Our latest landscape tour is the perfect one to kick off June and summer! Mr. and Mrs. T called Village Green about some ideas and solutions for their backyard. They had finished installing a beautiful pool and that plus their arbor and stunning patterned concrete their back patio was nearly summer ready. The only problem […]
As I said in a recent quick tip, your lawn needs three things to be healthy. Sun, water, and food (fertilizer.) Mr. H unfortunately didn’t have enough sun in his backyard because of his large trees and came to us for a solution. Mr. H is a model customer in that he had very specific requests for this […]
One of my favorite things about landscape projects is finding creative ways to solve our customer’s problems. Take this project. Ms. N has a large backyard with a swimming pool which is perfect for her and her dogs enjoy. The only problem. Mud. And lots of it. The simple solution. Artificial turf and some well-selected […]
