After reading the good reviews, I hired Botanica to repair and improve an existing irrigation system. The cost was around $2,000 for about 12 sprinkler heads and the entire job took about a month. Imagine our surprise when less than a year later we were told by Stuart that they didn't have time to perform follow up work on a system they didn't install. Once the big money is spent, don't expect them to return for smaller follow up jobs.

We did you no wrong and shame on you for trying to put a black mark on our record. Your irrigation system was not installed by us and we have no obligation to maintain it or provide ongoing repair service for you. It wasn't a matter of the job being too small. We are just no longer interested in repairing irrigation systems installed by other companies, or old systems that need to be entirely replaced, because it usually becomes more troublesome than it is worth, especially during the busy spring season. Case in point: When we serviced your system last year, we had to return three or four times -- for which we did not charge additionally -- because after we fixed one thing, another thing would go wrong. As I suggested to you during our phone conversation, a company that specializes in doing irrigation repair work would be of better service to you. Again, you have no valid reason for posting a complaint against us.
Botanica Atlanta did our lawn and patio installation. We were very happy with the results. Stuart was great to work with, and the team went above and beyond the scope of work - such as spreading pine straw to clean up our flower beds and transplanting some rose bushes at no extra cost. Not only did they finish on time, but also under budget, so our final bill was $600 less than anticipated, which is unheard of these days. Highly recommend!

Great experience working w/ Botanica Atlanta. Stuart did a great job listening to us and coming up with a beautiful plan that fit our goals and budget. Our boring backyard was transformed into something that we can be proud of aesthetically as well as being functional at the same time. Stuart was very accessible/flexible/and present throughout the entire process. Cameron was a great project leader and very responsive to our needs. They were both very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. Everything was done on time, according to plan, and within budget. Overall great experience which we plan to repeat with Botanica for our front yard next year!

Stuart and his crew, led by Cameron, did a great job building me a large pond and turning a partially depleted forest boundary area into a diverse, thriving habitat for local birds and butterflies. They are excellent listeners, not "salesy", and do a great job. I am going back for more work on the front yard later this year.

Botanica Atlanta turned our blank front yard into something worth looking at. And they stayed under budget and within the timeframe promised. They also were resourceful, suggesting suitable plants to replace those we planned to use but that were not available at the nurseries. They also came in UNDER budget. I should add that the process was well executed. Stuart listened to what we wanted and made good suggestions. After installation, Cameron conducted a walk-through, explaining how to take care of each plant and how to operate the irrigation system. He also fixed a few minor issues on the spot. We will use Botanica Atlanta again.

Our backyard had a spot where rainwater accumulated until Stuart had his crew dig and sod a swale that would direct the water into a new garden bed as well as down an existing boat ramp. After this weekend's heavy rains, his solution seems to be working fine. The new bed was amended and planted with an assortment of butterfly-attracting plants, so not only do I no longer have mud, I get to enjoy flowers and butterflies. And the newly sodded swale blends in beautifully, looking like it's always been there. This is the second time we've used Botanica Atlanta, and both times we've found Stuart to be patient, creative, hard-working, honest and fair. What else could you ask for?

Stuart did a great job working with us and our very steep yard. He came up with a beautiful plan that uses our entire yard and some solutions to make it easier to walk around the yard. The plants that went in last spring really beautify the back yard. We are doing the work in stages and Stuart has been readily available to help us along the way. We are looking forward to continuing to work with Stuart as we complete for phases of the plan.

We worked extensively with Stuart on our landscape plan. He put 110% into the job and came out with a fantastic design for us. It is beautiful and we love it! He spent much more time coming up with ideas for the overall plan then one would expect for the cost. Definitely recommend Botanica Atlanta if you need any landscape work.

I am very glad that I found Botanica Atlanta when I was searching for a landscaping contractor. Everything about my project was done professionally. Stuart came up with a beautiful design containing an interesting selection of plants and was very thorough and patient in working through the details with me to make sure that all of my family's needs and desires for the landscape were fulfilled. Phase one of the installation went smoothly and stayed on schedule. I'm looking forward to working with Botanica Atlanta again in the spring to complete the job in phase two. After being disappointed twice before, I finally found a landscaping company that has given me the beautiful garden I wanted at an affordable price. KB

Botanica Atlanta did a beautiful job in redesigning my back yard. I have had a lot of compliments on the sod that was installed. Stuart has been fantastic in following up to see if everything was satisfactory. Thank you Stuart.

Just finished a major outdoor project with Botanica Atlanta. The entire staff is knowledgeable, hard-working and creative. They helped us to create an outdoor living space utilizing hardscapes and landscapes that are truly wonderful now, and will be absolutely beautiful this Spring, Summer and Fall. The staff at Botanica Atlanta took my ideas, budget and time-frame and created what I believe to be a masterpiece in the making. These guys and gals know their stuff.

Our previously attractive yard had been severely compromised from the drought, but thanks to Troy Lashbrooks' gorgeous design, it is well on the way to something even more splendid. Troy is an artist! Botanica Atlanta has been refreshingly flexible with us during our level-4 drought in allowing for a gradual implementation of the work we've agreed on.

Botanica Atlanta delivered a quality, professional design and installation that exceeded our expectations. I would do business with Stuart again and would recommend him to family and friends for large landscape projects.
