Chris and his team were really great to work with. Professional. Good communication from start to finish. Everything was on time. We would definitely work with him again. We are very satisfied with the final result. He was also very reasonably priced. We got three quotes for our job. One came back at 3 times as much as Chris's quote, and the other was almost double. They paid attention to details like taking care to not ruin the yard as they accessed our job site from the road and cleaning up everything when they were done. We can't say enough good things about Chris and his team.

Chris & his crew arrived on time, they had to remove the existing tree, plant the new tree and create a stone tree well around the nw tree. It turned out just like we wanted. They also installed some small shrubs for us to improve the overall appearance of our backyard. We love it and get compliments on it all the time. Previous to doing this work for us, Chris & his team installed a paved patio and sidewalk in our backyard that we love. That's why we knew we needed to go to him when we had this job come up. We highly recommend this company for anyone who needs pavers, stone work or landscaping done. They are reliable and do beautiful work!

Chris showed up with 3 other people and all of them were seasoned workers. They have all worked for Chris for a few years and new what they were doing. They went right to work and were there for 3 days until they finished and cleaned up. All the product they planted was very healthy and all the edging and mulch was done correctly. We were very pleased with the design, and completed product. All the guys were polite and professional in dealing with us and answered any questions or concerns. We will definitely have them back in the future.

Work was done in a timely manner but the quality of work was marginal at best. Polymeric sand was used and the contractor left residue all over the property. We are still finding hardened substances around perimeter of the pavers, on the windows and siding etc. The process used was insufficient to secure a clean cohesion between pavers. Consequently weed growth was not properly retarded and required unnecessary rework Clean up was very poor and had to have them back to replace some very damaged pavers that were used.

Chris and his team were wonderful to work with. He was recommended by a neighbor who had used his services for a similar project. We were able to agree on a time frame shortly after I contacted him. He was always prompt. Provided careful and competent service. Finished in the estimated time. Had good suggestions for the type of pavers to use and the design of the project. They left the yard in good order each night and when they were finished, you couldn't tell they'd been here, except for the phenomenal walks they left behind. I am unable to comment on the price of his services since I didn't get any other estimates. I could not be happier with the results.

We had previously worked with Chris and his crew on replacement of a failing timber retaining wall with a contoured block version. That earlier work involved demolition and removal of treated posts and lumber while extending a pre-existing section using an Anchor block product. The segmented, angular wall was replaced by a contoured design that provided more room for a prized shade tree. During this initial, 2012 phase, we found Chris very easy to work with. He was receptive to our concepts and offered constructive comments- we didn't want a deferential contractor that would let us make bad choices. Chris speaks up in a respectful way. The crew happily worked with street pavers that were on-site. That earlier work turned out so nicely that we resolved to continue the project the in 2013 as our vision for completion firmed up. There are obvious advantages to completing the entire job at once, but even using design software, it is difficult to feature how it will all turn out. Change orders and call-backs are no fun for anyone. For us, it worked to live with an incomplete project for a few seasons to really know what we wanted. The 2013 work would involve constructing low planters in both the front and back yards, extending the patio work in the back yard, adding edgers and completing sod work. Chris returned with the same crew (a plus for us) and was rarely not on site himself during either project. This work was complicated by an impending family reunion. To avoid damaging existing landscaping, most of this second phase was completed with wheelbarrows and hand tools. Once again, there were design and material selection considerations as well as technical issues, including rainwater management. There was no objection to the owners contributing labor. In turn, we tried to stay ahead of the crew or out of the way. The entire project is now complete- we are delighted and have received nothing but compliments.

Description of Work
A patio was enlarged and integrated with prior work. Two planters were constructed, stormwater management measures were incorporated and an adjacent area was sodded.

Chris came out initially to take a look at the back yard and to discuss the project. I had asked him to put together a design based on some initial ideas and requirements of our own. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about installing patios. We discussed some issues with needing to improve water run off from the back of the house. We were in contact numerous times before start day to refine the design and choose pavers and lighting. Chris was always very responsive to my emails and calls and always pleasant to talk with. On start day, he showed up with his crew and a slew of machinery to excavate and prepare the base for the patio. He worked with me to mark off the perimeter and shape of the patio. When the size of the patio ended up bigger than what I had initially sent as measurements (my error), he didn’t complain- he just said he would order the additional pavers and we’d adjust the final invoice. I had asked him to try and not rip up the surrounding lawn too much and so they laid plywood and made sure that the skidsteers and other trucks stayed on that one small area. This was a real sign of their professionalism to me. I was amazed how the patio took shape in just 1 week. The crew worked through blistering heat and never complained. At the end of week 1, the patio was installed minus the final 4 cap lights since we had to wait for the lights to arrive. I make a partial payment to Chris for the work completed and then 1 week later, he came out and finished the lighting and worked through the electrical hook-ups to the house with our electrician on that day. We used pavers from a vendor who Chris uses and I was pleased with the look of what we chose. The pavers were installed well and Chris used polymeric sand to hold them in place. The job site was cleaned up every night and they moved excavated soil and aggregate base and we never had a “mess” at the house. Part of the project involved them ripping out a concrete landing outside of our adjacent garage access door and I never saw the broken concrete because they just hauled it away. Overall the patio looks incredible and I wouldn’t have asked for a better experience with an installer than what we got with Chris and his crew. I felt that the pricing of the project was very fair and that Chris and his guys were dedicated to finishing the patio as quickly as possible.

Description of Work
We had a new patio put in. It consisted of pavers and 2 seating walls (one of which was a bit taller to accommodate the grill). Additionally, we had low voltage lighting added to the seat walls and regular post lights added to each of the column-ends of the seat walls. We had semi-circular steps coming out the patio door.

He did not charge for the quote. It went really well. His company does more than just asphalt so he was able to give me an estimate for gravel, asphalt, concrete and pavers which was nice. He was able to e-mail me his proposal which I really like. It was a little bit expensive than the other company, probably a little over $1000 less.

Chris came out and gave me estimates on two occasions. The price was reasonable considering the length of the driveway and patio. He listened to my design ideas and incorporated them into his work. We discussed type and color of paver and pattern. The job took 8 days to complete. There were no delays and they were there every workday from start to finish. At the end of the project, I pointed out an area in the patio that was flawed and Chris stayed to personally fix it. The driveway looks great.

If Angie offered the A++++ rating, I'd give it to Chris! This project went like a dream! We selected Chris based on his reviews on Angie's List, and his references; his bid was in line with 2 others - but we got so much more than we envisioned. He's very competent, meticulous, creative, and very easy to work with. He showed up on time (or early), put in full days' work, and cleaned up each day. As with any project, there were the unexpecteds - Chris consulted with us appropriately and asked for our input on solutions. He has the know-how, experience, tools, and work-ethic to get it done ... and he's a really nice guy!

Description of Work
From our first meeting with Chris, he LISTENED to our wants and concerns, and offered his structural suggestions and creative input. He removed an old, cracked concrete patio slab, and replaced it with pavers. The new patio includes a circle and curved borders - lots of precise cuts of bricks. We also had grading and drainage issues that complicated the project, and Chris handled these like the pro he is. From the patio, Chris tied in a new paver walkway to the back door, and added a raised planter bed to work in aesthetically with the change in grade - a wonderful addition! He also installed a paver pad for storage, and corrected grade with a beautiful, boulder-bordered bed around an old (but precious) spruce tree. All of this is tied together by a flagstone path and edged flower bed. He sodded as needed, and the yard looks like new. The project took 15 days, and the outcome is stunning!

Chris's design for our front steps and sidewalk was very applealing and his workmanship is incredible. I first met with Chris to talk with him about what I wanted and then to go over his design. I also met him at the landscaping store to choose the type of pavers and the color. As he was building the steps, he modified the design a little to better fit with the front door and landscape. I was very comfortable with him doing this because I felt he had a good sense of design and construction and I knew the final product would end up looking good. His construction is excellent! Our house has a totally different look and feel now that is very welcoming.

DEB O.

Working with Chris was a pleasure. He returned calls promptly and always showed up when he said he would. He listened carefully to our ideas, and made sure we were satisfied with each step of the project. He is very gifted with envisioning how a project will look and extremely competent in establishing drainage, elevations, site-lines and other measurements. He went out of his way to help us select a paver style and color that we would be happy with. He and his crew made sure the job site was safe and as tidy as possible. They put in several very long days to accomplish the job in the time frame they promised. Our new sidewalks and patios are beautiful and we couldn't be more pleased. In addition, after comparing his pricing with other contractors, we received great value for our money.

The price I paid includes putting in sod for me, but they are going to come back to do that since it was so hot at the time. They stayed within their estimate for the job, and they gave us the best price out of the other bids we got. I think the job was done in a timely manner. They did a good job. I would use them again in the future and would recommend them to others.

Howard G.

They came in as scheduled and were completely done in three days. They removed the old cement patio quickly and without disturbing the existing plants, including a large tree in the middle of the old walkway. The surrounding gardens were also not disturbed more than necessary. They cleaned up at the end of each day and never left a messy work area. In the end, their completed walkway was beautiful and the area surrounding it was completely cleaned up. They were always very respectful of us, their work area and the area surrounding their work area.

Description of Work
They replaced a big, ugly old cement front patio with a beautiful, artistic walkway of pavers. They created a beautiful curved entrance to the front of our house. We were totally pleased with all aspects of the work. Everything was done to perfection and they were exceptionally pleasant to work with. They take tremendous pride and care in their work.

STEVE C.

The work was started much earlier than we had thought and they did a great job! We had a sidewalk and steps whose pavers had become uneven and unsafe. They re-did all of the pavers. They were going to re-use the pavers, but some had been chipped and some had been trimmed to fit by the last installers. They were able to replace any usable bricks with bricks left over from the new patio construction. The finished product looks great, came in before their time estimate, and the area was cleaned up nicely when they left. Chris, the owner, stopped by to make sure that we were pleased and gave us the opportunity to let him know if anything was not done right. Not the cheapest of the 3 bids that we received, but they had fewer reservations about what they could do and how to do it. Highly recommend this company.

I THINK THEY DID A GREAT JOB. THEY TOOK ABOUT 2 -2 1/2 DAYS. I WAS AMAZED AT THE SPEED. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL WHEN DONE AND CHRIS WAS A REALLY NICE GUY. GREAT TO DEAL WITH. IT'S A NEWER HOME AND MY LANDSCAPERS HAD ALREADY INSTALLED THE IRRIGATION SYSTEM. I APPRECIATED THAT RATHER THAN CLAMPING OFF THE IRRIGATION, HE CONTACTED ME TO HAVE THE BUILDER/CONTRACTOR COME OUT TO DO IT CORRECTLY SO IT DIDN'T CAUSE FUTURE PROBLEMS. HE WOULD ALWAYS CALL IF HE WAS GOING TO BE DELAYED TO LET ME KNOW A NEW TIME FRAME.
