We'll handle the entire process from planning to completion and make your outdoor living space the place you'll want to be.

Patios & Walkways

The installation of brick patios and walkways (hardscaping) provides the structure of an outdoor gathering area for guests, outside dining, or a quiet oasis. A walkway provides an inviting entrance to your home, which is both a safe walking surface and an aesthetic border to the plants in your yard. There are several options of colors to match your home siding and design. Concrete pathways are a great way to introduce elegance to your yard that lasts for many years.

Fire Pits & Fireplaces

Fireplaces and fire pits create a beautiful focal point for your entire outdoor living area. We can turn your vision into reality and incorporate a fireplace or fire pit into a space where you and your family and friends can gather. We can customize your fireplace to suit your style and needs. The size and height of our fireplaces create incredible ambiance by emitting a warm and welcoming light that adds a tremendous amount of personality to your existing space.

Retaining & Sealing Walls

Retaining walls are designed to reduce erosion, improve drainage, and enhance beauty while significantly increasing the value of your home. Accent walls offer additional beauty and are highly visible. The best way to double the value of a retaining wall is to make it a seat wall. Seat walls are simply short walls that are designed for comfortable seating.

Ponds & Water Features

Transform your yard into a breathtaking retreat with a pond, waterfall, fountain, or other decorative water features. Imagine stepping outside your home into your very own oasis. Sit back and listen to the soothing sounds of running water while you relax in your very own personal space. We provide a natural, environmentally friendly approach to crafting and sustaining water features and provide you with the most reliable products and best value in the industry.

Outdoor Lighting

Landscape lighting makes a dramatic difference in your backyard. It truly transforms the space. It also provides additional benefits such as enhanced décor, increased security, and added convenience. Landscape lighting adds instant curb appeal to any residence or business. Both white and colored illumination can be used to direct the eye and highlight a property's best features.

Bed Maintenance

Keep your flower bed and garden pristine by removing weeds, wilted plants, compacted soil, and sloppy edges. Our bed maintenance services include weed control, soil cultivation, edge definition, raking, and flower care.

Soil Testing/Diagnosis

A soil test will tell you what nutrients are in your soil and what you may need to add (in the form of fertilizer) for successful crop growth. The most common soil test performed is soil pH, which is a measure of soil acidity. Soil pH is an important factor in plant growth because it affects nutrient availability to the plants.

Soil Restoration

A degraded soil typically loses its ability to supply food and habitation to living organisms. Characteristics of degraded soil include high salinity, a decline in fertility, a decline in organic matter (leading to a decline in soil structure), soil erodibility, an increase in alkalinity, and acidity. Soil restoration is the process of improving the structure, microbial life, nutrient density, and overall carbon levels of soil to restore the soil back to its natural state. Restoring your soil will create a healthy beautiful lawn. Fire pits are smaller than a fireplace but are just as customizable. There are many structures and options that can be designed for your space.

Spring/Fall Clean Up

We will help you with your fall and spring yard clean-up. Our process includes: clearing away leaves, branches, and other debris. We also haul away compost and mow the grass.
