Interlock Driveway, stone porch, front yard makeover, side walkway and large multi-tiered back patio with flowerbeds

We had put off doing work outside for many years and finally decided to take the plunge this year. Everything outside was original from when the house was built and we didn't really have any idea what type of interlock would look good, or who we should hire to help us make our project a reality. After speaking with several companies and not feeling the vibe, we looked to Homestars and found so many good reviews about Kingstone we asked Scott to come by and give us a quote. Scott was ridiculously patient while we tried to figure out the design, the color, the stone... every detail. We decided on one thing, then another, then another... (I'd have hated us) and when we finally came up with our design, it was very detailed - literally pulled from a magazine. It was also scary because we'd never done anything like this before, but we took our time with Scott and finally settled on a full project scope and decided this was the way to go. Enter Airz and the crew - and off the top I want to say that the guys in this crew are nothing short of heroic. I've done a lot of work around our house myself, but I've never seen guys work like this before. Part of what we needed was to safely remove a very large tree from the side of the driveway along with a bunch of shrubs and bushes out back. We also needed a large spooky pine moved as it was in the way of the back patio design. On top of that, our road frontage is tiny (lot is like a diamond shape on a curve in the road), so of course we were in construction-mode for a while but Kingstone kept everything contained. The crew worked 6 days a week and 9 - 10 hour days in the heat of the summer and throughout the process, every single issue or unknown that came up, large or small, Ariz was immediately talking about it with us and offering suggestions on what to do - he always put our needs first - and I'll say this, he REALLY knows stone. Though we couldn't possibly have envisioned the end result, the transformation was nothing short of spectacular for us. We are THRILLED with their work. We love the back patio with attached tiered flower beds (which were built around a decade old Japanese maple). The walkway from the front of the house transitions to step stones with river rock between at the back gate and it looks beautiful, as does the front porch / flower bed combo. We opted to use river rock to cover the rest of the small front lawn around our central Katusura tree, and added a nice large armor stone in front - looks clean and tidy and finally no grass to cut at the front or side! They expanded the driveway with the design we chose, which is the biggest visual component and it turned out looking exactly like the picture we started with! Ariz had to ensure the design would fit within our dimensions, which were ultimately quite different from the picture - I don't know how he did it, but it was masterful. So many people from around the area came by to see and compliment how it looks so we know this was the right choice. I can't say enough about the workmanship of this crew. Our thanks to Ariz, Scott, Jerry and the "Kings of Stone" crew for your help in making our home look so fantastic! We'll recommend you to everyone. Thank you again guys!
