Davalos Stone Masonry
This is a great company run by the Davalos brothers...they bent over backwards to handle my patio expansion and did a great job! The job was always overseen by one of the Davalos brothers. They always did what they said they would do. They stood behind their promises and workmanship and my patio looks great! They came back quickly to correct a minor issue after they had been fully paid too. The only downside was that they brought in a sprinkler system company called Landscape Creations run by Jeff Stroope. This person failed to oversee his crew properly. He failed to handle cutting off and rerouting/reconnecting the sprinkler system properly. He failed to reconnect the city water line after the patio expansion project was complete. He refused to answer phone calls. He cursed out my husband when he managed to get through. We had to pay someone else to clean out lines, valves, and reconnect the city water line. Dont use this sub-contractor and you will be very happy with Davalos Stone Masonry!
Tips & Advices
A plant guarantee covers the buyer that if a plant doesn’t survive the guaranteed amount of time (usually one year, but sometimes up to 5), the plant will be replaced. This does not cover annuals, which have a life cycle of only 1 year.
How often to water a grass lawn depends on the climate, the type of soil that surrounds your property, and how deep the root system of your grass grows. A general rule for watering is: every day during summer in warm climates. This rule can be modified if lawns are older, or the climate cooler. For mature well-rooted lawns, deeper but less-frequent waterings are recommended as being healthier than daily 15-minute rinses.
Fruit trees should be watered different frequency of times depending when they were planted. Younger trees, up to the second growing season, should be watered twice a week. Make sure to give up to 1 full gallon of water weekly to newly planted trees during their growing season, and more when it’s gaining  eaves. Once the tree reaches mature fruit-bearing stage, waterings can be cut back, as the roots are sunk and can find ground water.
The question of when to plant fruit trees really depends on climate. The general rules are: You should not plant fruit trees when the ground is frozen, when the peak daytime temperature is more than 90 degrees Fahrenheit, or when the forecast shows extreme weather (i.e. a tornado warning). Aside from those rules, the suggested planting times are either fall (which most people recommend) or spring (for bare-root trees).
There are many kits sold on the market that measure soil pH levels. Dyes, test strips, and electronic pH meters are all formulated to assist the home gardener. Many people choose to simply shake up soil and distilled water, and then measure the pH with a hand-held meter However, some people consider this method not very useful, and suggest using a lab for greater accuracy.
