Here is a brief testimonial from our client:
I am completely amazed at how you and your crew transformed my yard. When I moved into my new home, I had no landscaping and no idea of what I wanted. I was impressed how you arrived with ideas and a vision. Once shown some possibilities, I was able to dream about the outdoor environment that I desired. You took that dream and made it a reality. Your follow-up with all of my projects from beginning to end was excellent.
The landscaping is absolutely gorgeous. The combination of shrubs, trees, etc. is perfect. I love the colors of all the leaves and flowers. It is nice to have different blooms and exciting changes through all of the seasons.
My son just loves his new playground. The design you created for this area is magnificent. The rubber mulch is beautiful and very shock-absorbent for children.
I have to admit, my favorite is my beautiful patio. The first phase of the patio project (the main patio) was excellent. I have a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. The second phase (the walkway from the main patio to the front yard & the grill area) added great functionality. The third phase (the fire pit and waterfall) added another beautiful relaxation area that my guests and I enjoy tremendously. The thing that I am most impressed with is how the three additions do not look like additions. They look like they were done at the same time. You did a wonderful job making it look seamless.
Your crew is extremely friendly and courteous. They take great pride in the work that they do and they do it in a timely manner. I appreciate the great job they have done at my home and look forward to seeing them for more work here this summer.
First we placed layout markings for the projected size of the patio.
Excavation of patio was competed, the base fill was completed to Unilock specifications, and then we tampered the base.
The focus then turned to setting the foundation of the raised patio with Unilock quarry stone block.
We then began to construct the seating walls and pillars.
We then make sure that all the seating wall caps and pillar caps are bonded properly.
After we completed the screening process, we then proceeded to install the Unilock paver stones.
We also make sure that the pattern is followed throughout the Unilock paver patio installation.
We then applied the polymeric sand that will fill the gaps and joints and lock the Unilock paver patio stones in place.
We installed a heavy-duty brick edging on the level areas close to the house.
We removed the original wooden steps and installed a two tier platform steps for improved safety and added beauty.
We installed a burgundy ribbon banding through out the entire patio and on the pillars.
Phase one completed in 2009.
Phase one view from in the back yard.
Phase one view from on the patio.
In phase two the client requested an area be built that would hold her grills so that they would not have to be put on the main patio. A 12 x12 addition was added to the existing patio to meet the clients request.
In phase two we also added a 93 foot walkway from the driveway in the front of the house to the patio in the back yard.
We completed the phase two work in the same season.
We installed timbered walls to level-out the playground area. The swing set was then installed and then we added playground rubber mulch.
We then completed phase three of this project in 2010.
Phase three built on the existing work that we preformed and added more ares to the backyard.
Phase three added a bumpout from the original patio that included a patio, seatings walls, a fire-pit, and a waterfall.
The phase three addition fit perfectly with the existing patio features.
