Perhaps the reason we love "before and after" pictures so much is that it gives insight into the tremendous effort that went into a project!
Here are a few of our favorite transformations:
Ready or not, Autumn is upon us! As the weather cools down and we begin to see some long-anticipated rain, be sure to take careful steps so that your landscape stays healthy throughout winter. Grasses and shrubbery continue growing until the first freeze (middle of October-November, depending on where you live), so don't neglect their care just because of sweater weather!
Completing this landscape was especially rewarding for our team. Not only was the final result gorgeous, but to achieve a low-maintenance, natural design, our team implemented several sustainable practices. This article briefly looks at each eco-friendly method completed in the details of this project.
As we dive into autumn, the cooler temperatures and earlier sunsets mean the routine welcome of fuzzy sweaters, cozy movie nights, and hot apple cider. For most of October, though, this cooler weather is paired with gorgeous sunny days, where the air is crisp and clean. Thankfully, if you're like me and not quite ready to lock yourself inside all weekend, there are still plenty of things you can do outdoors unique to these fall months.
As we enter into summer and the weather begins to heat up, it is essential to keep your yard well-saturated. While it may be tempting to water your lovely landscape as much as possible, too much moisture can be detrimental to both your lawn and the environment.
Here are several sustainable ways to efficiently keep your yard watered throughout these dry months:
Considering water features are a gorgeous addition to any landscape, the environmentally safe benefits are simply cherries on top. Whether you are improving your yard design and considering a water feature or simply creating a more eco-friendly space, a water feature is a beautiful addition. Here are just some of the ways this addition creates a more sustainable environment.
