I can tell you that people were really impressed with the work you guys did. It was a great idea to arrange the landscaping like you did! Also, I was very pleased with the work on my own property. In particular, Craig is very conscientious and pays attention to detail. His retaining wall looks great and the final grading of the track to the lake, below the garage and into the gate is a good compromise of slopes. Matt was cheerful and helpful throughout.

I have had a lot of work done on various pieces of property and I find Ralph's work to be exceptional.

Excellent! Thanks for all the hard work all round getting that permit. Thanks again. You did in less than two months what my Ottawa architect couldn't figure out in over nine months. Cheers!

Thanks John for a (septic) job well done.  Your team did a wonderful job and finished up with everything looking as well as can be expected until the grass grows back!  The driveway and parking area turned out better than expected.  Once again, thanks to your guys.

Ralph did a great job! Thanks for getting this done on short order.

Dear Mr. Yantha,

We want you to know how much we appreciate your patience with us last Friday. Not only did you have to wait for us, but then you had to pump up a tire. Actually, you didn't have to but you did. Thank you so much. We got our gardens built!
