This landscape project was installed at a new home in Altoona PA. So when we showed up, there was virtually nothing. Just a brand new home. We had a clean slate. But... the property was large, and the homeowners had many ideas, beyond what their current budget supported. So, no problem, we simply worked together to create the design that they envisioned, and once the design was created and approved, we chose what elements to complete first, and what to hold off for future phases of the project. In this case, we decided to do the front of the home first, which included the front walkway with Techo-Bloc Blu 60 mm pavers, landscaping and trees, landscape lighting, and the water feature facing the driveway, greeting all who arrived at the home with a spectacular view.
Below are some BEFORE and AFTER images of the front, which we completed in Phase 1 of the project.
Above you can see what was accomplished in the Front Yard Phase of the project. The following summer we came back to install the first half of the backyard phase. Which included natural flagstone walkways, natural stone steps, some drainage work, and landscaping. Below are photo galleries of the before and after on that.
The next summer, (3rd time we were back) The 3rd and final phase consisted of a large entertaining patio and firepit, kind of set away from the rest of the backyard. Creating a destination point. Also included in this phase was more flagstone walkways and natural stone steps leading to the basement doors of the home. All of it was surrounded by landscaping and LED landscape lighting for nighttime enjoyment and beauty.
That completes this full property landscape design. This achieved many goals for this home. It beautified the front and gave a welcoming and inviting appearance. Next it provided a large entertaining area in the backyard and completed a full outdoor living space. Below you can watch the full project showcase video of this entire project happening.

This project had a thick overgrown section of brush and small saplings along the front yard. It kind of created an unkempt look, and the homeowners wanted to remove it and replace it with a nice landscape bed with mountain boulders embedded throughout the landscape, along with a barrier of yew bushes to create some privacy from the hiking trail just on the other side of their property line. Below are photos of what the property looked like upon our arrival.

This project started out as a home in Roaring Spring PA with virtually no landscaping, no patio, no nothing. We were contacted to design an outdoor living space for the backyard initially. There was some back and forth in the design process between Dave, the designer for this project, and the homeowners regarding how 'rustic' or how 'modern' to create this backyard project. They both liked both looks, so during the design process they arrived at a compromise that incorporated clean lines of a modern look, but still used natural stone, natural mountain boulders, which all assisted in merging the modern, clean look with the natural rustic textures of natural stone products. Below is a fly through video of the first draft of the 3D Design.
