We met Rick Bealer, owner of B&T Landscape & Patio Design at the 2009 Oaks Home & Garden show. After our initial discussion, we were exceedingly impressed with his depth of knowledge and his easy going customer oriented style. There was a sincere sharing of design thoughts. His innovative custom approaches and careful efforts resulted in an exceptional creation exceeding our goals. Rick is a creative knowledgeable craftsman who we highly recommend. We enjoyed our interactions so much we were actually sorry to see Rick and his team leave.
We moved into our house almost 40 years ago and had water issues in our backyard from the start. We put in a pool about 10 years later and decided to use bricks for the pool decking. Despite our best efforts, the bricks settled and shifted over the years; even after numerous attempts trying to fix them. We then hired B&T Landscaping to come in and re-do the entire area. That was 16 years ago! Not once has a brick settled or shifted. I was impressed by their knowledge, professionalism, and hard working crew. I have had them come back on two different occasions to do our walkway, patio, and most recently to apply stone to the front of our house and stoop. Without a doubt, a very top notch company.
Rick and his team listened to exactly what we wanted in terms of design and they added their own creative touch along the way to far exceed our expectations. In addition to design, even 12 years after Rick and his team installed the patio and walkway it looks as great today as it did when they finished the job. And, the patio and walkway has been very easy to maintain through the years. I highly recommend Rick and his team. Their work has been outstanding for all three of the areas that were important to us.
About 8 years ago B&T designed and installed a patio, with a retaining wall and fire pit, on the back of our house, and we were so pleased with the quality of the design, and durability of the work, that when it came time to replace an old patio on the side of the house, they were our first and last call. Rick instantly put his creativity to work when he came up with a design that incorporated our existing patio in the rear of the house, and tied it in seamlessly with a brand new side entrance and walkway that included new a EP Henry walkway, new drainage system away from the house inclusive of a new drain underneath some newly installed creek bed stones, along with new flower beds to soften the transition from patio, to the new entrance way. The design was AMAZING and demonstrated Rick's expertise in every facet of his business. My wife and I were absolutely thrilled with the finished product, and would give B&T Landscaping the HIGHEST recommendation.
We were thoroughly pleased with the work performed at our home by B&T Landscape & Patio Design. From design through execution, Rick and his crew were knowledgeable, hardworking and easy to deal with. We had very specific thoughts about how we wanted our patio to look, and B&T was able to translate our ideas into reality, achieving the beauty and functionality that we had in mind. We intend to use B&T in the future, and would highly recommend them to anyone in need of landscaping & design services.
We have lived in this 107 year old house for 46 years. Over time, we have made many changes and improvements. Eighteen or so years ago we replaced our walkways and steps with EP Henry, using B&T Landscape and Patio Design. Several years later, we again called on B&T to replace the original concrete coping, as well extend the decking to accommodate additional space for entertaining. 2 years ago we replaced the macadam driveway to our 3 car detached garage with EP Henry. B&T workers were always diligent and respectful of any adjacent property to the current project. Estimates were provided on a timely basis and the work was performed within the estimated start and finish times.
Our project was to design and build 1,000 sq ft patio with sitting wall, lights and walkway using EP Henry stone. Rick is great to work with. He is really on top of things, very responsive, and does exactly what he says he will do. The quality of work was high and he and his crew really knows their craft. The job was large and took a few weeks to do.
I originally had B&T in for an estimate for a new patio for our hot tub. His quote was competitive - right in the middle of five bids. I had another firm do the patio and to put it mildly it was a mess. Pavers were not level, dips in some areas that collected rainwater in puddles. The hot tub had to have a 1/2 inch board put under one side as the pavers were so far out of level. I had that contractor come back and attempt to fix the pavers, and he spend another fully day "fixing" it. He didn't fix it, he made it worse.
So I ended up calling B&T back in and asked him to fix it. His team came in, took up all the patio pavers, releveled the base and reset the entire area and added a new paver border. His team even moved the hot tub off the pavers and moved it back to the correct spot when they were done. The work was absolutely perfect - the way it should have been done in the first place.
While he was there I had him add a weed block fabric and a few tons of stone under or raised deck and add three nice specimen trees in our front yard. B&T may not be the lowest cost - but their work and craftmanship are absolutely top notch. You can't go wrong using B&T, highly recommended.
B&T Landscape built a two-tier pondless waterfall at our house with lights, plants, and river stone boulders. They did an excellent job. They were thorough and came back to make sure the waterfall is running properly for the next season. When they worked, they cleaned up everyday so well that you wouldn't even know they were here. They were professional and courteous. I would recommend them without any hesitation.
When Meg and I envisioned what our new front & back landscaping and hardscaping job would look like we had a certain image in mind of the final product. Rick Bealer, and his B&T crew, took our vision to a whole other level. Rick deployed his years of experience and the crew put together through tremendous craftsmanship an outdoor living area and curb appeal unlike anything we had imagined. We are thrilled with the results of our project. It has created spaces, walkways, and a wonderful grilling area for us as a family to spend time with family and friends. We are very excited to use these spaces for years to come! Thank you B&T for a job that exceeded our expectations!
I have used B&T for multiple services and projects over the years. In my home, they have installed a patio and two walkways. Their quality of work is outstanding along with their responsiveness and commitment to customer satisfaction. Their costs for services and projects relative to their overall craftsmanship and professionalism presents very high value. I would not hesitate to recommend B&T to anyone or an organization considering projects or services of which they can perform.
Great design & professional work! Rick was great in helping us design the space and modifying to fit our needs. The work was performed with great care and quality and we love our new patio. Thanks B&T!
