All, I am planning on having a paver patio installed at my home. As you can tell by my name I like to do things myself but, I am smart enough to know when something is beyond my energy/skill level. I estimate this project at 450 SF. and it includes a small retaining wall. I want to make an "Apple-to-Apples" comparison of lanscape contractors. Therefore, my question: Is it in poor form to ask 3-4 contractors to come out, at the same time, while I describe exactly what I want. The reason for this fashion is, what if the second guy offers a better grade of paver than the first or comes up with a great idea, then I have to call back the first guy and try to explain this idea. Of course I will offer up this project to members of Lawnsite.com primarily as I do believe that I will get a better grade of landscaper than by exclusively looking in the yellow pages. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
