We are so happy with the outdoor kitchen Maverick and his team did for us. He is not just a contractor, he is a design partner who truly cares about his work and his customers. We had an idea of what we wanted. Maverick had a vision of what it could be. We listened to him and went with his vision and couldn't be happier. He understood what was important to us and the special pieces that we wanted incorporated and/or featured. His team is a group of outstanding professionals who all provided the same high degree of knowledge and craftsmanship that results in something special. Thank you all for your help, guidance and hard work

We have done multiple projects on our 35 year old home. We have worked with a variety of different contractors. This is by FAR the best experience that we have every had. Maverick does beautiful, high quality work. He is professional and prompt. He is personally on the job site every day (really!). He also hand picks his sub contractors. Each of them have been excellent. I have absolutely no reservations about recommending Maverick to friends and family. We could not be happier with his work.

Maverick built us a fireplace and patio. He came out to our house to give us a bid very promptly and within 2.5 weeks, the project was complete. We have the most beautiful brick fireplace- better than we could have imagined. His subs are so nice and very professional. Thank you Maverick for such a beautiful and professional job!

In August of 2014, Maverick Landscaping laid a granite patio, walks, steps and a built-in stone kitchenette with granite counter for our back yard and it is FABULOUS!! Maverick was VERY professional and patient with our project concerns and stipulations. As an Engineer and an Artist, we had VERY HIGH standards for quality, appearance and timing. We might be considered difficult clients in that we were very involved in the process and oversight.

Upon starting some of our exterior upgrades, we found Maverick and couldn't be happier. His sense of urgency and professionalism made the whole project so easy. We had an idea, and Maverick took it to the next level. Our front steps are absolutely beautiful! We will, without a doubt, only utilize Maverick for all of our projects in the future!

Did a great job installing the Kozy Heat Bayport 36 fireplace for a customer in Overland Park, Kansas. They replaced the previous fireplace, a Majestic 36, with a brand new Kozy Heat direct vent gas fireplace.

Maverick built a outdoor kitchen for us in 2008. Working with him was a real joy. Every question or concern was always followed by his laid back answer "I can do that, it won't be a problem". His beautiful granite topped stone island is the key feature to our outdoor kitchen. BTW when I wanted a new grill that required a change to the size of the grill cutout his was right there again "I can do that". He comes highly recommended.

I had an existing outdoor grilling area/bar that needed the countertops and grill replaced. Maverick handled all aspects of the project and worked with us and the material suppliers to assure we were completely satisfied. The craftsmanship was excellent. Would recommend Maverick Landscaping.

Our first project with Maverick was a beautiful patio area with fireplace, grill area and impressive fountain. This project also included tear down, redesign and rebuild of our existing deck to blend with the patio.It was apparent from the get go that the end result would be a very well designed and well crafted area that will definitely withstand the test of time.We have been so pleased with our patio that we asked for Maverick to spruce up our driveway entry, side walk and front porch last Fall. Needless to say, he hit a home run once again.My husband and I highly recommend Maverick for anyone that wants to creat an incredible outdoor space.

Our home has a back yard that slopes down in 2 directions away from the house . Maverick suggested, designed and installed terraces that expanded the patio and substantially increased the usable size of the yard. He also suggested plantings that created a very attractive visual barrier from our neighbors. He did the work exactly as promised and the end result is beautiful and remarkably cost effective.

Maverick Pickering came to us with the highest recommendation of our landscape architect, Kelly Van Elders, of VanElder's Design Studio, and we were not disappointed in any of his work, or the subcontractors he hired to help him with our project. His is an artist with natural stone and we were very impressed with the preparation that went into the base upon which the stone was laid. We have no doubt that his stone work will last and last.

As a landscape architect who values craftsmanship, communication and quality, I seek out contractors who have proven they exhibit the same standards I value in their trade. Maverick Landscaping is one of the few contractors who I feel comfortable recommending to my clients. Maverick understands the design language we use by knowing how to interpret drawings, understand spacial function and offer valuable suggestions. His extensive experience specific to the residential market is vital to anyone wanting to make an investment in their property. I highly recommend you invite Maverick to discuss your next outdoor project.

Working with Maverick was a very personal experience for us, and we have reason to believe we are not alone with those thoughts. Maverick spent quite a bit of time with us going through design iterations and taking multiple trips to look at materials, all the while getting to know us and our tastes. One of our young toddler son’s first discernible words was “Maverick,” and he would run to the window whenever he saw Maverick’s red truck. Take that for what it is worth, but it was worth a lot to us.

There probably isn't a better name for this company or its owner, Maverick. The transformation of my boring and outdated fireplace into a rustic, distinguished, custom masterpiece of art was far from conventional, ordinary, or run of the mill. Maverick is one-of-a-kind!
