From Your Local Landscaping Experts in Ennis, Texas
Landscape installation is a similar process to having your home renovated, but it all happens on the exterior! If you have ever looked at your plain backyard and wondered if anything could be done to make it more exciting, you will be amazed at the possibilities.
Landscaping extends the living area of your home, much like building an extension open to the outdoors. It is designed to improve the aesthetics of your home and yard, while creating a functional living space that accommodates your lifestyle. It can be as basic as adding new greenery and as detailed as extravagant transformations that totally rejuvenate your property. Not only does it add value to your home, but it provides a place where you can enjoy activities, and explore new possibilities with your family and friends.
When Does Landscape Installation Begin?
The installation phase of your new landscape begins after you have worked with our design team to make the most of your outdoor property. Throughout the construction, we continue to work closely with you to ensure that every detail of your plan gets the attention it deserves. As the work progresses, you will see your landscape come to life!

Throughout all of the activity, we take every precaution to ensure safety, adherence to project timelines, and quality that enhances your outdoor space with color, shape and function, Your finished landscape will be amazing, reflecting your personal style!
Dirt Work, Grading, Drainage, and French Drains
For every aspect of your yard to have meaning and purpose, it may be necessary to give it a whole new shape. Some of our landscape installation projects may include:
- Dirt Work. Contouring the earth with mounds and boulders.
- Grading. Scraping the surface and replacing with new topsoil.
- Drainage. Working with the natural drainage of the land to provide adequate water runoff.
- French Drains. A buried drainage system that pulls water away from the foundation of your home.
Irrigation and Sprinkler Systems
Irrigation and sprinkler systems are installed to overcome deficiencies in rainwater needed for your plant life to thrive. They ensure that the horticultural elements in your yard, including all trees, shrubs, gardens and lawns are receiving enough moisture. They replace the need to hand water or manually set out sprinklers.
The hardscape part of your outdoor environment consists of all the "hard" or non-living elements. These are the man-made features created from stone, wood, metal and concrete. Some examples are patio stone walkways, brick retaining walls, metal archways and water features. They add interest and appealing focal points to the environment. The best landscapes incorporate a balance between the hard elements and the softer, horticultural elements.
Patios and Walkways
Patios and walkways are important to your landscape for safety, convenience and aesthetics. Patios can serve many purposes: a gathering place for entertaining and family activities, an outdoor cooking area, or a quiet, secluded nook for reading. Walkways can be constructed with materials that add a pleasing finishing touch to your landscape. They connect the various places in your landscape together, protect your vegetation from being trampled, and provide a safe and durable surface for foot traffic.
Plants, Trees, Shrubs, Grasses, Vegetables and Flowers
Getting just the right proportion of plant life compared with the hardscape features in your yard is an art. This is the living element in your landscape that adds uplifting color and vibrancy. A combination of trees, flowering shrubs, flower beds, hanging baskets and lawns bring beauty, fragrant perfumes, movement, shade and perfect settings for family activities. Do you have a green thumb? Our gardening experts can recommend the most productive vegetable plants for the local climate.
Xeriscaping is widely popular because of its low impact on water resources. This method of landscaping is designed to reduce, or completely eliminate the need for irrigation. The trees and plants are able to flourish with only the natural amount of precipitation that falls. It can reduce water consumption by as much as 75 percent.
Helping You Enjoy Your New, Low Maintenance Lawn
Once your new landscape installation is complete, we want you to be able to relax and enjoy it. We specialize in designing yards that require very little maintenance. Using slow-growing shrubs, ornamental grasses, rolling ground covers or contained, mulched beds reduces hours of weed-pulling. Landscaping rocks and decorative stone can replace huge expanses of lawns that require constant maintenance.
