Our clients in McMurray, PA built their home from the ground up. This meant that they were in serious need of some lawn and landscaping services after heavy machinery and large crew teams were bustling on the property daily. This new build left their lawn grassless and plantless, so they had a lot of room for creativity when designing their landscape.
The final step to a new build is usually replenishing the grass and adding landscaping features, so we were excited to help our clients tie up their project with a nice bow. Our clients wanted to focus on adding a landscape bed with plants, repairing the grass, and installing outdoor lighting.
