A Full Landscaping Makeover

With winter temperatures approaching, this is typically my time off for landscaping and yard work. This year, I decided that winter is the perfect time to take a good look around my yard and plan for the spring! After many hours of online research and home improvement television shows, I decided I wanted to give my yard a full makeover. From new flowers and trees, to fancy fountains and walkways, I knew that I would not be able to handle these changes on my own. I contacted a local Leesburg VA landscape design professional to take charge of my yard. Lucky for me, I picked a great contractor who was very helpful and efficient every step of the way!

Pool View

I was really excited when we purchased a home that had a pool in the backyard. I thought it would be a great place to throw outdoor parties, hang out with friends, and swim with the kids. While the pool is very beautiful, the same could not be said for the area around it. It was dull and unexciting, and it made spending time in and around the pool a lot less fun. I was happy to find lawn care in Water Mill NY. They helped me to design and create an area around the pool that was beautiful and safe for my family and I.

One of my favorite additions was the fact that our contractors were experienced in installing wood stoves in Hawaii. They also added plants that wouldn't be affected by the chlorine, and increased the walkway around the pool so that it was easier to move around. They really helped to increase the beauty and functionality of my lawn!

Backyard Beauty

When dreaming about my perfect home, I always envisioned having a big backyard where I could throw parties and entertain guests. When we picked out our first house, we made sure to find one with a large yard where I could host those types of gatherings. The problem was, while the yard was big, it was also not well maintained by the previous owners, which meant that we had a lot of work to do before we could start throwing parties! We found landscaping in Richmond VA, and they helped us to transform our yard into the most special event space. We added foliage, flowers, even stonework and lighting! It really is a magical spot, and our guests are always amazed at how beautiful it looks. We've even had requests from friends and family to host their own events there! We are so happy with the way it turned out, and I'm thrilled that my landscape design in Bradenton FL was brought to life!

New House, New Yard

After moving into our new home, with a newborn and finally getting back to work – I have had no time for any type of care around our home. Our lawn was mowed once by a new neighbor of ours for $20 the second day we moved in, but he also managed to ruin some flowers in the process as well. Now that it’s been a few months, I realized that our backyard, much bigger than I had realized, needed a lot of work. This work would probably take hours, and that’s something we just didn't have. As much as we loved the thought from our neighbor when he mowed the lawn, we really needed to hire a professional in lawn care in Shawnee KS. I started to look around online, and with many high star ratings I finally found a place. They offered more services than I knew of, and were able to show me examples of what could be done to our lawn. We had them come out, during the day when we weren't home and they fixed our yard completely. I came home after work and my yard was so different – but in a good way! I was so happy with the changes that I decided to throw a party just to show it off. That weekend, we received so many compliments on our yard and were able to refer many people to our wonderful lawn care company.
