Landscaping Complete!

by zesty on July 11, 2011 · 8 comments

Happy Monday all!  As many of you know, I have been talking about completing the landscaping in the yard for some time now.  Last year we planted the grass and this year it was time to complete the look.  The million dollar question is always, “who do you hire?”  because of course zesty cannot landscape!  We opted for the high quality workmanship of Court’s Landscaping.  Zach and his crew were a pleasure to work with as well as very knowledgeable in both walkways and landscaping in general.  I had many questions but nothing was over looked and we are more than pleased.

In addition to the new walkway and flower beds, we planted 34 trees to give the property some “life”.  On the north side of the lot we opted to go with White Spruce trees to combat the wind in the winter.  Through the front of the property we chose both Linden and Crimson King Maple trees to dress it up.  Along the back side we planted some white ash  to help frame the yard for the future.

I snapped a few pictures…. well maybe 60 but will not bore you with all the details.

I am off for a couple of days and visiting St. John’s Newfoundland but will be back in action for a Wednesday post.  It’s gotta be time to get grillin’.  Have a super Monday and hopefully it is sunny at your house.

Take care

Hi Zesty,
Everything looks so great! I am glad to see you have some daylilys in the landscaping. I bet you that it is Stella de’Oro. I grow daylilys and there are so many different colors to just using Stellas. If you go to this website: you can see so many others that are registered with the American Hemerocallis Society. Just look or visit, The Lily Auction where daylilys are sold to bidders.
