In 35 years of repeated remodeling and landscaping jobs on our home in Oakland hills, we’ve come across only two other contractors we were any where near as happy with as Nathan. Nathan excels in all aspects of the work. He knows a lot about plants and design and offers his valuable opinion when asked, but doesn’t push his views. He had several suggestions to change the architect’s plan (which was very good to start with) that greatly improved the job. His bid was a bit higher than average, but he doesn’t “nickel and dime”–thus probably comes in lower at the end. (It is a real pleasure to work that way). He is flexible and easily accepts changes that occur as the the job progresses. The quality of his work is equally outstanding. His crews are extremely competent, quiet, friendly and very professional. There are no long absences while the job sits, yet when the plant we wanted was out of stock, with no real delivery date set, Nathan was quite willing to agree to wait as we wanted, rather than go with second best. He then worked hard to find a source of the preferred plants. When some of the sod provided to him were not up to standard, he worked hard and quickly to get the supplier to fix the problem and committed himself to making us happy. We would absolutely have him back to do another job.
