Paving contractors. Recommendations?

By xcskier 4 September 2013 19

I require someone to do some paving work in my backyard.

It would be a small job (5-8 sq m) involving curved edging and paving around a drain.  

I’m in the inner north. 

Can anyone recommend a reliable paver who charges reasonable rates?


What’s Your opinion?

I just had Matt and his two staff from Blade’s Landscaping create a deck and slate steps for me. I give them 5/5 stars for service, price and workmanship. I couldn’t be happier. Highly recommend. And really nice blokes too. I found Matt on the Riot Act, but here is his website if you want http://www.bladeslandscaping.com.au/

Although this thread is a bit old, I would like to recommend Matt Conrick and his team from Blades Landscaping.

They have just completed paving our curved driveway (almost 100m2) and I am really pleased with the result. I wanted them to use recycled bricks supplied by us, which they were happy to do. We also wanted an entry path, pad for the bins, a small area of modwood fencing and a gate. They also removed three shrubs with the bobcat and lay some irrigation pipe across the drive – nothing was too much trouble. Completed the job in a week.
They are all very polite and left the site looking neat and tidy.
Matt is also a horticulturist and has done other landscaping work for my neighbour.
Price was reasonable. I didn’t bother getting another quote having seen their work next door. Matt 0409487278

Thank you everyone recommending Teague. We got a quote from ciske also recommended here. Quoted nearly 4 times more to lay pavers than Teague. Teagues did great job he was on time. Recommend him to everyone. Did exactly as we asked we are very pleased with our courtyard. We wanted a flat courtyard on a sloping block merging into a sloping car port. Not really a simple job. Got it in before Christmas too!

Would you mind giving us an idea on the size of your courtyard and how much it ended up costing?

Hi,
I made a recommendation on The Riot act, a few months ago, for a 3rd generation paver called Ciske Van Oudheusden. He did a terrific job on 3 areas of paving and was extremely reasonable.
Great chap and easy to get along with. Got stuck in and finished on time.

Tharrr you go.

Pretty straight forward, good job, completed it in….3-4 days I think it was. Easily the most competitive price we got for that area.

Thanks … looks good.

Just had some done by Teague – good job and very competitive price. He came in well below a lot of other quotes.

http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/aranda/landscaping-gardening/teagues-landscaping-rural/1026885559

I can send some photos of our job if you’d like.

Man, I’d go with this Teague bloke purely for the fact that his logo looks like the cover of a 1980’s/90’s metal band! Bonus points if he turns up to the job wearing dessert boots, tight black jeans, has boofy long hair and a wafer thin moustache!

Would you rather he wear a suit and tie???

Purely tongue in cheek.

Genuinely though, I really do like his logo, it’s cool.

Yes, please. Are you able to post them on a site and share the URL here?

xcskier 10:47 am 05 Sep 13

I’m sure that Teague hasn’t a monopoly on paving in the inner north. Any other suggestions?

zllauh 10:38 am 05 Sep 13

Any one knows Teague email id ?

Thanks. I’d be interested in pics, but how to receive? Did they charge by the hour, or for the whole job?

Let me know how you go with that, spades? I’ll have some paving work to be done when I can afford it and/or find someone affordable to do it for me.

spades 3:13 pm 04 Sep 13

Interesting.

I’m looking for similar work done, but because I’m on a budget I’ve started contacting concreters instead. Might save me a few hundred bucks.
