Wedgewood Drive Charlotte NC

Our backyard was a complete disaster before this project. When we first called H20 matic, we weren’t even able to give them any ideas about what we wanted because it was in such rough shape that neither my husband nor I were able to visualize how to make it better. The only direction we really gave them was that, if possible, we would like to have a firepit, we needed stairs down from the back deck, and we wanted a way to get from the left side of the house to the right without having to walk through a mud pit. Beyond that, we honestly had no idea what we were looking for. What we wound up with is something so beautiful we have been hosting parties and gatherings far more often just because we love to be outside now! The renovation was expensive, but still totally reasonable given the extent of the work required. We are sure that we added far more in value to the house than what was paid for the patio.
At one point, we noticed that a pole that was supposed to be moved hadn’t been moved, and it seemed like it should have been by that point (i.e. all of the gravel had been filled in and the pavers were about to be added). We raised the question, and were told it would be taken care of the next day. As promised, the very next day, everything was done as expected. We had no other problems, no miscommunications, nothing. Rick, the one who designed the patio, was responsive and took everything that we asked for into consideration. The guys who actually built it were considerate (we have an organic garden in our backyard and they did a great job of not disturbing it) and hard working. We don’t have enough clearance on either side of our house to get a real vehicle into the backyard, so they had to take small dirt movers to the back, and they took great care to always go over the same spot in the front so as not to kill our entire yard (that one side took a beating, but that was expected).
We really love our results!

Rick and his crew were wonderful. It has been three years since this installation. No Callbacks
needed!!! He used the best material and it has run perfect ever since this install. His contractor for
drilling the well is equally excellent. The well went dead early this year, I called him out and it was fixed the next day. After two years of irrigation I still recommend Rick and H2O!!

Rick and the team were very thorough and had great attention to detail in the installation and
implementation of this project. We appreciated their willingness to be flexible with our planning and
design. Very knowledgeable and professional. We highly recommend H20 Matic!

We couldn’t be happier with our new back yard! Rick and his crew transformed our boring space
into an oasis. Rick met with us for an estimate and then returned again when we had a better idea of
what we wanted. He always followed up promptly and submitted emails with photos and pricing and a drawing of how the final product would look. The crew arrived on the day specified and worked all day for 5 days until the project was completed. On the final day Rick came by and supervised and added final touches so the the plants were set in just right. The entire crew then cleaned up the area and even hosed off our neighbor’s chairs that were affected by some construction dust that blew their way. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend H20 Matic for any yard renovation you have in mind.

The project went very smoothly the crew was prompt in arriving every day.  they cleaned up each and every day, leaving our walks and driveway clear. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the crew that worked our job. Having had several conversations with Rick, the owner I am sure that all his personnel are of the same high-caliber

Description of work:
They removed an existing sidewalk and installed new pavers, including a new walk around the house. They also installed retaining wall around planting beds in front of the house. Throughout the entire job the crew was most professional checking with us regularly to make sure that everything was going satisfactorily. Finally, they also resodded our front lawn and I have confidence that the grass will work very well.  We couldn’t be more pleased with the result. In fact, we have had neighbors comment on how attractive the project came out. We would highly recommend H2Omatic for any landscaping requirements.

Punctual, professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Would definitely consider using this
company when we decide to act.

These guys were great. Hardest part was finding a slot on their schedule to do the work. Prices
were fair and everything was outlined in detailed written proposals. Owner shows a real commitment to
his work and cared about the quality of the end product/result. We hit a patch of rain during this project and he seemed even more worried than I was as to how that might affect the outcome of the job. Everything went fine and now we have a lush, properly irrigated lawn. The sod did, however, come out better than the seeded areas and you can still see some differences between the two after 6 or so months but many of those months were winter months, so we think this will disappear as we move toward summer.

I am very meticulous, tough and I expect value from my contractors. H2O-Matic delivered and
exceeded my expectations in every possible way. I started like most of you, researching on Angie’s List
and the Better Business Bureau. H20-Matic checked out on all of those and I had the pleasure to speak with Rick, the owner, who is very personable, likable and patient. It’s actually a bit disarming, how easy going Rick is and I have a hard time believing anyone could get him upset. Design Rick was very helpful, thorough and patient [and let’s be honest you have to be very patient to work with me on a project of this size]. Usually, I know exactly what I want but this project had me baffled and I had the poor guy doing 20+ revisions. I was being non-committal on materials, colors and the design but Rick did not lose patience once. He was calm, patient and completely reasonable at all times. Construction Day Rick showed up with a crew of almost a dozen people, all of which were just as kind and nice as Rick. Once they got started, Rick turned over the construction to Daniel, who is also very patient, listened to every question I asked, never hesitated once to make sure I was happy. Daniel bent over backwards, even as I nitpicked the details and he didn’t once let it phase him. Did I mention that I can be difficult? Follow-up Both Rick and Daniel, followed up with me, even after the job was complete and they were genuinely concerned about my satisfaction. I mean you can’t ask for two nicer guys. They worked some hard hours, dealt with constant questions from me and were strictly professional at all times. I mean I pushed hard but all I ever got back was kindness, professionalism and a refusal to cut corners. They take it seriously when they do a job, they want it to look right and are great partners. If I had it to do over again; I would hire H20-Matic with no hesitations and coming from me that says a lot.

Without exception, Rick and his team are best of breed in Charlotte. I’ve been through a few
previous contractors and had to fix issues they left behind. Rick knows his stuff and gets things right the
first time. Plus he’s always willing to help with occasional recommendations on water-use and seasonal tweaking… and he’s a super nice guy. These guys set the standard for my expectations with other contractors in Charlotte.

Rick and his team were great. They worked with us to make sure we got the exact patio we wanted
and went out of there way to get us the right materials. I could not be happier with how the project
turned out. You never know going into a project like this with a contractor how things are going and never once did I question Rick. I absolutely recommend H20-Matic and look forward to using them in the future for our landscaping needs!

Rick and his team did it again. This was the 3rd time we have used H2O for hard scraping and we were as pleased as ever. We had an existing natural rock fire pit that was 10 feet across with grass(weeds) surrounding it. Rick and his team came up with a beautiful design to surround it with pavers while also making it more functional by shrinking it to 8 feet across. It came out fantastic. The curvature of the pavers surrounding the fire pit along with the river stone accenting around the outside really makes a statement. Rick also redid several irrigation zones in our yard, and reconfigured some of the existing heads to correct quite a few deficiencies in e watering of our lawn. Rick never disappoints and always wants ensure that we are completely satisfied with his work. We will definitely call Rick for our next project.

Marta, Piermont Street Davidson, NC 28036

On the day we had planned to start all of this work, the weather decided to create a muddy mess. That in addition to an equipment failure caused a simple one to two day job to become a week long process. Despite all of the challenges, Rick was a true professional and got the job done. Our sprinklers are working perfectly and all of our plants could not be healthier!! My only complaint is that the crew left behind quite a bit of trash and debris in the yard to include lunch trash. If not for that minor pet peeve this would have been an A+! Nonetheless, we are very pleased and will definitely call you back for any future yard needs. Thank you Rick for a job well done! We appreciate your dedication despite the challenges. This was a small job but you gave us all the attention needed. Thank you!

Description of work:
We had some repairs and upgrades done to our current irrigation in the front yard. Rick and his team also added all new irrigation to our back yard and a drip system for some of our plant beds.

Everything went great, Work was finished in a quick and professional manner. Took about 2 days. They did a great job cleaning up the old materials. I will use them again if I need any more stone block or paver work.

Description of work:
Removed a timber retaining wall that was falling apart and installed a 3 ft high block retaining wall along part of my driveway.

 

Weavers Glenn Place, Charlotte, NC 28262

Rick was in constant touch with us by email. His wife redid our Landscape plan 3 or 4 times because of our changes. No othe Landscape companies provided a computer drawing.  His crew is “excellent”. His main man David supervised the workers, all who were very hard working. They showed up at about 8:30 in the AM and worked as late as 6 PM. Everything went perfectly, it couldn’t have been better.  Rick was here at least twice a day checking on everything. They cleaned everything up immaculately. You can get other estimates, but even if Rick may be slightly higher, although I have not found this, I highly recommend that you use Rick from H2O Matic Landscaping. He has 25 years experience and I guarantee that you cannot go wrong.

Description of work:
Rick Battaglia, the owner of H2O Matic Irrigation and Landscaping provided a quotation to me. We changed our mind quite a few times with the plants.  We are new homeowners and as you can imagine we received a really lousy few plants from the builder.  Rick reworked his prices several times because of the changes that we wanted.  We had him quote the different areas in our yard separately, so we could see how much each area cost.  We had him quote a patio for us using two different manufacturers pavers. We changed it from a 10 x 20 to a 12 x 20 ft patio. We used BelGard pavers which are considered one of the best.  His wife did a computerized drawing placing all the plants and labeling them. She has an excellent knowledge of plants.  We asked 4 other Landscape contractors to bid on the job.  One was cheaper, but most fell within a $1,000 – $2,000 range of Rick’s quote.  We almost never pick the cheapest.  We had the yard “completely” landscaped, In our front yard, he installed 30 new plants and one tree. He moved the builders plants from the front to each side to cover the utilities. He installed Arborvitaes for privacy on our side rear yard and completely landscaped a huge hill in back of us with 50 plants. The hill measures approx. 20 x 75 feet.
