We recently had the pleasure of working with Make Over My Yard to pave our backyard patio & side walkway, install a gas fire pit and enhance our backyard landscaping. We were extremely impressed with the professionalism of their team and their ability to transform our backyard into what we had envisioned. After we initially contacted them, they were quick to arrange a time around our schedule to come out and walk our property to come up with a plan. They were very patient and helpful as we were somewhat indecisive through the process of trying to decide what type of materials to use. Once we finalized our plans, their team worked incredibly fast and efficiently to get the project done. I was personally very impressed with how respectful the workers were and how clean they left the job site each day. The quality of their work also greatly exceeded our expectations. Evan, the co-owner, also made the long drive to our South Charlotte home several times during the project to check in with us and make sure everything was progressing to our satisfaction. They really did "make over our yard" and the transformation has allowed us to enjoy our yard more in the first 6 weeks after completion than we have in the nearly 4 years we have lived in our home! We have already recommended their company to many of our family members and friends and would encourage anyone to reach out to them for their patio/landscaping needs.
The crew did an AMAZING job. I'm so impressed by their attention to detail. The patio looks great but they are going above and beyond to make it look neat. Someone is actually shoveling all of the slush out of the driveway so there is no dirt or mulch left behind. WOW. I can't wait to light a fire in the fire pit and enjoy the patio. THANK YOU for everything.
Everything went exactly as planned and discussed. The work crew was punctual, friendly, and actually worked hard and efficiently. I was shocked and extremely impressed with the level of service provided when they swept and hosed off the street each day at the end of their shift. It isn't every company that has employees who care to do these little things. I have waited a few weeks to post this, hoping for a good, heavy rain storm, and Mother Nature has provided. We had monsoon type rains recently and I couldn't be happier with the drainage results. We finally had no standing water when all was said and done. The sod has taken very well and is ready to get mowed for the first time. We couldn't be more pleased with the service, the work, and the entire process of dealing with Makeover My Yard! We requested bids from three providers. One didn't bother to show up, and the other two were competitive with each other. The difference came down to responsiveness from Makeover My Yard as well as willingness to take a smaller job while we save for the larger project of getting a new patio installed as well as other plant landscaping work. We will most definitely be repeat customers!
Description of work:
Removal of a large raised garden box that was overrun with weeds and occupied a fair percentage of backyard space. Covered the area with sod. Also installed a drainage box and did some grading work to resolve serious drainage issues that have arisen over the years since the home was built.
MMY did an outstanding job, the quality of the work was excellent, they were on time and easy to deal with. They finished the job in 6 working days as promised. We were unsure of the Pavers that we wanted to use so we entrusted them to make our selections based on our house, the design and colors they chose were excellent, the final product turned out fantastic.
Description of work:
MMY built an approx 650 sqft paver patio with sidewalk, also a fire pit and seat wall. Also provided grading and erosion control.
Fourth time using Makeover My Yard for a residential project. Paver walkway first discussed last fall during landscaping project. Provided very detailed explanation of work to be done and estimated cost. Revisited this spring using the previously discussed plan. Work took 3-4 days to complete an 80'L x 3.5'W walkway plus trenching. Very happy with end result. They are excellent communicators, both via email and phone. They want to make sure you're happy with the process and final product. Katie, the designer, is an excellent listener. Listens to what you want, and creates a plan that best works with it. Brian, the owner, is very involved with with construction phase, and would stop by once per day to check the status and make sure the workmanship met his standards. Price was competitive with others, but feel like they set themselves apart from others with their customer service skills. They truly want to make sure you're happy with their work. I've referred them to one neighbor for a landscape project and two other neighbors for paver projects. All of them are very happy with the process and product too. Would highly recommend to others.

Belgard paver walkway from driveway to deck steps. Downspout trenching.
I can't say enough about the dedication and passion for their projects. They do awesome work. If I had to complain (and its not a huge complaint) is that they hire more workers. They have so much work at times it seems they spread themselves thin, but the owner is a stickler for perfection and quality of their jobs. I had some major technical issues come up with my project having to do with being in a town home and HOA issues, but that didn't stop him or his crews from making sure the "fit & finish" of my patio project met my satisfaction and more so it seemed, a project that exemplifies the a "makeover my yard" project.
I found out about them through a referral and there was high praise that followed that referral. I see why having gone through the experience myself. Again, when my project was done it was probably in the high demand summer months, but despite some scheduling issues and missed calls, the owner more than made up for it by "doing the right thing" because a happy and satisfied customer mattered the most.
Katie came to my house after I called and explained I had landscaping needs. We walked the beds and talked about what I wanted to get done. She made notes as we talked and then took pictures and measurements. She emailed an estimate with explanations about what work would be completed and plants that would be installed. i asked her to come back by just to be sure we were on the same page. We discussed the specific plants I liked. Later that day she sent a drawing of all beds with the layout of everything that included the plants. Katie's choice of plants were excellent. Work began the next day with old plants being removed and beds being amended and tilled. The following day stones and plants arrived and were installed and mulching began. The third day everything was completed. I found everyone at Make Over My Yard was polite and well mannered. Every request was fulfilled even as I made changes during the project. I would recommend them for any landscape needs and will use them as needed in the future.
Description of work:
Made over two beds in front of my house. Enlarged bed in rear and added a dry creek bed. Mulched all my beds and trimmed overgrown shrubbery.
They came 2 work days later and started the job and then finished it the next day. They were very careful to put down plywood so the wheel barrels used to removed dirt and then add back the replacement top soil and sod didn't damage the rest of the yard. The sod helped keep the back yard usable for our dogs and the overall job was completed as committed, on time, and looks beautiful. And even more important, the drainage problem is totally resolved. I would definitely use Makeover My Yard again for complex lawn and landscaping solutions again..
Description of work:
My back yard has a slope and one corner had an area where rain water would lay and due to shading, would not dry up. I contacted Makeover My Yard to come look at it and provide suggestions .They came out the same day I called to look at the job, made suggestions, and I had a quote in hand later that day to install a french drain and pipe it out to an area where it could run off and not do harm.
They arrived on time every day and worked long hours (past 5) to get the work done. They even brought a large tent to work under on a day that we had light rain! They answered any questions we had through out the project and encouraged good communication. The project was completed in the time frame we were given. We are very p!eased with the finished project. We will definitely call Make over my Yard for any projects in the future and will definitely recommend them for any outdoor projects.
Description of work:
Make over my yard expanded our patio with travertine flooring and built stacked stone sitting walls. They also added landscaping(trees and bushes) to our yard. The stone work was fantastic and very professionally done. We are extremely pleased with the work. The bushes and trees added look great!
I wanted a 12 ft x 12 ft Pergola built over my Paver patio so I got three bids from top Angie's List providers. Brian is the owner of the Company. His bid was only slightly higher than the lowest and because he has a good reputation on Angie's List, I chose him. Brian came out the first day and explained everything in great detail to me so we would be on the same page. I asked for the ends of the top beams to have a different cut, more fancy and paid a little extra, along with spacing the to 2 x 2's at 3 inches instead of 6 for more shade. Brian is very knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with. He aims to please all his customers. His crew was very efficient. I now have a very good looking extremely well built Pergola. I highly recommend MakeOver My Yard for all your Landscaping needs.

Brian-Your work makes you an artist whose medium is stone, wood, and landscaping supplies. We can never thank you enough for our oasis.
Brian, thanks again for the fantastic job that you and your crew did with our yard. From the initial quote with Corey, to the detailed plan and the install with Nicolas and the boys, your professionalism and service was way above and beyond. Especially all of the time and care that you personally put into the project, we were extremely happy with all facets of the process, and of course the end result is beautiful. Thanks again and feel free to count us as satisfied customers who will gladly sing your praises.
Excellent job, very professional and customer focused. Brian built us a fountain, patio, deck, retaining wall, and a zip line. He even helped my wife pick out plants. We are so impressed we now use Brian for our landscape maintenance
Brian and his team did a great job and were easy to work with. We used them to build a new patio, landscaping and firepit. We would recommend them to others and they have also done several homes in our neighborhood.
I truly hope the Committe seriously considers this and your other quotes as the service level I have received from you and the overall pricing and work has been exceptional.
Brian came out and gave me a free quote on making over my back yard. The quote was lower than another quote I had paid to get. Brian knew exactly how to handle the drainage issues in my small back yard. Even though we kept tweaking things as we went, Brian was able to keep the original quote we agreed on. In addition, he was able to get my irrigation system up and working that had not worked since moving into the house. My yard looks great, my drainage issues are solved, my irrigation system works and the cost is what was originally quoted. I'm very happy with Brian and his team. They were very friendly, honest and easy to work with.
Thank you so much for making our yard so beautiful. You really did an amazing job start to finish and we appreciate your hard work! Many thanks.
The fireplace works like a charm. We are very happy. Had 2 parties over the beautiful weekend and it is a hit in the neighborhood!
