One of my neighbors recommended Rick to me and I've used him probably 4-5 times over the past four years. He helped with our backyard patio hardscape, our front walk, multiple large drainage projects and various other small projects. His team always does excellent work and we've been happy with the results. Have recommended him to my parents and friends.

I needed a deck built. I called and left a message on a Thursday afternoon. On Friday I received 3 calls, answering the third call on Friday afternoon. It was the owner. I asked for a late afternoon or weekend visit to discuss our plans - he was busy the coming weekend. We ended the call with the plan that I would call him back on Monday after talking to my wife and we could plan a visit then. Sunday at 12:15 PM the owner, Rick, texts me and says his plans changed and he was available. I called him and he asked if I was free at 1 or 1:30 to have him come by. I replied that 2PM would be better for me and he agreed. 2PM rolls around and no Rick. 2:30PM rolls around and no Rick. I text him and state "We've got another appointment thx anyway". Within 90 seconds he texts back "I'm pulling into your neighborhood now" He arrives and knocks on the door - I state "we've got another appointment. Thanks". He started to speak and I said "we've got the deck taken care of, don't worry about it". He responds with: "Really? I ran late finishing with my daughter? You're going to not do this over that?" I respond: "Rick, you found the time to text me 90 seconds after me saying I was cancelling. Why didn't you text me and say you were running 30 minutes late"? He responds, loudly while walking away: "It's kooks like you that I'm ashamed to do business with". Wow. Good luck - I guess they have all the work they need.

Great Design ,Great Construction,Great Crew. This company is on it.....Nice ,happy,hard workers. We were 9 days from start to finish on our project. Several inspections were required and the project still finished 2 days before schedule ,right on the money. I was presented a change order before any extras were agreed to, that was a change from our last several projects with other companies. We will not hesitate to call Rick back for any and all exterior projects we might have.

Rick has a gift for landscape design. He has talented stone masons and has a good eye for how to work with any space. I found he was good at fixing drainage issues, irrigation and building shade structures etc. He seems to really put out a premium product!

I was warned to stay away from Rick by my neighbor that had a horrible experience. I wish I had listened to her! I too had a horrible, horrible experience with this company. I will NEVER recommend him! He is a liar and a scam artist. Watch your bill as he will pad it excessively and once you sign your contract he becomes an aggressive, unproffesional bully!He tells prospective clients to drive by my home as a sample of his work which is a lie because I completely rearranged everything. Stay away!! Be warned!! My biggest monetary loss and regret in building my new home was to hire him!

I'm not too sure who the unhappy person is below me but I know for sure that GPL has always followed through with their word. Never has the owner shown up late. Work is always done promptly and is of quality. They always come out and fix things if there is a problem. I have no idea what this person was on when they wrote that hateful review but that was FAR from the truth. I have been a customer over 15 years, and have friends that are also Rick's customers. He is very well liked in our community and we have never had an issue. hmmm.. probably one of those people that have nothing better to do than complain because they are so unhappy. VERY SAD INDEED.

Very unprofessional company. After receiving final payment stopped returning phone calls. Owner shows up late or not at all for scheduled meetings. Spent more than $50,000 on landscaping for a private residence, and did not receive a receipt for all of this amount despite numerous reminders. Do not deliver the high quality results they promise. E.g. cracks in outdoor kitchen less than 1 month later, trellis blown apart at first strong wind, plants dying because of insufficient water coverage. Had to pay another irrigation company to come and fix issues. Promised to replace some dead plants, but did not follow through.

I had Rick remodel my pool that had been leaking for several months. His crew was amazing. They started right away and finished the job very quickly. The job-site was always very clean and everyone was so nice. They stuck to the budget and I got the pool I always wanted. I definitely recommend these guys.

I am a developer and I used Rick to do the landscaping on some upscale townhouses I recently built. He installed custom stone patios on all the units and easy to maintain planting in the front. Because of the tremendous job Rick did on my investment properties, I hired him to build an outdoor kitchen at my personal residence. It is above and beyond what I had expected and is the favorite gathering place for my friends and family. Highly recommended!
