Also, what are the measurements and characteristics of the yard? If you live in an area where there are lots of slops or drainage issues, it’s going to cost more to prep the worksite.

"Beautiful Outdoor Space...
We had a very modest idea of changing our current fire pit area and utilizing stone with a small outdoor kitchen space. Ryan was able to provide a functional and aesthetic stone that complimented our home and yard. He gave us two separate functional spaces by adding some grading which ended up being much more attractive. It was also important to us to have the area look natural; not "prefab" and he more than delivered what we initially imagined. His vision and creativity resulted in a beautiful outdoor space for our friends and family. We would definitely recommend him for your next outdoor project.
