We highly recommend Rivers Landscape for your residential landscape and structural construction needs. Gabriel did a great job working with us to develop our design using 3D modeling that helped us get a visual of our entire yard before beginning construction. He provided ample documentation to achieve HOA approval and permits. Gus was our site superintendent who was very courteous and his team was very respectful and professional with our family throughout the entire project. They worked closely with our pool contractor (Majestic) to coordinate their work. Our outdoor kitchen, cabana and dining room exceeded our expectations. Great quality workmanship on the carpentry, fireplace, retaining walls, plumbing, electrical, stone, stucco and concrete flatwork. They also installed a fire pit and beach volleyball court. They invited us to spend the day with them at the nursery to select each plant for the entire project. We have had a few warranty issues and they have been very responsive. This project earned the cover of an outdoor living magazine. We are thrilled with our new outdoor living space.

As a homeowner with a large lot, Rivers Landscape was fantastic. There entire landscape team of workers were well mannered, professional and very attentive to our needs. Rivers Landscape not only listened to our desire, but then collaborated with additional landscaping ideas and highlights to our yard. Most of all they were economical, timely and accommodating. As a family run business, they worked on our landscaping design and project as if it was for themselves. My entire family and I appreciated what they did for us and how they transformed our back yard into a year round "get away". I would highly recommend them to anyone in San Diego. Paul B.

Rivers Landscaping did an amazing job with our backyard pool remodel. Gabriel Rios worked closely with our pool contractor to come up with a design and a plan. Once they knew what we wanted, Gabriel showed us a 3-D computer drawing of our proposed project and we were immediately smitten. The colors, design, and progress were great. The Rivers team of workers were very considerate and hard working. Our entire project took about 6 months from start to finish. It was a big project. Once the pool contractor was at a point where Rivers could start, there were workers here 6 days a week from 7:00-5:00 or longer. Gabriel's designs were creative, modern and he has quite an eye for design. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because there wasn't a clear payment schedule in the contract. Ask for a tight, detailed, signed contract.

Rivers Landscaping transformed our entire concrete/grass backyard into a wonderful space including pool, gardens, outdoor kitchen, fire pit, artificial grass, gazebo, pavers, and landscaping. The entire project was completed on time and on budget. Owner Gabriel Rios was there every step of the way to manage the project and adjust as needed. All the employees were very knowledgeable and skilled and showed up every day to work. Orlando provided excellent day-to-day on-site management and was very receptive to changes during the project.

Rivers Landscape Construction created an extraordinary customer experience for our family. Gabriel (the company's President) was able to create a perfect 3D vision of our project before it commenced, and understood we had demanding requests and a strict budget. The team worked tirelessly to realize our dream. They created exquisite travertine walkways/entryways, a serene interior front courtyard, and an impressive outdoor patio. They installed a captivating limestone outdoor fireplace and a number of large stained-wood pergolas. They installed complete irrigation and impressive outdoor lighting throughout the property. They also built and installed all of our wood gates and planted over 20 very mature olive, podocarpus and citrus trees. The team's attention to detail was nothing-less than impressive. Rivers' was very dedicated to our project and the achievement of our vision, and I would strongly recommend their services to anyone.

We recently finished our front yard/home redesign project with Rivers Landscape Construction and are absolutely delighted with the finished project. The final project far exceeded our expectations. Our frontyard - rock/brick columns, rock facing on our home, brick courtyard, flagstone walkways and steps, and lighting and plantings came out beautiful. This project was a total transformation of the front exterior. We worked with Gabriel who designed the project (very insightful with ideas and able to project my ideas out in his designs) and made changes and updates as needed, very accommodating. All the workers were great, hardworking, and the supervisor very accommodating and professional. The project flowed very well and the work was completed on time (great coordination of materials). Our neighbors, family, and friends are amazed at the finished redesign, also some have stated it is "the most beautiful landscaping they have seen". We believe so also.

We purchased a newly constructed home and decided to choose Rivers Landscape to perform our landscaping. Gabriel with Rivers Landscape was referred to me by a few of my friends that had used them. Gabriel was very friendly and professional throughout our entire landscape project. I was extremely happy with the landscape process from start to finish with Rivers. Both Gabriel and the landscape crew were GREAT to work with! Rivers and his crew have the experience that I had hoped for on my project. The crew did a lot of items I wouldn't have thought of needing to be done. The extra details the Rivers crew did on their own made the project run smooth all the way to the end. Tony and Gus were great to work with throughout! A fun group to have around the house for a few months :) I would definitely recommend these guys to my friends!

Gabriel and his brothers did a great job on our project. They installed an outdoor kitchen, patio cover, two fire pits, a zero-scaped front yard, and best of all a wonderful waterfall. The work was high quality! We are very impressed with the results and have already recommended the company to others!

From the start of design to completion of the job Gabriel, Tony, and their team were awesome. The reason for four stars instead of five is that I have a hard time handing out perfect grades unless everything went perfectly. With that said, I would, and am going to, use Rivers for our next project. All in all, a great group of guys that do quality work, quickly.

My husband and I interviewed three companies before choosing Rivers to do our yard. We are so glad we did. They went over and above our expectations. We were impressed with the craftsmanship we observed in each detail of the job. It has been six months since they finished the job and we still go outside and brag on the wonderful job they did for us!

My pool contractor recommended Tony and his crew. Rivers not only did such an awesome job with the pavers for my pool, they built me my dream courtyard that I have been waiting on for 15 Years. Their workmanship and attention to detail was 1st class. Rivers over exceeded my expectations. Thank You!

Thanks to Gabriel, Tony and all the hard working employees at Rivers Landscape. They gave our small back yard a beautiful facelift. My fountain/fire structure is my favorite. The team worked hard all day, sometimes until 6 pm and were always respectful and cleaned up afterwards. I relied on their expertise to design the project, choose plants etc.. and was not disappointment. Also, when we had some follow up issues, they were always there to check things out.

After a bad experience with our first contractor, we needed to finish our BBQ island and fire pit. Gabriel came with some outstanding references from our friends. We were also able to see some of his previous work and were very impressed. Gabriel and his crew started on a Monday, and finished on time. He even corrected the mistakes of the previous contractor, requiring an innovative fix. If we need anything more done, he will be receiving a call from us. Thank you to Gabriel, Tony and the entire very professional crew.

Rivers Landcape transformed the backyard of our brand new home into a tropical paradise. Complete with a built in BBQ grill, bar, and refrigerator, awesome fireplace amazing waterfall, and beautiful plants. Gabriel and his team did quality work. Rivers is honest, reliable, flexible and easy to work with. After listening to what we had in mind, Gabriel designed our perfect backyard. He was open to ideas, and input from us. His crew of guys were great, and worked hard. They showed up each day, on time and put in a full days work. Gabriel stopped by on a regular bases to check on the progress, and was always available to take my phone calls. We highly recommend Rivers.
