What our clients say ...
"I only wish we had done it sooner!" "I had pavers and planters installed by GB Duarte and the design Gerald came up with was exactly what we wanted. He listened carefully and made thoughtful suggestions to create the perfect hardscape for our needs. They worked quickly and never left any mess at the end of the day. The whole process was just so easy! Once we decided what to do I never had to give it any more thought. Gerald took care of everything. The end result was just beautiful."

“Thank, you, thank you, thank you!” We absolutely love our pavers! And so do our friends and neighbors. Everyone has commented on how beautiful our pool deck and side yard are since we had the pavers installed. Moving into a new home last year was exciting, but the yards were blank canvases, which can be intimidating. We knew we wanted to do something special and you truly made that a reality. We love the colors you helped us choose for the stones, they compliment our house and truly tie everything together. Our home is now complete, and it's never looked so beautiful. Thank you, again!

“… a work of art ...” I want to tell you how thrilled I am with the work Gerald did for me. It was such a pleasure working with Gerald. He took the time to help me pick just the right stones for the project. My gardens looked like such a work of art when they were finished with the pathways that I decided to have them redo my front porch, as well. Gerald redesigned it to make the steps safer and so much more beautiful and I got exactly the look I wanted. I enjoyed talking with Gerald and I really liked how he kept my yard so clean during construction! Thank you very much!

“… transformed our home!” To Whom It May Concern, Gerald Duarte did an excellent job of installing a driveway made with paving stones at our house! Our house is situated at the top of an upslope so our driveway is very large and prominent. As you drive up to our house, the driveway dominates your view. Our 30 year old asphalt driveway was cracked and worn. Gerald removed the old driveway, regraded for proper drainage, added aggregate, compacted the base and brought in sand over the base. He then laid paving stones around the perimeter of the driveway which were anchored in concrete. Gerald carefully filled in the driveway using paving stones in a complicated random pattern that required many, many paving stones. Finally, Gerald swept a special fine sand into the joints and sprayed a water repellent sealant. The new driveway transformed our home! Now when you drive up to our house, you see a beautiful, Italian villa-like driveway which upgrades our entire house and yard! At all times, Gerald was an honest professional, timely and neat, and friendly and easy to talk to. He is a real craftsman and, on top of it all, Gerald is cost competitive! I would highly recommend Gerald to anyone who needs a new driveway!
