Does anyone have a good recommendation for a Berkeley gardener? Thanks!

I have used Dinwoodie Landscape Services for twenty-five years. They are terrific -- they have their own assessment of what needs to be done and will also do what you request. http://tlcgardener.com/
We hired a gardener based on recommendations on this site, Jose Zamora from Zamora Landscaping. Because he is recommended in several posts on this site, we feel like we would be remiss if we did not comment on our experience with his work, since it has caused some fairly expensive problems for us to fix.
We hired Jose to build a back deck and completely landscape our yard. Although we really liked Jose as a person, and his team is very hard-working, unfortunately the results of the work was disappointing and far from what was promised. A few of the most important issues are:
We understand mistakes happen, but he has stopped replying to our emails and phone calls asking him for help fixing these issues, despite the fact that we have paid him in full. He has also not provided us with a final invoice noting that we have paid for the work.
We are really disappointed because we did like him and thought we had a good working relationship. Unfortunately, we are now in a position of having to redo a number of the things that were done just this year.
