Here’s a 5 star rating for KBS. We had an upper and lower 4 foot high by 60 feet long wooden retaining wall in our backyard. The wood was rotting and the walls were collapsing when we called on Troy. Discussion ultimately resulted in building one 8 foot high wall using modular stacking stone which then gave us a level backyard with a lawn. Troy suggested the engineering company for the required drawings and they were very reasonable to work with. Our back yard was bordering on a city park so all access was from the street. All materials being excavated and new material coming in had be loaded or unloaded on the street. The side yard was barely wide enough for the skid-steer machine to travel back and forth without touching our house or the neighbours fence. This guy knows his machine. The work was done safely and efficiently. Several neighbours commented on the street clean-up at the end of each day – no materials were left on the street overnight. Troy and Cody put in some hot days moving blocks (70 lbs each) and fill material by hand when the machine couldn’t access an area due to safety concerns. They did a beautiful job of curving the walls into the staircase and adding a small flower bed at half height on one side of the stairs. They also supplied and installed the protective railing along the top of the wall as well as the new grass (sod). Troy was easy to work with and went the extra mile in order to resolve anything that was unexpected. We had a few changes from the original plan which added cost and his pricing was very reasonable. Troy would be our first choice if we decided to do any additional projects. Doug & Marie

I hired KBS to do some minor repairs to my aging wood retaining wall. He didn’t shy away from the small job. Communication was great from the start. Troy was quick to respond to my estimate request and came by quickly to view the job. He explained what would be done while viewing the job site and answered any questions I had. During the work, he went above & beyond by offering to help with something I had started plus fixed another small issue he came across during the work. Nice guy, good job! I would definitely consider KBS for future work on my property. Barb F

Troy is exceptionally fair in his pricing. He is friendly and easy to work with. He was also very good to work within my time schedule. The dig out of my yard and the delivery of aggregate was a simple and small job compared to his other job sites, but he treated me as if I was one of his most important clients. I would not hesitate to recommend Troy. He would be my first call should I ever need more work done, or aggregate delivered. Vicki Rogers

I needed a 2 foot retaining wall removed and re built. I had over 5 separate companies provide quotes, Troy at KBS provided the best detail and showed up on time, completed an amazing job that both myself and my neighbors are delighted with. Honesty and integrity, I’d highly recommend Troy and his work. Ruth Hepburn

We were referred to Troy by a trusted friend and were very pleased with the result. Dealing with Troy is easy as pie – he listened to everything we said during the consultation, we were able to work out the details of pavers over text and email and the quote came fast. Troy and his team do excellent work – we got exactly was we asked for and are incredibly pleased. Troy is a master of creating curves with straight pavers! I particularly appreciated Troy’s commitment to easy communication over text we always knew when they were coming (weather was quite variable with rain during our job) and what they would be doing. That really helped since we had a dog to manage. They left our property in pristine condition and we would hire them again, no question!

It’s not a great photo, but you can see the amazing curves!

Troy was hired to repair/replace a wood retaining wall. He and his crew were excellent. Troy maintained communication from the outset of the project to closeout; his pricing was very competitive; and he completed the work as proposed on time without any issues. I highly recommend KBS and Troy! Chris Lange

Troy was super-easy to work with. He took my initial call straightaway, explaining to me the type of equipment that needed to be used for the job, and what was involved. He had useful suggestions that saved me a ton of extra work, and didn’t end up costing me any extra. Professional – great quality of work and appropriate attention to detail. Al Charlton

I had Troy come over to auger some piling holes for a deck and patio project I was working on. Right from the get go he was friendly and helpful and showed interest in the project. His input was helpful for a homeowner . He showed up at site early and was professional in his caution around existing landscaping and lawns to avoid any incidental damage. It was a tight area to work in and the effort he put in maneuvering was appreciated. I would gladly recommend his work for other home owners on projects big and small. Jason Evens

After contacting several companies to remove my old wall and replace it, along with removing and installing a new fence and gates I went with Troy at KBS. He was honest and I felt very trustworthy. He submitted an estimate comparable to other companies It was a huge job that took a month to complete. Troy’s services were excellent. He replaced the wall extending along the back of the property and along the side between two houses, replaced the fence surrounding my property as well as installing a lower fence along the wall at the front of the property. A portion of the back and front lawn had to be re-sodded and that was done. The clean up was done in a timely manner. This job was completed in the specified timeline and when I had a couple of glitches with the lawn he was quick to come back and repair the issues. I would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting a similar job done.. I have had many compliments from my neighbors on the work that was done. Darilyn C.

KBS is a rare gem and should be your first call. KBS’s owner/operator Troy is honest, sincere, competent, professional and does his work in a timely manner. This is a businessman who cares to do a good job, cares about the work he is doing and performs the work to the best of his ability. I highly recommend this firm. Robin G.

Kota Bobcat Services re-sodded the lawn on our corner lot and replaced our fence. Troy, and his team, were very professional and precise in their work. We get a lot of compliments on our fence which looks absolutely perfect. The lawn is beautiful too. Troy came up with a creative solution to address our sump pump outfall issue. He is a perfectionist who delivers excellent customer service at reasonable prices.
Thanks, Troy. Bill & Sylvia.

We hired KBS to strip and haul away the sod, shrubs and hedge from a section of our front yard, then spread new loam and re-sod. Troy did a great job quickly and efficiently and made sure all was cleaned up afterward. Frank V.
