Clear Ridge Event Center had its beginnings as an elementary school. When the owners began creating an the school-turned-events center, they wanted to create someplace special for the weddings that they hoped to attract. So when they turned to Tussey Landscaping for a design and build, our team knew they had to create something one of a kind special.
The design centered around a Pavilion, which would be the focal point of the project. But there had to be more. The sound of running water, the textures of stone underfoot, the fragrance and colors of tasteful landscape; all these were incorporated into the design.
The final project hit the mark; a photograph destination for capturing the moments and event that shape a lifetime!

Our clients of today' project wanted to create their own little backyard retreat. With a dream and a patch of grass, they contacted Tussey Landscaping to help bring their backyard to life
Despite the constant weather related setbacks, our crew doggedly continued, and the project continued to take shape. As the patio, steps, and walkway took shape around the water feature, the vision of a backyard became traceable through the mud and chaos of construction.
The new water feature, muddy but running, encouraged everyone that we were progressing towards the Goal.
In progressing stages, the patio, steps, and walkways came together. For the walkways, we used a small Techo bloc paver called Antika. This small, random sized paver created an aged "cobblestone" look, while still giving a smooth walking surface. Black Hills natural stone slabs were used to continue the natural look of this landscape.
Thankfully, nearing the end of the project, the rain finally stopped. Our crew planted a mix of shade plants around the tree and water feature. After all the planting was completed and mulch was put down in all flower bed areas, the full beauty of this area became apparent. The sight and sound of water incorporated with the calming aesthetics of landscape create the atmosphere of relaxation for which the patio was created.
After all construction work was completed, the crew regraded the lawn, patching up all areas disturbed by construction; hydroseeding a new lawn behind us as we left. the final day of cleanup was dusty! Nobody complained though, for everyone was relieved just to be free of the mud.
The final project was nothing short of stunning. Check out our slideshow of the completed project.

These clients reached out to Tussey for help with their aging koi pond. built over a decade ago, their small water feature was in need of extensive troubleshooting. Unfortunately, It was not effectively constructed, and had chronic operating problems. Over the years numerous "fixes" had left this pond struggling. It was time for our construction crew to do some pond work!
Rather than attempt more corrective measure on the pond, our crew decided it would be best to start over. It was agreed to remove the entire pond and stream system and install our 7'x10' Simplicity Series Pond Kit.
We also added an eight foot stream to the pond kit. Our team of builders knew that a correctly constructed stream and waterfalls, would greatly enhance the beauty of this water feature.
The old pond system had a complicated plumbing system that was difficult to service and maintain. The lighting system had exposed fixtures and wires running everywhere in and around the pond, and many of the fixtures were no longer working well. The improved skimmer and pump hook up system of the simplicity series pond makes the pump much more accessible. Easy to install Low voltage LED lighting would be installed to transform the night time views of this pond.
There was a few challenges to be overcome for this pond construction. A narrow gate was an obstacle that almost barred the use of equipment from the project. Luckily, our machine was able to literally squeeze in. Layers of older liner and underlayment from previous ponds, along with unstable soil conditions made it necessary for our crew to fill in and compact the entire area before they could begin sculpting the new pond. However, these difficulties were dealt with, and soon a new pond was on the way!
Our finished project completely transformed this backyard. The new Simplicity Series pond features improved circulation and filtration; both will improve water clarity and ecological health in this pond. The new skimmer box allows the pump to be easily accessed for maintenance, and the skimmer basket easily removes floating debris from the water flow. The carefully disguised biofalls provides extra filtration. Our Underwater Low Voltage lights are carefully hidden among the rocks, illuminating the pond with their effects.
