+10000 for this thread.

For moving you should add Mission Movers, a relative of mine used them and reported great results -- well paced movers, very careful... even used moving blankets and plastic wrapped the furniture.

I think it was a bit over $500 for a 6-hour job with 3 movers (and included the truck).
Once you go 3-car garage... your junk can never go back.

Thanks so much for this list!!  Awesome!

I'd like to also add that I got this landscaping contact from TI:

KS Landscape Design - Andy Kang is the main contact and he can be reached at (949) 285-5359 or ks.landscapeanddesign@gmail.com


I'm currently with them and it's been a terrific experience so far.  Everything is nicely disclosed up front and they pay very close attention to all the crazy association do's and don'ts. 

I've heard horror stories from people (my Irvine hair stylist tells plenty of stories) who just picked any random landscaper and ended up having to dig up a bunch of stuff they installed because they couldn't get the Irvine HOA to pass the landscaping permit.

I would be sweating bullets every night over the HOA but I got KS Landscaping so I am just sweating bullets over the interest rates and escrow.   :P

I'm glad you have good experience with KS landscape design and thanks for sharing.  I'll add them to the list.

I had KS landscape design on my list originally but due to mix reviews I didn't list them here.  http://www.talkirvine.com/index.php/topic,2707.0.html

Thanks for sharing that.  I didn't know there was a thread about them.  Andru has been my contact for the project.  I have met his father, Abraham a couple of times.  I had some of my own ideas for landscaping and they were willing to work with me to see if it will fit into the final design. 

I'm still in consultation phase and won't go into actual construction until March.  Their pricing is reasonable for my yard size.  I know a friend of mine who purchased in Great Park with the 8000 square foot lot is also using KS Landscaping too.  I will keep the forum posted should anything arise.

I'm routinely review and updating this list and thanks all the feedback.

I just realize Jefferson Rand Landscaping was recommended by bones. 


We used Jefferson Rand and was very happy with them.  It's owned by an Asian woman and they have an in house landscape "designer".  Try giving them a call.  714-253-3167.
http://www.talkirvine.com/index.php/topic,3893.msg60093.html#msg60093

So bones, your are not using Jefferson Rand for your PP home this time around?

This thread/list is great!  Thanks so much.

However...  if you (or anyone) happens to have put this all into Outlook or some other address-book software and could export it as vcard files, that would be super-amazing so anyone could just import these into their computer or iPhone/Android!

That would be great.  I'm pretty sure it would be easy to convert a spreadsheet (probably saved as CSV) to vcard.
