Five years ago, we hired Chris to put a small patio into the tiny plot of land we have for a front yard. Most of the other landscapers we contacted were uninterested in taking on such a small project.
Although the design we had in mind was irregularly-shaped and called for a herringbone pattern on the patio stones, Chris and his crew were accommodating, fast, and professional.
The grading on the yard was maintained to allow for good drainage, with the exception of the pad we requested be mostly-level for the barbecue we put in shortly thereafter.
Five years later, we've never had any problems with water pooling and maintenance has been a non-issue (we just pull weeds from the cracks about once or twice a season).
We're very happy with the service we received.
