Chattanooga Patio Pavers from people just like you.

is a professional organization from the proposal stage to completion of the landscape/hardscaping project. I had a clear understanding of" the work performed and their quality is second to none and greatly appreciate their attention to details.

-Tim S.

"Overall his bid was not the lowest, but was competitive considering he would replace the concrete.
was knowledgeable and easy to work with." I felt confident giving him the job. My insticts proved to be correct. His crew was excellent and did an outstanding job. They were meticulous and very competent replacing all pavers old and new precisely in place. They improved the entrance by making it a two step entrance opposed to just one step. I know this firsthand because I am retired, fussy and watched them perform.
is creative, reliable and a man of his word who monitors the progress of his workers.

Some of the most common small hardscape projects include patio stones, sidewalks and retaining walls.


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.

Pavers are low maintenance. Keep your paver walkway or patio clean with regular sweeping and some soap and water. Use a sealer to keep pavers looking like new.

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.

Crew was prompt each day. Owner introduced me to them. Job was well done timely and professional. Clean up was excellent too.

Excellent. The original work in 2008 was perfection. He identified and assesses the concerns in a timely fashion and sets to task. The final product and workmanship is unparalleled. Our hardscape covers the area under the

In response to a doorknob solicitation and follow-up, I signed a contract with
Chattanooga Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
& General Contracting Inc. on 10/15/2014 for a front yard fence and back yard water feature. The price was $11,990. I paid the deposit of $5,995. I was left with the contract and two drawing and specifications sheets. The work was to begin 11/17/14, completed 12/17/14. The work did not begin on date stated. I got a call that they would schedule it soon. I said I was going away Thanksgiving week and I wanted to be around during construction, and I preferred early December. They did not call back with a start date. I called

, the design consultant who wrote up the contract, to request an Addendum: (1) a second gate, on the south side, (2) a two-hinge gate style at the main entrance, on the east side. I said I wanted a final drawing (blueprint) with materials detail.

did not get back to me with price and specifications on the Addendum. He did not provide me a blueprint or materials detail of the job as a whole. No one did. The unresponsiveness, delays, excuses and casual attitude caused me to

faith in the Company's ability to perform. I was the one calling them; they never contacted me to indicate they were doing anything at all to further the project. References were made to certain people - a project manager, a bookkeeper - but they would be gone for the day or trying to work on things. I was not given the courtesy of knowing who these people were. On December 8, I notified
Chattanooga Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
in writing that I wanted to cancel the project and I requested refund of half my deposit. Again no response until a call four days later (Fri

12) from a man who said (1) would I stick with the project if they got the details to me by Monday? and (2) he'd like me to stick with the project because he wanted to build the water feature. My impression was he headed up a work crew or was himself the crew. No, I want the refund I said. In the five weeks since I have received nothing. No refund, no apologies. By calling repeatedly I got three hollow assurances: (1) that the deposit refund check was in the mail (it did not come), (2) that a replacement check was in the mail (it did not come), (3) that the check would be personally delivered if I did not get it (it was not delivered). On 12/31/14 I drove to the place of business before closing time, and through the window I saw an upscale business. The door was locked and I saw no one. On 1/8/15, I contacted an attorney to recover my money.

Despite a few delays for scheduling and rain,
Chattanooga Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
finished the work quickly and expertly. He was very easy to work with, helped us out by grading some of the surrounding land and helping us get rid of a piece of broken patio. He went beyond what we initially contracted for to give us a really nice looking wall.
- Gina J.

From the start
Chattanooga Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was always extremely responsive. If I texted him with any questions or concerns from the estimate phase, construction and even after completion he always responded almost immediately. During the gathering estimate phase I decided that we wanted to do something different than what we originally talked about,
Chattanooga Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
came out the very next day and
Chattanooga Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
an outline to make sure we were on the same page.
The construction took 2.5 days and they were extremely courteous and always cleaned up the job site after each day. Afterwards, there were a couple issues - two stones had been turned upside down, the step down was slanted and we didn't like the way it looked and the workers had mistakenly filled in our drainage ditch with top soil. We called
Chattanooga Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
that night and he came out the very next day, fixed the stone and the mud and came out later to fix the step once he had the materials.
The one thing that bothers me is that the side closest to our deck is slanted quite a bit, enough for the naked eye to see. I called to complain, and he patiently explained that it was a drainage issue and he would be more than willing to come out and fix even though it was a huge task. The result would be though that the patio would pool with water more when it rains. He even said that we could completely switch the way the patio slants if that is what would make me happy, and he could come out tomorrow to take elevations with me.
All in all - you can't go wrong with
Chattanooga Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. He will make sure that at the end of the day you get what you want and are happy with your project.

- Lisa A.

Went according to plan. Ran out of pavers one day but they quick got more. They were done one day ahead of time. They knew what they were doing as I continuously was checking with my son and the work in progress and he would ask questions to ensure they were using the correct materials and correct installation methods. He could find no fault with how they did the install.

at Apex was great. He came out and measured the project, compiled our wish list and gave us the estimate. The materials were ordered and arrived early not late. The workers were prompt, efficient and very skilled. Demo was started on January 5, 2015 and finishing touches were completed on January 21, 2015. There were NO ISSUES at all.

had the job running like a well tuned machine We are very happy with our new Patio and the pool looks brand new.
- Ray E.

The patio wasn't installed correctly--water would not drain properly. Material installed between pavers turned black and didn't adhere to the pavers. Landscaping beds weren't leveled correctly--plants sat in water and eventually died.
