What People Are Saying

“Kevin and his team were absolutely wonderful to work with–not only are they true artisans who take their jobs seriously, they are thoughtful and kind, making it a pleasure to start our days together during the project. Avalon was on time, on budget, and clear about how the project would be accomplished. I can’t say enough how highly I would recommend them!”
“We were so pleased with the work Avalon provided. Everything was done beautifully and with such care and respect. Beyond that, all the guys were so friendly and professional. Special thanks to Ken and Victor. We would and will gladly pass on your name.”
“We have nothing but glowing reviews for Kevin and his crew. From the competitive estimate to personal design and continuing flexibility and professionalism–the whole experience was fantastic. The neighborhood loves our yard and we are so grateful for your hard work, sense of humor and thoughtfulness. Can’t wait for the backyard!”
“Kevin and the crew were fantastic. The peace of mind that we experienced was priceless. Qualified, professional, courteous, on-time/on-budget, easy-going and hard working–Avalon is the best! Post-job followup and availability is appreciated and drives home the idea that Avalon is a quality group interested in long-term relationships. I respect and value that. Thanks so much, our yard rocks!”
“We love our new patio! You guys did great work and were a pleasure to have around. Victor, you have a great sense of humor. You made me laugh every day!”
“In a nutshell, we are thrilled! Both of us are extremely picky and opinionated, but as soon as we met with Kevin he gave us the confidence we needed to hire Avalon for our project. He is a true professional in every sense of the word. His high standards, meticulous attention to detail, and expert consultation made us feel at ease throughout the process. He listened carefully to our needs and provided timely answers to all of our questions. It is obvious that everyone at Avalon shares a passion for what they do, the whole team was a pleasure to work with. A million thanks for the skillfully executed workmanship and the good karma throughout the process.”
“I never imagined I would be moved to thank the contractors of my neighbors — but I´ve gotta say thanks all the same. Your whole team was friendly, and considerate of the neighbors….Thanks for being excellent contractors in a world that will tolerate a lot of mediocre values. You are great, and I’m very impressed with the work you’ve done next door, and the considerate nature in how you did it!”
“Kevin created a beautiful oasis for our family which we admire and enjoy everyday. Thanks Kevin and Avalon!”
“Avalon’s work is excellent. The final product makes me smile every time I look at it. Everything happens as they say it will. A delightful experience. A present awaited me everyday during the project in the form of new changes. Can’t wait until I can do the backyard!”
“Everyone was great to work with. Great crew! Fine workmanship and willingness to go the extra mile to meet our whims. Thanks!”
“Kevin, thanks so much for all you and Avalon have done–your workmanship is only surpassed by your integrity! You have a couple of fans who will do all we can to let people know what a great company you are part of. We LOVE our new porch and walkway!”

Dispatches from Avalon

 Fresh new gabion walls and planters at the fresh new @kexp studios!  Time to trim! Now is the best time to trim back your grasses and ferns to guarantee they'll look great come summer. Trim back to 2 - 3" from the ground for best results. A good weekend activity (when you're not watching the Super Bowl) and easy as pie.
 Fern fronds nearly unfurled! Such a treat to see all this spring green ushering us out of winter.  A green driveway with a twist! (design by Molly LaPatra)
 Vince (carefully!) setting some granite steps for @marty.riemer while the excavator gnome supervises the operation.  Kevin and crew representing Avalon all the way over in Gringott's. Exotic locales! #avalonallaroundtheworld
 A contemporary water feature with a lot of beautiful blue! The process and the finished product.  Nothing wrong with dreaming of spring in the thick of December...
