Cliff Choplin and Maciel Herrera founded Thurston Turf and Pavers, LLC to raise the bar in hardscaping. Our co-founders went into business together as true partners, and they offer hands-on customer service throughout the entire process.

Excited by innovative designs, precise finishes, and talented team members, we do things differently.

Meet Cliff

Operation and Sales Manager

With four years of experience in paver sales and a background in appraising, Cliff knows exactly how to break down your options in a helpful, clear way. His no-pressure approach is super friendly, and no one knows the industry better than him. With Cliff, it's always a conversation - never a sales pitch.

During the consultation, Cliff helps clients compare design options, discover what's possible, and compare prices with a free estimate. Even with a busy schedule, he's always accessible. Cliff continues to work with clients from the first call to final approval, so you'll always have a partner on your side.

Meet Maciel

Construction Manager

Maciel is a self-starter and skilled worker with more than five years of niche experience in paving and turf installation.

Over the years, he and his crew members have installed paving stones and artificial turf for projects of all sizes. Maciel is always friendly, dedicated, and attentive, whether he's working on a small-scale residential paving project or a commercial turf installation valued at $150,000.

Our Team

Turf & Paving Experts

Unlike most local paving companies, we work with a consistent team of employees that we trust. Our paver and turf installers are the best local contractors with five years of specialized experience, on average. We truly value every team member's technical skill and focused commitment.

The skill of our crew directly impacts the quality of your finished project. For that reason and so many others, we recruit, hire, and maintain the best local talent on staff. With our extensive industry connections, we can also bring on extra help and hire subcontractors for large-scale projects as needed.
