Custom Quote for

Pat Hayenga


Pat,

Thank you for allowing us to design your new landscaping in your backyard! We're excited to be able to help this become a
reality for you! I've separated the costs for the different features so you could see what they cost and hopefully help you decide
what you want to accomplish in the first phase.

I know you were hoping to get much of this done for under $8,000 but the size of the patio on the design was a big chunk of that
budget. There are a few options we could use to bring the cost down which would include shrinking the patio or eliminating
some curves. The water feature also was a big portion of the budget and could also be reduced in size. I priced it based off of a
fairly long waterfall run, but we could easily simplify that to save on cost.

I didn't price the patio door with a doggie door as I would still need to have the subcontractor look at it. One thought I had to
save cost would be to keep your existing patio door and simply add a different doggie door access. Because the siding needs to
be replaced where the porch was that would be a good time to open up the wall and add a small door.

Look through the quotes and let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks,

Jason Hemmer - Operations Manager/Sales

We realize the investment you’re about to make in your property is very important to you, so here
are the two things we know you’ll want to look at first.

#1: Our Pledge to You

A lot of companies will promise you pretty much anything. We could too. Or we could let our work
speak for us.

Now, it’s obviously impossible to prove anything on paper, but instead of spending a long time telling you
what to think about us, here’s what sets us apart:

»» We tell you what you don’t need to spend your money on, because that’s being honest.
»» We train our employees to do every part of their job right. Even the small jobs.
»» We do good work. Period.
»» We work hard—really hard.
»» We will keep our shirts on while we work. It’s for the best.
»» We clean up at the end of every day.
»» We will visit you annually to see how everything is holding up.
»» We guarantee our work for the lifetime of our business.
We want to be real and we want to be honest. It isn’t about simply running another business; it’s about
defining what a business should be. It’s about integrity.

#2: The Cost of Your Project
To do everything we talked about with you the cost would be: $ 13,901.15
All the other details of what this price includes, like the materials we’ll use, the work we’ll do, and all that
other good stuff is on the actual estimate page. Check it out.

What can go wrong with
a

simple paver job?

Weeds are appearing Pavers are settling
? Paver drift makes joints vulnerable ? Lack of wall reinforcement to
? Improper jointing sand
support weight of patio
Wall is separating and leaning ? Lack of drainage
? Poor base construction or material ? Improper base material
? Insufficient compaction
? Excavation not deep enough for subsoil type
? Lack of drainage


Edges of walk are failing and pavers drifting apart
? Edge restraint absent or not secured properly
? Base wasn’t extended beyond edge of pavers

Small cut pieces
? Lack of attention to sidewalk layout
? Small pieces vulnerable to cracking


THIS CAN BE AVOIDED!

The long term performance of a paver
project depends on the high quality
workmanship below the surface.

PAVER CONSTRUCTION 101

1. Excavation

The first step in any paver construction project is EXCAVATION. The depth of
excavation will depend on two factors:

? The type of soil in your area – Clay soil will require a deeper
excavation; sandy soil will require less.

? How your paver surface will be used – Heavy loads like driveways and
retaining walls require deeper excavation, patios and sidewalks require
less.

2. Filter

Once the excavation is finished it is critical to separate the subsoil from the base
material.

? The filter fabric should be strong enough to not tear under load.
? Should be non-woven to allow for drainage.


PAVER CONSTRUCTION 101 (cont.)

3. Base

After the filter fabric is installed the next step is to install a suitable rock base,
preferably a well-draining angular rock
¾” – 1” in size.

? The depth of the base is determined by the type of load the project is
designed to handle.

? Base should be extended at least 6 inches beyond the edge of the paver
surface.

? Base material should be compacted in layers, using the proper
equipment.

4. Bedding Material

The next step is to install a small chip stone. The stone should be 1/4” to 3/8” in size
with no fine particles to allow for drainage. The small size also provides a smooth even
surface on which to lay the pavers.


PAVER CONSTRUCTION 101 (cont.)

5. Pavers

Now the fun part - installing the pavers.
? The pavers used should be from a high quality manufacturer with strict control
on tolerance, raw material, and psi ratings.
? Pavers should be installed with attention to layout, pattern, clean lines, smooth
cuts and even joints.

6. Finishing Touches

To finish the project, edge restraint and jointing sand are installed.
? Edge restraint should be spiked into the base using 12” steel spikes.
? Polymeric jointing sand is swept into and compacted in the joints to lock the
pavers together and to keep weeds and debris out of the joints.

How to choose a
GREAT contractor

Knowledgeable – A quality contractor should know their craft inside and

out and be able to give you all the information you need to make well-educated decisions.

Current – A quality contractor should work at keeping their company up to date on best practices,

new products, regulations, insurance requirements, safety procedures, and proper equipment.

Skilled – A quality contractor should be able to show you past work demonstrating their

capabilities, attention to every detail and mastery of the trade.

Honest – A quality contractor should explain the details of a project clearly –

especially the more unpleasant topics of cost, construction mess and realistic
time frame to complete the job.

REMEMBER

When it comes to hiring a contractor, the lowest price is rarely the
best choice. When comparing one contractor’s estimate to another,

make sure you are comparing apples to apples in terms of
installation methods, materials and the level of service provided.
