We had some drainage problems in 2014 and had APL come out to assess the problem. While others were trying to sell us other products he convinced us that grading would solve our problem. They had a perfect rating on Angie's list so we thought we would give them a try. We are so happy we did. Here we are 4 years later and the drainage has been perfect every since even though we have a very steep hill in our back yard.
They did all they said they would do and more included some planting and sodding. It looks great. No more snow shovling a drainage path in the winter anymore. They knew what they were talking about!
We highly recommend this company!
This review is long overdue but more valuable years later.

We have worked with APL Landscape Solutions on a couple of projects and have found them to be an excellent resource. APL built a beautiful decorative retaining wall for us, which is the highlight of our backyard. With three contours, it accents our yard’s topography, makes it easier to mow and provides flowering plant color throughout the summer. More recently, we hired them to replace our front yard landscaping as many of our trees and bushes were overgrown. Again, Wayne Anderson and his crew did a great job. APL communicates well in the planning stage, shows up on time, works diligently and cleans up after their work.

The owner Wayne is wonderful to work with. He was recommended by the company who was replacing our deck. We had drainage and settling issues in our yard and also decided to put in a paver patio off the deck. He was on time to appointments and was excellent with communication. Wayne would draw up patio plans and email them. He would then call and ask what I thought. I would make suggestions and he would make the changes and email new plans. He was very accommodating and easy to work with. He worked with our decking contractor to coordinate when they were going to remove our deck and his guys would come in and fix the drainage issues under our deck, in the back yard and settling issues in the front yard. They brought in something like 6 yards of dirt, compacted the soil, laid sod and installed the beautiful paver patio in under 3 days. Wayne would come everyday and check on the progress. After the job was complete, he didn't like the way the guys laid some of the sod and how some of the drainage was done, so he had a crew come back out and redo it. After the project was completed, we have had a lot of rain and the drainage issues are no more! When we need any work done in the future, we will definitely use APL landscaping again.

We loved working with APL. From the beginning design to the finished product, our experience was even better than we hoped for. We first had our driveway and front entrance walkway installed with pavers, along with a garden, and it turned out beautiful! Their design experts were extremely creative and responsive to our own ideas. Our driveway really stands out in the neighborhood! We've had lots of great comments from our neighbors. When we decided to do our backyard patio, there was no other thought than to call APL. The patio project came out absolutely perfect! It has truly extended our living space and we have had many backyard patio parties that we credit to APL's outstanding work. We would not hesitate to call them again for any other landscaping needs.

We had APL repair two eroded hillsides in our back yard. Wayne and team did an amazing job., The project was well designed and the installation crew was tidy and detail oriented. They were courteous and professional. We highly recommend APL.

We have used APL for many years and projects. Wayne and his crew have done an awesome job on every project and we are looking forward to some more work in our back yard this upcoming spring. Highly recommended APL for any outdoor project!

APL Landscape Solutions created a serene nature back yard environment to relax and enjoy a good book and a morning cup of coffee. They were great with making suggestions based on my needs and budget creating a design that worked perfectly for me. They were always professional and a very professional and courteous team. The time estimates were accurate as well. Refreshing working with this company!
