​   The world is full of contractors that tell you that they will do the right thing but unfortunately we all know that more times than not their actions do not back up their words. I am Don Woodruff the owner of Backyard Tropicals and I have personally picked every rock for and built over 300 ponds and water features including the over 150 different features you’ll find on my website. I do your project estimate and design and don’t use creative language that says I will oversee or direct your project, which is code for I will show up and leave you a crew of nice enough hard working  guys who just so happen not to speak English but don’t worry, I’ll be back for my money. I have a crew, I don’t need to dig the hole or wheel in materials but, I do need to personally create a functional artistic vision at your home or place of business from start to finish.

   It really seems so simple. Say what you are going to do. Write it down. Show up when you say and give your customer something more beautiful than they ever imagined.  I am proud to say I have received the Angie’s List Super Service Award in each of the last three years. It’s not by accident. Read the reviews.  I expect to respect your property and give you value for your dollar. Please look over my website, read REAL current reviews, look at well over 150 of our projects and then call or e-mail us for your free consultation and estimate .
