This project is a complete yard makeover, we are working under a deadline as the owner is preparing the yard and gardens for a May garden show. We will be remodeling and installing the following:
  • 900 L/F of slate stone pathway set in ¼ minus gravel.
  • 1000 sq/ft of new slate patios for sitting areas and gathering.
  • Various remodeled areas containing new plantings, flower beds, stone work, retaining walls.
  • 120 sq ft wood gazebo.
  • Antique Iron gazebo mounted on slate patio.
This Project is a home in West Salem that will be on the tour of homes this month.
This project is a commercial courtyard that we demolished and built out for a client. This project was interesting mainly due to having to move all materials, soils, plants, pavers, gravel, rock, pipe, down through the elevators to be hauled off site. We started by removing about 400 yards of material, soil, plants, concrete, etc to ready the courtyard for the new project.

Owners contracted with us to install a new patio, walkways, low maintenance, drought tolerant plants set in round rock ground cover. We stumbled upon an old drain field servicing their roof gutters that they didn't know about, this needed to be fixed so we pulled out the old and installed a new drain area away from the house and project.

Materials used on this project

These homeowners have contracted with us to completely rebuild their back yard with a James Town Park and Plaza paving stone patio, walkways accessing each side of the house, an area for the garbage cans to be placed behind the fence in the back yard fence, a new retaining wall from Willamette Graystone a sprinkler system and new sod lawn from Kuenzi Turf.

This project is a re-setting of a 1,000 sq ft patio done a few years back by another contractor. The pavers had settled as much as a foot in some areas, we removed the pavers, cleaned them, re-graded the entire area and added a drain to accommodate water runoff from the hill. We also added the charcoal Holland stone border and small planter.

When I first looked at this West Salem project the owner had a good idea of what he wanted, I have to admit it took me a little while to get his vision but eventually after a couple of meetings we landed upon an over all idea and theme.They had a very steep hill that was difficult at best to walk on, they wanted paths and a tree fort like deck to sit out in nature and listen to the stream and the birds in the background. In the landscape industry most outdoor projects are one of a kind and this one definitely fits that category.
The owners of this West Salem home wanted a new back yard, the orignal concrete patio was small and beginning to break up, so we installed the Jamestown Park and Plaza stone from Western Interlock on the patio and pathway leading to the front of the house, again this is a very popular stone with the blend of colors and variety of patterns we install more of this stone than any other. New sod lawn, enhancements to the sprinkler system.
This was a unique craftsman home in North Portland, there is a lot of detail in this project from stamped, colored concrete to slate sealed patio, rye grass sod lawn, powder coated rod iron fence, 24 volt lighting, Hunter underground sprinklers, basalt ledgstone borders.
