"As new residents of the Las Vegas area, we looked to Angie’s List to help us locate a landscaper who could turn the clumps of red dirt and rocks surrounding our new home into a garden/spa retreat. Our criteria list was short – creative talent, integrity and project management expertise – but more than we imagined, finding a vendor who could meet these three requirements was more problematic than we anticipated. Several we interviewed fulfilled one and even sometimes two of the criteria but it wasn’t until we met with Mark McLoone of Living Waters that we knew we had found the right partner.

From the first contact, Mark impressed us with his professionalism. He asked the right questions and probed for more information to be sure he fully understood what we wanted, our budget and our concerns. The landscape drawings Mark came back with were beautiful and required only minor alterations. The proposal was also within our budget range.

Another indication we had made the right choice with Living Waters were the three sub-contractors Mark used for construction of the pool, the side yard portico cover and the fence around the pool. Adams Pools, Ace Awnings and Amazing Iron Works Inc. provided first class services and we never had to worry about a thing because Mark project managed the entire process. Like Mark’s landscaping project, this work was completed as scheduled, the crew was polite and the work space was always left neat and tidy at the end of the day. After sales service was equally as important to us and once again, Mark exhibited his professionalism and integrity. Phone calls were returned within the same day; as necessary plants were replaced without question; and gardening advice was always plentiful. The completed project was more perfect and awesome than we could have ever imagined or hoped for and has added value to our home. Without hesitation, we highly recommend Living Waters for any such projects."

"Mark and all his staff were professional to a fault and very reliable. They listened to what we truly wanted and modified the design to meet our mental picture. The end result is an inviting backyard retreat. The cost for having our backyard turned into this lovely retreat, designed by Mark, the owner, was worth every cent we spent. I would highly recommend this company for all aspects of hiring an honest and quality contractor."

James C.

"We met Mark at a landscaping show and were impressed with his work and personality. We bid out the project to two companies, and LW produced by far the better design. We worked and tweaked the design several times to arrive at a design we really liked and could afford…and Mark worked closely with us making adjustments along the way. He used a landscaping program that allowed him to create 3D movies of the landscape design and then uploaded to YouTube. This was extremely helpful so we could view (and have friends and family view) the designs and evolve our thinking. LW then handled all correspondence and approvals with the HOA…which was a huge benefit. Mark was on site every couple days to inspect the work and usually was more critical than we were. He has a very high standard that he expects his projects to meet…and boy did they!

The nice thing about working with LW is the personal touch they provide. When I visited some of the projects they had done, I noticed that these customers dialogue with Mark like he was their friend, not just a supplier. That personal touch is what sold me on working with them. He probably isn’t the cheapest (although certainly very competitive), but he produces high quality work that he stands behind and will fix any problems long after he has received his final payment. He worked with us very closely, helping craft the design that met our dreams AND our budget. It turned out GREAT! I would highly recommend Living Water."

"They did an incredible job!! They removed grass, etc. from the back yard. They replaced with desert landscaping with lights and built around palm trees and added a waterfall near the pool. They also added pavers in the back and a patio. Also did pavers along the side of my house and built a planter in the front. They were referred to me by a friend and I am so glad I had them come out for that initial consultation. Mark put together a fantastic video presentation that blew me away!! They did everything they said they would do-there were no surprises-no hidden "oh by the way" add on charges!! The work started when they said it would, and finished when they said they would finish. I am very, very, impressed and would highly recommend them to anyone who is contemplating a remodel or upgrade to their yard!! Thanks so much, Mark!"

Mike H.

"Mark and his crew from Living Water did a SUPERB job. We had Living Water demolish a previously installed fountain from another landscape company. Mark took on this job with a great attitude and the determination to do this job right. It was not a small task! He designed and installed a new water feature with surrounding landscape that is beautiful. Mark did what he said and even exceeded our expectations! We also had him add some additional plants, check the irrigation and drainage issues. Living Water did an excellent job in all areas. Mark stayed in touch with me regarding the schedule and any changes. He and his team are very professional, pay attention to all the details, and are very customer focused. Thank you for our backyard paradise!"

Tami B.

"Mark, in conjunction with Adams Pools, designed our whole backyard including landscaping, patio, fire pit, BBQ and the pool. We were kept very informed throughout the whole process, as far as dates of completion for each stage, pricing, and what to expect. Mark and Bernie did a great job in helping us to design the backyard and making our ideas and visions a reality. Mark also designed a virtual backyard which we were able to view on our computer and make changes to. This greatly helped us to get an idea of what our yard would look like, especially since we started with just dirt!! I would highly recommend Living Water and Adams Pools to anyone looking to complete their yard."

Crystal C.

"Mark, Christine and their crew were fantastic. Our backyard was completely redone and puts a smile on our faces every time we look out the windows. They did a fantastic job and do come highly recommended. A big thank you, Mark."

Mark made it clear that he would do whatever would make us happy, and he fulfilled that. He always returned calls promptly and did his best to ensure we were satisfied. Great work Mark, and our compliments to your crew. All were professional, courteous and helpful. We also appreciate your patience and willingness to rework our design, no less than 3 times, at our request due to budget changes. Thanks again and we'll definitely refer you.

Gene W.

I just wanted to write a quick note to let you know that we are completely satisfied with our Living Water landscape project; in fact our yard greatly exceeded our already elevated expectations. Mark took the time to listen to what we wanted, and offered respectful suggestions to help improve our vision. His professional crew then took over and, under Mark's careful personal supervision, made that vision a reality. Their quality craftsmanship shines in every aspect of our yard, from the superb flatwork and retaining walls, to the water features and extraordinary firepit conversation area. The plant selection and placement completed our outdoor space to perfection. I would not hesitate to recommend Living Water for landscape projects of any size or scope. I am sure that future clients will be as happy with your hard work and quality results as we are.

I had my backyard landscaped by Living Water Lawn & Garden, they did an incredible job. I was very impressed with the efficiency, follow through and great design that I received when working with Mark and Christine. They always got right back to me when I had questions or concerns. They completed the job on time and I love how my backyard looks now. The trees and other plants they suggested are beautiful. The pavers and retaining wall stone work looks like something out of a magazine. If I need more landscape design/work done I will definitely call them first. It was a pleasure working with them.

In the fall of 2008 I contracted with Living Water Landscaping Company to redesign my front yard. I am writing this letter to express my satisfaction with the job done by this company.

Throughout the entire project this company was most impressive. The workers reported to the job site on time. They were respectful, hard-working, and knowledgeable about their responsibilities.

The site supervisor was responsive to my requests and attentive to the questions and concerns I identified regarding how my front yard originally looked. The supervisor consistently met with me at all agreed upon times, listened to my requests and took appropriate actions. I was never left out of the loop regarding the recreation of the front yard. And every request I made was acknowledged and acted upon.

As a result of their level of professionalism I now have a front yard I am most proud of. For years I felt that my home was the least attractive on the blocks. Now, I have a front yard I am proud of. I have no reservations in writing this document on behalf of this outstanding company.

Most honestly,
Dr. Linda M. Griffith

I had my first contact with LWLG at the home & Garden show at Cashman cntr. I was in the market for; as I'm sure we all are, "a good Landscaper". I hate to be pushed into anything!!!! I spoke with a man. I, being a woman, felt already at a conversational disadvantage. He was first and foremost, knowledgeable about his "product and service". I spent 15 mins. talking. He did not ask me for my name or phone (as most do at these shows..) I was given sound advice about searching for just the right Landscaper "fit" and not being too hasty with my choice. Not feeling pressured, I left with a favorable Memory of the experience. I visited 4 other landscape companies; while at the show.... but.........LWLG Stood out .......I finally got my yard done "sculpted with my personality". The owner, Mark McCloon, is always available by cell!! If I ever had a question or a problem I could get it answered...on the SPOT!!! Not only that, he makes it a point to visit each job everyday. I felt like "I was his most important" client... I like that!!! I love coming home and just looking at "my creation" with LWLG's assistance. I am the envy of my neighbors...."you have a showcase home"...........I love hearing that !!!! Thank you Living Water..........

Working with Mark and Christine and the whole crew from Living Waters was great. They listened to what I wanted to achieve as well as informing me that a choice I may want may not be the best and why. We had a great working relationship they are very responsive to any issues that may arise. The crew working here were cheerful and efficient even cleaning up every night before they left. The result is great exactly what I was looking for and everyone that has seen the before and after is amazed.

I would highly recommend Living Waters without hesitation.

Warm regards,

I searched for almost a year for someone who could understand & execute the landscape design that I had in mind. Many contractors came & went, that never came back or responded after their initial visit, until I found Living Water. They were everything I wanted--- smart, reasonably priced, conservation minded, responsive & design savvy.
They did everything they promised in the time frame agreed upon & went well out of their way to make sure I was happy. I could not have asked for more. I would recommend them highly to anyone.

"They did what they said. And they did a very good job. This is the second time I have used them to do a project. It is real hard to find a good contractor in Las Vegas, so when you do you let everyone else know about them."

Mark G.

Mark & Christine,
We are so happy that we chose Living Water to install our landscaping for our Henderson home! This was such a positive experience from the initial meeting straight through the completion of our project. Everyone we dealt with, whether the owner, the office personnel or the landscape staff, were professional, courteous and very easy to work with. It was so enjoyable to work with a team that was creative and responsive and a pleasure working with a company that delivered on their commitments within the timeframes agreed to (and actually completed the project a few days in advance!). We really appreciated that your team made it a point to leave the work site clean of any debris at the end of each day. We strongly feel that we received an excellent value. We certainly will not hesitate to contact you for any future landscaping needs and are very comfortable recommending your services to our friends! Thank you for a wonderful job!

"Mark went above and beyond what I was looking for in our patio cover. Although his company didn't actually do patio covers, he took it upon himself to find the right company that could do what I had in mind. After the cover was done, his landscaping idea was then matched to the style of the cover, creating a backyard that suited both my family and our budget. The work was done in a very professional and timely manner and Mark always called me back if I left a message or was just easily reachable during the whole process. We'll continue to use their services in the future."

I have used Living Water on three residences now and every time, they produce a timely and reasonable estimate and good design. They follow through with quality materials, deliver on time and have always been excellent in following up on details and customer care. I would highly recommend Living Water.

"Enthusiastic, top notch designer. Hardworking crew that came early and stayed late. Project completed on time"

Three years ago my wife and I came to Las Vegas and purchased a new home. We decided to install a pool and increase the landscaping in the front yard that was installed by the builder. Mark at Living Water Lawn and Garden was recommended by a friend. It was one of the best recommendations we ever received. Mark made us a professional landscape plan for the front and back yards as well as my courtyard. Here is the best part: he and his staff are professionals; they showed up at the appointed time each day, cleaned up after they left and completed the job on the scheduled day. He came by a few times to inspect the plantings and provide special care where necessary. After several months it was apparent that a few shrubs would not survive. The shrubs were replaced at no charge when the season was appropriate. Today everything is thriving and friends and neighbors often comment on the look of our landscaping. I have recommended Mark to many friends and neighbors. Those that have used his services were all very satisfied with the quality of Mark's work and the professionalism of his staff.

"Amazing and professional at a reasonable price."

Lance K.

"Mark Maloone was extremely helpful and his crew was very efficant and hard working. They cleaned up at the end of every day. The project is absolutely beautiful. Thank you."

Roberta B.

"Mark was great! I really liked the detail in the design, flexibility to meet my budget and itemized the estimate so we were able to decide what we could eliminate in order to meet our budget. The workers were very polite and did a great job."

Julie H.

"Response was prompt. The owner took time to explain and review all aspects of the project. The work was started and completed in the time frame allotted. Office personnel was friendly and helpful. This company also does good follow up. I highly recommend them."

Julius T.

"We wanted a very lush, beautiful, unique backyard and we got all three. They really listened to what we wanted and designed and installed an amazing backyard. Very friendly and professional. Got the job done extremely fast with excellent quality. Would highly recommend."

Jill K.

The quality of workmanship and design exceeded our expectations. It's too late to change your price, but I think the overall value to our home and lifestyle exceed the cost of the work. Thanks for doing such a nice job.

Ed and Joann D.

"Dealing with Mark (owner) and his crew was excellent. When doing up the plan Mark submitted two options which was nice to see. After looking at four other landscapers plans we settled on Living Water based on price and options. When HOA approval came through Mark came out the next day with the foreman to go over the plan. The following day the crew arrived and got down to work. Project was completed in two days, quicker than we anticipated. Foreman and the crew were professional, very polite and made sure we were satisfied with what they were doing. If there was something we wanted changed they were ready to modify. The final product was better than we had anticipated."

"We obtained estimates from three competing landscaping companies: one recommended by our realtor and two of the top rated companies on Angie's list. We provided each company our budget, a list of trees and plants we liked, brick and paver color preferences, and a SNWA design we thought best matched our space and taste. Mark McLoone and the folks from Living Water returned both the best interpretation of the design based on our preferences and the lowest bid price (by about $1500). In fact, Mark's design exceeded our expectations and provided a design quality we thought was unobtainable in our budget range. My wife and I, after considering the design further, made a couple of suggested changes to better meet our needs and budget. Mark was more than willing to work those changes in and provide us with a new bid in very short order. He took our ideas and suggestions seriously and worked hard to incorporate them into the design with no trepidation or push-back. I think, in the end, we reworked the initial bid three times and were never met with resistance despite not being under contract at the time. The work took five calendar days to complete, however two of those days were half-days used to finish up phases of the landscape installation. During the first three days (installation of the hardscape) I was not able to be present and, as a result, did not catch a measurement error in the design until the evening of the second day. An extra five feet of yard depth was added to the design which made the patio disproportionately large compared to the yard and retainer wall when actually built. After talking with Mark and his foreman, Luis, we were able to redesign the patio on the fly and it was re-laid in less than an hour. I was able to be present for the remaining two days of work (plants, grass, and chip), which were completed the following week. We ended up with a few extra bricks from the retainer wall installation, and Luis and his crew added an extra level to a portion of the wall (a large planter) at our request, again on the fly and in very short order. After twice making changes and redoing work without so much as a word of complaint, I had to buy these guys lunch. Luis and his crew really took care of us when I know we were a pain in their...side :) During the job Mark and his wife, Christine, were out of town for a week. Keith Howard, Mark's second in command, took time away from much larger jobs to check on us and make sure things were going okay. He came out to the house the afternoon the job was completed to check on the work and make sure we were happy with everything. He gave us some tips and advice on how to care for everything and keep it looking new for a long time, and promised a follow-up with Mark when he returned the following week. Overall, from start to finish the project took about two months to complete and was well worth the wait. It was not without it share of stumbles, though, mostly due to hiccups in communication between Mark and us. I recommend talking to his wife, Christine, and using her as a go-between versus calling Mark directly. You'll get a quicker response that way, but verify with Mark when you see him in-person to make sure nothing was lost in translation. We can't say enough about Mark's foreman, Luis, who saved the day not once but twice, and Keith who stepped up and took charge in a pinch. We'll definitely be using Living Water again in the future to work on expanding our front yard and adding a few things to the backyard we had to take out of the budget for this build."
