It all starts with a plan. Many homeowners are overwhelmed by the prospect of landscaping their home and don’t know where to start. Many just start ripping out all the shrubs and trees on a mature and overgrown landscape and then start from scratch but do the same mistakes all over again.



Folks often purchase a home and inherit a landscape that the previous owner took care of over many years. Beautiful, colorful gardens and perennials with flowers from spring to fall. Problem is the new homeowner has neither knowledge or time or money to keep up this Labor of Love as I like to refer to it. Here’s an interesting article that I came across that describes 90% of the landscapes that I have been going out to renovate over the years: Top 10 Landscape Mistakes by Steve Boehme 

This is a project we did June 2022 where the homeowner had ripped out an older landscape and called to have an updated landscape that he would like to have maintained (pruned and mulch refreshed annually) due to his family’s busy schedule. BEFORE PHOTOS

We kept a few of his hydrangeas, shrubs and perennials-transplanted a few for design purposes and updated his home with new curb appeal and 3 seasons of interest. We also repaired the paver walkway edging and lifted up some low spots at the same time due to existing water settling and drainage and now all they have to do is water 🙂 AFTER PHOTOS

Picture Perfect Landscapes Designed with Smart Maintenance in Mind: For over 30 years Picture Perfect Landscape has specialized in lower maintenance landscapes that offer 3 seasons of color and texture including evergreens, flowering shrubs, some specimen trees for interest and non-invasive perennials. Simpler but colorful, easier to maintain Picture Perfect landscapes for today’s busy people. 

Over the years we have done dozens of new construction blank slate projects but the trend over the last decade is renovations on existing landscapes. Homeowners looking to protect their investments and do not know where to start. Here is a great article from a fellow landscape designer that describes exactly what we see every day: How Did This Landscape Disaster Happen?

This makes it easier for clients to have a smart maintenance program to manage either themselves or to have our crews come in once or twice a year to maintain for them. Interested in finding out more, contact us today for a free landscape evaluation and estimate to have your home become “Picture Perfect” 🙂 We also offer photo and 3D video design for visuals depending on the size of the project and budget.
