Sunbathing on the patio

Here’s an awesome example of how a landscaper can take a fine yard and turn it into something incredible. The first image here is the yard we started with.

As you can see, the redesign of this backyard not only made it a more practical space to entertain and relax in, but the clean lines of the patio make the area feel easily twice as large.

We were able to help the homeowner keep their personal style in the look of the space, and now this backyard can be shared even better with friends and family.

If you want to get a lot more out of your yard, or are just sick of that cookie cutter builder basic landscaping, give us a call and we can give you something you’ll love.

Beautiful crocosmia for color

Tired of your yard looking drab in the heat of summer? Wishing your garden had more than browns and (hopefully) a few different green tones when the rains finally clear up and we can finally enjoy the sunshine?

Well, look no further than our good friend Crocosmia!

This colorful family of plants brings a wide variety of summer blooming, warm toned flowers with nice sharp lines. They’re pretty easygoing and can be utilized in a number of great spots in a planter bed or garden, whether they’re the star of the show or part of a supporting cast.

Once they are established, they are fairly drought resistant, and they even attract butterflies and hummingbirds, which is why you’ve probably seen multiple varieties of them all over town. 

If you’ve been convinced to try out the versatile and diverse family of beautiful flowers, give us a call and we can provide some locally sourced crocosmia to brighten up your summer!

Landscaping season in full swing!

Is your yard looking a little drab now that the sun is finally out? Plants can bring some color and vitality to any space. Whether you are looking for a large tree to bring shade and interest to your back yard, or just a little shrubbery to fill out that garden bed space– we can select the best local plants that will thrive where we plant them.

What happens if something we plant dies? Obviously when you work with plant material, sometimes seemingly healthy plants don’t make it. But when you do your project with J’s Custom Landscaping, not only can you be sure that our initial plan will be expertly crafted to fit your project and your yard, the plants we bring in are typically covered by a warranty policy designed to catch those unexpected die-outs, which usually happen in the first year.

Our crews are out at job sites all over the Vancouver and Portland area every day planting trees, laying sod, mowing grass, and placing pavers. If you have a landscaping project big or small, whether that’s a major cleanup or just getting signed up for a reliable, professional, lawn care service, give us a call at 360-521-1479, and our office staff can set you up for a free consultation.

Happy Holidays from J’s Custom Landscaping!

The Vancouver and Portland area is currently weathering a winter storm! Be safe and try to keep warm– we’re staying busy shoveling sidewalks and fighting the ice right now.

Jay’s kids must have seen one of our ice crews working, because they sent us this very accurate portrait.
