Review by Genevieve D. in Los Altos, CA
Ryan updated my sprinkler system as requested, and gave me a 1 year warranty. However, he came to Los Altos from Hollister, I guess, and was reluctant to provide further service to the system as needed under the warranty. He said it was "too far to come". If that was the case he should not have accepted the job. My sprinkler system is still not functioning as it should, and he has now refused to even return any of my calls. I am extremely dissatisfied. The "warranty" is not worth the paper it is written on.

Ryan does satisfactory work but I was not made aware in advance that I would be charged $150/ hour (his standard hourly) for travel to and from the job site.

Review by in Hollister, CA
Ryan was very knowledgeable about the sprinkler system. Replaced control box and updated all the stations to code. He also did a great one-time job cleaning up the trees/bushes around the property. Removing several and hauling away all the yard waste. Would hire again.

Review by in San Jose, CA
Ryan and team showed up during the scheduled appointment. He asked what was the issue we were experiencing with the sprinkler system. Then they took some time to evaluate the issue. He let me know exactly what they would do to resolve the issue. After picking up the necessary replacement parts, they got to work. they finished in a short amount of time and demonstrated a working system.

Review by in Hollister, CA
Ryan was extremely responsive to all my questions or concerns. He and his team did a great job on our backyard. We had purchased the home new 5 months ago and so the backyard was just MUD and CLAY! Ryan took the little input I had and expanded upon it. Our backyard is incredible now. We love it! Low Maintenance but full of color and pathways and everything else we could want! Thank you Ryan and team for the great service!

Review by in San Jose, CA
Ryan was very responsive, his price was good and since he had his equipment in the area they were able to do the job that afternoon. I hired them to clear weeds, rock areas in the front and back, and haul away some trash. I ordered 3.5 tons of rock and they picked it up. This saved me a delivery charge, They sprayed the area with a pre-emergent herbicide to help control new weed growth. They did everything in a very professional manner and did a complete cleanup when done. I would certainly recommend Down and Dirty Landscaping.

Seal of Approval

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.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
