Lawn/Garden/Landscape Questions

I have a few questions so i'll stick to one thread about them.

1) I'm looking to install brick pavers in my back patio area, and extend out my existing patio. I've looked into doing it myself, but would also like to price it out, for someone else to do it. Would this typically be a landscape architect?
2) Right now i'm having problems with clovers in my backyard. I bought the house in November. I've already used scott's winterguard when i moved in. And i have some Bonus S i will be putting down in March. Then in the summer i was going to put down some Ironite. After a few years this should take care of the problem, just wondering if anyone else has any tips.

Spray the clovers with a weed killer before your grass comes up. Home Depot should have something safe for your lawn that you can attach directly to the end of your hose, no mixing, etc.

Only way to get the clover now is spray 24d. The winter guard you put down in November was too late.

Find a crew working somewhere and ask them if they do side work on the weekends.

2-4D the clover

Not sure what to tell you about the bricks. I'd do it myself. Good excuse to drink beer.

re: Lawn/Garden/Landscape Questions
They are in Baton Rouge if anyone need the info. I have used them for all kinds of stuff, yard work, moving, etc. They just aren't good at building stuff. I have used them for years...

ETA: you and 2 of them and you will get more work done in a day than you would in a week by yourself...

Do you know if they paint? My parents are looking to have some painting done soon. And I hate painting with a glorious passion.

re: Lawn/Garden/Landscape Questions
Rye is tough to chemically treat without damage.If you overseeded with rye its getting close enough to spring to burn it out then treat the weeds. Anytime in the future apply preemerge herbicide a month or so before overseeding with rye

I believe 2-4D is labeled for rye. Just read the label.

Please elaborate... I have winter rye and last year my centipede looked like crap..... Is there something I should do to the rye before the centipede starts coming out of dormancy?

re: Lawn/Garden/Landscape Questions
Cut it short and and let the warmer temps burn it out. Its a cool season grass so it should begin to die soon. Most professionals advise against overseeding with rye because it chokes out the centipede when spring arrive. Over time can thin out or even kill your centipede.
