We've used C&M for many years to take care of both large scale and smaller landscape projects. They built 2 large and attractive retaining walls on difficult terrain that will probably last longer than the house. C&M workers are always skilled, reliable and very hard working guys. We get good advice from Mike, detailed estimates and a thorough explanation of all the factors in each job. We're happy to recommend C&M for stonework, planting and yard care.

C&M Residential did an outstanding job on my backyard. I had an old wood deck that needed to be replaced and a backyard that was in major need of a complete overhaul. C&M removed the old deck, fixed a sink huge sinkhole and added a beautiful concrete patio and new cedar deck. Their crew is professional, courteous and always cleaned up the site each day. The results are wonderful and everyone who has seen their work loves the transformation to this beautiful outdoor living space. I would definitely recommend C&M for this type of work!

C&M cleaned out a large debris pit that extended underneath a swimming pool built by the previous owner. They were creative in their approach, professional in their work and left the yard clean. The landscaping plan they executed over the repaired earth looks great and makes my wife happy.

We had C&M come out to give us an estimate on a sinkhole. They charged us $100 just to give an estimate. They also refused to give a firm estimate because they don't want to take on any of the risk that the hole is larger than they expect and would rather place that risk on the customer. The proposed contract terms are ridiculous and extremely one-sided in favor of C&M and to the detriment of the customer. The contract even permits them to charge you for time that they aren't on the jobsite for things like refueling, loading equipment, travel time, etc. On top of charging for all of this, they also want to charge you for every piece of equipment that they bring out and each piece has substantial daily charges associated with it. Their pitch tries to play up your fears that the hole is going to get worse and worse and they try to emphasize that nothing short of digging up the entire hole will work properly. In our case, we got an estimate from another company that was much, much lower than what they provided and was a firm estimate that the company would actually stick to, unlike these guys. C&M's proposal and policies definitely made us feel more like a mark that they were trying to gouge for as much money as possible than like a valued customer.

We have many hundreds of satisfied sinkhole customers! We charge consultation fees to look at sink holes when the customers are outside of our primary service area. We have specialized in sink hole repair work since the 1990s solely as a result of their being so many sink holes/debris pits in our primary work area which is Cobb County. The reason that our contract terms include charging for off site time is because we are asked to perform such work both within our service area and well outside of it and we refined our rates to accommodate. There is no way to be sure of the scope of work with such projects because the depth of sink holes can not be determined without expensive efforts being taken. We do not provide estimates for sink holes. Some are very small and some are large. Having looked at well over 1500 of them and repaired over 300 I am still only able to speculate about the size and expense of each job that I look at. We fix sink holes correctly and stand behind it. We see many sink holes fixed incorrectly. I am happy to share my experience with people that call about such problems. Buried debris will continue to decompose, lose volume and cause further settling so when I tell potential customers what they can expect if they leave the buried debris in place it is a certainty. We certainly aren't doing any fear based marketing and I have no idea how someone can claim that we are overpriced when they didn't hire us to perform the work as we may very well have been able to fix their problem for less than spent with another contractor. If you have questions about anything related to a sinking or settling situation, feel free to get in touch with me. Michael Staley, President. email@example.com.
Did an excellent job fixing a huge developers sinkhole in my front yard. I had the same crew for the entire job and they were very professional and courteous. They went out of their way to make sure not to disturb any of my utilities which all ran thru the center of the hole. I would highly recommend them.

Our front porch has been sinking over the years. Brendan provided us with a consultation and was very thorough in his explanation of what work would be done to support the porch. The entire staff kept in touch with us throughout the process prior to, during, and after the job was completed. The carpentry staff got to work on the two-day project and it was quite obvious they knew what they were doing. Our front porch is finally level and definitely won't be sinking again. This company is top-notch with knowledgable, professional employees. We highly recommend C & M Residential for any work. You will not be disappointed.

Sinkholes, we had three ... Big ones. C&M handled the problems (one was 30 feet deep!) and kept us informed and "part of the team" throughout. Because of how they handled the sinkholes, we contracted the, for a new driveway and walk, front landscaping and a patio. They rebuilt an aging, poorly designed sprinkler system. C&M was always professional and on time, from the designer to the foreman to the crew. Also, C&M communicated with me as I needed, via email, text and cell, accommodating my travel schedule. We will not undertake any exterior work without calling them. Excellent experience.

They devised a great plan to restore a creek eroded area and to prevent further erosion in a difficult to access area. Carried out the plan without a hitch. It looks great and seems to work. They had to move plants and landscaping to get to the area but restored everything so that you would never know what all they had to do. They even scrubbed the driveway when finished. Pricey but the results made it seem worth it. Brendan Smith really knows his stuff and makes everything hassle free.

My small project was treated with as much thought and excellent work as if it were C&M's top job. Brendan made a very good design for my front yard and carried it through with top quality plants and prompt installation. He even helped me diagnose what turned out to be a major vole problem.

I recently purchased a house in Powder Springs and after having a pool installed and other home related projects done I soon realized it is very rare to get honest, reliable and quality work done. After weeks of frustration I was lucky enough to meet with Brendan Smith a landscape architect with C and M Residential Services. Brendan's problem solving ability, expertise and professional demeanor was both enlightening and refreshing. At the end of the project my faith was restored in the fact that their are still quality oriented companies that do what they say, with no hidden costs. I would recommend them to anyone.

Contacted C&M to do some landscaping maintenance work. The company was professional during all conversations and during the estimate process. The pricing was fair and the work was done perfectly. I recommend them and will use them again.

Brendan Smith was sent to my home to evaluate the security of my deck. He was sooo thorough, I could never ask for more. He determined that my deck was secure with no need for any immediate action. He could have easily told me that I needed repairs, but he didn't. He was extremely professional. When it comes time for repairs, I will definitely request C & M - specifically Brendan Smith. I highly recommend C & M for an honest assesment and quotation for all future deck and landscaping needs.

C&M recently completed a backyard project for us including planning and installation of a landscape timber outlined, mulch-filled play area for my son's swing set, which was on a slight downgrade. Additionally, they created two new pine straw beds and planted several new shrubs in an area where we could not grow grass properly. They planning with Denise was very helpful as she created a design that worked for us from a cost perspective and also improved the overall look of our backyard. We were also happy with the dialogue and service from both Carl and Michael. We were so impressed with C&M that we will most definitely use them for our next outdoor project. I would highly recommend C&M.

New to the area, couldn't get anyone to give me a contractor lead for a driveway, irrigation, and electrical work. Finally I overheard someone mention CM Residential Services. I called and Carl, the office mgr took all my information and set a time for me to meet with Michael, the owner. He was on time. AND as fate would have it, my water main to irrigation connection ruptured. He turned off the water at the main and one of the irrigation techs came by to seal things off so we could have water. The driveway was done in 2 days and perfect! The irrigation was reconnected and all sprinkler heads checked, replaced a couple, and set up all zones for maximum efficiency! CM Residential Services is AWESOME!!! I HIGHLY recommend them for ANY work you need done around your home!! THEY ROCK!!!
