“Because we needed an entire yard remodel, it was important to us to hire a design-and-build contractor who would be involved in the entire process so that everything, such as hardscapes, sprinklers, drainage, plants and installation schedule, all worked together seamlessly. Rick involved us from day one on every aspect of the design, wanting our input on everything from needs and wants to functionality to likes and dislikes.
We collaborated with Rick upfront on the itemized list of work that was to be completed and each item’s estimated cost. He tried to find the best value in materials in order to give us the look and function that we wanted, while being cost conscious. Because of this process, we were able to prioritize and choose which items to keep in the plan and which to remove in order to come up with a budget we were happy with, and we didn’t have any financial surprises when the project was completed.
The crew executed the plan perfectly. Cesar and Oscar often asked if we liked what they were doing, and wanted to make sure we were happy with the quality of workmanship as the project progressed. Many thanks to Cesar, Oscar and Andrew for their attentiveness and answering our many questions.
We had a great experience. We felt like we were listened to and that we had a great deal of input in the process. Every day we walk into our new backyard and say, “Wow!” Thank you so much, Rick and team.”
