We're proud to claim being one of the highest rated landscape companies in metro Atlanta.

I am a very happy customer! As soon as Jay found out my husband and I were planning on selling he told me to basically "keep it simple" and steered me away from expensive projects that I thought needed to be done. Our back and side yards were a total disaster from both too much shade and too much rain. He told me that the new buyers may want to do something totally different with the back yard and to just do something that would look nice and tasteful. I loved that he wasn't trying to sell us expensive services. It turned out gorgeous and we spent way less than we anticipated! His crew did a superb job and were polite and professional. I can't stop looking at our back and side yards and thinking how pretty it all looks now. If I need any landscaping done at our new home, he will be my first choice again. I highly recommend Service First Landscapes to anyone who asks me.

Service First Landscaping just finished a job at my house in Norcross. They transformed my entire back yard from a mud hole with a broken sprinkler system and drainage issues into a lawn that my grand kids can now play in. Jay and Larry worked with me to design and come up with a yard that is now sunny and green. They also created a huge flower box, installed new stairs, and a stone dry river bed that created a lush play yard for the kids. I cannot recommend Service First Landscaping more. Use them and you will not be disappointed.

Jay & his team are first rate! My patio & landscape design is unique & beautifully executed. Work was done on time and correctly - and always mess was cleaned up at the end of the day. The quote for the work was very detailed & overall price a great value. After work was completed & completely paid for I contacted Jay with a concern - that concern was immediately & courteously addressed and corrected - unlike another landscaper I have had in the past that somehow disappeared and never reappear after he was paid. Jay stands behind his work & is truly interested in customer satisfaction!! How very refreshing for a contractor to actually be a man of his word!! Highly recommend Service First!

I was really impressed with the work done by Jay and his team from Service first. Everyone was on time (actually early most of the time) for appointments, and they really took the lead for a couple of young homeowners like us. Jay created a wonderful design idea for our yard, and was completely flexible to meet our budget needs. We will absolutely be working with them again in the future for our landscaping needs.

We've used Service First for several projects. Jay and his team do exceptional work. Landscape designs look great and and more than fit our needs. Meticulous care and preparation. High quality products. Very detailed written proposals so there are no surprises. All this at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended!

Service First Landscapes recently built a fire pit and patio in our backyard, as well as remedy an erosion problem with our drainage creek. Jay and his team were professional and hard working for the entire process, beginning with a very thorough estimate and ending with a final walk through of the project at completion. We were very pleased with the patio and fire pit; both were involved processes but turned out perfect! Service First helped us reclaim a part of our yard we couldn't use previously and made it a wonderful outdoor living space. We highly recommend them!

Our backyard had drainage issues and overgrowth which needed to be addressed. We also wanted to create an outdoor space that we could enjoy with family and friends. There was a lot to complete and Jay took the necessary time to review our needs and re-work the plan to stay within our budget with results beyond our expectations! The project started quickly and was completed as promised. We are excited to enjoy our yard again.

We called out Service First to look at our lawn problems and replace a number of shrubs. Jay showed up when he said he would and prepared a very detailed proposal and then came out a second time to walk us through the proposal and make any changes we wanted. He gave us a new proposal the next day and work started in 2 weeks on the day/time Jay said it would. His crew did a great, professional job and cleaned up each day. I would highly recommend Jay and his team and wouldn't hesitate to hire them again.

Jay and his crew helped renovate our front yard. We removed all of the dead and dated bushes and replanted a more modern look with a combination of plants and flowers. He also installed two stone retaining walls and put down a few pallets of new sod. He came to the house and walked thru all of our concerns and ideas. He offered his our opinions and for certain things a cheaper alternative. Once we agreed on the work he took the time to go over everything we were doing and did a final walk thru before the crew got there. David was the foreman on the crew and was great to work with. The work was finished in a week and then Jay went over post renovation care. His communication was great on both email and phone. Will definitely use again on our next project.

I'm writing a review from the perspective of long-term satisfaction with Service First's work. Many people can put in a retaining wall and other hardscaping but will that wall still be up years later? Will the area flood with heavy rains etc. etc.? Three years ago Jay & his crew did a major makeover of our back yard including grading, excavations, stone retaining wall, flagstone patio, stone pathway and other hardscaping. 3 years later it still looks & performs great! No shifting in the rock work even with the wide range of temperatures we've had in GA the last few years. No unusual pooling of water or drainage problems. We started with a good planning session with Jay and the project came out even better than we'd envisioned. We have used him for smaller projects since then and are getting ready to get him to do another one -- prep a hot tub area & expand the flagstone patio size. Jay is always on time, on schedule & on budget.
