Fountains – Water Soothes The Soul

71% of the earth is covered with water. Why not bring some into your backyard. Water features can take the form of a rippling stream, a peaceful koi pond or a flower pot with water bubbling over the sides. No matter what style you choose, water is always a wonderful element in your landscape.



Fences – Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

The old saying that good fences make good neighbors may be true. Fences are a simple choice for adding privacy but they also can create a beautiful backdrop for blooming plants. They also provide security and keep pets from running away.




Lighting – Get Your Glow On

Why let the party end when the sun goes down? Outdoor light provides atmosphere, safety and security to your backyard landscape. With today’s LED bulb solutions, the energy savings can really add up.
