We used California SmartScape for both the design of our project, partnering with our HOA/Landscape Architectural review committee and for the construction of the project. In every aspect of the engagement, this team was professional, responsive, high quality and on top of things.
Jesse York was our landscape designer. We LOVED Jesse's eye for detail and thoroughness. He has has a lot of experience in projects around our home so he know what the fire department and HOA asks would be. That made our task much easier. Jesse is also very amenable to feedback and partners amazingly well with homeowners. He really listened to our asks and ensured he incorporated everything on our wishlist and in a manner that fit our budget and wishlist. Jesse worked with us every step of the way and really ensured that we were comfortable spending the $$ allocated and directed our money spend in the best value for the buck. LOVED working with Jesse!
Leo was the project manager on the construction end. Leo is an ALL Star across the board. He is extremely personable, is very familiar with the project, ensures the project proceeds at a great pace, is a strong partner on changes if any, gives great advice on where to spend $$ and is very familiar with construction codes, needs of his team, aligns every step in the most efficient way possible. In our case, we'd picked another company to do our pool construction and Leo partnered with the pool project manager to ensure communication channels were clear and handoffs were smooth. Leo was such a DREAM to work with.
Overall, this was the largest scale project we have taken on and California SmartScape made it easy for us every step of the way. LOVE the work and the end results, love the people who worked on the project, ALL STARS all the way!
