Before and after pictures tell the story of what happens when a master landscaper meets a yard in desperate need of a new beginning. We are thrilled with the recently completed landscaping by Homescapes Landscaping. The makeover could qualify to be featured in a Better Homes and Gardens magazine. During the day, the landscaping is eye candy from any angle. As soon as night falls, it is a sparkling jewel with the new LED lights Brad installed to replace the old non-LED lighting.
At our first meeting, Brad talked with us about what we wanted and did not want. Subsequently, he presented a plan that incorporated our desires and his vast knowledge of plants and landscaping. We agreed on the plan and the price, making a few minor adjustments as it progressed to completion.
Brad began our project by removing all of the old landscaping except for one much-loved River Birch tree. He then removed all of the old landscape lighting. He also built a retaining wall around the River Birch to prevent further erosion of the soil and to create a bed for new plants. He also installed two additional sprinklers. Next, Brad brought in the plants and 12 handsome boulders. The top soil he chose was rich and nurturing to the new plants and he topped it all off with a high grade of mulch.
Brad incorporated a variety of textures and colors into the landscape. We have several greens - dark forest greens, gray-greens, typical greens - reds, pinks and purples along with a brilliant display of yellow flowers. Anchoring the overall look of trees and shrubs is the rich texture and color of a dozen beautiful boulders. While installing the landscaping, Brad also managed to turn a lingering drainage problem near our front porch into a creative work of art by constructing a small creek rock bed to drain rain water away from the sidewalk. All together, he incorporated seven new trees that will grow to varying heights and 91 bushes (some evergreens, some flowering, and some changing colors from one season to another) into our landscape. Now, a few months after planting in mid-March, everything is living and thriving – new leaves, new flowers, new life. He can do it all.
If you want to increase the curb appeal of your home and/or its value and enjoy the beauty of your yard along with receiving rave reviews from family, friends and neighbors, we highly recommend to you Homescapes Landscaping.
