We moved to an eight year old house last fall that never had landscaping beyond a handful of mostly scraggly trees the builder planted. Not a single bush or landscape bed existed anywhere. There also was no deck or patio, just a rickety set of steps going out the back door. We needed LOTS of help! From the start we were very pleased with the professionalism, promptness, and quality provided. While the plan was detailed enough to make a decision and understand what we were getting in terms of design and plants, we never envisioned the extreme level of quality and attention to detail we would receive. These guys went above and beyond at every turn. We had three trees in the front yard with no mulch beds around them, and they mulched around those trees. That was not in the quote. They removed three dead and dying trees, also not in the quote. Most importantly, they delivered on the plan perfectly. They repaired our brick paver sidewalk, and filled between the cracks with a poly-sand so it looks like a completely different sidewalk, and very beautiful. They installed a well-constructed drainage system in an area that needed better drainage - not detailed in the quote, but a very much appreciated and professional touch. Every landscape bed, plant, shrub, and tree was installed perfectly and exactly as planned. We are extremely happy with the quality of the plants. Chris Stocker was gracious in working with us to change a few of the plants on his thoughtful landscape plan to accommodate our personal tastes, and we appreciated that. We chose to go with a composite deck, and it is handsome and well built. The deck steps down onto a stamped concrete patio which is also beautiful and very well built. The patio is surrounded on three sides by a wooden pergola to provide shade, and I know the guys spent time studying the path of the sun so we would get the maximum shade possible at the hottest time of the day. Very good! The final detail was a landscape lighting package for both front and back which provides just the right amount of light and a wonderful, warm ambiance for enjoying our new surroundings in the evening. In summary I would say two things: first, well done to Chris Stocker and Atlantic Ridge, and once again, thank you!! Second, we could never have envisioned how beautiful this could be on our own. We put our trust in Chris Stocker's vision, and the craftsmanship of his team. They met and exceeded our expectations, we are delighted with the final result and wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
