Repurpose Your Old Landscaping Material!

A customer of ours had a lot of old material laying around that he didn’t know what to do with. Instead of giving it away we suggested repurposing it! With the eye of our partner/designer, Carlos Montano, and the skilled craftsmanship of our crews, we were able to create a beautiful and timeless natural stone seating wall! It gave the patio and yard a lot of character, provided additional seating for their guests and was a great economical choice for them! Before you throw away old landscaping materials, consider different ways to repurpose it! As always, we are here to help you with that process. Give us a call today and schedule your free landscaping consultation!

Incorporating A Variety Of Textures And Colors In Your Landscape Projects

landscape-design-st-charles-il

 

When designing your landscape project, it is important to maintain a wide variety of textures, colors, sizes and shapes in both your hardscape and softscape material. This creates a well-planned and eye-catching look that maintains interest. In the picture above, we have chosen to incorporate neutral toned brick pavers for the walkway and steps, with a mix of natural stone for accent pieces and additional stepping stones. The chosen plant material consists of a wide variety of textures, heights, shapes and colors with various blooming seasons. This creates a sense of fullness, warmth and diversity in the surrounding flower beds. To get the most out of your landscape project, it is important to consult with a professional landscape designer. Give us a call today, and schedule your free consultation!

Solve Drainage Issues Creatively!

landscape-design-burr-ridge-il

Do you have a drainage issue along your property line? Grading your property and installing drains with underground piping can often solve the issue, but sometimes the surrounding ground can remain constantly damp and muddy even with these measures in place. In drainage situations this severe, we recommend installing a dry creek bed. With dry creek beds, the runoff water is directed away from your property and the surrounding ground is covered in stone preventing muddy areas from forming. Dry creek beds can easily be incorporated with your existing or future flower beds and landscaping. Want to find out if this might be the solution for you? Give us a call and we’ll schedule you a free consultation!

Coordinating Your Hardscape Material With Your Home’s Stonework

landscape-design-hinsdale-il

When choosing your hardscape material, it is important to keep your home’s existing stonework in mind. While an exact match would be overdone, a choice within the same color and texture family creates fluidity between the home and landscape. For example, a natural stone path and set of steps compliments the stone walls of the home pictured here. Working with professionals in the industry is the best way to ensure proper material selection for your hardscape projects. Call us today for a free consultation and see what materials are available for you!

Design Your Backyard With Separate Spaces That Work For You!

landscape-design-downers-grove-il

When it comes to designing your backyard, you should think of having separate spaces as you would in your home. Think of what activities you would like do ahead of time, then design your yard accordingly. For example, you might have on area for cooking, one for seated dining, one for sitting around an outdoor fireplace/firepit, one for lounging with a book or soaking in the sun and one for enjoying the variety of plants in your garden. You may even have a separate area for a vegetable garden or for the kids to play. Every family’s needs are different, so working with a designer who specializes in unique and individualized designs is important. If you’re interested in speaking with someone about a design that would work for you, give us a call and we’ll schedule you a free consultation.
