Recent Review: I discovered that one of my ponds, fed by a stream and flowing via a culvert drain into a lower pond, had drained down to just a stream. It clearly had found an escape tunnel near the bottom of the pond and was draining into an underground stream that it had created. I called Wayne at Fairview Landscaping (I had previously contracted with him for other work) and he came out the next day to look at it. He clearly had solid knowledge about stream-fed pond construction -- something many landscape people do not have--and discussed what was happening and what would need to be done to correct the problem. Since he could not tell, until he dug up the area, how deep the underground stream was, what twists and turns it might be taking or what kind of soil he would find below the surface, he could not give me a firm bid. We agreed that he would bring in the heavy equipment, and dig up the area and then he could give me a price on either fixing it or, if too expensive, to just retuning it to the condition he found it. Wayne and a helper arrived within a few days with a backhoe, dug up the area, assessed the extent of the problem and recommended a solution that I could afford. Wayne was very conscientious about finding an economical solution. He repaired the leak, and left the pond area in good shape. I was surprised and pleased at how little damage was done with getting the backhoe into and out of the pond area. I was very pleased with the quality of the work, and the knowledge and professionalism of Wayne. He is a trustworthy and competent person.
