Who is your favorite artist? I didn’t have one ’til now. He is none other than Nick Jones, Soilmovers LLC. Instead of a brush and an easel, A bulldozer suits him just fine. Nick transformed a botched mud puddle into a “Lake of Dreams”. His knowledge in approaching this project was truly thorough and uncanny. I sincerely admire Nick’s integrity and hard work ethic. As you can tell, I would certainly recommend him highly when you consider developing your “Lake of Dreams”. Not only are we enjoying the fruits of his labor, we have invested wisely in our financial future.
During this past summer, my old two acre pond was transformed by Nick Jones. It is now much larger and definitely deeper, with shelves, deep drop-offs, bays and points. The surrounding land contour now has several berms and a swale. Its’ natural feeling is very pleasing to the eye. In other words, Nick transformed my old flat mud hole into a pond that will attract cranes and ducks as well as being an exciting place to fish.
We chose Nick to be our contractor because of his willingness to re-do a poorly constructed pond. We now understand why fixing an old pond is harder than starting off on fresh virgin land. I must say that Nick deserves the credit, since he suggested ideas that I would have never even dreamed.
Nick is an artist and a teacher, not just a “soilmover”. He is willing to discuss the pros and cons of any idea and hee never dodged any of my questions. He is easy to talk with and gives understandable answers. He is up front about costs.There were no surprises. Billing is a weekly event. It is also meticulous. It is noteworthy that Nick has knowledge of county regulations, which brought our project into compliance.
In summary, if I sound happy and proud, I am. I owe Nick Jones a big thank you.
We asked you to build the lake at a site that presented numerous challenges, but you were able to work wonders with it while completing the work under budget.
The results are pleasing to the eye, but we were also impressed with the help you gave us in planning. Your evaluation of the soils prior to design and construction helped us avoid potential difficulties by revealing that our original site selection for the dam would have resulted in chronic leakage. The dam you constructed recently survived a record twenty-four hour rainfall with only superficial damage to the spillway. The suction pipe you recommended and installed performed beautifully, and we could have avoided even that minor damage to the spillway had not persistent rains through out the spring prevented us from planting grass on the dam.
It was a pleasure working with you from beginning to end. You should be proud of the result. Our family looks forward to many years of enjoyment of our lake.
It is rare to find a consultant who puts such thought and effort into his work as Nick Jones. I recently had the privilege to witness his team of professionals build a beautiful lake, and sculpt my raw land into a much more aesthetically pleasing and functionally utilizable piece of property. Nick and his crew provide the quality craftsmanship that it takes to create a body of water that will enhance the value and enjoyment of your land.
We had a general idea of what we wanted and intended to contact a couple of companies to take a look at our plans. After meeting Nick Jones the first time, I did not feel like we needed to meet with anyone else. A lake, two ponds, and miles of roads later, we now know our first instincts were correct.
Nick has a unique vision to see the finished product; when we had difficulty seeing past only the rough land. Although there are a lot of skilled heavy equipment operators, including Nick and his group, the ability to develop a project that looks as if it’s part of the land is an unusual and valuable trait.
The projects Nick completed exceeded my expectations; the real bonus for me though is his generosity in sharing knowledge. I had the opportunity to visit a couple of times each week during the projects and always walked away with sense that I learned something new and interesting.
Artists with bulldozers is the only way I can describe Nick Jones and his crew from Soilmovers LLC. He transformed my scraggly lake into a golf course park-like setting, ready to be stocked with the someday trophy bass I hope to catch when I’m retired. He is level headed, polite, and full of ideas that will save you money, if you listen to him.
He is extremely trustworthy and non-obtrusive and will respect your privacy and your property while he is on site.
Please consider this an unqualified recommendation for Nick Jones.
If you are considering building your dream fishing lake, look no further than Nick. I cannot tell you how pleased I am for the design, strategy, and forethought used in building my lake. I cannot wait until the day comes that I have my kids out there on our lake catching trophy bass and eating fresh catfish for dinner!
He’s the man, and if you want it done right he can do it. And do it in a time frame that you will actually live to see it! He has not only the artist’s eye for design and concept, but he wields a mean bulldozer making the land his canvas.
