We contracted with Ryan's Landscaping, Inc. (aka Ryan's Trees), owner Mikel (Mike) Fogt, in September 2015 to construct a paver patio and fireplace in our backyard. Mike and crew broke ground on the project on October 23, 2015. After 7.5 months of slow progress, poor quality work, and a yard littered with construction debris, we fired Mike. Which was the smartest thing we could have ever done. We discovered that the caps on the retaining walls had not been glued down. Then we discovered that the retaining walls were not pinned. The entire wall of both sides of the fireplace shifted out almost 2 inches in a matter of weeks. The pavers were separating at approximately 3 feet from the edge of the retaining walls and huge wash outs were forming behind the retaining walls and stairs. We hired a mason to rebuild the retaining walls, pull up the entire paver patio, bring in additional materials, and relay the patio. At that point, our new contractor was able to finish the project. If we had not fired Mike, we believe not only would our patio still not be complete, but that it may not in fact be standing. We shall see what the future holds for the quality of the fireplace construction. That is the only thing Mike built that we have not rebuilt to date. Our project ended up being more than $6k over budget and extended over 9.5 months. Stay away from Mike Fogt and Ryan's Landscaping or whatever corporation name he is using. Stay far far away.

Mike was hired to take on large project; after 4 months of smaller portions being worked on that were of poor craftsmanship, i asked mike to bring materials onsite since i paid 50% up front for them. He then decided not to show up any more and not return my money. Pending litigation
