Landscaper Experienced With Temporary Removal/Replanting
Hi folks. We are in the unenviable position of having to sue our neighbors for the damage done to our property for their unconstrained bamboo. I've found a great resource on the bamboo reclamation - which basically will entail digging a ditch on both sides of the property line and leaving it open for some period of time because exposed bamboo roots won't grow through he air. But I will also need to get quotes to fix all the damage that has occurred which basically comes down to three things - our landscaping (this request), our fence and landscaping (removing and saving mature plants to the degree possible, replanting where not). So any recommendations on folks to do a patio rebuild?

Hi Marston Gould that sounds awful. I'm sorry you're having to deal with that. Sounds like it's pretty bad if the patio needs a full rebuild. Is it a concrete patio?

Highly recommend Brier Creek Gardens. Great at everything you described including patio/hardscape. Also they are about to do a bamboo replacement for bamboo removed by our neighbor. Maybe there is some benefit to be had if your bamboo removal can be reused! Here is their website: briercreekgardens.com

Yikes. I want to see pics! This feature is coming soon... One of our neighbors has bamboo and this is making me nervous.

Adam Doppelt the bamboo remediation guy says his portion will start at around $20k. To give some idea of how bad its gotten, the bamboo ryzomes have gone underneath our brick patio and rolled the bricks then they found the clay downspouts that led to the pipe inside our home that led to the sewer. I've already had to have the entire pipe cut out and replaced and that downspout was retired. We will likely lose a 25 year old Rosemary bush that is the size of a small automobile, a weeping cherry that was on the lot in the 1920s and a camilia that is nearly 20' tall. Not to mention about 150 other smaller plants.

Ryan Bruss the patio was built not long after the home. It's not concrete. Its sand covered with a material that no longer is produced that is sort of a mix of mastic and lime. Then bricks.

Hi Marston- I noticed Kirby Winfield made a great recommendation for Verde Design Studio. They look like they do some concrete and landscape masonry projects. Hope this helps.

Not sure about the complexity of the project. That's why we gotta add photos :) I highly recommend my landscaper, and he does excellent work if you give clear directions on materials and design. We've had him do things like put in edging and river rocks. I would trust him with more elaborate projects too. Big savings vs a full on landscape architect. Sok Landscaping

What's your estimate of the total damage? This sounds like a complete nightmare

Adam Doppelt / $35-40k yet to go. Similar already spent. When we moved in we found ryzomes in the main pipe to sewer.

That is unbelievable. So frustrating. My guy can probably help with the patio if you know what you want, as long as it doesn't involve pouring concrete. Are you looking for patio design, or just rebuilding the same patio?
