Another area by front steps was cleaned up and leveled and mulch added. Hector came ...

Outstanding! We would never consider using another landscaping company. Hector and his crew were reliable, responsive, attentive to the smallest detail and professional. Daily follow up to ensure we were completely satisfied as the project progressed and when it was completed was second to none. I would not want to be a competitor of Aerate1 because they could not have done any better. These guys ...

We have hired Hector and his crew to do sod for our front yard and to redo our pond - the work was done on time, professionally, and the areas were always cleaned up. Hector and his crew are talented and will work within your needs. Hector is a business man who truly cares about his customers and will offer professional advice but not force things on you. Good company to have work for you if you h...

Three guys jumped right into the clean-up and trim of surrounding plants. They work hard and this is a very dirty job. Pond looks like new and the yard was all clean-up when they were done.

Hector was very responsive to our needs. He met with us to show us some of his work and to understand what we wanted. He explained in detail what he would do and came out to the house during the work to ensure that everything was being done to our satisfaction. His team was timely and professional, and the job was completed as he described. Additionally, he came out after the pond work was complet...

Around seven years ago, Hector and his crew at Aerate 1 installed an Aquascape Rainwater Recycling Pondless Waterfall in my backyard. I was his first residential customer for this type of installation, although they'd done a couple commercial installations previously. It's set up to reuse the water runoff from my home's back gutter and sump pump discharge. I had no idea what to expect visually, but Hector had a vision. I'd seen landscaping jobs he'd done in my neighborhood, so I trusted him and let him have creative control. It was the best decision I've made! It is beautiful! The sound of running water, the ability to water my garden using an additional pump that pulls water from the underground reservoir, watching the birds' attraction to the water feature, the knowledge that I'm putting the discharged water from my sump pump to good use and very minimal upkeep involved--what's not to love? The crew comes out every spring to clean and restart the feature, then every fall they clean and shut it down for the winter months. They do a great job picking up after themselves when they're done. I've also had them clean my garden beds--spading the edges, removing the old mulch and putting down new, fresh mulch. They've always done a great job and are very polite. Hector himself comes out and checks every job personally. I highly recommend this company for any type of landscape or water feature! Hector also recently installed a flagstone walkway that goes from my driveway all the way to the patio in my backyard. I described what I wanted and left the rest to Hector and his crew. They not only gave me what I wanted, they made it even more beautiful.

Exactly as described. The workers left the area in an immaculate state after they finished. I am totally pleased. I had them back last month to get the pond ready for the new season.

Description of Work
I have had a pond for several years, but it had been installed in a rather shoddy and haphazard fashion. I contacted Aerate 1, and Hector arrived promptly at the agreed time and explained the problem thoroughly and what the reconstruction would entail. It was a bit more than I had hoped, but am I ever glad I did it! His crew was here for several days and did an outstanding work. My neighbors are most impressed and one of them is even thinking of having one in his backyard as well. There is nothing better than finding a competent, responsible contractor who excels what he has promised. Thanks, guys!
