5.0 Rosie P. Fremont, CA

Above the Cut did an amazing job turning our old lawn into a beautiful drought tolerant garden. The work included a retaining wall, drip system, pathways with stepping stones, ground granite area and plants, tree and rocks. Looked absolutely wonderful. Very well done.

5.0 Barbara M. San Jose, CA

Claudia was quick to the point and offer the best quote. The job was well done in only one day. Will definitely consider them for future projects.

5.0 Nicolas C. San Jose, CA

Claudia and her team were truly above the cut! They showed up on time, everyday, since the start of our project and did excellent, detailed work. We had a whole new walkway, garden lights, turf, and a tree planted. All of which was done very well. I wouldn't hesitate to hire them again for future projects!

5.0 Kelly W. Campbell, CA

Claudia and her team were amazing. She came out to view my space and walk through intricate details of what they could do and how that would impact the cost. We had a small space but her team was able to complete the project in one day (staying later into the evening to complete). They were professional and did a great job of cleaning up when they left. Would highly recommend!

5.0 Bonnie E. San Jose, CA

Claudia was easy to work with and brought the ideas to reality. I highly recommend.

5.0 Deanna G. Cupertino, CA

Claudia was absolutely wonderful to work with. She is a great communicator and good listener as well. She came up with excellent ideas to increase the value of the the front, back, side yards of our home and still keep within our budget. We hired her to do landscaping and she ended up also doing quite a bit of concrete work as well. She and her crew got the job done quickly and cleaned up so nicely. She'll definitely be our "go to" for landscaping and future projects! We are very happy to recommend her, you won't be disappointed!

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
