Some 'Before' & 'Afters' and Front Lawn Removals
|BEFORE - Lawn and unused space|
|A new courtyard entry gives this home more livable space and more room for entertaining with a little privacy and no more watering and mowing!|
|AFTER: Nice steel trowel concrete fire pit with beautiful glass toppings for that after dinner get together.|
|BEFORE: We needed a retaining wall for the grade changes but who says it needed to be ugly and useless.|
|AFTER - Pizza oven, counter space and lots of storage.|
|BEFORE: These homeowners wanted more adult entertaining areas.|
AFTER - No more lawn and a very nice place for an adult dinner party! Bring on the pizza!
|AFTER - No more lawn, privacy for the master bedroom, pizza for dinner, and a warm fire after dinner!|
|AFTER-We reduced the lawn size here but kept some for the new baby that was on the way!|
|BEFORE - nothing existing to say 'Modern & sleek interior' of the home.|
AFTER - No more unnecessary watering and mowing here and the house tells you there is some modern updating going on here.
AFTER- The dymondia ground cover has filled in nicely in less than a year.
|BEFORE (Deer Country) Deer resistant plantings are needed here.|
|AFTER-This lawn area was a 'no mow' grass that takes less water and can be mowed if they choose.|
|AFTER - The deer resistant plantings are growing in nicely.|
|BEFORE-Their lawn suffered from lack of water & sun from large tree root competition.|
|AFTER - Low water use plantings used here with strong root systems that can compete with the existing tree roots.|
|BEFORE: Time to get rid of this large water thirsty lawn for a dry usable space and add some privacy to the front of the home from the street.|
|AFTER (Did I mention Deer Country here also?)|
