We are still enjoying our fabulous backyard- just had family out last month and
had cocktails at the firepit lunch and dinner outside…they loved it!
And so do we (especially at this time of year).

Dream Retreats was the absolute best choice in landscaping we could have made. We found them on thru Google and were thrilled with every step along the way. Our initial contact was efficient. The first meeting with the designer was effortless. We set the dates for the job and Todd and his crew stuck to it. Watching his crew work in our back yard and turn a piece of dirt into our very own oasis was nothing short of spectacular! Todd was around a lot, and he was a welcome friend coming into our home. I cannot say enough good things about this company. I think everyone should use them!

Hi, Todd. Thanks so much for everything! Were so excited to go out and enjoy our beautiful new backyard.
I appreciate your leaving me the sample colors for the Alumawood. I guess it is Mohave Tan, although it looked quite a bit darker on the website. Either way, it matches very well with the pavers, so it worked out for the best. Do you want me to mail you back the samples or were you planning to swing back by?
Thanks again for everything. You and Sonny (and your crew) have been a pleasure to work with.

The patio/pool deck looks great! Your staff are truly artists in doing this work. I was able to watch part of their work and it was fascinating and interesting. Thank you for a beautiful new setting in our backyard!

I love all the work your team has done for my house. The frontyard came out so wonderful that as soon as I decided what I needed done for the backyard Dream Retreats was the only group I would consider for the job! Everyone has been so great and the end results are fantastic.
Thank You for a job well done! Jeanie Pollack - June 2011
Dream Retreats did a phenomenal job on our backyard! It is amazing to us how beautiful and functional the backyard is! The materials and workmanship are extraordinary – every Marbella paver was placed perfectly, every plant and sprinkler placed just so, the design so well-thought out. Love the putting green!! Your follow up is like no other we have experienced: EVERY detail was attended to, every promise fulfilled. We love our backyard and every aspect of it. We also appreciated and enjoyed having the Dream Retreats crew here at our house! Great guys who do a beautiful, beautiful job. Happy to recommend you anytime, and happy to show people the beautiful job in our backyard!

Hi Todd, The guys put in the chuparosa replacement and sorted the riff from the raff! So all is well. Again, many thanks and we are VERY pleased with the results of your efforts. We have gotten scores of compliments so be proud of the work you and your crew did! Here are the photos of the end stages. (I believe I already sent you earlier ones; if not, let me know). I will take more as i would like to try different times of the day to get the best possible results. (AFTER the New Year and life settles a bit . It is so hard to capture the essence of this. Have a wonderful holiday!!!! We invite you to stop by now and then to see the yard as it “fills in”. Best wishes,Susan and Mike ( and Shardi)
Hi Todd . . .
I’m so sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. Life has been crazy – very busy at work, and helping my daughter find a home – she found one in Grayhawk at a great price – one of these days she may be able to use your services.
Anyhow, every time I walk out to my patio, I fall in love all over again with everything you did – the pavers are so beautiful, and the BBQ has been great – it will be even better when the weather cools off! Your team of guys were so hard-working – I was very impressed with their workmanship. I don’t think anyone realizes exactly how hard they work – they have no slack time in their day – they are amazing.
You were so patient as I chose the design of the BBQ, the stacked stone and landscaping – I appreciate you taking the time to explain every detail so well. Since I’m in the design business, I like to have my own input, and you allowed me to do that. The end result was just what I wanted, and more! I am so glad I also decided to pave the side yard behind the BBQ, as it makes everything flow so well. By the way, I get so compliments on my front walkway!
I hope your business continues to do well, and I will be calling you when I have the $$$ to do the stone on the front of the house!
Thank you again for your excellent service!
I want to let the entire Valley know just how happy I am with the service and professionalism we received from Dream-Retreats! I probably did more research than most in choosing what company to go with in doing our backyard. I looked at close to 15 different companies. I narrowed that down to five, obviously Dream-Retreats was one of them. Each company came out to our house. We gave each company ideas of what we wanted and they all came up with their own designs and cost. I informed each company how many landscape contractors I would be receiving a quote from. When I spoke with the owner of Dream-Retreats, Todd, he was very straight-forward with us. He told us exactly how the process would work and ensured he would visit the job before and after completion of the job. Not only did we love their design (thank you Sonny), but their prices beat out the other contractors! Todd followed up with us as promised and was great to work with! We would recommend Dream-Retreats to anyone! We love our backyard and the artificial turf is GREAT! It is very durable and my pitbull Lucy can attest to that! Thanks for the great service!The Morrow Family
I was in a bit of a hurry this morning but wanted to convey my full appreciation for the completed backyard renovation. It turned out wonderfully and exceeded expectations. I was surprised how easy and straightforward the entire process turned out, from the initial consultation to the completion of the project. You delivered on every commitment – not something that can be taken for granted. The results were the perfect harmony of my general goals and your considerable experience and vision. My new backyard oasis will bring great enjoyment and is the perfect remedy for those stressful days. Feel free to offer me as a reference to prospective clients. Regards.
Dream Retreats has a professional attitude, on time, on budget, with a hands on management and self motivated precision team.

Dream Retreats really listened to all our redesigning needs. Now we have a wonderful backyard where we can enjoy watching our kids play and have fun entertaining friends.

Thank you very much for working with us on our recent landscaping project. Everything is so beautiful and the finished product exceeds our initial concept and expectations. We appreciate your patience, candor and expertise. Above all though, we appreciate your professionalism. Working with you was great and you made it so easy. Thanks for a job well done!
Lyle and Peggy Bartel
From the first day we met you until the completion of our landscape, the experience was delightful. You came to our home, introduced yourself, and from then on listened to our ideas and proposed designs for our yard. When you returned, you presented us a set of plans that could not have been more perfect for our “dream retreat”. We loved everything about your design. We were impressed as each work day began, you were at our home to give instructions to your workers and make sure every detail was perfect as work progressed. You worked with us on a daily basis and made any changes to our landscape, trees, plants and lighting so everything was just as we had envisioned. You patiently took me “shopping” on several occasions for materials so I could make that perfect choice. We are thrilled with the outcome. Todd, you are the consummate professional, and we cannot thank you enough for our beautiful landscape. Please express again to all your crew how much we appreciate all their hard work through the long, hot July and August days. They made the dream a reality. It would be our pleasure for you to bring any prospective client to our home and show off your fabulous work. We are so proud of our yard and you should be too. The very best thing to come out of this whole experience is we made a great new friend.

I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks for the great job you and your crew did with our backyard. We really love it. It looks great and is now so functional. I especially appreciate your patience and understanding in relation to Eileen and I. I know that at times we were both a big pain in your butt and you probably got very frustrated. You still always returned our MANY phone calls in a timely and courteous manner and answered all of our questions. And I know you were sick of us even though you said you weren’t! Thanks for explaining everything to us and making sure everything was done right. You handled the little “bumps in the road” with great professionalism and in very quick time (such as when the water main broke …. and replacing the original curbing you laid down). Thanks again! You made the entire experience a lot less painful than we originally thought it would be. If you ever need a reference don’t hesitate to give our our phone number or use this letter.
Now that we are finally getting a little more settled and really enjoying our new home, we wanted to take the time to send you a formal thank you for the excellent landscaping work you completed for us. We have been comparing our landscaping with others in the neighborhood and we can definitely distingnish your work from others. We noticed right away and this is continuing to prove out, that the trees you brought are bigger and more nicely shaped than others of the same box size and type. Also, the boulders you brought have more character and are more interesting than most of the others in our neighborhood. We are especially thankful that you supervised the work right down to the smallest details and never asked for our money beyond the deposit until all was completed to our satisfaction. We receive compliments on our yard almost every day thanks to you. We are pleased to refer all who ask to your company for their landscaping. We couldn’t be more pleased! Thanks again.
Don and Linda Perham
First off. .. THANK YOU FOR MY NEW BACKYARD!!! We are very impressed with the professional way you conduct your business, your timeliness, and cleanliness in completion of the job. From our initial meeting to walking through our well-landscaped yard you consistently over delivered and did it in the short time you promised. We definitely chose the right group to make our yard a beautiful place to spend time! Be sure to pat your guys on the back for a job well done, the sprinklers and hose bibs are working great and saving me time every day. Your company will be proudly recommended to friends and neighbors looking for high quality work done right, the first time.
P.S. Our dog Monet loves the new grass too.
