Our backyard needed help badly. It was overgrown and the back area was something out of a horror movie covered with weeds and half dead plants.
Carlo is great ! We dicussed what had to be done and he gave me ideas that I never thought of. All I can say is it looks beautiful. Carlo worked out in the rain for 2 days and always had a smile on his face when I asked him something or added something to the project(which happened quite alot).
Upon meeting Carlo I knew he was someone I could Trust and want to give my business to. I like to support the small independant business man. The family man, the honest guy trying to carve his nitch in life. I cannot say more about him but the world needs more people like him. Being a woman on my own it is hard to find someone who will not take advantage of you
The job consisted of trimming large cedar bushes, trimming 9' of branches of a huge Colorado Spruce,removal of a apple tree,, weeding and clearing out plants of what I call the "back 40". That was the demolistion.
Now the rebuilding. 4 yards of pea gravel, 3 yards of mulch, 2200 lbs. of flag stone, 4 new cedar trees and about 25 or so plants.laying of patio
stones under existing cedars, 2 trips to the dump and reseeding of the lawn.
Mostly in the Rain!! The trips made with the wheel barrel to the driveway to get the gravel and mulch goes to Carlos brotherlaw Andrew.
Andrew is another one of these great guys, his smile doesn't hurt either.
Now we have a patio of flag stone inlaid in the pea gravel with gardens around the edges with 4 cedar trees on one side and 4 cedar trees on the other. All kinds of plantings that I would never get on my own such as japanese blood grass, blue grass, spirea etc.. Everything is mulched in the garden and under the Colorado Spruce. The yard is opened up now and looks great. And the "back 40" looks so good you could put it in a magazine. By the way he is coming back in a month to do interlock stairs for the front of the house. I am going to have great curb appeal when he is done.
If you can't tell---I highly recommend calling Carlo.
