Because of years of neglect, as well as two large dogs, our yard looked awful! There were large patches of dry dirt where grass should have been which contributed to an annoying amount of dust and dirt entering the house. There was no landscaping whatsoever except for the weeds that I kept at bay through mowing. Years of erosion had eaten away the side yard leaving a large gully that left it impossible to mow. And water pooled in the driveway bringing with it inches of mud every time it rained. I called Kevin and asked him to do something! I gave him free rein to do as he pleased; my only request was that the yard be low maintenance and dog friendly (no sharp-edged rocks). Kevin installed a french drain which, aside from being practically invisible, rectified the pooling water in the driveway. He partially rocked the side yard with small boulders (to act as a water diversion), river rock (to fill in the erosion which had already taken place), and pretty water garden plants for aesthetics. My front yard is a showcase of river rock with a variety of indigenous plants specific to the sun/shade lighting of the yard. After only three weeks all of the plants have acclimated and are showing signs of new growth. Kevin also fertilized and planted grass seed which has rooted and grown. I now have a beautiful carpet of green lawn. However, the focal point of the yard, as well as my pride and joy, is a beautiful Japanese Maple tree that graces the walkway leading to the front door. I am so happy with Kevin’s work! Kevin returned today to check on everything and to make sure all was happy and healthy.
