AAA Landscape Specialists designed and constructed a large landscaping project for my new home. David Silver was very professional and had an excellent foreman on site. David was also very responsive to my concerns, and consulted me on a regular basis. I am extremely happy with the end result which suits the site and complements my home.

We renovated our backyard with Landscape Specialists and couldn’t be more pleased. From our first meeting, it was such an easy process. David and his team had great vision yet still were flexible with minor tweaks as needed. The project cost was fair and each step completed was done to the highest standards. Their crew was on time every day and were great about tidying up. I would not hesitate to use Landscape Specialists again and have already referred them to many of my friends and neighbors. Our backyard looks like a resort in the evening and we have enjoyed relaxing and entertaining in our backyard that for so many years went unused. We are already looking for ways of using them again.

Beautiful, quality work David and Landscape Specialists take pride in their work. They have excellent attention to detail and always put their heart into a project. David's designs are unique and beautiful, and you are sure to get nothing short of extraordinary if you choose them as your landscape design option. They truly add value to your home.

The owner David was very easy to work with and took care of all of my concerns. Victor and his crew did a great job and kept the project on schedule. When all of the work was completed they did a great job of cleaning up and made sure that I was completely satisfied with the entire job.

We were very satisfied with the results. Our home sits on an acre of land in Carmel Valley, and we live in a gated community with rules and regulations regarding landscape. AAA did an exceptional job with regard to our lawn, lighting, and sprinkler system. David has a keen eye with the design of the lighting and where each fixture should be place to enhance the beauty of your yard. In addition, they took the time and effort to make sure that each sprinkler head covered the necessary space so that I wouldn't have "dry" spots that I would need to hand-water. David was very accessible during the restoration of our yard, and listened to our wants and needs. In fact, we had seen his work in our community, and that is how we found him in the first place. We would recommend him and his crew very highly.

The best Landscape Company Beautiful new yard front and back I hired AAA Landscape for a full front & backyard remodel. The crew was great & the job was done to my expectations and even more. Of course there are always unexpected decisions and challenges that show up with your yard along the way, and the crew dealt with them seamlessly & helped me with decisions I needed to make along the way. In fact, there were a few suggestions along the way to improve upon my choices and I appreciated the input and flexibility to tweak the job along the way to incorporate these changes. Also, the final lighting plan looks awesome and way better than I expected the coverage to look like! Would highly recommend AAA Landscape for your yard!

GOAL ATTAINED....when you have reached that point when you cannot wait to get home and enjoy your beautiful space!
After an exhaustive search of a landscape design company--I chose AAA Landscape Specialists. The decision was well worth it! From the initial meeting with David Silver, owner, he listened to my wants of an awesome landscape design and with his team, delivered just that. David was always reachable to listen to my questions and concerns. Dan, Landscape Designer listened intently to my desires to transform the front and back areas of my 800 SQ FT. home into an indoor/outdoor SoCal Oasis! The front included a phenomenal front deck and the back of the home with a transformed awesome covered patio with fire pit. The project also included a large amount of hardscape and fencing. Everyone in the company was competent and professional in every phase of the project: Victor's and his team were professional, clean, & competent. The final project transformed my home into a place of serenity and peace.....a place I can't wait to come home to everyday!!!! Thank you, David & team!

In our opinion AAA Landscape Specialists are the best without a doubt! David came through for us with flying colors for the second time in a row! Seven years ago we entrusted AAA Landscape Specialists, Inc. to design and accomplish all the work on an extensive project including; lawns, artificial turf, plants, trees, irrigation system, drains, walkways, curbs, planters, gas plumbed BBQ and much more for our new home. Not only did David and crew accomplish all the work before the expected completion date but also exceeded all of our expectations in every way. Therefore, it should have been no surprise at all when we called David again without hesitation when we decided that we needed someone to design and install landscape lighting. In our opinion AAA Landscape Specialists are the best without a doubt! Also, of special note Victor was amazing. We were truly in awe of how proficient he was at his trade. If you need lighting or any other landscaping needs you owe it to yourself to give David a call.

Outstanding cost effective and professional David designed and tailored a solution to our landscaping needs. He listened and modified the design to fit our budget and was very good at listening and bringing creative suggestions and recommendations to the table. He and the team were clean and professional everyday. They continued working on my job until it was complete and they finished on schedule as committed. There were no negative suprises and we have received numerous compliments from friends and neighbors. We are thrilled with his work and would highly recommend AAA Landscaping for any job, large or small. He helped bring our vision to life and we have enjoyed our new patio, outdoor fireplace, raised bed garden and orchard area everyday. He even brought in all of the fruit trees and restored our the barbeque saving us lots of money, while making it look brand new. He directed us to his distributor (again saving us money) where we selected the perfect water fountains which really completed the ambience. Thanks David!

Top professionals, great people, excellent results David Silver and his team are top professionals in the landscaping field in my opinion. He was very honest about the process right from the beginning, and his team worked very hard to make sure the job was done with top quality throughout. I was home during much of the remodel, and I never saw anyone taking any shortcuts. My wife and I were particularly appreciative of the extra touches they added and/or suggested. My biggest concern before starting the project was that some yahoos would come in and start driving bobcats all over the yard and rip everything up. There were plants and trees and existing landscaping elements we wanted to save. I was very gratified with the care his team took while digging new trenches for gas and sprinkler lines. They almost never damaged anything that wasn't scheduled for replacement, and when they did I was notified and the repair was professionally made. Overall, the results are exactly what my wife and I wanted and the site looks very close to the vision generated by the design architect. We're thrilled. At the conclusion of the work last week we only had one small issue with a sprinkler which was fixed the next working day. I have no hesitation recommending David and his team. They were all great people to work with, honest, and courteous.

On Time, Fast, GREAT WORK! I had the Pleasure of working with the owner of AAA Landscape; David Silver and his team in the end of 2012 on a landscape design project for new home in the Historic District of Escondido. This area is known for its picturesque cottages, craftsman style homes and perfectly manicured yards. Truth be told, I was a little stressed out with trying to figure out how to get it all done and where I wanted the plants and layout.. But David and his crew came down and literally took all my worries away. They were on time, respectful and had great suggestions for my yard! By the time he left, I was smiling from ear to ear and so excited to begin! A few days later, they arrived to start the job, and it went by so quick I almost could not believe it! Before I knew it, I came home from work and I had a whole new yard! I can't describe that feeling! David's knowledge and professionalism, coupled with his "neighbor like" comforting personality, made this who process fly by, with zero stress! Now, I get to enjoy my new yard and all my neighbors drive by and compliment the work he did! I definitely recommend David and AAA Landscapes!

Fantastic Team! We had contacted AAA Landscape Specialists for assistance in building a water feature wall for an upcoming trade show. We had never built a water wall before and were hesitant in working out the logistics and functionality of the display. David was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about every little detail. He worked with us on planning out the most attractive and functional design. They built the wall, installed the water features and tested everything prior to our show. In addition, David traveled to our show to work with us onsite to ensure there were no problems or hiccups with the water feature wall. His design turned out to be a show stopper! The organic water features paired extremely well with our product, highlighting the display more as an environment rather than a cold stone wall. Traveling attendees made a point to stop by the booth for photo opportunities in front of the flowing backdrop. To add to the already successful energy of the show, our display was featured on IBS TV seen by thousands of viewers. Many thanks to David and his crew. Looking forward to many more beautiful projects with you and your team!

Great designs, good communication, excellent quality. Of the three landscapers we asked for quotes, David was the only one with a great design and a timely response. While not inexpensive, a great quality job for the money.

Great quality hard scape and planning flexibility. Have already referred and would refer again. David does a thorough job and stands behind his work. Very flexible and has a great quality finished product. David's team takes time to get it right and doesn't take short cuts other landscapers take. My experience was that if something is not right, his team will fix it without concern. We are pleased at the finished product and the thoroughness of the detail.

TOTALLY AWESOME! From the moment I met David Silver, I thought it was going to be a terrific experience. I drove him around looking at other designs and he immediately came up with an idea that I fell in love with. His employee's were professional, always on time, kept our entryway neat and clean and completed the job on time. We have had many neighbors compliment us on the way it has given our home "curb appeal" and we have even had drive-by's stop and ask who did the work. We are more than happy to give David and his company the highest of recommendations for a terrific job well done.

Highly recommended for all landscape needs David and his team not only did a tremendous job but were extremely supportive, flexible, accommodating and responsive in all efforts. The team created a beautiful patio for us, significant in size. The property posed a challenge in that the house sits very high on a hill and the driveway can be a significant challenge for construction vehicles. Their skill and teamwork allowed this not to be an issue. In addition, they made references for other vendors to assist us when we were in a bind and they were all excellent. No matter when we called with a concern or comment, we were responded to immediately. It was most impressive. We will now start with David for every landscape and related need we have. Thank you to David and the Team.

Beautiful Yard AAA Landscape kept every promise made at the onset of the project. The installers were the hardest workers I have ever seen and very helpful. David Silver really knows his trade and his advice was invaluable. I think the most satisfying element of this project was that AAA was on the job every day and finished exactly when they said they would. Pretty rare with other contractors we have used. We really feel like we got our money's worth on this project. We were always given a price range of components used for the project. So we knew we were getting top quality items.

Excellent Work on Two Projects - Landscape and Hardscape AAA Landscape Specialists did such a great job on our front yard project, we asked them back to do our back yard. On both projects, the results surpassed our expecations in terms of creative design and high quality execution. Relaxing under our new covered patio is like being at a resort. We absolutely love it.

Spa backyard If you've ever read the children's book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, or If You Give a Moose a Muffin - you can know how one thing leads to another and you wonder how it will all come together. We bought a Jacuzzi at the fair, then wondered what are we going to do with it. That started the process - Then I found AAA Landscaping. Dave and his team met with us, then presented us with a fantastic plan, taking our imagination and putting in on paper We were given a time line that was met, except for the changes I made that were accomdated! The attention to detail both foundationally and the finishing touches is unmatched. Now, our evenings center around what to grill, a short time in the jacuzzi and sitting in the rocking chairs beside the firepit. We even get to putt a couple $@!#% in our mini 3 hole putting green! And the front yard? Warm quartz stone lining the walkways and capping the walls, leading up to the front steps with a warm glow from the built in lighting. All of this was done w/ not a blade of grass to mow, capturing the natural landscaping of Southern California. with drought tolerant plant selection. We couldn't be more pleased with the outcome of our project.

Our backyard went from ugly to beautiful thanks to David and his team at AAA Landscape specialists AAA Landscape Specialists did a great job in helping us to turn our backyard into a place we want to be. From the first meeting, David and then Dan had great ideas for our backyard based on what we wanted. The entire crew that came and went over the time of contraction were polite and courteous. David and Victor were especially easy to work with and answered all our questions and would make any changes we wanted. Nothing was done without our approval. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend AAA Landscape Specialist.

Outstanding service and quality. Exceeded our expectations in every phase from planning through finished project. David Silver was great to work with. Very responsive, patient and understanding working with us to keep within our limited budget. Everyone in the company was competent and professional in every phase of the project: Dan's design; Victor's meticulous attention to detail; Phil's beautiful carpentry; concrete installation. We received excellent value for our investment. The final project transformed our uninviting backyard to a beautiful, restful oasis that adds great value to our home.

Amazing experience working with AAA Landscape Specialists!
From the start, AAA Landscape Specialists were professional, on-time, and were a dream to work with! Their initial drawings were beautiful, creative and helpful to visualize the end result. They were flexible with minor changes, their crew was on time every single day, they would tidy up as much as possible daily and my backyard renovation succeeded my expectations! I would hire them again in an instant and have recommended them already to many of my friends.

Great work They did an outstanding job installing my front lawn and irrigation system. It was a small project for them but they treated it like it was much bigger. Plus they cleared out the old dead grass, installed the new irrigation AND installed all the new sod in a day and half. Fast, efficient and professional. Great people to work with.

Elegant result, responsive process, reasonable cost.

Everything from design to materials selection to craftsmanship went very well. I was most pleased with David's responsiveness to suggestions along the way and the willingness of everybody to oblige and accommodate. Lovely result!

I am very happy with the job AAA did for me! The final results were great, everything and more than I expected. The workers were very professional and did everything in a timely fashion, no wasted time,and cleaned up all the mess and hauled off all the trash. I have synthetic grass and they did take great care to protect it during the process. I Can not say enough good things about the job they did.

High quality job completed in the promised time frame and cost. The owner David is an honest, quality and detail oriented person. It shows in his choice of employees and the quality control of his supervision. His crew actually matched my driveway coloring and texture. Something that I did not think could be accomplished. His crew also took the excess dirt from the concreted areas, put it in my yard and did not just leave it in piles they made sure it was spread out and tamped down. The job was completed on time and at a very reasonable price. I will be recomending AAA Landscape Specialists,and will defininitely use them in the future.

Very please with how the project turned out. David followed up our meeting with a written estimated, detailed out with all the work to be included. The crew was very polite, very neat, always cleaned up every day, didn't leave things lying around. They did an excellent job on the clean up of the overgrown landscape, it looked much better than I expected.

Proven Landscape Specialists We chose AAA Landscape Specialists to implement a draught tolerant smart landscape design for our front, side, and back yard. We are very satisfied with the result and anybody that visits our home marvels at the new look. The project required a multitude of landscape services and skills that AAA implemented in a friendly, professional and timely manner. We entered the project in the 2009 San Diego's Friendly Landscape Contest for the Santa Fe Irrigation District and won 2nd place for this water-wise design. We would recommend AAA Landscape Specialists to anyone seeking a professional landscape contractor.

Beautiful design finished on time. We hired David because we wanted a full service company committed to our tight deadline. Not only was the job done on time, the final project exceeded our expectations. You would never guess we had a problem slope and ugly brow ditch to deal with. Everyone who came to our barbecue the following week commented on how lovely the patio and yard looked. We were impressed with the craftsman-quality work on an existing retaining wall which came out looking new. Both David and his crew leader offered suggestions which enhanced the finished project. My neighbor who had work done by another company even commented on how quiet and organized the crew was.
Kate
Poway, CA
Great value, excellent job. We decided to use AAA Landscape Specialists because they seemed knowledgeable and had good ideas about what to do with our space. Their price also was competitive compared with other estimates we got. They did the landscaping for our yard, which included a pond and trees. The main thing we liked about working with them was their flexibility. They were willing to work with us on ideas we had that differed from what they originally proposed. We appreciated that they came to the table with ideas but were willing to deviate when we had other thoughts about what we wanted. Not all landscaping companies are as flexible as AAA. We would recommend them. They did what they said they would do and finished the project in a timely manner.

The best Landscape Company I don’t normally write reviews, but AAA was so great I felt that I had to do something to show my appreciation. This is one of the best companies I have ever dealt with and I’m going to recommend them to everyone that needs landscaping. They were extremely professional, patient, and helpful through our whole experience. Their customer service was extraordinary from David all the way through everyone that worked at our house. They were all incredibly polite and helpful every step of the way. If you want an honest estimate and authentic work, this is the company for you. They stuck to the budget and schedule from the estimate even when we made some changes to the original plan while they were working. After making our initial landscaping plans with David I had to deploy and leave my wife to deal with all the landscaping at our new construction house, which I was worried about, but as it turned out I didn’t need to be. Every step of the way they explained everything they were doing and fixed every problem, big and little, that came up. They even worked directly with our home builder to correct problems with the drainage pipes the builder had put in and helped us fix an approval issue with our HOA. Every time I talked to my wife back at home she told me how great AAA was, how helpful everyone was that was working at our home, and how good the yard looked. They made our yard look even better than I had hoped for and when they were done, they cleaned up everything and even painted our fence and touched up our stucco, leaving the house better than it was when they started. Even if another company gives you a lower estimate, pay the extra money because I guarantee you that it is worth it! David, if you read this, thank you so much and please thank the site supervisor too, he was unbelievable. I’m so glad we decided to use these honest, hardworking, professionals.

Fantastic to work with, great project from start to finish Just bought a house, wanted to update/restore the backyard. Bought a new hot tub, wanted to do the electrical and concrete slab - and I wanted everything done right the first time. We started with a walk through, detailing all the things I wanted to do (to my backyard). Mr Silver was helpful and polite, giving suggested solutions to problems I was pointing out. A 3-D model of the backyard was created, we experimented with a few changes, and sat down to brass taxes. After a week of exchanging emails about the 3-D design,we sat down with a finished vision. We went through the itemized list, cut a few ideas, changed some others - and signed the contract. A week later, on the start date, the team showed up and got to work - they arrive at 7 am every day of the week, leave at 3:30, and work right through the day. They are very aware that construction noise would not ingratiate me with my neighbors, and keep the noise down till about 9 am - no jackhammers till then! Honestly, aside from the machine noise, they are a very quiet group. The plant arrangement suggested was very attractive, but we wanted to change a few plants here and there (before they were ordered!)- absolutely not a problem, gave Mr Silver plenty of warning and we got exactly what we wanted. Before every major step, like concrete pouring, Mr Silver would walk the yard with us and make sure all the details were right - the concrete was in the right spots, the plant beds were the right size, etc. Before this project my backyard was a swampy mess. The additional drainage being added, something I hadn't considered but was suggest by Mr Silver, has REALLY improved the look and feel. At every step of the project, Mr Silver was available and helpful. The work is top notch, I won't have to change anything and the experience was great - I highly recommend this company! I see why they win so many awards!
