Portsmouth Patio Pavers from people just like you.

"First of all, we were very pleased that
and his crew were willing to take on this project. They were prompt and were here when they said" they would be here.
returned calls promptly and was very reliable. The crew did everything that we requested and they did excellent work. We are amazed with their artistry, attention to detail, and problem solving. The project was over 1500 square feet of hardscaping. It included pavers, walls, ramps, steps, a drainage system, polymeric sand and sealing. This team worked six days a week in the heat and rain, and they left the yard as tidy as possible each day. They take great pride in their work and now, so do we!

-Lisa L.

"paver steps are as good as new, Pat had to pull 3 of them up and re-do the base and then re-level. Steps weigh about 500 lbs each. Cement slab taken out was sinking," they poured a new slab and brought it up to code with a slight ramping up to the front porch slab. Difficult job, excellent result!!

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)

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 Portsmouth


Awesome experience! Will definitely use them again and will recommend to my friends.
I contacted Mr.
Portsmouth Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and other brick paver companies through Angie's List. He responded right away for an appointment to review work area, take measurements and discuss possibilities. Within 5 days, we had a detailed proposal and concept images of what the finished product would like. Scheduling the work was a breeze and was able to start earlier because of having to change the schedule on another job. The project took about 5 days and it follow his proposed scope of work to the letter. His crew cleaned up the area including the driveway after project completed.
We are very pleased with their professionalism, punctuality, and great quality of work. Thank you!
- Roberto M.

Portsmouth Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was exceptionally professional in the entire process. He made and appointment to come see our home and gardens. He was on time, very courteous, and gave a clear, concise, bid for the work, including all costs. He then made an appointment to perform the work. He arrived on schedule, with all promised materials, and he and his crew worked carefully, and efficiently, completing the work in a very timely manner.
We were absolutely pleased with everything they did (including protecting a duck nest which later hatched twelve ducklings in our garden). The gardens went from an eye-sore to beautiful.
We definitely intend to have

back for all of our landscaping needs!

Seems like a nice guy when he does your estimate. He's mild mannered; you want to like him. don't. He is a con artist. We signed contract for him to do work for a total of $3,490. He accepted the deposit, a check for $1,745 dollars from us made out to his name,
Portsmouth Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. He cashed that check. our bank confirms that. About a week before he was suppose to start work, he stopped responding to all of our attempts to contact him. We have attempted to contact him approximately 30 times. It is now been 2 weeks since the job supposed to be done and we have not heard from him. He simply took our money and walked away. He has stolen our money by fraud.
Portsmouth Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
does not exist. He has only reserved the name with the Arizona Corporation Commission you can call them and verify this for yourself. I have also called the Arizona Registrar of contractors, and he is not a licensed contractor. He is guilty of a misdemeanor because he is contracting without a license. The types of things that he does, or at least advertises to do, such as irrigation, require a contractors license.
- Susan M.

This was a horrible experience. We had an estimate made in late April with a follow-up visit to a week later with pavers to chose from. Everything was set go, we had a signed invoice and contreact and put down a $2,000 deposit. The day the work team was supposed to come, the office contacted us and said the guy who was supposed to come out left the company. The owner,
Portsmouth Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
Ranchor, was non-responsive for over two weeks. After a series of back and forth messages with the office manager, the owner finally returned the call and told us that there was really no way that the job would be done and that we should go find someone else to do the job. They violated many of the terms and conditions of their contract. They were highly unprofessional in handling this matter. don't use this company.

and his team were excellent! From start to finish, I could tell these guys were professional and honest. They arrived on time and did a wonderful job installing the pavers and fire pit. They cleaned up completely, and made sure I was completely satisfied.

!Our experience with
Portsmouth Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was consistently pleasant and professional, from our preliminary contact through the completion of our project. All phases of the project were completed on or ahead of the time estimates From designing our new patio to selecting borders, edges, and the patio stone itself to excavation to installing the base and finally, laying the patio deck we were extremely pleased with our work with this company. This is a family owned and operated business which was clearly evident in the pride they took in their work. We are certain we received excellent value for our money.

Well, where do I begin. Overall, we're very disappointed with the experience and will likely never use an Angie's List recommended provider again. Your money is instantly taken and you never know when your services will be provided. First, "
Portsmouth Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
", the alleged owner, will not call you. He only sends text messages like a teenage girl. I understand we had unusually heavy amounts of rain this spring but it should not have taken TWO MONTHS to pour a small pad. He simply took on too many jobs and does not have the resources to provide prompt service in my estimation. When work finally did commence sub contractors, not
Portsmouth Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
employees, showed up at my house unannounced and began tearing up my back yard a week before any concrete was poured! Their forms were poorly constructed and they used no sand underneath the pad! Also, they didn't properly prop up the rebar as is standard, they just reached down into the wet concrete and pulled it upward by hand, hoping it would magically remain in the middle of the pour and not sink to the bottom! The "broom finish" is very rough and unattractive and the edges are, in many places, sharp, brittle, an uneven. I had to contact
Portsmouth Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
afterward to clean up all the excess mess left behind after the forms were removed. It's simply a cheap, low quality job. I guess you get what you pay for, months after paying, if $1800 can be considered "cheap". During all the delays
Portsmouth Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
mentioned doing some sort of coloring of the concrete, but of course that never happened. We're very disappointed in both the company, and Angie's list.

We moved to the
Portsmouth Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
Beach area one year ago with the intention of purchasing a home close to the beach and in an area that would allow us to install a pool. We knew the summers were hot and we wanted to stay cool when we weren't swimming at the beach. We did an extensive amount on homework on pool construction, especially having to make the difficult choice of concrete vs fiberglass. We did ultimately choose concrete (even though the cost was higher) and have not regretted that decision. First let me say, we dealt directly with the company President, Bill
Portsmouth Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. He has 20+ years experience and provided us with so much information. And no pressure! He encouraged us to go out and talk to his competitors and neighbors who have fiberglass pools so we would make the right decision for us. He also suggested we checkout the Better Business Bureau website. After weeks of investigating and hearing about problems with fiberglass pools (loose titles, cracks, job not completed on time), we knew concrete with the way to go. No regrets! Bill and his team (a family owned business) took care of all the details of dealing with the county and permits. Some companies make the homeowner do that. Beware of those guys! Our neighbors are very complimentary of our outdoor pool and landscaping design. It is a beautiful oasis which know we will enjoy for many years to come. Please consider at least talking with Bill if you are in the
Portsmouth Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
for a pool, you will be so glad you did.
