We noticed a large amount of water collecting in our side yard. Assuming a busted water line, we called for assistance. Mike Gross from Down Under came the next day and was excellent. He worked well through the day, to find the source of the leak, repair it and get the system back to operation. Beyond a doubt, Mike was excellent. He was only a little late because he was finishing a job for another...

The best part about them is that they are dependably here for the weekend, and so the yard is clean for the weekend. The worst part is they don't always do exactly what they are supposed to do. They tend to be a little late on pruning, and trimming. They swept for a while, and now they use a vacuum which makes the same noise as a blower does. There are times when light bulbs burn down, that they d...

The initial visit from Rob was great. He accommodated an early time to provide a verbal estimate. After that, I was disappointed as the job was not completed within the expected time frame (2-wks), and initial attempts to follow-up were unsuccessful. With some persistence in calling, Rob finally did arrive to complete the job. The results were terrific so far, hopefully the lawn and yard will look...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Rob came out for the evaluate the job. He was professional and understood the scope of the job (lawn and yard work, to be recurring every 2-wks). He provided a verbal estimate for the job which was reasonable. After some delay, Rob came out to complete the job which was terrific.

First of all, Oscar had to be very flexible with us.  We had another contractor (ALLStar Demolition) taking out our pool and putting in concrete and decking.  Oscar was very flexible with the other contractor and was responsive through the use of e-mails and phone contacts.  He worked around schedules in order to make sure everything was ready to plant as soon as the rest of the work in the backya...

He came out and said if you lose power to your home (which we had a while ago), you have to reset the entire schedule on the system.  He also explained that even though I was trying to run it manually, it still will not work until you reprogram a start time. He is truly professional and always gives great customer service.  Thanks Warren!!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I asked Warren to please come out and check why the sprinkler console he installed several months ago stopped working. We tried everything to get it to work, verified it had power, etc.
