I am an owner of some property I really love but can't live in because of where I work.I live in Santa Barbara so I'm only able to see my property at most once a month. I therefore really rely on my gardening and pool servicers to be proactive with issues and keep in contact.The initial clean up work I had done from Dave Suda and Tammy was good.I then had them continue on to maintain my property.This is where it became a real problem.I have some Korean grass that needs to be weeded of clovers which I even let Dave know I'd pay extra for per month to have it done.He never got back to me after I left numerous calls and even after he met with me on a Saturday and took notes regarding this issue. Now my grass is overrun with the clovers and I still can't get a hold of him.I'm going to have to pay extra money to bring in another service to help me weed the clovers. Also, they did work on my irrigation system but it is still not property functioning. I've been trying to get help on this as well but again can't reach them.I see that there are a number of positive reviews for Dave Suda and I would have been one of them if I didn't have such a terrible experience when it came to their maintenance work and their ability to call back regarding concerns. I think if you have a very simple landscaping, a robust lawn, you will like Dave Suda. If is gets more complex than this I wish you some luck

I recently had Dave and crew perform the following tasks on my backyard landscape: 1) add irrigation and ground cover to hill; 2) Remove and replace patio concrete with new stamped design concrete; 3) add drainage to fix flooding problems; 4) install raised wall planter; 5) add some new sod. They did an excellent job in all areas and completed right on time. Dave was extremely accessible to answer all my nagging questions at all times; thus, putting my mind at ease. This includes a one year warranty on all the new sod and ground cover. Any issues I had were quickly resolved. I would recommend Dave Suda Landscape for all your landscaping needs.

Dave Suda Landscaping delivered very fast, professional reliable care for my yard. Just bought a new home and needed some landscape ideas to fit my budget. They provided everything I needed quickly, kept it under my budget and also even suggested great kid friendly garden ideas, plants and a play area for my little ones. Dave and his team really puts his heart into his work. Really recommend them!

Dave Suda and his colleagues have been very professional, meticulous and accommodating in our complete front yard remodel. Starting with the project design and 3D computer mock-up of the property, throughout the construction phase and taking care of our requests at the end, the experience has been great. Dave and his team are very detail oriented and engaged with the customer throughout the project. We couldn't be happier with the end result and highly recommend this company. DSL may not be the cheapest in town, but you get what you pay for.

Dave met with us on Satuday to discuss the scope of the work and what WE envisioned. The plan they developed needed only minor revisions as they had listened and their plan incorporated the ideas we discussed. Low water needs, kid & pet friendly, low maintennce. Their quote was very compettive and included ranges on items dependent upon our selection of product and plantings. This was a complete landscape from new drains and irrigation to the final plantings. The end result is that we LOVE it and many neighbors and friends have told know how beautiful our corner lot is. They worked with the city to get approved permits/easements for our site. If you are looking for an honest team that puts their heart into the job, then contact Dave Suda. He's there to see that you're happy and the job is done right for a fair price.

Dave Suda Landscape & Design did an outstanding job in the landscape design at my residence at a reasonable cost. This included concrete patio, drainage, water feature, fire pit, and the landscape. When I came up with change requests, the cost was very reasonable. Management continues to carefully supervise the workers, even after I signed the contract. I would recommend this company to anybody that is considering landscaping.

Dave Suda Landscape & Design has been taking care of my front and back yard for almost two years now. I am military, currently stationed in Japan, and rented out my house in San Diego. The few times I have visited San Diego during this time, the yard looked great, and I have never had an invoice or billing problem. The renters are very happy with Dave Suda's service as well. Highly recommended!

Dave, I called your office for a landscape consultation on our front & rear landscape project and did not receive a callback for over 4wks. till you, Dave Suda, called apologizing for the lateness. Along with the apology you asked a few questions about our project and said one of your sales people would get back with us later in the day emphasizing the "same day"; no one called for over four days. I think the delays/lapses indicate a problem with your customer service which is why I have not returned your "salesperson's" call after my wife took the call. I am looking for a landscape company that will treat their customer & prospective customer business like it was their own project; promptly, precisely, and personally. If you cannot return an inquiry properly how can you consistently perform admirably? Gary Pavlovich

After taking a lot of shots in the dark, a friend reccomended DSL. They were responsive, friendly, and had no hidden fees! Definetly a company to trust!

I received lower bids, but Dave was so nice and really seemed to "get" what we were trying to do. He did an overhaul of a yard that had not been updated in 40+ years and did a great job! We're keeping him on for maintenance to ensure the nice work he did stays nice. In addition, he worked with me from afar to get it all done...I am 3,000 miles away from the job, but he made it easy to work with him.

Dave was great! Although unable to compete with an estimate I'd received, he made sure that I was making a solid decision. He gave me websites to check on the landscape company's credibility to insure that the outcome would be desired. He seemed to really care about us even though he would not profit from it. What a great guy!
