Entire Yard Renovation in Derwood

Last winter, Lauren’s Garden Service took on its biggest project yet! An entire yard renovation of the front and back yards of a new construction in Derwood.  This project started with demolition of the existing concrete walkway.  Our crew then installed a front walkway with a small landing and sitting area, steps with a pathway to a large patio, a small deck to provide access from the back door to the yard, and a walkway from the patio the the cellar entrance.

The before picture here was from June of 2018 for the initial site visit.  The project was accepted in October and we started the work on site in November!

6 months later and the plants and grass have grown in nicely!

We installed this entire patio, including the steps from the driveway and the bed behind it.


We installed this small deck to the backdoor, with a pathway from the patio and towards the back cellar entrance.  Techno-bloc pavers were used for the backwalkways.
