Scarborough Patio Pavers from people just like you.

was impressive when we first met and decided to let him to do our paver project. We were hit with our first concern was he wasn't using" a level and we had to tell him several times that there were areas that were completely uneven. After I used my level to show him he finally made adjustments. Since it's been finished we have found several other areas that settled and are even worse. Our second concern was with laying a curve to a walk way. After they left for the day, we noticed he had laid out the pavers so bad that the curve in the walk width was over 8 inches difference in places and there was no curve just right
, so my wife and I redid the curve that evening so they could continue the next day. Two nights after the project was finished, we had a rain shower and all of the mortar sand along with his so called sealer washed away. Then we noticed that when he did attempt to seal it there are areas where he sealed the sand right on top of the pavers and it looks terrible. Lastly after putting all of our patio furniture back we discovered that the 18 foot by 3 foot BBQ addition was only 30 inches wide instead of 36 as we originally requested and he bid. When we first met he was responding instantly to get the quote and job, now that we have problems he's disappeared from the face of the earth. I've sent him pictures of the issues and not one single reply. I was eager to give my business to a young man but we are shocked how bad and unprofessional his work was and I am very disappointed with
personally. Either he was in way over his head or once he gets the money he could care less. We now have to hire a professional to come fix everything he messed up. I would NOT recommend
to anyone wanting to do any kind of paver/block project at all.

"We worked with
a few years ago on a large project and were very pleased with our experience. When we decided to add an outdoor kitchen area," we know we wanted to work with
was great to work with. He designed an outdoor living space and kitchen for us and integrated it into our existing patio. It's just what we wanted and it's amazing to relax and entertain in. We added a large kidney shaped patio with an inlaid "P" for our family name. the large paver patio is contoured by a curved seating wall. The best part is the granite counter tops that match my indoor kitchen counter tops. I just love them. the lights around the patio and in the wall really make a big difference when we are entertaining. We also had a privacy fence installed. The whole experience was great, again. We are very happy with everything. We have worked with many contractors on various projects and
was by far the best experience we have had with a contractor.

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.

Textured pavers are not smooth, but have a textured look that can prevent people from slipping while walking across them, says Wood. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member George L. of San Francisco)

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 Scarborough


Everything was fine until i contacted them this spring to let them know that many of their plantings had died. They have a one year guarantee in the contract. When they showed up to plant the replacements they did not have enough plants, the wrong bushes and they planted them in the wrong places. Contacting them since has been futile. I still have eight dead bushes in front of our house making it look terrible. I previously had given them a great recommendation. Withdrawn! They refuse to contact me and probably think i will just go away. Well i won't.
- Michael B.

Did a great job.

and his crew members are polite. He has also done some year repair (sod) and bed edging for us. We have him come once a month for yard maintenance. Very happy with his service.
- Andrew M.

Never called back, never sent the estimate. I've been waiting nearly two weeks, have called his office and his cell phone multiple times and have received no answer. Very poor customer service.

was open to ideas and was flexible enough to change to insure we got what we had envisioned. Before making changes he always consulted with us and made sure we were on the same page. We were amazed at how quickly things started and that they were done within 4 days! That is a testament to his crew who worked tirelessly to get the job done. No corners were cut during this project and I was there every step of the way watching so I know they did this job to the book. I would highly recommend Unity to anyone looking for this type of project or anything related to landscape or hardscape. You might think after reading this review that I'm a cousin of his but this is the first time

and crew! Great job!
- Gerald O.

He was timely with the original look at the scope of work as I did not have any urgent time schedule. He completed both projects in a timely and professional manner

Sent us the best crew we could have imagined or hoped for
They had at least two supervisors continuously checking progress and quality of the crews performance.
The crew was experienced in craftsmanship and even adding features we had not planned only to enhance the design and
overall project
The owners assisted us with finding another subcontractor to complete an additional project of replacing boards on the home and did not charge us a fee. The craftsman they sent was very reasonable, accountable and responsible and showed up when he said he would.
We would contract with

again when we have additional projects and refer them to neighbors and friends.
They may be slightly more expensive but they deliver above and beyond and do what they say they are going to do.

Absolutely fantastic. Very quick response, very quick repair with an excellent result. I wish all our service providers performed like this company!

Nick and his team did a terrific job. They worked tirelessly in extremely hot weather and the results were fantastic. The price was very reasonable and the team was polite and professional. I would definitely recommend
