Recent Review: Excellent work! Sean is very knowledgeable and helpful in visualizing a plan for your yard. We have a steep drop off and sloping backyard. Agape built two levels of retaining walls with a paver patio and fire pit between the walls. Several people in our neighborhood have had walls fail. We wanted to be sure these walls would be built correctly. Agape worked very hard to dig out the area, fill with gravel, and place geogrid. Joe and the other Agape people were some of the hardest workers I've ever seen. Agape specializes in retaining walls and they know what they are doing. We are very happy with the entire project! Highly recommend.
Recent Review: Dave and his son Josh came out promptly to give us a quote on the removal of the old wood retaining wall and replacing it with a new stone wall approximately double the height. A couple days after they visited we received a quote by email. We were considering doing some of the work ourselves but after seeing how reasonably priced the quote was we decided to hire them to do the entire job.They began work a couple weeks later during the hottest part of the summer. With temperatures reaching 100+ on most days they usually worked between 9 - 2. I would of liked to see them arrive a little earlier but understood they were coming from Eureka each day and with traffic it took them a while to get there. The quoted completion time was 1 week but it ended up taking 2 because of the extreme heat. I did not mind that they extended the completion time due to the heat. We had some unexpected costs during the project due to the slope of our hill but the price was still very reasonable. I would definitely hire them again.
Recent Review: Working with Kevin and his team was extremely easy. I typically dread working with contractors because I never know if I will get quality OR professionalism. I will say that Castle was a little higher than the other bids I received, however, I could tell from the moment I met Kevin that the extra cost would be worth it. He and his team were in constant communication with me throughout the entire build. They worked with pace but never cut corners along the way. Kevin would even send me pictures with updates while I was out on vacation. There are always unforeseen issues that tend to come up with large builds and it can be frustrating for the homeowner. Any concerns were outlined by Kevin on the front end and it made for less of a blow when these things came up (i.e. possible damage to my irrigation system due to digging the foundation). Once again not a big deal but I appreciated the heads up. I have held multiple parties and family gatherings in the past 2 months since the patio has been completed and I get so many compliments. I bet I have passed Kevin’s contact info off to a dozen people at this point. I highly recommend this company for your next big concrete project.

Recent Review: Better than I imagined. They used extra boulders on my property to build a retaining wall to hold back the material they dugout and re-positioned to create a flat area for the fire pit. Check out the photos. The whole team was great to work with. I would highly recommend you give them a chance to earn your business.
Recent Review: The job went very well, we called for an estimate and Ryan showed up the next day and gave us a quoate. After we accepted the quoate and were scheduled, it only took 2 days for the project to be compleated. Ryan called the next day to ask if we liked the wall and if everything looked ok. we have been very impressed with their professionalism and also the quality of their work!
Recent Review: This is the fourth project we have had performed by Sam's Retaining Walls. Sam and his crew are always reasonably priced, professional, timely and provide superior quality. Our first project with Sam, consisting of several retaining walls in 2008 still look as if they were just installed yesterday.
They used rocks and supported the wall. He took the wall down and restacked it. The mud was stopped. It went well.

Overall, I was very happy with my service. All the work was done well and in a reasonable amount of time. The handyman was very nice and accommodating to my requests. He was upfront about needing some extra time beyond the deal amount, but then he surveyed the tasks quickly, got all necessary materials and made good time getting through my list. He found a solution to problem with fitting a trim kit onto my cabinet, rather than telling me all the reasons why it wouldn't work. I was able to communicate with the owner through email, which is great since I am usually in meetings all day and not able to talk on the phone, so I generally don't take phone calls. Also, I was allowed to pay for the extra time and materials by credit card. It amazes me, in 2015, how many service providers in the St. Louis area don't accept credit cards (not an issue in East Coast cities). It was an additional 3% charge to use a card, however the convenience and earned miles make it worth it. I have 1 minor complaint. This provider usually starts at 7am and I told him a 7am start time was too early for me. I requested a later time and was offered 7:30, which wasn't much better, but I will take 30 minutes extra of sleep. Unfortunately, I didn't get it. My doorbell rang promptly at 7 getting me out of bed. I was not prepared (or dressed)....evidently the handyman was not told about the later start time. I would suggest they be more flexible with customer's schedules/needs. I would use them again. I have a couple larger projects in my home and they will be on my list to provide a bid. I have also provided their information to a colleague who needed a handyman who can do quality work.

ASAM'S RETAINING WALLS & HOME REPAIR
Hired Sam to replace an old wall of railroad ties that was falling apart. The wall was 75 ft long and about 3-4 feet high. Sam replaced it with concrete wall block. I contracted with him in November but he was booked up till March. I didn't mind the wait. He completed the wall in less than a week. The wall looks great. He did an excellent job, making sure to route a drain pipe properly, fill in with dirt for proper drainage around the wall, and seed and straw when finished. His price was fair. It was in the middle of 2 other bids I had.

After looking at three different bids from different landscaping companies we decided to go with Landesign. John and his team did a great of job of installing a three tiered retaining wall in the front yard, hard edging with rock on the sides of the house, sitting wall on the side of the back patio and hard edging with rock around the back patio. My wife and I were very impressed with the work performed and would recommend to friends and hire again.

Sam removed an old railroad tie wall and the tree that was causing the wall to bow. He replaced the wall with a gray stone landscaping wall. All work was performed on time with minimum damage to the surrounding grass. He cleaned up very well and handled all required permits with the city of Ballwin.

THIS COMPANY DID A VERY PROFESSIONAL JOB AND EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS. THE LAKEFRONT WALL WAS BEING UNDERMINED BY WAVE ACTION. THEY REBUILT THE WALL FOUNDATION AND FILLED IN OUTSIDE THE WALL WITH ROCK IN ORDER TO STOP FURTHER EROSION. THEY PROVIDED HIGH QUALITY WORK WITH TIMELY SERVICE AND AT A VERY REASONABLE PRICE.

Mike and his crew were excellent. We left the design up to Mike and it turned out beautifully. We had three tiers of crumbling dry stack rock walls and he replaced them with block walls, matching the blocks he used when he replaced our retaining wall a few years earlier. He also created a flat patio with seating walls and planters around a fire pit. Finally, he created a walkway connecting a retaining wall with the back deck. His crew was punctual and worked hard, even replacing the ground cover which had been displaced during the construction. The end result is lovely and much more functional than it was before.

They did a great job. The wall looks great, and Lawn Systems Inc. had a lower bid than the other 2 companies who provided higher bids for less work.

AJ & J Masonry Restoration & Chimney Repair
I suffered damage from another contractor overloading an old building roof, which bowed and cracked all four masonry walls of this detached garage building. J & J came to advise on damage and quote rebuild of worst bowed concrete block wall, and repair of cracks in other walls (mostly along grout lines). After the first contractor's carpentry subs repaired the roof structure and got the walls back to vertical, J & J came out and repaired all 4 walls by grinding all cracked grout lines and the few blocks that were cracked, and re-grouted all areas where needed, inside and out of each wall. Superb professionalism, and they're easy to work with. This is 3rd property where I've used their services. So glad I found them. You will be, too!
