Using a Contractor to Transform My Back Yard

As soon as we moved into our new home, I knew that I needed to hire a contractor in order to get our backyard in good condition. Our backyard is huge, but it doesn’t really work for me. I like throwing a lot of parties, and so it’s really important that I have some type of deck where guests can stand and mingle outside. I found a photo of something that would work for me, and I immediately called a concrete contractor in Nassau County, NY. I thought that calling someone local would be the best way to go, and I really enjoy working with small businesses.

I called up the contractor and told him what my goal was for the project. I was able to email a copy of my backyard, as well is a photo of my inspirational backyard. He called me back later that day, and we had a very nice conversation about what he thought he could do and how long it would take to do it. I invited not to buy property, and he came out gave me a formal estimate. The costs he was proposing were very reasonable and he went above and beyond what I expected in his drawings.

The construction crew came out two weeks later. They were all very friendly and personable. They were respectful of my space, and try to be as quiet as possible. Before he knew it, the work was done and the foundation had been poured. After drying, I finally got a good look at my new backyard, I was really impressed with the level of quality and how nice it turned out. It really does add to my backyard, and it makes a really nice place for my guests to mingle. I can’t wait to throw my first party and try it out.
