Homeowner Enjoys New Retaining Wall

Angie’s List member Bob V. decided he wanted a retaining wall built in the yard of his Villa Hills, Kentucky, home. After obtaining three estimates, he hired highly rated Smith & Jolly Landscaping & Design in Alexandria, Kentucky.

According to Bob, it took about two weeks to build the wall and complete the project once it began. He adds that since he allowed the crew to store the equipment and supplies on the property, he expected he wouldn’t be able to use his driveway during the work. However, he says they impressed him by carefully leaving most of the driveway clear by the end of each day so it was still usable.

He also appreciates the team’s professionalism.

“The workers I met were professional and courteous in answering my questions,” he writes in a review of the company. “I didn’t find a lot of trash in the yard after they left for the day while the work was in progress. There were no complaints from the neighbors.”

Though the company’s estimate was higher than what other companies quoted him, Bob says he’s happy with the $13,500 job.

“I am very pleased with the result and think it was well worth the cost,” he says. “I think it definitely improves the value of my home.”
