Brick Paving: All brick pavers are installed as per
manufacturer's specifications as well as in ordinance
with state & local building codes. Here's an

our standard installation specifications.
The day your project's excavation begins, John spray

of the project for your final approval.
Plywood sheets are placed over existing lawn, as needed,

screenings(fines) are used in
place of bedding & jointing
