We are more than happy to help you when you need help the most. There's nothing worse than being stuck when the snow is piling up. Just give us a call and we will be there and offer you our extended winter service of clearing driveways, parking lots and streets.
There are many excellent advantages to installing a low-voltage lighting system:
* They can light the way for those coming and going.
* They can safely illuminate steps and stair areas.
* They can create dynamic accents in the landscaping and enhance patios, driveways, pathways, decks and walls.
* Above all we can make your yard a very special night experience from inside and thus integrate outdoor and indoor space even when the sun goes down.
For ideas and examples of outdoor lighting possibilities, you may wish to look at the web sites of two of our suppliers, Kerr Lighting and Tahoe Lighting.
We have mastered designing and building exceptional walls for decades using various different materials like natural boulders, concrete block wall systems and railroad ties. We can make them look artistically elegant and formal or rustic and natural. Regardless of the style, they will hold up and function extraordinarily. The choice of materials is entirely dependant on your preferences. We can build them all, even on the steepest and most inaccessible slopes of some properties around Lake Tahoe where nobody else would dare to move a single rock.
We have beautified hundreds of homes with an array of excellent waterscapes: from simple, narrow creeks with small ponds to breathtaking, gigantic waterfalls cascading into big ponds, to pondless, stunning waterfalls and streams. We further enhance and compliment the dramatic waterscape with the right choice of plants. For a stunning night experience, outdoor lighting is strategically positioned. Our water features are designed for an absolute minimum of maintenance and a maximum of joy and fun. We also provide the technical know-how to regulate the water flow so you can adjust it from being a mere trickle and having a soothing sound effect to your soul to showing off roaring, entertaining, tropical gushes of water.
The design is carefully tailored to your lifestyle; in particular, for clients with young children, safety is a strong consideration in the overall design.
All the water features we have installed have noticeably increased our client's property value.

Gail Willey Landscaping,
Our rock wall was completed yesterday. I want you to know how impressed I was with the crew that built it. Not only is the wall a work of art, but the crew took great care in its construction. Our neighbors have a beautiful yard and I was concerned it would be wrecked. The crew worked hard to keep that from happening.

Dear Mr. Willey and Staff
My wife and I recently had the pleasure of working with your firm. We were both thrilled with the professionalism we experienced from start to finish and beyond.
Tom did a terrific job of designing our front landscape and garage remodel. He listened patiently to our vision and expectations and then went to work. The finished product is nothing short and beautiful. Several of our neighbors have told us that they love the changes that we've made.
Greg did a great job in bringing in contractor Frank Bondi to make our garage more useable and aesthetically pleasing.
As they say, the devil's in the details. All of the Willey staff appear to understand that old adage. From the beginning we were impressed with everyone's skill in performing his or her job. They were prompt, courteous and neat. The site was always clean and organized as possible at the end of the day.
Our wonder did not stop, however, with the bold design, professional execution and neatness. As with any construction jobs some problems did crop up. These were all handled to our satisfaction. In one instance your team went way beyond our expectations.
One serious problem with the finish on our Garage floor, that was not the Willey team's fault, had my wife and I fretting. Well, the Willey team took charge. Even though the poor finish was not the result of your negligence, your team went the extra mile and handled it wonderfully.
My wife and I would heartily recommend the Willey team to anyone that is looking for a well designed and professionally installed landscape. It's winter now and we can't wait until spring when our new front yard will come to life.

Dear Mr. Willey:
Sometimes the words "thank you" just don't seem to say enough. The landscaped environment you and your team created for us will be with us to enjoy for the rest of our lives as it stirs our imaginations and delights our eyes with the turn of every season.
We knew the project would be a success from the first day we talked with Tom. He listened to our amateurish vision and turned it into a park-like setting, in the mountains, one with nature. He didn't just design and disappear. He was onsite most every day and was in constant contact. Like Tom, Pedro and his team of workers are enthusiastic and take a great deal of pride in their work. It shows in the details unlike any other landscaping job we've ever seen.
There were no surprises with this project. Except - waking up on the first day to find Mr. Willey himself in the backhoe with a Cheshire grin moving dirt here there and everywhere having the time of his life. This project was done on time and on budget and we actually enjoyed the experience. Now, how many people would say they enjoyed having their yard torn up, strangers and noisy equipment stirring around at odd hours, and a port-a-potty parked out front?
Gail Willey Landscaping, Inc. has staff with the education, skill and enthusiasm as well as progressive techniques and equipment to get a job done with the least amount of inconvenience for the client in a very short period of time. If you need landscaping no need to look any further. We enthusiastically encourage you to go to THE LEADER IN LANDSCAPING: Gail Willey Landscaping, Inc.
With Such Appreciation
Michael and Nancy Dunn
We just wanted to thank you for how well our back yard landscaping turned out. You were able to take our vision of transforming a relatively small space and turning it into a warm and inviting environment that we are sure to spend countless hours relaxing and entertaining in. We look forward to all the butterflies that the plants will attract in the spring and summer.
Your entire staff is to be complimented for always being pleasant and informative. We were also very impressed with the fact that you and your team delivered on every commitment that you made.
Best wishes for continued success!

Dear Mr. Willey,
We wanted to thank you for the wonderful job your company did on our yard. Tom's ideas and suggestions and ultimately his design were just what we were looking for. He was very open to our ideas and was a great pleasure to work with. His crew of Sylvester, Hugo, Gustavo and the others were fantastic. They even let my three year old son "help". You definitely have some valuable employees working for you. We absolutely love our new landscaping, and we can't wait until this spring, when we can see everything in bloom. I would highly recommend them and your company to anyone looking for an original, quality design and installation of their landscape. If we ever have a need for any more landscaping, your company will be the one we call. Thank you again!
Mr. & Mrs. Charles Dame, Jr.

I want to thank you, Gail, Larry, Sylvester, and the rest of the crew at Gail Willey Landscaping, High Sierra Trees and Colorock. You have created an atmosphere in my yard no different than some of the best resorts anywhere in the world. I love having dinner on the patio, and hearing the waterfall and the creek. I now have privacy to roam around in my yard with a morning cup of coffee with the combination of the aspens, pines and firs, along with all the flowers. Before I felt I like I was in a fish bowl with everyone looking in.
At night I especially like being in the spa, watching the city lights and the waterfall. Again, it gives you the feeling of being at a 5-star resort of your own. Tom, you were correct, I should have added more lighting. Especially being in the house at night and looking out through all the windows and seeing the lights shine on the creek and waterfall makes me not want to leave home.
Again, thank you for everything!
I am writing to let you know how pleased we are with the landscaping project you completed for us. It was a big job with an almost impossible time deadline.
You did what you needed to do, got the equipment and people there to finish the job on time.
Not only did you get the job done, but you did a great job. It was a pleasure working with you and the gang.
By the way, your prompt follow up to any issues we had after the job was completed has been greatly appreciated.
Randy and Sue, Reno
We hope all is well with you and Gail. Steve and I just wanted to thank you and Gail for the outstanding job you did on our landscaping! Who would have thought that the back yard could look so beautiful? You took 2.5 acres of sagebrush and made it look like a green, non-desert, beautifully designed backyard. People come up to us all the time telling us how much they like our backyard landscaping. We are looking forward to the vines growing in and the trees and shrubs to mature. You'll have to come back to see the progress. Thanks again for your ideas, expertise and professionalism. We really enjoyed working with everyone at Gail Willey Landscaping.
