Working with San Antonio Outdoor Living was a great experience from the initial brainstorming sessions through the completion of the project. They were very professional and kept us up to date throughout the process. I appreciate their vision for our outdoor space. Robert was able to take our... rough ideas and turn them into a beautiful backyard oasis. The end result exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend working with them.read more
Two years ago my wife and I moved into a new (for us) house in Shavano Park. The house was in pretty good shape but the yard was a disaster, especially the back yard, which was pretty much a mud bog populated with a variety of weeks and some very sad red tips which all have blight and are dying.... Before we found Robert and San Antonio Outdoor Living we hired two other landscape contractors (I'll spare them the embarrassment of naming them here) and spent several thousand dollars (twice) for shoddy, unprofessional work. Enter SAOL. Robert and crew were prompt, professional, knowledgable and efficient. He recommended putting in artificial turf instead of doing (yet another) round of sod, which just didn't do well in our back yard. I was slightly skeptical at first, wondering if it was going to look like a cheesy elementary school playground. But I have to honestly say that if you did not know better there's no way you would be able to tell that it's not real grass. Plus, no mowing, no trimming, no watering. It's fabulous. In addition they planted some really nice vines (16 of them to be precise) around the perimeter which will grow up into the dead trees, using them as natural trellises, and fill in the empty space where leaves once lived. The gravel border along the perimeter makes the space feel larger and lighter and the dogs absolutely love their new running track! (They really love the artificial grass, too. They sleep on it in the afternoon.)In my experience I've realized that it's almost impossible to find someone in this profession (or MOST professions) who:A) Knows what the hell they're doing (Robert was extremely knowledgable and had suggestions for our yard and showed pictures of previous work they'd done to help me visualize what he was proposing)B) Answers their phone. At all. (Robert almost always answered the first time I called and if not he responded quickly to my voicemail)C) Shows up when they say they will (Robert and his crew actually showed up to start work AHEAD of schedule)D) Do a good job (These guys did a GREAT job)Don't call 10 different landscape companies like I did. Don't waste thousands of dollars redoing the same project like I did. Just call San Antonio Outdoor Living. You'll be glad you did.read more
Robert and his team did a fantastic job remodeling our entire backyard. The job included new sod, a wide variety of plants, sprinkler system expansion, mulch, lights and more. They showed up on time and we are pleased with the results.
We had a great experience using San Antonio Outdoor Living for our back yard landscaping after our pool was built. Robert was punctual with our meeting time and day. We shared with Robert on what was important to us and he made great recommendations. He took the time to explain and show what type... of landscaping plants, trees and rocks would fit what we were looking for. He also took care of resetting our irrigation/sprinklers along with building a shed to to cover our pool equipment. His crew worked as a GREAT TEAM during the transformation. We strongly feel that we received AWARD WINNING SERVICE.read more
I had a really great experience with Robert and his crew. They gave me a really reasonable quote and started the work the next day. He explained the process and finished that same day. Now I have a beautiful yard with green grass and a working sprinkler system. I would really recommend this company... for you landscaping needs.read more
Robert and his team have provided us an outdoor living area that is warm and inviting. He listened to us well. It is beautiful! We are enjoying our time by the fireplace and look forward to making many more great family memories.
Robert has a great eye for design in the outdoor space. His patios have a solid construction and are a beautiful sight in the backyard. He will add as many options as you want so you can have the patio of your dreams. I recommend Robert for any outdoor installations.
