5.0 Barbara T. San Jose, CA

I was so pleased with the way the job was performed in a very timely manner. Claudia and Tina are a great team and have very hard workers and very good work ethics. The entire job flowed perfectly. Scheduling is so important and they are experts. I can’t say enough about how happy I am with my front yard now.

These folks were amazing, did a fabulous job!

5.0 Jean C. San Jose, CA

I have used Claudia and "above the cut: for years. They have done extensive landscaping for my front yard as well as replaced my entire fence. Recently Claudia and her crew installed astro turf in my backyard. There is a problem with one section and I will say my overall satisfaction with her team is excellent. She is expensive but well worth it. My only complaint is it is difficult for her to return to the site if there is a problem. Usually she fixes it but getting her to return is a HUGE ISSUE and frustrating.

5.0 Kacy W. San Jose, CA

Above the Cut was excellent. The crews worked efficiently and very hard. Our 900 sq. ft. grass area was replaced with artificial turf in only 5 days. The entire experience was beyond our expectations. The new lawn looks amazing.

5.0 Robin F. San Jose, CA

I was very impressed with the professionalism of Claudia and her team. Claudia made suggestions, and was flexible and good-natured about working with a very strict mobile home park management. Claudia texted me photos of plants, and went out of her way to find an out-of-stock item. They were on time, responsive, kept to schedule, and cleaned up after each day.

4.0 Debora C. Fremont, CA

The project was managed very well. Claudia was flawless in timing of materials. She allowed me to visit the nursery to pick out myself the trees & plants. Her team of landscapers were so amazing. I would like to call out Havi specifically. He was amazing and was the key to the final results of my backyard which I love. Thank You Again.

5.0 Terrence L. San Jose, CA

Claudia came out right away to estimate the project. I tried to get a comparison estimate from big store but they took too long to call back. i feel I got a great value for what Claudia and her crew did. My neighbors are happy to see the synthetic lawn instead of weeds and dirt. Many great comments and requests for business cards

5.0 Han M. Cupertino, CA

Above the cut recently did our front yard and backyard landscaping, including paver patio and walkways, installing irrigation system and sod, and plants. From estimation to completion, their service is fantastic. Claudia know what she is doing and very easy to communicate with and flexible when we would like to make some adjustments. The crew worked hard and they always checked with me to make sure the results are what I wanted. The quality of the work is excellent and the crew cleaned all the trash when they finished. I highly recommend Above the Cut to future clients.

5.0 Edward B. San Jose, CA

My backyard was hard packed clay that even weeds had trouble growing in. Within two days they transformed it into a lush and green lawn with a new sprinkling system. I got bids from four companies and Above The Cut Landscaping's rates were very competitive and fair. I'm pleased with their work and much more importantly, my wife is happy!
