Vincent & Adam,

Thank you so much for the work Ferrara-Buist did on our backyard renovation this year! We were very pleased with the process from start to finish. You created a wonderful design to really maximize our space and take advantage of the beautiful view in our new home here in Baxter. We really appreciate that you worked to create a long-term plan that could be done in stages to fit both our budget and our lifestyle.

Thank you for meeting with us on multiple occasions, talking us through our options and answering all of our many questions. Everyone who worked on our project was very professional and friendly, and we were impressed that the entire process was completed in less time than estimated, even with some poor weather conditions.

The result is even better than we had imagined; the multi-level winding retaining walls, graded yard, tree clearing and finishing fence provides us with an amazing backyard that we look forward to using to the fullest for years to come.

Thank you again! We will certainly be recommending your services to any of our friends looking for home or yard upgrades.
