“Paradise Restored completely overhauled our backyard. They took it from a simple, poured concrete patio and grass to an entertainment oasis: landscape pavers, custom gas fire pit with a decorate stone wall, gas line to barbecue, custom arbor with privacy reflection wall, electric uplighting, landscaping, retrofitted irrigation system, custom landing stairs with embedded lighting, the whole nine yards.

The staff was courteous, professional, punctual, and hard working. They addressed all of my comments and concerns and always strived to keep me satisfied.
The owner was filled with helpful suggestions and design ideas. He talked the talk and walked the walk. Also, the technical presentation and preparedness was unmatched. The results are beyond what we imagined – we still can’t believe it’s our yard!”

“There are no words of delight that I can use to express my gratification that I contracted with Paradise Restored for the design and construction of my new backyard. From the moment I met Micah, who has such a great passion for the design work and meticulous installation of the design that his company produces, until the last worker was done two months later, the experience was just outstanding.

Micah listened very carefully to the transformation that I was looking for in my backyard and then he and his team went the extra mile and gave me a design that was far far better than I dreamed it could be. I had the entire backyard removed, pavers, drip irrigation , landscaping, decking, a Pergola, a cover for my barbecue, a fountain and fire feature added. I wanted to have sunshine through my windows in the winter but shade in the summer. Micah came up with a sliding cover for the Pergola that absolutely gorgeous and works very well.

This is a very well-managed and very well-run company. The quality and dedication of the employees that Micah had working on this project were excellent. They were dedicated, sincere, hard-working people that wanted to do the job in the best possible fashion that they possibly could. They took great pride in every step of their work, something you don’t usually find in a project of this nature.

I am very proud of the wonderful job they have done in transforming my backyard into an extension of my home. I would recommend paradise restored without hesitation. This company does outstanding design work and outstanding installation of the design. I don’t think there could be any better execution of a design then they have accomplished. I’m very proud that they have done my backyard and if you want a no hassle professional job done for your yard I don’t think there could be a better company. I am so very happy.” (See Project)

“Paradise Restored was such a delight to work with! They gave us the backyard oasis that we so wanted. The plans came back with exactly what we wanted, and were explained in great detail. The crew that came were very respectful of our property, they came ready to work and stayed completely on schedule! It was really nice to see. Our project point person answered any questions we had during all stages of the process. All the guys had and great attitude and you could tell they took pride in their work. It came out beautiful. Thanks!”

“Full service landscape design and construction (hardscape and softscape both) These guys know what they are doing and have a great process from beginning to end. Great designer with thoughtful idea’s put a beautiful plan together and the skilled crew made it come to life. Got a bit off schedule because of some delays in sourcing some products but overall very clean and friendly crew.”

Susan Schmidt, West Linn, Oregon (See Property)


“We worked with Micah and Paradise Restored on the design and execution of a full-scale transformation of our large sloped backyard in Multnomah Village in SW Portland. They did an amazing job! We’ve worked with several landscapers and contractors over the years and Paradise Restored definitely rose to the top. Every member of the team was top-notch. The designer, project manager, and crew were all awesome to work with and we felt like they took our project’s success very personally and did everything they could to help our project succeed. We have already recommended Paradise Restored to several people.”

Yasha Noonberg, Portland, Oregon (See Property)


“Paradise Restored redid our entire landscape to compliment a unique urban home (see Carvajal project), and we are extremely happy with the results. We had a lot of our own creative ideas, and Micah listened patiently to all of it and incorporated them beautifully into the final project. More importantly, when things went less than smoothly (as things eventually will with any major project), he was always on top of getting things back on track as quickly and smoothly as possible (and never at any cost to us).

The lines of communication were always open, and his team of workers were courteous, neat, and extremely accommodating to our neighbors’ concerns (noise, etc). Lastly, we came to see how much mutual respect there was between Micah (owner) and his employees over the couple of months they worked here, which I think says so much about a person’s character. PR’s professionalism, skill, and work ethic are top-notch- I recommend them highly.”

Leyda Carvajel, Portland, Oregon (See Project)


“We worked with Micah and team to do a fairly extensive landscaping project at our home, from re-imagining the space and layout, through full implementation. The team was courteous, respectful and responsive throughout the whole process and the results exceeded our expectations. There were a number of instances where Paradise went above and beyond to help ensure we were happy with the results. I would highly recommend Paradise Restored to anyone, and will be engaging them again in the future!”

Brandon Burroughs, Portland Oregon (see Project)


“My wife and I recently posted several photos of our “restored” backyard on Facebook and received glowing comments from our friends, one of whom – without knowing your company’s involvement – responded with a single word: “Paradise!”

I want to thank the entire team at Paradise Restored including owner Micah Dennis, designer Elizabeth Hodgson and in particular construction coordinator Richard Hadeed, who had to leap a number of unexpected hurdles in order to implement what we have today, and did so with much patience and grace.

Now… time to relax and enjoy the splendid fruits of their labors!”

“We proceeded with the design services of Paradise Restored because we were so impressed during our meeting with Micah Dennis. We were surprised with how comfortable we were with both his personal and, his professional, creative presentation – in other words, we were “sold” on our first meeting, even before his design team came back with heir specific ideas.

The final product, a new fire pit surround, seat wall, and covered patio with breezeway to the house, feels life changing. We wanted a back yard that would be inviting year round. Micah and his team really delivered! Without exception, his employees and other contractors were the best.”

Marge Rosson, Portland, Oregon (see Project)
