What are your best home or garden tips for this season?
Plan the project with a professional designer to avoid pitfalls to get a jump on the infrastructure like utilities and drain lines…as far as the lawn maintenance you should put out plenty of pre-emergent and proper fertilizer in the early spring.
What are your featured items this season?
Fire features like fireplaces fire pits and gas fire bowls are the bestselling accents with the biggest impact on the outdoor design.
What are your home or garden pet peeves?
I really don’t like to see planting beds overcrowded or plants that have been placed in the wrong spot,….. that they may need constant trimming. My favorite landscape design is one that allows the plants to grow to their natural size and beauty….so choose wisely.
What is the strangest client request you've ever received?
To add a steel shipping container at the base of a hill so they didn’t have to use as much back-fill to extend their yard.
What is your favorite part about the home show?
Seeing our past customers from years ago and hearing their stories of how they have used and enjoyed our products.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
Our experienced, expert designers offer fabulous 3D designs to our customers, where you can actually visualize your backyard dreams come to life...it is wonderful to see the excitement on our customer's faces!
