“Steve Ashley and his team did a fantastic job at completely renovating our yard. From start to finish he was completely professional and brought a lot of knowledge to our site. We also had our pool renovated and his team did a great job as well. Steve remained on schedule as well as on budget. Him and his wife are a team where Cecilia assists in doing all of the landscaping and helping pick out plants. She was also great to work with. I would highly recommend them for any job large or small!!”

“Steve Ashley and his crew did a spectacular job on our back yard, it looks like a resort now. It was a very big project and we imposed a tight timelines. Despite Steve’s reluctance to take on the project and complete it in two months, he accepted the challenge and had his staff in the yard doing demo as soon as the ink from the contract was dry! The attention to detail reflects in every inch of the project; from the beautiful flagstone patio, magnificent fireplace with a bench seat, stunning built in kitchen with a full roof, fridge, sink, BBQ, and many more details. Everything is perfect! Steve and his crew worked tirelessly day in and day out! Towards the end of the project, Steve’s wife Cecelia, came over to work with the plants, trees, and shrubs; she helped us select the right plants that match the feel of a mediterian yard we were creating. I give Better Landscape 5 stars and would refer them to anyone.”

“We contracted with Better Landscape for our approximately 3000 square foot backyard. It was a new home with a totally empty backyard. We came up with a general design that included an 800 square foot travertine patio, two grass areas, 3 built in benches, a massive, multi-level fountain, a fire pit, and a dining area, a veggie garden, and raised seat walls all around the yard. Cecilia drew out the plan with more specific measurements and the crew turned an expanse of dirt into a beautiful, resort-like backyard that is as beautiful as it is functional. It has added exceptional value to our home.”

“My wife and I had been thinking of doing our front yard landscaping for a few years and with 3 neighbors doing projects this summer we decided now was the time. I called these vendors, but they never called us back. I then went on yelp and fortunately found Better Landscaping.
Cecilia met with us and did the complete design without any up front costs which I found unlike any other contractors. Her experience and recommendations really helped us with our final decisions.
Steve and his crew did an outstanding job start to finish. His crew was extremely professional, courteous to us and our neighbors and did a great job at the end of each day cleaning up and organizing for the next day. They kept on schedule even with our last minute changes and I would not have asked for anything better from both of them. We had a budget and they did a fantastic job keeping to our budget while really giving us our dream project that all of our neighbors compliment us on. We look out our windows and watch the neighbors stop and stare and when we are outside, they always say how beautiful it looks.
I have and will continue to refer and recommend Steve and Cecilia to all my friend and family. Great company that did an outstanding job for us!!!”

Steve and his crew have done a great job with our weekly yard service. I switched to him after seeing the beautiful work he did on a full yard landscaping installation job including a pool at my friends home. I was frustrated with our previous yard service as they took forever to respond to me. Steve gets back to me right away and is very helpful. His crew troubleshot some non functioning irrigation and did a large installation of sand/DG/mulch quickly and efficiently. It is really hard to find a great landscaping company but he is it.

We bought our house a few years ago and have not been able to do a thing with the yard since. We closed our curtains and called it a day. The weeds were so tall and the amount of work was too overwhelming for us as new home owners.
We had recently saved up enough to finally get started on our backyard and after doing a lot of research we had better landscape do the job.
In just 10 days of hard work, they turned our useless “meadow” into a beautiful backyard just awaiting our personal final touches.
We are beyond happy with our yard and finally feel like we can actually enjoy it!
Thank you to better landscape and their amazing, kind, respectful and helpful crew!

We had an amazing experience with Steve and his crew. I can’t say enough positive things in this review to do them justice. Steve went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with the end result (which I definitely am). And his crew….phenomenal. They were always on time, kind, professional and just an overall pleasure. Truly, from the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you all for the hard work and our beautiful new backyard!
