Backyard Makeover

This project involved a large scale makeover.  The owner removed an above ground swimming pool which left a large 50’x70′ area of crushed rock and sand.  We leveled the entire area and then outlined a garden that ran the length of the backyard with edgers.  We took the space in front of their outdoor shed and created a paver walkway to their patio and the yard.  After creating the outline of the garden, we chose the entire shrubbery assortment based on the owner’s desires for maintenance and appearance.  We then seeded the remainder of the yard for grass to grow in.

Walkway Refresh

For this project we removed an older, overgrown bush and the cement pavers and replaced the entire walkway and garden.  We replaced the cement pavers with a brick walkway and lined in with new edgers.  Where the shrubbery was removed, we  planted a new garden with less clutter and added some landscape lighting to finish it off.

Pergola Refresh

For this project, the existing Pergola was in disrepair and required some TLC.  Wisteria bushes were trimmed back and the banisters were replaced.

Sidewalk and Patio Redesign

For this project, we removed the old concrete pavers and replaced them with contemporary looking portage stones.  For the patio we then removed several inches of earth, put down stone dust, sand, and tamped it.  Then stone was put down to finalize the patio.

Backyard Fire Pit

In this project we transformed the location where an above ground pool was located into yet another place for the family to spend time during the summer.  After removing the pool, a brick patio was laid with a fire pit built in the center.  We also constructed an outdoor version of the buffet.
