Hardscaping Reviews in Durham


The general clean up was done in february and went well; they did a reasonably good job there, but after that it was all down hill and spiraled so. I was required to pay a month in advance of the service. In april they did not mow biweekly; it was almost 3 weeks before they returned, and the grass/weeds were so high you couldn't see my 50 lb dog lying down in the grass!
They returned the first week of may for mowing, and then were not seen again for just about 3 weeks, at which time the grass was again significantly noticeably high; so much so that I got a nasty letter from my
, suggesting I "consult with a professional landscaping company". I promptly sent them a copy of my contract so that they could see with whom I had consulted, and the services that I was paying for.
Their initial second mowing for may was actually one single pass up and back the width of the lawnmower in a single strip down the side of my property line and that was it! So it looked ridiculous for over a week until they returned on the 30th to complete the mow after several phone calls and emails from me. They did no pruning weeding or other care for all of april or may, until their last day of service with me on 5/30, at which time they almost left without completing except I was home and made sure they did the work that was contracted for.
They also kept trying to pressure me to pay for the mulch, before they did the weeding or gave me any of the info I was looking for on plantings. I'm not a professional landscaper but I am reasonably certain that it makes no sense to
down mulch BEFORE you weed and plant. They were given a detailed list of desired plantings, as well as a blueprint plan that I have previously paid for regarding how I would like the property to look over time. I made it clear that I am on a budget so would need/want to do plantings in increments.
I have pics I would like to share because I believe one should have information/facts to back up such strong statements. When I posted a sign on my front lawn that said "this property is maintained by Leisure Landscaping" (in the poor state they maintained it) , 2 neighbors in my subdivision came by to tell me that they had used this company briefly in the past, but cancelled due to very bad/terrible service as well. The person (
) in the office seems very nice and attempts to be responsive; it is the owner
who makes one believe that the name "Leisure" in Leisure Landscaping is for the benefit of the company, not the client.

By looking at his website, you can tell that the size of our job was small in comparison to what he normally does or can do. That did not stop them from being ultra attentive and professional. We received three separate quotes and there's was in the middle. However, the quality of materials they used where much better than the other two.
was here everyday. They don't work on more than one project at a time. His "assistant" (she seems to do a lot more than what that title infers) responded to my questions faster than anyone else that we spoke with. One of our favorite parts, our daughter was infatuated with the workers who always waived back with a smile when she waived to them. All in all, I doubt we will ever use anyone else for this type of work. I have already referred them to two of our neighbors. Oh yeah, the quality of work was awesome and we have spend most of our time on our patio lately.

The finished product and job looks wonderful. The original estimate was 4-6 weeks before they would have an opening to perform the job.

had an opportunity to do it sooner and called the night before they started. My wife spoke with
Durham Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
that evening (I was already at the campground) and informed him she would only be available on Thursday as we would be out of town Friday through Wednesday of the following week and would not be there to open the gates to the property. She understood it would be a one day job and
Durham Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
did not understand that he would not have access to the property on Friday to complete the job. When the crew left before the job was done she called and emailed to leave messages to schedule finishing the project. Around 9 P.M. that night I finally spoke with

and made sure their crew wasn't going to show up Friday morning to finish when they couldn't get in and to schedule the completion.

and his crew showed-up and completed the job as scheduled, they cleaned-up the area and have given me a beautiful circular patio in my garden.

His approach was considerate of our budget; his estimate was detailed. The quality of the sod was topnotch; very fresh, and the crew did an excellent job of installing it. He is very knowledgable, rapid to respond to calls and emails, and a pleasure to talk with. we've had heavy rain on three occasions, just in the two weeks since the work was done, and no more standing water! Before the work was done, even a moderate rain would have left us in a couple of inches of mud, for days.

From start to finish,

's and his crew went above and beyond. We are very pleased with the results. We will recommend

to our friends and family and call him for future projects.

The company wanted to do all sorts of very extensive and expensive drainage work, more than doubling the expected cost. When we spoke on the phone, she told me about the "sale" that was being offered thru Angie's List. Had I known about all the other conditions, I would have never pursued the contact. About the drainage: it's expressly prohibited by my Homeowners Association. I feel like it was a bait & switch (sale prices substantially inflated by unasked for and unwanted addons).

and his company were wonderful to work with. My next door neighbor and I had been talking for about a year about hiring a contractor to resurface our two driveways and create a walkway between them. I also had a soggy back yard and needed to address some drainage issues.
Durham Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
created a plan with us that satisfied the needs of both homes and is very attractive. He laid a crushed concrete foundation for the gravel driveway, created a quarter circle bump-out drive to accommodate an extra car, installed edging along the driveway, installed a French drain to carry the run-off to a storm drain on the back side of my yard and used paving stones to create a shared walkway with my next door neighbor that leads to a patio at my front door. I have a separate mini-apartment attached to my house which I wanted to be accessible to someone in a wheelchair or using a walker. He graded the patio to create a gentle ramp to the entrance so I would not need to install steps. He was also careful to create level entrances to the storage room where we keep the lawnmower and surprised me with a similar entrance of paving stones to the bicycle shed next to the driveway. I was most impressed with his understanding of drainage issues and the care he took to make sure that the water was directed where it needed to go. He ran new drains from my downspouts and connected them to the French drain. He installed drains at the ends of both driveways to connect to the French drain as well. Our neighborhood has a lot of drainage issues and he really has a good sense of how to deal with them. Our neighbors and Icollaborated on the drainage and walkway.

(his office manager) worked with us to clarify who would be responsible to pay for which parts of the project.

and crew showed up every day early and worked diligently to get the work done. The started and finished on schedule. Overall, the work exceeded my expectations. It takes a while to get work scheduled with this company and they are not the least expensive option, but this is truly a case where it is worth waiting to have the work done right and you get what you pay for and more.

did his magic again. We hired

and crew again to build a stone wall. The wall is stunning! I wanted to attached photos, that is the best review.

Although weather-related delays of other projects caused the initial start date to slip a bit,
Durham Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
kept us informed throughout. When
Durham Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and his crew arrived on the first day he took time to answer our last-minute questions while his efficient crew removed our condemned shrubs in minutes. The cost of this project began to make sense as we saw the work in progress. Suffice it to say, there is a lot more to building retaining walls than stacking stones above ground level. The results are lovely, and their workmanship is excellent. We plan to use them next year to plant shrubs in this area.

The service and attention to detail were excellent. I don't know what more we could possibly have expected.

came to our house at least three times to formulate and revise the plans, then he and his crew performed all the work carefully and on time--and the place now looks vastly better, just as he had promised. We would not hesitate to hire him again. He's easy to work with, punctual, polite and eager to please.
