Highly recommended

My husband and I moved to Glenbrooke in 2013. We loved the house, but the backyard is large and really needed work. Last year I got a reference for Jerry Johnson and Force Once Construction from a friend who lives in our community. We checked out the web site and all the positive testimonials and knew we wanted Jerry to create a beautiful yard for us. Jerry came over and worked with our budget and a few ideas we had along with his vision and created a beautiful landscaped yard and concrete patio with patio cover. He and Debra Vaca along with Raymon and his crew, plus the patio cover subcontractors did a fantastic job. Debra dealt with the plans and getting everything approved with the City and the Board. The landscapers had the plants and trees in, drip-line system, and concrete done within three days and cleaned up after themselves each day. Then the patio guys did their thing in four hours!!! It was amazing to see everything take shape. I wanted a creek bed from back fence to patio and it turned out gorgeous. It is an absolute pleasure to look out our windows each day and we now look forward to having friends and family over for years to come to enjoy this picturesque backyard. I highly recommend Jerry and his team. They are awesome! Thanks again Jerry, Debra and Crew!!!

Great job

Jerry updated, cleaned-up, and added to my backyard landscaping that he had put in five years ago.  He did a great job then and I looked forward to his talented landscaping addition in this new update.  No disappointments here!  My husband was a building contractor so I appreciated and trusted Jerry and his crew members for their honesty, expertise, clean, knowledgeable, respectable, and " stay-on-schedule" run job.   Will I recommend him....Oh yes!  Will I have him back...Oh yes...can wait to see what he brings to the table in my future projects!

Top notch

Jerry and his crew are top notch. Design for my deck, fence, patio and Outdoor bar were beautiful. The job was completed on time, the job site was cleaned up everyday before the crew left. They even came back four months later and sealed my patio. Awesome customer service. I would hire Force One again.

Highly recommended

My wife and I purchased a home in the Del Webb community several months ago and knew we would have to re do the back yard and add a side walkway.. We asked several Del Webb neighbors  for recommendations on a landscaper and made a decision to have Jerry and his crew do our back yard make over. Jerry worked with us on our budget and what we thought we would like and agreed upon a price and the plans. Jerry completed all of the Del Webb CCR required forms and attended the meeting regarding the final review of the plans. Jerry's crew started the project on the date agreed upon and finished on the agreed upon date. The backyard is absolutely beautiful and we are completely satisfied with the work. His crew was very professional and pleasant to ourselves and our neighbors. We would highly recommend Jerry and Force One crew to any one who is need of landscaping and more. Thanks, Jerry.

Prompt and fair

Jerry Johnson and his crew at Force One Construction did a wonderful job replacing our drought ravaged front lawn and landscaping. I told Jerry that I was interested in reducing our water use. Jerry designed a yard that exceeded my expectations. I now have a yard that I am proud of again.

The customer service was excellent. The crew showed up promptly at 7:00 am every morning and worked long days. The job site was left clean at the end of each day. Jerry responded promptly to every phone call. The job was completed timely for a fair price.

Spreading the word

My wife and I purchased a brand new home in Elk Grove and with that our backyard was a dirt lot. By the time we got around to talking about landscaping it we now had weeds up to our waist. I ended up contacting 6-8 landscapers, Jerry at Force One being one of them. From the first time Jerry showed up I knew he was the right guy for the job. First he showed up on time which none of the others did and he was able to give me a quote on the spot which also none of the others were able to do. Jerry was very honest with me about what we could afford and still get our dream backyard. We had an idea of what we wanted and after he worked his magic we were left with exactly what we wanted only better. I am already spreading the word to my friends about Force One and when it's time to do my front yard I will be calling Jerry again.

Beautiful yard

Thank you Jerry for our beautiful yard.  When we first started this process it was very upsetting.  We had contacted a couple different landscape companies and they just didn't listen to what we wanted.  They would come back with their design and it was nothing like we wanted.  We finally got a plan close to what we wanted and the contract came back at a higher price than quoted and the work we agreed on was not right in the contract.  Then we found Jerry Force One Construction.  Jerry showed up on time for our appointment, listened to what we wanted and in no time had a quote for the work and explained what he would do and it was what we were asking for.  We called Jerry a day later and told him we would like to proceed.  Jerry then emailed the agreement and it was what he had quoted with the description of the work we had asked for.  Jerry was scheduled out 2 weeks so we set a date.  On the morning of the day we scheduled Jerry was knocking on the door at 7:00 in the morning ready to go.  We marked out the yard and they were off and running.  Jerry's crew are all very nice and conscientious.  The crew all work very hard and fast.  During the job we had to add some more concrete work.  We called Jerry he gave us a price and in no time the crew had it handled.  We now have a beautiful backyard cement patio.  The damaged areas of our driveway, garage and sidewalk were removed and repoured looking great.  Then the best  part the crew removed the lawn installed a beautiful waterfall and river bed with rock cluster throughout the yard.  Jerry's plant choice's were the finishing touch.  We could not be happier with the experience of working with Jerry and his crew.  We have received many compliments from our neighbors. Thanks again to Jerry and Crew.

Welcome back

Gonzalo and Roman accomplished our small job in one work day: replacing 23 plants, moving a hose bibb, and refreshing our bark in our back yard planter. Cleaned up after themselves, left no trace. Welcome back any day. Wish everybody shared their work ethic!

Professional and friendly

Force One's designs are unique and innovative. Jerry listened to our wants & desires and incorporated them into the final plans. The crew worked independently and quickly removed the turf and existing plants. Then installed a colorful drought-tolerant landscape in our front yard.
All in just 3 days! Jerry and his crew were both professional and friendly.

Very impressed

We recently contacted a few firms to have our front lawn removed and replaced with drought tolerant landscaping.  We were very impressed with the prompt response and our interactions with Jerry Johnson, President, Force One Construction.  He responded very punctually, gave us a reasonable quote for the entire project and provided a well thought out drought tolerant design.  His crew started and completed the work as promised.  Jerry always promptly replied to any questions or concerns during the project. He and his crew take great pride in their work.  We are very pleased with the results and can recommend him without any reservations to anyone looking to do similar projects.

Looks great

We used Force One a few years ago when they installed our backyard and were completely satisfied. This year we decided to remove the turf in our front yard and replace with drought tolerant plantings. We once again looked to Jerry for his professional help. He listened to our ideas, gave us a very competitive quotation and we decided to proceed with the project. The design that he had drawn up incorporated all of ideas and then some. He was extremely receptive to our choices of plants and his design incorporated them perfectly.

Once work began, his crew was extremely diligent, always on time, completely cleaned up our site at the end of each day and looked after every detail to our complete satisfaction. Our neighbors commented on how much detail was involved in making sure the rocks in our dry creek bed were placed "correctly". I also enjoyed trying my very poor Spanish skills and thank his guys for humoring my attempts.

We highly recommend Force One, Jerry and his crew and are happy to show our yard and talk with anyone about his work. Jerry knows he can give our name and number out as a reference and we are always willing to help answer any questions potential clients have.

Thanks Jerry for making our front yard look great!

Takes pride

We wanted to expand the usable space in our small back yard and needed someone who could seamlessly blend the surfaces and design elements to transition the old and new spaces. Jerry has a great eye for design and detail and gave us a very fair price. His crew was superb, and worked long, hard days to finish the project quickly without sacrificing quality. Jerry was responsive throughout the process and answered my calls promptly.  After the job was done and we had written the final check, we had a problem with some of the outdoor lights. He had someone out to fix the lights less than 2 hours of the phone call. He takes pride in his work, and we are delighted with the finished project.  We are pleased to recommend Force One.

I recently bought a house that had a large unfinished backyard. I came to Jerry with a vision that I had scetched on graph paper and him and his crew were able to turn it into a reality. The work they did to the last detail was top quality. Not only did they transform my backyard, but on rainy days they put in some walls and took out some walls to install doors on the inside of my home. I would recommend them for any project with your home!

I love it!

Jerry Johnson and his team @ Force One Construction transformed my backyard into a peaceful retreat. Jerry worked with me to design a functional space to relax and entertain. My backyard features a beautiful water element, pathways, extensive plants, trees and outdoor lighting accents. From design to install Jerry communicated with me every step of the way and my project was completed on schedule. I would highly recommend Force One. Jerry, thank you I love it!

Extremely happy

Jerry & his crew recently completed the last of 3 landscape projects resulting in what is now a picturesque, Better Homes & Gardens backyard.  2013: 1) installed raised seating using Tuscan-style retaining wall blocks surrounding the perimeter of large patio; 2) designed a small outdoor Japanese Garden Room using bamboo partitions on 3 sides of room, added shade-loving plants, pebbles, a pagoda and statuary & small bamboo/bowl fountain;  3) June 2014, converted a large, former raised garden area into a fabulous low maintenance, drought-tolerant side yard. The renovation first required the removal of excess debris, relocation of existing plants, supplemental drainage, install weed shield landscape fabric & drip irrigation throughout, added decomposed granite, rocks for dry riverbed & rock garden lined with small plants, shrubs & small flowering tree.  Each project started with my wish list of ideas & vision along with Jerry’s vision, knowledge & expertise in design, materials & cost to stay within my budget.  They always arrived on time, work long hours to complete the landscape projects in the established timeframe, plus great cleanup.  I’m extremely happy with my new outdoor living spaces; neighbors like the new look too.  THANK YOU FORCE ONE!  I highly recommend Jerry and his hard-working & highly skilled staff.

We highly recommend them

The Force One crews just finished our really big frontyard:  stone paths, border strips, dry cobble stream beds, irrigation/sprinkler redo, landscape lighting, drought resistant and colorful plantings, drainage rehab.  Very pleased w/ Jerry & his team's work!  The crews are friendly and accomodating to the needs of the homeowner during their work.  And they get it done quickly.  Jerry walked the project several times w/ us as we figured out what we wanted done.  We highly recommend Force One Construction and would be happy to talk w/ prospective customers.

Good quality masonry work

erry Johnson and his crew at Force One did a fantastic job replacing our old, worn out, redwood deck with a beautiful, raised, brick patio. It was exactly the look we were hoping for to compliment our existing brick built-in BBQ and other brick accents surrounding our front and backyard landscaping.

They were also able to bring the adjacent aggregate/brick cement work back to life by replacing the old brick with new to match the raised patio while saving us the cost of replacing all of the existing aggregate. Now, our entire backyard patio looks brand new! And Jerry's vision to install lighting around the raised patio pulled the entire project together beautifully!

The crew was on time, dependable, and did a great job cleaning up after the project was completed.

We couldn't be happier, and we would definitely recommend Force One to anyone looking for good quality masonry work.

Polite, quiet, and dependable

Force One's crew did a terrific job transforming our backyard. They handled everything: design, the removal of our old lawn and plants, preparation of the soil, cement work, masonry, and then the plant selection and landscaping to bring everything together. The workers were polite, quiet, and dependable. We are very happy with the results.
