I find Jeff Goller to be
reliable, resourceful and he does a beautiful job.
Georg Syvertsen, Bainbridge
I just wanted to tell you one more time how
happy I am with the work you did at our home last week. You definitely exceeded
our expectations in devising and implementing a plan to correct our driveway
drainage problem. You not only added in extra touches, but the area you worked
in looks even better than before you did the work. I cannot express how
grateful we are that we will no longer have to stress over flooding in our
garage or house when it rains. I have already recommended your services to a
co-worker and would not hesitate to do so again. There isn't a single aspect of
the work you did that I wasn't ecstatic over.
My thanks to you, Felix and Chris for a beautiful

Jeff, Just a
note to thank you for the great job you did on our pond. As you know, this was
something that I thought my son and I could do. As we got into it, it was clear
we were in way over our heads. We appreciate your quick response when Marji
called and your getting started on the project right away. You were here when
you said you would be here, your crew worked hard from the start of the day to
the end, and you completed the pond when you said you would--things we have not
always found in contractors we have employed. The suggestions you made about
materials, lighting, holy-rocks and general layout were much appreciated and
made the pond much nicer than it would have been had we tried to do it
ourselves. Your idea for a beach for the grandkids and a fire pit for the
family make this a real focal point for our property. You were thorough and
professional. We appreciate it. Please pass along our compliments to Felix and
Marcel for all of their hard work.
Landon and Marji Brazier, Port Orchard

from every angle,,,from the sound,,,the lights,,,,'it is beautiful and I
treasure it. Thank you again for such a beautiful addition to my life,
.....I just feel happy whenever I view my
pond.....so amazing, You are an artist!!
Dear Jeff & Carrie, I
thought it was time to put into words the thanks and gratitude for the pondless
waterfall you installed early last summer. It's been almost a year and I
have enjoyed ever season, as well as every day. Since my husband passed away,
this waterfall has been the only thing that has given me peace and serenity,
both in looks and sounds. I watch from inside the house as well as sitting on
the bench I installed close to it. It draws more birds than I have ever seen in
my garden, so we all enjoy it. It is very popular with every visitor I have.
I couldn't be happier with
it and the other work Jeff and his crew have done for me. In fact, I keep
calling them back for more since I know they will do a good job. Thanks again,
Hazel E. Thornton, Poulsbo
Thank you so much for the
wonderful job you and yoru crew did on our driveway...

Dr. Jeff Goller
Ph.D. Surface Water Hydrology and Pondology
Dear Dr. Goller,
Reenie, our daughter Xena, and
I want to thank you very much for both the quick and thorough repair of our waterfall and pond as well as the
most complete cleaning it has ever had. We can now see the bottom, and the water is sparkling clear for the
first time since we purchased the property in 2006. The green is gone!
We would be honored to be included
in any list of your maintenance clients and would be pleased to answer any questions a future prospect might
have about you. We found you and your crew to be punctual, professional, thorough, efficient and even managed
to work with smiles on their faces. Not only that but you were very educational, and we learned a lot about
our pond and waterfall and the hydrological properties thereto. We will follow your suggestions and ask you
to do some planting when we are sure that we have mastered the bacteria treatments you prescribed. We will try
to not name the plants.
Obviously we are all pleased
with your work, professor, and we look forward to seeing you again soon. I enjoy pouring you your one-half cup
of coffee, no sugar or cream, and our visit.
Thanks to you, Carrie and your

On behalf of Manzanita Water Association, I want to thank you again for
the nice work you and your crew did on our flush-valve installation last
week. I thought the work was done in a very professional manner, and I
was pleased that the charges were as we agreed in your original
proposal, in spite of the surprises encountered along the way. I was
particularly impressed with the way your crew worked, even in your
absence. They were always focused on the task at hand, and approached
their work thoughtfully and with a lot of energy. They clearly took
pride in doing a quality job. Again, thanks for your help.
Manzanita Water Association
Jeff, Diane and I
would like to thank you for the water feature and pond installation work
completed in June. The project exceeded our expectations and transformed the
difficult -and prominent- landscape area into a fantastic addition to our home
and property. Seeing some of your other water feature work in person and in
pictures, in addition to the excellent work Goller Grading has done for us
previously, we felt confident the job would be top quality and it is.
It is nice to work with a
contractor who is willing to work with a client, listening to what the client
wants, offering ideas and solutions to reach the desired outcome. Having done
the majority of the work ourselves on our home and property, we are very picky
about who completes work on our home. We appreciate the fact that you and your
crew could come in and complete the work, doing an excellent job in a timely
manner. Both the pond and two streams turned out better than expected. Our
family spends many hours around this area now when previously it was just a
messy, unfinished area that I would dread whacking down the brush and weeds on.
We have had many compliments from friends and guests on the entire project, of
course they want one just like it !. Diane and I have been adding our own
touches to the area, through plantings and the fire pit area, and it is really
looking good. Again, thank you for the top quality job you and your crew did.
Russ and Diane Winger,
Dear Jeff, We can't
express how much we love our pond and waterfall. It is a whole new dimension to
a front yard that was rarely ever used. Now, people walk by and want to see
where the water sounds come from and where they go. It is so very
peaceful and has become a place that we spend time at daily. We are seriously
considering to add a second pond to connect with the existing one.
Your crew was always prompt,
courteous, and cleaned up really well each day they were here. Keep up the good
work! Warm Regards,
and Sharon Hart, Bainbridge Island
Mr. Jeff Goller of Goller
Grade and Gravel has constructed a water feature here at First Baptist. Of
course, we think it is great. Yet, since we lack expert knowledge of such things
this opinion could be questioned. We have had people in the business of building
Aquascapes, other satisfied owners, and the general public tell us we have a
beautiful feature here on our church campus.
Jeff has the right mix of
men and machines to be active in the full spectrum of aquascapes. Jeff is always
looking for new ideas and materials to introduce to his clients.
Pastor Dan, Senior Pastor of
First Baptist, Bainbridge Island
Jeff installed a pondless
waterfall for us at our new home. We were amazed that Jeff and his crew were
done in less than a day and we now have a beautiful water feature right outside
our window! We have had lots of positive comments on it and enjoy the sound of
the water. Neighbors and friends have admired it and asked Jeff if he would
install one for them. We have not had any troubles, our waterfall has been
running day in and day out since last spring when it was installed with
no problems at all.
Jeff's crew worked hard and
cleaned up the site, leaving no mess behind. Goller Grade & Gravel enjoys a
very good reputation for quality workmanship and businesslike demeanor, which is
hard to come by with contractors. We are happy to say we can highly
recommend Jeff and his crew.
and Sindy Piehl, Poulsbo
I LOVE my driveway! Thank you so much!
I have planted grass and put the mulch in the back yard and hope that the grass
will grow and keep the dirt that you so ably placed, where it is. It looks so
nice. I know also that you filled the pot holes in the drive and for that I am
truly grateful. I appreciate all that you have done for me so many times.
Melodee Smith, Poulsbo
Jeff, A brief note to let
you know how pleased I am with the job you and your crew did for me this past
Thursday/Friday. You have a good crew, friendly and conscientious. I couldn't
ask for better.
Meyer, Bainbridge Island
It's been about 3 months
since Jeff brought out Felix and Dale to excavate our property and then organize
the mess into a usable yard. Since then I've had occasions where I needed to
make appointments with various contractors and I have this to say: I have never
EVER worked with anyone who has even come close to the exceptional work ethic
that Jeff and his crew exhibited while working on our project. These guys are
truly one-of-a-kind. They were never late and often early, rarely took breaks,
worked exactly the time-frame expected and did it all with a smile. One of the
things that impressed me most was their ability to accept redirection without
seeming put-upon or disgruntled. The entire experience was altogether pleasant
and I will absolutely use Goller Grade & Gravel again and will also recommend
them to everyone I know.
Thanks Jeff and crew -- what
a difference it makes to this overgrown, wooded site to have an even, smooth,
stable driveway. I hate to see people drive on it, it's so pretty!
Becky Fox Marshall
For years we have had to
deal with failed do-it-yourself landscaping attempts and weeds on our in-town
on-a-hill corner lot; we were at our wits end. We were tired of not being able
to have a decent front yard; feeling that our yard was the “eye sore” of the
neighborhood. We noticed (hard to miss) that our next door neighbor was having
a rock wall built [by Goller Grade & Gravel] in their front yard to relieve the
same type of problem we were having (weeds, hill, corner lot). The next thing
you know; JEFF, CARRIE, and FELIX to the rescue! Two and a half weeks later, a
beautiful rock wall covered the street-side perimeter of our corner lot and the
neighborhood "eye sore” was GONE! Their final product is BEAUTIFUL, their work
ethic is SUPERIOR , and their customer support is FANTASTIC. They consistently
concerned themselves with maintaining a clean and neat work area and never ended
their work day without cleaning the area and putting away their tools. Their
finished work is outstanding: I have had many of the neighborhood residents stop
as they drive or walk by to comment on how beautiful the “THE WALL” is, yet it
is not overpowering (almost 200 linear feet of rock wall along the street). We
can’t say enough about how their creative efforts have transformed our residence
into a home that we are proud to say is ours. Thanks Jeff, Carrie, and Felix.

Here are a few other letters:
We can’t thank you enough
for the wonderful job you did on the grading, graveling and prep work for the
sidewalks and planting beds at our church! Your work and your communication with
us was outstanding and it allowed us to end up with exactly what we needed and
wanted. One job turned into another — all done in perfect timing with our
sidewalk project. We truly appreciate your fine work and the extra things you
did to help us! Thanks again for helping to make the entire project run smoothly
and we hope to work with you again as we continue with our landscaping plans for

After years of driving
around and through the many mud holes that pockmarked our quarter-mile driveway,
Goller Grade and Gravel recently regraded it, smoothing it's lumps and bumps and
adding gravel where needed. Their crew worked quickly and efficiently, taking
great care to not harm nearby shrubbery, and finishing it on schedule, and at
their estimated cost. We've since had them perform other work, and have always
found them to be proficient, on time, and attentive to our concerns. We highly

Fantastic. He did a really
good job, put down the right gravel and got rid of the really deep holes. It
was well worth the money. He did a super job for us. Hilltop Tree Farm is

I want to thank you for
doing such a wonderful job on my driveway. It is a pleasure to come home and not
have to ride the bumps all the way down. You have always been so helpful and
very professional. I am looking forward to having you build the retaining wall
and fix my drainage problems.
