Our church at 780 Del Monte Lane used Gail Willey Landscaping to clear up some major drainage issues around our 3 acre property. In doing so, we also had them create additional parking and a large paver patio that the church could use to expand outside the church building when holding major events or hosting weddings. Tom and Gail worked extensively with us to make sure the design and construction went perfectly, and helped us improve our Memorial Garden area as well. Gail also found a way to get us nine full-grown trees from another site where the builders were just going to cut them down, and arranged to move them into strategic locations on our site for a nominal fee. Imagine the reaction of our congregation when they arrived on Sunday to find all these beautiful full-grown trees around the new patio! They looked like they had been there for years, and they continue to thrive today. Two years later, when we realized that we needed to totally re-do the failing 30 year old irrigation system for the entire property, Gail Willey Landscaping helped us put together an extremely flexible design that met our watering needs while saving a significant amount of water (and cost) over what the old, inefficient system cost us. They also installed a frostfree line with hydrants that allows us to use hoses during dry spells in the winter without having to turn on the entire system. They tied the new system into the renovation work that had been previously done, so that none of that work had to re-done. We have been extremely satisfied with the results of both projects they completed for us. It's a pleasure working with Gail and Tom. They work very hard to make sure that they understand your needs and then deliver even more than you expected. We have them at the top of our list to call whenever we have a project that needs the exceptional quality of service they provide.
We wanted to completely change the fromt ladscaping of our newly purchased home from sloped lawn with front door access via the driveway to xerographic with stone steps leading directly to it. In addition to lawn eradication, grading for 3 dry creeks and removal of sprinkler irrigation pipes, prep work also entailed removal of 1" thick Durastone that covered our concrete slab front and rear porches. That was no small feat, that entailed use of electric chisels over several days. Gail Willey was the only landscpaing company that we contacted who was willing to include it in its firm bid. The work was done professionaly, imaginatively and within a tight window that enabled completion before our 3-week trip to Turkey. The placement of boulders, blending stone steps, rock cover, plantings and lighting as well as thin pavers for the 2 porches conformed completely with our expectations. We also requested some follow-up work to install security lights around our house and a 220 V conduit for our new spa, and they were done timely and priced reasonably. We heartily recommend Gail Willey Landscaping for any size and complexity project.
Gail Willey Landscaping constructed a rockery retaining wall for me as part of my new home construction. My site was exceptionally difficult to work on because it was very steep, the excavation contractor had over-excavated into the hillside (leaving a cut-wall too tall to be retained by the maximum allowable 6-foot wall, as planned), and my newly constructed house crowded their machinery into a space only 12 feet wide. GWL developed a solution to all these limitations. And, with caution, care, and deftness, they built over 200 lineal feet of granite rock wall ranging from 3- to 12-feet high and never even touched the house in the confined space. Because I had such a positive initial experience with the company, I found more work for them to do. They rip-rapped two slopes, regraded a hillside, expanded my parking area, added topsoil, and placed decorative gravel around three sides of the house. They also advised me on planting options. I have since recommended them to others, because I am fully satisfied with the work they did, found their price reasonable, and enjoyed working with their people.
