Landscaping is when you have someone cut your grass and trim your shrubs. There are many qualified people that perform these tasks and do them well. But for high end and unique landscape design work you should choose a company that specializes in that type of work, or risk having your dream project turn into a nightmare. This type of work is masonry, wall building, planting bed design and construction, pond building, and other outdoor construction projects.

The tough part is finding a company that you can trust. There are many businesses out there offering similar services, and the honest truth is not all these companies are qualified. I have heard from too many homeowners that have hired someone who promised the world, only to create a disaster in their yard. That is why I am taking this time to show you a local business that I have personally used that perform exceptional work. From designing planting areas, to putting in natural looking ponds this company can do just about anything. The owner, David Barvenik, is a highly experienced landscape architect who operates a small crew paying attention to detail. You can check out their website and photos below.

The work that they do is custom and usually is born from a vague want from the discerning homeowner.

Unique round patio with handcut insets of bluestone and cobbles. Large bluestones used for lead in walkway. Stone walls to match. See Pizza Oven below.

What I love about Dave is that you can tell him what you are looking to do and he can visualize what you want from your perspective. Just about everything they do is unique and tailored to each job specifically. Some of these photos are really cool and give you a good idea of what they are capable of.
