Project Overview

Gainesville, Florida | 3+ Years

When we phase projects for our clients, often it’s because once they have achieved a desirable landscape in one area of their property, it has the effect of making the other elements of their lawn stand out – in the wrong way. 

In this case, our client first engaged us to help with their backyard landscaping. Once that was completed, they again called on us to help with their front yard landscape. We next came on board to revitalize their pool deck, and we are now in the planning stages for their outdoor kitchen.

Client Needs

Phase 1

The client’s property was plagued by wildlife damaging the landscape, tall shrubs blocking their backyard’s nature views, and the area overgrown with weeds, vines, and stunted trees. Further, the patio was worn and falling apart. The client wanted a separate entertaining area adjacent to her pool deck, and additional irrigation was needed in the backyard to accommodate the new design.  

Phase 2

Tree stumps remained from fallen trees and were an eyesore for our client. They also wanted the yard’s jasmine ground cover replaced with a different plant. Meanwhile, the flower bed running along the house’s perimeter did not complement it well, and the overall landscape design was randomly clustered.  

Phase 3

We focused on the client’s pool deck, which was old and dated. The client wanted the pool deck to match the patio installed during phase 1 to give the entire landscape design a cohesive look.

Design & Planning

Our design team got to work ideating around how to solve our client’s landscape. We broke the project up into 3 phases, each focusing on a different area. Phase 1 of this project focused on the backyard landscape and the client’s two patios, including lighting. Phase 2 focused on the front yard landscape, while phase 3 tackled the pool deck.


Installation for the client included landscaping, hardscaping, lighting, and irrigation, as well as ongoing maintenance services.
