We had the front garden taken out and redone basically. Tarmacadam was used for the main area. Kerbing stone and coloured stone was laid at the borders. A new granite front door step was built and the old gate pillars were removed and replaced with new pillars.
I'd been looking for the right paver for ages. Then one day, heading our to Dundrum for coffee, I saw Michael's sign outside a house. So I went up to the front door and I asked if he was good, and they gave him a very good recommendation. We talked to a few different people but I ended up deciding on Michael. We chose Michael really based on the recommendations we got from people we called. Plus his price. Plus, very importantly, Michael always returned our calls.
Yes, I did - I'm a graphic designer and I knew what I wanted. It wasn't the usual run-of-the-mill design and Michael was a bit reluctant about what I wanted initially, but he did it, and in the end he said he liked it! So, I'd recommend him for that too - he did listen to us.
Yes, he did in fairness. he brought books of photographs of previous jobs he did and brought samples as well. He was good to work with really.
Michael arrived on the dot on the day he said would. They cleaned up very well after themselves. All the lads that worked with him were very good, and very nice. I was happy with the workmanship too.
I have to say Michael went out of his way on the job. We were very specific about the stone we wanted, and he went to a lot of trouble to source it. Michael was straight up and honest. And his crew were great as well, they were good guys.
