Greenlife Lanscaping /Construction did an excellent job landscaping our front yard! They also replaced the driveway, front park strips, and even installed new rock veneer and four posts to the front of our house. The work turned out incredible, on time and below budget. Jose worked with us every step of the way, including helping with the design, offering suggestions, keeping the workers focused and meeting with us periodically to make sure we were happy with the progress. Jose only wanted payment as sections were finished, on our timetable, and only if we were completely satisfied with the work. We're still getting compliments from passersby, a year after the job was completed, and everything looks great!
I would reccomend Jose and Greenlife for any job, small or large-He really felt like one of the family and we were very impressed with his professionalism!

We just finished a front yard remodel and I couldn't be happier. I have done a few large remodels and I have never worked a contractor with more integrity and pride in work. It began from the moment he called me (which was soon after I left my first message, which is very rare). Our project consisted of enlarging our existing front patio, enlarging and laying a new driveway, creating a new park strip and adding landscaping. As the project progressed, I changed a few of my ideas and added new projects, and Jose never made me feel like it was an inconvenience, I was always met with "we'll make it happen"! When the new stone we ordered arrived, it was not a perfect match (no fault of Jose's, just the uniqueness of real stone), I told Jose I could live with it and he said "no, it's not perfect and I won't let you settle". I have never had a contractor tell me not to settle. Our job came in completely on budget (even after I added a few extras), again, not something I have had happen in the past. I could go on and on! I enjoyed working with Jose and his crew. I can not recommend him enough and can't wait to have him come back and do our backyard!
We had our backyard and front yard recently completed by Green Life ...
They did an excellent job with all the work. Jose Millian is the owner. He has wonderful guys working for him in various jobs. Pablo is an incredible mason working with rock...Julio was the expert with our Cal-stone pavers. We had them execute our master drawings ...from the very bottom of the infrastructure to the planting of our gardens. They are incredibly easy to work with...anytime we had a question or concern it was addressed immediately. We are so so happy with our new yard and so grateful to have met and worked with Jose and his crew. If you are looking for a company with a great work ethic and pride in their customer service. Green Life Construction is the company to work with.
Jose Millan created art for our yard. We wanted to get a drought resistant garden, replacing the grass that had been dead for several years as we decided not to waste water on grass. We also needed to repave our backyard deck and extend it, and replace the sidewalk leading to our front porch. Jose came out, listened to our goals, made great suggestions, and sketched his vision while we talked. We could see that his sketches were what he could imagine with his artist's eye. We ended up with a beautiful front garden featuring a hill, a couple of Japanese maples, and plants that he took us down to pick out ourselves. He widened our sidewalk with beautiful stamped concrete. Our front yard went from an embarrassing ugliest on the block to the most beautiful. And all this work was being done while we experienced a lot of heavy rainfall. Jose scheduled his work around that, and we love the result. He and his team were very friendly and really professional. He worked within our budget and even did some extra work in the backyard within his original estimate. Jose and his team will give you a dream landscape. Now that we are done, we understand why all of his Yelp reviews are top notch, because he and his team are top notch.
Due to the excellent, professional help from Jose Millan, Pablo (his right-hand man) and the Greenlife crew..... our landscape project has become the hit of the neighborhood! The result is so outstanding, passersby stop to admire the design, and we are more than pleased to recommend Greenlife to all who ask for the name of the best landscape company around. As a result, we have noticed his crew and equipment at multiple locations throughout our community.
Soon after moving to our new home two years ago, we too searched for a landscape company that could assist us with ideas for our bare dirt lot. Luckily, we met Jose Millan who took us through a plan design which included paving, walls, lighting, lawns and plantings. Not only did Greenlife complete the work within our projected budget, ..the workmanship was outstanding, and the project was finished in the promised time frame.
Mr. Millan has returned to our home for additional projects, and we always find him to be professional, creative, capable and honest. We recommend him highly for any landscape construction needs.
We had a detailed landscape design that was done by another, well known San Jose landscaping company, who tried to double charge us for the design services and then ended up giving us a bid that was double the budget we gave them.
Enter Greenlife and its owner, Jose Millan. We gave him the designs and a very tight timeline to completely landscape a back yard that was nothing but dirt. He came back with a bid that was under our original budget and a very helpful, can-do attitude.
Greenlife turned our backyard into an oasis. It's absolutely beautiful, way better than we had imagined, and they did it on time and on budget. During the project, they didn't miss any appointments or milestones...not a single one. That was a first for any contractor I've ever worked with. They didn't nickel and dime us on any of the changes we asked for either. Jose was patient when we were indecisive, and he was calming while we stressed about changing things up.
Over the years we've worked with numerous landscapers and contractors. I have to say that working with Greenlife has been the best experience I've had with any of them, by far.
I cannot recommend Greenlife and its owner, Jose Millan, highly enough.
