We are extremely pleased with the landscaping project completed in our backyard. [redacted] is highly professional, his workers [redacted] and [redacted] arrived on time every day, worked extremely hard moving gravel and doing beautiful rock work for our wall and brick work for our patio. [redacted] visited the site daily to make sure we were pleased with the progress and graciously made changes when asked. We would highly recommend [redacted]'s Waterfalls and Landscaping.

I am new to Arizona and to [redacted]. When I moved in, I had a back yard full of gravel. I hired someone to remove the gravel (1st step), move on to grading and relandscaping the back yard. He flaked out on me and I was referred to Rico's. I called him to come out and give me an estimate, which he did. It was a bit higher than the other person's so I figured with his creditentials, he would be a good choice. I planted grass from seed as I could not afford sod and [redacted] kept telling me I would be lucky to get 70% coverage. He was surprised I got more coverage than that. However, what he did not tell me was his job stopped with seeding the lawn. It would be extra to reseed areas that needed it and when I asked him to do the first mowing, he was going to do it with a weed wacker. Not at all acceptable. I had purchased some bare root roses which he planted, improperly, even planting two that were obviously dead. He installed a (I don't know what it is called) but it supplies water to the irrigation system, and it recently burst. As we had already had a falling out, I didn't call him to repair it. His warranty goes for a year on things he did from start to finish, but what good is his warranty if his work was done improperly to begin with. I paid him very good money and one of the things he was to do was remove all the gravel and the plastic beneath it. When I pulled up one of the roses because I knew it had been planted improperly, I discovered, he had planted it over a large tree root and over plastic which had not been removed and it was dead. I have been advised by two large landscaping companies in this area that the grading he did of the lawn was not done properly, that he used too many sprinklers and there is so much overlapping that several of the sprinklers will have to be capped off; he didn't stake trees, even though he was supposed to and with no supervision at all, he had his inexperienced son put down mulch which was done so improperly that had I not checked it, I would have lost about 5-6 plants as the mulch was placed against the stems of the bushes. He didn't make cones for the rose roots, just plopped the plants into the ground and when the plumber who put in an outside valve bibb for me, asked him if he, [redacted], wanted him, the plumber to put in the valve for the sprinkler system, [redacted] said he would do it.
I would not recommend him, as he is very expensive and his prices do not comport with the quality of his work. He kept telling me because I had been had so many times in the last few months, he was "going to take care of me." He did some work for which he told me he would not charge me and 2 weeks later asked me when he was getting paid.

Review: In February, 2015, I hired Rico's Waterfalls & landscaping Inc. to do landscaping for me, including the installation of a sprinkler system. The work was not done in a workmanlike manner as follows He installed a 5 valve system and piped it into the house instead of into the water main at the street. Valves 2 and 3 do not have enough pressure; valve 4 doesn't work; there is no backflow. I am told there should not be more than 4 sprinklers per line; I have 5. And, there is bad sprinkler placement. The sprinklers are not working or are working intermittently. My lawn is dying due to lack of water and my plants are suffering from the same problem.Desired Settlement: I have contacted Rico's Waterfalls & landscaping Inc and left a message requesting he return and fix the problem; he has ignored my request. Either I want a refund of a substantial portion of what I paid him for this job, or I want him to come back and fix it properly, which would include running the sprinkler lines from the proper water source; fixing the valves, putting in a backflow, etc., etc.

We are extremely pleased with the landscaping project completed in our backyard.
