Wilmington Patio Pavers from people just like you.

gave us a fair price for the patio we wanted and promised if we agreed that day (Sunday) that his team would start on Wednesday promising" it would be done in 2 days. We signed up. . 1. The team started mid day Thursday, a day late, but not a big deal. They worked all day Friday and finished the patio and had the steps started by Saturday evening. Monday they finished the steps. We were not really concerned about them starting late or that they took longer than expected. The workers did an awesome job on the patio and steps, spending extra time to make sure everything was lined up and that it looked good. 2. One of the bricks used on the steps had an obvious defect in it, the top step didn't look very good, and the bottom step was not centered the way the other two steps were, so we asked for those to be fixed. He agreed to replace the defective brick and fix the top step and we agreed to not push for fixing the bottom step.
promised they would be back out on Friday of that week. One month later, it actually got fixed, after multiple emails sent to the owner and getting very little response from him. 3. We had complained about how the loader they used to take the bricks to the back of the house had gauged up our yard, all around the side and rear of our house, even after he promised they would use plywood to prevent this (which they didn't use). We knew there was going to be some damage, just because they were putting the patio in during the spring and the ground was going to be wet. He promised to bring in dirt and reseed the ruined parts of the yard, and he partially did, but the yard is still messed up even today. Again, many emails were sent to the owner and company email id's (including messaging the Facebook page) with no response, I finally gave up trying to reach him. 4. It took him 2 months (and multiple email requests from me) to get him to acknowledge that I had paid him in full for the work and actually send me the final receipt. 5. His team had to take out a sprinkler head that was going to be in the middle of the patio. I had asked the day they took it out to have it since there was nothing wrong with it. 6 months later and many emails from me, I have not seen it returned to me. He offered to buy me a new one in June, I have not seen it (its October now). 6. The loader also ran over and ruined another sprinkler head on the side of the house. Never received a replacement for it. 7. They had asked to dump the sand and filler material on our driveway and we agreed. They used the loader to carry the material to the back, however, when using the loader to scoop up the material, it scrapped up and put gauges in the driveway. I mentioned this in several emails and the owner never acknowledged the issue and it was not fixed. . The punctuality and professionalism ratings are heavily skewed by the owners lack of customer care after he was fully paid and all of the non-patio issues that went unresolved. If I would have done this review immediately following the work, both ratings would be higher. The responsiveness category is based mostly on the owners lack of resolution of warranty issues. . Again, I have to admit, the patio and steps look very good and we received several comments during the party about how nice they looked. That is why I put the quality category as good. The team that did the work was professional and very good at their job. They were careful when laying out the patio, and took their time to complete it the right way. . After the patio and steps were finished, I recommended
to several neighbors and friends. I have since stopped doing this because of the warranty issues. . If you use this company, I highly recommend making sure the contract states that you do not have to pay in full until all issues are resolved.


"When we decided to replace our existing concrete patio, I did due diligence and got several quotes. The first guy came out but never followed up with a bid, the" second sent a bid two weeks after his visit and never followed up, and the third never bothered to show up for his scheduled visit.
arrived on time and went right to work, noticing right away the issues we had with an incorrectly sloped patio and immediately discussing the best way to slope it away from the house. He made several design suggestions and then sat at our dining room table and wrote out a quote right away. Not only was his quote in line with the one actual bid that we had gotten but he also suggested
lighting for the seat walls and steps (something no one else had even mentioned as an option). As soon as we accepted the bid,
called and we were given a tentative start date (which only ended up a week out due to rains). About two weeks before the start of the project, we met with
at his supplier to pick out the brick pavers for the patio and stones for the seat wall in a setting where we could actually see a wide variety of pavers in various settings. On the morning of the start day,
the layout on the ground and we were able to make last minute size changes to the design.
and his crew did an excellent job with the build and left the area spotless at the end of each day. We now actually enjoy sitting in the backyard. If you need any kind of paver work done, I would HIGHLY recommend
- the whole experience was amazing!

Creating a unique look for your yard means more than just cut grass, trimmed shrubbery and pretty flowers. Hardscaping, the creation of any man-made structures on your lawn, is just as crucial for overall appearance.

Angie's Answers

I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.


One of the more difficult issues facing you will be making sure you compare apples 'n apples while understanding the differences between apples 'n oranges.

Some things common to all:

How far from your (water) meter pit to the home?

Do you know what sort of water pressure you have?

Those two questions sortta drive the rest.  How many sprinklers you have is a piece of the puzzle but it is lower on the issues list than how much water pressure and gallons per minute of flow (gpm) you have.  Knowing the water pressure and gpm coming to the house is important because it is the info divided by the flow rate of the heads to tell you how many you can run at a time.

 That, plus the number of heads it takes to cover your yard will let them decide on how many zones to cut the yard into (each zone is X number of heads that run at the same time).

Will the different estimates be for systems that are all parts from a single manufaturer or will it be a collection of brands?  Some will tell you that the parts (controller, back-flow, heads and even specific heads) are better from different manufacturers while others will tell you that all from a single manufacturer will give you an optimized system.

And, are the contractors equally certified?  Not only education and experience but certifications from the various manufacturers who's parts they want to use.  And, will their installations be the same?  Will they open trenches all around your yard and be a week getting the stuff layed, connected and back-filled?  Or, will they pull the flexible pipe and be in 'n out in one day with water flowing to cover their intrussion before they leave that day?

Will your system need to be blown out with pressurized air at the end of the season to avoid winter freeze and bursts or will it drain automagically?

I know, I took your simple question and made it hard.

When I bought my system about 9 years ago, I had a variety of estimates and the differences sortta fell into the mess I listed above.  The low estimate was a person who seemed to be from the "get it in the ground and fix it later" school.

The highest estimate was from someone who seemed more concerned about my yard and the final result than I was.  The low person was using parts 'n pieces from a variety of manufacturers.  The high person was certified by the company that made all the parts he was wanting to use and he carried a fairly high rating from them for his past performance..  He would vary for me if I wanted but he had sound reasons from the controller to each of the heads as to why he preferred his "brand".

It doesn't look like you are a member of Angie's List.  Given the size of the investment you are looking at, this might be a great time to join and see how others in your community have rated the contractors you are considering or if there is one you should add to your list. 

My yard is between 12 and 15,000 square feet less the house, deck, two mini-barns and it is interrupted with a number of blocking (blocks the stream of water) evergreens and planting beds.

The low estimate I had was about $2,500 and would take three days to put in from the time they began to trench.  I don't recall how many heads he wanted to put in but if it was off, he'd be able to put another anyplace and tie it to the nearest zone to give me good coverage.  Uh, this was the get it in the ground 'n adjust later person.

The high estimate I had was around $4,500.  This proposal was for seven active zones each having 5 to 7 heads.  There was enough capacity (extra zone controllers and space within the system controller) built in to add drip irrigation at a later date for the planting beds without having to replace anything.  He drew the entire yard and gave me a copy with the heads marked showing the "throw" of each and the overlap he built in to avoid any missed areas.  And, they wanted to arrive in the morning and leave that evening with the system watering to cover their tracks throughout the yard.  One day and they would not leave until it was working as advertised!

I took the high estimate.  I have a neighbor who bought from the other folks.  Both of us are happy.  He is really happy because each time he calls his company for adjustments or corrections (yep, they got it in the ground and are still putzing with it) they are out within the week, they are really easy to do business with and their service calls' costs haven't gone up a whole bunch.

Sorry, you can't look at the price and divide by X number of heads and have a fair comparison.


1) IF you are talking the root crown - the portion where it is not one solid truck or "bole", but still a solid or near-solid mass of roots coming off the base of the trunk, then that has to come out on way or another. Typically, once you get beyond about a 3 foot circle then you are in the radial portion of the roots where they spread out laterally, and are a foot or more apart, and new roots can grow in that area fro the new tree OK. Of course, be prepared to have to trim some volunteers so the old tree can't come back, and be sure to fertilize the new tree per recommendations because the old roots will still be trying to extract water and food from the soil to support the tree that they do not yet realize is gone. Do NOT put stump killer or poison in the old tree - will kill new one too.

2) The proper commercial way to do this is to have the entire root crown and larger roots removed with a stump grinder - looks like this -


You need a tree service that can grind down at least two feet below ground level and remove the root crown and larger root segments. If you hve large roots running laterally quite a ways, he can grind them up too - ditto to "trippers" sticking up above ground. Just be sure to have it clear (spray painted) upfront how far he is going for what he quoted - typically about $150 for tree up to 1-2 feet in diameter, up to $500 for a massive sycamore or walnut or cottonwood or redwood with 6 foot diameter crown. While you can rent stump grinders at tooll rental places, I REALLY do not recommend it - the rental ones you can afford to rent for one use are pretty light duty, and they can chew a person up in no time flat if you lose control when it snags in the wood or hits a rock.

3) Another way is to go out to where the massive roots taper off to something you can reasonable cut - say 4-6 inches in diameter, and cut them all in a circle around the stump, then with a come-along or CAREFULLY (not more than a few hundred pounds) with a vehicle with a trailer hitch, put a steady pull on a good rope or strap or chain in a shallow notch cut around the top of the stump (so it does not pop off easy), then while it is being rotated up out of the ground walk around and cut any root you see still attached or trying to lift out of the ground. This works much better if the stump is left about 4-6 feet high so you get some real leverage on it with the pull, but if already cut down short run chain or strap over the top of it and around a large root on the far side of the stump. I use a Sawzall with foot long coarse tooth wood cutting blade for this - goes through roots really fast, and blade is only $1 or so apiece so ruining one or two hitting rocks is no big thing, and also reaches in under the stump better and safer than an axe. I helped a neighbor take out a back yard full of birches this way - took us about half a day to remove about 15 trees with about 6 foot diameter circle of crown and roots, leaving holes about 1-2 feet deep where each tree was. Remember this - whichever way you use to take it out, you will need maybe 1-5 wheelbarrow loads of good growth medium to replace the divot. 

4) Cheaper route - cut off flush with ground level (or leave some stickup as a planter or stool or feeder base or whatever), and plant new tree at least 4 feet away from old crown, in a spot between the old roots.

'Reasonable' is one of those words that means wildly divergent things to different people.  Check with your local high school to see if they have  any sort of agricultural program.  If yes, perhaps someone in that program could help you.  Being a landscaper myself, I must say it sounds like you want something that is - first and foremost - cheap.   This is NOT the best way to look for any service.  You would be better served looking for 'competant' than with 'cheap'.  The nicer you want your flowerbed to look, the more important it is to find someone who REALLY knows what they are doing.

Hardscaping reviews in Wilmington


I gave
Wilmington Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
an idea of what I wanted and it was seamless from start to finish. He gave me a bid on the spot, started when he was supposed to, and just finished today on time. It is everything I wanted and more. He picked beautiful plants and trees that bloom at different parts of the year and built a beautiful stone patio with a wall-like railing that I can use for additional seating or just to set a cocktail on while enjoying a fire in the firepit. He also covered an existing cement patio with matching stone and re-did my front landscaping. He installed outdoor lighting and a dog run with crushed granite so my beautiful backyard can stay that way and the dogs can have their space, too. He was a delight to work with, always reachable if I needed him and his crew was really nice to have around for a few days. I will definitely be using him again and will recommend him to even my pickiest friends.

replaced much of our brick driveway and front steps in
Wilmington Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
2013. They did a very good job then and I wrote a review reflecting that. Today they came again to secure a few loose bricks in our front steps. All it took was an email to
Wilmington Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and he sent his guys to do the work without bothering us at all. We are most grateful that this company stands behind its warranty and does it in a prompt, professional way. So glad we had them do the work in the first place!

Eminent did an excellent job, from start to finish. Their representative,
Wilmington Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, was very professional and explained what the job would entail, and explained the different options and alternatives. The price they quoted was below what another company had, and we liked the highly positive reviews they had received in Angie's list, so we decided to go ahead. They started and finished the job on time--indeed, they finished a day earlier than we expected, in about 3 days. We were very happy with the results, and our patio looks wonderful. On a side note, there was some accidental damage done to our patio gate by one of the vehicles bringing in (or taking out) the construction materials, but Eminent responded quickly and in a professional manner and had our gate fixed. I would use them again in the future for other projects, and would highly recommend them.

I called multiple times to confirm schedule for work to be done and received no response. I had received quote for multiple projects totaling appoximatley $7000.00. I have not heard from him since, nor has my $150.00 been returned.

- Ralph S.

Very nice guy and professional. He was very articulate and he supplied exactly what I asked for. He seemed to be a little less experienced than others I looked in to, and his bid was a high. However, I appreciated the rendering he did. I didn't agree with his suggestion of bringing boulders in to add the slide.
- Gregory G.

It was not a so good an experience. We had a paver brick patio in front of our house and they submitted the permits with our city and apparently they never read the permits once they received them because a lot of the patios have restrictions in terms of what water drainage. They never read the permit and they finished the job and it failed inspection due to the fact that they didn't read the permit. We needed to have a 6 foot by a 6 foot long dug in our front our front yard built with rocks and gravel for a dry well which cost us an additional $3000 to get this hole and fill it with proper materials. That was an added cost that we did not expect and we had to do that in order to pass the inspection. The owner of the company was awful, yelling at me and my husband. They said that it was our fault and that we should have known which was on the permit. The patio is done and it looks beautiful and they did a beautiful job but it didn't pass the inspection until we got this huge hole that now is like a sink hole in our front yard and that is quite silly. The hole has to be filled every few months because of those and it is mushy and my kids can't play in the front yard as they might fall. It is covered but it is still a mess. Had we known and had we been aware of the drill we never would have put the patio there because I don't want the big mushy hole in my front yard. I understand that they do business all over the Chicago area so it is fair for them to know the rules in each city and it is their job. The work was beautiful if I could rate it separately.
- Victoria B.

The owner came on Saturday morning to give me an estimate. On Monday morning four workers arrived and worked for about 3 hours. They performed the task described above. They were polite and efficient.
- Donald J.

I waited for a month and a half for them to come and do my parking spot with their ecogrid surface. They never showed up. I phoned a couple of times and was told that they would come the next week but they never showed up. Finally at the end of September I told them not to bother.
