I regret hiring Chad. We hired him to rebuild a bluestone deck that had leak/water problems. Many months later, many sour moments when he has unresponsive, $40K+ later, and many follow ups because his subcontractors were not doing a good job; he finally "finished" the deck but, 2 months later, we called him with a claim that the new deck still had water/leak problems. He has ignored our claims to repair the deck and we are considering a lawsuit.

I love Chad's straight-forward, no BS approach. He gives honest opinions about materials, design and cost. We had two other quotes previous to All American Landscape and Stone, but after our initial meeting we felt his quotes were very fair. Chad also explained the process of fixing a major drainage issue in our backyard, the time table of work and he was there every step of the way to manage his team, answer our questions and even adapt our design - all in person. We are beyond impressed with AALS. His team works extremely hard and we are so grateful for our new beautiful patio. Thank you for making our backyard somewhere we want to spend time!

I got several quotes to build a 5 foot firepit in my backyard with Stone leftover from building our home. We found Chad's business in a local magazine "Home & Decor Ideas." The firepit we wanted was on Chad's website so we were able to come to an agreement quickly. All American Landscape & Stone's crew were very professional and delivered a quality product. We had a stone pile in the yard that needed to be removed and his team made it disappear while completing the project in only two days. We highly recommend Chad's business and are very pleased with our firepit!

When we called we had no idea what we wanted to do in our backyard. They came out and gave an amazing design at a great price. We had an amazing patio, outdoor kitchen, and fireplace built. We couldn't be happier with the service and quality of the work. We can't wait to do more work with them in the future!!!

I hired Chad to do weekly mowing of yard. I didn't realize until I received a bill a couple weeks later that he billed for services before they were done. Never done this before, but went ahead and paid. Two months later, (due to personal issues) he informed me that he would no longer be able to mow my yard. I requested that he send me a check for the balance owed me for services that I had paid for that had not been done. No reply or check was ever sent to me. Lesson learned! Never pay for services not done.

Hired Chad & his crew to install a paver & stone wall patio in April. The job, which was to take approximately 4 days to complete, took over two weeks & when the materials were delivered they were dropped in the middle of my front yard. Since the additional time taken then killed my grass, I asked Chad to come back out & see what he could do to repair the spots they killed. We've not heard back since (this was late May). We also had a challenge on the quote for the work, which was unclear & not fully documented & he tried to charge a different amount than we'd agreed upon. So while the work done was good, the side experience keeps me from giving them fully top marks.

All American designed and implemented a trench drain to keep water out of the basement. The design was insufficient and ultimately did not work. After many claims that they were "not the cheapest, but stood behind the work", All American refused to warranty the drain and finally stopped returning calls.

I couldn't be more pleased with the work All American did on my walkway. Chad and his crew did a great job - the walkway looks great and the pricing was more than fair. I highly recommend All American Landscape and Stone!

The crew at All American did a great job for us. We put in a backyard patio and kitchen Aug2010. Chad helped us figure out what we really wanted and designed it out for us, met us to pick out the stone and oversaw a incredible hard working crew. The price was very reasonable and we got way more than we expected.

Chad and his team helped us to restore our back yard after a large tree was uprooted during a storm. We received 6 estimates and Chad's estimate was very competitive, but after speking with him several times, I felt he was the best choice for the job. His team extended a retaining wall and built another retaining wall to repair our backyard. We were so pleased with Chad and his team, that 6 months later we decided to re-landscape our front yard and immediately called Chad to perform the services. We love our new landscaping and would recommend Chad very highly. Our next project is a deck expansion, and we will call Chad for that also. D.Schmidt Sandy Springs, GA

Chad and his crew did a great job installing our paver pattio. He found a way to save us money by leaving the concrete pattio in place and using it as a base. We were under a time deadline and he got the job done in 2 days while working with several changes. Very easy to work with and great value. 5/20/11 Thanks Chad, Bill Keating.

Chad and his team were the best. They installed an irrigation system and resoded my yard in October of 2010. Everyone was friendly and everything looks and works great. What is most impressive is that all these months later with the outside temperatures going up, I needed to increase my watering frequency but did not know how to reset the unit to do so. I called Chad asking him to walk me through it over the phone and he told me he would come by my house to show me in person. He came out today and my system is reset. If you are considering doing a project like this I would strongly recommend contacting them.
Chad did an excellent job and met our expectations for design, quality, cost, and completed the job on time. Based on our experience I would recommend All American Landscape and Stone to anyone considering the building of a waterfall.
Chad came in lowest of 4 bids we got, and this concerned us. But we checked his references and vetted his plans and after his crew finished, we were more than pleased with not just the price, but most importantly the quality. They put in an outdoor patio and fireplace, and the crew did a great job. We highly recommend Chad's team
We got three bids and choose All American. We already had a plan but Chad helped us refine it and also helped us figure out how to save money and yet still complete our plan. We had thought we would have to use stone in a section to make it match but Chad suggested pavers and even brought us an example. Saved us a ton! We loved his crew as well. On time, curteous and they cleaned up even better than I had imagined. We loved All American so much, we had them do an even bigger project at our vacation home. We were only able to check on the project occasionally and even though we knew their work, we were stunned at how beautifully they were able to match existing 40 year old stone work - all pretty much unsupervised by us. Honest and Talented best describe Chad and his entire crew!
All American Landscape and Stone builds with natual building materials whenever possible.
