Best ever landscaper!

Simply amazing on every level. My wife and I had been researching landscapers when we came across R.T. Scape. We went to a friends house for dinner and they had just had their yard landscaped by Rich and his crew [R.T. SCAPE] and the work they had done was absolutely beautiful. An outdoor kitchen, a beautiful stone fire pit and a water feature. We contacted Rich and he came out and gave us some ideas. We agreed on a plan and the work was done on point, in time and professionally on all levels. Rich is extremely knowledgeable and was full of ideas for our budget. We love our new yard. Thank you R.T. Scape. - Jerry W. San Mateo

Great Experience

After we purchased our home last year we weren't sure who to go to when it was time to landscape our yard. We saw an R.T. SCAPE truck on our street so I called the number. We met with Rich Tyler the owner and he was so knowledgeable and gave us ideas for things we had never thought of. He gave us a plan and we got started about 2 weeks after our original meeting. My husband and I were so impressed by how timely everything was being executed and the care exhibited by the whole landscape crew. Rich even took my husband and I to Boething Treeland in Portola Valley to help us pick out trees and shrubs that we liked! All in all amazing......We are absolutely thrilled with our yard. We had a party for Super Bowl and everyone was awestruck how beautiful our yard looks. Lighting, stone work, an arbor and we decided to do a water feature at the last minute, Awesome. We would recommend R.T. SCAPE to everyone and we do! Sincerely, Sarah H Hillsborough, CA - Sarah Hagman

Can't Believe the Difference

We hired Rich and his crew to come out and do our front and back yard. We had read a few bad reviews on Yelp about him and after working with him I am truly not going to turn to Yelp for "Proper" reviews. Where to start.....the morning we met with Rich we told him our budget as well as ideas we had for the yard. He was so helpful and accommodating. He drew up some plans and as the job moved forward he was way ahead of schedule. We wanted a new lawn and plants in the front yard and he did a rock border with raised planting areas with lighting and in the back yard he put new lawn and did matching rock borders along with lighting and raised planting areas. He knew what plants would be drought tolerant and deer resistant and he stayed within our budget. We want him to come out and do an outdoor kitchen for us when our budget allows. A definite go to company. The Walsh Family, San Mateo - The Walsh Family

You will not be disappointed!!!

I have always been skeptical of contractors after having had bad experiences with them in the past. I met with Rich in June and he was truly a breath of fresh air. He was very honest with me and told me that he would do his best to get my yard done within my budget and that is exactly what he did. He even threw in a few freebies. He and his crew were there everyday and my project was done on schedule. When the city inspector came to inspect the electrical he had installed he ended up teaching the inspector a few things! The yard looks simply amazing and we spend our time outside now every chance we get. Definitely would recommend them to everyone. - Roger and Sally J.

Why did we wait so long?????

If we only new then what we know now. We met with Rich and had no idea what to do with our back yard in Belmont. We had a lot of unusable space and treacherous hills. He drew up a design and we were amazed at the ideas he had. He put in stairs that led from our front yard to the back yard and cleared out the hillside. He creating walkways and planted areas and even created a sports court!!! My kid are simply thrilled that they can now go out in the back yard and play for the first time. Our family couldn't be happier. More than we could ever have imagined thanks to Rich and his amazing crew. If you're considering a landscape contractor RT SCAPE is awesome. - Joe and Tara J.

Exceptional Plant knowledge

I met with Rich to discuss a variety of plants for my yard. I simply brought pictures of what I liked and he could tell me every name of the plants, even the Latin name! He went over how much light they would require, water, deer resistance etc. Left the meeting feeling so much better informed and he wrote out a plant list for me and then I went ahead and had him install them. The project probably took 3 days total. Beautiful result was the bottom line. They did all the irrigation and Rich suggested lighting and I decided to go ahead with that and I am so glad I did. My yard looks fantastic. Thank you RT SCAPE. - James R.

Great Job

I hired Rich and crew a few months ago. I was very impressed by the amount of knowledge and complete understanding he had about everything I had questions about. I told him about the fact that I was not happy with the way a few of my Maple trees looked and he informed me that they had cancer. I wasn't aware that a tree could actually get cancer. He instructed me further about more things around my yard and came up with a remedy. He got back to me with a quote within a week and I didn't hesitate. He and his crew came in and really exceeded all of my expectations. All the preconceived notions I had regarding contractors were quickly put to rest. My trees, plants and I couldn't be more pleased. If you are looking for a landscaper who really knows their stuff and truly cares call Rich. Sincerely, Don P. San Mateo - Don Patterson

A definite GO TO!

We had wanted to redo our front and back yard for a while and had no idea about what we could afford or really what plants would work. After we spoke with Rich Tyler, the owner, he reassured us that we had nothing to worry about. He went over a huge plant list with us. Boy does he know his stuff!! We came out of the meeting with him knowing more about plants than we ever thought possible. He came up with lots of ideas and really transformed our yard. From lighting and planted areas to various sized focal point rocks. Its beautiful. We couldn't be happier. The work was done on time and Rich was there for us every time we had any questions. The bottom line is, if you are hesitating to hire this company........hesitate no more. They are awesome and we couldn't be happier. We are so proud of our yard now. :) - The Fuller Residence

Wonderful Work

We hired RT Scape for weekly maintenance 7 years ago. The crew is always here on time and on schedule. If I ever have any problems I call Rich and he sends a team member over promptly to fix whatever may need fixing. Rich has always been so accommodating and his crew is GREAT! I would definitely recommend them. Last year I had him come out and bid a paver driveway for me and his price was very fair. I hired him to do the work and what a difference. GREAT JOB GUYS!! THANK YOU! - J. Swanson

Our yard is AWESOME thanks to these guys

Let me start out by saying, I too went to YELP to see their reviews and noticed that there were only 2 BAD reviews but my neighbor recommended them to me and I was really impressed with the way their yard turned out and they had nothing but good things to say about them so I followed my gut and NOT YELP.....LOL and hired them. So glad too. Rich and his crew definitely are a Five Star in my book. They came in, did the work that was contracted and the final outcome was badass!! Very thorough and finished on time. We signed a maintenance contract with them as well after the initial project was done. I would for sure recommend these guys. Really really good job! Thanks again! - Matt J.

Don't hire anyone else!

Contracted a job with RT and couldnt be happier. If you choose this company you will not be sorry. So good at what they do, no nonsense GREAT landscaper. Definitely in the genes#TYLERSCARLMONTNURSERY#knowallthingsplants#sohappy. I spent a lot of wasted time searching for someone who I wanted to spend a huge chunk of money with.......YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY :) #PERFECTLY DONE - Carol S.

Very Refreshing Experience

Rich and his guys are really a top notch group. I didn't get my hopes up because I am skeptical by nature. They did everything I contracted them for and let me just say that the quality of the work that was done was truly exceptional. I couldn't be happier and everyone who sees my yard just goes on and on about how fabulous it is. Look no further, I'm telling you. RT Scape is IT!! - F. Jensen

Worth the wait

The only reason why I'm giving them 4 stars is because I did have to wait for about 4 weeks to get my project started because they were booked, but let me tell you it was so worth the wait!!!! My yard looks better than I could of ever imagined. If you're looking for a landscape company that has knowledge about everything in terms of your yard and plants etc. RT is it. My family and I are in awe. Such a difference from before. We have a waterfall with lighting and new deck with lighting in the steps, new sod and drought tolerant plants. We bought a tv for the back yard because we'd rather be outside than inside when we eat dinner and watch games and such!! Hire them and you will NOT be sorry. - Chuck S.

Fantastic job!

We hired RT Scape to replace our walkway and install drought resistant landscape in our front yard. Based on a neighbor's recommendation. So glad we did! He did a perfect job in matching the walkway pavers to our tiled front porch. He also uses rebar for the paver border so I know it will stay in place for yrs. Other contractors did not offer that. He takes the extra step to do things right. We had an idea of what we wanted for landscaping. After talking with Rich he presented some great improvements. In the end he did a masterful job of designing our front yard. As a do-it-yourself er, I am very picky! Rich worked with me every step of the way to ensure it was what I wanted. I made many changes along the way and Rich implemented them without question, and at no extra cost! We are so pleased with our yard. Lots of compliments from neighbors. Aside from being a great landscape designer he is also a master nurseryman. An encyclopedia of all plants, even knows the Latin names. And his crew is friendly and easy to work with. - Gordon Russell
