Tacoma Patio Pavers from people just like you.

"We are grateful that
and his crew were available to work on our project. We received a number of estimates and ideas regarding how to create" a walkway that would function well in all weather, and
's solution to our drainage issues was both
and elegant. His price was competitive. He installed two
stone walkways for us that are both functional and beautiful.
is a great guy, he does what he says he will do, his prices are very reasonable and his work is truly beautiful. He was willing to work with our aesthetic, even though it meant adjusting the size of the stones he put into the walkways. His crew is professional and super nice. Cannot say enough good things....so glad we found him.

-Susan R.

"Went well. Only complaint was that he forgot to trim one of the large
plants and the cobbles on the side yard are not 2 inches deep as he indicated.

-Fred P.

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 Tacoma


We started researching our landscaping project about six
months before our actual installation because I wanted to have a lot of time to
think through our ideas and get several bids to make the best decision for our
needs. I read through a lot of the reviews on Angie’s List and I was impressed
with what
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
’s customers all had to say about their projects.
After meeting with
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, I met with
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, the landscape architect, and
she incorporated our ideas and goals into a plan with multiple options.
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked

was great to work with as she was extremely professional and knowledgeable but
also very patient and helpful with our ideas. I liked that she gave us several options for
the trees and plants (all within our needs for sunlight and deer resistance)
because I later went through the various suggestions and picked what I was most
interested in having for our backyard. With
the design for our backyard in hand, I was able to solicit bids and decide who
I would pursue for our installation. We chose
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
because the
price was competitive and I really felt confident that the installation
would be done correctly and that if there were any issues or questions, that
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
would be someone with whom I would be comfortable working. That was
absolutely the case. Prior to the
project I had a lot of questions and we modified our plan a couple of times.
Each time I reached out to
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
with questions he was responsive and professional
and when I had questions over the course of the project, he was attentive to
the issue at hand and it was obvious to me that his first goal was to do
quality work which we would be happy with.
Working with the foreman, we made a few minor changes during the
installation and
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was accommodating at adjusting to our needs but
also gave us good advice on some of our landscaping decisions which I still
appreciate because they saved us some money and really added to the look of our
The foreman on our project was Nick and he was extremely
skilled and talented in not only the installation but in seeing potential areas
where we could make slight modifications to the plan to either make the design
even more attractive or to ensure that the run off would drain correctly and
not upset the plants or patio. The proof of his expertise was evident right
from the start when we had several heavy rains during the installation and the
gravel foundation and later the landscaping and mulch stayed completely in
place with no puddles or mud ever on the patio. It really impressed us as did
the precision of the cuttings on the pavers and steps. Nick and his team were
also professional and easy to work with and to have at our home.
Our patio and landscaping were installed about two months
ago and there isn’t a day that goes by that we
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
’t enjoy them and appreciate
the beauty and the transformation to our yard. We would absolutely use Outdoor
Design Build again and we really appreciate their work at our home.

is awesome. He's very creative on a project and the more freedom you give him the better things are. He's very busy so at times his time to returning a call is not great. He isn't the cheapest out there in terms of pricing but he makes up for it with his work ethic and his attention to details.
- Joshua R.

Arrived for our appointment promptly and made some great suggestions. Indicated we would receive a bid in the next few days.
Because we liked him and his ideas, we were eager to see if his bid was competitive with the other two we received. Texted him once and received a response that we would see something that weekend. Nothing. Texted him AGAIN, the weekend of our decision to provide yet another opportunity - no response. This company wasted our time. Unfortunate experience.

We couldn't be more pleased with the work they did. It was quite complicated as it entailed extending the existing upper deck, leveling the lower level, placing new stone flooring, building up stone walls for additional seating, installing a neat water feature, landscaping, designing and building a built-in grill, and finishing it with a cedar
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. It was a bit pricey but well worth it!
- Lori F.

Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was very helpful when we needed to replace our cracked river rock and
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
deck surrounding our pool. She recommended the paver style which is very comfortable to walk on barefoot and suggested installing a 3" drain to replace the old 1" drain to correct a drainage problem. We requested adding 3 foot door pads, and she had no problem with having the screen doors adjusted to fit. The pavers arrived on schedule, and the crew arrived on time the next day as scheduled. On day one the old river rock and
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
deck was jackhammered and hauled away. On day two the tile coping was removed, the deck leveled with sand and pitched for drainage, and the paver installation started. On day three the remaining pavers, new coping and door pads installed. Screen doors were adjusted to fit and entire area washed and sanded. Debris was removed. The only issue we had was with the white haze which developed on the coping pavers. I contacted Flagstone, the manufacturer, and they advised brushing the pavers with a mixture of muriatic acid and water (I used 8 cups water to 1 cup acid). The white haze is called efflorescence and is common in new pavers. After the second application, the haze is mostly gone. We are very happy with the new deck and the work done by

. It looks great, and we no longer have a drainage problem. The project was done in only three days. We highly recommend

and his crew are rock stars - literally. I had a small and awkward patio space.
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, the ultimate designer, came up with a brilliant plan and fully sketched design with no charge. Whereas others charged a fee just to visit, these guys
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
up the plan and made changes I wanted without any cost. Once the work began, I continued to make additions and changes. Most of the changes were without extra charges. They took out atleast five big rocks, hammering it away using hand tools, as machine couldn't be brought in (due to lack of access). Above all, they took great pride in work, and
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
's crew was a joy to work with. I couldn't be more pleased with the result. I highly recommend these guys. Their prices are fair and they are always willing to go the extra mile. Finally, they stand behind their work and will warrant their work for a long time (think 10+ years).
- Dipankar B.

It was a job done by what I consider to be a true professional; that is, he removed only one paver and carefully so as not to damage it, then when no reason for its lifting could be found below it, he then replaced it, cleaned up, and left. I was happy as a clam.
When Avi came to my house to see the problem and give me an estimate, although his minimum charge is $1,000, he estimated the initial work to be only $500, which was a blessing for me, since I would have paid $1,000 and more to prevent a tree root from damaging my entire front porch and foundation, so his approach was realistic, is a good word for it, in that he does enough good work that he can choose who to work for, and his assessment of my problem and me, as a customer, was exactly correct, and that's what I mean by 'realistic'. He found no need to sell me on all the gruesome possiblities, and made it clear from the start, that until he saw what was beneath the shifting paver, it was all conjecture, and true enough!!
I deal with vendors constantly in my line of work, so to find such an excellent service provider on Angie's List was one of those things in a person's life that does turns out to be exactly as promised, and I find that's rare in our world. I would recommend Avi and his company to anyone who needs an honest assessment of their problem, well-qualified personel, and a fair price, and it just doesn't get any better than that.

The morning of the scheduled appointment his 2 workers showed up, they had no idea of what was to be done. They did not speak english at all and could not communicate with us. We did not feel it was our job to show them what to do that is the owners responsibility. We sent the workers away as we did not feel comfortable supervising them. The owner showed up very late and said that since they did not start early they would have to postpone the job!!!! This was on a Saturday and I asked that they start on Monday morning, the owner
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
said he had other jobs scheduled and I would have to wait until later in the week. I would never use this company again, they don't show up on time, the workers don't speak english and every promise
Tacoma Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
made he broke. Complete waste of time.
