Raised Flower Beds in Keller, TX

Many homeowners are looking for solutions to their “problem” areas – places that just don’t look appealing or space that is underutilized. Raised flower beds, like these we built for a homeowner in Keller, transform a narrow strip that was previously awkward to mow into an eye-catching special feature. Nestled between the driveway and fence line, the raised height allows for views of seasonal flowers & other plants. This particular homeowner installed a series of 3 wooden raised beds that we customized with irrigation. Filled with the proper soil mix, they can use some or all of [...]

Dry Creek Beds for Landscape Drainage Solutions

Does your property feature a grade or slope that catches excess rainwater runoff from adjacent properties? This frequently causes a number of issues ranging from erosion and ponding to creating a breeding ground for mosquito-borne illnesses. While French drains could have been one option, we recently collaborated with this homeowner in Keller, TX to design and construct a dry creek bed. Our North Texas torrential downpours would send water streaming through their back yard, resulting in standing water or overall dampness. During our design consultation, we recommended they utilize the existing natural "riverbed" to their advantage. The illusion of [...]

For many, fall is the best time to enjoy the outdoors in North Texas. Between football games, festivals, & countless other events who wants to spend their weekend doing chores? A study published recently in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests that when people spend money on time-saving services, such as lawn care, it can actually make them feel happier. The science makes sense - although you might be perfectly capable of raking your own leaves the opportunity to buy back a bit of free time has a huge return on investment. When left on your [...]

R & O’s Top 8 Early Spring Lawncare Tips

To prevent crabgrass & grassburs, apply pre-emergent now before weed seeds germinate (“emerge”). Do this ASAP, ideally before mid-late March as germination peaks. Earlier applications generally have best results. Scalp your lawn to remove winter-killed stubble & common broadleafed weeds, like henbit (scalloped leaves with purple flowers). Remove winter damage from shrubs, vines & groundcovers to clean them up before new growth starts. Remove & replace plantings that were killed or damaged beyond repair in the cold North Texas winter. Prune & reshape spring-flowering shrubs & vines immediately after blooming to correct erratic growth [...]

Diamond Patterned Patio with Grass Borders

This Keller homeowner wanted to convert an underutilized area at the end of their driveway into a level seating area that complements their Tuscan-inspired property. We suggested this patio design with grass between the pavers to soften hard lines and instantly add a chic element. The outdoor porcelain material looks remarkably similar to travertine tiles and zeon zoysia was added to frame each porcelain paver, giving this project a finished look immediately upon completion. Grass makes an excellent filler between all types of paving materials. Not only does zeon zoysia sod offer a higher disease and [...]
