Learn more about the importance of landscaping maintenance and read on to see the results of two landscaping projects from Oshawa.
Backyard Makeover for $17,000 in Oshawa
Distinctive Designs Landscaping completely transformed Natialie’s backyard in Oshawa. The job included installing a patio, retaining walls, steps, and a walkway. While the project’s main goal was to provide an entertainment space, it does much more than that.
As you can see from the photos, the finished product is beautiful. The interlocking walkway flows into the larger space which creates a space to entertain. The remaining ground was patched with sod and the garden beds were filled with bushes. Interlocking pavers are a great choice compared to regular concrete. They are strong and flexible, minimizing the amount of cracking. They are also easy to repair if needed. Installing a walkway can help navigate guests through your yard. It can also help to keep your home clean by keeping people off of muddy terrain.
Not pictured, but another part of the project was the retaining wall. As you can see the yard has been separated into an upper and lower half. Installing an upper and lower section creates the illusion that the yard isn’t sloped. The single-step installed down onto the patio acts as a retaining wall. Retaining walls minimize erosion by decreasing the angle of the slope, as well as holding back soil.
Whole-Home Landscaping for $22,000 in Oshawa
Land Escapes Durham transformed this homeowner’s property with a new backyard patio, walkways, and gardens. Similar to Natalie’s project, the backyard patio and walkways are the same material and tied together as one. This helps to tie the entire property together, from front to back. Walkways, as mentioned, are good for navigating the property, but also add to the curb appeal of the property. Additionally, Land Escapes Durham filled all the garden beds with fresh dirt and greenery. Greenery in your yard is beneficial in many ways as it can improve air quality, reduce noise, and provide you with a relaxing hobby.
