  • Melanie D.

I'm pleased with the quality of work.

I'm pleased with the new concrete stairway and the platform deck. Good work in rather cold weather. Recommend and I will rehire.

Sprinkler and Irrigation System Installation

Great Job and back up their work.

Omni did a great job for us. Had them install a 200 sq ft patio, and a sprinkler system. There were a few problems with the initial installation, but they immediately came out, got it fixed and took care of us. Would recommend.

So far am satisfied

Very professional and knows their stuff. Work not scheduled till later next month, will be able to report how well they do at completion. So far am satisfied with estimate, response time and follow up. Thanks!

Awesome Customer Service!

They installed a new fencephalitis for us - and we couldn't be happier! Not only were they attentive and speedy when it came to the bid, theh were defenitly in the ballpark (as for the price) AND they could start the job the next week! When had some issues with our gate not opening after a week or two (things settling) - and again, within a week, they were out there to remedy the situation. Awesome customer service! I would highly recommend using them!

Great Designer

Omni did my project late last year. It started out with calling a few contractors and meeting with them at my house. I wanted a lot done so I knew that whoever did it would have to know what they were doing. The designer that came out was very professional and quickly steered me in the right direction. he then brought back and awesome design of everything that we had talked about. This guy actually listened to me. Instead of coming back with a million dollars worth of work, he realized my budget and help me figure out what i could afford and still make it look nice. The guy that ran the crew spoke English and knew what he was doing. Everything came together like the designer had planned and I love the work they did. I definitely made the right choice by picking this company. I plan on doing a few more items as time goes on feel good about the relationship that i have started with them.

Thanks for all you do!

Thanks for all you do! The yard has been well used - including for our rehearsal dinner - lots of compliments.

Absolutely Beautiful

I am an extremely happy customer of Omni Landscaping and Sprinkler Services. My small back yard and front garden areas were in deplorable condition, with overgrown plants of all kinds and a rotting back porch. Douglas Carlile was the company representative who visited me. His knowledge of landscaping was instrumental in my selection of product, style, design, basically everything. Everyone on the team, who did all of the installation, was dedicated to the project, efficient, and extremely polite and considerate of our needs. I fully trusted them, because it was very obvious they knew what they were doing. The project was completed in the time estimated, and it is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!! I could not be happier with my new back yard and front garden area, and heartily recommend the services of Omni Landscaping to anyone fixing-up or completely re-doing their landscaping. They’re really great! -Judi Moss

Sprinklers are working Great!

The sprinklers are working GREAT! I have already recommended Omni to several people! Thanks Tim and Joe!

Complete Overhaul of Front Yard

We've used them for a complete overhaul of our front yard (including new water-saving sprinkler heads.) Ramon and his crew did a wonderful job, working 2 1/2 days just about non-stop. The yard now looks amazing with our grass turning green again, new ice plants, mulch, and rocks. A few weeks in and there is grass coming up through the mulch. Not sure if that is because a better tarp needs to be used below the mulch or if something else is going on. David said he will have his crew come out and look. Overall, very happy with the result.

Omni Did A Wonderful job

We had a great experience with Omni. We worked with Doug for our quote and to collaborate on ideas for our yard. He always followed up and was very honest, helpful and spent time answering all of our questions. The crew was very professional, timely and did a great job. We would definitely use Omni again.

Concrete Driveway Installation

I had a great initial bid from Doug, which led me to use Omni. However, the experience was less than ideal. The driveway project was supposed to be 915 sq feet for $6, 500, 14 feet wide and 65 feet long. I was impressed with the bid and with Doug, so I paid 100% up front. That was a mistake... I came home one day to find the work already started. The frame for the driveway was only 13 feet wide and about 60 feet long, more than 100 sq feet less than what I paid for. I called Doug a few times but couldn't get in touch with him. I wanted 14 feet wide not 13 and I wanted the driveway to extend farther into my backyard to match my existing concrete back patio. Before I knew it, the Concrete had been poured and set to the wrong dimensions and it was too late. Doug apologized and said there were multiple mix-ups, that the workers just made a mistake with the dimensions and that he made a mistake on the bid. He came over and he apologized again and we discussed ideas to make up for the mistake and to get my money's worth. We discussed paving stones along the side of the driveway and a short paving stone walk way from the driveway to the front porch. I wanted to be emailed a short design summary with a few options of pavers from which to pick, but that never happened. The pavers were installed and look good, but after all the problems, I would have appreciated to be able to chose from a few options or at least see a design plan. Finally, when they came back to do the pavers, they cleaned up the concrete that was scattered and hardened in the back yard, but they left a large pile of big stones that are actually in my neighbors drive way. In the end, after more than a month of waiting, the project is finished. Positives: Doug was very friendly and gave a very good detailed bid. The finished product looks good. They made mistakes but tried to correct them. The driveway looks good. Negatives: Communication was the cause of much of the problems, from the bid errors, to the workers, not answering or responding to phone calls, not receiving timely updates or emails with project information. Messes after the project. Not being included in design decisions. Nobody told us when work was starting or stopping, when workers would be there. Nobody informed us when it would be safe to drive on the driveway. If I could, I would give Omni 2.5 stars out of 5 for being equally good as they were bad. Perhaps driveways and concrete work are not their strong point.
