"My yard had been taken over by rats because of poor drainage, a dilapidated shed, and my three big dogs' ample food supply to them, yuck. Being that my neighbors are running their gutters to my fenceline, I came up w the mother of all fixes. I want to install a rain garden. At the fenceline. At the fence. If you've researched rain gardens, you'll know I'm now not only asking for the moon, but the stars as well.
Austin arrived on time, listened to my maniacle ramblings and complaints, and with his naturally patient ways, he assured me that his recent education was really going to be the assist because he did an entire project on rain gardens!! Austin is that rare guy who gets a big childish grin when he gets to tackle something new and challenging. He'd be back with the plan in a bit. I jumped up and down in my kitchen with my husband when he left.
Phase one is complete. The dilapidated shed required heavy machinery, which was unforseen with our quote, but the cement slab was twice as thick as usual, and also laterally reinforced with steal rebar. Bless your heart, Austin. He kindly renogotiated our price, which we found absolutely fair. $100. That's not getting ripped off. I watched it happen, it was such a nuisance with it's permanent slab, but the shed he pushed over with his hands. ?????? We all had a chuckle at the end.
We've ordered the plants for the garden; my custom made, custom fitted, eco friendly rain garden. I boast because as challenging as my requests were and still are, my husband and I found the smartest, nicest, most creative, independent, honest, fresh visionary, who honestly can imagine anything we can. Austin is coming back soon to "install" the garden. I've already been able to enjoy the relief of he drains he installed when removing the shed. The rats have been gone for weeks. My mind is resting. We're so squirmy for the next phase.
We will be Austin's lifelong customers."
