Dealing with Paula in service is always a positive experience. So many service providers avoid the follow-up after the big sale is made. Thankfully, at Richard’s, Paula is always so responsive and helpful- a true pleasure to work with!!”-

I got a great pool from Richard’s about 10 years ago, and they have been great in all their after sale support too. In particular, Paula was a huge help as we recovered from Harvey last year. We’ve recommended RTBS to all our friends.”

We have been customers of Richard’s Total Backyard Solutions since 2001 when we purchased our first HotSpring spa. We enjoyed that spa for many years before running into any problems. When we did, Angel worked very hard to fix our issues. This last year when we decided to purchase a new spa, Paula took a personal interest in helping us get the best possible deal that Richard’s could offer. We are enjoying the benefits of a beautiful new spa today thanks in great part to her efforts on our behalf.

Richards came through finally! They came and repaired everything beautifully! Our new contractor Marvin was amazing! He knew how to fix the issue and his work is gorgeous. The management at Richards was extremely apologetic and redeemed themselves!

Beautiful work done by Richard’s Total Backyard Solutions! We tore out our 26 year-old deck and gave the backyard a fresh update! At first we wanted to replace the deck with all stamped concrete, but Mr. Richard informed us that with so much movement in our property (and we know since we have had foundation work done twice on our house), it was best to look into natural stone pavers. BEST DECISION EVER! The natural stone pavers are gorgeous and really open up the space. We love our little backyard paradise!

Finally we have completed the pool .. it looks amazing. The whole process did go over smoothly with a few minor bumps in the road.. some of the contractors can get sloppy and not perform to the high standards in which we hold them too but all in all not a bad experience!!! We are waiting for landscaping still to be complete but we couldn’t be happier with our pool… thanks Richards!!!
