Home had a major drainage issue because of original building issues. Kevin came out and discussed the situation with us in detail. He fully explained what was needed and why. It was completed on time and within budget. It looks far better than we hoped. Also, while working the project Kevin fixed a problem with a garden wall and did a fantastic job with it too. He has definitely earned all of the ...

Kevin came out and we discussed what I was thinking for the backyard. He offered some really helpful advice and suggestions for what we could do to make the backyard look good and yet have a functional gardening space.

I called River City Patio & Garden and left a message on a Friday.  Kevin returned my call soon after and I gave him info on size of sod job I needed;  he gave me an apx price and made an appt. for 1:00 the following Wednesday to come out and meet with me.  He never showed up for appt. and I never heard from him again.  I would give an F grade to anyone who makes an appt. and never shows up.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Gave a phone estimate only and made an appt. to come to my home.   No work was performed so THERE IS NO ADDRESS TO GIVE WHERE SERVICE WAS PERFORMED

River City is terrific to work with. Not only are they punctual and professional, but they do a great job! I have elevated sprinklers that spray my garden. I wanted to be able to turn the individual sprinklers on/off as necessary. Kevin installed faucets on each sprinkler to do that. He also showed me how to adjust my sprinkler heads on my own, which is REALLY helpful. He also repaired some sprink...

The initial contact was prompt and very promising. Next, the provider forgot about me and the job. I contacted the provider, reminded him I still needed the work done. and supplied measurements of the area that needed the straw. I was not really pleased with the work; the straw was not spread evenly and did not cover the base of the plants. I re-distributed the straw so that the base of the plants...
