When Lee came for the estimate, he brought his portfolio and was able to turn quickly to some options based on what I wanted. This was very convenient and helpful. It took a while to get on the schedule and it got pushed a couple times, though we realize this kind of work is often dictated by weather. A couple weeks ahead, I was told it would likely be the week of Oct 9. On Thurs Oct 5, I learned it would likely be Oct 10 but I'd be contacted on Mon Oct 9. On Mon evening, Lee texted saying barring rain on Tues, his guys would be coming Wed mid morning. After no sign of anyone around 11am on Wed, I texted Lee to inquire and he said his guys would be headed to me mid day. Just before 6pm, still no sign, I texted asking if it would be Thurs? Within half an hour, Lee texted and apologized, checked with his team, and replied that they hadn't finished up another project till 3pm and they'd be to my house about 8:30am on Thursday. They arrived Thurs morning Oct 12, at 7:15am! which caught us (and perhaps some neighbors) a little off guard. But the men (8!) got right to work and indeed it was completed in a day as Lee stated (they left at 4pm). They had to remove a fence post but returned everything to normal before leaving. They tilled, seeded, and added hay to the areas dug up by the equipment. My husband, who built the fence 17 years ago himself, was impressed that he wouldn't have known they'd removed a (cemented in) post. And they even added some mulch after digging the edge around some of our shrub and tree beds. We love the patio and the blending of the gray Porter pavers to our red brick path is just perfect. And my husband and I have already put together our new gazebo. Just waiting on the furniture to enjoy our new outdoor space.
