How to staycation (and actually rest!)

While a getaway vacation is certainly nice, oftentimes the effort put into planning a vacation to an island in the sun takes so much organizing that it’s difficult to actually relax. And let’s face it, it also involves A LOT of money: airfare, hotel, transportation, food, drinks… it adds up.

Have you ever really asked yourself, “What if we just...stayed?”

We get it, you think of us as a company that mostly does landscaping and patios. But every project starts with a design. If you’re adding a swimming pool it is critical that you start with a carefully designed landscape design. A pool is a semi permanent decision and so every area of the property should be considered when planning the perfect pool oasis. I say semi permanent because of course a pool can be removed or moved, it is just very costly with little to show for the effort and cost. But if the pool is carefully planned around your family’s needs, it is an investment for you and your family to enjoy for decades.

Flowers are the most promising sign that spring is here and that summer is coming. When those first daffodils start to pop out of the ground we know there will be more and more flowers and blooms to come!
