They're terrific.
It was a drainage thing—exterior work. I would recommend them and say it was pretty good. I'd give them an A.
They were fine. They put in a drainage system in my yard for water coming off of the back hill. I chose them because they said something about looking for creative or alternative solutions to the whole perimeter French drain system that other companies would have recommended. I would give them an A.
They did a good job.
I would recommend them.
They were good.
We've moved, so we haven't used them since, but an A grade is fine.
So far, whatever they have done has been on the money. I liked their quality work, timeliness, and professionalism. They had to grade the backyard and install a French drain and sprinkler system. I chose them because I liked the owner who came out to meet me. I felt comfortable that he knew what he was doing. I'd give them an A.
Hydroscapes' work is still holding up. I liked their knowledge, the time they spent with me before starting the job, and the education and expertise of the owner. The job was to minimize the degree of surface water and erosion in our yard, so they put drainage throughout our entire yard. I would give them an A.
I had a great experience with Hydroscapes. They were very thorough and detailed with assessing our problem. They really went through a lot of options and came up with some good ones for us. They were very courteous, and they did a good job. It was great. They put sump pumps in our basement and recommended that we change where some downspouts came down. We haven't had a problem since, so they earned an A grade.
