"We called Blakeborough Hardscapes when the front entrance to our home needed a makeover.  We love our new entry that includes a patio area to enjoy morning coffee or an evening bonfire. From the professional service to the excellent craftsmanship our entire experience was great! We will call Blakeborough Hardscapes when it’s time to do our next project."

"Joe Blakeborough and his team transformed my overgrown, untended section of a garden into a stunning patio area with a fire ring. I believe he has the creative vision and the talent necessary for any type of hardscape project He is thorough and precise with each aspect, from the initial meeting to the follow-up. He turned a frustrating, high-maintenance area into an oasis of calm and joyful relaxation!"

“From the very beginning to the end of our project we enjoyed planning and working with Joe and his crew.  We appreciated the suggestions and flexibility as the project progressed.  He uses top quality materials and pays close attention to detail, so you end up with a beautiful looking finished project.  The suggestion of a circle in the middle of our patio attracts attention and defines the space.  Our backyard is much more useable and visibly attractive.  Our dream came true thanks to Blakeborough Hardscapes.”

"We highly recommend Blakeborough Hardscapes!  We found Joe a pleasure to work with and his estimate more than reasonable and fair.  Our landscaping needs, ideas and budget were very carefully listened to.  His team was polite, dependable and hard working, and under Joe’s leadership completed the work within the time agreed upon. They always went the extra mile including sweeping or hosing off sidewalks at the end of each workday!"

"The Blakeborough Hardscapes crew did an amazing job with our paver/fire pit area.  From the design of the project to the construction, the crew always showed great care and attention to detail. Throughout the process, the crew was always very professional and courteous and the area was always kept cleaned up as well.  We are very pleased with the end result and would definitely recommend Joe and his team for any of your yard beautifying needs!"

"I am extremely pleased with the project Blakeborough Hardscapes completed at my house.  Joe really listened to what I wanted, he made great suggestions as to what would work best, and he and his team took the time to do the work the right way.  Even after the brutal winter we just had, my paver walkways and retaining walls look as great as when they were installed.  The project turned out even better than I hoped, I get compliments all the time!"

"I hired Blakeborough Hardscapes to tear out and install my new driveway after hiring them to create a firepit in the yard in a prior year.  I was very impressed with the skill Joe Blakeborough showed during the entire project.  He is very conscientious and treated my yard like I would.  He even raked and fluffed up the grass after driving on it.

Knowing how Joe runs his business, I didn’t hesitate to hire him to create a beautiful driveway for me when my crumbling driveway had worn out its welcome.  Joe and his crew showed up when they said they would and worked hard to complete the job in the amount of time estimated.  It is obvious Joe has trained his crew of young men to respect the property of his clients and to treat them respectfully, while still having fun on the job.  I couldn’t be more pleased with how the driveway looks and have been happy to recommend Blakeborough Hardscapes to anyone I know who is looking to do any landscaping project."

"Joe and his team did a great job on our patio.  They were willing to be flexible with the project and make modifications and improvements to the design as the project came together.  The job was completed on time and at a competitive price.  In addition, the team took special care to protect your lawn which was in very nice shape at the start of the project.   The guys at Blakeborough layed down a plywood path to save the grass. I was concerned about the equipment tearing it up beyond repair but with a little water and about 2 weeks time, everything came back beautifully."

"We had water seeping into a portion of our basement last spring and in the past when it’s been rainy and wet.  Joe re-graded the area and it’s been dry in that area ever since – even during this recent bout of heavy rain.
We also had Joe tear up our existing front deck and landscape.  He and his crew installed a new blue stone patio, steps and porch area from existing bricks, a chilton walkway, dry creek bed and entirely new landscape.
Joe was always punctual, pleasant and thoughtful.  He and his crew were very respectful and professional and made certain that the area was clean and they left no debris or mess.  In addition, Joe had to do some subcontracting (HVAC work, concrete, carpentry, and landscape design) on the project.  He made certain he got accurate bids and stayed on top of the entire project.
We are very pleased with the work Joe, his crew, and subcontractors did.  He was fair, and I would highly recommend Joe and Blakebourough Hardscapes."

"From the inception of our vision of a backyard patio/fire pit that incorporated a waterfall, Joe and his team worked diligently to make that vision a reality. His expert advice, professional attitude and attention to detail throughout the project produced a patio area that we have enjoyed immensely!"

"We were very happy with our retaining wall that Blakeborough Hardscapes installed. Joe and his crew were very friendly and accommodating. Joe coached us through the process on our new retaining wall and had good suggestions when it came to layout, retaining wall material, and feasibility. Joe and his crew are also punctual and forthright with scheduling and completing work. We were so happy with Joe’s work that we are hiring his company back to do a second project."
