We hired Starr Contracting to re-grade our backyard and install a new patio with fire-pit and a play area for our son. Peter was extremely prompt with providing us an initial quote for the project and then making suggestions/revisions to the design so we could work within our budget. Peter and his team cleaned up our yard at the end of each day and provided us with daily updates on their progress. Along the way, they suggested some modifications to our original design and we could not be happier with the end result! The pride that they take in their work is apparent! Their expertise and craftsmanship showed through every step of the project. We cannot wait to enjoy many years in our new backyard.

We were so glad Starr was willing to wait for us to get our patio and walk done. Our Patio and walk is like a dream project out of a magazine. They worked on every detail of stone color, rock size, lighting, and our feature wall. We had a budget and they kept to it.
Peter and staff were clean, professional, timely, respectful and so creative. Starr was far beyond anyone else we interviewed.
We will have them back this year to do more work.

We had Peter Starr design and build a patio with a walkway to the main entrance of our home in Avon, CT. He did a superb job of designing it, producing computerized drawings with accurate estimates. He is highly creative and highly professional. He introduced several features that we had not thought of that added greatly to the overall success of the project. The execution of the project was also superb. He started on time, cleaned up the site every day while on the job, and finished on schedule. The minor landscaping around the project was beautiful. We could not have been more pleased with his work and recommend him highly.
