Bill you were able to relay our vision of what we wanted to perfection! A special thank you as you delivered everything that was promised to us from the beginning. We could not be more ecstatic with the finished project. We made several changes along the way and you and your team, were helpful and responsive to those changes.
Dave and Nicole, a special thank to you for answering our million questions and moving the process to completion. You were always patient and willing to explain the process each step of the way and go the extra mile.

Dear Bill,

Now that summer is over, I wanted to write you a personal thank-you note for the wonderful job you and your company did on my backyard renovation project. Every time I look outside, I cannot believe that it is my backyard. The transformation is hard to fathom at times.

This past summer was the first in years that I spent so much time in the pool and yard. The overall layout you created is my personal vacation getaway. It is a great feeling to know that my family and I can escape the everyday pressures of life within a few feet of our kitchen sliders. When family and friends visit my home, they are speechless with the backyard. My yard is now referred to as “The A. Resort”. I am not sure what part of the project is my favorite. It is difficult to choose between the deck, spas, pond & streams, landscaping, pool area, waterfalls and of course, the slide and rock steps. I decided, I love it all. Bill, job well done!

The level of professionalism you and your staff exhibited throughout the project was refreshing and very much appreciated. After years of home improvement projects, this is the first time I felt compelled to write a letter thanking a contractor. From day one, you always answered my telephone calls and were always honest with me. In addition, your office always responded to my needs and your builders were always courteous and respectful of my family and home. Trust me; these qualities are hard to find in a contractor

Please take the time to thank, on my behalf, Mike, Linda, Melissa, Paul (The Shark), Pablo (The Demolition Man), Davie (the Artist) and all the other men that worked at my home. I look forward to working with you on the next phase of the project. The pool house! Happy holidays to you and your family.

Sincerely,

David A.

Bill,

The job I hired D&P for was to make my multi leveled narrow back yard a “pond” like paradise. Our requirements were a 16×36 pool, patio, diving rock, waterfall, fire pit, slide and a separate jacuzzi, which at first seemed impossible. This was not your typical installation.
From day one Bill had the vision, put it to a plan, and did everything he could to explain how it would all work and it all came together.
The first challenge was that there was no easy access to the back yard. We negotiated with my neighbor to allow us to use their yard to get to ours (at job completion, Bill built them a paver walkway which they are very happy with). Since trucks didn’t have access, they had to run dirt all the way from the back yard through the neighbors, then to the street.

Bills vision was to raise the pool 2 feet above ground and build it to help mitigate the hill he was building into. He also used 28 tons of moss rock boulders to retain and make it look natural. There is stacked slate on the front pool wall and fire pit to tie into existing patio walls.

The separate jacuzzi is a 6 seater which is also surrounded by moss rock boulders.

To wrap it up, Bill installed flowing plants and landscaping.

I asked for paradise and I got it. Bill and his project manager Dave really delivered quality products and came through for us. As with any large project in a difficult space, there are a lot of decisions to make and we did this pretty easily (I am not easy to please). And when there were any small issues, Bill and team addressed them professionally. If you’re looking to hire a professional team for a medium to large project, I would recommend them.

Yours truly,

Scott B.
