Tello's Landscapes
I would highly recommend Tello's Landscaping to all of my friends and neighbors in the Phoenix metro area.Jose and his team of landscape professionals are very hard working, dedicated to meeting the customer's specifications and execute the project in a manner that utilizes professional techniques combined with craft and style. Tello's Landscaping totally transformed our backyard, deck and swimming pool from an overgrown desert landscape to what now looks like the amenities of an upscale hotel. Jose identified several serious issues regarding erosion, drainage and the health of landscape vegetation within ten minutes during our initial consultation. Jose and his team were personable and pleasant to work with. I felt the project cost estimates provided by Jose were very fair in relation to the attention to detail, focus on customer satisfaction and pride in making their customer happy. You would have a hard time finding a better price for the value of work that Jose and his team accomplished in the local Phoenix market. I am very happy with the way my yard looks feels and functions after the completion of our project. Our dogs love it too !! Thank you to all the good people of Tello's Landscaping

Building Block Masonry
Building Block Masonry just finished repairing the retaining wall around my back yard. It had been water damaged due to old/ improper water-proofing and no drainage holes. My yard sits about 5 feet above the desert floor so it is very important that this wall stays intact. The owner of the company, Bob Bivens, thoroughly assessed the damage and provided his expert opinion on what needed to be done. I was relieved to find out that he didn't have to re-build the wall. They were able to schedule the work very quickly and even completed the job ahead of schedule. Bob even personally came over and reviewed the work that his crew did to make sure all was done well. Bob and his crew are very professional, honest, always prompt, and did quality work.

We contacted Building Block Masonry and the owner Bob came over to hear our ideas. We needed a patio paver walkway all around our new build house and an existing wall taken down to add a decorative gate in. WOW!! After hearing Bob's suggestions, we could never even imagine the possibilities! Our track home was transformed! The Building Block crew was always on time, cleaned up after each days work and they were so respectful. My daughter is now calling them for a custom outdoor kitchen! We can't say enough great things about the work that Building Block Masonry did. Highly Recommend!

After a friend referred Building Block Masonry to me, I called and talked to the owner. He was very knowledgeable and advised me the best way to fix my retaining wall that had damage. His crew was respectful of our home and always cleaned up after each day. My wall looks great! I feel more secure now, knowing the materials used and skill that went into building my wall was finally done right. My friend was right on, Building Block Masonry was the call I should I have made a long time ago. Highly Recommended

Bob came out within 24 hours to inspect our wall that had been damaged when a car came racing thru the fence and knocked out 30 feet of masonry wall. He gave us a bid the same day and others said it would be a week to even get a bid. Their work was amazing and they build the block walls to code unlike some others that give out lowball pricing. I would recommend them for anyone needing work on a block wall who wants it to stand thur our monsoon seasons.Great job and expertise.

After getting several estimates, I chose Building Block Masonry to enlarge my back patio and raise my block fence around my property. I am very pleased with the outcome! The owner Bob told me that he has been in business for 20 years...it certainly shows in the quality of work that was done. Building block Masonry gets more than 5 stars from me!

My neighbor hired this company to build a fence in their yard. It turned out so nice that I decided to give them a try to build a fire pit area in my backyard. It turned out great, I absolutely love it! The guys were quick, professional and neat... I am extremely pleased and would recommend them to anyone! Thanks!
Tips & Advices
Rutting occurs in the wheel tracks of a road and is generally seen when the asphalt isn't thick enough to support traffic.
Edge cracks are caused by weak edges. When there isn't enough support at the edge, the road will begin to stress and crack over time.
Depressions, are caused when the pavement isn't as deep in one area, or the land on which the road was laid is uneven. A slight depression can be fixed with another layer of asphalt.
Transverse cracks run perpendicular to the road's centerline, and can be caused by poor joint construction. Seasonal or daily temperature changes can also contribute to transverse cracks.
Longitudinal cracks are parallel to the road's centerline or the direction the driveway or parking lot was paved. They are caused by poor joint construction or simply aging pavement.
