We hired Dave after our previous gardener no-showed several times and when he did show up, we were not pleased with his services. Eventually, we fired him after several chances and hired Dave. Dave made an appointment and showed up on time. We told him what we were looking for and needed. We have a small garden in our back but it is full with native plants, roses, honeysuckle, hibiscus, an aloe tree and various succulents. When we hired Dave we thought the aloe tree was going to have to be replaced but he brought it back to life. Further, the garden is RADIANT and THRIVING. He is always on time, returns text messages, communicates extremely well and is very fair in his pricing. If he doesn't know something, he researches the issue and find out for you rather than telling me incorrect information. He just recently made us a beautiful raised redwood veggie garden and high enough for me due to my disability and it is GORGEOUS. I very rarely take the time to right such a good review on an individual for his services, but Dave is above and beyond. I recommend him highly.
