    "Phillip contacted me right away and arranged a visit. I showed him a sketch of a retaining wall with an inclined walkway to the lower back yard and an extension of the driveway by 14 feet using the wall as a base. He gave me a detailed estimate and explained what extra costs could arise, although none did. The workers were on time, worked diligently every day and were very professional. They built the wall exactly as I envisioned it and landscaped the back yard with sod and rock to control the flow of water through the yard, which had been causing erosion to the point that we could not use it. Now our back yard is more beautiful than it has ever been in the 30 years we have lived here."
