Costa Verde was a first class company to deal with from start to finish. When Cam came by to do an estimate, I was impressed with the level of detail. Multiple measurements were made, and accurate quotes from our plans remained valid throughout the project. The crews were incredibly hard working and dedicated. I could not believe that Randy could still be so polite and respectful despite working in the hot sun from sun up to sundown! He did an amazing job on our interlocking block patio and worked harder and longer than anyone I have ever witnessed. I was impressed on a daily basis watching him excavating, hauling uncounted loads of material and constructing around our 1/3 acre property. Materials supplied were generous. I was concerned that the large boulders we had in mind for the rock walls might be compromised. I was delighted with the supply of huge boulders delivered and amazed how they were positioned. Delicate demolition and removal of old concrete pads; some attached to house foundations, was done expertly. The new concrete pads were installed and function perfectly. Chris did a great job with an extensive (10 zone) irrigation project. He had to install most of the lines during the huge excavation work needed before reconstruction. Ellice did an amazing job on the fencing around our meditation area in the back. His perfectionist style will mean a beautiful fence to last for years to come. The rock water feature that Ryan built is a central viewing focus enjoyed multiple times a day. The plantings that we contracted for were generous and expertly installed by the Costa Verde team. The shed built in the back was built to high standard that gives me pride of ownership. Costa Verde got the work done on budget and was very fair on their billing practices. We are enjoying the beauty and utility of our landscaping every day. Thank you so much to the dedicated team at Costa Verde!
“Great service, and super simple. Quote only took a few minutes, everyone was prompt and professional, and the whole process was seamless.”
“We are so pleased to be working with Costa Verde! We had them out this summer for a general yard clean-up and have now signed up for ongoing yard maintenance. Their team is very professional and we would highly recommend Costa Verde."
“I had Costa Verde come out to "trim" a 50 year old grapevine that had completely overtaken our garage. The crew was efficient, knowledgeable, and did the work with great care so as to save the plant. They managed their time well so were able to do other things in the garden that I didn't expect them to have time to do. There was so much plant matter from the weeding and pruning and I was impressed by how they left the site completely cleaned up. I would definitely use them again."
“Dan made it happen! Dan provided awesome design with great execution. I didn't know what exactly I wanted, but I was sure the space needed improvement. Dan came up with multiple options at different price points. Everything came together and at a reasonable price. I'm so happy with him that I have recommended him to my parents, and they are picky.”
“My garden looked like an ugly, overgrown bomb site until the Costa Verde crew came. In one day they civilized my garden, trees pruned, weeds demolished and the mess gone. I really appreciate their hard work and the skill they demonstrated"
“Costa Verde provided excellent gardening service. They were very organized, efficient, came in at the cost quoted and were available to discuss with me work being done.”
“I have been using Dan and his crew for regular garden maintenance for almost a year, and I couldn't be happier! His crew arrives on time, they are pleasant, friendly and work hard. Dan goes the extra mile by stopping by from time to time just to have a look around and make sure nothing needs extra attention. He is always available by phone or email for questions or information. This is a top notch gardening service and I highly recommend them!”
“We have had excellent experiences with Costa Verde. The process began with an initial consultation where we reviewed in person the work that needed to be done so that when the crew arrived (on time) on the appointed date they had already been briefed and could begin work immediately. After completing the work, the supervisor conducted a walk-through with me of the work that had been done and made some great recommendations on how to maintain the garden between visits. The garden and yard look amazing and the clean up with done to my expectation. These guys are very professional and are subject matters in their field. We have been lucky to have the same supervisor on each visit and that continuity certain contributes to the professional experience. The crew is always friendly.”
“We recently needed to have a fall-clean up done on our large property, and received a recommendation for Costa Verde. We were completely pleased with the job that they did. They were prompt, very professional, very pleasant to deal with, and left the place looking great. We will certainly be using them again in the future and have no hesitation in recommending them highly.”
“Costa Verde provides professional, friendly and fast service with great skill. We highly recommend them for your gardening needs!”
“These guys were great. On time, on budget, couldn't ask for a better experience. They turned my yard from "Bungle In The Jungle" to something that I'm proud to call my yard. My dogs even liked them, and my dogs are great judges of character. Hire them, don't think twice!”
This is our second year using Costa Verde and we are very pleased with the work they have done for us. They helped us to reclaim privacy in our backyard through affordable landscaping. They built a beautiful rock water feature and patio, according to our specifications, which we are very much enjoying. We have had our hedges trimmed, yard maintained, walls painted, and various other job done. Dan and his staff are honest, friendly, down to earth, reliable, polite, good at listening to what we want, and open to feedback.
“Costa Verde is currently working on our front landscaping and have been completely delightful to deal with. The contractors are always in a good mood, work hard, clean up and they communicate clearly. They have been thoughtful and creative regarding potential cost savings and though they aren't quite done, we can already see how beautiful the garden will look. There's a reason they get so many good reviews. They are true professionals.”
“We have used Costa Verde for our garden in the last year. They do an incredibly good job. The teams are knowledgeable, efficient and thorough. I have nurtured my garden for nearly 30 years, and now that I am unable to do so, it is wonderful to have people who care to do it for me"
"We are very impressed with our dry river bed. It turned out much better than we envisioned. The crew engaged in conversation with us regarding some layout. It had been a day of hard rain and I was pleasantly surprised to come home to find everything had been cleanup.It was a small day job for your company but I felt you gave us the same level of attention as you would a big project"
If you are looking for a company that will give you 110%, Costa Verde is that company. They will look after all your gardening/landscaping needs, including: a thorough spring cleanup, which is what I needed done, big time! I hired them in 2012 and they did such a great job that I hired them again this spring, 2013. The owner came out and gave me quotes for each individual project. He was on time, polite, knew his numbers and gave quotes that were reasonable and at the end of the job, same numbers as the quotes. Absolutely will recommend them. I also have to mention the crew....they were the BEST!! They worked hard from the moment they started on my property. Totally enjoyed having them at my residence!!
I would like to say; that your crews are always on time, organized and polite. When they say they will be here – they are! That might sound simple but we’ve experienced the opposite. I also like the ability to send emails with instructions for the visit. It just makes things so simple. Lastly – the crews that we’ve had – have done a great job!
Costa Verde met all our needs on a very extensive full backyard rejuvenation. They started with a blank canvas and in the end created a very nice space that gets countless enjoyment all year around. We had a built in BBQ area created, Gazebo for hot tub, back deck and garden beds created all around the perimeter of the backyard. Many different types of application and trades were used, and we were happy with all the services, very professional. Thanks Dan
When we decided to have our deck built, we consulted with Dan Milbrath of Costa Verde Contracting. Dan brought us his design and an extremely reasonable estimate; we decided to move forward and hire him. Wow! Within one week our deck was completed and finished to the highest standard. We are thrilled. Don’t waste your time and money with anyone else – go with Costa Verde!
Dan Milbrath and his crew accomplish house projects on time and on budget, showing knowledge and forethought. I recommend them for any of your landscaping needs.

I am really impressed with the quality and speed of service of Costa Verde. They have completed two projects for me now and both times I was extremely pleased with the results.
Working with Dan/Costa Verde was a great experience. He is super knowledgeable and gets things done in a timely manner. Dan provided us with a range of options so we could get the work done within our budget. His crews are highly productive and got so much done in the time alloted. Our place looks great! I would highly recommend Costa Verde for your gardening needs.
I was overwhelmed with what needed to be done in my garden. Dan was sympathetic to my budget and his crew took care of the chores I couldn't take care of. It gave me the impetus to start working (happily!) in my garden. They are great.
I have made many futile attempts to locate a crew that is reliable, affordable and does a good job. I am now, dealing with Costa Verde and very happy. I love that you simply email with any additional work required. The other day, Dan dropped by for a quality check. Very professional team and I heartily recommend their services.
Costa Verde did a small project for me that I felt uncomfortable doing myself. The crew was extremely courteous, and I immediately trusted them to do a good job. I am very satisfied with the work done. I would recommend them to anyone.

Dan and his team were great to work with. They made our backyard-dreams a reality by providing exceptional service and advice. Paul and Adam were friendly and efficient. Angele and Duff were knowledgeable and meticulous; true professionals who we hope to see more of socially! Working with Dan to come up with a plan and budget was also very easy and when changes had to be made, each member of the Costa Verde team responded quickly without compromising our vision and goals of the project. We met with several other landscaping companies in Victoria, but after meeting Dan we could tell he was honest and reliable, miles above the rest. We are so pleased with the results and will definitely continue to work with Costa Verde in the future. Thanks Dan and all members of the Costa Verde Team !!
An honest, grass-roots company with a friendly approach and the best customer service; their experienced landscapers do a thorough and beautiful job! Costa Verde also gives back to the community through supporting youth with disabilities and mental health issues, which is the kind of business where I like to put my money in Victoria.
I have used there services an number of times in the past. They are good on short notice and provide a good number of services from consulting to yard waste removal.
The Costa Verde team were great. I had initially started work on my project with another company but found them to be unreliable and the work was sloppy. I hired Costa Verde to clean up the mess left by the last crew and to finish the job, which they did on time and on budget. I am so happy with the finished project, my garden looks great and Dan and his team were so friendly, it was a pleasure working with them. My only regret is that I didn't choose them from the start.
This is to thank the energetic men who have helped me with my garden these past few months. The work was outstanding and I will not hesitate to request your services again in the spring.
As the Program Manager of TeenWork of CanAssist at the University of Victoria, I am so thankful to get to say we collaborate with such an amazing company! Costa Verde provides amazing, professional grade service while being truly socially responsible and an actual equal opportunity employer. The staff are fun, friendly while doing top quality work! I have never heard a complaint while on site from customers or staff. I am always impressed by the quality of work that they provide. Our program helps youth with disabilities find meaningful part-time employment and Costa Verde has been hiring youth for over two years now. They get real experience, make honest and fair wages, and every teen loves working there. I see a lot of businesses in work and I must say this is a truly remarkable company that stems from a core management team that values it's customers, staff, and the community members where they work. I would highly recommend this company to everyone, because not only are you going to get unbeatable results but you will know that you are supporting a business that supports its community and is committed to helping youth with disabilities achieve greatness.
Hard workers for a small but difficult job that I could not have done myself. Appreciated the effort and perseverance it took to get those fence holes dug.
I received fabulous service from Costa Verde. They were super responsive to my emails and enquiries, and transformed my yard from an overgrown meadow to a welcoming grassy lawn. Would most definitely recommend the Costa Verde team to anyone looking for a reliable company to transform their yard/garden/lawn. Thanks!
Last year we replaced our garden service for Costa Verde after seeing one of their promotional messages. For us and our home, hiring Costa Verde has proven to be one of the best moves we have made as we settle into our new home. Costa Verde have shown professional standards second to none when comparing any other home maintenance companies we have ever used. Their knowledge and expertise in lawn and garden is comforting for us with little time or inclination to "do it ourselves." Costa Verde takes time to communicate any issues we ever have with our gardens, and we feel comfortable when they show up every 2 weeks to give our yards the always needed west coast TLC. Thank you Costa Verde!
Finally caught up on the newspaper - nice photo of your work in the February 1 edition (http://shar.es/QKAML) Ian and his helper did great work cleaning up my garden. I'm going to try to have you come out 3 - 4 times/year. I appreciate your designs, but I appreciate more the fact that you will do maintenance. Nobody wants to!
We had Costa Verde do a fair bit of work in our front garden last year. The staff were conscientious, courteous and very hardworking. They did an amazing amount of work in a short time. We are thankful that we worked with this company
Costa Verde is a terrific business: professional, knowledgeable, very capable, friendly, and with a true social conscience. It has been a pleasure working with them, and we will happily continue to do so in the future.
Good morning! Rob and Emily have spent the past 2 days at my house/garden - I am so pleased with the work they have done - please send them back! They were incredibly helpful, professional, and knowledgeable. They gave suggestions (which were welcome) and accomplished a lot in little time. Thank you.
Thanks so much for sending me this crew. It was enjoyable to see them work together.They were thorough, conscientious and took pride in their work. Everything looks great!
Costa Verde had come to deal with my monster hedge last year and I was extremely pleased with the result. The professionalism and dedication of the crew to get the hedge into a proper shape and clean up after was wonderful. I hired them again this year to do the hedge and some other trees in my front yard. I would recommend them to my friends.
So far Costa Verde has been to my place twice, once for the estimate and the next day to start the Spring cleanup. I was immediately impressed with everyone's friendliness and the first 4 hours the crew spent in my garden made a huge and incredible dent (in a good way, of course). I'm very excited that they will be coming back to continue cleanup and then give me some peace of mind with their on-going maintenance. I also like that they do other kinds of garden construction. More to come!!
We hired Costa Verde to do two jobs for us, rebuilding (and staining) a large new set of stairs and also sanding and staining another set of stairs and a small deck. We're very happy with the work they did and everything looks great. We get compliments on the stairs practically daily. Everyone we dealt with at Costa Verde communicated well and was easy to deal with.
Prompt to respond to telephone calls and emails, Work was complete and thorough, Very happy with the professionalism of the group and work performed, Would recommend Costa Verde
When hiring Costa Verde I was so impressed with their professionalism and strong work ethic. I needed help with my Japanese garden and had ordered six yards of river rock and forty large one hundred pound boulders for my waterfall Supervisor Terry quickly stepped in to access the situation and assigned Sam and Cameron to begin moving the load. I soon realized how hard working, focused and disciplined the team were and they moved all the rock in three days. Cameron hauled wheel barrel after wheel barrel of stones to create my many river rock streams that are now running through my forest. He never once wavered and was focused on achieving his goal of removing all the rock, it was again impressive to watch a young staff member enjoying his job. They project a strong team spirit and that comes from good management. That is the key not only to be able to trust who you have hired but to have on site happy people that love what they do. I will continue to hire this excellent team of men to help create my gardens
After my husband had painted our house it was time to take a good look at what was needed to be done with the shrubs and some trees in our yard. We were both so very impressed with the work done by Rob and Emily. They were most pleasant, knowledgeable, efficient and hard working. We can't wait to have them back to tackle our overgrown cherry tree and japanese plum tree in the springtime. Thank you.
I was out of town with my house for sale, and Costa diligently took care of my landscaping needs, and accommodated my ever-changing schedule, at a very reasonable price.
