06/23/2013Abescape Landscaping & Irrigation
I hired abe because of the good reviews, and they did do good quality work, but I can't in good conscience recommend them because their work ethic and billing practices disappointed me. I had a lot of work for them and even supplied them with a computer generated picture of what I wanted. A fountain was always part of the project, and in fact abraham said he would shop around for one and send me pictures to choose one, but I ended up having to look for my own, which is fine, it just made for some last minute scrambling. The entire front and back yard were to be irrigated, but after they were done I received a bill for $400 for a water line going to the fountain. Shouldn't that have been part of the irrigation, especially since a fountain was part of the original design? Then they glued the fountain to the walkway so if I want to replace it I can't without ruining the flagstone! The other problem I had was when they said they would start in 2 weeks. Two weeks later they showed up for one day then never came again. A couple weeks later I called abraham and asked him what the hold up was and he said one of his workers had family problems, etc but didn't bother to communicate with me that my yard would be on hold until I actually asked! That's poor business practice in my opinion. I asked for an itemized receipt and never received one. Everytime I paid an installment I asked for a receipt and never got one. I finally got a receipt when I told him I wouldn't give him the check if I didn't get one. So in the end, the quality of the work and materials was good, but his business practices are questionable. Use with caution.

Highly recommended! I originally asked for 3 quotes from different landscapers and chose Abescape because Abraham is professional, timely, and doesn't try to overcharge me from the original quote. His work is outstanding and I am a very happy client. He is also very nice and can be contacted via text, calls, and e-mail, which is convenient. Other landscapers were no-shows, gave higher rates, or cancelled on my consultation appointments last minute. Thank you Abe for a job well done!
