Jay was responsive until the end of the project. While I see here that other people’s jobs were being done promptly and with quality during the timeframe of our project, we clearly were at the bottom of the priority list. Unfortunately, this may be because we ended up paying for the job of 100% in advance when we were approached by Jay saying that he needed more money to purchase materials for our project. Lesson learned. Work progressed very slowly, and not on the days promised. The bobcat sat in the front yard for at least three days. The project was dragged out over almost 2 weeks. Workers did not come when promised. Stone was laid in a very haphazard fashion without clear demarcation lines, not a professional polished look like on the website pictures at all. We brought this to Jay’s attention. He apologized and said he had a new worker and would come to the property to fix things. We tried a couple different times to meet him there but it was not convenient for him. We Finally agreed to a phone discussion and text messages with photos of desired corrections. Jay did come out but things were not executed fully as discussed. After this we received a notice from the city that our water meter was buried under rock. We also discovered that the weed block as Quoted in the invoice was NOT applied under the gravel and we have uncontrollable weeds coming up through the gravel driveway within two weeks of the job. Jay was contacted about these two issues. He says we asked for a discount and that’s why there’s no weed block. However we were never informed, nor would we have agreed to a gravel driveway without weed block. It is clearly listed on the invoice. He initially said they would come uncover the water meter. He then responded that he had talked to his worker and that they never saw the water meter so it must’ve already been buried. He then indicated that he was done “ going back-and-forth about this.” The city has been reading the water meter for over a decade and never sent a notice before so it is clearly related to the work done. After purchasing a metal detector, we located the water meter and then spent two hours digging it out from where it had been buried during the excavation of the front yard. I am absolutely shocked that this could happen with an experienced company that is so highly rated. We have spent 2 hours digging and we still have not gotten all the dirt out of the water meter box, we have barely uncovered the shut off valve. This is just so unacceptable. The excavation work appears to be satisfactory other than the water meter being buried. The lack of weed block creates an ongoing issue with what was designed to be a low maintenance solution to enhance parking and improve curb appeal. The center design feature is a total flop and now has to be completely re-configurated because of the water meter being in the middle of it. Most of the plants were installed in the wrong area or improperly in a crooked line and too close to the house. We are working our way through re-planting all the plants. We are still trying to figure out the demarcation lines between the stones. We had Bricks we had wanted to use as a border But Jay said they could not be used and offered to throw them out for us. When I asked for them back He offered some brick he had on hand but never provided it. We also did not receive the size plants promised or type for center island and we were shorted 2 plants in the center island. A lot of excavation work was done at the property. A lot of product was brought there as well, limestone and granite. We hope we got our $6000 worth but as far as the finished product it is far below expectation and Is not appealing at all. We paid for a professional polished product much like the ones you will see on Jay’s website. What we ended up with couldn’t be further from that, even after sending him pictures from his own website and telling him this was the quality we expected. The end result is beyond disappointing. I’m surprised to see many other people having a positive experience with this company and happy with their results. This confuses me about our experience. All these great reviews are part of the reason I chose this company and most of our interactions with Jay were very positive until we started expressing dissatisfaction with some elements of the job. I recommended this company to my friend based on reviews and photos here and from Jay’s website, and the fact that he was vetted by Angie’s list. I feel badly for recommending him to my friend and feel responsible for the terrible result. I did note 2 other Complaints against Jay’s company in the Better Business Bureau so we are not having an isolated experience. I guess Jay can be very good but his company’s performance is inconsistent.

We asked Michael to design and install landscaping for our new build house. When he first came to the property, he immediately made some _valuable_ suggestions for home's exterior completely unrelated to the landscaping. He also suggested a gravel bed around the house to replace gutters, which has worked wonderfully to prevent rain erosion on our sloped lot. His landscaping design was beautiful and appropriate to the house and has not only survived, but flourished. I recommend him higly.

Watch out for this guy. He talks a good game. He will cut corners leaving an unsightly area and then argue that he did everything right. In addition if you challenge him he will try to bully you. His guarantee is worthless - just words - just paper. A horrible example of customer service. Dakota came out and sized up the job and quoted a price. The job was to establish a gravel area at the side of the house, fill in some large void areas that seawall construction left with dirt to level the ground so and then sod the complete yard. In order to establish the new gravel area he needed to move some gravel from the back side of the house. While moving the old gravel area he poured gravel into the void areas rather that the dirt fill he charged me for. Big concern is that the void fill with gravel will not provide a solid base for the lawn to root properly. When the job was done the new gravel area was too sparse of gravel that dirt showed through. When I challenge him he said that there was not enough gravel to properly cover the new area. Had he not used the old gravel to fill in the voids he may have had enough. Regardless since he bid the job he should have brought in more gravel to complete the job. When I called him he talked rather than listen and tried to bully me. I guess he does not understand what customer service means. You will make a big mistake hiring him.

Bob and his assistant did a great job. The stone looks great in the driveway and the job was done very quickly and cleanly. They were on time and Bob called ahead to let me know they on their way. The cost was very reasonable. I would definitely hire again for other projects. You couldn't ask for better service!

Jay and his team did an excellent job on time and made everything look great! The before and after result was dramatic! I fully expect neighbors to notice and ask for Cultiv8’s information so they can have an equally beautiful and cost saving result!

It went very well! Jay kept in touch, letting us know when he and his crew would arrive, and good communication is so important to us. And then they did a great job removing gravel from an area that will become a flower bed for pollinators. Thanks, guy!!

MSC is an outstanding company, and I will use them again. I like that the owner of the company is on the ground getting his hands dirty on each job, and not just out selling new work. He started my job a few days early, and made time to stay well after dark to finish the work. Yes, we had lights, and he did an excellent job.

Not well. Wrong product dumped in driveway Friday 12/29/18. On 1/3/19, following the long holiday weekend, was promised the wrong gravel would be removed "this afternoon" and correct gravel delivered "tomorrow" (1/4). Did not happen. On the contrary, rec'd promises/ excuses/misinformation almost daily, sometimes by the hour, over the next 15 days. Then, with no notice whatseover, a truck began dumping correct gravel right where our car normally parks, wrong material still piled nearby, we screaming "STOP!" More than half of driveway was by then taken up by two completely different gravel piles. Normal life was affected two more weeks trying to comply with projected removal and delivery times, 99% of which failed. Issue was *finally* resolved--wrong material removed, correct delivered/dumped in proper location--on 1/19/2019. Would never do business with this company again.

Recent Review: Great customer service. My driveway was full of pot holes and rough. He came out and left my driveway nice and smooth with no holes. Also they cleaned out a ditch that runs infront of my property with a skid steer.

Recent Review: Fernando is amazing! He knew exactly what I wanted. He is quick to respond to questions. He gave me a start date and his crew showed up on time and worked all day. Fernando and his crew went out of their way to not only do a fantastic job, but went above and beyond. If you are looking for a creative and reasonable landscaping company - I highly recommend Safefer Landscaping !!! You will not be disappointed.

Recent Review: Ricky Benito, the owner, was very responsive to our needs. We battled with extreme soil erosion from a leaky county sewer drain and broken irrigation lines. The damage was very extensive and over whelming. Our driveway pavers collapsed into sink holes as well as the entire front lawn. Once the leaking was finally repaired. Ricky personally reviewed our mess. He put us at ease with his professionalism and knowledge of the required repairs. He immediately addressed our paver and lawn and quickly completed it. His pricing was extremely reasonable. Looks great!! Thank You.

Recent Review: It took a long time (almost six months) to obtain the materials (tiles, pavers, etc.) -- this is was mostly out of the hands of GPS Pools and due largely to global supply chain issues. Once received, the craftsmanship and skill that went into the tiling, pool resurfacing, and deck pavers was excellent. I got quotes from other providers, and GPS offered a fair and competitive price as well.

Recent Review: We were on a short turn schedule due to another contractor falling out and spoke to the owner Scott Seddon. He was extremely responsive to our request and gave us multiple options to complete within a two-three day time frame. He mentioned the high and low price proposal and explained he would not know until he was able to survey. We thought that would mean we would be paying the high price. We were extremely pleasantly surprised. His men were out exactly on time and with the proper equipment. They also brought out extra gear just in case. They surveyed the job and made several great recommendations. They completed the trail perfectly and also made sure to spread the excess dirt evenly. They walked the entire ground with us and made sure we were happy with every aspect of the job. The best part was they charged us the very lowest quote they had provided us. Very Professional and would use them again in a second.

Recent Review: Richard arrived on time with all the necessary materials and personnel. The site was cleared and debris removed in a timely manner and without disruption to the neighborhood. All plant materials were healthy and have survived the heat and weather in Florida since installation. He made numerous adjustment to our sprinkler system so that all landscape is on a timer and safely watered. Richard and staff were friendly and professional. They were able to complete the job in the allotted time and we are very pleased with the experience.

Recent Review: Called Lee for an estimate to remove decorative wall from open patio. He arrived the next day on time at 11am with his co-worker Mike. Lee confirmed the quote I had been given over the phone and immediately started working. They removed the wall and cleaned everything up. I then asked for a quote on the Oleanders and garden project. I was given a very reasonable price so they began work on those projects. Lee and Mike did a great job trimming the wild Oleanders into manicured hedges, and cleaning out the garden and flower beds. They installed new mulch, and cleaned up the area very well. Lee and Mike are both very polite hard workers. They began work at 11am Thursday and finished the projects at 5pm Friday

Recent Review: They were extremely friendly and helpful as I was a bit picky about the size stones that I wanted and had to pick through the pile. And, they were careful with the loading of the stones on the trailer I rented from Home Depot to pick up the stones myself. I'll definitely go there for any of my stone, rock or gravel needs in the future. And, great price for the quantity and size stones I got.

Recent Review: We are looking to do quite a bit of alterations to our landscaping. Our contractor gave us ideas and brought over stone samples but we wanted to see a bigger selection. We stopped at a couple of places that just didn't win us over. We got to Big Earth 30 minutes before they closed for the day and were actually greeted by one of the employees as we were getting out of the car. He had been obviously working in the yard and took the time to see if he could help us. What a shock. That type of service is only a thing of the past. For a deeper explanation and assistance, he introduced us to the manager, Matt. Matt explained in greater detail the pros and cons of different types of stone and the costs associated with each and then walked the yard with us in case we had additional questions. Because the shop was closing in 30 minutes when we arrived, I was concerned that we would be rushed. At NO time did that happen. Another big surprise and thing that only happened in the past. Once we nail down the work to be done, we would be foolish not to use Big Earth.

Recent Review: They did a fantastic job! Even corrected some bad areas of the paved driveway we just had installed (which prompted our re-Curb-It job). They did a nice, clean job. Did everything they said they would, and more! All done and stayed within the original estimate. Will have them do the work for our next home! The curb is very nicely done, the best in the Sarasota area, we believe. They do a great, high-quality job, and don't leave any mess behind. We HIGHLY recommend this company.
