Native Oasis

Having clients that value sustainability, natives and wildlife is what we live for!  Part of a massive project, this project is still in the works.  Phase 1 included the front natural stone retaining walls, a long sweeping natural stone wall in back to make a large, flat lawn area, front landscape, back landscape, native pollinator septic tank cover garden, planting 80+ native and evergreen trees plus deer fencing in the fall, and many bed islands to cover electric boxes, flank the entry, and cover a hard to mow hill.  Phase 2 includes an outdoor living space complete with an outdoor kitchen, fish pond with water feature integrated into the new paver patio, natural stone sitting and retaining walls, a fireplace, natural stone steps, and more landscaping! Phase 3 is abundant with native plants and trees including 100 native tree whips and 6000 prairie grasses, groundcovers and perennials! In phase 4 a circular driveway, walkway pavers to match the back patio pavers, a stepping stone path through the landscaped circle and boulders were installed. Lots of native plants, spring bulbs and trees were added as well. This is going to be quite the native oasis! We love clients who love trees and nature.
