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 »

Jay and his team did a great job on replacing my lawn and plants. He provided a very detailed estimate up front and required no payment until job was completed. His foreman Larry was also great to work with. Highly recommended and great company to do business with.

We had three large sink holes in our backyard and needed new sod and landscaoing ideas. Jay and his group were amazing. Jay created a stone walkway and sitting area. He was very detailed; stayed in constant contact; kept job site clean; completed task timely. Amazing difference. We love it and already have visions (thanks to Jay) of a redo next year to our front yard

Had a fairly small sinkhole in our backyard. Service First sent the right people with the right equipment. They were determined to find the cause and kept at it until they did. Couldn't have asked for more, and the price was fair and competitive. Great work!

Jay came out to look at a sloped section of our yard to see if we need any landscaping or retaining walls to prevent erosion or structural issues. Instead of trying to sell us services we didnít need, he pointed out how last year was the wettest on record for our area and since we see no signs of erosion itís clear that what we have is fine and he doesnít want to sell us something we donít need. This type of integrity is why if we do need any future work, you can be sure Jay is the guy weíll call. I canít speak to the quality of his work, but I can only imagine it would be done with the same professional ethics.

Jay at Service First helped design a dry creek bed to alleviate the moisture build-up in our back yard, and it was exactly what we needed. The dry creek bed looks great and is easy to maintain. He also did some edging work around our house and re-solidified a retaining wall; again, both of which are easy for us to upkeep. Jay was patient throughout the process. All of this without charging and arm and a leg. He's at the top of our list for future landscape projects.

We recently had Service First Landscapes take care of, drainage issues, leveling and plantings in our yard. We had some trouble getting started due to the weather, but We were always kept up to date on the schedule. The crew that worked on our yard was great and their pride in a job well done was obvious. The neighbors have all said how much they liked the end results and were very impressed with the crew that did the work. While we had to wait on Mother Nature to get started the end results were worth the wait.

I guess the third time was the charm for us. We had two other Landscapers look at our project, but they showed a real lack of interest. We got the impression that our job was too small for them. Not the case with Service First. Jay did just what a good company does. Showed up on time and when he said he would, gave a complete and fair proposal, stayed in touch during the whole process, finished the job on time and did exactly what he promised that he and his crew would do. Our front yard looks even better than we thought it would. We highly recommend Service First.

Jay is a pleasure to work with. We received the most detailed, transparent proposal I have ever seen and we understood exactly the scope of work and the cost. Best of all is Jay's customer focus; if we had questions or wanted modifications once work started, he accommodated us. Jay clearly has an eye for landscaping and a deep knowledge of plants. They do great work, do what they say they are going to do, do so in a prompt and timely manner, and know that their success depends on the customers' satisfaction.

Jay and his team were terrific! He came out quickly and understood our needs and promptly gave us a very professional presentation with photos of each plant selected. The landscaping is beautiful and we couldn't have asked for more for exceptional service and competitive pricing. We will be using Jay again on a backyard hardscape project in the near future. Thanks again Jay!

Jay and his crew are fantastic to work with. They are hard working, customer service focused and very honest. I used Jay for a commercial landscape project and the end product completely changed the landscape of my property. He turned an old beat up property into a beautiful, well trimmed, colorful landscaped hotel. I plan on using him for my other hotel projects. Jay also invested a lot of time and energy in communicating with us which was pleasantly surprising. He was always checking up on the job prior to starting, during work and even after. It's hard to find companies like this.

Jay and his team exceeded every expectation. They were fast, courteous and the work is beautiful. We had both hard and softscape done and could not believe how affordable it was. We will be working with Jay again!

Jay came out to see us and immediately understood what we wanted to accomplish with the landscaping. He designed a solution quickly, efficiently and with careful plant selection. His team then executed the plan with great skill.
