Upon completion of our new pool and deck area, we were left with a torn-up and irregular shaped backyard that desperately needed landscaping and lighting. Other than new gravel and a few metal saguaros from Desert Steel, we had no plan of what we could actually do with space that closely resembled a lunar landing area. We decided it was in our best interests to consult with a professional landscape design group that could envision how all of the elements in our backyard could come together in a cohesive way, and create a beautiful space that we would fall in love with. While we intended to interview several landscape designers, the first person that actually came to our home was April Caley with Landscapes by Caley. Everything about April impressed us from the moment we met her. As she walked our backyard for the first time, we were delighted by the initial design ideas she shared with us. We also learned that while she is the project designer, her husband, Jim, works side by side with his crews to complete the actual improvements. In our opinion, that was just another “plus” that demonstrated how personally vested they are in their work. Within a very short period of time, we approved the final design and our project was under contract. While we certainly know there are other good landscape designers out there, after meeting April, we never interviewed anyone else. Sometimes you just “know” the kind of people you want to work with. Moving forward, the actual construction started on an agreed time and was a very pleasant experience. Jim and his crew are fantastic, very personable and respectful, and take pride in the work that they do. We could tell that they had certain goals to meet each day, and they did. They arrived on time, and cleaned up after themselves each and every day. Jim even took the time to search for, and find, a type of lighting fixture that illuminates the interior of the Desert Steel saguaros. They look really cool at night!

In conclusion, it’s hard to put into words the extraordinary transformation that took place in our backyard thanks to April and Jim Caley and their wonderful team, George, Jason and Darrin. April’s incredible vision and design talent, combined with Jim’s construction expertise and perfectionism, would turn our backyard and the look of our new pool, patio and BBQ area into a work of art that is beautiful, balanced and functional. Now, every time we glance out to our backyard, we can't believe we get to live here and we love being home, outside, and sharing it with our friends and family. If you're looking to enhance your outdoor living space with extraordinary artistic quality and unique landscaping elements, then we highly recommend Landscapes by Caley. And, most importantly, they are just as nice as they are talented!

Not our words but those of our friends and neighbors that have seen our yard since it was landscaped by Jim and April Caley.

Can't say enough positive things about this hard-working team. Jim is on the job-site everyday and all day. April is on-site making certain that things are according to plan. They are willing to make changes "on-the-fly" (unlike some other landscapers in the area!) to enhance or improve the design. We feel that we were treated quite fairly and have received great value for our dollars spent. Just had our last big monsoon downpour…over an inch of rain in about two hours…and the yard drained beautifully. Their attention to detail is not common today. It is so refreshing to work with people that are honest, fair and fun to work with. We strongly recommend the Caley's for your landscaping projects. You can't beat honesty, integrity, and value…not to mention an outstanding (see above) yard!

Disclaimers: (i) I don’t normally write testimonials or provide recommendations…mainly because I’m tough to please and most contractors don’t meet my expectations, (ii) I’m not related to the Caleys and had never met them before our backyard project.

My wife and I talked to four contractors regarding our backyard redo. We had a rough idea of what we wanted the yard to look like; everything had to go and a new, low-maintenance yard would take its place. After meeting with the various contractors, our choice was pretty easy: April and Jim Caley were the only ones who tried to understand our needs and desires for the backyard. The other contractors had their own ideas that they tried to impose on us or took our concept and quoted a price. The Caley's took the time to learn about us and asked questions to help us refine our vision, which made it much better. Ultimately, we gave them some creative latitude from the “approved” plan and we were blown away by the end result. Jim and April provided the personal touch, the attention to detail, and the creative thinking required to make this tough-to-please customer extremely happy. Everyone on the team was pleasant and hard-working (even our neighbors commented on this!).

Joe and Cindy Davis

My wife and I can't believe the difference in our landscaping. April and Jim took a marginal, neglected front landscape and turned it into the neighborhood showpiece. Our neighbors came by during the transformation and commented on how great the house looks now. April and Jim thanks for the beautiful job and we will definitely call on you for our next project.

We have had a half dozen landscaping companies over the last 10 years but finally found someone that takes pride in their work. April and Jim make sure the scope of work meets the owners desires, the work crew is efficient and very neat. And they brought another person in to evaluate some trees that we were told were near dead and needed to be removed. Between he and the Caley's, the trees were saved. My wife and I will recommend April and Jim to anyone asking.

Ed and Marilyn Simmons

We are so happy with what Jim and April have done for our back yard. Originally the small yard had only rocks and a couple of ugly bushes, one of which April told us was a tree. We wanted to have a garden and that meant getting rid of a lot of rock. Compounding the problem was the fact that there is no entrance to the yard except through the house. But Jim and his crew hauled away rock, one bucket at a time until we had the garden space we wanted. They then brought in loads of top soil, trimmed the tree that was a bush, planted 4 more trees and many shrubs. Today our yard is a beautiful, green spot that is more than we had hoped for. Thanks Jim, April and crew.

Charlie and Susan Vestring

Thanks for a beautiful landscape and water feature. We could not be happier. What a pleasure to deal with such professional’s as the Caley’s and their crew. Right from the initial contact and with several additional inquiries over the next several months (with no guarantees) they were responsive and always willing to provide suggestions in coming up with our design.

Once the landscaping was started, they were informative of progress and of the time table for completion. They were very flexible through out the whole process staying within our ever changing design & budget. Their expertise in the area’s do’s and don'ts were very helpful for this first time Arizona homeowner.
