When we were first contacted by our clients in Ashland, NE, they were looking for a way to enhance their outdoor living space. They not only wanted to increase the beauty of their landscaping, but they were also looking for ways to make spending time outdoors more enjoyable. When we arrived at their property for the initial consultation, we listened to their goals and then provided some recommendations to help our clients accomplish them. We decided that we would install landscape beds in their front yard and side yard to add beauty and color to their property. We also decided that we would install a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen on their patio so that they had places to spend time with their friends and family while enjoying their outdoor area.

To ensure that the entire project would turn out exactly how our clients envisioned, we created a design rendering for them. After they approved the design, we got right to work!


We met with our clients for a consultation and then created a design rendering of their project.

After our clients initially reached out to us, we scheduled a time to come out to their property for a consultation. During this consultation, we listened to their goals and worked collaboratively with them to come out with a plan to accomplish them all. Once we decided that we would install landscape beds, an outdoor kitchen, and a fire pit on their property, we created a design rendering for them so that they could see what the project would like when it was finished. After they approved the design, it was time for us to get to work.


We installed landscape beds throughout their property and filled them with beautiful plants and flowers.

Our clients had a beautiful yard, but it lacked any elements that made it stand out. To remedy this situation, we installed landscape beds throughout their property. In their front yard, we installed a large landscape bed between their driveway and the sidewalk. We also installed one directly in front of their home that wrapped around their side yard. We filled these landscape beds with flowers, shrubs, and small trees to add color and beauty to their property.

After we finished installing the plants in their landscape beds, we installed brown mulch in them. This mulch added beauty to their landscape beds and made their plants "pop." Our clients were also thrilled to learn that the mulch would provide numerous other benefits to their landscape beds throughout the year, including:

  • Soil temperature regulation
  • Moisture retention
  • Weed control
  • Soil erosion control

As mulch decomposes, it returns nutrients to the soil!


We installed a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen on their patio.

While our clients had a large patio area, it needed some features to make it a great place to spend time. Our clients decided to have a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen installed on their patio. Our clients choose a rectangular fire pit design and we used concrete blocks for the base of the fire pit and topped it with a custom cap. This fire pit instantly became the focal point of their backyard and our clients love how they can gather around it with their friends and family, especially when the weather is a little chilly.

After their fire pit was completed, we installed their outdoor kitchen. We built this kitchen using the high-quality materials that our clients had selected. This kitchen featured a grill and plenty of counter space to make cooking outdoors easy and convenient.
