New patio and walk way

AVL completed the project in the stated time. Nick was very patient as there was shortage of interlock stones and we changed our minds a couple of times. The patio turned out great and has really improved how I use my backyard. Nick and Anthony provide good suggestions/advice.

Backyard overhaul

Happy to provide a reference for Nick and his team at AVL! The end product looks fantastic and we remained on budget with no surprise expenses. Despite obstacles like the weather and COVID restrictions, Nick performed the work efficiently and stayed with the job until it was complete. Nick was accessible by text and by phone and he had some great design tips that we incorporated into the work. Thank you!

Outdoor Landscaping Project

In the art of Landscaping, AVL Landscape & Design are second to none. Vat and his team of professionals, including John Sr. Just completed a landscaping project at our place of residence with our outmost satisfaction. With 15 years of experience, they evidenced their knowledge and expertise by designing and creating for us a beautiful and functional outdoor living space. During its genesis, Vat took the time to listen and to build on our ideas while at the same time provide expert advice about the most appropriate materials and finishing touches suitable for our design as well as providing timely samples of material under consideration. The result was an attractive and cost-efficient landscape project that enhanced the functionality and enjoyment of our outdoor space. They completed the project in a timely fashion, always paying attention to details and seen that the job site was always left clean and void of any obstructions. All debris was removed off site on a nightly basis. The entire team was punctual and hardworking and did not hesitate to extend their hours to complete the job at hand. The result of their dedication and workmanship paved the way to the completion of a new interlocking pad, the installation of flagstones both in our rear porch and front entrance as well as the installation of pavers along the side walkway. All the work was done with the outmost professionalism and creative patterning and was completed in five consecutive days. We are certain this project will add value to our property and many years of functional use and enjoyment for us. We highly recommend AVL Landscape & Design for all your future landscaping needs as a team of professionals who are very reasonable and very accommodating with all your requests. They have gone above and beyond to please us. They did an excellent job and we would not hesitate to call on them again for any future landscaping needs. Thank you Vat and your team.

Patio installation

AVL Landscape & Design Inc demolished our very old ground level wooden deck & installed a lovely new concrete paver patio. The crew also did some modest repairs to our upper deck. They removed all of the wood & sona tube debris, carefully prepared the base for the patio, and installed the pavers in a very pleasing layout. We are very happy with the results and are enjoying our new patio very much. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone wanting a new stone patio.

Backyard Renovation - Interlocking

I hired Nick and his crew to do interlocking for my backyard. He listened to exactly what I wanted, he provided helpful suggestions to improve the space and was overall a delight to work with. I highly recommend using AVL and especially Nick for a backyard renovation. Him and his crew are hard working individuals who get the job done properly and efficiently!!

Disappointed

If I knew what I know now, I would have gone with a different company but you see 10 out of 10’s and you think, how can you go wrong. It started well enough but ended up being a very unpleasant experience in the end. My wife and I felt disrespected and that our time meant nothing to them and really regret the amount of money spent.

The last picture is the frame we asked for, but I ended up completing in the end.

In point form.

- They cut a piece of the step edging while it was in place and you can see the cut on the riser below and is visible as you walk up to the front door.

- We requested multiple times that the steps leading up to the house be miter cut, they ignored this request. It was attempted by them 3 times and in the end, I paid an additional $64 for material and 6hrs of my time just so we could get it done. The last attempt was arranged to be completed on a Saturday. We made arrangements with Nick for Saturday to come by at noon and complete the steps, he never showed up I had to end up calling him, he said he would call me later that night but didn’t. During that call I offered to come and pick up the stones myself so I could just get the steps completed, he said no, and that he would like to finish the job, I was ok with that and I told him I would like to be here when then the work is being completed so I could again explain the miter cut look that we wanted. He said that he would call me later that night, he never did. Sunday rolled around and still we never received a call. On Monday I received a call from my wife while I was at work on that Monday morning letting me know that Nick just showed up. I sent a picture of the miter cut and he told me that he didn’t bring the right tool, I asked him just to leave the stones there and not to glue them down, I will just do it myself. He even ignored that request and proceeded to chisel the stone and glue it down anyway. This is why I had to spend additional money to replace those stones.

- We were advised that they could incorporate our existing "giants tooth" stones no problem, after their first go at it and them letting us know the job was completed, they left it in a bush and when they came back a second time to fix this and many other issues, they actually chiseled the front of the “giants tooth” off to make it fit around what they had done. There are actually still pieces of it behind the landing.

-Very messy. I had to pressure wash my driveway, they used our hose and it was covered in mud, I was able to clean it both, so I don’t understand why they left those in that condition.

- There were some gaps in the risers and I pointed them out to have them closed, I was told that "you can't fix that and If I had a problem with them, reach out the manufacturer and tell them", So, when I did the finishing work on my steps, I repaired the gaps myself.

- They have the cut side of some stones showing, and another chiseled piece right at the beginning of the bend, I'm going to replace them in the summer.

- Leveling issues all around. I have re-leveled the top 2 steps, but where the garage foundation and the stone meet, the stone is higher, so water builds up between the garage door and the stone, in turn the water comes into the garage now. With it being winter, ice forms and the doors weather stripping sticks to the ice. Nick did mention that the stone has to be higher and I told him I never heard of that before, but I trusted him, and now the north side of the stone is below the garage foundation and the south side is above.

The most disappointing things out of all of this is that my wife and I were made to feel like we were the bad guys for holding them responsible for what we paid them to do and for making us feel uncomfortable for doing so. We really felt like we couldn’t have any expectation and should have accepted the poor workmanship. Disappointingly unprofessional, the work was clearly rushed the first go around, and I to complete some of the work myself just so the nonsense would end. I have hired contractors before, but hiring them was defiantly one of my bigger mistakes.
