My husband and I hired Mr Barnard, because he had the best references and presented the best quote for our garden paving project. And we're very glad to have found him among your recommended providers because he's a warm person and also a true professional. He visited our home and took a lot of time to present good solutions. Thanks again for your great work! Also a big thank you to the Procompare team.
Thanks for your help! All five garden paving providers that you recommended contacted me in 2 days after my request, so I was really surprised by their fast response. I'm very satisfied with the selected company so I'll definitely use your site again!
You did an excellent job helping us find a garden paving company from our city! We contacted a few ourselves but the quotes we received from your companies were far better! Our project is still in progress, so I can't give you my final opinion, but so far, the project is going smoothly!
If paving isn’t properly done, the paved area may sag in certain areas as layers beneath the surface of the earth shift and organic material in topsoil deteriorates over time. Another thing that might happen is that the paving blocks or slabs may break due to the weight on top of the paving, use a car for example, isn’t distributed throughout the layers beneath the paving.
Working out how much you need is very straightforward as block paving is bought by area rather than per block. Calculate the block paving you need by multiplying the length of the space by the width. This will give you the area for paving in square meters.
That depends on the type of pavement: sand grouted paving installations can be used immediately after grouting while cement grouted installations should not be trafficked for seven to ten days after installation.
Concreting and paving can both make big differences to your space. They each come with their own sets of pros and cons, so your decision shouldn’t be based on price alone. Standard concrete slabs are generally cheaper per square meter; however, the long term costs for repairs and replacements often exceed the initial savings in upfront costs.
You can’t lay pavers directly on dirt, so there’s a little more to the job than simply laying some stones onto the ground. Preparing the ground properly will prevent sinks and cracks from appearing in the surfaces later on, and it will also prevent the growth of weeds between the pavers. Prep-work for paving usually involves measuring the area to be paved and laying out a thin layer of road base evenly over the entire area (this can be done with a shovel or a levelling rake). After this, the surface is dampened with water and – with the help of a plate compactor – is compacted to a depth of about 10mm. Once this has been completed, sand can be laid and leveled over the surface and the area is ready to be paved.
Unlike many other driveway applications, such as asphalt or concrete, once the pavers are compacted and sanded, you can immediately drive on them. Asphalt and concrete have to set and cure before you can use them.

I would like to request a quote for a simple garden layout, mostly planting of lawn/grass and installation of irrigation. Regarding irrigation in particular, I would like to have water tanks installed for gathering rain water to be used when the tanks have water, otherwise a switch system of sorts to use municipality water when tank water is not available, including an automated/timing system for watering the garden. I'm not sure if that is something you do, or if it is something I would have to do beforehand. Nevertheless, I would still like to get an idea of what the installation of irrigation and planting of grass would cost at my home. The garden is in a sorry state and I think this is the right direction to go. Would it be possible for someone to come and look and provide me with a quote or rough estimate, that such a project would cost me? I would prefer email communication as per regarding of the meeting.

I do not need someone who sits in their bakkie whilst a crowd of people rush through the job with weed eaters and leave a half finished job. I also need people I can contact for referrals. Thank you.

We rent our freestanding home with garden. It has not been watered and much in the garden has died. There are mature trees throwing lots of shade. The soil type is naturally clay, but the beds have been enriched previously. I only want hardy waterwise plants. The small lawn needs replacement (in shade a good deal of the day). The gravel parking areas alongside the drive need weed killing. An overgrown ornamental vine trellis needs a strong prune. And beyond that, some general flower bed neatening.
I would like to get a quotation from a professional landscaping company as this is a very big project that is about + sqm. I need a team that can cut and trim trees and the lawn. The is another side of the project that is for vegetables I just need someone to maintain it. Please feel free to contact me for more info.
