Route 83, was founded in 1960 by Ron and Connie Lester, proprietors of Lester's Bison Farm.

This letter is a 'thank you' for the excellent job of laying bricks on my driveway here on Guerin Road in Libertyville. The quality of workmanship was great, as you did on completely re-doing my patio with bricks, your men were hard working and my area was cleaned up after a days work.
I'm very proud of my brick patio and my new driveway. I've had several good comments from my neighbors on the looks.

In every field of endeavor there are always those few people that go beyond that which is expected of them. Keith, you and your staff are some of these 'few' people.
Virginia and I extend to you and your staff our deepest appreciation, for superior results far beyond our expectations, achieved during the installation and completion of the Patio with Seat Walls, Water Feature and Walkways at our residence.

"Just a quick note to let everybody know that it was a pleasure to work with Keith and the guys on our pavers project. Everything was finished with complete satisfaction.
Keith was so easy to work with. Whatever we wanted, Keith was willing to get done. He was repeatedly on site to make sure things were going OK."
Jerry and Carol Bender
Thank you so much for the beautiful walkway. We are very happy with the work. The stairs are easy to navigate and the brick landings are so beautiful that is looks like a picture from a gardening book of design. Thank you also for giving the project drainage under the walk, the entire project from design through installation reflects Lester's commitment to excellence in both materials and craftsmanship. We are very pleased with all aspects of the project and it has added real value to our home and neighborhood. Thank you so much. We love the attention to detail and workmanship."
Joe and Karen Patrick

We wish you continued success! Thanks,"

"Thank you for the outstanding job Lester’s did replacing our old brick and timber stairs with new brick and stone steps. The design is absolutely beautiful and we are beyond thrilled. The results far exceeded our expectations. It is apparent by the completed project that every detail was considered from the design to the installation. The end result is a reflection of you and your staff’s commitment to professionalism and craftsmanship.

I commend you on the timely scheduling of the work as well as the speedy completion in two days. Your crew worked diligently, particulatly on the partial wall, until it met my expectation. At the end of a long day they took time to clean everything before they left.I am delighted with the result and will be happy to recommend your work.
