We’ve had three neighbors view our awesome landscaping and they all had the same reaction: very nice, good choice of plants, rocks, etc. And I might add: good choice of landscaper! If you ever need a recommendation for any potential customers or wish them to see the wonderful work you did for us, don’t hesitate to send them over.

I highly recommend Jeff Smith Landscape Assistance. I found Jeff to be very accommodating and helpful when he did a complete overhaul of my aging irrigation system. The difference in the appearance of the landscape, along with the savings in my water bill, has been phenomenal.

David T.    Escondido   

Jeff and his team did a wonderful job. Everything looks great. We're really enjoying it all.

Carey T.    Hidden Meadows   

Thank you for the excellent work you did in our backyard. We are enjoying the new cement and patio roof every day. Please use my yard as a reference.

Elizabeth H.    Vista   

We get so many compliments on the walkway. It is lovely, and we and everyone who comes up the walk are enjoying it so much.

Jim T.    Hidden Meadows   

I am very impressed with the front yard landscape Jeff Smith Landscape Assistance just installed. It consists of an interlocking retainer wall, sidewalks, irrigation and drainage and plant material. Our yard went from a dirt patch to an oasis in a matter of two weeks. Jeff is responsive and knowledgeable and I will hire him again when I need any landscape work done.

Ron B.    San Marcos   

We met with your irrigation tech today and he was outstanding. He showed us where all the control units were and how to operate them. I was extremely pleased with his knowledge of our watering system and his willingness to show me how it works.

Don D.    Hidden Meadows   

I LOOOOOOOOVE our yard! THANK YOU for making our vision come to life!

Anika S.    High Country West, Rancho Bernardo   

Just a quick note to say a huge thank you to Jeff and your wonderful crew. The guys did a great job today, going above and beyond. They worked so hard, only breaking for lunch. Everything turned out better than I could ever have imagined. They cleaned up as they went and left my yard in spotless condition. I am sure I will call upon you again. Seems like I do something new each year. Again, a heartfelt thank you.

Sheryl K.    Escondido   

Thank you so much for a remarkable job! We absolutely love Jeff's design, and the execution went so smoothly. Jeff is great to work with because of his interpersonal skills - i.e. great, prompt service and attention, and great communication. We will recommend Landscape Assistance to friends and clients.

Dave L.    San Marcos   

Thanks! The backyard looks great!

Greg F.    4-S Ranch   

The lawn looks amazing. The entire backyard is spectacular. We really appreciate the quality work of Jeff and the crew.

Janet M.    Emerald Heights   

Wow, Jeff! The house looks amazing. We love it. Appreciate all the extra detail work, as well! Hopefully our neighbors will all see it and we'll be happy to recommend you to all our friends and family.

Nick M.    San Marcos   

Ron and I truly appreciate all you've done -- the workers do an excellent job and are really nice guys. You have always been very responsive to all of our questions or requests -- never underestimate how important that is. We've certainly appreciated it.

Gloria W.    San Marcos   

With the support from the weekly team, the yard looks amazing!

Paul F.    Escondido   

What a transformation! Never imagined the front would look so great. Jeff has amazing talent in his design.

Debbie B.    Hidden Meadows   

Jeff's company has done the landscape maintenance for my home for the past 10 years. Jeff is always responsive to problems that occasionally come up, and his employees are friendly and competent. His rates are reasonable and I like that he is insured and trustworthy.

Donna A.    Rancho Bernardo   

Jeff installed a water feature in our backyard and we love it! He listens and he creates what you want.

Phyllis M.    Escondido   

Anika and I spent an hour this evening enjoying and admiring the new backyard. It's absolutely amazing, and particularly special being today is my birthday. What a gift!!! We are so happy with how it turned out. Thank you so much, Jeff, Roxanne, and the crew for all your hard work and craftsmanship.

Lucian S.    High Country West, Rancho Bernardo   

Landscape Assistance installed a beautiful dining patio for me using concrete pavers placed in a radiating circle. It is gorgeous and everyone comments on it. I found Jeff and his crew to be prompt, professional and friendly. They went to extremes to create exactly what I had in mind for my yard. I recommend them highly.

Alice J.    Escondido   

We really appreciated the thought and effort behind the quality work that was performed by Jeff and his crew! You can always use us as a referral to the outstanding, on time, on budget work that Landscape Assistance delivers. Once we have a moment to regroup, I know we will be also asking Jeff to quote on some more work. Phase I completed with flying colors!

Paul R.    Bernardo Trails, Rancho Bernardo   

We had the City of San Diego post site inspection for our watersaver rebate this morning and all went well. We can expect that rebate check within 8 to 10 weeks. The inspector said this is one of the best looking projects he has seen!
