We chose Jovian and Stone Landscaping & Construction for our backyard landscaping. This was the biggest mistake we made. We have regretted this ever since. We found Jovian more interested in getting the job completed as soon as possible without regard for quality of workmanship. We had to call Jovian back to fix some substandard work and even after that the outcome is most unsatisfactory, Having paid close to $30,000 to Jovian we are now considering getting someone else to redo the work. Jovian’s focus is on making money and not on quality. I strongly recommend that you choose someone else for your landscaping project unless you have lots of money to waste and are prepared to accept low quality workmanship. Be warned.

Very sorry Frank you are not happy with the work done in 2016. I will take this review to heart and try to learn as best as I can to avoid any mistakes I have made, I take full responsibility. In hindsight there were a few problems before I even started which were not in my control.
1. The fact that your home addition was done and the excavation for the foundation had not had enough time to settle due to the fact that you wanted the work done right away to avoid living in a mud pit, I should have refused to take this contract on as the ground needs at least a full year to settle, it's no wonder all the areas that dropped were exactly where the foundation was dug.
2. Also the designer/architect of your addition paid no attention of the exterior grading and what a problem they had created with having the exterior brick so low as to not leave enough pitch for water flow, a situation your were well aware of and I took on.
For the record I did come out and repair every area you showed me that you were concerned with, and I had no idea you were not satisfied with the work.
I am always available by phone, and would have loved the opportunity to discuss solutions to this problem.
I thank you for your review it hurts the ego but just know that I will do my best to improve, everyday is a gift.
all the best,
Stone Landscaping and Construction
