“Hydroscapes helped us when no one else would touch our yard. We desperately needed a fix to the runoff in our backyard which threatened the foundation of our home. They have given us peace of mind and helped us protect our home.”

“Professionalism, knowledge, and a personal touch when discussing the work done are strong points of Hydroscapes.”

“The technicians are always on time, always helpful, and just plain easy to deal with—A+.”

“Hydroscapes is very professional and friendly—A+.”

“They are great and always improving.”

“I have used their service for years, recommended them to others, and remain very pleased as they provide service and address my needs—A+.”

“Nice installation and nice service.”

“Good experience. No complaints.”

“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.”

“Hydroscapes put some drainage on my property. Everything was top-notch, and they were professional. They get an A.”

“They were responsive to my questions and adapted to what we needed. We had a follow-up, and there was some additional work needed for the frost on the drainage pipes. They were done, paid, and didn't have to come back, but they came back and fixed it—no questions asked. That left a good impression as well. It was a one-time thing. They installed a lot of drainage because we'd had a garage built. They put drainage in for the garage, and at the same time, they dealt with a lot of the flooding in our basement. Since they did their work, we haven't had that problem. I would recommend them. They did a great job. I would grade them as an A.”

“They did a great job. Rob Kratz came out, looked at my situation, gave me an estimate, and then we discussed some other possibilities. There was drainage water running down from the backyard. We settled on a price, and then his guys came out, did a good job, and got it done in one day. I have no complaints at all considering what I was looking to get done. They were the perfect fit. You've got construction companies out there that will do water management but want to dig a big pit and put a French drain down there. This was just a matter of picking the low point and running a PVC pipe underground through the backyard. It was as simple as that. It took them most of the day to do it, but it's done. I chose them because they seemed to be a perfect fit for what I was looking for. They'd get an A.”

“They installed the drainage system, and they did some minor garden work with shaping a garden. I chose them because of the fact that I had a drainage issue in my yard, so I wanted somebody that was able to work on that, and that's what they did for a profession. I didn't choose someone that did that on the side. I would give them an A. The customer service and the workers were all excellent in answering any questions that I had. I also needed to have some extra dirt brought over two or three weeks after the work, so I called them up, and they scheduled it. They came out and did an excellent job on repairing that as well.”

“It was excellent—no complaints.”

“I only have good things to say about them. The owner who came out was very service oriented and very knowledgeable about what needed to be done and how to get it done. The results were what we were looking for, and they did it around our schedule. We had a couple of other things going on in our yard, and they were flexible with us. They put a drainage pipe across our backyard. We have water from our neighborhood, and the way it was designed is to flow across our yard as the last exit to a retention basin. After the years, it needed regrading. It had worn out, so the water was sitting there. Now it doesn't—it travels to where it's supposed to. I would recommend them. I'd give them an A.”

“They did fine. They improved drainage, and they did a good job. I'd rate them as an A.”

“I used them for my backyard. I like the fact that I don't have to wake up in the middle of the night in the middle of a rainstorm and check my basement anymore. I had a severe problem with my backyard flooding, and rather than worrying about the sump pump working, the crew came in, worked for about four or five days, and fixed my problem. I would grade them as an A.”

“They were prompt, and they did it well. They were installing an underground drainage and overflow system. I would give them an A.”

“They were very knowledgeable and prompt, and they solved the problem that we had. They put in some French drains because we were having water problems around the foundation of our house. I would rate them as an A.”

“I would give them an A. They took care of some drainage issues, and we were very happy with them.”
