Absolutely delighted with the outcome-the backyard looks wonderful; the creek beds are attractively laid out; downspouts exit underground at the creek beds; the crew was respectful of all the plants and replanted those that needed to be moved. Areas were resided and/or mulched. Added to this was excellent cleanup throughout the process. The crew was great to work with as was David Arias. Many than...

The staff of Drainage and Erosion Solutions is great! They called me the day before the appointment to confirm it, which other companies do not do often. In addition, on the day of the appointment, Rob R. called me to let me know that he was on his way. I really like that the staff of this company is so responsive and professional! When Rob R. arrived for the appointment, he looked at the side yar...

Jeff came to evaluate job on Dec 1. He sent an email with an overview of job, without details, a total price, and a request for 50% down payment. Drainage and Erosion refused to respond to my questions, ever, despite two emails ad several phone calls. I wanted to know how many workers and how many days, plus a few other details. This is a reasonable request for a job they estimated at more than $2...

We contacted Drainage and Erosion solutions to help with storm water ponding in our back yard. Pablo came to our house to see the job and to write an estimate. We never received an estimate even after I contacted the office and the estimator THREE times after he had visited our home. I can only assume that our job was not large enough for them to do, but we were never given an estimate or a reason...

We made an appointment six weeks in advance for a 4:00-5:00 estimate ( first available); no one called to confirm; when I called the day of the appt. to confirm I was told they did call but did not leave a message. Next I was informed there was a possibility the tech would arrive at 3:30; when I explained I was at work and 45 min. away I was told they would have the tech call me. 'Dave' called and...
DESCRIPTION OF WORK Requested an estimate
WORK COMPLETED ON 12/12/2018
Waited over 4 weeks for an appointment. The rep came out and took a look and we had a good meeting. He said he'd get me an estimate in a few days. It's been 6 weeks and no further contact from anyone at the company despite me repeatedly calling and emailing. Not sure what happened over there, but I wish I had gone with another company and not wasted 10 weeks. It's a shame, they did a great job ins...

WORK COMPLETED ON 11/02/2018
We first contacted DES in early August 2018 based on the positive Angie’s List reviews we read (and seeing that most negative reviews were due to unresponsiveness), we should have relied more heavily upon the negative reviews. The administrative assistant who schedules the consultants was very responsive, indicating there was a 4-5 wait for an appointment, which was fine for us as the work we need...
DESCRIPTION OF WORK Regrading, landscaping and hardscaping
I was looking to hire a company to do something about my basement flooding and drainage issues in my yard when it rains. The person who came out for the assessment was condescending and unprofessional. It was very clear from the beginning that he didn't want to do the job. It seemed like he had somewhere else to be. When he came into the basement he didn't even look around to assess what needed to...

Jessie came out to inspect our basement and backyard. He was very friendly and punctual. He said that he would send us an estimate by the end of the day. We provided him with our email addresses and verified that he had them written correctly. A week later we still had not received an estimate. I called him twice and sent an email and still no response. I called the main office and was told that h...

WORK COMPLETED ON 06/20/2018
Set an appointment for 10-11 AM. They never showed. Called at about 9:45 to let me know they were close but needed to see someone else first. It would be 30-45 minutes. They did not arrive until almost noon, and by that time I was already gone. Simple rule, if you can't even show up for the initial appointment on time, you don't get the job.
