    5.0 Michael V. Canton, NC

    I could not be more pleased with the entire project from start to finish. Quality, service, value, timliness, clean up, overall final appearance of stone steps......ALL were exceptional. Already beginning to work on a second project with them which I hope to have started and completed by spring.

    5.0 Greg S. Cudjoe Key, FL

    Gus did our water feature as well as our complete landscape. His vision and work ethic is second to none. He did everything and more that he promised. So refreshing to have someone show up on time and complete the work as promised. Great value for the cost. I would recommend Gus to everyone, great to work with. He is truly an artist.

    5.0 Alice H. Waynesville, NC

    Gus Higdon was very creative and resourceful in the repair of our backyard slope due to water/silt runoff damage. His estimate was quick and the repairs done after the weather permitted. We are very happy with his work and plan to have him complete another stone wall project. It was our pleasure to work with him and his helper.

    5.0 Mike L. Sylva, NC

    Gus Higdon was recommended by a local flower/plant nursery. He arrived at the appointed time, recommended a solution to our problem area and submitted a bid. He built a retaining wall, graded a flower/plant bed, installed plants and decorative stones all within the specified time limit and bid. He actually corrected some existing problems without charging more than his quoted price. Heâ s the one Iâ ll call for my next landscaping project.

    5.0 Kirk T. Sylva, NC

    Was very receptive to our needs and did a great job on grading and re-surfacing the driveway.

    5.0 Kirk M. Candler, NC

    Seal of Approval

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
    5. Sex Offender Search
      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
    6. Bankruptcy Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
    7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
    8. Liens Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
    9. Identity Verification (SSN)
      HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
    10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
      We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
