It really only took them about two full days if you add up the time that was split up by the weather. Not bad at all. A job done well that is also done quickly and ahead of schedule makes it more worth the money if you ask me.
The patio, sidewalk and landscaping turned out very nice. We're very happy with it.
Teresa didn't want them to put a lot of plants and whatnot in the beds as she likes planting flowers/plants/etc, and will be adding to the beds this summer.
Now, finally...visitors have a walkway from the driveway to the front porch and door. Imagine the pure suck that it was to get to the front door from the driveway if it had been pouring down rain...you see, it wasn't just grass, it was disturbed earth from construction that didnt have the thickest grass in place yet..and it wasn't packed down like undisturbed earth...it was softer and kind of muddy to walk through when it was wet.
Anyway, Tim Killion and his crew with Killion Landscaping in Edwardsville did a great job. They were great to work with and their price was reasonable.
Here's the "before" picture...
