We are delighted at how smooth and enjoyable the process was to take an ambitious design from our landscape architect [Jarrod Baumann] and translate it into a living work of art... We greatly appreciated your frequent presence on the job site and your accessibility via e-mail and telephone. We were able to evolve the plans and make new decisions quickly thanks to the excellent communication that you maintained with everyone involved... Most importantly we love our garden!

Sharon Perl and Greg Nelson, Palo Alto

The quality of construction and detailing Mott Landscape continually performs is outstanding.

Jarrod Ryan Baumann, Zeterre Landscape Architecture

When I am designing a project I see the final design in my mind; Mott Landscape's work always exceeds my expectations for the final vision. When I know that Mott Landscape is going to install one of my projects I can relax knowing that they will respect my design, pay close attention to the details, and give the client great value for their money.

Paul Jay Reed, Reed Associates Landscape Architecture

What can I say...Mott Landscape was awesome to work with! They executed a complete makeover of our front yard this summer with great success. I'm an architect by profession so working with me could have been challenging. Alas...not a problem for Gary and his crew. Not only did they work to a schedule but Gary worked with us to accomplish what we had envisioned within our budget. Gary's team did an excellent job of communicating with me during the course of the project as well as attending to many of the various little details that were important to us.
We are extremely happy with the quality of the work and the finished product. We have received many compliments from our neighbors and friends already. Our experience was perfect...I would not hesitate to recommend Mott Landscape to anyone!

Winfield Roney, Los Altos

Gary and John were trusted partners in our backyard landscape project. Not only did they execute to our high standards, but they had fantastic design suggestions when needed as well. We couldn't be happier with how our backyard turned out.

Jason Koehn, Almaden

We are so appreciative of the detailed and thoughtful work that you and your team did on our landscape installation. It was a collaborative effort that resulted in a front and back yard tailor-made for us! We couldn't ask for anything more perfect. We enjoyed the experience of working together and hope we have the opportunity again in the future.
All the best,

Suzanne & JR Rivers, Saratoga

Mott Landscape completely renovated our backyard. We couldn't be happier! When friends and family see it for the first time their mouths drop open at the beautiful transformation. Mott Landscape worked with us on every detail to make sure it was what we wanted. They were happy to collaborate with us and offer solutions to get it just right. The quality and customer service made working with them an enjoyable process. We always felt that our satisfaction was their primary goal. We would highly recommend Mott Landscape.

Bob and Lynette Garland, Los Gatos

My clients love working with Mott Landscape. Projects are finished on time and within budget. Gary's ideas serve to enhance projects and his crew really go that extra mile to make sure that projects sparkle.

Candice Stein, Landscape Designer

Mott Landscape has exceeded our expectations on every level. Gary is detailed oriented, organized and crystal clear about everything. He has all things considered and has lots of great ideas that helped us make wise choices. For example he suggested irrigation system that saves us water, weed-control material that's natural and child-friendly, etc. His quotes are detailed and respectful of our budget...The outcome is fantastic and we're so happy and thankful now looking at it everyday.

Jay Tong, Mountain View

I would recommend Mott Landscape to anyone looking for a contractor who will deliver high quality work on time and within budget. Gary provided a detailed estimate before starting the work and then provided daily updates throughout the project. His on-site manager and crew were very courteous, professional and knowledgeable. Gary's diversified experience with different types of landscapes makes him an excellent choice for people who want a contractor that is both creative and reliable.

Susan Siravo, Willow Glen

I've though about you and John a bit this summer as we've enjoyed our backyard, I figured it's about time to let you know. It's hard to believe it's the same place as last year, the new waterfall and landscaping make it completely different, I'm still amazed at how quickly and smoothly the transition happened. You and your crew made quick work of it, and we're completely happy with the outcome. Not only that, it's passed the true test; we're spending more time than ever in the yard, and even when we're not out there, it's always in view from our main living areas, and if we're not enjoying it outside, it seems like the birds are, and we're inside watching them! The water is a huge attraction for us all.

Allen Buchinski, San Jose

Since our kids have grown up and gone off to college, we felt that it was time to remodel and redecorate our home so that it's just the way we want it. Without a doubt, our favorite area is our new backyard that Mott Landscape completed for us last year. All the features were perfectly executed every step of the way. We still can't help but smile every time we walk outside. It's beautiful, relaxing, functional and inviting. No one can love there landscape more than we do!

Ken and Sue Sutherland, Menlo Park

Gary Mott and his crew did a fantastic job in creating our dream front and back yard from a design by Candice Stein. Gary was easy to work with and helped us keep to our budget. New patios, front steps, terracing with rock walls, fences, arbors and a myriad of other aspects all integrated beautifully and completely exceeded our expectations. The installation went quickly, and we were amazed by the steady daily progress on our project from start to finish. We've also had excellent follow-up in subsequent years with minor upgrades and maintenance issues. We wholeheartedly recommend Mott Landscape!

Dan Dermer, Naglee Park

It was a pleasure working with Gary Mott... He is organized and professional, our project started on time and finished on time. Gary is meticulous with great attention to detail...the work that he performed was of high quality and he finessed every detail. We are very happy with the final result!

Stefano Concina, Saratoga

The garden looks absolutely beautiful and we are enjoying our time dinning al fresco. Before you were recommended to us we had lost trust in landscape contractors due to our previous experiences. You certainly turned that around. It was seamless and easy working with you and your crew. The budget and cost for the project was always transparent and we appreciated your input and advice on where to save or spend. It was always right on. We are looking forward to working with you again in the future.

Tom and Inken Sparkman, Monte Sereno

Mott Landscape did a great job in every phase of our project. The quote was detailed, the management of the project was solid and was completed on time. Additionally the follow up after the project has been excellent... The quality of the work has met our expectations and in a few key areas exceeded our expectations. Such as the back stone retaining wall, the timeliness of the project, accessibility to you and John when we had questions and lastly both you and John's creative assistance at multiple points in the project. We were very satisfied with the people, craftsmanship and are enjoying our backyard.

Mark and Michele Landrith, Los Altos

You are the most responsive, dependable and precise contractor we were fortunate to work with... With your imagination and creativity you were able to improve on an excellent design by our landscape designer [Candice Stein] and make our yard incredibly beautiful... Because of your careful, persistent eye, we must say that out yard turned out incredible... You are the BEST!

Craig and Dana Vargas, San Jose

We really enjoyed working with Mott Landscape. From the initial contact through final walkthrough, they were professional, responsive and attentive to details. We plan on using them again!

Cinnamon Chu, Los Altos Hills

Over the years Mott Landscape has landscaped various projects of mine including my personal residences. One of the things I really appreciate is how Gary checks in periodically to see how things are working out and has even resolved issues long after the initial installation. If you're looking for a knowledgeable person of high integrity who thrives on customer satisfaction, I can recommend contacting Gary Mott.

Michael Sotero, Architect www.michaelsotero.com/

Eric and I had the pleasure of working with Gary Mott and his team at Mott Landscape this past year. We remodeled our 1950's rancher to add a new master suite and completely revamp the backyard. We have a small 6,600 square foot lot so our project presented a number of challenges. We had developed a plan for the yard working with Jarrod Baumann at Zeterre Landscape Architecture. Jarrod created a number of outdoor rooms for us including a patio, pool area and rear firepit. Once this very detailed and complicated design was completed Gary and his team went to work. The yard was a mess. We'd had our old 1970's era pool removed to make way for the remodel so all that remained was a bleak patch of hard packed clay soil. The transformation began while the house construction was still underway. So not only did Gary have to work around the chaos that the builder was creating he also had to insure that the construction crew didn't destroy the new pool, hardscape, and plant materials that he was installing. Since the yard is not spacious this was no small feat. Within weeks our beautiful new yard emerged from the rubble. The change has been amazing! Gary's crew did a fabulous job of making Jarrod's design come to life. Gary worked very closely with us and kept us apprised of the construction schedule. His crew treated our property as if it was their own. They were meticulous about clean up and really took pride in their work. We are so pleased that we were able to work with Gary on this project. His professionalism and attentiveness to detail is outstanding. He truly loves his work and that is evident in the finished product. We highly recommend Mott Landscape.

Eric Pearson and Maggie Baxter-Pearson, Redwood City

Gary and his team are the best. We have enjoyed our new backyard so much in the last year. The lighting is beautiful year-round, and the firepit is great fun for the family and for guests. We told Gary our long-term plans included some construction on the garage, and he wisely advised we create a border area on our new patio that could be used for trenching to the house. We're so grateful he identified and solved that problem for us. The construction crew is getting ready to remove the border as planned and NOT to demo our brand new patio! Gary thinks of everything and delivers beautifully.

Cindy Newberry, Naglee Park

As someone who is woefully aware that the average major refurbishment of a home comes in 50% over schedule and 50%-100% over budget, I was pleasurably amazed at the performance of Mott Landscape in renovating the garden and driveway in front of my house! The work started when it was promised to start, ended spot on the projected completion date, and consisted of the seamless coordination of a number of different skilled, courteous and responsive teams... The very few minor blemishes (e.g. a few plants didn't survive the first few weeks after installation) were remedied promptly and as promised. My impression of Mott Landscape is: ethical, excellent and expert execution! I heartily recommend them.

Armar Archbold, Los Altos

We used Mott Landscape to redo our front yard in October 2009. The designer we used recommended Mott Landscape and one other contractor. Friends recommended another and neighbors also recommended one. We got bids from each of these 4 contractors. All the bids were competitive although Mott was the highest. We looked at several Mott Landscape jobs and spoke with two previous clients. We were very impressed with all of the jobs we saw, and the clients we spoke with were very complimentary. In fact one of them said in essence, that we'd be stupid not to go with Mott Landscape. So we chose Mott Landscape. It was a good decision. They estimated our job would take about 3 weeks but they were done in two. I tend to be a bit picky with contractors, particularly because I had a bad experience with the landscapers who did our back yard. John, the foreman on our job, was great. He patiently answered my all questions and concerns, made great suggestions, and was not afraid to let me know if my ideas weren't so good. For example, I decided I wanted to add a bench just off a flagstone area and thought maybe a bench made out of the flagstone would be the way to go. We discussed it and John felt a flagstone bench would be too costly and not offer enough contrast with the flagstone in the patio. He suggested I look around for a pre-fabricated concrete bench. I found just the right bench, he installed it at no extra charge, and it looks great. John's judgment and knowledge are both excellent. Throughout the job, I felt that Mott Landscape made quality their first priority. I never saw them cutting corners and quickly became comfortable enough with them that I didn't feel the need to monitor them constantly. I was pleasantly surprised that not only was the work outstanding, but they finished ahead of their projected schedule. That has never happened to me before. The workers kept the worksite clean, were very professional, showed up when they were supposed to, and worked hard throughout the project. There were no surprises. So even if Mott Landscape is a bit more expensive than other landscaping contractors, they're worth it. You'd be stupid not to go with them.

Dave Kehmeier, Almaden Valley

We cannot say enough about the fantastic job Gary Mott did in transforming our backyard into the incredible garden we wanted'I have never met anyone I would recommend as highly as Gary. [He] was very patient with us, and his experience and suggestions proved to be invaluable in assuring that our yard would flourish long after he was finished. He completed the project in the time period he gave us, despite the fact that at the last minute I decided I wanted a large arbor added! Another important thing: His crew was great! (I have NEVER said that about any crew who worked on our house). I was very impressed with their dedication to the job and knowledge of landscaping. Gary's crew was so pleasant to work with that we were actually sad to see them go.
