Recent Review: Collegiate was referred to us by Wasco nursery. We provided Mike a description of what we were looking for in our patio (dimensions, purpose and intended use) and our budget. Mike designed exactly what we wanted. His suggested materials and layout turned out perfectly. He was engaged throughout the entire project and made sure we were satisfied all along the way. His installation team was professional and conscientious. We are extremely pleased with the patio and would highly recommend Collegiate Landscape. We will use them again

Recent Review: We had an existing, oddly shaped patio in a very uninviting backyard. The space is southern facing, did not have enough shade, and no visual interest. Our family never hung out in the backyard, let alone entertained guests there. In addition to the strange shape, the patio was surrounded by an A/B pattern of bushes -- yews and barberry (thorns!), all grown together like some kind of barbaric medieval hedge. We'd lived with this terrible back yard for about 10 years since we bought the place. On our own, prior to contracting Poul's, we tore out the bushes to "clear the slate", and then we stared at it for awhile, trying to imagine what it could be. My imagination said "outdoor rooms", but I wasn't exactly sure how to make that happen. After reading the great reviews, I called Poul's to get a feel for how they would approach a project that I knew was going be a challenge. On that initial call, I could barely explain what we were looking for, but the person on the phone listened politely and said we needed to talk with a designer. So they sent Andrew to meet with me and provide estimates. Andrew came with a lot of ideas, patience, and enthusiasm for the project. He came up with a plan that entailed keeping but expanding the existing patio. He gave us options that reflected the desired budget vs the "dream" and patiently answered questions and "what ifs" until we got where we needed to be. He also discussed ways to phase in the project over time to deal with budget constraints. Ultimately we decided to spend more and get the project where we wanted it to be so we could enjoy it right away. We put off lighting for example, but went ahead w/ expanding the patio and adding a pergola. I'm very happy with how it turned out. Like others have written, our designer was professional, responsive, punctual, and knew his stuff. He has the skills of a landscape architect, but pays attention to the details, such as my desire for low maintenance plantings, and he thinks about what plantings are like now but also what will happen when they mature years from now. I know that should be a given, but I just want to note that he cared about longevity. He checked in frequently once the work began and had his crew redo portions of the paver work at his request, not mine, because he's a perfectionist, which of course is fine with me. He  took full responsibility for the quality of the work every step of the way. The crew was polite and from what I saw, they worked really hard. Once the project began, I never had any doubts it would be completed in a timely manner and that all details would be attended to.  There were a few problems, but that is to be expected with a project this size, and they were promptly addressed. A few of the pergola rafters were bowed. They were replaced at no charge and we were advised to hold onto the final $2k owed on the job until that was taken care of, which kind of impressed me. Instead of the pink roses specified in our plans, yellow ones were planted. That correction took a few weeks, but it did get fixed and the right roses were well worth the wait.  The old patio had some sinking pavers and uneven areas, which they regraded and fixed. The project included removing and reconfiguring some of the existing pavers, plus interweaving a consistent border around the new pavers and the old which makes  it seem like it was designed comprehensively all along. The beautiful transformation of the backyard has changed how the whole house feels. The "outdoor rooms" look amazing from the vantage point of our indoor rooms. I had my doubts about whether we'd ever be able to love our backyard, but we do.

Recent Review: Katlyn, whom owns and runs the company, is very hands on, listens to her clients, comes up with creative solutions, and always makes sure her clients are happy with the end product. She's a perfectionist and responsive, and does a job how she would want it done. Also, all of her projects, which have ranged in size from $2,000 to $10,000, have been on time and on budget. Overall, we've been very pleased with our decision to hire Evergreen.

Recent Review: We chose Georgetown because Tom was the most informative and helpful of about 6 contractors. (2 were recommended by friends) He explained things to me in detail and he kept our budget in mind the whole time.  Our final project is very different than what we started out discussing; but I love it!  We started out wanting French doors.  We ended up with French door sliders  due to  heating/cooling advantages.  Glad we did that! Tom found an Anderson door that I liked which was within my budget.  We really wanted maintenance free decking, but the cost was very high.  Tom was able to build a 240 sf deck out of Trex and all I have to do is hose it off to clean it up.  We wanted a pergola to keep the interior shaded and cool, so the pergola is made of aluminum -- also maintenance free.  They provided me with a CAD rendering of our project at no additional cost.  That sealed the deal for my husband!  It looked beautiful!  At the last minute, I happened to see a home where the pergola was at the opposite angle, and they were able to change it for me as well.  The crews came on time, did quality work and cleaned up well at the end.  They were polite and worked VERY hard, especially the pergola which had to be assembled one piece at a time.  When they left at night, they left some of their tools in a neat, safe pile, as we have a 7 year old in the house.  We opted not to have skirting around the deck and we plan to put a raised flower bed around it instead.  We wanted to put 2 light fixtures and 2 electrical outlets outside, plus 2 electrical outlets and a switch inside.  Tom arranged for an electrician.  He even had him fix a couple things inside the house.  (If I had known, I would have left a list . . . :)  )  I picked out the light fixtures and purchased them myself, but the electrician suggested where to mount them.  Good choice.  Tom and/or Corey came by periodically to look in on things and called me every day to be sure that I was happy with the progress.  I have never done anything like this before, and I truly appreciated their suggestions and expertise.  Things proceeded as planned.  I wanted the drywall to be a bit more finished in the dining room, so Corey had someone come out for that even after we made the last payment.  In my opinion, these guys are professional, ethical people who are interested in doing a great job.  I HIGHLY recommend them.  Some of the other contractors that we didn't use were not good listeners.  They wanted us to do things their way.  Tom asked me questions and then made suggestions, many of which were quite good and we adopted them.  Most importantly, they didn't try to pad the budget.  I gave them a dollar amount and they stayed within that budget. The material they used was beautiful and exactly what I wanted.  I wish they did patio work . . .   We plan to have them back next year to rebuild our old side deck.

Recent Review: Our pergola is beautiful. Brandon and his helper Jay did a great job and were great to work with, from his initial visit through the construction and cleanup. We are very happy that we chose Design A Deck. We are now able to sit on our patio in the comfortable shade our new pergola provides.

The project went well. They finished in 3-4 days, as promised. The patio looks great. And, although we still need to finish the pergola (we didn't are doing on our own), Pete's design and recommendation of how to secure the pergola posts were great. The front porch looks great, too.

Robert from Silver Hammer rebuilt our pergola. He was very thorough in inspecting the project, explaining what needs to be changed/repaired and what does not. He followed up daily on the progress. He followed up diligently, stayed on budget and delivered an excellent pergola for us to enjoy. I would definitely hire him again.

Chuck came over to our house and gave us an estimate for an 8' x 24' pergola in our side yard.  He came with his crew to do the job on a Saturday morning, and by late afternoon we had a gorgeous pergola in our yard.  The workmanship was wonderful, and so was his crew.  Polite and friendly.  We are very happy with the pergola and have gotten many compliments from friends and neighbors.  They did a great job for a really good price, and I am one to shop around beforehand.  I would recommend him and use him again for other projects in a minute.

Buyer beware.. The owner Rodney has no integrity! He will say whatever it takes order to get the job done. I should have know when he was almost 1 month late from the promise date of installation. The awnings are not what he promised and don't work as he says they would. When he was at our house he also pitched Adirondack chairs, which he said he wanted to trial. The were the wrong color and they weren't put together correctly. They are already falling apart. Once the sale is done, he does not answer for weeks. I had to drive to his office on a Saturday were he admitted that he messed up and that he would help us resolve the issue. We didn't hear from him for 4 weeks, so we had to wrote a letter. no response. After almost two months of mo response to any calls or emails, he finally sent an email turning the blame on us. He is unwilling to fix any of the issue described. I see that in the other reviews on his site others have had the same issues. I hope more people read this , so they don't fall into the same trap. It's nor surprise to me that he is rated a 3.5. I'm in the service business myself. I've never been more disappointed with a customer experience in my life. DO not trust this guy. it's almost creepy how this guy operates

I can't express how impressed my wife and I are with our new pergola from Design A Deck. Brandon and his crew displayed their craftsmanship, attention to detail and most of all their professionalism as they designed our Pergola. They are top notch and I recommend Design a Deck to anyone looking for any of the services they provide. Many thanks to them as we are looking forward to enjoying the new addition to our patio for years to come. Brad S. New Lenox, IL

Successfully completed. Homeowners completed demo and removal of existing wood deck. The new deck is the same configuration as the old, except to add a pergola over an outdoor kitchen. Archadeck added outdoor electrical receptacles, a natural gas line, a ceiling fan, and step lighting on four sets of stairs. The outdoor kitchen will be completed later by homeowners.
