Every landscape we design is constructed for the long-term and to the highest professional standards. Our designers work in tandem with our construction teams to reach a seamless execution of even the most difficult projects. You can add a calming hot tub next to a stone patio or deck, build a picturesque pathway leading to a tranquil garden with a trickling water feature, install a full bar with cutting-edge appliances, or simply refresh your plants and trees to add color and last from season to season. The opportunities are endless, but we’ll help you narrow them down to create your own piece of paradise in your summer backyard. To give your yard a lush burst of color for summer, it’s best to start with the lawn itself. During the colder months, harsh weather can do some serious damage to your grass. So once the sun is shining and the temperatures are warm, it’s time to make sure your lawn is healthy and thriving with a lawn installation or renovation.

By installing or renovating your existing lawn, you’ll have a sense of pride in your property and your family and friends will want to spend their summer days enjoying. Feeling removed from the noise of the street and surrounding houses will put you at ease so you can fully unwind. Adding trees and shrubs to your property is a great way to add a feeling of security, giving you and others a sense of privacy. This privacy will allow you to feel relaxed and comfortable which is exactly how you should feel in your own backyard. Once you’ve selected and placed your larger plants, you can add pops of color with flowers and smaller bushes. To...

Designing a Summertime Backyard Summertime is busy—between camps, sports practice, birthday parties, and work, it’s hard to find the time and money to get away. But we’re here to tell you that finding summertime rest and relaxation doesn’t have to mean planning an extravagant trip with planes, trains, and automobiles. There’s a private oasis right in your backyard that Ohio Valley Group will help you discover. Learn about how we can help develop a summertime backyard. The first step toward attaining your almost-tropical summertime backyard is sitting down with our experts at Ohio Valley Group and telling us about your dream backyard in great detail to make sure we don’t miss a beat. You can also fill out our convenient Vision Planner, which asks questions that help us get to know you and your inspiration on a deeper level. Once we understand your vision, we’ll work with our construction team to deliver a seamless transformation from start to finish. Whether you want a water feature to bring the ocean closer, or a patio or deck to act as a perfect landing place for your grill, the possibilities are endless and we will make sure they’re affordable. Upon request, we will give you a full estimate before any work begins so we can be sure our plans are in sync. We’ll do whatever we can to give you the at-home retreat you’ve always wanted at a budget that works for you. One of the best ways to define your space is by laying a stone patio or a stamped concrete surface. Stamped concrete is designed to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, cobblestone, and many other patterns, so we use it as an alternative to natural pavers such as asphalt, natural stone, and precast pavers. These surfaces create differentiation from your yard and other landscaping elements to add visual interest and a landing pad for grills, tables, lounge chairs, and more. No matter which surface you choose, a patio can designate dining, grilling, swimming, or lounging space while keeping the surrounding areas lush and green. Stone patios are also the perfect home for a fireplace or fire pit. You can match the heat of the summer and the soft glow of the sunset by enhancing your patio with warmth from a beautiful...
