Customer Testimonials

"Rosarie is very prompt with responding and I felt like her quotes seemed very fair to me."

Alex O.

I recently hired these guys really solely based on there name and availability. Rosarie is very prompt with responding and I felt like her quotes seemed very fair to me. I had them do a bunch of work on my front and back yard. Which included a lot of new plantings, trimming of old trees, application of new mulch and the installation of a new drip system. All seemed to go very smoothly. The two of them worked two very solid days in our front yard, which badly needed the help, and we could not be happier!! Thanks guys!

“ The job was high intensity of lifting and carrying rocks and soil from street to yard.”

David D.

Rosarie and her crew did a fantastic job. Spent good eight hours in weeding and transformed the backyard. We wanted a rock garden with low drought cactus plants. The job was high intensity of 
lifting and carrying rocks and soil from street to yard. We thought that
the estimate was fair, for the amount of work that was done. Very happy
with the backyard. I would use Rosarie and crew again, if needed for
garden work etc.

"Shane and Rosarie did a very thorough post-winter cleanup and prune on our garden."

Nathaniel K.

Shane and Rosarie did a very thorough post-winter cleanup and prune on our garden. Their rates were comparable to other services in the Bay and they were happy to work with us on scheduling given the rainy weather this year, thinking through the options with us, and working within our budget. I would use them again for future projects.

"I like their creativity and diligence. Very reasonable prices and a reliable group! I highly recommend them."

Gabriele H.

I had Shane and Rosarie replant my vegetable garden. As I noticed, there were problems with a some pavement on the garden path and on the gravel patio. They redid everything for a very good price.

I like their creativity and diligence. Very reasonable prices and a reliable group! I highly recommend them.

I have no problem highly recommending this local company.

Anthony R.

When I was searching for a garden/yard cleaning service, I found this company on line. Well the name was the reason I went with the company. Shane and Rosarie couldn't have been more professional and trustworthy with my yard. The communication and punctuality were very appreciated also. It was a big job and they impressed me within the 2 days that they worked. I have no problem highly recommending this local company.

These guys are true artistans and really hard workers who have a keen eye for beauty and incredible plant knowledge. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

Christopher S.

HD are really into what they do. We just needed a total clean-up of our back-yard space in Berkeley that had become overgrown and weedy. They came in and went straight to work, cleaning out old brush and weeding the paths and pruning back the various plants. I came home to a new space in my back yard and from there started asking about additional plants and features I could add to make the space even more homely. Today I have a beautiful backyard space in which to relax of an evening or entertain friends of a weekend. I always feel proud when friends compliment me on my garden and have the guys at Hoes and Ditches to thank for it. Keep up the good work!!!

Easy to deal with and honest to a fault, Rosarie in particular has an incredible eye for what plants work and what don't. I had some very specific requests regarding the mood I wanted to create in my garden and these guys definitely exceeded my expectations in every way. These guys are true artistans and really hard workers who have a keen eye for beauty and incredible plant knowledge. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

"No project is too large or small for her. I recommend her highly!"

Alicia M.

My husband and I recently moved into a house with a large, abandoned garden that seemed to have a lot of potential. We negotiated a deal with our landlord for discounted rent in exchange for building out the backyard, but had no idea where to start. I saw Rosarie's cute little truck around the neighborhood, and decided to give her a call to help us out. I'm so glad I did! I know nothing at all about gardening, but you would never know that looking at my yard now! It's beautifully landscaped and full of gorgeous giant plants (don't ask me what they're called) that make my morning coffee time in the yard so relaxing. I just let her do whatever she wanted with the space, and couldn't be happier with the results. She even managed to resuscitate a near-dead ficus we'd all but given up on. It's immediately apparent that she's great at what she does, and cares a lot about doing it well. No project is too large or small for her. I recommend her highly!
