What our clients say
It was a pleasure to work with the team of professionals at Motz. More importantly, it was great to partner with friends. They were there when we needed them – we will always remain appreciative of their dedication and can-do attitude.
They go above and beyond to make sure the field is in great shape. Motz installed the field and it is important to them that it lasts. They are highly qualified and they find problems we don't even know exist.
I liked that I could work directly with the sales team who helped guide me on the right specifications to ensure our field was perfect. In Envirofill, we found a safe, long-lasting and high-performance infill that looks, feels, and plays great.
