“It’s two years later and we still love it! Thank you. We contracted with you to install a raised firepit area to be nestled between a stand of trees and a wetland. I’m sure you’ll remember how absolutely thrilled we were with the results.

This photo, taken two years after installation, shows that the area is as inviting and fabulous today as when newCreations first completed it. Rod was so helpful in creating exactly what we wanted. The entire crew was especially friendly and pleasant. I could not be more pleased with the work and the company. Beyond our expectations. I would certainly recommend newCreations and trust you to do another exceptional job.”

Rod is a true artist. His passion is like no other; he loves to landscape. Over the last twenty years my wife and I have had the most trustworthy landscape contractor in the world. His strong integrity, passion for his work and love for life is a direct reflection of how he treats us, the high level of work ethic and the high quality of work that he composes. His quality of work is that of a true artist. The work that he has done for my wife and I has remained and grown into beautiful well planned landscapes. The artistry includes a paver driveway, paver patio, several different retaining walls of natural stone and manufactured block, berms filled with many varieties of plants, new trees, sodding and seeding for turf reconstruction. Also many loads of dirt, landscape rock, plants, mulch, sand and class 5 for doing some of our own smaller projects. He maintains a true relationship with us and we can always count on him.

Rod Adshead is one of a kind. It has been a true blessing to have Rod work with our family on two landscaping design projects that we are able to thoroughly enjoy in our everyday lives. Rod had a unique, fun, positive ability about him to be able to ask questions, listen intently to your input, look at the project area at hand, and then come up with a design that flows. In addition, Rod will suggest ideas and options that will enhance what you were thinking on your own.

First, Rod designed and built a firepit area in our backyard that included re-shaping the land into a flat space, setting smaller boulders for the firepit, and then incorporating large sitting boulders around the firepit. It’s a very warm, enjoyable setting and more than we imagined. It is like a peaceful setting up north where we can “get away” in our own back yard!

Second, Rod helped bring to life a front yard project that included re-doing our sidewalk and shrubs into a larger sitting area. We really didn’t know what we specifically wanted in this design other than we wanted to have a welcoming, more open area where we could set a table and chairs to visit with others. We shared our thoughts with Rod, yet fully leaned him for expanded ideas and input. Rod delivered exactly this by creating a written design that included pavers, shrubs, plants, and a larger river-rock channel that acted as a natural watershed (for rain) between the mulched areas. Rod allowed us to see and choose the type of pavers we preferred, and recommended and selected all the shrubs, flowers and mulch after consulting with us regarding our likes and hopes. We were involved in the overall design, but Rod is the one who did the thinking, creating, and possessed the overall expertise to make everything happen.

We cannot believe how awesome the entire project turned out! We have received compliments from neighbors, and even those we don’t know, who have stopped by to tell us how amazing our front yard turned out as they had been watching the project from start to finish.

Thank you, Rod. We know you will use your God-given talents to bless others for years to come.
