Suburban Dream

A suburban home becomes the most interesting one on the street with full front and backyard makeovers.

The Vision & Design

Beginning with a blank slate.

With no existing landscape, this suburban home was a blank slate. In the front, our client was looking to make a strong first impression with something interesting and engaging — yet hospitable.

In the back, they were looking for something more functional and orderly, but still warm and inviting. A new patio with pathways and plantings fit the bill.

Key Design Features

Bringing nature home.

Entranceway with sunset

Extensive Garden With Weathered Boulders

Interesting plantings along with trees, boulders and landscape lighting make this garden memorable.


Natural Stone Overlay on Front Porch

Natural stone sourced from local quarries elevate the front entrance of the home.


Large Back Patio With Path & Entry

Interlocking brick add visual interest and longevity to the backyard hardscape.

The Results

Ending with beautiful, safe and functional.

The house is the most interesting one on the street and has lots for the eye to look at while maintaining safe and functional entry. The backyard has lots of room and is a warm and comfortable area to entertain by day or by night!


 “Dan and his team have done multiple projects for me over the last several years and always the product and outcome are even better than expected... and I have high expectations for the work done! Have recently had some exciting projects completed and the final look is professional, unique, eye-catching, but not over the top. It is always a pleasure to have a craftsman that stands behind his product and service!”

— Wade, Homeowner
