I knew that I wanted to do something with my backyard because it looked so plain and boring. It is all fenced in, so it was just a big plot of land with nothing special about it. I do a lot of entertaining, and I just wanted something much nicer. I am not creative at all, so I looked online to see if there were any companies in the area that do landscape design in Nassau County NY. I knew that I needed a company that could take my very basic ideas and turn them into something very beautiful.
I knew that I wanted something more than just my patio as a gathering spot, but I was clueless on what could be done. When one of the contractors came out to look at what I wanted done and to give me an estimate, he brought a lot of ideas with him. I told him that I definitely wanted a decorative fence and wall, but I wanted more than that too. He showed me a lot of pictures of different things that could be done, and I was simply amazed at the different things that they are able to do to transform a very ordinary yard into something very beautiful.
They ended up putting in a privacy fence for me, and then they extended my patio. At one end, there is now a fire pit that is built in, and the other end is going to be where I put the new grill and patio furniture that I bought. They also created a couple of walkways, and one of them leads to a very small pond that has a waterfall. Like I said, they created a gorgeous oasis for me, and I could not be happier with it. All of my friends love it too!
