After a two-year home remodeling project, our front yard and back yard need to redo completely. We contacted several landscaping service companies and finally selected JDH. Jose (the owner) is friendly and very professional. He came out to give us a free quote and measurements. We told Jose what we were looking for in a design and he patiently answered our questions and gave excellent suggestions. Then Jose brought us to a great nursery with a huge collection so we could find the plants we like. During the time, Jose gave us lots of useful suggestions. He helped us make the decisions and we are very happy about the final selections. Jose's crew were exceptional in their dedication to the job - they worked long days, moved a lot of debris to prepare the site, and paid careful attention to every detail in making sure every job is perfectly done. They were also very friendly and even helped me fix a few things that were not within the project scope.Jose and his crews at JDH delivered great service, great quality, great price and the project was done quickly. Their attention to detail made for a very successful transformation of our front yard and back yard. It's almost half years since we finished the project and we are truly satisfied and would absolutely recommend JDH and Jose! More...

Jose and his crew are Excellent! JDH put in a new drip system and totally new landscaping, front rear and driveway side. We worked together to select a beautiful healthy collection of plants and trees. Jose planted a fabulous ground cover with large flagstones, so we don't have to have lawns mowed anymore. Lastly, his crew has been terrific maintaining our landscape.Definitely Recommend Jose!!! More...

Wow! Jose and his crew just finished landscaping my front yard and it looks amazing! They checked my irrigation system, trimmed all of my bushes, built a small stone retaining wall, planted lots of new plants, and added new bark and gravel. The work was done very efficiently, in a timely manner and at a reasonable price. I highly recommend JDH Garden Services to anyone needing landscape/gardening services! More...

We recently had JDH Garden Services re-landscape our front and back yards, rebuild a small retaining wall, and replace our irrigation system. Jose and his team performed the work in a professional manner, communicated effectively along the way, and completed the work on time...all at a fair price. Although there were the inevitable minor bumps along the way, Jose was easy to work with and offered various options to go forward. I would use JDH Garden Service again for any future landscaping needs. More...

JDH built a low 70 foot long retaining wall around our pool.  The wall was built with Allan Block / Calstone to replace an old wood retaining wall.  Jose hit every point of our specifications, returned calls promptly, and responded to emails the same day.  His bid for the job was priced lower  than others and was more complete.  He provided samples of our chosen material on site to confirm our selection and its appearance in the landscape.  He was on the job when needed to direct his men, who were also experienced in their work.  The work occurred over a rainy period causing a few lost days, but picked up without delay.  The work started on schedule, and was completed in a timely manner.  Jose and his men offered several suggestions during the work that proved to be beneficial.  Each day and at the conclusion of the work, site cleanup kept the area in good shape.  The final cleanup exceeded the boundaries of the job. The Allan Block / Calstone wall looks great, and we are very satisfied with the work by JDH Garden Services. More...

Jose and his crew did an amazing job with our back yard transformation.  We had used his services in the past for irrigation I and remembered what a fantastic job he did, so I didn't hesitate to call on him again. His crew is extremely competent, clean, efficient and very courteous.  We had him put in  additional irrigation, new plants, leveling/grading of the yard as well as adding  gravel, flagstone and other hardscape.  I appreciated that Jose gave us a very itemized and accurate quote and made sure the job was done to our complete satisfaction.  He made some great recommendations when we were picking plants.  JDH did a wonderful job and we couldn't be happier.  I would recommend JDH Garden Services for any garden job.

We just used JDH Garden Services again, this time for a full replanting of our front and back yard.  We are so pleased with the end result!  Jose and his team were extremely helpful and polite.  Jose had some great ideas for how to implement our vision, and he brought some new ideas to us that we hadn't thought of.  We noticed his team put forth extra effort in certain areas to patch up some broken stones that had come loose, which was really appreciated.  They were quick and efficient and always did a good job cleaning up at the end of each day.  We are so happy with our new yard!

We've moved several times over the last twenty years and have therefore employed a number of different landscaping service and gardeners and I have to say that Jose and his team at JDH are easily the very best. We initially hired them to install an entirely new lawn. We got bids from four vendors and Jose stood out as the most professional and thorough of all of them. They finished the job earlier than expected and the team was outstanding. Hard-working, on time, detail oriented and extremely thorough about cleaning up at the end of every day. We then hired them for weekly service. They showed up exactly on time every week and were always extremely professional and extremely thorough. Afterwards, every walkway and deck was always left without a blade of grass. I've been with Jose when he's interacting with his team and it's clear he has very very high standards and expects his team to meet them. He's built a terrific business from scratch and it's impossible to do that without going above and beyond for all of your customers. Very highly recommended More...

I have been working with the owner of JDH Garden Services Inc., Jose Henriquez since June 2016. We found him to be very knowledgable, experienced, reasonable and responsible. He has a very well trained and skilled crew who work efficiently and are very respectful. We also appreciate that Jose himself shows up on the job to guide the crew, help with the job and answer questions. We often add more work than we had originally agreed upon and every time Jose has been able to accommodate us. His fee schedule is very fair and well worth the work. Our gardener retired two years ago after he had been with us for 30+ years. We worked with different gardeners until we found Jose. We highly recommend JDH Garden Service Inc. More...

JDH was recommended to me by a co-worker and I have to say they exceeded our expectations. We used Jose and his team to remove two large dead pines in our back yard and could not have had a better experience. JDH was great with scheduling and called us before Jose arrived to our house to take a look and give us an estimate. The proposal was priced well and they were very efficient in getting that information to us. They also informed us that permits would be needed to remove the trees and worked that into the estimate and handled it with the City of San Carlos, which my wife and I greatly appreciated as we did not need to do anything to get the permits on our end. In terms of the actual job, we could not be happier. The team was very efficient, professional and did a great job. They removed 2 large trees in our backyard with difficult access and on a hill in just three days! In addition, they cleaned up after themselves and left the place spotless at the end of the job. They were considerate of our time, place and our neighbors. They emailed and called in advance to let us know when the team was arriving and kept us in the loop the entire time. I highly recommend them for tree removal and anything pertaining to landscaping. We will continue to use their services as we enhance our backyard and maintenance. More...

After parting ways with our previous landscape designer, we interviewed three more landscape companies before selecting JDH.  Jose was honest, kind, and attentive to what my wife and I wanted our end project to look like.  His crew worked efficiently and installed a watering system, path and up lights, plants, sod and pavers.  We love the final result.

My husband and I love to work in the yard but finally had to admit that we weren't finding the time and it was in disarray. After bad experiences in the past with gardeners not using discretion in the weeding, trimming, etc, and losing some plants we cared about, we were nervous to try again. Jose walked with us through the yard and listened to our ideas but also expressed his strong knowledge, providing details on how to better care for what we had already (citrus, fruit trees, various bushes, flowers, etc). He also had suggestions on what to add, move, or remove that would be consistent with our vision. He was patient as we wrote every "please do this" and "please don't do that" into the contract.In the end we hired Jose and his team to do a major clean up and check the sprinkling system; to select and purchase several plants and wood chips; to get everything in the ground; and to provide ongoing maintenance. We are so pleased with the plants he selected, how the yard looks, and how well he continues to communicate about extra available ad-hoc services. I would recommend Jose and his team to anyone for a landscaping project, large or small, as well as the maintenance. More...

Jose and the team have just fixed a retainer wall on my property in Emerald Hills.  I believe JDH did the job quite well.  I would call them up for another project with no hesitation.A few things to be desired.  They had to move a schedule a bit, since they had some issues with other project they were handling simultaneously.  However, I can understand this kind of change on their line of work.  Things happen as they work through their project.Actually while they were working on the retainer wall, they have found one of wood beams is rotten.  They needed a few more hours to replace it.  It would have been really nice, if they have given me a range of cost (likely cost to at most cost), instead of just a dollar amount.However, those are a hard issue to avoid completely.  Again, they did a wonderful job and I am pretty happy with the outcome.  And, it was a stress free project thanks to Jose's excellent communication skill.

We contacted Jose because we were impressed with his positive reviews. We needed to remove our old front lawn and replace it with drought resistant plants and schrubs. Jose came to our house at the agreed time and gave us suggestions to best transform the curb appeal of our home. We really appreciated him meeting us at a local nursery to educate us on different plant options that would work well for our project. We received his written proposal a few days later and found his prices more than fair. We took a leap of faith and allowed him to come up with a great design. Our project took a little over a week and his crew made sure the area was always swept up and clean every night. We highly recommend Jose and JDH Garden Services. More...

Jose is a rare find.  He and his crew just replanted and cleaned up both our front and back gardens.  "Cleaned up", however, doesn't even begin to cover the amount of work, thought, planning and execution it took to complete our job.  Every inch of hard, compacted soil in our back garden had to be turned, soil added, amendments added and old plantings cleared out.  Our irrigation system had to be replaced.  Palms and tree ferns had to be removed.  Our 30-foot palm had to be trimmed.  Our front lawn was removed and stone spread to replace it.  But that was only the beginning.  We'd had water-intensive landscaping and needed to replant with less demanding shrubs and ground covers.  We had no idea what kind of plants we wanted and needed to replace the old growth.  Now here's where Jose really showed his "stuff"!  He knows his plants and their requirements like the back of his hand.  He listened to what we liked and didn't like and came back with incredibly good suggestions and ideas. He took us to his favorite nursery and picked out our plantings with us. He turned a barren area outside our bedroom into a flagstone "patio" with a potted tree, climbing vines and other small plantings.  He put in native grasses along with attractive rock/gravel in our front garden.  He replanted a tough area around our koi pond.  He and his crew re-potted a large number of plants on our side patio and put in a drip system so that we no longer have to think about hand watering them.  I can't really begin to tell you the amount of work that was done over a two-week period.  Jose's men were hard-working, organized, meticulous and clearly knew what needed to be done and how to do it.  They were courteous and caring with our older dog and puppy.  There was no "lag time" from the start of our project to the completion of it.  The work was done efficiently and thoroughly.Finally, Jose is a great communicator.  He is very hands-on and promptly responded to our questions and requests via email, since that was easier for us due to our work schedule and his.  His office staff is great.  Jose was running 10 minutes late to meet with us one day, and the office called to let us know about the delay.  Imagine that!We could not be happier with the results of Jose's work and all our interactions with him and his crew.  We are also using him to do the regular maintenance. If you need someone who can do it all from concept to completion, then Jose is your man. More...

Jose's team restructured and replanted our complete backyard. What started out as a huge mess with old garden beds, random terraces and old concrete retaining walls, became a beautifully landscaped property that fulfills our kids' need for lawn space, my husband's love for fruit trees, and allows me to still grow plenty of vegetables as well.Jose is always communicative and on top of things. The best about his services was that I didn't need to hire a landscape designer to plan things out. Jose had a great understanding of what I envisioned for the space and just ran with it, without needing drawings and specifications. More...

Our job was smaller than most of the others mentioned here but Jose made us feel like it was his top priority. We moved to a townhouse with a small backyard a few months ago and decided to replace a few trees. Jose and his crew did a terrific job of taking them down, grinding down a large stump, pulling up small stumps, and planting several new trees.  They were fast, courteous, and cleaned up extremely well at the end.  Price was completely fair.

Professional, curtious and hard working. Scott has that rare work ethic of integrity, perfection and is very diligent. I had four quotes for this work and asked Scott if he would undertake the job, his work has been outstanding. Even our neighbours commented on "how professional" he was. I'm more than happy for anyone to inbox me for a true reference for Scott and his company. There is also pictures on his site from beginning to end of the project which my family love. More...

I'm a bit late in writing this review, but Jose and his team did an awesome job it transforming my back yard from a weedy field into a usable back yard where my kids can play with my dog and enjoy the space.  His team fixed up a stone retaining wall, installed edging, added landscape lighting, and even covered over a small unsightly patch of my neighbors retaining wall I had not even thought to improve.  Really great job!

Jose and his team went above and beyond to achieve our new backyard. They were friendly and courteous to my family. They left the backyard tidy and their tools organized at the end of every day during the work. They were the best price and finished the work quicker than proposed. I was also impressed by how responsive Jose was with any phone call or email.They are now performing maintenance on our property and we're really happy with the cost and how it looks.

Jose and his team are outstanding to work with. We had his team work on an elaborate front fence, take out our lawns, and plant drought resistant plants over the summer. His team was thorough and friendly and did an outstanding job. What's great about Jose and his team is that you don't need a designer if you work with them - they've seen all sorts of designs before and they will know what you want based pictures and simple instructions. Great group. More...

I recently worked with Jose on building a long set of stairs in the hillside backyard of my new home.  I had a fixed budget and Jose worked with me on what he could do for my budget.  His communication is top-notch,  both by phone and email.   The project turned out beautifully, even better than I had pictured in my head. Jose's crew are skilled and worked very hard.  They were polite and respectful the entire time, and cleaned up each day before they went home.  I give JDH Garden Services my full endorsement.  If you are looking for regular gardening services, or landscaping projects of any size JDH will impress you. I'm very pleased with how our project turned out and have already received several compliments on it.  I look forward to working with Jose on future projects. More...

Jose is fantastic!! I needed him to stop by and evaluate a broken sprinkler system. Not only did he do the necessary repairs he also took the time to fix a faulty wire and valve and to re-program our control box. Lastly, he was able to accommodate me on very short notice as well which I greatly appreciated. Highly recommend! More...

We contacted Jose and meet with him to discuss our needs.  He had good ideas and recommendations.  Jose was easy to work with and did a great job.His price was fair and he started work within a couple of weeks.  A week earlier than he had originally estimated.  We wanted to remove our dead lawn and old irrigation.  Jose sent me a list of plants that should work well and I let him know my preferences.  I liked most everything and he brought a few things that were not on the list that look great.  He even saved one of the few plants I had been able to keep alive and replanted with the others.  There was lots of clean up of overgrowth which now looks great and as if it was part of the whole landscaping plan.  We now have a drip irrigation system going and Jose even put a drip on my container on the front porch so I don't have to think about watering anything.  This was a small detail and nice touch.Our project was completed within a few weeks and I am very happy with the results.  I'm pretty easy going about where things were placed, but Jose was patient with the few changes I wanted and I could tell if I had been more picky he would have been very accommodating.  I'd say the only downside was that sometimes email communications were not always super quick, but I wanted someone to landscape my front yard, not be a pen pal.I would recommend JDH Garden Services.

I sublet my home for a year to someone while my husband and I were living abroad.  The tenant had two small dogs and smoked in our backyard and didn't clean up after the dogs or himself!  I called several landscapers in the area to come and give me an estimate to restore my backyard to what it had once been.  Of everyone I met with Jose was the most respectful of my home, gave a fair estimate and timeframe for the work, and didn't try to push additional work on me that I wasn't ready to do.Jose and his crew absolutely transformed my backyard into a clean beautiful space.  Their work was thorough, efficient, timely, and I could absolutely tell they truly cared about restoring my backyard and making it even better than it was.  I will absolutely call Jose for additional outside projects and would recommend him to anyone looking to beautify their outdoor living space.

JDH Garden services has been one of the best experiences I've had with any contract service.  Jose came to my place the day after I called for an estimate.  I knew kind of what I wanted to do to my backyard, but I'm no landscape designer by far.  Jose listened carefully to what I was thinking and immediately gave me some ideas about what could be done and the best way to do it and what kind of materials to use.  At first I was a little hesitant because he was just jotting things down on paper with no pictures.  But he knew exactly what I was looking for and within a few days my backyard was transformed from  a hideous  jungle into a beautiful, well designed water efficient garden.  I plan on using JDH Garden Services in the future and I highly recommend this business.

I can't say enough about Jose and his guys, except, hire them :). You won't be sorry.The quote was very fair, and only changed with added requests that I made. First, what I look for is dependability (there's nothing worse than wondering if someone is going to show up). From day one, Jose's team arrived on time, or sometimes a little early to start working on our yard. The guys were friendly, very hardworking (8 hour+ days with very little break time), and left the work area clean and tidy every day when they left.They leveled 800 sq ft of yard, laying tons of base rock, sand, and 400 sq ft of pavers, plus 3 tons stones, assembled an 8x15 shed, and ran drainage and electrical pipe underneath. They also reconfigured our irrigation system. All this in under two weeks and always with a smile :).I would definitely recommend you contact Jose for a quote. I will for any other work I need done.

My husband and I just moved into our house and we wanted to totally redo our front yard, which included putting in grass.  I found JDH Gardening Services on Yelp and was impressed with the great reviews.  Jose Henriquez and his team came by to give us an estimate and upon meeting Jose, we knew that he "knew his stuff".  He was very knowledgeable of the right sod to put down and what plants/trees/shrubs worked best for which area of the yard.  He gave us some great suggestions to our proposed "ask".  His team came out to start the job.  My husband wanted to do flagstone in the front entrance, but I wasn't 100% with it.  So, mid-job, I asked Jose if we could just use bigger pavers than what we had in this other area.  I picked out the bigger pavers, but then my husband said "well, why don't we just continue using the same size pavers we currently have and just hope that Jose can find the same color match."  Well......HE DID.  Jose found the perfect match and then the job continued as planned. So, even with my multiple changes in the plan, Jose graciously worked with me on it and told me that "he would rather do what I like and do it right, than for me to not like the end result."  The end result is a BEAUTIFUL front yard that I love to wake up to.  My husband and I were very impressed with the level of professionalism, knowledge and kindness Jose and his team displayed.  They did a lot of work, a GREAT job and it was reasonably and fairly priced.   We were only going to have Jose and team do the front yard landscaping.  But, have now decided to have them continue maintenance, as the yard is so nice now and we don't want to mess it up.  :-) Net-net, If you need any type of landscaping or lawn maintenance... call JDH!!!  Jose is your guy for the job!!  Thank you Jose!! More...



21 October 2014

Late this summer I employed JDH Garden Services for the third time within the past five years.  Once again, Jose Henriquez's crew did a fantastic job for me!Jose is very professional, friendly, and responsive. Jose prepared a written list of services with a cost estimate, which I then modified (after thinking about what really needed to be done). He responded in a timely manner with a new contract and estimate, and we set up a job start date which worked for both of us.   This was a 3-full-days job, 2 men on the first day, then 3 or 4 men on days 2 and 3. I have about 7 separate garden areas that were in need of a detailed clean-up, bend-a-boards and boarders needed to be added to several areas, parts of the irrigation system needed modification, and finally every area with plantings, trees, shurbs, etc. needed a new deep mulch layer.The crew was great to work with, followed my instructions and were professional, careful, and meticulous in their work.  When I altered a few tasks as we went along, they cheerfullly and politely made the changes for me. This was hard, hard work, and I greatly appreciate what they did for me. A big thank you to Jonathan, Gonzalo, and the 2 other men.I was absolutely thrilled with the results - the landscaping (1/3 acre in a U-shape around my house) looked brand new!  Nice and neat, just the way I like it!   I love the fact that JDH Garden services offers this "one-time, when you need it, big clean up" service. In fact, I'll be calling Jose shortly for another task which needs doing! More...

Jose was very professional at every opportunity, from scheduling a time to scope the job, drafting the initial quote and eventually the final invoice. He had a well qualified team working the project who communicated at just the right level to make for a successful project.No surprises, no breakage, and when everything was completed, his team cleaned up the site and verified everything was in perfect working order before they left. There were a lot of materials used for the project, and I may have been able to get it done a little bit cheaper, but the professionalism and ease of working with Jose and his team, and the fact they got it done right the first time makes me look forward to using his services again.

We hired Jose to completely re-landscape our front and back patios. Jose and his team were fantastic to deal with, friendly, professional, and hard working, even on some of the hottest days of the year. The project involved tree and plant removal, adding irrigation with timers, flattening ground and covering with pavers, installing a section of artificial grass, planting a variety of vegetation, and other things. And during the job, they worked around a somewhat interfering fence installation without complaint. We are completely thrilled with the end results and have received many compliments from neighbors and visitors. Jose was responsive to all our questions and changes of plans and clearly explained things along the way. Really the only area for improvement is in the final invoicing where we only got one small receipt for some material. Don't get me wrong, there was absolutely no reason to question any charges. Estimates and costs were checked beforehand and whenever changes were discussed, but I think many customers expect to see copies of all receipts with a complete breakdown of costs.We will continue to have Jose periodically maintain our plants and irrigation.Very highly recommended!

He worked with me to do a few things:1) Remove the existing star jasmine bushes (I'm allergic)2) Select and plant new flowers, bushes, etc. (this was the most important part)3) Set up an automatic drip system He was always very responsive to email and on the phone.After about all the new plants were in we realized the garden still looked a little sparse, and since I wanted a fuller look Jose offered to bring in more plants and add them-- no charge for additional labor and just the materials.I would recommend Jose and his team, he works hard to ensure his customers are happy.

These guys did a great job - they were very prompt, Jose was very responsive by email or phone, and made my mess of a backyard look amazing!The only reason I'm giving them 4 stars instead of 5 is because they put a porta-potty on the premises which really began to smell (I got a complaint from a neighbor).  Once I told Jose about it, he took action ASAP, but it should have been cleaned more regularly.All in all, will use them for future services and highly recommend them to others.

The guys were excellent. They did a thorough job and cleaned my yard like I have never seen it before. They were well equipped and needed minimal direction to get the job done. I highly recommend this service. They were on time and finished the job in two hours. I will definitely, most definitely use their service again. More...

I have asked Jose for help in my yard for a variety of different projects. From removing shrubs, cutting trees, repairing sprinkler lines as well as building a solid wooden gate, Jose's crew always did a very good job and cleaned up well after the work was done. Jose was always in time to come by the house first to look what work needed to be done and his estimates are fair. Probably not the cheapest but I like that he and his group a very reliable. The last time a week ago, they worked on some sprinklers and did a good job. I found one problem with the sprinkler afterwards, but it was actually not really their fault. I contacted Jose about it and a day later the problem was solved. I would definitely recommend Jose if you are looking for reliability and a work well done.Thank you, Jose ! More...

We hired Jose, et al. for another project. I'm always impressed with the time Jose takes to explain the projectThis time we had our old, deteriorating back stairs replaced with a small deck and had our old brick patio re-leveled. Both look great. JDH and Jose have become my "go-to" company for any landscaping/outdoor projects. More...

Jose and the team at JDH are nothing short of amazing.  Great crew - on time and very professional. Jose is great to work with and works with you on the plan. He personally visited the project every day and made sure I got regular updates when I was out of town during construction.  Project came out better than I dreamed of - on time, on budget.   Landscape, brick work and drainage.  Jose and JDH is highly recommended and a pleasant surprise in this business where its buyer beware.  With JDH it's a great outcome.

We hired JDH Garden Services to landscape the small yard area at our home.  Jose was very prompt in setting up a consultation and had many ideas to maximize our garden area and make it attractive as well as practical.  I appreciated that he and his team were open to working on such a small project (approximately 400 square feet).  We jointly decided to change a few parameters of the job mid-way through and all were implemented without a hitch.  We are extremely happy with our new yard!

I'm new to lawn/yard care, having lived in San Francisco for 17 years and now, first time, have an actual yard I'm responsible for.  My first gardening service was nice enough but ended up doing bare minimum possible and very difficult to reach by phone.  Jose, the owner of JDH Garden Services, on the other hand, has been refreshingly friendly, professional,  & responsive (email & phone - quickly meeting me for initial walk thru and answering all my questions whenever I email).  He also goes above and beyond (has stopped by days outside of my normally scheduled 2x/mo service to adjust sprinklers, etc) and his team of employees have provided impeccable service.  My yard looks the best ever. Even though it's small as yards go, he and his team have given it the highest level of attention.  I'm definitely sticking with JDH as long as I'm in the area. More...

I can't say enough good things about Jose and his company, JDH Garden Services.  Like others reviewing him here, Jose met with me to review our property and share his recommendations about how to maintain and support a healthy garden.  He has proven to be as great as the reviews suggest - reliable, responsible and responsive.  Moreover, his crew holds his standards as well.  Our irrigation system broke and Jose quickly sent someone to the house to assess the situation and within an hour, it was fixed.  What a find!  JDH is GREAT!

We just bought a house, and the backyard was a disaster. We had Jose come out and give us a consultation for sodding. His price was the best for what he was offering, so we went with him. His crew was on time every morning and worked hard through the day. They completed the project ahead of schedule, and the results are far and above what we were hoping for. They even added a drip system in the gardens around the grass - bonus! Not only do we recommend JDH, there's a strong possibility that we'll use Jose's services in the future. True professionals.

We have used JDH Garden services several times for services including pruning, planting, weeding and laying down a weed blanket, cleanup, and laying down pavers in the garden. We are impressed by two significant things - Jose's very good knowledge about plants and trees- their placement, pruning, fertilizing needs, and how thorough his crews are. He clearly has trained them all to pay attention to details like small weeds, plants that need staking or special attention, and their cleanup is always complete.We recommend JDH with great pleasure!

We signed up with JDH for a one time landscape repair.  The work involved adding 3 yards of soil, 4 yards of bark, 10 5-gal plants, and 35 1-gal plants to our existing landscaping (which was done some time ago), as well as fix both our spray and drip sprinklers, fertilize existing plants, remove some overgrown ivy, etc.  The team did a great job.  Before the job started, Jose met us at Wegman's in Redwood City to pick out the plants.  All meetings and work were done on time.  And Jose is great on email - very responsive.  We were impressed enough with the work that we signed up with Jose for our ongoing landscaping maintenance starting this month.  Will try to remember to revise this review in 3-6 months with an update on JDH maintenance services.

Jose was very prompt and professional when redoing both our front and back lawn. He let us pick out our flowers/ plants and made recommendations on what is good in our area and low maintenance. His crew was quick and efficient, and the work was completed quickly. They did a good job overall. More...

We first started speaking to Jose about our front lawn because of his strong yelp reviews.  I tend to be a bit nervous when dealing with contractors, but Jose put me at ease during the screening process with his responsiveness and professionalism.  When we finally did hire him (to build a retaining wall, re-sod the lawn, repair the irrigation system, and plant flowers) he proved to be every bit as good as we had come to expect.  We highly recommend JDH Garden Services.

Three and a half years later, Jose is still as responsive and his team as wonderful as they were in 2010.  I appreciate that in addition to the mowing and blowing and trimming etc. they still take the time to water all of our potted plants (including ones that are _far_ from a hose). Our drip lines occasionally break - every time one springs a leak someone in his team comes to fix it for us right away.  I appreciate coming home and problems are just magically taken care of.  Thanks Jesus, Isidro and Juan and team, you work so incredibly hard week after week!

14 July 2013

Jose lives up to the Yelp reviews.  I hired Jose's company to do bi-weekly landscaping for our new home.  So far, JDH Garden Services has been great.  Jose showed up in person the first day and introduced himself.  He is very responsive both to text and email requests.    He always responds to email within a day.  I really appreciate someone in this business who is able to respond by phone and by email.  He speaks English just fine in case you're wondering.He also did some special projects for us like removing trees and shrubs, preparing new areas for planting (we wanted to do the planting and design ourselves), and quoting us for any work that is outside of the maintenance work.  He's been very flexible with customizing the scope of work.Sometimes, I want him and his crew to do all the work and I just write him a check.  Sometimes, I want to do some of the work myself because I enjoy gardening (and to save money) and he's very flexible in customizing a quote for what I want his crew to do.This week, his crew accidentally broke one of our sprinkler heads while mowing the lawn-- it happens, a lawn mower can snap off a sprinkler head at the riser and you might not know it until the sprinklers run again.  I emailed him a picture of what I found when I got home, and he responded the next morning by email.  This is what he wrote:"I will do my best to send someone today but if I can't someone will be out there tomorrow to fix this for you.Thank you and if you have any further questions please let me know.Regards,Jose HenriquezJDH Garden Services, Inc.Owner" ... and this is what he did: Jose fixed it the very same day like nothing happened.  Thanks, Jose!The only downside is that he's definitely expensive.  But what you get in return is that his company is reliable, he takes his job seriously, and all of his employees are insured with worker's comp-- this is the responsible way to do business anyway.I would recommend Jose and his company if you want a top notch looking yard.  - K More...

Jose and his guys cleared and re-planted our front and side yards. They were knowledgeable, efficient, polite and tidy. The job was completed on time and was reasonably priced. Jose even came by a couple of days after completion to check on the condition of the new plants and provide advice on maintenance. Very highly recommended. More...

9 June 2013

Jose is great! I hired his company to install a drip system in my back yard. He was hands down the best estimate that I got. I was very impressed with his two employees that did the work. They installed a timer, converted my sprinkler in the back to a drip, fixed the sprinklers for my lawn in both the front and back yard. I had a small issue with one of my sprinklers so I called Jose. The next day he had guys back at my house and they fixed the problem. I was very impressed with his company's work and his reliability. I highly recommend him. More...

Jose's team recently repaved my backyard. We are so very pleased with the work they did. His team is professional, respectful, and extremely clean.  Originally, Jose estimated it'll take two weeks to finish. They had to start a day/two later than planned, but they made up for it by working Sat and Sunday. They got the job done in less than two weeks! I was very happy that Jose didn't push me to replace everything. I had existing pavers that weren't laid down very well. Another company pressured me into throwing all pavers away and cementing/putting down grass for everything. Jose understood that I didn't want to do that and wanted to reuse the existing to cut down on costs.  His team carefully intermixed the new pavers and old ones to create interesting designs. I live in Santa Clara and they traveled down here every day to complete the job. I would highly recommend them. if there were 10 stars, i would give that. More...

Jose Henriquez showed up to our home to repair our sprinkler system.  He showed up on time, did everything I asked him to do, came back three times since I noticed some things still were not working properly.  He was very nice to do business with,never complained I called him too many times, always came back with a smile on his face and he fixed every thing I asked of him.  He is willing to go that extra mile to do the "right thing".  I have waited several months to put in this "yelp" and have now decided he deserves my recommendation.  We had the work done last summer.So give him a try - he understands sprinklers and seems to always be pleasant and to do the "right thing".  Happy Holidays.  B.

JDH Garden Services just recently finished redoing our front and back yards.  This was a huge job, getting rid of the rock gardens and old trees and bushes the previous owner put in years ago.  JDH added new irrigation to the front and back, prepped the soil and rolled out new sod and put in new Japanese maple trees and nice shrubs.  The final result was amazing!  Jose and his crew did a spectacular job and they were great to work with from start to finish.  Highly recommended!

13 December 2012

We also hired the services of Jose and JDH after reading all the great reviews.  We had him do a full cleanup on my parents house since they were having a tough getting a handle on all the overgrowth.  He met with us and went over everything we wanted to have done, and he worked with me on price to make sure it was something I could afford.  He and his crew came out and in 2 days the yard was completely transformed.  He even came back the following week to get a few spots that we felt needed more attention.  Overall I can't say enough about his professionalism and attention to detail.  I was very impressed with the job he did and we are going to continue using his service for monthly maintenance.  I also appreciate that he makes sure his workers are insured and covered by Workman's compensation.

31 October 2012

I contacted JDH after reading the other Yelp reviews for a thorough yard clean-up including pruning, hauling, sprinkler repairs, etc.  Jose arranged to meet me the very next day to walk the job and his crew got started a few days later.  They were extremely fast and did everything I asked them to do; even checking in with me from time to time to get my OK and to see if there was more I wanted done.  The yard looks great and we will be using JDH in the future.

I have just had JDH Garden Services install a sprinkler system in my front and back yard and am very pleased at the professional and prompt manner in which it was done.  The owner, Jose Henriquez, was on the job the whole time.  I couldn't ask for more.  I highly recommend them. More...

I had been searching for about 6 mo for a contractor to install a L-shaped concrete walkway.  I'm so glad to have found Jose and his crew.  The price was reasonable and Jose was responsive to emails and questions.  The work was completed in 1 day and followup 2 days later once the concrete was settled.  Now after 3 weeks the concrete is 99% dry, looks great and I'm so happy with the quality of the workmanship.  I will definitely recommend Jose and his crew to anyone with any garden or landscaping projects.

JDH was very professional from the first interaction to the end of the project.  Jose was always prompt with his response and kept the project on schedule and within the proposed price.  Jose was very collaborative in helping us think through some issues in the yard and how to best create a continuous green space in an untraditional layout.  We plan to use JDH for the next phase of our landscape project and look forward to working with Jose and his team.  I highly recommend JDH--they provide high value, committed professional service.

17 August 2012

We hired the services of Jose and JDH after reading all of the praise from other reviewers. We are so glad that we chose him and his team because they exceeded our expectations even from all of the reviews. His job was not easy, we had just remodeled our house and both front and back yards (around 5000 sq ft) had been unkept for 10 months. When JDH came to our property, three workers arrived and rapidly cleaned the entire space in just one day. They work very efficiently, but pay a great attention to detail. Some days up to five workers would arrive and worked on many different aspects at once (irrigation, trimming, fence mending, even fixed both a cracked pond and pump system). Jose was extremely responsible as he either would come every day to oversee the project and was prompt to reply by email.As other reviewers noted, he is also very knowledgable in horticulture so he can give good advice on where to put certain plants with respect to the lay of the land.

We were very happy with JDH Garden Services.  They are very professional, a pleasure to work with, competitively priced, and most importantly do great work.  They will not consider their work done until you are 100% satisfied with their work.  They do projects of any size (large or small), as well as regular maintenance.  Very highly recommended.

Jose and his crew just finished remodeling our backyard.  They did a fantastic job.  Jose was very committed to our project; he met us on many Sundays at the nursery to pick out plans and also at our house to discuss layout.  We had an architect do the drawings and then JDH executed the vision beautifully.  The work is beautiful and the team was even here Sat. morning to finish right on time.

Jose is by far much better than any landscaper I've previously worked with.  He spent considerable time with me to review options and encouraged me to meet him at a local nursery to identify the plants that I would like to have installed.  When the work commenced, he was on site to oversee the quality and would check in with me periodically to make sure I was pleased with the progress.  He takes a much more hands on and consultative approach and is very quality minded.  The job he did for us looks great and I highly recommend his services.

Jose is just amazing! Efficient, fast, very professional with very good taste and perfectionist in the very best meaning of this word. When I bought a house that was sold as having newly installed sprinklers and timer nothing really worked properly. I asked couple gardening services to come up with a quote. Jose's quote was three times less than others. Sure I decided to go with him. He way exceeded my expectations. I cannot dream of a better service. I know there are already a lot of excellent reviews but I am sure there will be much more. JDH are the best! More...

We are very happy with JDH Garden Services.  They do our regular maintenance, as well as occasional cleanup and minor landscaping work, and they are reliable and competent.  Our yard looks the best it has in years, since JDH took over our maintenance.  Our previous maintenance company was always trying to nickel and dime us on this or that "optional" service; we don't get any of that with JDH.Jose is a pleasure to deal with, and always responds quickly to any questions or concerns we might have.  I particularly like that I can contact him by email, and he gets back to me promptly, sometimes within minutes.We recently had JDH renew our bulk mulch and do some plantings.  Jose came by the house to take a look and give us a price, and we told him to go ahead.  We expected to hear back from him with an ETA.  Instead, when we came home from work the next day, all the work had been done!  It was so unexpected, it took us a few minutes to figure out why the yard looked so good.As far as we are concerned, you can't go wrong with JDH Garden Services.

I found Jose through Yelp and I couldn't be happier with the job that he and his men did for me.  The price was extremely reasonable (much lower than I expected) and the quality of their work was extremely high.Everything about JDH Garden Services, and Jose, its owner, is professional.  Jose was able to meet me next day to provide an estimate and a detailed description of work.  He's easy to reach via cell phone or email (the last point is important for me).  And, I really appreciate that he met me each morning while his men were working to make sure that everything was exactly as discussed.My job involved trimming many large property line hedges that hadn't been cut in years.  Some are English laurel, some are pittisporium tenufolium and some are oleander.  There is more than 100 feet of them overall (4 to 6 feet deep) -- and everything was 16 to 20 feet tall.Jose's crew trimmed each portion perfectly (no ugly chopped-in-half leaves on the English laurel, for example), didn't disturb my neighbors and made sure that every leaf and branch, including those that found their way to the pool, was picked up each night.  (This was both awesome and unecessary.)  Jose's team also did more than we talked about, cleaning out yards and yards of dead leaves that had been left behind in the shrubs from seasons past.  Finally, Jose met me when the job was done for a final walkthrough.  If only all contractors were as easy to work with and as concerned about customer satisfaction.I will absolutely work with Jose again, and I have already recommended him to a friend.

We had decided to take out the lawn in our front yard and go with a more eco-friendly design.  We found JDH on Yelp and we couldn't have been happier with their work.  Jose had great ideas and his crew was terrrific at implementing them.  We were getting ready to paint the house as well and that put a time crunch on getting the landscaping done and Jose and his crew rose to the occasion.  Our yard is the talk of the block.  Think it won't be long till we aren't the only lawnless yard on the street.  We are recommending JDH to everyone.

This is the 3rd time we have used Jose and his team at our home. This time they did everything, new lawn, new sprinklers, timers, french drains, and truck loads of new dirt.

Jose your the BEST!!! More...



22 July 2011

My wife and I recently bought a house that hadn't been lived in for almost a year, so needless to say the landscaping was in a state of disrepair.  I called Jose, among others, to get estimates on an extensive cleanup (which included irrigation system repair, removal of several large birch trees, and more general maintenance than could be typically expected of such a small property...).  His estimate was very competitive (though not the lowest), his Yelp reviews were overwhelmingly positive, and during our meeting I came away impressed by his professionalism and obvious pride in his business.  We were getting our house painted the week after, and really needed to get this cleanup done in advance, so that didn't leave much time.  Jose and his team met the challenge, showed up early each day, and exceeded our expectations over the two full days they worked on our property.  Apart from what we spec'd out in the estimate, they fixed some broken pipes, repaired the sump pump hose, and Jose himself spent an hour blowing debris from the roof and cleaning the heavily clogged gutters.  They also took it upon themselves to clean a clogged drain (the one that led to our garage flooding during recent storms) without my even asking, and Jose came back (at my convenience) after completion of the job to walk me through the irrigation system and how to work the timers/valves/etc.  I half-expected him to hand me a bill far in excess of what we'd negotiated, but it was exactly the number we'd agreed upon and he did not pressure me for immediate payment.  Jose really understands that the small things matter, customer service is everything, and people will pay a premium for superior service and quality.  I look forward to working with Jose and his team to develop our landscape further, and can't recommend him enough.

Landscapers and "yard guys" are a dime a dozen around here, so it's hard to know where to start.   thank goodness for yelp.  I had a side yard with new fencing which needed a lot of new plants and trees and I was ready for the work to be done.  Jose was quick to respond to my call and arrived with a "can-do" attitude.  I had a list of plants and trees I wanted planted and he had some ideas to add to our plan.  He emailed me the estimate that night, bought the plants the next 2 days and by day 4, I had a beautiful new side yard.  His workers arrived on time, did a major cleanup of my jungle yard (compliments of my old yard guy),  put in my new plants, ran extra sprinkler lines and added fresh soil.  I couldn't be happier.  I was so happy with their work, I hired Jose's team for my bi-weekly maintenance which I've been happy with too.  Along with the usual "cut and blow" work, when I have broken sprinkler head or additional things to plant or cut back, it's nice to know that one email will take care of it.  Jose is always quick to respond to my emails and phone calls and I really appreciate how professional he and his crew are.   I am currently recommending him to a few of my neighbors who are looking for landscaping work and I myself will be using Jose's services as we fix up the rest of our yard.

Well,   I was looking for some yard clean up.  I Yelped and up came JDH.   It had something like 20 reviews and all 5 stars.    Ok, I'll try them and find out why they have so many 5 star reviews.Jose, the owner, came out and gave me an estimate. It was a big job, too big for me to do by myself in a reasonable amount of time.  The toughest part of the job was removing some English Ivy .  It is something that has to be removed by the rootsor it grows back before you know it.  The root system is extensive and has to be dug up all in one section . Ivy never dies!Well I found out why Jose has 5 star reviews, Because he really want to work for those 5 stars.   I have to say that I am very impressed with JDH,  not only is Jose a pleasant person to deal with, he is a smart business man,  His goal is total customer statisfaction,,, no matter what it takes.I am blown away, NO one treats people or customers like that anymore.If I was to invest in a gardening service it would be JDH.   Attention to customers will make them very successfullIm thinking of having them come and give me an estimate for landscaping.Jose, if you want some figs, please come by in September...tw.

When I first saw the all 5 star reviews in Yelp for Jose, I thought it must be one of the paid vendors who filtered all bad reviews and left only the 5 star ones.  However, I called anyway, and I am glad I did!He is very prompt in responding to emails and phone calls, arriving in time, very flexible and easy to work with, and committed to his work.  I called him on a Wed afternoon and he came to my house on the same day.  We visited a nursery together  2 days later, before I had committed anything.  I have to say it makes a big difference when you can see the plants in person.  Then his estimate and references came in a few days.  Once I decided to go with him, he scheduled to finish the work in one day by sending in extra crews.  The crew finished the work as good as promised and left no mess.  A few plants didn't work out and Jose came back to fix it in the next week.It has been 2 months and I am still very happy every time I see my garden.  Jose made some very good suggestion in choosing the plants (which costs a little bit more but he is absolutely correct.)  I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone!

Overall Jose and his crew were fantastic! I used them to do a large clean up of our backyard including removing some dead trees, pulling a ridiculous amount of weeds, replanting certain areas of our yard and installing a drip system for ~100 trees & bushes. His prices are very reasonable and he completed all this in just two days, including a trip to nursery where Jose helped us pick out plants. Jose really cares about his customers. A few days after he finished, I was tinkering with the new drip system and broke something. He had someone come by and fix it that same day at no extra charge.I definitely recommend Jose & JDH and would use them again in the future. More...

Jose and his crew are excellent!  We have used their service for two major garden cleanups (about a year apart).  Jose is wonderful to work with -- he listens/asks questions/makes suggestions and then does the job exactly as we asked for.  His team is experienced and efficient. Their work greatly exceeded our expectations!The work included troubleshooting/repairing broken irrigation systems; removing weeds; general garden cleanup; hedge trimming; replanting japanese maples; lawn maintenance (edging, fertilizing, etc.); reconditioning raised planter beds.Jose was thoughtful and proactive with information about keeping our pets (dog, cats, free-ranging chickens) safe with the work and fertilizer used.

The bottom line: Jose Henriquez and his crew from JDH Garden Services provide high quality landscape services at a fair price.   They are conscientious and self-directed. My husband and I just purchased a home that has a relatively large (8400  sq ft) yard with mature landscaping, including several fruit trees.   The yard had been neglected for several months this past winter.   It needed a major cleanup that included trimming trees and large cacti as well as taking care of debris knocked down by storms.  A large shrub, with roots that were threatening to damage our living room windows, had to be dug out of the ground and hauled away.  We also needed a large, cemented-in metal pipe (formerly the base for an in-ground basketball system) cut off below ground level.  Finally, the grounds and lawn around the the removed bush and cut-off pipe had  to be repaired.  I found Jose & JDH based on positive reviews on both Angie's List and Yelp.  Jose got right back to me to discuss our original job.  After a positive first conversation, I checked references and we quickly made an appointment for him to see the job; he was courteous and easy to talk with.  He followed this up with a detailed written estimate.    Communication has worked very well using e-mail, which is particularly convenient for me.  Jose has responded promptly to my questions and requests for clarification. Jose's crew completed our first job on time and did a fine job.   Based on that experience, we contracted with Jose for regular maintenance of our property and they have been doing that ever since.  Our front and back yards look consistently great.   Given the size of the property and the number of trees and bushes we think their price is very reasonable.  I would not hesitate to recommend JDH Landscape Services, either for a 1-time cleanup or for regular maintenance.

I found Jose on Yelp based on his great reviews. I called him, he was able to come when was available a few days later. We agreed on the price and he came the next day to do the job. We had him trim and fertilize about 10 trees. They look great. He walked me around and showed me what he did. He also gave me advice on watering before he left. He takes pride and responsibility in his work. Our trees look great. More...

Found Jose through a Yelp search as my yard was getting ahead of me. He was prompt, understood what I needed, showed up when he said he would, and accurately explained the job to his workers. They did a wonderful job pruning, raking, edging, weeding, trimming, moving dirt, mowing, blowing and generally doing a big cleanup on my yard. I like that he used to work at Wegman's and knows plants, and that his service is not just "mow and blow". He knows gardening. Am planning on having him back in the spring to check the irrigation. Highly recommend the JDH Gardening crew! More...

We had them do an initial clean up of our yard.  Our house is on an 1/8 acre which had been neglected for two years prior to us moving in and it was just too much for us to handle.  They pulled out all of the weeds, timed the hedges/trees, pulled out the ivy which was consuming the garden shed, and removed two palm trees.  It took them only two days, was priced very reasonably and the yard looks great.

Several month later and I am still very happy with the work done by Jose and his JDH crew.

From Patrice in Redwood City     I love when Jose comes each week to do our landscaping and maintenance because it gets done so very well and Jose is wonderful about answering questions and doing little or big jobs in a very prompt manner.  His entire staff is most friendly and they work very hard.  Jose even goes out of his way to take very good care of my potted flowers when I am gone and answers all his phone calls and e-mails, too.  I would recommend Jose to anyone who wants quality outside care done for their home.JDH Garden Services is quality work.  You can trust Jose and be proud of the work he does.

Had JDH do a major clean up for a yard that had not been maintained for a long time.   He and his crew cut back large bushes, shrubs, and even pulled out weeds.  I was impressed by their quality of work and attention to detail, which was much, much better than other company's garden services that I had used previously.  Thank you, Jose!

I second all the praise given to Jose and his team! He is very professional in all aspects and we were very pleased with not only the quality of the work done but the business interaction, from soup to nuts, as they say. Jose is very knowledgeable, friendly and polite yet direct in discussing the issues at hand. He was on time, every time, and respectful of financial matters and time constraints. I found JDH via Yelp and decided to give him a call, based on all the glowing reviews.  My husband and I met with Jose and he openly listened to the issues at hand (a system-wide irrigation system issue) and offered his recommendations and action plan. His team came out and spent 2 days fixing and augmenting our irrigation system.  The work was done well and on time. After our review of the completed job, we had a couple of concerns, namely areas where we thought we needed to have more water spray. This wasn't Jose's fault. It was a matter of his team not knowing that we intended to do landscaping in a few areas that are currently completely barren (dirt). Jose came out again and surveyed the work that his team had done. In certain areas, he showed us why areas had sufficient water.  For the remaining areas, he had his guys come out again to make a couple of tweaks. He didn't take any of the remaining money we owed him until we were 100% satisifed with the job (50% had been given at the inception of work). I would definitely recommend Jose to anyone needing help with their yard/garden/landscaping needs.  If we hadn't already had a weekly yard maintenance arrangement in place, I would hire his team for that as well!

My backyard was a jungle this morning. I'm talking 4 foot weeds and a pond that I hadn't laid eyes on in at least 3 months! Now imagine my horror when Jose arrived with only one other guy with him. Anyway, it was done in the exact amount of time Jose said it would take. They even put a new pump in my pond and got it running again! My yard is in immaculate shape. Thank you, Jose!! More...

Jose and his team did an excellent job cleaning up our yard. They were very thorough and fully delivered on their promise. I will definitely use them again.

Jose and his crew did an AMAZING job my recent yard clean-up.   It was a two day effort and everything ran like a top.  Jose is a true professional who's first concern seemed to be customer satisfaction (a rare quality indeed). He was on time for our every meeting, agreeably modified the scope of work and seemed expertly  in control over every detail and situation that presented itself.  He's an extremely  nice guy who runs a quality operation and I thank YELP for turning me on to him. Give JDH a try if your looking for quality gardening services at extremely fair prices  from  one of the most professional crews you're likely to come across. More...

Jose and his crew did a great job on our 1 acre cleanup. They arrived on  time, worked hard throughout the day, and cleaned up a year of over-growth. They were careful to ask before major pruning and Jose checked in with us each day to make sure we were happy. This was a major cleanup job - over $1500 - and we feel they earned it. More...

Our yard had gotten so overgrown that we were getting maintenance service business cards dropped off in our mailbox... long overdue for a clean-up.  I interviewed three companies before selecting JDH for clean-up services.  The owner gave a very competitive bid.  He came early on the scheduled clean-up day, because it was predicted to rain in the afternoon.  When I came back from work, I was amazed at how beautiful my yard was--they weeded, mowed the lawns, trimmed everything.  I was very satisfied with their work, so I asked them to continue maintaining our yard.  I've been very happy working with JDH--the owner is very responsive on the phone and email and is always willing to work with me to accommodate my requests.

I just hired JDH to do a major clean-up on my yard. Jose, the owner, showed up on time for the estimate and his estimate was quite competitive. The day they were scheduled to come it was pouring and Jose called and re-scheduled. On the rescheduled day they showed up on time and did exactly what he and I had talked about. For $720 for the yard and $150 for my gutters, Jose and his men cleaned all the gutters, weeded and trimmed all the overgrown beds, restored my lawn so that it now looks like a lawn. They also removed a vine that was growing on the side of my house, and hauled everything away. I am very pleased with the results and have hired them to come back every other week. More...
