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.
