From Sloping Lawn to a Backyard Oasis

Our formerly un-useable backyard was transformed last fall into an oasis of plantings and patios. We can now entertain guests in multiple areas and enjoy the sounds of nature and of soothing running water while doing so. To see more photos of the transformation, please visit the link below.

      While I am not comfortable posting the amount of money spent on this project, I will tell you that costs would depend on the demographic area in which you reside and the type of firm that you hire to do the work.
