LOVE LOVE LOVE the work Encore builders did for our home! My backyard has a hillside that was a total eyesore. The constant rains caused a muddy mess and I decided it was about time for a change. My coworker recommended Oz over at Encore Builders. She was super happy with the company as they did some artificial turf for their home. I called them up and Brandon and Oz came a few days later to quote me. They arrived on time (they gave me an arrival window) and I could instantly see why they had been recommended. They are knowledgeable and I never felt they were pushy. They suggested I do something called a terraced garden where they would add drip irrigation. Now I know Im a homeowner but this was all foreign language to me. They took their time to explain everything and show me photos of similar projects theyâ ve done. The drip irrigation system would slowly water the plants from the soil itself and is apparently much more efficient than sprinklers (as long as it didnâ t require me to water them I was in). They would create the terraced effect by adding cement bricks (you can see in the photos). They said the job would take 1 - 2 days and they quoted me on the spot. I used Yelp and found another local company just to do my due diligence( I wonâ t name names) but they quoted me FOUR TIMES THE PRICE - not two not three but four. Totally ridiculous, they also sent out a super young kid who didnâ t even know what he was talking about and never offered the high tech options Oz and Brandon suggested. It was a done deal. I called Brandon and OZ and within a week the job was done. We even ended up adding some low voltage lights because I was so happy with how everything was coming together I wanted it to be well lit. Im really really happy and now that the weather is nice I can sit outside and look at the pretty plants instead of staring at a brown hillside - thanks guys!!!!

Nothing but good things to say about Encore Builders! My home has been passed down to me from my grandparents and I have always been hesitant to do any work. I like the look and layout of the home but the front yard needed some TLC. I have a large tree which I love and wanted to find a way to work around it. Encore Builders specializes in artificial grass but when I told Brandon and Oz that I preferred a different option they suggested river rocks. We were able to use different colors to create a little walkway/ path and itâ s so charming!!! It is exactly what I wanted and totally fits the feel of the house. As far as everything else - Brandon and Oz and the whole team are spectacular. The crew arrived on time and were very respectful. We had no issues. The pricing was well within my budget and I didnâ t even get quoted by other companies because in my opinion it didnâ t even matter; I Had decided I was going to move forward with Brandon and Oz due to their top tier customer service. I instantly felt they were trustworthy and their reviews put me at ease. I checked both Yelp and Google reviews and it was clear that their customers love them just as much as I do.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Encore Builders to upgrade the front yard of my hillside home, and I couldn't be happier with the results! Brandon and OZ are fabulous people who very obviously know what they are doing. The team at Encore Builders carefully evaluated the soil conditions, selecting the perfect type and color of mulch to complement the natural surroundings. Now I never even knew what mulch is but the guys explained every step of the process. they explained that mulch would keep the plants we installed hydrated even during the hot LA summers. Mulch has temperature regulating properties that would protect the roots and enrich the soil promoting growth. Ummm where has mulch been my entire life???? Speaking of plants, Encore Builders went above and beyond in helping me choose the right ones. I wanted it mostly green but just a tiny pop of color. They took the time to understand my preferences, as well as the specific sunlight and soil requirements of each plant species. I think that we ended up picking out is a gorgeous blend of foliage that accents the contours of my property. Moreover, the team at Encore Builders meticulously positioned each plant, taking into account factors such as spacing and growth potential to create a balanced and visually appealing landscape. Their commitment to quality craftsmanship was evident in every detail, from the placement of individual plants to the strategic arrangement of shrubs and flowers to create depth and texture. As a result of Encore Builders' expertise and dedication, my front yard has been transformed. The vibrant colors of the plants, combined with the rich texture of the mulch, have breathed new life into my home. I wholeheartedly recommend their services to anyone seeking to enhance their outdoor space. Thank you, Encore Builders!!! Brandon Oz and the whole time - you guys are amazing!!

I recently worked with Encore Builders on a front yard project, and I must say they delivered. Oz and Brandon were there every step of they way . My front yard is on a hillside and the driveway is kind of steep. The surrounding grass was looking sad and we wanted something a little more convenient and comfortable. I knew I wanted steps but I had no idea how it would look and fit the space. One of the most impressive aspects of working with Encore Builders was their use of a 3D designer to bring our vision to life. I am a little old fashioned and quite a stranger to all these technological advances but Oz suggested we work with a 3D designer to create draw up some imaging. They sent over their lovely designer who instantly pulled out her laptop and showed us some similar projects. I already liked what I was seeing. She recommended artificial grass and diagonal steps. The 3D imaging looked great and by then I was pretty set on getting the project rolling. I selected the grass type with Oz and asked them to start as soon as possible. Within a few days we were able to get the ball rolling and the job really only took a few days. The price was definitely lower than we expected and the results look even better than the design. The process of working with the 3D designer was great. Brandon and Oz were also great. Truly everyone on this team is great. Iâ m really happy with the color and liveliness of the grass. It makes the space look bigger and cleaner. The steps are much more convenient than the little hill driveway and the whole fam is pretty impressed. Encore Builders took the time to understand our preferences - nothing was rushed. The option for 3D design allowed us to envision the work without having to commit. It helped relieve the pressure a little bit since Im not used to these types of renovations. In conclusion, I cannot recommend Encore Builders highly enough for any landscaping work. I also recommend the use of 3D design to anyone who doesnâ t want to jump right in to a project. Dont let other companies pressure you. Although this is an additional step in the process it is a great tool and gives you an idea of a final result.

A company like no other!! Encore builders did a fantastic job on our front yard. I had been debating between artificial grass and sod for quite some time now. I know artificial grass is less work but I prefer to have the real deal - nothing like the smell of a fresh mowed lawn(; I honestly didnâ t even consult with any other company. My sister did a huge project with Encore Builders in the Malibu area about a year ago and the results were flawless and look as good today as it did when the project was freshly completed. Brandon and Ozzy came over to scope out the area and take some measurements and we went ahead and set a date to start the project. The crew workers came over and removed all the previous debris and grass. They leveled out the area and added some fertilizer. The following day they came with the fresh sod and laid it out in perfect rows. As you can see there are no gaps between sod pieces and everything looks fabulous! Brandon and Oz said the frequent rain will actually help the sod and allow it establish roots (usually Im not a fan of the rain but hey at least there was a bright side this time). I canâ t wait to see the results in a few months once the grass has settled in. Now in addition to the beautiful work Brandon and Oz have done - I just say their charming personalities is what truly stands out. I understand why they have such glowing reviews and why my sister was adamant I use their services. They are just two down to earth guys who know their stuff. They are professional and communicative and simply the sweetest people. Thanks again guys!!!

It was great working with Brandon and Oz and their crew to complete my backyard renovation. We set up a meeting for them to give me an estimate back in December. Timing wise I wasnâ t ready to get started on this project but out of all the estimates I got I decided to give Encore Builders a call around late January.They were the two guys that stuck out to me as genuine and professional. I asked them to come by once again to go over what we discussed. They were happy to swing by and explain everything to me step by step. Brandon and Oz had great recommendations on the style and layout and we ended up moving forward with some paving work to add stepping stones. I really like the way it turned out - definitely gives the backyard a luxury feel. The artificial grass installation itself turned out seamless. In my opinion it makes the backyard appear more spacious. Everyone always showed up on time and kept everything professional. Encore Builders is an outstanding company. Fair pricing, professional work, and honest people. Iâ m glad this is the company I chose and have nothing but positive things to say.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Encore Builders for my backyard project. I am extremely satisfied with their work. From start to finish, they communicated and were upfront. I had a specific budget in mind and Brandon and Oz were transparent with pricing and costs. We actually ended up below budget for artificial grass and stepping stones. The crew workers were kind and cleaned up after themselves. Everyone was always on time, estimates were sent out within the timeframe, and everything was executed according to plan. The quality of the work exceeded my expectations and I am happy to recommend Encore Builders to my family and friends. They are a trustworthy company that goes above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction. Donâ t hesitate - call them up.

3d design brought to life!!!! So as anyone else would be - I was a little hesitant about moving forward with such a big project. I called a few companies in my area (well 10 be exact!) and Encore Builders was one of them. First meeting: Brandon and Oz came by to scope out the area and take some measurements. I have never done such a big project and expressed my concerns and they recommended we do a 3d design so that I can see what the outcome will look like. I was detailed in how I wanted everything to look and feel. I even had a little Pinterest board put together of the patio furniture I wanted so I showed that to Brandon and Oz and they ended up including it in the 3d design. You can tell theyâ re very experienced not only in the work itself but the design aspect. They were hands on throughout the whole experience and it made me comfortable in my decision in moving forward with them. They also showed me a lot of impressive before and afters so I knew what to expect quality wise. Second meeting: they came over and presented the 3d design. I WAS STUNNED. The rendered design looked beautiful and looked even better than the vision I had in my head. It was a no brainer for me to choose Encore Builders. It gave me the reassurance I needed to start this project. It looked so realistic and was obviously tailored to my backyard measurements so it was really to see how it would look in real life! Right then and there we set up a start date for a few days later. The outcome looked exactly like the 3d design - I was beyond impressed. Brandon , Oz and their whole crew truly work from the heart. You can tell they love what they do and do it with a smile on their face. Their customer service skills are 11/10 and they really are the best!
