Transformed our property!
“Until Scott Erickson of Rustic Road Landscaping paid us a visit, we had given up all hope of reclaiming our front yard and never imagined that we could actually enjoy it. In fact, we had pretty much decided to hide behind the line of evergreens between our home and South 92nd Street. All we wanted was to deal with a patch of weed-choked peonies and day lilies, a job already attempted without success by another landscaper. We had limited hopes and, as we soon discovered, little vision.
Where we saw wasted space, Scott saw the potential for using evergreens as a backdrop for flowering trees. While we wanted to keep our stone wall where it was, Scott saw the possibilities of using the stone to create walls on either side of the drive.
The plan looked great and, after visiting Rustic Road, we were convinced we were on the right path, but we realized the full value of Scott’s company when we met Buck and the crew and saw them in action. Not only was the landscaping design project well-planned and professionally executed, but the landscaping contractors were talented, creative, and passionate about their work. We especially appreciated Buck’s construction of two graceful stone walls and Chris’ attention to the new trees. Okay, it took a little nudging to get us to see the value of additional trees, but we wouldn’t change it for the world.
We really appreciate the following landscape design features: the shape and variety of plants in the central area, the comparatively low-maintenance design, the contrast of plants and landscaping materials, and the overall aesthetics. Did I mention low maintenance?
Scott and Rustic Road not only transformed our property, but our plans for staying here. We now consider the wasted space to be welcoming and inviting, an integral part of our property and the neighborhood. And we look forward to years of snow cover and ice, the opening of first buds and blossoms, and growth. We are truly pleased to be part of the Rustic Road family.”
