I started my masonry career in 1977 laying brick, block; building traditional fireplaces and Rumford fireplaces; laying brick paver and flagstone patios.  In the mid 80’s concrete pavers we introduced and became very popular throughout the 1990’s.  Presently, I am a Belgard, Nicolock and Techo- Pro and I am also a certified IPCI, NCMA, PICPI installer.Licensed MHIC #97503 and insured.

You might have seen me on Renovation – Nation, hosted by Steve Thomas which aired April 22, 2009.  On the show, I did the excavation and  helped  prepare the base for Landscape Concepts to  install a “GREEN” Permeable Paver Patio system made from recycled bottles, bags and tires in the Washington, D.C. area.

Currently I am working with the masonry program at the Frederick County Career and Technology Center, Frederick, Maryland.  Mr. John Clark is the instructor who teaches students the masonry trade.  The entire construction programs at CTC construct a home and sell it to the public.  This year I have joined partnership with the masonry program at CTC to introduce concrete pavers into their curriculum.  I, along with Mr. Clark and his students are installing two sidewalks, a patio and a permeable paver driveway for the 2009-2010 house project.  What better way for Mr. Clark’s masonry students to participate in this hands on experience putting their classroom skills to practical use.  While I am working on this project, CTC’s multimedia program will film and produce a “How To” video on installing Nicolock paving stones and permeable pavers.  This video will be used as a teaching tool for Mr. Clark’s masonry program and Nicolock.

My motto is “Proper planning prevents poor performance”, this is the basis of my business.  There is no substitute for the years of experience I have in the masonry trade.  The success of any project is a well planned design and accurate drawing with dimensions; any project will benefit from this.  A hardscape plan can serve a much greater purpose than just looking good.  With the use of proper design and optimizing the use of the outdoor space for the placement of sitting walls, steps, barbeque grills, waterfalls, fireplaces, fire pits or any other feature you choose.  Remember, the most important part of any project is the foundation (base preparation) and the compaction of the aggregate.  The most beautiful work cannot withstand a poor base, eventually it will fail, so any job worth doing is worth doing RIGHT the first time.  For your well being and piece of mind, request to see their portfolios; ask for names of past customers; personally take a road trip to see one of their former projects; get multiple bids for your job; but most of all, make sure they are licensed and have adequate insurance.  A good contractor should be confident with their abilities and workmanship and should freely give you any information you request.

The hardscape manufactures I endorse are Belgard, Nicolock, Techo-Bloc, Vast Recycled Pavers, EP Henry
