"There was a lot of ivy, the hardscape was falling apart, and the koi ponds were basically mosquito-breeding grounds," Davis says. "I had grading problems, and things were eroding. It was just awful."

Description of work "Red Oak developed a landscape plan for my backyard. They removed old brick, cement hardscape and old plant material. They also removed and replaced an original retaining wall, built an additional retaining wall, installed a paver patio, planted landscaped areas and lay sod."
Member comments "I could've never imagined that when I saw the landscape design on paper, they could transform my yard into such a beautiful place. The house's previous owners neglected the yard for 25 years. I had to either put a 'Band-Aid' on it and not be happy but keep my cost down, or just bite the bullet and rip everything out and start over. Red Oak worked with me and came up with alternative solutions at every step in the process. Even my neighbors commented on how dedicated and hard-working they were."
