I recently had John’s Lawn & Garden work on my landscaping, irrigation, paver, and fence project in La Mesa, I can't praise them enough! From start to finish, they were professional, courteous, and attentive to my needs. They listened carefully to my ideas and preferences, and their expertise and creativity truly shone through in the final results. The landscaping is gorgeous, the irrigation system works flawlessly, and the pavers and fence add a beautiful finishing touch to my outdoor space.

John did an amazing job revitalizing our yard and garden after we moved into a house with some unique landscaping. He was super friendly and easy to work with and was even able to fit us in to his schedule with short notice. Definitely recommend his services!

My irrigation system was in shambles. I tried changing out solenoids and sprinkler heads- but I really just needed a professional to take a look. That’s where John’s Lawn & Garden comes in. John’s kind and hard working demeanor in combination with his years experience makes for the perfect skill set. He diagnosed my problem as a glitchy control box that wasn’t consistently triggering the zone valves. So he installed a new controller and re-programmed the zone times. He then re-routed all the hillside sprinklers with an efficient drip system. He also saved me money by not recommending I redo the lawn sprinklers completely, just a few minor adjustments there. Now my irrigation is up and running better than it has in years and actually better than when it was first installed. I highly recommend John for your yard project. If you want it done correctly without being soaked for unnecessary costs - he’s your guy. Did I mention he’s personable and easy to work with? There’s that too.
