Since our family does not get along so well, we needed a landscaper skilled not only in his trade but also in working with people. Fortunately we discovered Michael Martinez of Black Diamond. He quickly produced a plan consistent with our aesthetic hopes and budgetary constraints and then patiently helped us remove junk that was blocking the start of the project. Once we got underway, when disagreements arose, he would take time to visit us and clarify what was feasible. From the getgo, Michael and his crew, led by Irving, were committed not to take sides but to produce a beautiful yard that would please all of us. And they succeeded! More...

Black Diamond did an amazing job replacing our cracked cement porch with beautiful pavers. They also gave us new stairs, retaining wall and did a great job on landscaping. Edgar led the construction/ landscaping team. He was easy to work with and did an excellent job. He even came back a couple months later when a couple of the plants failed to transplant. Carol was our designer and point person. She came to our house throughout the process and worked with us to get exactly what we wanted. The final cost came in very close to the original estimate. I hihgly recommend them. More...

Great job! This review is a little late (work done in Nov 2019). Richard, our designer, was easy to work with as well as at our house at least everyday; job start was on-schedule and finished on-time.  Victor, our foreman, and his crew were professional and neat. We paved our entire backyard and added a few extra bits as they were paving.  Richard picked an amazing color for the pavers and the yard looks inviting and warm. Great experience, great customer service and I would highly recommend them. More...

Black Diamond's designer Bruce Pressman along with Juan Baez and his crew of installers did an excellent job on our backyard pavers and landscaping.   We had heard of the high-quality of Black Diamond and are very pleased with the results. They were flexible with the timing as I had some scheduling conflicts that required me to push out the installation. Bruce was easy to work with on the design and allowed last minute changes.  Juan and crew were efficient and very knowledgeable of their craft.I highly recommend Black Diamond Paver Stones & Landscaping.

We recently completed a backyard renovation with pavers. Jim Wright was a wonderful project manager to work with. He was very accommodating and responsive, and he steered us in the right direction throughout the whole process. Jim's knowledge, insights, and experience gave us a great design. The crew completed their work in just a week - we thought it would take two or more. The crew was very responsible and the work area was cleaned up and handed off well. At the end of it, we have a beautifully paved backyard. We are looking forward to working with Jim Wright again very soon. More...

First of all I would like to thank Bruce Pressman     the Senior Project Design Specialist who made the whole process very smoothly and successfully. We had the wood deck in our back patio of the town house for many years, it gave us a lot of headaches for its frequent needs for repair. It's hard for us to think about redoing the back patio because of the very tedious work with HOA. Our HOA has very strict rules on Architecture Change Request. Not only they ask for very detailed job description to follow their rules but also they have special request for the contractor's liability insurance. Fortunately I found Bruce who made the impossible mission possible. He is so easy to communicate and always replied to my request in a timely manner. Because of him, our back patio was replaced with very nicely designed paver stones and also it passed the HOA inspection on the first visit. More importantly Black Diamond Paver Stones Inc offers long time warranty which gives me peace of mind! More...

Black Diamond recently finished our backyard project.  We were looking to eliminate mud and places for our dog to dig in the rainy months.   I found them on Yelp and Steve Turner (designer) came to our house and came up with a design within our budget and more functional and attractive than we had envisioned. Steve is very professional and easy to work with and made sure we were happy with the project the entire way through, he knew we had a budget and completed part of the demo and finish work himself and delivered some recycled blocks to shore up a retaining wall that was not within the initial scope of the project.  Once the crew was available the project moved quickly and was completed ahead of the estimated finish time (Demo foreman Flavio and Installed by Augustin's crew - very professional). We were very impressed with the cleanliness throughout the entire project.  From beginning to end we felt Steve wanted to ensure we were happy with the process, progress and finished project.  We love our new yard!!

We highly recommend Black Diamond.From the beginning, they were very professional and pleasure to work with. We replaced our front yard with paved stones, drought tolerant landscaping, and lighting. Thea French was our designer and her high energy and love for her profession really sold us on contracting with them. Since we didn't have a clear idea of what we wanted, she gave us lots of suggestions and guided us through the whole process. It was a bit overwhelming at first, but Thea walked us through patiently and was very informative. Once we signed the contract, the work started immediately. Thea, Columba, and Raymundo, like a great team that they are, scheduled and coordinated the work very well. Throughout the project, Thea came by often to check the progress and informed us on what to expect in the next phase of the project.Raymundo and his paving team are artists. The painstaking attention to detail given for each cut of stones to carefully laying them perfectly in their spot was amazing to watch! Once the stones were paved, Thea shined even more. She chose great assortment of plants that are drought tolerant and look beautiful together. Can't wait for them to grow and fill out!It has been couple months since the project finished, and Thea still checks in to ask how the plants are doing. She already came by once to replace couple plants that weren't too happy with their shady plot. All in all, it was a pleasure to work with Black Diamond and we would absolutely recommend them.

We had a pretty significant backyard overhaul that we've been meaning to do for years and finally went forward with it.  Black Diamond (BD) had some of the most consistent highly rated reviews and customer experiences that caught our eye.  Right from the initial meeting and quotation stages, everyone was laid out clearly and on point.  Julie really helped make the process easy, and it didn't take long for us to make a decision to move forward.Once we locked our contract in, we had a scheduled start date in mind but it was contingent on other things to get done by other contractors.  BD was great in working with us on our scheduling and made things flexible and had clear lines of communication.The start date came, Julie had Juan Aguilar and his crew start promptly and man did they work hard and efficiently.  Everyone in Juan's crew, and Juan himself were extremely attentive and respectful to our property and made it a point to keep things not-related to the project in the exact same (if not better) condition that they saw it in.The project was slated to take anywhere from 2-3 weeks, they finished it in ten days w/o zero complications.  Anything that needed to be touched up or was out of place was extremely minor and was fixed promptly.There was a little mixup with some of the numbers at one point, however Julie was extremely patient in reviewing everything and getting it all corrected literally overnight.  BD really is an example of how a company should be ran.  Not every company is perfect, and when issues arise, they don't hide from it, they address and fix it promptly and with respect.This is one of the better experiences I've had with a contracting company.  Their communication, efficiency, and professionalism is top notch.  I'm glad we went with them, and would highly recommend them for your landscaping needs.

The finished product looks fantastic. The job involved replacing front yard concrete drive way & walkway with pavers, redoing tiles on front porch + new step, and paving a section of the backyard with a sitting wall. Cost was reasonable. Rob, the project manager, offered excellent design help, was responsive, and methodical. Particularly impressed with Rafa & Geronimo, the tile guys. There were delays in completion, weekend make up work, multiple fixes to turf/sprinkler system, and a less than stellar clean up. But they got it right at the end. And summer being the busiest time for landscaping, I was willing to cut some slack. Overall a very happy customer. More...

Black Diamond did a fantastic job on my pavers. They look beautiful and really do a lot to improve the look of my yard. The project was not only aesthetic, however, the need was created by a drainage problem in my yard that created a flood in the low area of my yard every time we have a heavy rain. David Weissenberg designed a drainage system under the pavers to alleviate this problem. They also pit in stepping stones where the redwood tree roots made putting in pavers difficult. The stones look really nice and Juan Lopez, the project manager made sure they are perfectly level with the pavers. He put in pipes under the pavers in case I want lighting or have some water pipe issues in the future. He re-hung my gate so it was even better than it had been before they took it down for the pavers. The project cost was reasonable in comparison with other bids I obtained beforehand. Travis Thorson, the project coordinator was easy to work with and everyone was very nice. I am posting some photos of my beautiful project. The small stones were added by my personal gardener after the project was completed. One of the reasons I decided to go with Black diamond was their long warranty period. I doubt I'll have to use it but it does give me peace of mind. More...

Lacy and her team did an incredible job of interpreting a very rough hand written diagram that I provided her with the vision and dream we had for our new backyard. It is a more intimate yard that includes a pergola, small water feature, storage building and landscape that suits this smaller space. Lacy took the time to listen to our desires and wishes for this space including thoughts about hardscape, barbecue area, plants and irrigation. She really listened to what we wanted the end product to look like and at the end of the day she provided us with exactly what we were looking for.
