At Earthworks, patio and landscape designs begin with function – how do you plan to use your yard? Although we take an interest in what is is hot this year in landscaping, we are less concerned with current trends, than we are with your current and future needs.
For example, one of the hottest trends in landscaping today is outdoor kitchens. Lawn and garden magazines are filled with articles about the movement towards outdoor cooking. That's fantastic, for people who love to cook outdoors. But if what you really need is is just a quiet spot in the sun to relax and enjoy a book, let's leave the built-in BBQ and wood fired pizza oven to someone who will use it on a regular basis.
When I (Dwayne) first meet with you to discuss a potential landscape design, I like to start by talking about how you hope to actually use your space and what problems with your current yard we might tackle.
If you're a young couple contemplating starting a family, your needs will be very different from a family with teens who are poised to leave the house in the next few years. And empty nesters with possible future mobility issues will have a different set of priorities.
Maybe you have a drainage problem and need stop water from collecting along the back of your house after every rainfall. Or maybe the grass doesn't grow well in the back yard and you are tired of the dog tracking mud into your kitchen.
Maybe you just see an empty canvas of a backyard, but aren't sure what it needs!
Regardless, our approach here at Earthworks is to favour your actual needs over anything else, to build something you'll actually love using, year after year.
If that sounds good to you, let's make it happen! Give me (Dwayne) a call or text at 204-955-6622, or shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
On time, on budget as promised. Dwayne and his crew worked hard and left nothing behind. The grass looks great, the deck is amazing. We tested it this weekend with a group of family members,Read more … nobody fell through!
Very pleased with quality of workmanship. Highly recommend
We had many contractors come to give estimates and we chose Earthworks. Dwayne's estimate on when he could do the project was incredible and he charged us what he quoted. We had done some changesRead more … after the initial meeting and within 24 hours we had a revised estimate sent to us for review and he made additional suggestions to us for consideration. He actually was able to start before the estimated date and we couldn't be happier with our new backyard space. I was most impressed when emailing questions that he would answer them very quickly. Not only was the workmanship excellent but the professionalism in returning questions and offering alternative solutions exceeded our expectations!!!!
Looks great and he billed what he quoted! This was our second project with Earthworks and we would recommend them to anyone.
