    Outdoor Contracting
    We had the pleasure of working with Outdoor Contracting over the past year on our landscape project. Our project was very complex and required someone who could help us consult, design and implement a custom project and Bill and his team were a perfect fit and up to the task. Adding to the complexity, Outdoor Contracting had to pick up the pieces from a failed attempt by our previous landscape designer making the project even more complex. If you have a complex project which no other contractor will touch, then Outdoor Contracting is right for you. The project consisted of designing an enclosure for our back yard which included custom concrete form walls, custom aluminum fencing, pedestrian gates, a cantilevered driveway gate, stepping stones, and beach pebbles. In addition, we had extensive lighting installation, irrigation, grading and sod installation, drainage remediation, electrical work, and installation of unique and unusual trees, shrubs, and plants. Bill and his team were very professional and spent countless hours over the past year ensuring that every detail was addressed since everything was tied together. They were methodical in their approach ensuring that each step in the process was thoroughly implemented before moving on to the next step. Bill even goes out of his was to install additional electrical, irrigation, and drainage conduits to ensure you are future proofed in case you want to expand the project in the future. I have never met a contractor that goes above and beyond in this manner. Outdoor Contracting shows up on time and as scheduled and they are very neat and clean in their approach, always taking time to make sure the job site is cleaned daily. We spent so much time with Bill and his team lead by Miguel that they became like family which made everything run smoothly. We were very happy with the overall quality of the work and the project ended up better than expected. We are thrilled with the final outcome!!! Outdoor Contracting���s motto is ���"We do it ALL, & We do it RIGHT" and I cannot emphasize enough how true this is. You won���t need to hire additional contractors to complete your plumbing, electrical, and landscape needs since Bill really does it all. If they can complete our project they can do anything and do it top notch. We would highly recommend hiring Outdoor Contracting and you will be very happy you did.

    Hyatt Landscaping, Inc.
    I cannot express enough my satisfaction, and indeed, pleasure, with Hyatt Landscaping. I did pretty exhaustive research online and through reference-checking, read every review I could find, and then met with my top 3. Hands-down, every step of the way, Hyatt was at the top of the list. And they did not disappoint, even though I've come to expect ANY project like this to have frustrations, snags and major cost/time overruns. Only a 2-week span of rain and freezing temps got in our way at all, and both the end result, and the process of working with them, was just fabulous. If I could give 10 stars, I would -- and especially to Cecil, who managed our project, and Heather, who from my first phone call, was extremely helpful and responsive. This is just a first-class act and I would eagerly hire them again.

    Dert Diggers
    Three weeks ago I called Brad to get a quote for work on a house that we didn't even own yet--we were only under contract. He came out the next day, provided an extremely fair estimate and constantly stayed in touch until we were ready to start work. We closed on the property Friday and he started excavation on Saturday. The equipment for the work was dropped off on Friday afternoon after closing. Brad is professional, courteous, and extremely respectful. We bought a house on the water that had been neglected for years. After 4 days of 12 hours a day he and his crew completely transformed the landscape of the property. Words do not describe how grateful we are to the craftsmanship and professionalism Dert Diggers brings. This is a house I was very skeptical to purchase, but Brad and my husband saw the vision of the future that I could not see. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

    Hyatt Landscaping, Inc.
    We contacted Hyatt because they did something similar in our last home and did an incredible job fixing our problem. They did not disappoint us this time either! Hyatt is EXTREMELY professional and knowledgeable! They go above and beyond! If you want something done and done right, Hyatt is the business to call! Thank you - Tony, Cecil, and Heather, and your fabulous crew!

    Dcs Demolition & Landscaping
    The communication was excellent at the beginning. They started the work did not follow directions and I personally went through the Job item by item. The communication was terrible after the sale. Wouldn't respond to calls or texts. Paid half up front to secure the spot. Paid them a progress payment half way through and the work essentially STOP. They came in the middle of the night and picked up the trailer and tools and VANISHED. Continued to call and text never heard a word back. NOT to be trusted.

    Sergio and his team did and outstanding job. One of the thing that I like the most GHTlandscape is the communication, Sergio keep me informed very often of any progress on the job site. I would recommend GHTlandscape to any type of landscape or grading work. Than you very for a great work. Dennis G

    Hyatt Landscaping, Inc.
    My experience with the Hyatt team was very favorable. I was dealing with significant drainage issues and associated soil erosion. The work encompassed the installation of two catch basins with associated river rock and piping, as well as site grading. The Hyatt team was very diligent in undertaking and completing the job, and I am very pleased with the final work product. This included a last minute change of scope in the job which was incorporated and handled nimbly, including very constructive feedback and suggestions from the job manager, Tony.

    Outdoor Contracting
    Pros: - The quality can���t be beat ��� our job was done thoroughly and carefully - They completely solved our drainage and erosion issues - The team is helpful, polite and professional - They���re the only business in town I���d trust to handle this kind of major issue; they definitely know what they���re doing - Our yard is more useable than it���s ever been, and the work they���ve done is issue-free and fantastic Challenges: - Our job started much later than expected, during a time period we���d identified as challenging for us - The job took longer than estimated - We had some communication issues close to the end of our project that were extremely stressful We had a really difficult time finding a company to deal with a major drainage issue we had in our back yard. Water from outside of our land had knocked down our fence on both sides, and we had a sinkhole that was expanding and starting to suck in the trees around it. We needed an expert to come in and create a plan to deal with the water runoff and repair all the damage to our land. Outdoor life was the only company to confidently provide us with a plan of action. It's worth the money to have them come out for a consult (and it���s credited to your job if you select them). Bill took his time looking over our land (and the areas the water was coming from) and evaluating our challenges. He and Renee were conscious of our concerns (we didn't want to lose many trees, and wanted to keep our basketball half court) and really knew how to address the challenge. We ended up getting a series of 3' pipes sunk under the ground, with a drop inlet on the outside of our fence. We also had our fence repaired, with a gate added, and a rough dog run installed (a last minute ask from me, as we have two large dogs who soak up mud). When work was completed, erosion fabric was added to our problem areas and grass seed (along with straw) was laid down in our whole yard and the areas of our front yard that had been damaged during the project. We had some challenges with our timeline for getting work done. Know that you will need to put a third of the estimated project cost down in order to get on the calendar, and delays may occur. Our work was initially scheduled to start in Feb/March of 2017, however, work did not begin until July. It���s covered in the contract that they���ll reach out about a week before work can begin, but we did find it challenging to figure out our summer schedule as the months wore on. We were given a few different reasons why our job was delayed, which was frustrating for us, but we knew the company was in high demand when we contracted them. The crew was professional and conscientious. They took their time to do the job right. There were a few surprises for us (required dirt and rocks were dumped in our front yard, without any input from us, and sometimes we were unsure when we���d have workers at our home and when we wouldn���t). They always took time to answer any questions we had. We were surprised by how much of our backyard ended up being torn up (almost all of it). It may be obvious, but don���t be surprised by how much loose dirt and mud will be involved in your work ��� it���s more than you expect. Close to the end of the job we did get frustrated with communication issues. It wasn���t clear how much work was left to be done, and which other concerns would be addressed. After walking through the job with Bill and Renee (the owner), I had to create a bulleted list, which we then used as the scope of work remaining for the project. Once we had this list, things flowed much more smoothly. They really went above and beyond laying the fabric and the seed, and grading the slope of our backyard to minimize our erosion issues. We would definitely work with Outdoor Life again. They did great quality work, and overall our frustrations were minimal for such a huge project. I would recommend ensuring that your scope of work is itemized during the contract step, so if your job starts later you can refer to it for specifics instead of an overall concept. Also, set expectations for your comfort level at the first meeting ��� I would have preferred an itemized punch list covering our expectations, like we ended up creating at the end of the project. Be patient and prepared for some scheduling frustrations, but if you want the best work, I recommend going with these guys. We waited to until our yard (and the work we had done) went through a few good soaking rainstorms before writing this review. The work has held up to the everything mother nature has thrown its way. We've also included some before and after images to show off this great work.

    DECORATIVE CREATIONS INC
    Kelly with Decorative Creations was the fourth person I had come look at my yard. The first two estimates came in at a low five figures and the third guy didn't know how to keep appointments. All of the companies came up with similar solutions, but by price Kelly undercut them by 75%! They had a high lead time (6 weeks due to being reasonably priced and good at their job), but as soon as they were able to start, they were finished in two days. If you want high quality work at a reasonable price (and don't mind waiting 2 months), hire this company.

    DECORATIVE CREATIONS INC
    The project went remarkably well. DC took care of ensuring no electrical lines were buried and started the work in the time frame promised. It was a significant amount of work that took only four days to complete. DC was efficient and on-site with no delays. Kelly (owner) frequently visited the site and made adjustments consistent with our discussions. When contacted, he was always quick to get back with me. DC left the site clean and exactly how I wanted.
