We purchased a pond kit several years ago and finally installed it last year. The upper and lower ponds were hard plastic. First the upper pond sprung a leak and then the lower. All of our fish died in the heat this summer. Dwight came in and lined both the upper and lower ponds. Before that he shored up the foundation of both ponds. Everything has been functioning well and our new fish are thriving after about a month.

They could not find the leak but that was not their fault as we need to check the liner but I did not want to do that. They installed new rock and a new pump. They rebuilt the waterfall and they dug up the line to see if that was where the leak was coming from. They did everything that they could for the leak. The price was very reasonable. Two people came and they were always on time. The guys that came were very nice to work with.

We signed on Tom Flaherty and Texas Landscape Solutions to build a water feature for us and are absolutely thrilled with the beautiful end product we received. One of the best aspects of working with Tom and his team is their openness to client input, which stems for a clear understanding that they are there to execute the client's vision. Tom visited with us to ensure he understood our needs and desires, brought by samples, and even accommodated our scheduling needs, but was also flexible enough to accommodate spur of the moment changes as they occurred. More important, he checked back in the immediate days after the feature had been installed to make sure everything is functioning as it should, which was particularly heartening and reassuring. The only critique we have is that we had to follow up on a regular basis to acquire estimates, proposals, schedules, etc. However, Tom had informed us that he was busy with a number of projects at the time - a good thing in this economy in our opinion - in advance. Certainly when the time came to start the project, he ensured that he was immediately available and accessible. Overall, we are very happy with his services and execution, and plan to work with him on future landscaping projects as well.

DPREMIER PONDS & WILDILFE
Their response to all of this was to say that, it's not a wading pond and not to get near it, to just stay away from it and keep wildlife away from it, which is frustrating because it was called a 'wildlife' pond as its title. The slope of the dirt around the gazebo dock is very steep and not supported and will slide into the pond if we ever have any rain here again. They have refused to acknowledge this as a problem or suggest a solution. I have called and emailed them for approximately 6 weeks and the responses so far have been, "It'll all be fine. We'll talk to you in few weeks." The contract states that the pond is fully warranted. I asked them 6 times to let me know about the warranty and he told me, You demand the warranty information on the liner materials? In all my years I have never had a client ask for a warranty but since you did, it's 60 days from the date it was positioned in the trench (which was in August)."

When we bought the house nearly 9 years ago, the thought was always to put in a water feature. Eventually, we were financially able to have one built. I did a lot of online research and we joined the South Texas Water Garden Club to gather more information from actual water feature owners. I got three bids and selected Botanical Designs although it wasn't the lowest offer. Kevin listened to what I wanted which included a waterfall, a stream, and a place to put a water wheel I planned to build. He made recommendations which included things I hadn't considered and explained the pros and cons of each idea -his as well as mine. The beginning of the project was bumpy because Kevin was finishing up another project which took longer than expected. We adjusted the start date which gave him some flexibility and things were going well. The stream bed was dug, the pond was dug, and a huge rainstorm hit. We thought our pond was so eager to get started it filled itself. Unfortunately, the liner wasn't in yet so we had a muddy mess. Progress was delayed until the ground dried out enough to recommence. There is an amazing amount of dirt that is excavated from the pond area and usually, the crew hauls it off and disposes of it. I had been doing some landscaping with terraces (my back yard slopes up fairly steeply in one area) and asked if they could fill in the terraced area. They agreed and even leveled the dirt after they filled in the empty spaces. The workers ran across a large deposit of river rocks which had been buried some time in the misty past and there was an issue of disposal. Alongside my yard near the fence is where the utilities are run. I had begun building a dry creek along the fence because I couldn't extend my terrace blocks over the utilities. Jorge, the crew chief offered to use the rocks to extend my creek using the river rocks. I now have the bed extending from the street fence to a raised garden in my yard. Looks great. A win-win suggestion. After excavation and lining installation, Jorge took a great deal of pride in the placement of the stonework. He even spent time "tuning" the sound of the stream by experimenting with the placement of the stones. After everything was installed and given a test run, it was discovered that one of the filters was leaking. Several attempts were made to repair it before a manufacturing defect was discovered. We are currently waiting for the replacement and then the project will be complete. In the interim, I have put a few goldfish in the pond and have begun landscaping the surround. Everyone who has seen it says it looks so natural. Kevin took advantage of the landscape to create a water feature that appears to be a spring fed stream. The sound is so soothing and relaxing. It has been a pleasure working with Kevin and with his crew chief, Jorge. Most projects run into unexpected challenges and this one was no exception. When these were encountered Kevin or Jorge made suggestions on how to best cope. These adjustments did not affect the bid price. There was no requirement for upfront money but the agreement was that Kevin would ask for advances as the project advanced. The final payment is contingent on the replacement filter but it is expected momentarily. We enjoy our water feature - my wife has learned that the fish come when she feeds them. Good job Botanical Designs

He got my pump and filter working right away. IT WAS AWESOME. He gave me tips on how to keep my pump and filter running better. He did so in a way that I understood him completely. He was so patient and courteous. He also told me what I needed to do in order to remove the algae from the pool myself. I would recommend him to anyone. His professionalism is spot on.

Recent Review: Congratulations go out to Chris Westberry and his crew for a very nice job resurfacing my pool. Great care was taken in placing the staples as well as preparing the pool surface properly and sealing the deck and plastering. Chris monitored the progress every day sometimes staying well into the evening so that the job was done to his satisfaction. He answered all of my questions and helped me make good decisions. I will be using Alamo Pool & Spa in the future for all of my pool and pump needs. Now I have a pool that I can be proud of. I would like to thank him for a job well done.
