5.0 Niranjan G. Apex, NC

Earth Artisans & DPS did a great job in completing our backyard better than we imagined. Preston was very helpful with the design, estimation and the DPS team was very transparent with the costs throughout (which was very important to me, to plan our vision accordingly). The entire DPS team were frequently visting the site during the actual work which shows their dedication to their work. The entire crew (lead by Christian) was hardworking from dawn till dusk everyday to complete the project in reasonable time. We will definitely hire them for future services/projects and would also recommend to anyone. They were very open to feedback and were flexible to change course when needed to ultimately do what they customer wants.

We worked with Preston at Earth Artisans on a design for our entire property (front yard, backyard, deck, patio), with an emphasis on solving a drainage problem. Throughout the design phase, Preston listened to what we wanted and also brought his unique ideas to the table. Preston came out to our property several times to visualize things himself and take se measurements. We also met with him several times to iterate through the design process so Preston could make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted. Together, we created a design that not only solved our problems, but also looked fantastic! He provided a 3D video of what the final product would look like, along with a detailed breakdown and schematics as a PDF. We are very satisfied with the design process and the final product. We also worked with Preston for a â Phase 1â of construction where he coordinated our project with a contracting crew to solve our drainage problem. This project involved turning an unsightly and poorly functioning ditch into a beautiful dry stream bed that would catch all the water running onto our property and direct it away from the house. Preston ran interference between us and the contractors, making sure that their work matched our design. Preston definitely saved us when the crew was underestimating the scale of our water problem. Our new stream bed and usable yard is both gorgeous and functional.

Preston was a joy to work with! He’s has a wonderful eye for color and design. My retaining wall project turned out more beautiful than I even imagined it could be! His crew were hardworking and respectful, and communicated well throughout the project. I highly recommend Preston and his company!

5.0 Amanda M. Westminster, CO

Preston and his crew were great! They did a fantastic job with our project and we’re quick with the work while being very professional. At the beginning of our project, we were still unsure on what we wanted the final design to be. Preston was very helpful in giving us different recommendations. We couldn’t be happier with our new retaining wall and our choice to go with Preston and Earth Alchemists!

5.0 Chuck H. Golden, CO

Preston and Crew did a great job on my fence and retaining wall project. Had about 200' of almost 50 year old cedar fencing replaced, and about 80' of old rotten railroad tie retaining wall replaced with Block and Capstone. Preston was helpful with suggestions for the project, like type and color of Block and Capstone for the wall, and using more wind and rot resistant galvanized metal PostMaster fence posts. The finished project looks great, like the quality of the cedar plank, his Crew was hard working getting the old fence and wall removed and new material installed. Happy with the work, my yard looks so much better!

5.0 Liz R. Louisville, CO

The crew built a beautiful retaining wall, levelled our yard, added new amended soil and sod. They were very attentive to my concerns and willing to go the extra mile to make things perfect. Preston was very communicative and willing to answer my many questions, even ones that were not directly pertaining to the job at hand. A very caring, hardworking team! -- Liz R. in Louisville.

5.0 Matt W. Arvada, CO

Preston and team were great to work with for my paver patio project! Preston walked us through everything during the initial estimate and provided thoughts and ideas on how to make the project perfect for our yard. Once the project began and minor issues were found, work was stopped until we had a chance to discuss options and make a decision on what worked best for us. Preston even worked with us since we had a connection to get the materials ourselves, they did all of the install and labor. We even added and additional path mid-project and that didn't slow them down! We had a few weather delays but when it was warm enough to work, they were here working, even on the weekends. Project turned out amazing and I would highly recommend Earth Alchemist and Preston to anyone and will definitely use them for any landscape needs in the future!

5.0 Deborah L. Longmont, CO

Preston and his team did an awesome job - the communication was great, the team was always on time, the finished project was exactly what we wanted, and they left everything spotless. We’ve already set up a time to talk about our next project.

5.0 Ty V. Arvada, CO

We weren't sure what we needed and Preston came up with nice ideas and his crew is great to work with. Looks really nice. Thanks!!!

5.0 Grant W. Arvada, CO

Preston and his crew were very responsive in meeting our requirements and went over the top to accommodate us on our project.
