3D Landscape Design & Virtual Landscaping

Our goal is to custom design & build projects that best suit our customer’s.  The correct balance of Landscape and lawn space is imperative for a well proportioned design as are illustrated in our 3D virtual landscape design gallery that each design is unique.

Throughout our 30 years of landscape service for the Pittsburgh area, we have faced many challenges: from running an efficient company, to staying on the cutting edge of the newest landscape trends, and most important of all, keeping our customers satisfied. Without our customers, we would not survive as a landscape company.

At the end of each year, we break down our past year and analyze our company and search for areas for improvement. The toughest challenge we typically face is finding the most effective way to give customers a complete visual perspective and understanding of our proposed landscape designs. Thanks to advances in technology we can now offer complete 3D virtual renderings of what your landscaping project will look like.

There are certain jobs that you cannot do yourself and thus require a landscape contractor. Soil grading, rock hounding, and aggregate spreading are all labor intensive jobs that demand special skills and equipment, such as a Bobcat or skid steer. By hiring the leader in Pittsburgh landscaping, you can ensure that proper attention is given to drainage, trenching, and dirt grading.

A high-quality landscaping contractor will make sure that structurally essential jobs such as setting footers, building walls, and trenching for utilities are done right the first time. Our trained experienced operators of the necessary heavy equipment can tackle those daunting gravel spreading, land clearing, aggregate removal and light excavation jobs. So whether you are staring at an overwhelming dirt removal or trenching job, look no further for Pittsburgh’s best landscape contractor.

Landscape Maintenance

Landscape Maintenance is one of the most important parts of Pittsburgh landscaping.  Keeping up with the regular outdoor chores of weed removal, leaf removal, shrub trimming and hedge pruning, tree service and garden edging will keep your backyard landscape looking great for years.

One of the many things that make Pittsburgh landscapes so dynamic is the distinct changing of seasons.  But, the autumn’s falling leaves and the freeze-thaw cycles of winter and spring can make your landscape thirsty for a qualified landscape contractor to repair seasonal damages. Full service landscape maintenance spans each season of the year, from fall clean up and leaf removal, to choosing garden shrubs and evergreen bushes for new spring growth and working on weed removal all summer long.

Grading and Drainage

Nothing spoils the joy of home-ownership quicker than discovering a flooded basement. A wet basement quickly becomes a moldy basement, turning a hassle into a health hazard. Undoing this damage is an expensive and lengthy disruption to your life. Prevent disaster by ensuring proper lawn drainage through professionally installed gutters and expert soil grading. By placing downspouts accurately and installing French drains when needed, you can avoid a costly basement waterproofing later.

Have you noticed pooling water in your yard? Maybe flooding has already occurred. However there are certain solutions available. Perhaps the original soil grading was done poorly. Redoing it and installing proper edging can divert water away from your home. A call to Pittsburgh’s leading landscape contractors is the first step toward proper yard drainage.



Landscape Lighting

When conceiving a landscape design, remember landscape lighting lest you miss out on opportunities to be outdoors after hours. There are countless options available, such as accent lights, spot lights, and path lights. By employing these outdoor lighting options, your outdoor landscape will be an inviting place twenty-four hours a day.

Those who are mindful energy consumers need not worry about installing landscape lights. With abundant solar powered and led landscape lights available, outdoor lights do not necessarily affect your electric bills. However, do not assume that solar landscape lighting and low voltage lighting require a sacrifice in the amount of light created. By employing the leading Pittsburgh landscape contractor, you can ensure both your electrical and design needs are met.



Lawn Service & Maintenance

While there have been drastic changes in landscape designs, a lush, beautiful lawn is still the hallmark of an eye-catching outdoor space. Getting that shining frontyard is simple. Transforming your old lawn is as easy as a phone call. Pittsburgh’s leading lawn service completely eliminates the headache of seeding and takes care of old lawn removal, soil grading, and new lawn installation for you.

No element of your backyard will scare us away. We work around trees and shrubs and will lay mulch and any necessary edging in the process. Not only will this revitalize your yard, our grading process will also improve drainage, ensuring that your lawn has a long-lasting beauty. So forget the weekend spent with grass seed and leave the lawn care to us.


Fire Pits & Fire Rings

Considering how a fireplace transforms a room, imagine how a firepit changes an outdoor living space. By placing an attractive fire pit feature (such as a brick outdoor fireplace) onto your patio, you increase both its ambiance and usefulness. As more homeowners see their patio as a space to host guests, the desire for outdoor kitchens has increased. Move beyond the traditional grill and install an attractive brick bbq.

Perhaps you simply want a gathering place. A chiminea or a fire bowl give your outdoor living space a focal point without costly installation. Want to add some Asian flare? Pagoda fire pits are an Asian-inspired variation that serve the same function. Want to enjoy your outdoor design year round? Then a patio heater may be the best solution for you.


Outdoor Kitchens & Living Spaces

The Pittsburgh region has taken advantage of its beautiful landscapes and brought cooking and dining outdoors.  Your outdoor kitchen can be as simple as an outdoor fireplace and small patio preparation area.  Or, you can create a lavish outdoor living space with built-in grills, outdoor wet bars, patio refrigerators, and full service outdoor dining areas

Outdoor living allows you to expand the areas of your home for relaxing and entertaining onto your patio or into your landscape.  Have a place where the kids can run and jump without wrecking havoc, and a space where the natural scenery of your Pittsburgh landscape complements your outdoor living and outdoor dining spaces.  Whether you’re hosting small family get-togethers or huge backyard bashes for the entire neighborhood, a beautiful outdoor kitchen is the perfect venue.
