Mar 16th, 2022 | POOL DIG & INSTALL

The first week of construction is in the books. Back yard tear down and clean up took a day, following that the pool excavation and installation began. This is going to an absolutely beautiful pool when finished, at 17' by 32' with a massive submerged sun deck and brilliant LED lighting. We are super excited to see the final product.

April 15th, 2022 | Utilities, Forming and Fence Posts

Well, it’s been a minute since we last posted. A few days of inclement weather, waiting for Sub Contractors to finish up their work, we are now ready set go to take over the backyard. Gas and electrical has been installed, supplying the new outdoor kitchen, fireplace, and low voltage lighting. Once those we’re taken care of, we moved on to framing out the first part of the concrete pad pour. Before actually pouring the pad however, we needed to get the posts in for the rear yard wrought iron, and side yard wooden fence. Next week we get into the concrete base for the 2x3 tiles we will be installing to make this backyard a one of a kind.

May 6th, 2022 | Concrete Base and Coping

The last two weeks have been extremely important for what is to be the main portion of the flooring in this amazing Malibu style backyard dreamscape. A good foundation is the key to everything, and well.............we poured a foundation to start with. Slope, drainage, and poured height to make sure the finished product met the threshold at the house we all very important factors that were taken in to consideration while we formed for the concrete. We found ourselves a little ahead of schedule, so we were able to jump into the pool coping and get that all shored up and mortared in before the weekend. This backyard is going to be one for the ages, we can't wait to open up the crates of STONEArch Indus Grey Limestone Pavers and get them down, but first comes the custom fireplace and Artex planters from Permacon.

May 13th, 2022 | Artex Planter Box

This last week was the kind of week landscapers dream about, amazing weather and the ability to work with a new product that not many have had the opportunity to. The Artex Panel System from Permacon is a modular product that allows you to create multiple styles of walls, with endless designs. We were even fortunate enough to have the team from Permacon stop by and check out what we had done. Next week week (fingers crossed, we should see the fireplace installation begin, as well as some flooring start to go down.

May 23rd, 2022 | STONEArch Tile

So the last update, we were really excited about the installation of a new product, this time we're even more excited about the installation of a product that isn't new, but new to us. Meet STONEArch Indus Grey 2x3 Tile. This stuff is absolutely stunning, mind blowing, fantastically gorgeous. We really are gobsmacked, and speechless when it comes to the beauty of this natural stone. We're half way through laying the tiles, so until we're complete, we'll just let a few pictures do the talking for us. Actually before we go, take not of how meticulous we are when it comes to our work. tiles are all spaced evenly, string lines are pulled to makes straight patterns, and masonry cuts are spot on to give a perfect finish.

May 27th, 2022 | STONEArch Tile v2.0

Well, with the exception of a few small stones to cut in, we have completed the tile in this dream backyard. I have bored you enough with praise in the last two posts, so I will keep this one short and sweet, with a few pics and a small video.

June 10th, 2022 | Custom Bench, Fireplace, and Planting

Well it certainly has been a busy week or two. The planting box is almost completed, box woods on the lower portion and hydrangea in the upper. The fireplace is also almost complete. The insert arrived and is in place, just awaiting the hookup. last but not least, one heck of a custom bench/storage unit. The bench is actually supported by an I-beam in the middle, allowing as to float the front of it 2 inches off the ground. This will eventually allow for the solar blanket to be stored under the bench, and rolled out/in while keeping a super clean and stealthy look.














July 29th, 2022 | The Great One, because it's 99% done

Nothing to see here, except an amazing backyard.

Pictures do not do it Justice, but I will let them speak for themselves.
