and his crew are extremely responsive and cost effective. I first met
several years ago, when I requested a quote for a concrete or paver driveway. I never went that route, however CCA delivered and spread ...more driveway gravel on two separate occasions. Recently, I asked to have some topsoil and pathway slate delivered. The price couldn't be beat, and the turn-around time of the request was very prompt.
I highly recommend
and CCA. "

"We purchased a 1940s house that took over six months to renovate inside. The grounds of the house had received very little attention over the years by previous owners and was in need of a serious "face lift.".
and his ...more crew totally transformed our house by creating a new front porch, rear porch and patio, front walkway and a walkway leading to the back of our house. He landscaped all around our house and yard, trimmed trees, mulched, and seeded the lawn. He also prepared the yard for installation of a shed. He will be putting up a window box for us in the near future. We found
through an Angies List Big Deal which offered a landscape design. After viewing his design, we decided to sign up with him to complete the job. We think his price was fair given all the work he did.
is knowledgable and professional. He made excellent suggestions to us regarding the landscape design and he skillfully incorporated our ideas and preferences. He has a very pleasant attitude and demeanor which makes working with him easy. We agree with other reviewers who commented on the increased response time to emails and phone calls. But often
was available by phone and he did eventually get in touch and was always pleasant and easy to talk to. We really weren't in that much of a hurry for the job so we were more tolerant of delays in response and figured he was just very busy as the Fall season approached. His crew was also great -- hardworking, skilled, professional, punctual, clean. We are extremely pleased with the end product and would definitely use
again for any future landscaping or hardscaping needs. All of our neighbors comment on how awesome our house looks , and we just love walking on all our new pathways and viewing our beautiful plants. "

Richmond Patio Pavers Reviews
"The job moved very quickly and efficiently. The only issue we had was that we had to wait roughly 3-4 months for our lights. It seemed that every time we picked a light, they were out of stock or discontinued. This happend several times. It was a frustrating process. However, we are very happy with the end result.
"they arrived on time and worked steadily until early afternoon, taking a break only to go get necessary supplies. they were very professional, considerate of yard plantings, and polite. they cut the pavers so they fit neatly around a flower bed encircled with bricks. what really impressed (and pleasantly surprised) me was that the supervisor (owner?) ...more worked right alongside the workers and there seemed to be an easy camaraderie among them. i am very impressed with this organization and have already recommended them to a friend. "
was recommended by a third party, but did not return my first two phone messages. He later claimed he never received them, despite this obviously being untrue (his firm's answering machine picked up both times). When he finally contacted me (at the urging of the third party), he was very friendly and polite. He came out ...more once and discussed our yard plans. We met one more time for him to present his drawings and suggestions. His plans were fine, although not well suited to our property (an old neighborhood in the city); in addition, they included things we didn't like and incorporated a lot of expensive details. To his credit, he claimed to be open to omitting things (fireplace, dramatic lighting, outdoor speakers, etc.). However he strongly pushed the use of TechoBloc, which I repeatedly said I did not want to use as I prefer natural stone. The bottom line price was very high. We contacted him after that several times, requesting to discuss changes we would like to propose, but we never heard back from him. We ultimately gave up on hearing from him and moved on to get plans from another designer. He finally got back in touch, out of the blue, a full six weeks after last contacting us, claiming he had been sending us emails that we must not have received. Although polite,
ran late for both appointments we had with him, and had a friend waiting out in the car for him during both visits. He was unresponsive to our attempts to contact him, and did not appear interested in designing something to our taste, nor in comitting to the job. "
"We really have
nothing positive to say. We didn't
realize they used plastic after the entire job was done. They broke our fence and sent somebody to
repair it. We have been trying to repair
it ever since. The guy they sent did not
repair, and it is still broken like before, which is frustrating. The top piece of rock on one of the steps ...more is
loose, and they came back to redo it a couple of times, when they were doing
the work here. All the plants they
planted have died. They ran over a low
brick wall with the truck and broke it; but they sent out someone skilled at
fixing it. The owner is a young guy who
is just kind of starting up. He got his
truck up on the low brick wall, and he called his mom. We don't want to curse his career, if he is
learning from his mistake. We had a
really bad experience with him. He was
someone our landscape architect recommended, so we used him. He was responsive, and he was a nice
guy. We are sure, he has learnt a lot
from our experience."
"I always get three estimates for big projects. I knew we were going to want to work with
after talking with
for only a few minutes. Right away we liked him - he is polite, respectful, relaxed, and he has the skills that made our ideas turn out better that we could ever have thought of on our own. The patio ...more is wonderful and very well built. The research he did on the artificial turf was incredible - he brought us samples from companies that we hadn't been able to find on our own and the quality (color, appearance, texture, warranty) was superior. My husband and I were prepared to make a joke out of the minigolf in our back yard (again, it came from the need for a practical solution to a mud problem) but
and his crew made it gorgeous. We also appreciated that he was very flexible with our desire to spread the project out and do it in affordable phases. I wish I could attach pictures to this story - if you could see our yard, you'd want one too!"
"They did most of the work between early December through early January. They were very attentive to our needs and what we were doing.
is the fellow we are working with. He laid out what they could do for us. The weather has been an issue on when they could come. The foreman talked to me every day about what they were doing. They ...more were exceptional about keeping me involved and gave me choices as they were working. The workers were all very cooperative and polite. They did good work. We had planned to have everything done before Christmas but the snow and cold weather wouldn't let them finish until January. They showed us various designs of the pavers even though we had picked out ones. They were attentive to our needs and the end design was really better than we could have hoped it would be. We got several bids and they were cheaper than one bid and more expensive than another. There was not a significant difference in any of the prices but we felt that they were going to do what we wanted done. "
