As we spend more and more time at home, you’ve probably started adding projects to your to-do list. A majority of these projects might be inside your home — for now. Once the snow melts and you start to spend more time outside, some exterior projects will start to get added. Instead of waiting to knock them off one by one, why not connect with a pro early to get started on transforming your home’s landscaping now? Take a look at these two landscaping projects completed for Hamilton homeowners to get inspired.
Complete Backyard Landscaping for $50,000 in Hamilton
Mike and their family hired All In One Landscaping to completely transform their backyard. Mike’s backyard had a pool with an interlocking patio surrounding it, as well as an open area beyond their pool shed that was not used for anything. Mike wanted to update the existing space and make more use of the extra space. All In One Landscaping was able to install a new patio, a deck, as well as update the lighting and swing gates. Take a look at the finished product here.
Mike’s existing patio was quite aged as you can see from the photos. There was spacing between each stone in which dirt and grass were coming through. With a pool in the backyard, this isn’t great as it can increase the amount of dirt that is brought into the pool. Along with this, the patio had become uneven throughout which can be a safety hazard, especially around a pool. Older patios may have been installed by laying the pavers on top of the sand. Over time the sand can wash away, causing an uneven surface. Today, most patios are installed with a strong foundation to ensure they don’t create an uneven surface over time.

Mike’s decision to install a deck overlooking his sloped yard was a great way to make use of the space. The uneven hill was hard to use beforehand, so installing a structure on top of it was a great way to use the space. Now their family has a nice deck area to use. Plus there is still visibility of the pool. Take a look at the finished product here.
By planning early, Mike was able to have the company finished all the work before it was time to open the pool. This way their family didn’t miss out on any pool time once the warm weather hit. It’s important to plan ahead when it comes to larger projects. Take a look at 5 projects to start planning in February, and get connected with a local pro today.
Backyard Landscaping for $50,000 in Hamilton
Much like Mike, this homeowner from Hamilton also updated their backyard landscaping. This project, also completed by All In One Landscaping, included installing a new patio, laying new sod, updating walkways, and finally installing new stairs.
As you can see from the photos, this homeowner’s interlock patio had dirt and weeds coming through, as well as an uneven surface. The existing patio was not aesthetically pleasing and the overgrown weeds and uneven surface made it hard to make use of the space. By updating the yard, this homeowner can now enjoy their space. The new patio will ensure that no weeds will come through, allowing them to be able to use their outdoor dining space. As well, the new sod makes the yard more enjoyable, and the new paths laid ensure no dirt will be tracked through the house.
Both of these homeowners completely redid their yards, which made the projects more costly than typical landscaping jobs. Don’t be intimidated by the numbers, investing in your home only adds value to your property, both monetary and leisurely.
