavers for free (RCP Block & Brick) and Precision did the demo/installation labor for free; I just had to pay for the new drainage ($2000). I felt that was a fair offer. By early July I had a crew at my house doing what was supposed to take a week. Instead, it dragged on for 11 business days over a three-week period. Worse, there was no daily supervision of the job, so the crew did not follow the designer's plans as outlined on the diagrams and made (bad) decisions on their own. This led to more delays, removing and re-installing patio pavers, re-digging drainage pipes that were not connected properly, and general confusion. I was not kept in the loop for anything. I was not home when they were working, so I had to ask my questions of the crew each morning before I left for work, and then email my contact at the company (designer Rico, with whom I'd worked on this job for a year) of my concerns because he was rarely, if ever, on the job site. In fact, in the midst of this mess, he sent me a polite email saying he was leaving the company on good terms and then he was GONE the next day. I didn't even have a chance to respond to his final email. I then had to try to explain the status of my job directly to the owner and the owner's wife (office manager) to get things corrected, and even after that point the unsupervised crew was still screwing up. In the end, though the handiwork was very nice for the re-worked patio, I was very disappointed with this company's management and question the quality of the underground drainpipe work that I can't see. And I did not appreciate that the crew blew out a circuit on my enclosed patio then neglected to say anything to me-- I discovered it after they'd left. All those incidents aside, the yard looks nice and Precision did solve most of the issues (hence the overall B rating), but it took a year of frustration and waiting to get to that point.

Dame Landscape Inc
Award 2018Super Service Award
Recent Review: Enrique was the foreman on the job. He was the one to come out and get all the information initially in order for Steve to give us the estimate. Enrique was very easy to work with and very responsive to our input. He had two other employees with him. They all showed up every day at 8am on the dot and worked hard. (The one guy would jog across the yard...he even jogged when he was pushing a wheelbarrow!) Steve also came out at least one time to check on the work. They always kept the work site clean. Enrique was very helpful in selecting the flagstone from KRC. We had some flagstone left over from previous work that we'd had done, and Enrique incorporated it in the patio. KRC delivered some flagstone that we didn't like -- it was too thin and had too many small pieces. Enrique had it returned and we got what we wanted. (We know from previous projects that selecting flagstone is a time consuming process if you're particular about what you want.) The patio turned out great, all pieces are very level and were installed very well. The planter beds and edging pavers also turned out very well. Overall the work was terrific and we're very happy with the finished product. We've had them do irrigation work for several years and will have them come out again for irrigation as well as any other landscape/hardscape projects we might do. We received several other bids. One bid was DOUBLE what we paid. One contractor was going to do only the plant work and use a sub-contractor for the hardscape. One contractor wouldn't trim the bushes/trees or remove the trees and stumps we wanted out. Dame Landscape was our one-stop shop...they did it all so we didn't have to work with different contractors.

Recent Review: We're so glad we chose California Smartscape! We met with several landscaping companies before choosing them, and we found the entire team at California Smartscape to be more knowledgable, attentive and professional than all the other firms we met with. We had a very clear idea of what we wanted to do with our landscaping plan. Richard and Mark really helped bring the ideas in our heads to life by completing the design and using their landscape knowledge to help us make choices on how to lay out our new yard. Once the design work was completed; Jay, Bob, Marcelino and the rest of the crew were fantastic. The entire job took about 3 weeks. The entire team was meticulous in their approach to the job. Our yard was kept clean and tidy despite the chaos of a major job such as this. Everyone was ultra-responsive to our questions and concerns as the work was being performed. In the end, our landscape project turned out an incredible success. What previously was a wasteland of dead grass, overgrown cacti and ugly poured concrete pads became a park-like oasis for our family. The hardscape work is first-rate, it looks great and drains perfectly. The irrigation installation was also perfectly done. And the sod and plants/trees selected by Mark and team make our yard a dream to spend time in. My only negative in the whole experience is in a bit of fencing work that was performed. As part of our job, the team relocated some fence sections to a new location in our yard. This required them to install a new fence post to support the re-use of an existing gate. Unfortunately, the post was installed out of alignment. And it's in a concrete footing. So just months after the job was completed, we now have a fence gate that sags severely and drags on our patio. Since the post itself was installed incorrectly, no amount of tinkering with the gate will solve the problem. So at some point I'll need to spend a weekend ripping out the very same gate and post they installed and re-doing it correctly so the gate can swing properly on a level post.

FGreenstone
Terrible, and nothing but problems since. Greenstone installed a flagstone patio for us on 2/13. At first things appeared to be fine, but soon after the sand didn’t harden and was extremely soft. We contacted Matt immediately regarding the issue. It took several phone calls, emails, and text before he came back out. Once he did, he confirmed that the sand shouldn’t be soft and that they would be back out to fix. When they came back in March, they had to pull the entire patio up and replace. Again the sand didn’t harden, and as we were staging the patio for furniture realized we had been shorted 10” of space that we had paid for. So, we contacted Matt again. It took several more weeks into April for him to come back out to look at the sand and the measurement. They again pulled the entire patio back up and replace, including giving us the 10” owed. Unfortunately, the sand is still soft and will not last long. Matt is a nice guy and we like what he is doing from a recycling standpoint, but his response time for warranty work is horrible. We went from Feb 13th – April 25th, and wasted our money on a quality patio. Matt said on numerous occasions that he would be back out to see how the patio was doing. It's been several weeks since reinstalling, and have yet to hear from him. Again, very poor response/customer service after install.

From first contact to finish James was the project manager and was always available and eager to make us happy. ?We are very happy with the results of our paver project using Install-It-Direct. ?From our first meeting with James to working with the installers Jose, Israel, and crew, they were all pure professionals. ?Everyone was very experienced and knew exactly what to do to make the project look perfect. ?they showed up when they said they would and worked hard. ?Pavers take hard work to install them correctly and all involved knew exactly what they were doing. Along the way, James made some suggestions, and we were glad to have his experience and knowledge to help add the finishing touches that make this project turn out amazing.? Install-It-Direct does not just install, they make sure that you are satisfied and their work is top-notch. ?If you are even "considering" having them install pavers or Turf, stop considering, and call them right now! ?We are so glad we did. ?Thanks James, Jose, Israel and crew on an amazing job.

The work was done very intermittently. There was never a commitment to return at a specific time. The turf installed looks patched together in a checkerboard fashion rather than buying another bigger piece to fill the area. The irrigation is not running properly, resulting in overwatering some areas and under watering others. I have contacted the owner to come and fix the problem, but he has not shown up yet. A word of caution: owner and I reached a price for the overall work before the job commenced and it was laid out in a handwritten document which I signed and left with the owner. At the end of the job, he tried to charge $2800 more than the agreed price, but the work was only what was agreed upon originally. I recommend a formal contract with this company with specific work and dates outlined in it. Overall the yard looks great, but the experience with follow-up on irrigation and the price issues and timeliness have made me disillusioned with this contractor. The overall price was $10,289, which made me expect better service.

We were responded to quickly when we called and the set up date was fairly soon. They arrived when they said they would and finished in three days instead of the possible five to seven quoted. They cleaned up after themselves fairly well. The supervisor then sold us on a sealant and charged us more for that work. We weren't quite as satisfied with that as with the patio, as they weren't as thorough as he'd promised, but they made an extra effort to come a day earlier so we could have it ready for a party the next evening and we appreciated that a lot. We would recommend asking for the sealant up front and getting it in the original contract. Our overall impression is that they did an excellent job and we are very happy with our new patio.
