Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was amazing at getting this Patio Done in time for a big party we were hosting. He really hustled to get the job done fast and the final result was amazing. Our patio is truly a beauty to use and look at!

Work was completed in 3 days and looks great. Not easy to try and match stones to an existing 14 year old paver patio, but they did a fine job. Cost was reasonable and they were very accommodating to any changes I made at the last minute.

and his crews are easy to work with, professional and they cleaned up the work area nicely when finished. Will have them do additional retainer walls maybe next year.

From our first consultation with
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, until the last shrub was planted,
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
worked closely with us, and made some good suggestions as the job proceeded. They and their crew were professional, efficient, and a pleasure to work with. Their hours were long and often times thney encountered inclement weather. Nonetheless, they finished on time (including the landscaping). The lawn and street were spotless when they left. They came in within bid. We had interviewed 4 companies, but
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
's was by far the finest, and the quality of their work bore this out.

Helio and his crew did an excellent job for a very fair price. They are punctual, competent and meticulous.
During the estimate, we talked about adding lights, stairs and specifics on the design and quality of Pavestone they would use. A couple days later, he delivered a folder with drawings, measurements, the estimate and a picture of a finished job in the color I had selected -- all the things I needed to present to the
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
for approval.
They were able to start the day after I called and told them "We're on!". They were even able to pull a dead tree and replace it with a awesome new Desert Bird of Paradise.
We will very likely use Sunny Landscapes again.

Met with
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and they both listened to what we were looking for. They took down our thoughts of what we had for a deck and put a design on paper. It was very professional and was pretty much what we described. They made suggestions and some things we went with and others we didn't. I appreciate the fact that they weren't pushy with their own agenda. They did what we wanted. They also put a design for a patio and landscaping. We talked about everything from the size of the deck, to the materials used. It's evident they are passionate about what they do, it shows. It was also a big plus that they can pretty much do anything, decks, landscaping, patio, just one company to deal with. The job was scheduled to start a certain week but a lot of rain kept that from happening which was understandable. At times the communication could have been better. But all it took was a phone call to see where we were at. Once the deck began it finished pretty much on time and then the patio and landscaping project started. We had plenty of summer left to enjoy both once they were done. I'd definitely recommend

When I put a request for a bid on my project
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was the first to respond. We set a meet time and he was 10 minutes early! Went over what I wanted to have done. He took measurements and said he would get back to me that day with a bid via email. At 11:30 pm I received his email (lol, good to his word) with a complete break-down of costs.
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was so personable, prompt, courteous, and the fact that his bid came in right around what I was expecting I didn't see any reason to look any further.
We set a start date and the whole thing was completed in 2 weeks! Even in the middle of the project when I wanted to change some things
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was willing to work with me! His crew cleaned up every night and were very professional. When it was all done it was beautiful! And then of course there was an issue! After everything was complete and they were gone I turned the sprinkler system back on and there it was! Water bubbling up from one corner! We had previously capped these off. They had hit one of the irrigation lines during the patio install.
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was there within the hour with his crew! Fixed it! Checked it, made sure it was all good! I had been waiting 3 years to get this done and couldn't be happier!

Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
Landscaping first promised the lawn would be completed by April 5-- It was important to us that it be completed by Kentucky Derby weekend. They ran weeks late-- FINALLY installed the Monday before derby. Badly. Simply rototilled yard and laid the sod directly over the weeds. Then failed to roll the sod into place. As the workers walked over the "lawn", it sank down with their footsteps, leaving little rolling hills across the yard. Mr.
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was not present, the very young man he left in charge seemed genuinely puzzled that I wasn't happy with the sod slapped over weeds. I tried to explain to Mr.
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
why I was s unhappy with the job. The discussion quickly deteriorated into him threatening to just take the sod up and leave a muddy mess for the Derby weekend. Because of my naivety in dealing with people like Mr.
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, in the end, I had to pay for the appalling bad job in full. I never could tell if Mr.
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
really thought the job they did was a good one or if he was just used to rolling over people. I did learn a lot from the experience-- In the years since, I have never had another issue with a contractor or company. Now, I know to cancel a job if it isn't started in a timely manner and not get trapped with bad work, done, slapdash, at the last minute.

was great in getting in touch with us within 24 hours of our order. Within 4 days,
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
arrived to look at the site, and discuss color options. At the time of the consultation, I asked that he also provide quotes for additional work and options.
Within about 4 days we received the renderings via email for the work exactly as specified in the offer without any options. We responded to move forward with the patio on the same day. After a number of back and forths via email about when the work would be done and the company not showing up and not providing status, we contacted
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
directly via phone and he conveyed that due to weather they were backed up again. When we referred to his email message that the work would be done by XX date,
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
called into question our integrity and said that he'd been in the business for a long time and wouldn't make such commitments. During the 2 weeks after this discussion, the site was excavated and patio installed. The firepit itself was not installed until 5 months later. We never heard from
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
Retreats to close the project or ask how we like the work. If they had contacted us, we would have paid to have them do a little more work on the firepit.
Pros:
The patio itself is nicely done.
Cons:
- Timeliness of communication and follow up.
- After the paver portion was done, the dirt that had been excavated was simply raked back over. There were large rocks and stones resulting in manual labor to clean up the yard.
- Also, I really would have liked for
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
to have provided the extra design ideas and quotes that I was looking for. We wanted to build a relationship with a company that could do additional work for us and be creative in our landscaping. What we got was exactly what we paid for - no bells and whistles.

After coming over and giving an estimate at the beginning of June, we were told the project was slated to start "at the beginning of
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
". We received word that - due to weather - work would not begin until "the first week of August". The actual start date was the second week of August.
On Monday, August 11th, tearout began of the old patio. The crew was punctual and worked hard all day. That evening we received torrential rains (2-3" overnight). The crew was onsite Tuesday, August 12th, and began work.
Although we told the crew foreman that we'd prefer if they placed sheets of plywood down as to not destroy our yard and driveway, the crew continued to work unabated. This resulted in complete destruction of the turf of our back yard as well as driveway. I've got picture proof of 3' deep ruts caused by the excavator.
We contacted
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
immediately and made him aware of the issue. He replied this would be fixed.
Upon completion of the patio job on Friday, August 15th, the work crew asked where they could get topsoil close. We suggested driving a mile up the road to a supply store, but they scoffed at the price of $28/yard. Rather, they left a crew of 3 sitting at my house and drove 40 minutes away to get a load of unscreened, wet, clay filled topsoil for just $13/yard.
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was notified that the soil they returned with was so clay filled the workers couldn't break up all of the clumps. We received no reply.
We paid the final bill - which was nearly $500 over estimate.
Fast forward a month: While we're happy with the patio, there is a section of yard about 10'x15' that is so hard and compact grass will not grow. There are balls of clay the size of softballs and it's difficult to even get the mower across them.
We send
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
an email detailing our concerns, advising of the fact that we had made them aware of this originally, and received a reply 2 days later that for "$75" the "cost of materials and gas" they would come and remedy the problem.
After posting screenshots of the email chain on my personal Facebook to voice my concerns, a follow up email from the company stated they'd "fix the problem free of charge" if I were to "remove my negative comments" from my personal Facebook page.
While the work on the patio appears to be done well, I seriously question the integrity of a company that 1) is not responsive to initial consumer concerns, 2) bills over the estimate and claims "they didn't know what they were getting into" even though
Mount Vernon Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
estimated the job himself, 3) offers to fix a problem of their creation for an additional fee, and 4) tries to blackmail it's customers from leaving sub-par reviews. We will not be using them again.
