They transformed our lakefront point to something you'd only see in a magazine. Hand-built stone walls and a stunning flagstone patio and landscaping, complete with lighting and a fire pit. He practically added another room to our summer home. Its gorgeous and now we can enjoy the lake views from the outside rather than inside looking out the window. They were professional on every level cleaned up every day, and took such pride in every aspect of the project. Its as gorgeous from the water as from land. Definitely get them on you jobs!!!!
Rainbow Acres has done extensive landscaping to our property. Mike and Lisa, the owners have transformed unidentifiable bushes, weeds and unnamed growth in our yard and created an oasis of distinctive spaces for displaying variety of different plantings. Whether one looks from the side porch or the front yard or back we can see a graceful ornamental pear tree or a service berry bush in a background of tall majestic grasses. They have designated planting areas of colorful hibiscus, variety of hydrangeas, lilies and lilacs and various flowers creating a dramatic flower fill painting. We are truly happy with their landscaping skills.
Rainbow Acres installed a stone veneer system in our living room to complement a wood stove that we had installed. I wanted it to look like a fireplace with a mantle. Mike was timely when he came to give an estimate, very clear and transparent about his process and how we would work together. He was also very prompt in getting back to me with actual numbers. He started exactly when he said he would and was great about keeping me up to date on how he saw the project moving along. He and his crew were so professional and very respectful of our home-they were very neat (and masonry is messy). The project was completed on time and it exceeded my expectations in every way.
I hired Rainbow Acres after a long search to find a company that would use natural materials to transform a scrubby and rocky point on Lake George. Their website convinced me to invite a meeting. It was obvious to me that they could handle the big project and produce a result that would greatly enhance the site. They went to great lengths to find the correct stone, color and sizes for the patio and wall project. It all came in on budget. The landscaping was separate--and they did a fantastic job.
I had Rainbow Acres put in a French drain for me. Before starting, Mike scoped out the area and made sure it would not affect any surrounding properties. Mike and his crew showed up on time, explained exactly what they were doing, and even took pictures of the work in progress each day. The following year, I had Rainbow Acres come back and landscape around my home. Mike and his crew were a pleasure to work with.
We were extremely pleased with the new front walkway at our residence built by Rainbow Acres. Mike is extremely personable and knowledgeable. He met with us several times to explain the various stones available, worked with us on the design and location of the walkway, and completed the project in a very short time for the estimate quoted. The workmanship was excellent. We would recommend the company to anyone in need of landscaping services.
Mike Shannon and his crew at Rainbow Acres have done a number of diverse projects at my home in Middlebury, VT over the last five years, and I've been extremely pleased with everything. From making my lawn nice and green with no weeds, to building a wonderful stone wall and walkway, to installing a stone facia on the foundation of my bungalow-style house, Mike seems to have the skills to do just about any job. And, he does them all well and at a fair and reasonable cost. Mike is hard-working and as honest as the day is long, and I'd heartily recommend him and his crew to anyone.
Michael Shannon was great. He was efficient, went beyond what was requested and our lawn/yard looks wonderful. He went beyond the call of duty, trimmed our trees, cleared out bushes with thorns the size of spikes and we were amazed. We're looking forward to his assistance in the spring on our walkway and our flower beds. I highly recommend him!!!!!
