Forget Trends! Get a Personalized Patio Instead

by Dwayne Regehr

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 dwayne@earthworkslandscaping.ca

These guys are fantastic. So professional. We got them in to build us a patio about 8 years ago, and they were so good I would never use anyone else. We had them back this summer to do anotherRead more … walkway job and they were just as good. The quality of the work is perfect.... beautiful. Their work is so good that the company who built our garage asked for their contact info so they could work with Earthworks in the future. They are very quick, efficient, and polite as well. I highly recommend them.

Dwayne came to our home about a month ago, saw what we wanted done, gave us a quote and indicated it would be around 6 weeks before they could get to it. In about 5 weeks he called to indicate thatRead more … they would begin the next day at 8. They were on time, did a great job, in extreme heat & humidity and the end cost was as quoted. Needless to say I enjoy working with people who are on time, honest and do professional work - Earthworks Landscaping covers off all of these important points for me.

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!

We've used Earthworks twice now, and have been incredibly pleased with both jobs. Highly recommended.
