Questions and Answers
What we may not know about you?
I personally work at all of my projects and am very hands-on when it comes to the design as well as the installation/execution of the job.
What types of jobs are the most common?
The most common job we work on is usually sprinklers and planting. We see a lot of homes with poor irrigation and that leads to over and under-watering issues.
What kind of questions do customers ask you?
I don't know why my yard doesn't look good. The answer usually always is first and foremost irrigation. Either too much or too little. Also sun and shade, soil, fertilizer, etc. can play a part.
What do you recommend to know before hiring you?
The customer should have some idea of what they need or want as far as style, water needs, budget and time frame.
Do you offer any service after finishing the work?
Follow up visits, phone questions, help with maintenance and recommendations on what else can be done to further enhance the landscape.
Worked for a residential care for the handicapped and took care of all their properties in the north county. Always loved working with people and the outdoors.
How can we save money hiring you?
The biggest waste in the landscape is the watering. Poor sprinkler systems wasting water every week week after week. Poor coverage forces a customer to water for the weakest link
What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
Are you licensed?Do you work on the job or just bid the work and send non-English speakers?
What are you most proud of?
Complete new home installation of plants, sprinklers, sod and lighting. It's always nice to start from scratch to design a sprinkler and lighting system instead of fixing other's messes.
What is important to know about your profession?
Landscaping can be a lot of fun and doesn't need to be expensive. A lot of things can be worked on in steps or phases. Also beware of the cheapest bid as this can almost always lead to more expenses in the long run.
How many projects do you average in a year?
From 100-240 depending on size and the total job requirements. We do it all from small to large installations and re-dos.
