“I was satisfied with the customer service, promptness, and efficiency. The crew that came out was extremely efficient--very respectful of the property. They cleaned up after themselves. They did an excellent job protecting the surrounding landscape.”

“I had an erosion issue in my backyard. Drainage & Erosion was the only company I could find that dealt with commercial property. They also came recommend by other companies when I was calling around. The initial visit was thorough and informative. They scheduled a time to complete the work and a time that worked best for my schedule. I would strongly recommend them.”

“Jesse is very knowledgeable and responsive. We had flooding problems from new houses built on the hill behind our house. It took Drainage & Erosion three visits to completely fix the problem and install all french drains and water catchment tanks.”

Review by
10/17/2020

“My need for Drainage and Erosion Solutions (DES) occurred after several hard rains produced water seepage in my basement. Rob Reckmeyer from DES came to my house to advise me on possible solutions; and his advice was better-explained, more logically sound, and more economical than any previous advice I had received from other waterproofing companies. Rob's customer care was off-the-charts-fantastic due to his constant availability, prompt responses to messages I left him, patience in answering my many questions, and overall friendliness and care. And the best part?: I have had many hard rains since this job was done a year ago and NEVER again experienced water seepage in my basement nor standing water in my yard. Thanks, DES and especially ROB RECKMEYER!”

“Everything was great. We were excited to have them. They took care of the problem we had very quickly and it really exceeded my expectations. Our backyard and basement were flooding and we had a ton of rain this year, and now our basement is dry and our backyard is draining well!”

“We had a good experience with everyone.”

Review by

“I think the care that they took with the slate blocks that were already down in the yard, and their work in making sure that they looked the same way exceeded my expectations. They were cleaned professionally, and the workers even put in additional dirt to help the yard drain properly. But they were very careful with the slate blocks that were part of the back design to begin with. They did a very good job.”

Review by
10/15/2020

“They exceeded my expectations in pretty much everything. The design, the actual quality of the work was fantastic, they even did things I didn't expect them to do like planting grass where they didn't even dig. I was very impressed.”

“all were great”

Review by

“Drainage and Erosion Solutions installed a full drainage system for us in January 2020. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a comprehensive drainage solution. Great to work with, hard-working, beautiful thorough workmanship, cleaned up after they were done, and most importantly: they solved our drainage issues! They wrote up the estimate and hand-delivered it, and then were available to walk through any questions I had at any time. We revised the contract back and forth a couple times, and then launched the project at the beginning of 2020 (fortunately before any of the COVID stuff started happening). Their amazing crews worked daily (in the rain, no less!!), hand digging trenches, building window wells by hand, removing vegetation, lifting off the boards of the deck one-by-one (and later replacing them), and then waterproofing, compacting, and regrading all by hand. Our issue was that our basement had flooded with the big July 8, 2019 downpours (500-year rain events), overwhelming our sump pump, gutters, window wells, and existing drainage systems. Since they installed the new window wells, french drain, swale, sump pump, and connected our downspouts, we have had absolutely ZERO issues, even with some super intense rains this year. AND - they also made it look beautiful. Our yard has never looked so good after they removed a bunch of the trees/bushes/weeds, mulched everything, and most especially: built us a beautiful swale/pathway with thick, durable, beautiful stone pavers. Our only complaint is that the window well covers were not as good as the rest of the workmanship, but we are still hoping to get those replaced. We would highly recommend Drainage & Erosion Solutions, and especially Jesse, Greg, Hernan & Justo who we had the pleasure of working with.”

“Hired to fix a backyard drainage issue. The solution disrupted my septic leech field and made the problem worse. Then was told that the fix was going to be extra because it is a private utility that was not marked.”

Review by

“We and several of our neighbors have used Drainage and Erosion Solutions to address some serious drainage and erosion problems. We have now had a couple of hard rains since they completed the second stage of two major efforts. Problems solved. This is all they do and they are experts. Most landscapers will give you a proposal and estimate but not a warranty. We were impressed with the amount of work they can complete in a short time. They can do the foundation of your home, which they did for us, by applying sealant and replanting plants. Plants that were removed and replanted have lived so they are also qualified in that arena. They did french drains, major swales, lots of stone and it appears to be working. We are very grateful there is such a company.”

“the work they did putting my yard back together went beyond what I expected. They really paid attention to detail, and even did things needing done that weren't directly related to the work they did. For example they filled in some low/bare spots in the lawn with left over fill dirt and reseeded them. They left the work areas better than they found them.”
