Wildwood Landscape - November 4, 2010, 11:48 AM

Sara and I discussed for quite some time having our front & back yards landscaped. We knew we want to do pavers out front to provide some additional walkway space next to the driveway and have some new plants & bushes done. For the back yard, pavers were also on our radar in addition to a couple spots for plants & bushes.

We had Kane Landscaping & Wildwood Landscape come out to provide us some drawings & ideas, and also provide quotes for the scope of work.

In the end, we went with Wildwood for a couple reasons. The first reason was that they quoted us about $3,000 less than Kane. The second reason was we liked Wildwood's idea of the proposed design.

We ended up having our walkway removed that ran from the driveway to the front door stoop and had it all done with pavers, so as to not look "patchy".

We're very pleased with the finished product and would highly recommend either Kane Landscaping or Wildwood Landscape to anyone who might be considering having any landscaping done.

I know some of you offered up suggestions for landscaping companies, and some of you even offered to come out and help us do it ourselves. Please don't tell me you could have gotten it done for less, or ask how much we paid. We're happy with what we had done and appreciate everyone's assistance.

Here's some pictures. We have some very colorful plants, but unfortunately, due to the time of year, they won't show any color until the spring.

Thanks guys. Sara had some good input on the overall design, so I can't take all the credit.

Maybe, if you're lucky, you'll get an invite.

Wildwood does a great job. We just did a large irrigation system for them up on Blue Ridge Mountain road.

Good Choice!

Actually, that WAS the story.

Then how there was an incident after that with someone speeding in the driveway, but it was the owner's sister or something.
