We'd been experiencing a plethora of problems with our paved patio and had a few estimates to replace the pavers with blue stone. We received an estimate from a nursery that had done some work for us before that was so angering and outrageous that we refused to even look at the plan. I could have built an addition for what he proposed. He wanted to pour concrete over rebar and set the blue stone on top. Total overkill. And it's not what I wanted. I wanted sand and finer crusher run with the blue stone placed on top. Just before we were to begin the project ourselves (yes, ever-testing the bonds of our marriage!), Jen, who works with us, suggested a friend of hers, Jeff Gaeta of Gaeta Scapes (get it?). His estimate was more than fair and we engaged him.
