Landscaping doesn’t have to be restricted to hardscapes and plantings. When you add a water feature, you open up your yard to much larger opportunities for visual impact. A water feature such as a pond invites many interesting visitors, like birds, dragonflies, frogs, and other wildlife, as well as offers a tranquil setting in which to relax and enjoy. But before you start digging, make sure you’re ready. Water features can take time, energy, and a healthy budget to install. This post will help you decide if a water feature is right for your home.

Wikipedia defines aquascaping as "the craft of arranging aquatic plants, as well as rocks, stones, cavework, or driftwood, in an aesthetically pleasing manner..."

Deck-be-gone! This customer came to us and informed us that they were sick of their deck and it was all torn out. They needed a raised paver patio. Of course we thought that was a great idea and we started designing and planning right away. When the plans were complete, we had a raised patio using Techo-Bloc's Blu 60. Multiple sets of Rosetta steps leading to the pool, a waterfall, and low voltage landscape lighting.
Ahhh Spring... I love this time of year. The frost is coming out of the ground, the sun is warmer, the days are longer, the bulbs are poking their heads out, and the manufacturers are releasing their new catalogs. I always look forward to the unveiling of the new latest and greatest that these guys come out with.
