Jay and his crew helped renovate our front yard. We removed all of the dead and dated bushes and replanted a more modern look with a combination of plants and flowers. He also installed two stone... retaining walls and put down a few pallets of new sod. He came to the house and walked thru all of our concerns and ideas. He offered his our opinions and for certain things a cheaper alternative. Once we agreed on the work he took the time to go over everything we were doing and did a final walk thru before the crew got there. David was the foreman on the crew and was great to work with. The work was finished in a week and then Jay went over post renovation care. His communication was great on both email and phone. Will definitely use again on our next project.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
I'm writing a review from the perspective of long-term satisfaction with Service First's work. Many people can put in a retaining wall and other hardscaping but will that wall still be up years... later? Will the area flood with heavy rains etc. etc.? Three years ago Jay & his crew did a major makeover of our back yard including grading, excavations, stone retaining wall, flagstone patio, stone pathway and other hardscaping. 3 years later it still looks & performs great! No shifting in the rock work even with the wide range of temperatures we've had in GA the last few years. No unusual pooling of water or drainage problems. We started with a good planning session with Jay and the project came out even better than we'd envisioned. We have used him for smaller projects since then and are getting ready to get him to do another one -- prep a hot tub area & expand the flagstone patio size. Jay is always on time, on schedule & on budget.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

We got 3 quotes. Design wise they all had similar ideas. Service first was not only was the lowest price in general, but also saved us money by telling us we only needed SOME new sod, not the entire yard like the other two companies. The workers worked hard and were very respectful. Jay even had them come by to hand water the new plants the next day because I was out of town. We are fixing our yard piece by piece and will definitely use them for the other areas in the future.

Jay and his team did an amazing job removing our old ugly railway tie wall that was falling apart. They professionally removed it and disposed of it, and then replaced it and expanded a beautiful tiered wall that extended past and up the side of our house. They also installed a series of Tennessee field stone steps that came down parallel along the side of the wall leading to our back yard. All work was completed in exactly 3 days as promised, and the cleanup afterwards was exceptional. That is often an overlooked part of a job, but to me it was really important that they left my property as clean or cleaner that it was when they arrived. I have already had several of my neighbors stop by to compliment the work and how nice it looks. I will absolutely consider them again for a backyard patio project we have planned for next near.

Service First Landscapes has just finished turning our tired backyard into a beautiful outdoor living space.Jay and his team removed all of our old shrubs, leveled our backyard, installed new shrubs and a flagstone patio and fire pit. A new irrigation system was installed into the backyard as well. This was phase one of our planned project to re-landscape our yard. Phase two we plan to re-landscape the front yard with Jay's input and advice. We are very please with the results of Service First Landscape's work. Thank you Jay.

We are so pleased to have chosen Service First for our landscape project. Jay gave us vision from day one. He and his team delivered an outstanding product and turned a seemingly useless backyard into something great. We now have a beautiful stone patio and walls to enjoy, entertain and relax. That coupled with great plant knowledge and layout will have us going back to Service First for our next project. Thanks and great job Jay!

I had them plant some trees/plants last year in early spring for my front yard. For the most the plants survived except 2 evergreen trees out of 3. One of them was planted a second time because the first one died within the first month of planting. The second time it was planted in the same spot, it died again and I believe it was the way it was planted. The tree is a little tilted and I know it's not a watering issue because all three trees get water equally. I don't think Jay's workers did a good job and that's why some of them died. I would not use them again.

Jay and his team delivered another stunning landscape project. We used Service First for a backyard project 2 years ago and decided to use them again for our front yard based on how great a job they did the first time. The project just completed and my wife and I are very excited how it turned out. They truly exceeded our expectations. The quality of the work is top notch and pricing is more than fair. One thing I really liked was they provided us options to help us determine what fit our budget. All in all, we highly recommend.

I contacted Services First when I was looking to address landscape and drainage issues that left my backyard barren. Jay reviewed the problem with me and returned with a detailed design to address it to which I agreed to proceed. The crew did a nice job and, after a few months, it still looks great. I held off writing this review as previous attempts to correct the drainage problem had been unsuccessful. Definitely recommend Jay and his team.

This is the second time we have used Jay's Service First company this year. Earlier in the year he repaired a large drain at the end of our driveway, rebuilt the retaining hill and planted new landscaping. It held up to the spring and summer rains and solved our drainage and erosion problems. We were very pleased with his work. So when it came time to deal with our front yard, we called Jay again. This time he redesigned our front landscaping, and his team pulled out all of the 11-year-old shrubs that died in the late spring freeze. They were also able to preserve some of the shrubs we wanted to keep and re-plant them in better locations. Jay was responsive to our phone calls and emails, always punctual and professional, as were his employees. Jay's bid wasn't the cheapest of our estimates, but he was competitive. We have recommended Jay to friends, and would use his services again in the future.

We were 100% pleased with the entire process redoing our front yard with Jay. He was fair, honest, and dependable. The work was completed exactly as promised and on time, and we would definitely recommend him. Will be using him for any future landscaping needs!

Jay and his team did a wonderful job on a recent landscaping job on our house. He initially came out and provided us an estimate for everything that we wanted to do (pie in the sky!) and then did a great job of scaling it back to fit within our budget without compromising any details. He communicated to us throughout the entire project and was at our home during all key phases of the project. His foreman on our project (Edmundo I believe) was also very professional and did a fabulous job! I would definitely recommend Jay and Service First for any landscaping project and we will likely use him again to finish our "wish list".

Jay was a great to work with. Along with his ideas, Jay listened to my thoughts too and, together we came up with a really wonderful yard. He was very easy to communicate with and was extremely easy to contact. Always quick to respond.

Jay did an awesome job designing a beautiful low maintenance landscape for our front yard. His rates were reasonable and his team did a great job in one day - super service! This is the second project that Jay has done for us and we'll definitely use him again on our next one.

Jay created a great design and David and his team did an expert job of installing the new steps and shrubs. Jay made sure there was a variation of colors and leaf texture to make the yard look great. It looks better than I ever imagined.
