Ross and Jack's did an excellent job on my drainage and dry well. They were professional, priced right, clean, and timely. Michael helped with the permitting and consulted me throughout the process to make sure everything was done according to my desires. I would definitely use them again and recommend them.

Mike from Ross and Jacks Landscaping exceeded expectations with the quality of work I expected form a drainage system and a retaining wall. Even when the problem was not 100% alleviated Mike made sure to troubleshoot and go above and beyond till the problem was fixed! Always kept me up to date with the status of the projects and offered me his expert opinion when choices had to be made (he's always pretty much right, just listen to him). Will only use Mike from Ross and Jacks from now on for my future outdoor projects! Thanks Mike and staff!!! Pictures do not do the work justice, have already had multiple neighbors and village inspector compliment the quality of work and material.


Our yard had retained some damage from recent repair projects and was in need of grading and sodding. Additionally we had a failing retaining wall in need of a rebuild along with removal of some old flagstone borders. The courteous and professional staff had the work done in a day and on budget! They also explained to me that my retaining wall was failing due to improper drainage. In the course of rebuilding the wall they added a drain feature. I would hire them again myself as well as recommend them to anyone.

We used Ross and Jack's this summer to install a dry well, build a retaining wall, grade the yard and lay down new sod and mulch. Michael and his crew were wonderdul to work with every step of the way! I only have positive things to say and look forward to them helping with a few more landscaping measures next spring.

Michele H. Elmhurst

We have used Ross & Jack's since we moved to our home 5 years ago. We have used them to resod our lawn, build a retaining wall and plant a row of privacy trees. The work Michael and his team do has always impressed me as well as the quality of the materials used. We plan to do other projects with them in the near future. I highly recommend Ross and Jack's.
