When it comes to our yards most of us want them to look nice; like flowers, pretty plants, maybe a pond or a fountain. Usually we want a place where we can escape and get away from the crazy world we live in. But when is the best time to do it? Where do we start? How do we plan? Thankfully there are people out there that can actually do these jobs for us.

Whether you have a small project in mind or a complete renovation, you can pretty much choose any time of the year to start it. However, it takes time to get these things organized so planning ahead is is the most important part. Start by contacting the prospective landscaping company to set up an appointment. Once an appointment is set, a representative will get a better idea of what you want to accomplish and what your goals are with the project. There will also be a discussion of what your ready and willing to spend. This is important so we don't over design your project. This appointment is really about getting to know you and you getting to know us as well. It’s best to call a couple months in advance to get the ball rolling. The best projects are the ones where the company and the client have been in contact for a few months. The reason for this is because we want to make sure you are happy and are getting exactly what you want. Besides the traditional 2D design that many landscaping companies provide, we provide our designs in 3D. This allows you to actually see what your home will look like with the project complete; flowers, plants, fire pits, ponds, all of it. the flowers or the plants they’ve chosen.
Once the design is complete, we will meet up with you to go over the design concept from the realistic images we create. This meeting can be the final meeting before starting your project or it could be one of many; depending on any revisions you might want to make to the design. After a final decision is made regarding your landscaping project, your renovation can start. Depending on how big or complex your project may be will dictate how long your project will take to complete. On average, in a month we complete about eight to ten small projects. However, a larger project may take a few months to complete. Some types of projects we design and build include:
Water features such as fountains, waterfalls, ponds, swimming ponds, water plants
Patios, driveways, walkways, porches
Hardscapes like fire pits, fire places, retaining walls
Outdoor kitchens, built-in grills, decks
Native plant beds, landscape beds & plants
Basically anything related to outdoor living we can help you with!
