Built a nice wall - however, he did not follow the plans that he was given. Several changes were made to the design, including changes to the stairs that were not in compliance with what was approved by the city. This resulted in our having to have a railing placed. He also left a pallet of old retaining wall block sitting in front of my house for over five weeks. And, he buried large pieces of concrete from a different job in my yard without my permission and would not return to remove and/or smooth out the area.

They did a really good job. Part of the problem that destroyed the original patio was tree roots, they removed the tree roots and put in the new patio. They also tilted it so when it rains the water doesn't come up to the house, it goes out to the yard. I am really happy with my new patio, it is really pretty. I have even had neighbors comment on it and I've given them Devine Designs information so they can have theirs done as well.

Fantastic, it was a smooth process considering the size of the project. It turned out great. I work from home so I got to watch the process and I was amazed at the detail involved. Those guys worked 8 hours a day with few breaks. They cleaned up each night as well.
Description of Work
We had our concrete driveway and walkway replaced. They also diverted a downspout underneath the paver stone into a pop up drain to eliminate a drainage issue.

We worked with Paul Devine for several weeks to develop a comprehensive plans that would give safe access from the front of our home, down along the side of the home going all the way bottom back of the yard. We installed hard-scape stairs, replaced and redesigned the original paver stones so that we color-coordinated pavers with the steps & stairs all the while improving the drainage system. Most importantly, we expanded the square footage of our garden areas! If we have one key goal for our work with Devine Design, beyond personal safety, it was to enhance our gardens to be bird friendly. This we accomplished in spades. Working with Paul we were able to increase the usable horizontal growing areas and were able to add a significant number of bushes and perennials. The stair design facilitated added railing systems. In the end we have a coordinated backyard landscape design that meets all of our requirements for safety, ecology and local needs. We are extremely pleased.
Description of Work
We have a very severe drop off in the yard in the back of my home. During the original landscape design in 2002 we had just left it natural as heavy equipment couldn't get down to the bottom without raising havoc with my neighbor's yards. In the original landscape plan, we had just filled in the area with bushes and trees. All landscape areas were (and are) covered with hardwood mulch. But now, I am older and found myself repeatedly falling and hurting myself. Winter access was nearly impossible because of not having hardscape access or stairs. Snow plowing on top of mulch was extremely difficult if not impossible. Additionally, because of work done on the footing of my deck, the drainage system was destroyed and erosion was becoming quite an issue. And any solution needed to preserve as many of the trees we had planted back in 2002/2003.

I was referred to this provider by a radiant heat system manufacturer. I requested an estimate for a heated driveway, and we agreed via email on a date/time for him to visit. Unfortunately, he never showed up, and I never heard from him again.
Description of Work
Failed to show up to provide project estimate.

[member name removed], This has been the busiest spring I can remember and as an owner/operator I work onsite all day and do appointments at night. I apologize for the appointment and any inconvenience my absence caused but I wonder if I deserve a bad review and F rating on Angieslist? I would be happy to reschedule and meet with you if that is acceptable, but please do not pass judgement so easily. I provide a great service to my clients, but occasionally make a mistake. Please remove or edit your rating.

We haven't had the service completed yet because it is too cold and we are waiting on a refinance to pay for the project. I was impressed with Paul's knowledge and professionalism and his interest in green options. Paul provided us with solutions to our driveway issues that weren't necessarily the most expensive options.
Description of Work
Paul came out to our home and provided us with an estimate for permeable pavers for our driveway. We were interested in installing a heated driveway where we currently have concrete. He told us about another option that was actually cheaper and that was to install permeable pavers. This solution is earth friendly and saves all the runoff from slushing and pooling in the driveway and the excess flowing into the lake across from our house. He advised we might be available for grants from our water district.

Excellent. The key to working with Paul Devine was the planning process. We had a specific idea in our heads and we were working with completing the landscape/ hardscape area around a newly constructed Radiant Metric semi in-ground pool from Performance Pools Inc. Our property topography from the street level to the back of the property line dropped in excess of 15 feet. In certain areas the slope fell 30" in 25 feet. This was not going to be a cookie cutter patio and we wanted a hardscape access to the pool that was exposed from the ground level anywhere from 12 inches to 30 inches. We spent approx. 3 weeks during the planning process. Paul made multiple visits, created multiple 3 dimensional drawings of the plan and worked diligently in the material selection process to arrive at a design that had the look and feel we were after. His efforts during the planning and design resulted in virtually no changes to the plan during installation and no changes in materials. The work went fast, The crew worked hard, the site was kept as clean as you could expect given the size and scope and volume of materials delivered. The only delays were weather related. They stayed on the job until it was finished. Material deliveries were scheduled timely so as to not create any delays. There were no complaints from neighbors as to any mess on the street. There was only an 8-10 foot wide area for skid loader access to the construction area and the crew avoided any damage to the neighbors lawn. It has been almost 10 months since completion. We wanted to wait for the area to weather the winter season to see how everything withstood the heaving due the freeze/frost cycle etc. I would say everything stood up well. We have one small area on the raised pool entrance deck that requires a small repair due to some apparent loss of some underlying base over the winter. We contacted Paul Devine in May and he was quick to respond and he is scheduled to come and fix the problem in early June.

Overall the project turned out OK. The retaining wall and waterfall feature were very nice (this is their strength!) and we were happy with this portion of the engagement. The problems for us occurred during cleanup and sodding as this was extremely poorly done. Literally for months afterward we found old retaining wall blocks just thrown into the woods behind our house and at least 75' of black edging material was simply ground into the dirt. We kept finding this over time and had to make a trip to the dump to dispose of all of this extra material. The yard was not leveled and we were short over 50 rolls of sod and what was laid down was done poorly (not nearly enough black dirt) and very quickly on a Friday afternoon. I would use them again for paver/retaining wall work but nothing else as the mess left behind left a sour taste in our mouths... Our neighbors also used this company and had the exact same experience...
Description of Work
We used them for a backyard overhaul including removal of 20 yards of dirt and plant life. They installed drain tile along with a retaining wall, small paver patio, waterfall feature and sod.

Thank you for your critique. I am sorry to hear that we fell short of expectation in the sod/dirt/land clearing department. As you fairly pointed out, this is not our area of expertise as we offer hardscape services and only perform services like sod and land clearing as sidenotes to large hardscape projects and this particular project eliminated some hardscape features between inception and installation due to a property dispute with the association. Based on this review, we will make changes this year to provide a higher level of service. I plan to hire a softscaper exclusively for this type of work next year. Thank you for your kind words regarding the retaining wall and paver landing construction as this is our specialty and where we take great pride in providing a very high level of service. Kind regards, Paul and crew

Wanted to capture most of my water runoff by installing a permeable drive way. Paul's company has done this for several commercial customers, and I selected him based on his past work and willingness to work with me and my project. Paul was even very helpful in helping me rework my previous pavor project to blend in with the overall driveway
Description of Work
Installed a permeable based driveway. 20 inches of base was removed, fabric separator was installed , then a large base of 1.5-3 inch rock base was put down, then an additional 2 inches of crushed granite for leveling. Paul help me select a Belgard Eco-Dublin Ashbury Haze Permeable brickstone as the main feature of the driveway, with an added touch of some solder/sailor couses in another product. All of my front facing roof down spouts now empty into this basen and I think I've reduced my hard space by over 2000 square feet.
