When the large, established trees in this backyard landscape began to shade and weaken the once lush lawn, the homeowner knew it was time for a change. We strategically replaced the sun-loving grass with landscape beds that followed the patterns of shade and then filled them with low maintenance shade-loving shrubs, perennials and groundcovers. We also created walk-able pathways with natural stone pavers and gave this busy family a serene stone patio on which to relax. The lovely pergola will offer even more shade in the summer months. This landscape filled with tough shade-loving plants creates a natural woodland feel in this once barren backyard. Growing healthy grass under large shade trees is never easy. However, we have many wonderful and beautiful solutions when it's time for your lawn to be replaced.
Sometimes your front yard needs a facelift. Wate-rwise plantings and a few pops of color from pottery and furniture transformed this front yard and improved curb appeal.
This University Park home has gotten a rustic and classic facelift with new formal borders and stone pathways that accent the front yard. The backyard is now a beautiful and low-maintenance retreat, complete with a new pool, fountain features, and artificial turf. The faux turf will keep the pool area clean when the kids and dogs want to play!
In this landscape, we wanted to create a lush, yet very natural and less formal feel. The landscape needed to be both low-maintenance and water-wise. We blended lush groundcover plantings in shaded areas with heat hardy and water-wise perennials and roses. Extensive stone pathways, patios and a stained concrete driveway make this landscape standout. We also created a series of streams and fountains to create a relaxing backyard retreat.
The backyard space of this townhouse had a lot of potential, but the owners just weren't sure what to do with it! We transformed the space from neglected to a natural retreat. The owners are gardeners and so requested we leave open space for them to "plant and putter".
Our homeowners at this property wanted a cozy, low-maintenance and dog-friendly backyard with a stone patio...plus, some friendly front yard entertaining! We created a lush lawn area for the pup, easy-care color plantings and low-maintenance perennial plantings complete with a bubbler fountain and river rock "stream". In the front yard, we build a stone patio to enhance curb appeal and provide a place to relax with and entertain the neighbors!
Do you have a trouble spot in your landscape where grass won't grow, but you really need it? Perhaps you have big dogs that tear up the lawn making it muddy all the time, or you just have too much shade. Perhaps the lawn is struggling up against the pool. Whatever the situation, sometimes faux is the way to go! Here are some examples of EasyTurf, a quality artificial lawn alternative.
