    5.0 Brad T. Charleston, SC

    I wish I could provide more than 5 stars! From Nate helping us to develop an amazing design to Caleb managing the project so incredibly well, the team was professional, hard working, communicative, and produced a product that we love! We spoke to so many companies and we could not be more pleased with Install It Direct!

    Response from Company:


    5.0 Glenda J. Vista, CA

    Categories above don't exactly reflect the work we had done. Install It Direct removed our wood retaining wall and replaced with stone-look block (about 260 feet in length). They also installed artificial turf in our front yard, which greatly improved our curb appeal. Chris and Troy supervised these installations and their workers did an excellent job. We were very pleased with their work and it turned out great!

    5.0 Wesley R. Null, CA

    Chris MacMillan managed and designed the project. He's super knowledgable, and during the whole project, he and the project lead, Nicholas, who was in charge of the worker schedules, were both always proactive and easy to work with. I started my project small with with intention of replacing backyard cracking concrete with pavers, ended up spent a lot more on a cooking center and a fire pit, plus bunch of other miscellaneous updates and fixes. We're very happy with what it turned out.

    5.0 Jeremias Y. San Diego, CA

    These guys did an excellent job of my backyard. Robert and team were very collaborative with the entire effort without breaking the bank too much. I have my ideas in mind and the team translated them into a finished functional yard that the entire family can enjoy for many years to come. Kudos to Robert, Patrick, and special mention of Antonio, and Leandro who did the backbreaking work. I highly recommend this company! Jerry & Annette Y.

    5.0 Emily H. San Diego, CA

    Troy and Chris were absolutely fantastic to work with on our backyard project. The whole process from the initial consultation through the construction was seamless. They were patient with our questions and timely with responses. They set clear expectations on next steps, and beyond exceeded our expectations for our backyard project. I would highly recommend them, and we look forward to working with them again on our future landscaping projects.

    5.0 Tommy K. Spring Valley, CA

    From start to finish Install-It direct team did an amazing job. They were very knowledgeable, professional, courteous and hard working. They turned our backyard into an amazing site for sore eyes! I recommend Install-It direct to anyone who plans on renovating their house. Thank you all!

    5.0 Jimmy C. San Diego, CA

    Both Megan and Aaron and their team provide excellent works and services. I will choose them again if I have a similar project. We did both pavers and turf, front and backyard. They look beautiful now.

    5.0 Mark W. Solana Beach, CA

    After interviewing several paver contractors, we decided on Install-It-Direct to replace our driveway and add small patio with pavers. Chris our salesperson, besides being super friendly, was the only one to provide creative design ideas and provided a detailed estimate (most did not document the details). Install-It-Direct (IID) was not the lowest bidder, but also not the highest either. The quality of workmanship far surpassed our expectations. Frank, Nicholas, and crew were super polite and very communicative. They were amazingly fast at removing our old concrete, turf and installing over 1,000 square feet of pavers within about a week (including rain delays). I highly recommend IID.!

    5.0 Gina M. San Diego, CA

    I wish I could rate Install-It Direct with 1000 stars! I had a full front yard and driveway demo and re-build project (pavers, turf, rock, hardscape, landscape) which seemed daunting to me at first. Mostly, because I couldnâ t picture what I wanted. From the start of the project design and estimate, to follow up, demo, and install â every step of the way was professional. Thomas, Frank, Nicolas and the entire crew were exceptional. Thomasâ design work was amazing, Frankâ s project oversight totally on point, and Nicolas and the crew were professional, skilled, and did phenomenal work. I felt like I was part of the team the way everyone communicated with me. Everyone that supported this project was fantastic and the design and workmanship is perfect. My front yard exceeded my expectations in every way!
