K&B Landscape Service Inc Company Profile
Some landscape companies are notoriously unprofessional and they're no bargain, whatever their pricing.
So it's significant that consumers throughout Contra Costa County tell of K&B Landscape Services in San Ramon CA being known as a truly professional landscape company that saves you money with quality work. Michael Kobold owns K&B Landscaping and we interviewed him to find out how he achieved this good reputation.
K&B Landscape Services: Professional Landscapers in Contra Costa County
Over 20 years ago, K&B Landscape Services owner Michael Kobold expanded his plant nursery in San Ramon CA to serve his customers with the professional landscape installations they craved, compared to so many of the flaky, amateur landscape services doing business in San Ramon and Contra Costa.
It's the professionalism that stands out at K&B Landscape Services, along with their experienced, dedicated employees. Michael Kobold explains, "We have truly professional staff and that sets us apart. They're educated, experienced and know how to do it right. Customers say that our products and service are far better than what so many other landscapers do. Our number one goal is customer satisfaction so our clients feel secure and comfortable and that they understand the process and are happy with the results."
Meets Design Objectives & Save Money with K&B Landscape Services
Clients with budget limits can still achieve their goals because K&B Landscape Services knows how to use different products that are functional, stylish and fit the budget. Michael Kobold explains, "There are numerous finishing materials we use to meet the budgets of clients who want to gain more space in their back yard. Say a client wants a retaining wall faced with flagstone, but their budget doesn't allow for that. We can put the same high-quality retaining wall and stucco the exterior to match their home. The stucco option is still very attractive and it gives them the additional space they're looking for but is less costly than a flagstone-covered wall."
K&B Landscape Services has other ways to help clients get the best designs at budget-friendly prices. Repeat customer Arlene found that K&B Landscape Services would complete her design in phases as her budget allowed for future additions. During a research phone call for this article she told us, "They were fantastic! I was exceptionally impressed by their designer who came out at no charge and went right to work on a design for me. I am redoing my backyard in three sections, and for this part, she designed a retaining wall with lights. It looks great!"
During another research phone call for this article, a customer named Raquel said, "K&B Landscape came up with a beautiful plan. Their designer, Jennifer, listened to our ideas and added her own touches to design a plan beyond our wildest dreams. Their installers worked hard, did a great job and came in under budget."
Professional Knowledge of Local Codes and Permits at K&B Landscape Services
When landscapers don't know all the local codes and city building regulations, they put clients at financial risk. "Items aren't built or installed to code are a big problem when homeowners try to sell their property," explains Michael Kobold. "In fact, they have to fix all those code violations before they sell, and the repair cost is far greater than hiring a landscaper who does it right in the first place."
Because K&B Landscape Services is a locally-based landscaping company with more than 20 years of experience, their professional staff understands local building requirements as well as the people who enforce them. Michael details, "Codes are constantly changing, so we educate ourselves and find out what the rules and regulations are. We also have strong relationships with the local cities, so we take care of all the permitting for our clients. Anyone who has dealt with the permitting process understands that it's time consuming and aggravating. That's why it's included in our services. It needs to be done for the projects to be legal, and we want to save our clients the trouble of dealing with it, so we take care of it ourselves."
Michael Kobold grew up in the local area, and his love for the San Ramon and the Tri-Valley area benefits his clients and the community. Now he and his wife and their two children live in Clayton CA. The family is very athletic and enjoys water sports together including wakeboarding and skiing. His daughter plays high school softball at a competitive level and his son, a freshman in college, plays lacrosse. Michael plays softball and coaches football, baseball and fast-pitch softball. He is also president of a local fast-pitch softball association that gives local high students an edge in college-prep women's softball.
Professional Customer Care from K&B Landscape Services
Once the project is done, K&B Landscape Services staff only leaves once you're completely satisfied. "At the end of the project, we do a walk-through with our clients to make sure the job is exactly as they wanted," Michael Kobold says. "Clients also get a maintenance pamphlet so they know exactly how to care for their yard in the future. Homeowners can even fill out a survey about our services and our product and we use the responses from those to further improve our approach."
With too many unprofessional landscape companies in Contra Costa, it's reassuring that previous customers attest that Michael Kobold and the team at K&B Landscape Services is one who for over 20 years has been delivering quality work with real value due to a higher level of professionalism and customer care.
