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!
Full front and back yard remodel including removal of old concrete and brick.

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.

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. After a week of exchanging emails about the 3-D design,we sat down with a finished vision. 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. I should also mention the lighting. We have AMAZING yard lightning now - really, just worth every penny. The wiring is great, there is plenty of extra corde buried to allow me to move the lights later.

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 took care of everything. They 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 of 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 space that for so many years went unused. We are already looking for ways of using them again.

After interviewing 6 different contractors we came the decision to choose AAA Landscape Specialists, Inc. based on previous workmanship, personal visits to job sites and speaking with their previous clients. The true experience is better than what we expected even though our expectations were very high. The principal of the business David Silver has high ethics and integrity. The job consisted of a complete re-design of our backyard and the renovation of our swimming pool, fireplace, and patios and new installation of a custom water feature, fire pit, retaining walls, extensive planting, irrigation, drainage, flagstone and slate installation, new arbors and patio covers and outdoor lighting. We highly recommend this company for any size landscape project and will be happy to be contacted by prospective clients. Steve and Marcy Hong Fairbanks Highlands San Diego, CA

David and his team did a wonderful job upgrading our backyard. The work was completed on time, the quality exceeded our expectations, and there was minimal disruption to our daily routine. He listened to us during the design phase, personally assisted us with the selection of materials, and responded to any concerns that we had during and after the project. We were especially happy that even though we were not his only project, there was always someone from his team working at our house. We also appreciated the effort they put in during the cleanup phase. It was above and beyond what we had experienced with other contractors. We definitely would recommend AAA Landscaping and look forward to using them again on future projects. Thank you.

David and his crew were amazingly professional, affordable, and easy to work with. He treated us as if we were his only customers and frequently kept in touch with us if there were problems or questions. My husband and I will hire them again when we redo the back yard.

AAA Landscape Specialists Inc. was the right choice for my landscaping "do-over." I wanted a company that was reliable, conscientious, innovative, and willing to accept my input (on a daily basis). I wanted the flexibility to enhance or modify the plan as we went. I had many large specimen plants that I wanted to retain and incorporate in the plan, as well as save other plants for relocation. I feel confident that I chose the right company as all these needs were met, and in a timely fashion. Thank you, David, for providing a company that is professional and a pleasure to work with. Your work ethic and the excellent staff such as Victor and Marcellino made for a pleasant experience with a craftsmanship and attention to detail that is unsurpassed. I am very happy with the results, and I love walking out the front door each day to see my beautiful yard. I am glad I chose your company and would recommend you to anyone seeking a beautiful, well executed, and professional landscaping project. Thanks again, Dorothy and Greg Sloan Escondido

David, We wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the design, workmanship and finished product you and your staff provided to our Soledad Mountain Road home. On the first day that we met you, and you immediately thought of a unique and unusual design for our driveway, walk and entryway into our home, we were very impressed. We would never have dreamed of it being so different and appealing for a home like ours. Being on Soledad Mountain Road, we have many walkers and bikers that come by, then stop to look and marvel at our driveway. We have had many neighbors ask who did the work and asked for your company name, address and phone number. One day, we even saw 2 cars driving by that turned around, came back and parked in front, just to get out and look at the drive. It has to be one of a kind and we hope it stays that way. Just kidding. We sincerely want to THANK YOU and your artistic workmen for a job very well done. Now we need to think about our next project of flagstoning our patio and we will definitely be contacting you in the future when we are ready for it. Wishing you and your family a wonderful Holiday Season and thank you again. Sincerely, Max B. Jennings, La Jolla, CA.

I had wanted "curb appeal" for my modest house in Carlsbad, CA since I moved in 8+ years ago. However, with all the work needed on the inside and garden it took me a while to get some money together. I was lucky when Dave picked up the phone at Landscape Specialists. He seemed to "get" me right away. After I checked out his beautiful work and awards on his website I invited him over. He wasn't daunted by my modest budget and gave me three professional plans with expansion into the future. Dave's design looks really fabulous! It exceeded all our expectations!! I don't know how I got so lucky; my hardscape is the envy of the neighborhood! It looks just like me... traditional, clean, and tailored. It's a pleasure to see every time we come or go. We really love it! It wasn't inexpensive, but I wanted something first-class and built to last. Dave's team of experts completed the work ahead of time and they were fun to have around. They cleaned up the site every evening and never needed anything from me. I highly recommend Landscape Specialists to everyone. Warm regards, Brooks Gunn

I would like to let you know how excited my wife and I are with the re-landscape job at our home. Your entire group continually impressed us with their craftsmanship. Having had work completed on our home by numerous contractors over the years a few highlights have made your company standout. Most noteworthy is that your team was always at our home, ready to work, at the time they were supposed to be there. Never did I have to inquire if anyone was ever going to show up again to complete the job. Second, the construction and finishing work was outstanding. This has been the only time we have ever had flagstone laid where the edges were smoothed to create an exceptional visual appearance. That is how a project is supposed to be run and is a testament to Victor and David making it all come together. Aaron

with AAA Landscape Specialists. David Silver and his team were very professional throughout ever step of the process. Even when we wanted to make changes to the original plans, they were flexible and cooperative. We had a great deal of stonework done, a beautiful custom fireplace, a Spool, hardscape, and softscape. Great attention was given to every little detail. We love our backyard, its perfect for entertaining. Whether we're relaxing in the Spool, sitting by the fire, or BBQing with friends, its perfect for every occasion. And there's still plenty of room for the kids to play! Thanks Landscape Specialists for helping to make our yard a place to enjoy for years to come.

You should get a landscape award for this project. We are very satisfied with the results and anybody that visits our home marvels at the new look. The crew teamwork was remarkable. The job scheduling of subcontractors and material suppliers was always just-in-time. This is a tribute to you David, Victor, and Raphael for managing this project in a most efficient manner without my involvement. We were especially impressed with Marcellino's craftsman expertise and dedication to detail; he is a stone artist. This is a testament to AAA Landscape Specialists friendly dedicated professional approach to completing a landscape project on time and to the customer's satisfaction. You were always receptive to minor adjustments in the implementation process to suit our needs. This project required a multitude of landscape services and skills which included the following: An integrated landscape design and layout plan, major demolition, drainage and irrigation installation including a fountain, retaining wall build, low-level lighting, patio carpentry work and redwood fence installation, concrete pouring and finishing, quartzite stone installation on patio and entry way, stone veneer on pillars, plant installation, artificial turf and putting green installation. Sincerely, Roger & Paula Koch

David, We just want you to know how pleased we are with the new landscaping. It was an extensive project for us and we appreciated your handholding through the process. Your "vision" for the front yard has enabled us to get just the "look" we were looking for. We could not be happier with the finished product and could not have imagined it turning out so well. We appreciated your accommodating our rushed schedule to get everything completed before Halloween. Your crew was very congenial, did a great job putting everything together and completing the job. I passed your name along to our neighbors who are thinking about doing an outdoor project. We would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone. Chuck and Irene Crall
