Terrific from Start to Finish – We've had lots of experience with contractors. Rock & Rose stands heads and shoulders above any other contractor we've ever employed - and they've given us a rear-yard that is the envy of our neighborhood.
They're collaborative, and eager to please. Their designer, Pam Nagle worked diligently with us. She created a beautiful, peaceful, and extremely functional and interesting redesign our rear yard. Their entire crew was competent, cooperative, knowledgeable, and extremely pleasant to work with. Phil Birkmyer the Project Manager, consistently check on progress and was always available. R&R did everything from demolition of an aging deck, to transplanting decades old shrubs, building decorative fencing and arbor, installing a blue stone landing, steps, large patio, lighting and irrigation - always making sure that we were completely satisfied. Their workmanship was stellar.
While they are not cheap, we can truly say that we got more than we ever anticipated. We highly recommend them to anyone that wants a no-hassle, cooperative contractor that produces the highest quality product, and leaves you with everything you could ask for.
Amplified and extended my ideas! – They took my ideas, amplified and extended them, and improved on them. For example, I had a notion of emphasizing redwood and copper as themes. I also wanted to hide the wiring for the fence's post-top lights and my security cameras in a copper pipe that would run along the top of the fence as a decorative element. R&R extended this idea to include copper pipe ballisters for the deck and stairways, and additional copper elements in the design. They fabricated a set of copper bowls that carry water from the upper level of my pond to the lower level.
Consistent attention – My husband is a tough judge of people and slow to trust anyone, but the consistent attention that Rock and Rose has given us and the yard won him over early on.The fascination is that even though we can't wrench ourselves out of the yard during the day, it's even more magical at night!
Welcoming environment – They constructed a very artful, small two-level pond of natural free-standing stone that offers my shubunkin and goldfish, turtles, frogs, crayfish, minnows, etc., a very safe and welcoming environment. They worked with me over three years to craft planting solutions that would both attract birds, bees, and butterflies to the garden. A challenge was finding plants that could stand up to the activities of three Weimaraners, and they were good about working with me to experiment with various plants.R&R was willing to let me drive the design of the space.
The city's most notable botanists – We were fortunate to have found Rock and Rose to help us completely overhaul the former yard of one of the city's most notable botanists! Our back yard is now a sanctuary where we do most of our entertaining because it is the most soothing place to hang out with friends. People take one step outside from the living room and their eyes go so wide - they're hypnotized and enraptured - they start to stroll to whichever plant has grabbed their attention first and say - "what is this beautiful flower, I've never seen anything like this before?"
Really impressed us – One of the things that really impressed us about working with the folks at Rock & Rose is that things didn't always go smoothly--they never do--but it was easy to work with them to get over the bumps. When a neighbor complained about the fence we planned to build, they talked to the neighbor's contractor, explained in detail what was planned, and the neighbor was satisfied.
A very good experience. Your staff is very responsive, and your work is always very consistent. Our landscape really reflects your care and attention. Thanks.
Reliable and professional – I find Rock & Rose to be reliable and professional. I am particularly impressed with responsiveness from Mike.
Exceeded our expectations – Everyone involved has met and exceeded our expectations of how this project should and is proceeding to date. At this point, we are very pleased.
