Careful planning and execution are at the heart of each project we undertake. This is a win-win for homeowners because our goal is to capture and create the vision of the customer while staying well within the confines of the budget.

 

The first step is to visualize the wishes of the client and to gather details about family usage patterns, property features and boundaries, existing plants, and environmental conditions.

 

Using a set of high tech tools such as the aerial map of the property shown below, we are able to develop a conceptual design of the project. (image above right) The design allows the homeowner to make any changes before the fact rather than after and it also serves as a working model for the installation crew.

This project calls for installation of a patio including a raised level. The patio is constructed of Yankee Cobbler block which is pictured below.

In spring of 2013 a homeowner asked us to solve a couple of problems in her front yard.

The homeowner wanted to dress up her front porch with shrubs and install an elegant walkway. Guests and family members were avoiding the front entrance due to poor walkway design.

She wanted to enjoy her front porch and felt that visitors should be attracted to her front entrance. The old walkway was uninviting, particularly in wet weather.

Our task was to reclaim her front porch and create a walkway that people would be drawn to.

We used a special software program  to get an aerial view of the entire property. This is a great way to gain the total perspective of the surrounding neighborhood.

You can see the relationship to other nearby properties as well as the distance from the street. It’s an excellent way to visualize the most desirable traffic pattern for the new walkway.

After consultations with the homeowner we developed a planting design along with the dimensions for the new walkway.

Having the design in blueprint form is another way to see the possibilities and to avoid any costly misunderstandings.

 

 

 

With a solid plan in place and all the material at the ready we begin the excavation. Unusable material and soil are taken off-site and replaced with rich loam for the planting bed and compacted stone for the walkway.

This project is taking shape in September of 2013. The customer wants a raised patio installed in the backyard. As you can see from this before photo, the end result will offer privacy and a comfortable setting for dining.

The aerial view also shows the privacy aspect. What a perfect setting for a patio!
