We wanted a good place to share great projects and some of our expertise with our clients and the world at large, so when we put this new site together, it was important to us to include an awesome blog.
I hope you’ll take a moment to check out some of our posts. We can always be reached through the contact info at the bottom of the page, feel free to give us a call with any questions.
We help manage snow and ice for a wide variety of commercial clients. If your business isn’t contracted with a reputable company to help treat for ice, shovel walks, or plow parking lots, give us a call! Our ice melt crews start at about midnight during winter events– give yourself some peace of mind knowing that your employees and customers will be able to safely access your facility.
If you’re looking to wrap up some last touches to get that landscape cleaned up for the year, whether it’s hydroseeding your large commercial space or just getting those fall leaves picked up, give us a call. Our calendar for winter construction work is filling up fast, and the last weeks to do seeding and planting is fast approaching.
Got a project in mind for the new year, or spring season? A winter consultation to get your project going means we can help iron out details and work up a perfect plan to make your vision a reality.
Retaining walls are one of our our most frequent requests. Retaining wall projects are as diverse as it gets in landscaping. Many contractors and commercial clients request retaining walls to help create distinction between areas of their landscaping, or solve drainage and grading issues. However, the potential applications of a retaining wall extend far beyond these common purposes. A retaining wall has the ability to transform a backyard into an outdoor living space, and can be built to fit any style or color palette.
From the purely practical to the distinctly decorative, retaining walls can accomplish so much for any yard. Here are a few shots of retaining wall projects we’ve done, and a little bit of background into the goals of the projects.
Retaining wall projects can accomplish so much for any yard.
This is a great example of a retaining wall that accomplishes a practical goal: this customer wanted us to develop their yard into a level space for an outdoor entertainment area, with a retaining wall that would also serve as additional seating. The pathway leading to the patio area also provided easier access from the driveway down to the back yard.
This project was actually developed to create a lower maintenance yard. Removing the grass here didn’t have to detract from the attractiveness of the front yard, and with the plantings of low maintenance shrubs and easy to care for perennials, the space actually looks very clean and contemporary. Accessing and caring for their sloped yard was difficult for this client, so we used these small retaining walls to help level things out and make the space pop.
Commercial clients need retaining walls too. This was one part of over 775 feet of walls created to help flatten lots for houses in a new subdivision. These are large blocks, 8″ tall and 18″ wide– the same blocks we use on engineered retaining walls that reach over 4 feet tall.
