Rocking on Lake Roaming Rock

A back yard built to entertain does just that.

In southwest Ashtabula County, there is a home in the rural town of Roaming Shores where it is always party time. This is a house that every house wants to be: renovated, loved, filled with happy people and standing as a beautiful monument to everything enjoyable and meaningful. In 2010, the homeowners purchased this home on Lake Roaming Rock and have been hosting family and friends there just about every weekend since.

Raise your glass to a wine room

In a lakeside home bought for entertaining, for weekend getaways, for long hours spent with family and friends lounging by the water’s edge, one area stands out in particular.  And it’s not the dock stocked with water toys of every sort, or the classic row of Adirondack rocking chairs on the porch.  In fact, it doesn’t even offer a view of the water in any way. Tucked out of sight from the rest of the recently remodeled Roaming Shores home, a rustic wine room beckons those looking for a place to enjoy the evening in style.  Situated in the lower level, one can reach the wine room by leaving the bright main level and traipsing downstairs, or by simply following the sounds of merriment.

Indian Trails improvements dedicated

Standing at the entrance to the massive culverts over the Ashtabula River, one can’t help but wonder why providence selects some of the world’s most beautiful spots as the stages for grizzly disasters.

It was at this spot, a short walk from East 24th Street in Ashtabula, that 97 persons lost their lives in the Ashtabula Train Disaster of Dec. 29, 1876. To say “lost their lives” is too euphemistic and fails to impart a sense of the horror that occurred in this otherwise beautiful valley, for here, in the dark and cold, adults and children alike were imprisoned in wreckage, bones broken and bodies held tight to the river, steel and wood, awaiting flames to torture them to death.

Outdoor living space fills a void

Sixteen years after her family moved into their Middleburg Heights home, Gerri Beres said, “I feel like the home is finally finished.”

The crowning glory of the property, the project that was more than a decade and a half in the making, the thing that allows Gerri and husband, Mike; daughter, Allie; two dogs, Tinkerbell and Pumpkin; and gaggles of lucky friends and extended family members to truly enjoy this particular slice of Cuyahoga County, is a spectacular outdoor living space that fits so beautifully with the home and surrounding woods that first-time visitors cannot imagine the space without it.

Great Lakes American Beer Garden created by The Ohio Valley Group

Great Lakes American Beer Garden


Taste the Great Big Home + Garden Show in exotic gardens

Frozen soil, closed schools and a greenhouse fire have added to the challenges of this year’s fifth annual Great Big Home + Garden Show, poised to open Saturday at the IX Center in Cleveland.


Out of everything we saw, The Ohio Valley Group‘s Beer Garden was the best. They partnered with Great Lakes Brewing Company for a garden dedicated to GLBC and other Ohio beer. There was the beer bottle chandelier, the topiary wall cut into the shape of all of the Great Lakes, and various fountains and light fixtures made from brewing and bottling materials. The highlight, though, was the beer tap waterfall. Ohio Valley Group’s beer garden reminded me of all my favorite parts of warm weather: Hanging out at one of Cleveland’s awesome patios. Sipping wine while overlooking Geneva’s vineyards. Enjoying a game of lawn bowling in our backyard. –

After her presentation, we headed over to the Feature Gardens. By far the coolest garden was the American Beer Garden designed by The Ohio Valley Group and sponsored by Great Lakes. They had a fountain made out of beer taps, beer light fixtures, kegs as lawn art and more. Not surprisingly, they won first place. –

The first-prize winner and universal favorite was the “American Beer Garden” from The Ohio Valley Group, Inc. and Great Lakes Brewing Company. Everywhere you looked, Great Lakes beer bottles were incorporated in creative ways, from light fixtures to a huge beer bottle clock. My favorite element was the fountain made out of beer taps, which I think would be a perfect addition to our backyard! –


The Ohio Valley Group for Edward Scissorhands Show Garden

Some 100,000 people who attended this year’s Great Big Home & Garden Show in Cleveland had a special treat in store for them. An 1,800-sq.ft. show garden created by The Ohio Valley Group to pay homage to the movie classic “Edward Scissorhands.”


“What If?” Leads to “Wow!”

It all began with two little words…“what if?” This simple question has been the driving force behind an extraordinary collaboration on a recreational back yard created by Northeast Ohioan Fred and The Ohio Valley Group…

Imprelis is a weed-killing product that is suspected in the death or damage of trees and other non-target vegetation. In 2011, the federal government ordered DuPont to remove Imprelis from the market after reports of damaged and dying trees across the United States.


However, we can help you determine if your trees and other vegetation are being affected by taking soil samples.

Please call us if you have concerns that Imprelis may be damaging your trees and/or vegetation.



The Emerald Ash borer has been the cause of much recent concern. The Emerald Ash Borer is an exotic beetle that was discovered in southeastern Michigan near Detroit in 2002. The adult beetles nibble on ash foliage but cause little damage. The larvae feed on the inner bark of ash trees, disrupting the tree’s ability to transport water and nutrients.

The Emerald Ash Borer probably arrived in the United States on solid wood packing material carried in cargo ships or airplanes originating in its native Asia. This beetle was discovered in Ohio in 2003. Since its discover EAB has killed millions of ash trees and caused regulatory agencies to enforce quarantines and impose fines to prevent potentially infected trees, logs or firewood from moving out of areas where EAB occurs.

Usually the presence of the EAB goes undetected until the tree shows symptoms of infestation. These symptoms include the death of the upper third of the tree first, followed by the rest the next year. Click here for more information on the EAB.

The Ohio Valley Group’s certified arborists can remove your infected Ash tree and properly dispose of the wood. We can also recommend a replacement tree.
