  • We needed to have a trench dug about 75' x 12" wide and 2' deep from the side of our house to the street.  We knew he was bringing out the large equipment and there was a minimum amount of cost involved.  So we decided to add on some other "heavy" items (side walk removal, stump removal, and other small trenches for downspout drains.  Bill was very responsive in his phone calls and following up.  He came out to the site before quoting us, sent and estimate.  The cost was exactly as the estimate stated.  We had no trouble scheduling the work, he arrived on time, him and his employees were all very professional.  They cleaned up the site well and we are extremely happy!

  • From my first meeting with Provider name locked. (the owner of Provider name locked. and Landscape) to discuss the various components of what was going to be a very large backyard renovation, Provider name locked. instilled in me a sense of confidence that he indeed had the experience and competence needed to execute and manage the many different “moving parts” involved in my project. Before meeting Provider name locked. , I interviewed four other contractors, none of whom seemed comfortable taking on this size project. But, true to his word, four weeks after starting demolition, my kids and I are enjoying our new backyard!

    As part of the overall scope of the project, Provider name locked. took the time to evaluate (and, honestly, improve upon) existing plans prepared for me by a Landscape Architect. Provider name locked. has a sixth sense about the placement of hardscape, as well as landscape, elements which combine together to create a seamless and very effective outdoor living space; he truly did make “my vision” come to life. His crews moved retaining walls and replaced them with a graduated, landscaped hill that now has beautiful hand-selected boulders and a new and recessed stacked stone wall; he replaced a square and boring tile patio with a much larger, two tier, sculpted flagstone patio, a 12’ stone chimney (designed by Provider name locked. himself, with an inset stone detail that makes my chimney unique to my backyard alone) and a built-in kitchen; he added a masonry fire pit and demi-lunar masonry bench to anchor the opposite side of the backyard. Provider name locked. carefully chose all of the different types of stone for each of the elements so that they would slightly contrast with one another, while complementing the overall sense of design. His landscape crew added the refinement of perennials which were carefully placed around the entire backyard and, then, finished the landscaping with sophisticated night lighting. To finish the backyard area, Provider name locked. designed and built a beautiful cedar pavilion with a Provider name locked. roof which wraps around the chimney. The result is stunning; however, the devil is in the details…isn't it. Taking on these details, Provider name locked. ’s landscape crew carefully measured the grade of my backyard and landscaped hill so as to ensure that drainage would not be an issue. After completion of the project and following a late summer thunderstorm deluge, we decided that the French drain which had been installed needed to be extended by 12 feet to properly manage the drainage issue. This alteration was made at no change in cost to the overall project (which highlights a point made in other reviews and which I will address below).

    Because access to my backyard was limited by space, the crews needed to drive a bobcat across my front yard (for several weeks) in order to carry the materials to and properly grade my backyard. Impressively, Provider name locked. thought about this is advance and included the cost of repair to my front yard with his estimate of the overall project, as opposed to “tacking it on” as “an extra” at the end.

    Personally, Provider name locked. and his crews were extremely respectful and very attentive to any requests or questions that I or my kids had throughout this entire process. They arrived on time and worked very hard. Provider name locked. was very communicative about the weekly (if not daily) plan of action, as well as any changes which had to be made due to prohibitive weather conditions. The parade of curious neighbors through my backyard has prompted many an unsolicited comment, from being amazed at the scope of the work which was completed within a four week period, to the undeniable quality of the work.

    Provider name locked. ’s approach to billing is, as he calls it, a “turnkey approach.” He was the only one of the vendors whom I interviewed to offer me a flat fee for the project. Whatever happened, the price did not change (unless a change was requested by me which altered the cost of an element…and, even then, a few de minimis extras just seemed to appear as if by magic).

    The one last thought which I would like to impress most upon the readers of this review is Provider name locked. ’s personal investment of pride in each of his projects. It is rare these days to meet a vendor who is so committed to personal service and quality craftsmanship, and whose crews respect him enough to also have this vital sense of ownership in their work.

    Thank you, Provider name locked. , for making this so easy

  • Our front yard was looking extremely ragged after a harsh winter. What had once been lush fescue had deteriorated into patches of green surrounded by valleys of dirt. The previous lawn service we had used kept their promise of eliminating weeds, but the remaining grass never had a Provider name locked. to cover the bare spots. With last summer's rains, we were suffering from erosion and the result was not pretty.
    This job seemed monstrous to us as homeowners, but Bill's expertise and team made it look easy. The goal was to level the front yard and to install fescue sod. The hard part was timing the job around rainy days so that they would be working with dry Georgia clay and not mud.
    After a few date changes, the crew eliminated our sad original lawn and leveled our yard all in one day. After the sod was ordered and delivered (8 pallets), they had it out of our driveway and on the ground the same day.
    Angie's List proved really helpful in the process of finding the right company for the job. We originally were speaking with landscapers who were going to have to sub out the excavating. The prices were really high for the same work -- about double what we paid Provider name locked. and Landscaping.
