I hired Zavalas Landscaping to install several large trees in my backyard (5 arborvitaes. 1 clump bird and 1 kwanzan cherry) with tree rings and mulch. The owner (Danny) worked with me very closely, listening to my requests and adapting to scope changes. The work was amazing and Danny is a consummate professional. What sets him apart from other contractors is that he actually listens to and cares about the homeowners desires. He made it very clear that his priorities are the long-term health of the trees he put in and my satisfaction with the work at the end of the day. I would definitely recommend him to anyone doing landscaping/hardscaping work!
Let me start by saying, I don't often write reviews unless someone does exceptional work. That said, I would highly recommend you consult Zavala landscaping. Danny is professional and takes pride in his work, which is reflected in the attention and time his crew take to do the job right. He is onsite to make sure everything is performed to the highest standards.
There is a tendency for contractors to do the bare minimum, work that is "good enough" (in a business that can have very thin margins, I recognize). You won't find that here. If you want a solid landscape project or maintenance performed, where you don't have to be constantly keeping an eye and make sure corners are not cut, or keep calling someone back to make sure they finish some small portion of the job they promised to get to later, then call Danny.
Danny did our mulching, clean up, and edging. Without reproaching our other landscapers work or our lawn maintenance guy, Danny made some suggestions for things that could be improved. We look forward to working with him on design projects in the near future.
While I wouldn't say his prices are cheap, they are not the most expensive either. They are, however, worth every penny.
Dan was professional, creative and meticulous, paying great attention to detail, with the project from beginning to end. He was so personable and easy to work with. His staff was respectful and kept our property very neat and clean while the patio was being built. The entire project was well organized and the finished product exceeded our expectations. Dan created an outdoor living space that is absolutely amazing! We receive continuous compliments on the design and quality of workmanship. We plan on hiring Dan for all of our future outdoor projects.
I've always been the person to leave a review when I feel its necessary, and this is definitely a time where I feel it's necessary. I cannot begin to describe how absolutely perfect my driveway turned out! I couldn't be more impressed by someone's work. Danny Zavalas and his team and the work that he does is extremely professional, neat, and no doubt a fair price for the end result. Danny also stays and participates on site with his workers and doesn't "abandon" them to work by themselves. He gets involved in his work and genuinely takes his time to listen to the customers needs/wants and provides his own advice and critiquing for your best interest. Apart from keeping his work neat, he makes sure to clean whatever debris is caused by his workers. The price may be a bit higher but it lost definitely matches the final product and is nothing short of his work.
