Backyard Renovation

I looked all over Homestars and Google for a good landscape renovator to demo and rebuild my backyard. Prior to the renovation there was an old deck, some asphalt, and a lot of rocks and dirt. The reno was to demo all of that and put in artificial turf, several garden beds, and a patio with concrete pavers.
Tim was my main point of contact, and Elli ran the crew during the actual reno.
I can't say enough positive things about the company, Tim, the communication, their patience, the quality of the work, the crew themselves, and the finished product. I write this several months after finishing the work where I can firmly say that the work was top notch and has held up well through the settling of everything and the start of winter months.
Tim was very flexible about the design and selecting specific materials (I had preferences about the type of turf, the type of pavers to use, even the silica sand we wanted for the turf), and was very honest and straightforward about the pricing. When there were changes and issues during the reno process, he was up front about that too. I say this with confidence as I had interviewed and discussed costs and estimates with two or three other reputable companies.
Tim did an A+ job even though I was one of his smaller clients and not that much money on the line. It's a testament to his work ethic, pride in his company, and quality of his work and crew. I have nothing bad to say. Sometimes I had to poke him a bit in communication, but that is true of all busy contractors as I have come to understand. He was excellent to work.
I have a lot of eye for detail and wanted to make sure the landscape grading was done optimally, that things were laid out exactly as the design because I have a small yard where even one foot of error is pretty noticeable, and the right process was followed to make sure the landscape is built durably and to code so it would last a long time. Every time I quizzed them about what they were going to do, it was always exactly as should be done. Be aware, there are lots of contractors out there that will use shoddy materials and cut corners, skip laying the right bases in or materials in to save time and money; not Oak Home Services. I would wholeheartedly recommend them and am happy to answer questions about my experience with them or share photos of our renovation with anyone who is curious.
These guys are the real deal; they do excellent quality work, are affordable, are honest, were a real pleasure to work with, and the final product is a joy to look at and walk around and will be for years to come... Hire these guys.
