Daniel and his team are by far the best gardeners in the valley. I have been through 6 gardeners in two years and DC Gardening Service is far superior in quality, price and professionalism. For example: Most gardeners do not communicate with the property owner after the service starts. Daniel is proactive, always returns calls right away and schedules follow-up visits promptly. Most gardeners just do what they want, regardless of your instructions. Daniel and his team listen to your concerns and directions and pay close attention. They tell you exactly what they will do, reconcile that with your preferences, and execute exactly as promised. Most gardners just cut, cut, cut. They "mow and blow" the lawn (often cutting too low) and butcher the plants and trees. Daniel and his team are much more precise, gentle and aesthetically oriented. Most gardeners just jury-rig sprinkler systems with no real attention to adequate coverage or water conservation. Daniel and his team work against a detailed plan with an eye towards maximizing the irrigation while minimizing run-off and wasted water. I have become an expert in the do's and don'ts of hiring gardeners and I would strongly recommend DC Gardening Service.
