What to do with a pile of rocks.....

Have you ever looked at a pile of rocks and wondered what to do with them? Let me tell you right now, I do it every day.

You see I love working with rock. More importantly I love building walls out of rock. I have great equipment at my disposal to take a pile of boulders like you see here in this picture and transform it into a beautiful wall. 

It may seem as if I am tooting my own horn here just a bit, but I really do feel as if I have an eye for placing boulders in just the right way to create a wall of rock that appears to have been there for hundreds of years. 

With the my equipment I can take a pile of rocks like this and turn into a wall like that in just shy of 4 hours. Yep that's right 4 hours later we were raking in the finishing touches. So don't think that it will cost an arm and a leg and take a week to complete. With clean up and reloading the equipment we were in and out in just over 6 hours and the customer was ecstatic that his bill came in under $2000.00. Plus we graded out his driveway just because we had some time to kill. Have a super day and I'll see ya back here tomorrow!

Water Features for sale....

Have you ever wanted a water feature?

I know lots of people who do. Imagine that....I build them for a living.

Here are some of the myth's surrounding water features.

  1. They are expensive
  2. They are hard to maintain
  3. You have to tear up your whole yard to install one
  4. They only Last a couple of years and then.....
Let me dispel those myth's by telling you

  1. Not with us: Usually we can install a 4 tier water fall up to 30 ft long for under $3500.00
  2. Not Ours: We design our water features to be low maintainance. No need to call us back for "Winterizing"
  3. We Don't: We have modern specialized equipment that does virtually no damage to existing yard. We can work in a 20' area quite nicely.
  4. Not these: The materials we use in our water feature installs are top of the line. We DO NOT cut corners to bring you a less expensive end result.
Ok...So here is the deal. I have found that we can generally install a complete water feature in about 8 to 10 hours. We charge accordingly and do not "milk" the job. If you get a quote for a water feature that is over $5000.00 you should really look at why it is so much. Like I said ours are consistently running between $3000.00-$4000.00 using top shelf materials. If in the bid process they say it will take a week to install the may want to take a look at that too. Unless you have a massive project their should be no reason for massive costs. Information is king. Have a fantastic day!

Geting it done with the right equipment

My father was a brilliant man. He told me when I first started my business back in 2005 that you can't do today's work with yesterday's equipment and be in business tomorrow. That is why we spent the money to get modern equipment for the work we do. Whether we are building a retaining wall, sculpting a hill for a water feature or cleaning up your property. We have the equipment to get the job done. Come check out our website to see what we mean!
