We had a small job in our back yard pool area. I called Creative Landscapes, as well as others. I thankfully settled on Paul. He took into consideration what we envisioned for the job. Made some changes that saved a good sum of money. Used plants and materials that were intended to last and be drought tolerant. His crew chief Cody and crew worked steadily and efficiently so the job was done in a timely manner. The only problem that arose was a sprinkler line cracked under the driveway due to truck weight. That was remedied quickly and easily thankfully. Paul was great to work with. Very mild mannered and courteous. He even had a set of plans for my wife so she could follow along easily during his proposal. I will certainly call Creative Landscapes again should we have another project.
My husband and I are big fans of Paul and his crew. They were very patient and answered all of our questions. Even though we have a tiny back yard, Paul put a lot of thought into the design to meet our exact needs. His design and price were better than those of other landscapers. We had problems with our sprinkler system which took Paul & his crew much longer to repair than originally anticipated and I really appreciate that Paul still stuck with his original estimate. He has a lot of integrity, and he puts his heart into his work. We are very happy with the results! Additionally, after the work was already completed, we had some problems with a couple plants because of the sprinkler and Paul replaced them! He is so sweet.
I hired Paul for a landscape design in September 2012. He presented me with a professional color design along with color prints of each plant chosen for my backyard. I had sticker shock when I saw the price and started to shop around. By March 2014, I had to tell the third “other” landscaper to take a hike and that his service was not needed. I called Paul in a pinch, he re-evaluated the job and was hired that night. His crew arrived the NEXT day and was complete in 6 days. In those 6 days the crew removed weeds, trenched and laid new irrigation (7 stations), rototilled for sod and planted with proper spacing over 200 plants. After that was completed, they incorporated my 5 citrus trees that I had in pots at my request. It has been one month and three plants had died but after a call to Paul, I have a limited Unconditional Guarantee on all of the plants that were planted and will be replaced this week. I only have two thumbs and they are both up for Paul and his team.
I cannot say enough about Paul and Creative Landscapes. We had four bids and Paul outshined them all. His design for our front yard was right on. His presentation was very professional with a brochure, a drawing, plant pictures with discriptions, maintenance instructions, proposed payment plan and business cards. With the plant pictures and discriptions there was no misunderstanding on the color scheme, spacing, coverage and height of the plants. Pauls crew were on time, efficient, worked hard, professional and kept the job site very clean. Paul and his lead man (Cody) work hand in hand to make sure everything is per the design plan. Pauls knowledge on plants, color and arrangement design is phenomenal and the main feature of the design was supervised by Paul himself. It was a pleasure working with Creative Landscapes, Paul and his crew. I will recommend them to everyone.

Paul and his team are AMAZING! They took my ugly and pathetic, weed strewn, dry, and dusty excuse of my front and back yards and turned them into a showcase of xeriscaping. I now have a yard that is uses very little water with native California plants.The yard has beautiful native and natural plants and makes good use of the boulders that have been placed.For the first time in years I like to go into the backyard and just look at the scenery; the rocky dry riverbed, the native plant choices, the walkway and paths.

My family and I can now enjoy what a beautiful back yard should look like. From beginning to end I was so impressed with Paul and his crew. They really work hard. I would only recommend Paul and no one else. Planting the correct plants and having the appropriate sprinkler system will save money. It’s hard to leave home now. Thank you so much.

Good Morning Paul-
Art and I would like to thank you very much for your kind gift sent to us. We all are enjoying the fruit. We are very happy with the outcome of our backyard. The synthetic turf is so wonderful!! We sit back there daily and enjoy it. Our doggies love it too! Thank you so much for your great work performed.
God Bless you!

Thank you for your fine work and your great working crew who did a clean, thorough, and quick job at refreshing our yard. As you know, ” a man’s castle is his home,” however our shaggy yard was beginning to work on our mental state of being. The kids have been in the sand pit for hours on end, and we are so appreciative of our sanity being restored as they pour their boundless energy into digging till they get to China. We look forward to using our patio more for get together’s and summer al fresco dinners. Maybe, to also enjoy some of the benefits from our planned organic vegetable garden in the back patio area. Thank you also for the Harry and David gift of thanks. We appreciate all that you did even when you were under the weather. Please take care of yourself so you can be around when we desire the vegetable garden to be removed. Ha, ha, ha. I am taking heed to your warning, that just about the time my blood, sweat and tears have yielded our first harvest, they’re giving the same things away at Stater Bros for almost free.

“Our cat had died and we wanted to turn our back yard into a flower and vegetable garden in Kiva’s memory. The care Paul takes enchanted my 4-year-old daughter. He even made space for her own special playhouse garden with her own gate! He’s the kind of personable businessman that you tell people, “Paul did my garden,” and then you give them the number for Creative Landscapes.” Thanks, Paul!

I really was fed up with my yard. I was sick and tired of planting the wrong plants, having them look stupid, and doing the research of what should go where. Paul came out an listened to what my wife and I wanted, and designed a beautiful back yard. He’s knowledge is top notch and his turn around time and communication was amazing. His workers were very kind and did a great job. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND DON’T CALL ANYONE ELSE! CALL PAUL AND HE WILL GIVE YOU A BEAUTIFUL DESIGN, IN A TIMELY MANNER, WITHOUT AN INFLATED PRICE !!!! WE WILL HAVE HIM BACK FOR MORE WORK!

We had Paul draw up a design for our front yard planter, we loved his ideas and plan. We are DIYers, so we purchased the plants through Paul. They arrived in a couple of days. The plants were healthy and great looking. Paul is a wonderful man, very knowledgeable and personable. He was great in staying within our budget. He gave us great tips on planting our new plants. We are so happy with the results.

Paul came highly recommended to us. We took him under our wings about a year and 2 months ago. He did our front yard landscaping and we were extremely pleased with the results. He is very conscientious, customer service oriented and he made sure we are happy with the outcome. He even follows up after the project is finished. I greatly recommend his services.

Paul did a good job. I have worked with him for 2 years and he is completely knowledgeable. He has excellent crew and he puts everything in writing. He looks up to his contract and is great with follow up. He is honest and very hardworking. He does what he says. I will definitely recommend him as a landscaper.

I had Paul draw up plans for a portion of my large backyard. I loved what he put on paper, so I went with it. I am so glad I did! He turned my back field into a parklike setting. Paul was easy to communicate with regarding changes and add-ons. I am getting nothing but positive feedback on my new yard. Thanks Paul!

Paul came highly recommended by a friend, and he certainly lived up to and surpassed his already stellar reputation. As a novice gardener, Paul was patient and explained all the steps necessary in great detail. The design turned out beautiful and exceeded anything I could have dreamt up myself. Throughout the process Paul and his crew were professional and always within reach and quick to respond. Paul saw the project through from beginning to end, paying attention to all the little details that made working with him such a pleasure. I certainly will work with Paul again for Phase 2 of my project.

I contacted Creative Landscapes to design our front and back yard. Lindsay was the consultant we used. She was very friendly and receptive to what we wanted (eco-friendly and low maintenance). The front yard was to be xeriscape (low water) and the backyard was to have lawn. They took into account my husband and my lack of gardening ability and desire for a low maintenance yard. I was extremely happy with the plan and I look forward to seeing how the front yard will look once we implement the plan. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs a change in their landscaping.

We just used Creative Landscape to design and landscape our backyard. The back yard had never been landscaped and was full of weeds and rocks. Paul and his crew took our brown, weedy dusty backyard and turned it into a beautiful retreat! From start (the design) to finish, Paul was friendly, helpful, timely, kept our budget in mind and provided constant updates on the project’s progress. He listened to our questions and responded quickly with solutions. It is evident he has years of experience in this field. His crew was hard-working, respectful and finished within a timely manner. We would highly recommend Creative Landscapes and look forward to them starting on phase 2 of our project! Many, many thanks, Paul and crew!!

I used Creative Landscapes for a custom home I renovated. The design turned out so well and I could envision all the plants with the 3D video. The whole process went quite smoothly and I am thrilled with the results. Paul and Joe really listened to what I needed so I had only a couple of changes. Thanks so much!

There are no words to describe how happy we are with our yard. Paul and the crew are the best

I had my yard designed by Joe and Paul and landscaped February 10. Joe came by with a CD of the design as it would look when it was grown. I was definitely stunned, and when the workmen showed up under Paul’s super- vision, it was everything I dreamed of. The fountain is yet to come but they have wired it and it will be complete in a couple weeks. It is stunning! My chihauhau LOVES to wander through the plants and spends a lot of time out- doors now also. Thank you Paul and Joe. Peggy Kuhn

I still can’t believe that the crew of Creative Landscape got our backyard done in 1 day. We had wanted a low maintenence backyard with native plants that did not require lots of water. We also wanted to replace the grass areas with rock to cut down on water usage. Out budget was not much, but Paul and Joe did a wonderful job in getting the final numbers that worked for our budget. I really like the packet that had our design in it and the CD that Joe created showing a 3D view of what the backyard would look like. The crew worked very hard and they were very professional to the “T”. They were very clean, organized and friendly. I have already had people around the block as about Paul. Thank you again for a job well done.

Paul and his team did a execllent job with our backyard. From the first designs to the final designs, Paul worked with us on what we wanted and within our budget. Not at any point were we pressured. We got other quotes and nobody was willing to work with us on what we wanted, but Paul did. He listened and came through with spectacular results. Paul’s many years of experience and professionalism and kindness show’s in his work and his crew. I highly recommend Creative Landscapes.

Paul designed and installed a Xeriscape yard for us. What can I say – it is amazing! He came up with exactly what I wanted and we could not be happier. I know it looks great because the passing cars slow down to check it out as they drive by the house. Thanks Paul!
November 16, 2010
From beginning to end, Paul was the consummate professional. I never felt pressure. His contract packet was complete, fully informative, a testament to his intent to remain in contact even after the job was complete. His designs were beautiful and I’m very excited to watch my backyard mature! Paul’s crew was wonderful, extremely efficient, and hard working! Although, work was delayed by rain, Paul called me every day the job was not fully complete to assure me. Finally, once the job was complete, we received a “thank you” in the mail! I’ve already recommended Paul to my colleagues with Wonderful results. Thanks again Paul!

I had my front yard done with rocks, ground cover and plants. I had a few bids but I chose Paul because he was very professional and I love the folder with his design of your yard.Paul took the time to answer questons and always followed up with phone calls. I like that. I felt he took an interest in your needs for your home. Paul’s crew were very polite and made sure you were happy with the job. I would recommend Creative Landscape to my friends and family. Now I cant wait for the finished project of seeing my plants bloom. Thanks again Paul your the Best!

I asked Creative Landscapes to come up with a design to install rock in my yard, because my water bill and gardening costs were so high. Paul came up with such a beautiful design that it looks like it has been there forever! Two of my neighbors were so impressed that they had Creative Landscapes do their yards, too!
