Hello Lawrence

Thanks for your creative design for our front yard and patio area in the back.
The installation is complete and we are extremely happy the way everything turned out thanks to you.

I have enjoyed working with you while design my front Yard. Thanks for all of your Help.  I was wondering it you could recommend someone to help me design a front porch for my home.  Thanks

I just received a letter from a former client of mind his name is Wilbur Hamstra. He lives in Wheatfield, IN.

I started designing his residence's landscape design in 1975.  The first design included a lake west of the house along with land contours to totally change the flat yard into a beautiful setting for the lake and the plantings to come later. The contours were continues around the existing. 

I continued for nine years to design and install additional areas of his property until the landscape project included 6 1/2 acres and a large interior planting inside the  home

For 38 years this property has been fully maintained and added to and now it is called Hamstra Estate & Garden. 

Several of the pictures above where taken during different stages of it's landscape development.

It was featured in a article in the Chicagoland Gardening Magazine October issue.  The article was written by Deb Terrill.  The article was entitled "Eden In A Cornfield".  The Hamstra Estate & Garden allows many weddings each year and  local photography companies are using the beautiful grounds for their photo shoots.   This property is the highlight of my Landscape Design Career.

Hello Lawrence

Hi Lawrence,

Habitat And Butterfly Garden

Wonderful, the committee will be very pleased and happy.
The project will start in Spring 2012, I will keep you posted.
I am so grateful for your beautiful design. Thank you and I will keep in touch.


Lawrence did a very professional and thorough job.  We needed a comprehensive Landscape Design and he delivered quickly and at a reasonable price.  Lawrence took time to seek our plant and design preferences and they were incorporated nicely into his plan.
Another major plus is that he was willing to meet after business hours and he was always on time.  I would highly recommend Lawrence to anyone seeking a Landscape Design plan.

Dear Lawrence

2nd Job For This Client

Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did in designing, preparing and shaping our new Lawn. It looks beautiful! Your thought, expertise, creativity and skill have created a yard that we are e very proud of. Our yard is really a quality piece of work. Unfortunately, much of the preparation, the hard work and the infrastructure that you completed can't be seen by passersby. However, the beautiful walls you built, along with the islands you created an designed, really add to the eye appeal of our home. And the pathway and ground cover you installed on the side yard is an extra plus. Finally, working with you was a pleasure. You are a very honest, a very easy-going, down to earth person with a lot of integrity. We would hardheartedly recommend you to anyone we know who needs landscaping services. We wish you all the best in your business and your personal life. Hopefully, we can use your services again on future projects.

Dear Lawrence

I would like to thank you for all the landscape design and maintenance work you have done for Evie and me. Your ability to take our very difficult terrain and turn it into a showcase Lawn and Flower presentation is very impressive. We have received many compliments on the flowers and the terracing of the front Lawn from our friends and neighbors. Most recently, we hosted a Sunday School party and received compliments from everyone who attended. Thank you for all your expertise! You are the ultimate professional!

Hi Lawrence,

First Job For This Client

This is a much belated “Thank You” for the beautiful job you did in building the terraced steps leading from our deck to the backyard. They are not only very functional, they are also highly attractive architecturally. They really provide an elegant entrance into the back yard. We are very pleased.

It’s not easy these days finding someone with your work ethic and integrity. But aside from the great job that you always do, it’s reassuring to have trust in someone like you that we can count on.
Best regards.  

Lew and Marilyn Castle


You brought us the vision that we could not get on our own
You brought us the curves and lines and the plant selection that comes from a lifetime of experience.

"Lawrence Hoyle provided a landscape plan which I plan to implement myself.
He was very knowledgeable and creative in his design. I highly
recommend Lawrence - he was a delight to work with!"
Karen Debolt

Lawrence designed a perfectly scaled landscape plan for my small bungalow lot.  The review process was thorough and I found it very easy to follow the recommended plans he designed, doing most of the work myself as an inexperienced homeowner with a "black thumb".

Stan and I want to thank you for the beautiful plans you designed for our yard. With a brand new house on a very steep piece of property, we had no idea where to begin!  You not only drew up a beautiful concept, but you designed it so we could install it as our budget allowed.

As amateur gardeners, we really appreciated the time you took to find out the plants we liked, but you then suggested not only where they would thrive in the yard, but gave us a list of named varieties that will do well in this environment and are readily available in the local nurseries.

We have colored-coded one set of plans and have it posted inside our garage, so that we can envision the finished project every time we drive in.

Please stop by when you are up our way and see how well your creation is looking!

Thanks again,

Diane and Stan Nelson
