The crew did an excellent job. They were professional and left my yard in excellent condition. They are not necessarily the cheapest crew, but I have had those over the years. You get what you pay for, I would hire them again in an instant.

Over probably a couple of months Dan, the owner, and his crew took our front & back yards back to bare dirt and then forward to beautiful, drought-tolerant areas. At all times Dan was responsive and helpful and that is continuing even now, nearly a year on. I thoroughly recommend Sculptured Gardens.

First review I ever have written but Dan and his crew deserve the praise. He turned out garden into a mini Garden of Eden. We have color year round and our water bill has been decimated. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him!

From the start to the finish Dan was always available or on site to be sure everything was done to our satisfaction. We got a beautiful backyard and new decking around our pool. He had wonderful ideas that were well within our budget and we didn't have to lose all of our existing plants. He worked around everything that he could to create a new and beautiful backyard for us.I would recommend Day T...

Dan promptly called me back and assured me that he does this kind of work all the time. He told me that wouldn’t personally be available for my job as he was on another site. He told me that one of his guys Francisco would be there to take care of it. He showed up on time and did a wonderful job👍👍👍

We are very happy and pleased with the job that Dan and his crew did. The crew was very clean, right on time and did a wonderful job. We had a problem in the area of the backyard with the dirt flowing into the pool. Thinking that is was from the work that was done we called Dan. We were out of town but he came right over to see what the problem was..it turned out it was a broken sprinkler not part...

I called Dan and he came out within a day to give me an estimate on re-doing my side yard area from a vegetable area to something that was water tolerant. We also had a problem area in the backyard which needed to be graded and brick work..

Dan and his crew were a pleasure. He is an honestly nice guy, who did not oversell himself or his work. They provided a reasonable estimate, pretty much in the middle of other estimates, but had a better focus and knowledge of the plant materials to be used. They were always on time, and cleaned up reasonably well after their work was done each day.  They actually finished a day earlier than estim...

Dan is an artist and I enjoyed watching him plan and implement his design. He did not produce detailed drawings on paper. He took notes, visiting multiple times to get a feel for the sun angle and shadows at different times during the day. He developed detailed bills of material. The day materials were delivered and the installers arrived he used spray cans of marking paint to lay out the planting...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We own a modest home but we were willing to pay for low water landscaping that would be attractive and soothing to be around. Our old water consuming boring landscaping and lawn were stripped out.  Dan Tyson then designed and directed installation of new landscaping in front and back of our home.  He created an extraordinary low water design using plants with unusual and delightful combinations of shapes and colors that are an attraction all year long.  We have more birds, butterflies, and especially humming birds than we've ever seen in our gardens before.  We also regularly get neighbors and passer-byes stopping to ask "who did your landscaping".  We've handed out 4 stacks of Dan's business cards and have enjoyed showing our gardens to many people.
