The front entrance to this home had a unique design that highlighted the focal point in this design.

The flower beds where designed on each side of the walk entrance  from the driveway to add interest to the wide walk to the front door.

Re-Designed Subdivision Entrance
Douglasville, GA

This a subdivision entrance in Douglasville, Ga. that I redesigned.  The columns were originally built at different heights for no reason.  It was that way for several years before the HOA decided to have it all redesigned and new construction. Some column height had to be lowered and some added on with flag stone lower wall added.  The old fence was white plastic.  New wrought fence was added for the finished look that you can in the above pictures.

Every Design Is Unique
For The Client's Location, Needs And Wants

Whether It's For Homeowners Or Landscape Contractors.

Before landscape construction, this front yard was completely flat. Sod was removed from the site and soil was added to contour the yard giving it a hold new look and better curb appeal.

Needless to say, the biggest benefit that was realized on each finished project was Increased Property Value, Pure Beauty And Great Family enjoyment.

"Here's a Costly Mistake You MUST Avoid"

Most Homeowners believe that in order to raise the net value of their homes that you need to add a new deck, redesign the Kitchen and Bathroom or refinish the basement.

Nothing could be further from the truth... Although adding these improvements can increase the value of some homes, this can be a very expensive route to take. You may even lose money! The Bathroom redesign alone can cost you up to $35,000 and that's on the low end.

Here's something crucial you should know:

When your visitors, family, friends or even new home buyers visit your home, what is the first thing they see first?

Your landscape...

How does your current landscape look?

Are you embarrassed when people show up to your front door? Does the outside of your home need a facelift? Whether you know it or not, the outside home landscape reveals everything about you.

This brick sidewalk has the same colors as the house brick which helps to tie the house into the rest of the landscape.
The curves planting areas are edged with a stone edging. Notice the shrub bed continues cross the sidewalk.
Instead of using mulch around the shrubs,  Asian Jasmine was used to lower the yearly maintenance cost.

Victorian Home

This home was built in the 1800"s.  The new owner of the home wanted the landscaping restored to a Victorian design and the plant material list from landscape books of the period.  I designed the gazebo with the roof style that matched the top of the porch portion that you see on the right side of the picture.

This yard was designed in 1979 and this picture was taken in 2009.

Concrete Wall Block System And Pavers

This backyard had a very small concrete patio and timber retaining walls close to the house that was all removed.
The large hill was excavated to allow a three tier wall block retaining system to be installed.
This family now enjoys a beautiful large patio for entertaining and a better view from inside the house.  Also, wide steps allows a better access to the upper yard.

Stone Walls and Timber Construction

A contractor cut into the hill  to expose the lower elevation of this home.  At that time no one in the area or the homeowner knew what to do with the mess they had created.

I designed the retaining wall system. Patio and the planting design as you will see below.

The Picture on The Left Below. Stone Retaining walls on the Lower to continue the Stone On The Lower Of The House.  The Upper Retaining Walls are 6 x 6" Pressured Treated Timbers.

The Picture on The Right Below shows the finished Landscaped backyard over looking a private lake.  It's a beautiful view from inside the house on both the main living area on upper level and the lower master suite.

Condo Landscape Design

Small spaces landscaping which is typical for most Condo developments.  This Condo area has a Landscape Maintenance company that does all of the mowing  in the development.  The individual condo owner is responsible for the front their landscape area.   When designing small landscape areas,  the ultimate size of the plants that you choose must remain small in nature.  The scale of the area dictates
small.  The original plants installed by the builder were all relocated to the back of the property because they were going to become much too large for the small area.

The tree that you see in the above picture was planted by the builder in front of every condo unit.  They are Oak trees.  These trees will soon become way too large in the future.  I have told this Condo HOA committee that they will need to remove the tree within the next few years. The trees look great now but big problems are on the horizon.

This patio design includes a flagstone patio with a raised stone planter and fountain.  A wood fence with a pink Camellia is on a trellis.  Look at the special designed wrought iron decorate trellis that surround the air conditioner units.
This is a great way to hide the unsightly A/C units.

This trellis has Confederate Jasmine climbing on it.  It has now completely covered the trellis.  The jasmine blooms with a white flower.

Improve The Living Environment 

Inside Your Home  with indoor Plants

Hamstra Inside Landscape

The roof of this entire home was removed and replaced with a new gravel roof.  At the same time, a Pella  Skylight System was installed down through the center of the main living area of the home.  The homeowner wanted the house to have a Florida Feel and Look.  After having the largest interior plant company in Chicago designed this interior landscape.  The owner was not happy with their design.  He called me to see if I would consider designing a plan.  I said yes and a design was  completed .  In the picture above, you see only a portion of this home's living space where the plants where installed.  The plantings included 5 large tropical trees (15'+), many hanging baskets and lots of small planter sitting on the floor.  The plants filled 3/4th of a semi-truck. 

A Completed Landscape Plan

This is a  large residential property with a new home that backed up to a private lake.  In my landscape designs, I like to tie the plantings on one side of the driveway to the opposite side so that the total front yard is unified. You can see from the above drawing that shrub bed lines continue from the left side of the driveway to the right side.

The planting area shapes should repeat the same angles so the different areas fit together like a puzzle. This gives a flow pattern through the yard to enhance the curb appeal while directing your eye toward the front door.

The back of the house required three retaining walls adjacent to house because the house was sited on a small hill. A walk was designed from the driveway to a lower patio with a upper deck.  The walk continued down to the lake where a Gazebo was designed surrounding with beautiful planting near the lake.
