Why do you dig up so much ground for my patio?

Posted by Robert Bahler on Fri, Mar 21, 2014 @ 09:18 AM

There are many reasons that paver contractors, like us here at Bahler Brothers, dig up so much ground for our customer’s patios. The biggest reason is that in order for a paver patio to last, it must have a good base. The base must be free of biodegradable matter such as roots and other fill matter.

Complete Yard Transformation: Paver patio and walkway

Posted by Amanda Bahler on Mon, Aug 06, 2012 @ 12:50 PM

"The professionalism and thoroughness with which our job was done was most impressive beginning with the sales/marketing and design team to the workers on site."

The first time this customer came into our design center for an appointment we knew we were going to have a blast. We clicked right away and the process began. They wanted to redo not only their front yard but their back yard too. Through many many questions from an engineer to lauging at his many jokes, the design came together beautifully! After many appointments and picking out the perfect pavers, the plans were set and ready to go!

Of course we thought that was a great idea and we started designing and planning right away. When the plans were complete, we had a raised patio using Techo-Bloc's Blu 60. Multiple sets of Rosetta steps leading to the pool, a waterfall, and low voltage landscape lighting.

Posted by Amanda Bahler on Fri, Apr 27, 2012 @ 10:33 AM

This paver patio installation was simple but brought much more character to the customer's front porch area. They use their front porch a lot, but it wasn't big enough. They also wanted to  include an area "just for mom", have steps stepping down the hill leading to the pool area, and have a small path through the herb garden to access the hose faucet. Some landscape lighting was also added. Here is what we came up with, resulting in a very satisfied customer!
