Reliable, good work & on time. John and his assistant were fantastic! They came when they said they would come, worked very hard and did excellent work, the amount he charged was very reasonable as well. I highly recommend using John!
Aris, M.

Quick, professional and friendly service! John was fantastic! He quickly answered our email about installation (even on Christmas Day!) and was over to start the install within a week. Despite heavy snow and freezing temperatures, he finished installation on the date he said he would. Professional, quick to respond, efficient and affordable – go with John!
Gordon, G.

John Johnson is by far the best guy you could ask for to do this job! He’s super kind and really flexible- he will completely work with your schedule. We were getting asphalt installed and John came by just to check on that (in between installing the anchor and the hoop)… he’s all about the customer and really cares! Can’t recommend him enough!!
Phoebe, W.

Prompt, on time and easy to work with. John returned my calls and texts quickly. He was very prompt with appointment times and the installation of our ProDunk Gold hoop. He explained everything in detail regarding the install and post install instructions. My son couldn’t be happier!
Paul, T.

John was wonderful! He was able to schedule our install the day after Christmas and stuck to his schedule. Despite the very cold temperatures in Richmond, he got it done and did a beautiful job!
Jennifer, R.

Backyard Creations is the way to go. John and his team were great. He stayed in contact on everything, was never late and often early but would email/ call to say what time he would be here. Very friendly and informed me of everything that would be done. If you’re getting an in-ground basketball goal or thinking of getting one, write down Backyard Creations for your installer. John and his assistant provide the type of service that you want and expect when you’re spending your money.

Review: Go nowhere else!

John is amazing! He is professional to a fault. Responded to my email within the day, during the holidays no less. He answered all of my questions and was very knowledgeable about the inground installation process. We were worried about the sub zero weather we were having and John walked us thru this with his expertise. He carefully watched the forecast and was there the first day the weather permitted. Having said this, the weather was freezing cold and he still honored his word! John even suggested a better place for us to install the hoop, we are so glad he suggested it. A true professional. He followed up with an email a week later to make sure that we didn't have questions or concerns. Other business professionals should take a page from John. PS....He was not even the highest bid I received....went with him because he seemed to know his business and we are so glad we will be too! Thanks again John!

Review: Basketball Goal Installation

The best professional experience hands down. John is very professional, timely and very knowledgeable. The basketball goal installation was perfectly done but what really set him apart is his willingness to follow-up with me regarding whether there is any issue or not. Hard to find such people around!!

Review: Playground & Trampoline

I’ve known John for about 5 years now, ever since he first installed our playground at our church. Since then I have had him install a playground at my house and most recently an Alleyoop trampoline this past weekend. In between he moved our playground from one end of our yard to the other (about 200 yards). My wife and I were wondering how we were doing to make that happen and John had it done in an hour!

His work and attention to detail is second to none. Also, his willingness to go above and beyond to make everything perfect. One of my biggest pet peeves is lack of communication and poor follow up...this is what separates John from the pack. He shows up when he says he’ll be there and is very responsive in communication (which should be the norm, but isn’t).

In summary, I couldn’t be happier and would recommend John to anyone!
