4.5 stars really - just a few cosmetic issues with the stamping in the concrete and the Ipe finishes that were not perfect. We would definitely work with BASL again.
Danny and his team turned our amateur sketch into our dream backyard. This was a big project including a raised patio, outdoor kitchen with LP gas grill and side burner, water feature, raised planters, and feature wall with Brazilian hardwood (Ipe). Functional features include drip irrigation, electrical outlets throughout yard, outdoor audio wiring, low voltage lighting, and gas lines for barbeque and fire features.
Danny is one of the most honest and hard working guys you will meet. At every juncture of the project he would check in to ensure that he was able to do the job exactly as we wanted. The structural quality of the outdoor kitchen and all underground wiring and plumbing is high.
There was some inconsistency in the stamped pattern of the concrete and some of the Ipe fine work is a little rough but you would not notice it if you didn't look hard. Overall we are pleased with the job.
We recently moved into a new home in the East Bay area and wanted to make sure our landscaping was sustainable and drought-resistant. After doing some research, we decided to go with Bay Area Sustainable Landscaping. We couldn't be happier with our decision!
From the very beginning, Danny was great to work with. He listened to our ideas and came up with a design that we loved. The whole process was very efficient and the work was completed on time and on budget.
Our new patio and garden areas are exactly what we wanted, and we know that they'll be able to withstand anything the California weather throws at them. Thank you, Bay Area Sustainable Landscaping!
We were in dire need of a landscaping overhaul and Bay Area Sustainable Landscaping came highly recommended. We decided to go ahead with a consultation and we're so glad we did!
Danny quickly identified the issues with our existing garden and came up with some great options for us to consider. We were really impressed with her vision and his understanding of our budget constraints.
The work carried out by Danny and her team of expert stone masons was top notch. They completely transformed our garden and made it safe and beautiful again. We're so happy we chose Bay Area Sustainable Landscaping!
I am so happy I decided to go with Bay Area Sustainable Landscaping for my landscaping needs. They did an amazing job on my property and I couldn't be happier. The whole process was very smooth and professional. From the initial consultation to the final walk-through, they were great to work with.

We contacted Bay Area Sustainable Landscaping (BAYSL) for a quote on our outdoor lighting and retaining wall project. We were impressed with their honesty and commitment to quality, so we decided to go with them. They definitely met all of our expectations, even though we missed our time frame by a few days. The lighting looks great and the retaining wall is solid. We're very happy with the results!
Overall, we were extremely pleased with Bay Area Sustainable Landscaping. They were honest, professional, and hardworking. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for quality landscaping services.
Danny did a great job with our complete landscaping remodel. Along the way he suggested many good ideas and was generally very flexible. Danny is also very experienced so his advice during the project was invaluable.
Danny is an excellent talented landscape architect and paving specialist.
He did our our backyard and laid california pavers, porcelain pavers for a small area and also did the landscaping and lighting on a slope with shifting loose soil.
He did a great job with a price that is no way comparable to any of the other folks who gave us a quote.
works with your budget
It would be preferrable to have your own vision of what you want before approaching danny, he is a skilled implementer.
Danny and his team are a GREAT contractor. They were able to do a lot of good things. They were the best price for what we wanted, they started within a week, were done in about a week, and never complained about anything - not even once.
Those are good things, but why was Danny great? When the week of work was almost up and after a delay on concrete that never slowed them down. They showed up, ready to go, on Saturday and got the job done.
What makes them truly GREAT though? A small bit was done wrong, and he came the next day to look at it, and fixed it super quickly without even a concern on complaint. We all know good contractors that control the job and finish strong, but what makes GREAT ones is how they handle things that are unexpected or go wrong. Just like Danny did.
I can only recommend Bay Area Sustainable Landscaping for their efficient and reliable service. We needed to install a French Drainage to help with water coming from an elevated area of our garden.
The installation was complete within the day and all was executed to our full satisfaction.
First of all, I'm sorry that I write this review after the work was done a half year ago, but it means Danny and his team's work is still good after half year.
Thank you so much that Danny keeps his promise to finish it before the deadline (even faster by finishing in 14 days). I quote over 15 landscaping company, and BASL are 1 of the 2 best price in all estimates. I finally choose to go with Danny BASL because he always say customer happy is the most important, and his professional idea make me feel confidence on his works.
Danny knows his plan and how many works to be done everyday. He would bring in different workers / team to do the work which they are good at. And he respected my idea and opinion, he would ask me the details before starting the work. At the beginning, I still worried he would cut the corner, but he didn't. He finished the whole job with professional manner. He even went extra, for example, he bought me a new downspout because mine got blow away. This is not in our contract, but he still help me out.
Danny always think ahead for the work, he think about how to keep it beautiful and last longer. For example, the dirt level of a fence inside is higher than the dirt level of the fence outside (a big step). So, it comes up a problem if he don't build a block to stop the dirt wash away from inside, it will cause problem in few years. Therefore, he pour a lot cement to fill up the 10" deep gap to block the dirt wash away.
Danny's team did the fence better than my previous PL fence company. Board and board covered each other more, it means it won't show up a gap after the wood dry out; therefore, more privacy. The fence which installed by previous company has gaps in some area after dry out, and people can see through.
Danny can do everything! He not only install concrete and fence, but also artificial lawn and irrigation system. We agree to used the left over artificial grass to cover the gap in between fence and concrete rather than using rocks. I also use the artificial grass for mats. It turns out beautifully.
My front and back yard were used to be messy, but now it was clean and tidy. I love it a lot!! And my children can have more space to play now. We are all happy with Danny's BASL work. Thank you so much for finishing it by SIP, even thought we have to stay at home now, but we can play around and relax in our beautiful backyard. 🙂
Thank you Danny and your team!
