They were very prompt and courteous. All work crews were quite good, left the work area clean and were very nice. I had time constraints for thee job and they satisfied my every request. Will use them again for a future project.

Review by in San Jose, CA
While the quality of work seems good, there was a lapse in communication between Bill and his crew, causing unforeseen added expenses during the final walk through. I stated to Bill, a simple call could have avoided any final billing surprises. I will use Bill again and have him quoting another small project. To summarize, the quality of work was very good. The value is unknown as I am not an expert in installing a fence or planting a tree. The major issue was a lack of updated communication.

Overall I am very satisfied with the work that was done to my patio. Bill was great and listened to me and was always available to me should I have a question or problem. I would and probably will use General Landscaping Service in the future. I am certainly enjoying my patio much more than before they did the work. Sinceeely, Mike S

Everyone in this company is wonderful. Project is only 50% complete, but I am very happy with the work so far. They keep me informed as to where we are on the landscaping, and are very professional.

Review by in Santa Clara, CA
Bill, the owner of General Landscaping Service, was the only landscaper who suggested concrete pavers for my project. The men that worked our project were polite, friendly and really knew what they were doing. It was fun to watch them and ask questions along the way. Their English was not very good, but we were able to communicate very well. When I asked Bill where to get more pavers in case some got broken, he replied that for the next 50 years that if we had any problems with any of their work we should just call him and he will fix the problem. I would recommend General Landscaping Service to anyone.

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.
