CENTERVILLE, OHIO

About the Project

These are some before and after pictures of a landscape design and installation and hardscape maintenance project we serviced. The customer was looking to move out of the house in the near future but admitted that the landscape was looking a bit overgrown. No maintenance had been done on the existing landscape in quite some time, so it was entirely necessary to start from scratch.

We started by completely removing all of the existing plant material in the front and side yard, except for the crab apple tree by the front patio. We also trimmed up and thinned out all of the existing trees on the property. The new flower beds were formed and dug out. We built up the beds with about 6” of topsoil all around the house. Low maintenance shrubs and perennials were installed throughout the flower beds. By request of the customer, we transplanted some of the existing perennials into the new design. New mulch was then spread throughout all of the flower beds.

The existing brick patio and walkway had been installed 26 years ago. Over time it had become uneven, wavy, and even hazardous in certain areas. The customer wanted to keep the existing brick, so we power washed the patio and walkway, pulled up each brick in a section at a time, cleaned them, re-leveled the areas with sand, reset each brick, and installed edging along the outside of patio and both sides of walkway to hold all of the brick tightly in place.

The customer was very pleased with how the new installation and patio turned out. The newly landscaped beds made the house look updated and also added curb appeal. It was also the first time the entire house could be seen.

"I am blessed with a house on one floor, great neighbors and a great location, but my landscaping was very overgrown and I was looking at a lot of work to get an updated house with lots of curb appeal. I made a few changes—new windows, new back patio, a darling playhouse/storage shed—but it was Tim and his crew who brought the whole look together.

I had been thinking I would get these projects done to enjoy a few years before simplifying and downsizing. After seeing the results, I just may have to stay here! Thank you, Tim, for giving me back my house."
