The Story of Your Landscape
The Lowery Paver Walkway and LED Lighting Project
We were called by the Lowery family because they had purchased a new home and the front paver walkway was uneven and in disrepair. The front of the home had halogen landscape lightening and some of the fixtures were inoperable, the system was in need of repair.
We decided that we would rebuild the front walkway by removing the existing pavers and laying a new compacted base as well as the existing pavers back down. This saved the Lowery’s a considerable amount of money and allowed us to replaced to halogen landscape lightings with new LED fixtures. Keep in mind that these fixtures come with a 15 year manufacturer’s warranty. The Lowery’s will now have peace of mind for many years to come.
This project demonstrates a point I often make to our clients, that you should not always accept the cheapest bid. Once our team got to work we noticed that there were several areas that were not excavated deep enough and did not have sufficient rock to maintain the integrity of the walkway for an extended period of time. It was simply put together very poorly. We ended up replacing the lighting wire with new wire and rebuilt the connections so that the LED fixtures looked stunning. Again, I am not suggesting that you should hire the most expensive landscaper but hire a company that will do the job right the first time.
Not every project we complete is big and complicated. Some are much simpler, like this one. However, working with the client to create exactly what they want within a budget they can afford is always our goal. Notice the natural stone wall on the right of the walkway. Although it was not in the bid our team took the time to rebuild it and stack it right. It is always about exceeding the client’s expectations and making sure that when we leave they are completely satisfied with the work we do.
Every Landscape tells a story and the team at RF Landscape Services would like to help you tell your landscape story. Sometimes it’s a functional story such as erosion control or drainage. Sometimes its an aesthetic problem such as replacing an old tie wall or simply a landscape refresh. We often update our landscape with a backyard pool or paver patio to enjoy our home and property.
