Landscaping Project Stories

We welcome you to delve into our case studies, or project stories, as we like to call them. Each project takes you through a customer’s unique journey; the goals, challenges presented, how we tackled them and the outcome.

We chose Hicks for our backyard renovation, and we couldn’t be more pleased. The job was done quickly, efficiently and absolutely beautifully. Every member of the Hicks team was friendly, hard-working, and respectful of our home and our family. When you begin a huge project, there are usually so many headaches and hassles, so many hurdles and setbacks. There was none of that with Hicks. Can’t recommend them enough.
