Make a statement with your Walks
They help create a welcoming environment and invite your guests to enter a special place.
We have the knowledge and experience to use many different types of materials including: bricks, pavers, flagstone, and other natural materials.
Our landscape installation crews take every opportunity to install the landscape so it will thrive and endure for decades to come. Our installation crews use the highest quality materials and plants available. We search plant nurseries and growers throughout the northeast to procure the most appropriate plants for each job. Our people are highly trained in the correct and proper methods of installing plant materials, stone walls, water features, patios, and formal gardens.
All walks will be excavated to a depth of 8-12” below final grade. The width of the walk or patio will be over-dug by 6” on each side.
A base of crushed stone will be installed to a depth of 5-9” and compacted with a tamper in 3” lifts in order to reduce settling.
A thin layer of mason sand will be laid in order to achieve the proper pitch and will also serve as a bedding layer for the walk material.
The material of your choice is then laid in the pattern you have selected. A border course is then cut into the walk. Restraint edging is then spiked into place. This will help your walk to stay true to form.
Polymeric sand is then swept into the joints. The poly sand acts as a grout which holds the pavers firmly in place and reduces weed growth. A tamper is then run over the surface that will set the material firmly in place. Finally your new walk is hosed down to reveal the final product. This method is used on all concrete paver products. Clay or natural materials may vary.
Benson Enterprises guarantees your patio not to settle or shift for two years baring improper builders grading or other reason unrelated to the craftsmanship of the work. Click here to see our complete Installation Terms of Service.
“Work: extensive attention to existing plantings, building an attractive stone walk [approx. 75 ft.] including drainage, creating a mounded front yard area with planting, planting 60 sq. ft. of additional ground cover. They removed heavily overgrown “volunteer” bushes and cut back an area of trees that blocked the sun. These are the major items. They attended to multiple small tasks as a landscaper should, but I hadn’t seen that since I was a teenager [1950’s]. They far EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS given our experiences fixing-up our house and yard over the past 43 years. The check-offs above give an general idea of performance, but were exceeded, Their work was done on time, with daily clean up, The foreman and workers were an effective, skilled and cooperative team. The supervisor came by regularly.”
