We finally found a reliable and respectable landscape contractor that we felt comfortable with and that could implement our plan and were willing to do so. We had an old rather large deck completely removed, the property re-graded for patio stonework front and back, new garden areas, lots of perimeter cedars, etc. The pricing was reasonable and only increased as we added a few things (small fence, sod, etc.) that was not included in the original contract. Tomas was always a professional, being diligent and reliable in first providing us with 3-D images of the new plan and then getting down to specifics in helping us choose the appropriate materials. We balked at the time frame! We didn't realize the work could be done in such a short period! But Davel has a rather substantial crew led by Dave whose experience was invaluable as the project took shape. In total work days we believe it was only about ten! Obviously, it took longer than a consecutive ten day period because of rain delays, etc. The crew worked hard, diligently and as fast as humanly possible. We were quite impressed at this, as well as, that the project was started well ahead of schedule and completed shortly after the original intended start date. Davel worked seamlessly in conjunction with the electrical contractor doing trench work for buried lines and the irrigation contractor. We highly recommend Davel to do landscaping.
