Thank you Ryan. Your amazing crew who helped us with landscaping our front yard and installing two beautiful patios in our backyard. Ryan always responded to me the same day I might have a question and always kept me updated on his schedule. The crew always cleaned up the job site and their pricing is competitive. I will use Platinum Ponds & Landscaping again and refer them as much as possible.

Ryan and his team at Platinum Ponds & Landscaping did a great job! They showed up on time and completed the work on schedule. I really appreciate their attention to detail and the quality of their work. I would highly recommend them.

Ryan and his crew were outstanding from start to finish. They were hired to rebuild part of a pond and then we decided to redo the whole thing. They were always prompt and on-time, courteous, and willing to explain what they were doing at any time. The "new" pond came out AMAZING while being finished on-time and on-budget. My only regret is that I didn't know about them sooner. Thanks!
