I own a home on a half acre lot. I had the entire sprinkler system overhauled with new valves, sprinkler heads, solar monitor. I replaced some sod. I had a new walkway installed with pavers and expanded the back patio area with pavers. I had the large planter box redone with new plants and a water fountain. Chaparral also removed two trees and replaced with new shrub bushes. I had a new walkway brick retainer wall installed. I originally had budgeted about $12K for the landscape work I wanted done but one thing led to another and I relied on the owner's (Fernando) recommendations and the bill had reached $25K by the time the dust settled and the optional items were added. The job took his crew about three weeks to complete. Chaparral does nice work but it obviously can get pretty pricey. There aren't a lot of good landscape contractors in my area so it was difficult to do much comparison shopping for estimates. My conclusion is that you get what you pay for. Chaparral cost a lot but they also did a lot and the quality of their work was good and I don't have any complaints about their work. Fernando wasn't very easy to reach on a daily basis since he does not spend much time at the job site but rather has his foreman and crew handle the daily remodeling tasks. He does want you be happy with the finished product so he is a contractor who ultimately cares about quality of his company's work. The place does look good and I'm getting compliments so I can't complain too much about the cost.
