Recent Review: On the first day, the trucks rolled in with a Bobcat and a small CAT backhoe. The excavation began and was complete in 2-3 days. Gravel of varying sizes and perforated PVC pipe was delivered, as well as 12 pallets of pavers and support stones. We had selected the color when we signed the contract for the job. Once the excavation was done the hole was draped with a black thick cloth and gravel(s) installed in the hole (up to 2 ft. deep for the area with the drainage problem...Bill shot the elevations using surveying type equipment). The laying of the pavers was one of the fun things to watch as the small "cobblestones" fit tightly and look great, but do allow all water to percolate under ground and out of the area to drains placed in our front hill. The path then continued around the entire front of our house, where it was in a shallower, but well-prepared hole which had gravel and basecoarse in it. The effect of this paving system is stunning. Upon Bill's recommendation, approx. 8 large oak trees were removed from our front hill (steep, appx. 40 deg. angle) which would open up areas to plant and also give our large front porch the benefit of a lot more sun and sky. Next phase was to clear the brush and my own poor attempts at planting flowers and shrubs, and the new plants arrived. We had hundreds of bushes and plants, plus labor to plant them made up $15-18,000 of our budget for the job. The plants arrived in good condition, and the holes (all dug into the NRV yellow clay with ample "Radford Potato" sized river rocks in every shovelfull, were amended with manure and plant food. We had a huge amount of mulch put down, and the place looks fantastic. We fed Miracle Gro on everything for 2 weeks, and now the slow release plant food is "on the job".and was added to the amended soil at planting time. We have soaker hoses and regualr large sprinklers and are watering diligently to give the plants a good start (especially considering this summer's heat). We would DEFINITELY use GREEN ACRES, LLC. again (in fact, I'm dreaming of a cascading water feature...someday). Bill has over 20 years experience doing this, and it's obvious when you talk to him, when he presents a suggested plan for the property, and the execution of what he says will be done, IS DONE, and is done beautifully. We are very pleased and it WAS a DRAMATIC TRANSFORMATION of our "ugly stepsister" home into one of the prettiest yards in the area.
