Terrific work, great experience, 7/02/2015

Hired this company to do a major landscaping job on our 1.7 acre property. Fixed driveway as well. Very high quality work done in a timely manner. Doesn't require any payments until the final... walkthrough. Jay and his staff are class acts - responsive, helpful, flexible and friendly. Everyone on his staff focused on pleasing the customer. While the work was being done, we asked for several major changes which were made without argument. I wish all service companies were as easy to work with and performed the level of quality work as Jay's company.

Another great experience, 6/18/2015

This is the second time I used Service First and I was totally satisfied. Jay designed a patio and fire pit area for me a couple of years ago and I knew he was the best candidate to lay new sod in... my backyard. David and his crew (who work with Jay) are the best! I highly recommend Service First.

Awesome experience!

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!

Great Experience from Start to Finish

Starting with the estimate, Jay confirmed our appointment, was on time, personable and listened to our ideas, unlike some other landscapers we had met with for quotes. Our yard has "poor access" for any type of equipment so we knew we might have some challenges. Jay was able to work through them, provide a quote shortly after meeting with us, and the best part is he provided alternatives in some areas of the yard for us to consider. These were even lesser expensive options, not an upsell. He also shared photos of similar projects so we knew what to expect. We wanted to transform an unusable slope of land into a patio where we could place some chairs and a fire pit, plus we needed new sod and irrigation installation. We knew our project wasn't going to be easy or cheap since it had to be dug out by hand due to the limited access. His crew was great, my neighbors who are home during the day, were impressed with their work ethic. It was also easy to get updates back and forth. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them or use them again for future projects. Class act, all the way around. Book quickly to get on their busy calendar! Our project was done quickly and looks amazing. We love our new patio/fire pit area! See photos for before and after.

Service First = great customer service

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.

Beautiful new retaining wall

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.

Back Yard Transformation

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.

Fantastic!

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!

Did an OK job

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.

Another great job

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.

Landscape in backyard

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.

We are delighted with the work Jay did for us!

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.

Amazing Job

Jay just finished landscaping my front yard and did a amazing job. Everything is low maintenance which is exactly what I wanted. After the work Jay did to the front I will have him come back and do the backyard next.

Wonderful Experience

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".
