Review by in Midlothian, VA
On the plus side, they are very professional, flexible and the quality was reasonably good. I liked the sales guy very much, he had good suggestions, and we hired him partly due to his experience with the specific sod we elected to install, Zeon zoysia. The other bidder did not have any experience with that grass. For general landscaping projects, they would likely do a good job for you. However, my rating reflects a few things I wasn't completely happy with. First, one of my top priorities in my project was to fix how rain was pooling on my patio because it was lower than the ground around it. i was clear that the backyard had to be re-graded to run water away from the patio. The sales guy didn't communicate clearly to the crew about that, and they had to take up the sod they had just laid to change the grading for a section. It still isn't how I envisioned and expected it, but we'll see if their "fix' will work. Second, part of the hardscaping was not to my liking. Perhaps I watch too much HGTV, but I expected some type of design on paper to see beforehand. That didn't happen, and consequently I end up with a couple things I would have changed had I known it beforehand. But it would have been too much trouble to find a different way to do it, so I am having to live with it. Had I seen that on paper or screen beforehand, it would not have been built that way. Finally, during the sales review before selecting them, I clearly said I wanted a plastic construction fence around the sodded area to keep my dogs off of it. The crew was not informed of it and consequently not equipped to put it up when they finished. These guys seemed to be pretty good in general, but if you are discerning and detailed, if you use them you had better be very specific about what you want or don't want, and make sure you watch and ask questions all along the way as work progresses.

Berkeley Design was very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. The crew did an excellent job and cleaned up all debris afterwards. I would highly recommend Berkeley Design to anyone.

Review by in Newport News, VA
Mike Turkovick, is easy to work with. The overall quality of the work is about 3.5. I think his work crew are a bit less than professional. Had to have them come back to complete part of the job. They covered the water meter with mulch that had to be removed so the city could read the meter. Still pending them eliminating the weed on part of the project property. So the jury is sort of still out overall. I have sought to give them the opportunity to maintain the fedding and weeding schedule on the property.

Mike is really nice, and aims to please. He has great design ideas, and they are carried out well. I can't speak to the fairness of the price other than that he was about the same or less than two others. His team turned my yard from an embarrassment to something that I love. I only had enough money for part of the yard, looking forward to hiring him to do the rest at some point.

At this point I have had limited experience with the Berkeley Design Group. I have just hired Mike to do a small landscape renovation to my backyard. So far I have found him to be responsive in a timely manner, knowledgeable, and easy to work with.

The Berkeley Design Group was wonderful to work with. Mike is very knowledgeable about local conditions and gave us a great landscaping design that we can work with that included hardscape and wonderful flowerbeds.

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
