Testimonials- Mitchell Landscapes

We are grateful for the kind words our clients and associates have shared with us…

Could Not Have Been Happier with Results

“We rebuilt our Fountaingrove home after losing it in the 2017 Tubbs fire and needed to fully landscape our front and back yard. Owen and his company, Mitchell Landscapes, were highly recommended by the landscape design company we worked with.

We obtained other bids, but ultimately selected Owen because of how personable, professional, and knowledgeable he was. We couldn’t have been happier with the end result.

The ten-week project included a concrete patio, retaining walls and steps, irrigation, drainage, lighting, fencing, pergola assembly, gas and electrical lines, plants, ground cover (gravel and mulch), and fire table and hot tub installation. Owen’s crew was skilled, friendly and hard-working. His foremen Al and Nestor were amazing to work with and did an outstanding job leading the project.

Owen was closely involved every step of the way. He provided numerous suggestions that either weren’t in the original plan from the landscape design company or were an improvement to the original plan. This was one of the biggest reasons we’re glad we worked with Mitchell Landscapes – Owen’s combination of strong design and practical sense resulted in a landscape that far surpassed the original plan. Owen was also honest, transparent, and fully committed throughout the project. Even after our project was completed, Owen and his crew came back several times to check plants and irrigation, as well as to unload and carry a 600 lb fire table into our backyard.

After the outstanding experience we had working with Mitchell Landscapes, we will definitely use them for all of our future landscaping projects.”

Great Eye for Design and Attention to Detail

Hit the Jackpot when Landscape Architect Introduced Us

“Wow, did I ever hit the jackpot when my landscape architect introduced me to Owen Mitchell, owner of Mitchell Landscapes.

First off, Owen is a very personable guy with immense knowledge of all things landscaping — not just trees, shrubs, and irrigation, but installing gas lines, pouring concrete, laying pavers, creative pathways and lighting and fountains — and so much more.

I would say he has a long relationship with all the best suppliers in the county. Beyond that, he has a multi-talented crew of guys working for him. They were all totally customer oriented and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. Without being asked, they took care of the smaller details that make such a difference.

Owen is also a great businessman, staying up to date on insurance, permits, codes, etc. He takes good care of his employees. They get safety training and wear masks and have hand sanitizer at the ready, so important in this current environment. I wholeheartedly recommend Mitchell Landscaping.”

Professionalism, Customer Service, Advocacy and Great Design Decisions

“My husband and I had the pleasure to work with Owen Mitchell on our landscaping project. Owen brought such professionalism, customer service, advocacy and great design decisions to our project. We are thrilled with the outcome; it has absolutely transformed our yard and the entire look and feel of our house.

We really appreciated his attention to detail, his amazing crew who were excellent and his daily check-ins on the project. He was very focused on customer service—both in terms of quality of the work and the timeline. His crew kept the job site as clean as possible and they seemed to communicate well with him and each other. We would recommend Owen Mitchell for any landscaping project without reservation.”

Mitchell Stood Out from the Other Firms

“Back in July of 2014, we had plans drawn up by a landscape architect which fitted our vision of how we wanted our back yard to look. We went on the prowl to find the right person to implement our vision. Now we had to research and interview some landscapers to make it all happen. We interviewed a number of people and provided them with a preliminary drawing to use when we did our interviews. Right out the gate, Owen really stood out from the group.

Not only did he arrive right on time (versus everyone else arriving late to the meetings), and even better, he was prepared.  It was clear he did his homework and had looked at the drawings with a learned eye (something none of the others did). We talked at length about his process. And because he did his homework, he was able to add some useful insights to our vision. Most importantly, he really grasped what we were trying to accomplish and how he was going to make it happen. He put a proposal together, and we signed off, thankful to have someone that we really trusted to do the job right.

He got the project underway later in 2015, and he and his crew went to work. The crew were all respectful and worked tirelessly to make it happen.  As is normal in these kinds of projects, there were changes and adjustments that were made along the way. The best part of this was Owen’s keen eye for making changes that were economical while improving on the vision as originally laid out.

All-in-all, the result is a back yard that is great to behold and is a wonderful extension of our home. We appreciated how well he did the back yard so much, that we also had him redo our front yard as well. We feel like we have a front and back yard that has a storybook look to it and is a peaceful extension of our home. Thank you Owen!”

No Other Contractor has Better Communication Skills and Rapport with Customers

“I have been working with landscape contractors for 35 years. Once I started working with Owen of Mitchell Landscapes, I never worked with another. I know of no other contractor who has better communication skills and rapport with his customers.

Owen clearly explains what to expect and follows through with it. In my experience there is no other contractor who is as flexible and creative in his problem solving. His ability and willingness to research alternatives when changes are requested goes beyond expectations.

Owen takes as much  time as necessary to listen to the concerns (and compliments) of his clients. It is a joy working with Owen. I am never disappointed.”
