"The whole experience was extremely positive. I like Dave Graham and his workers who are very hard workers. When we originally saw them working at our neighbors, they were building a big stone retaining wall. I saw those guys going up and down stairs carrying garbage cans full of rocks. They were incredible. I'm pretty sure ours is the same crew, and they're all amazing."

Q3 & Q4:

"I would tell other people that they are very thorough, and they keep you posted as to what's going on. If there are changes in the plans of what they're doing or whether they are going to have to charge you more for something, they tell you and ask you about it. They don't just charge you more. I got their name from our neighbors, and since we've had two projects done by them, we will have one more soon. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs their services, but I would like to qualify that by saying everything we've had done has been wood, deck work, or stairways though, so anything else, I can't speak on."

"Good quality work and reliable"

"Well, I suppose several things. When the work was completed, it looked great. It looks great now, and it satisfied a need that I had. The price was certainly in the range I was looking for, so that about sums it up, price and the quality of the work. The conversation with the owner, Dave, and all of the above was favorable. He took a look at the project and said that it shouldn't be a problem, so that was comforting."

"We just completed the a major overhaul of our deck, porch, and yard. After interviewing several land firms, we selected Atlas Landscaping. Dave is an amazing listener, and he truly understood our vision for the space. He created a lot of amazing elements that were in line with the direction we wanted to go and presented each of these additions complete with a estimate for the cost. Dave told me he could do the job in 7 to 9 days, and I was skeptical about him completing a job of this magnitude in so little time. Dave's crew of 8 were truly phenomenal. They were on time every morning, and they were the hardest working team I ever encountered, not a moment was wasted. They were polite, respectful of out home, and even worked on Saturdays. The job was 100% complete, exactly to our specifications in 10 days, and it was done with the highest craftsmanship. It's overall one of the best home improvement experiences that we've ever had, and we highly recommend them."
