We started landscaping in 2010. After working a few summers part time landscaping with my uncle Chris Merrill I decided to post a Craigslist ad for landscaping. Sure enough the calls started. I enlisted the help of some of my underemployed college friends and so it began.
We've done it all from cut brush to manicure lawns, install pavers to carefully transplant hybrid plant varieties.
Looking back on 2016, we're fortunate to say that nearly all of our landscape work was design-build. We're often asked to renovate a space that serves little to no purpose to a homeowner or address problem areas a homeowner can't remedy on their own. Once we've had the opportunity to discuss the potential and the client's specific tastes and needs we share our ideas often introducing ideas no one else had.
Our first goal to any design is minimal upkeep. Far too often we see landscapes installed that require full time profession upkeep and that simply isn't sustainable.
Second is water use. If you need to take out a second mortgage to pay your irrigation bill you installed the wrong landscape.
And finally YOU; what do you want? What do you like? What inspires you? What will get you outside?
Let us build you a landscape that invites you and your guets to sit outside or have your coffee on the patio. Something functional and eye catching that will last long after the first season.
