Durand Area Front Landscaping
The owners of this home in the Durand area of Hamilton noticed that their front entrance steps had become quite a safety hazard. The cracking concrete and deteriorating clay bricks made it worrisome for those who used the steps often.
Envision Landscapes suggested using Unilock stone, combined with an accent stone, that worked well with the existing style of the house. Along the left side of the property, a walkway was completed to connect with existing asphalt. A drainage problem in the front corner of the house was addressed at the same time. A railing was added along the right side of the front steps to improve accessibility. This also minimized liabilities that exist in the old landscape. The plant material grew in around the hardscape elements of the project and the end result was a beautiful fresh look for this century home in Hamilton.
After this project was completed, the client contacted us with a vision for the backyard. When they originally purchased the home, they had inherited an old and very unsafe wooden deck and outdated planter beds. They were unable to walk across the deck to get to the back driveway and it took up so much room that their young daughter had nowhere to play. Envision Landscapes updated the entire backyard area, removing the deck and planter beds. We installed a stone patio, featuring three different types of stone, and a seating area complete with a pergola. A new fence was installed, along with some small, low maintenance beds. The new look promotes functionality and outdoor living. It was quite the transformation!
