    Professional and great to work with.

    0.50 Larry H. Raleigh, NC

    My project was to regrade an area enclosed by a circular driveway to solve a drainage issue - basically to increase the slope so the water would run off. Mike came to see my project area on 1/31. It had been raining a lot of so the area was very wet, but it was usually wet - this was the problem I wanted him to fix. I showed him the work area, and gave him a written description of the project, including staking and grading plans. He gave me a satisfactory price and said that they would be able to get to it around the beginning of March. A few days after our 1/31 meeting I have him the green light for the project. He came and started the work around 3/15, but after a couple of hours stopped and told me it was too wet. (I knew it was wet - that is why I hired him!) He had rough graded so the rain would run off; but there were several large puddles following this; I called him and told him this and he came back and smoothed it out on 3/24. That was the last date he worked on my project (and it is May 7th as I right this.) From that point it was delay, delay, excuse and excuse. He left a big pile of topsoil (probably 6 to 8 yards) that he had scraped up that first time he came with his machines to start the project. This was near the highest point and had soaked up lots of water. Quite possibly this water was draining out of this soil which had been saturated with water from some hard rains that had fallen in the days following him making it. One of the excuses York gave was that my well was leaking because there was a slow trickle of water coming up to the surface just downhill from that pile (which was also near my well). I called my well pump guy and he told me to shut off the water to the house, read the pressure gauge in the crawl space, wait 10 minutes, and read it again. If there was a leak the pressure would go down. I did this, except I waited 25 minutes, and the pressure did not go down. Ergo no leak. I told Mike this and he said there must be a spring there - and claimed that is why it had been so wet all this time. That is possible, but over the intervening weeks this trickle has nearly dried up, and between most of the area is completely hard and dry now - there is just a narrow channel that is wet from that trickle. I called Mike several times between 3/24 and 5/4 and usually he said he would come out and look a few days later. The next to the last time I asked him to come and discuss how we were going to get this done. I said it was wet when I hired him; he is the expert, having been in the business (he claimed) for 25 years, tell me how to solve this problem. He never followed up. Finally I called him on 5/4 and said it was two months since he had first indicated he would be able to get the project done, and I either needed to work out a plan with him to get it done, or go in another direction. He never called me back. Bottom line - he claimed to be a very experienced landscape construction contractor, I hired him to solve a drainage/wet soil problem, he started the job and then disappeared, leaving a half-graded mess behind. And he did not even have the courtesy to return my call and tell me he was not going to be able to finish the project. Can I give him ZERO stars?

    .the owner was not on the job site as promised. They seeded over debris and left me with sink holes . I was told not to put my horses out to pasture that it needed at least for months to settle. Mike called and I explained my concerns he promised to come out and make things right. He never showed up.

    Great work team, did a great job removing large trees and then reshaping my lot around the existing house. I would recommend to anyone.

    5.0 Jessica W. Raleigh, NC

    Me.York was prompt and pleasant, he was also willing to do small jobs. He came and did our project within 3 days of being contacted. I would definetly recommend his service to others.

    5.0 Carolyn R. Garner, NC

    Mr. York and his guys are great, they installed a catch basin for us to eliminate some water issues we had when it rained hard. They were there when they said they would be there, did a great job and cleaned up after they were done. I would total recommend them for any excavation/re-slopping work you need done. And the price was well worth it.
