Here are pictures of some of Rising Sun Landscaping & Maintenance’s efforts to enhance and maintain customer properties.  Pictures are organized into primary themes, but you’ll see many landscaping ideas in each image. Take a look around to get ideas about what options might work for you, then give us a call to discuss!

Retaining Walls:

Retaining walls help add structure and a foundation to other options you have for landscaping.   They are also important for creating usable space and ensuring drainage of on property works correctly.

Patios:

Patios are essential areas to relax for you and gathering spaces for family, friends, and guests.  Each patio may have different elements, but essential elements include the surface, surface design, connectivity to your home and other walkways, and drainage.  Patios will often include other elements such as planters, shade structures, and water features.

Back yard ideas:

Patios are essential areas to relax for you and gathering spaces for family, friends, and guests.  Each patio may have different elements, but essential elements include the surface, surface design, connectivity to your home and other walkways, and drainage.  Patios will often include other elements such as planters, shade structures, and water features.

Pavers in landscaping:

Pavers provide a classic or natural look to walkways, patios, and driveways.  They are a great alternative to concrete where extra style or a different look is needed.

Outdoor Kitchens, Kivas, Fireplaces, Fire Pits:

Friends and family often gather around a place to cook or a place to stay warm and talk to each other.  These landscape features help you enjoy the outdoors. Outdoor kitchens are permanent fixtures used to cook and grill.  They may be open or covered from the elements.  Kivas are traditional fireplaces with benches.  Fire pits are great areas to gather around, stay warm and tell stories.

Front and side yard ideas:

Front yards usually contribute to a first impression to your home.  Often times they are also social gathering places to greet visitors and neighbors.  They may provide isolation from a roadway or offer a place to relax and garden.   They can also provide shade to you and your home.

Water features, ponds, fountains, river beds

Water features can add a beauty and serenity to your back or front yard.  Hearing the sound of water can add just the right amount of tranquility and unique environment to enjoy your outdoor space.  They also offer the opportunity to attract birds and other wildlife as well as explore water- loving plants that can add beauty to your yard.

Planters and gardens:

Add planters anywhere you want to cultivate your favorite plants or display other yard ornaments.  They can be constructed from many types of block and concrete and surfaced with manufactured stone, stucco, or other materials.

Walkways, sidewalks, pathways, driveways

Pathways through your landscaping are often one of the first items you plan for in landscaping.  They provide ease of access to different areas, protect your home from runoff, and sometimes provide pathways inviting you to explore private or quiet areas.  Walkways can include cement, flagstone, pavers, brick, stepping stones laid in grass or rock, and other options.

Commercial Landscaping

Commercial landscaping and maintenance adds value to your business and keeps customers coming to your location. 

Pergolas, Gazebos, Shade Structures

Pergolas, Gazebos, and other shade structures can provide refuge from the sun but may also create new separate space that is comforting to visit or great to gather with friends or family.  They are often added around a patio, but may be in an entirely separate location in your yard.  If you have the room in your yard, consider one of these small structures located in a private place for solitude or to gather for intimate conversations while you enjoy the outdoors.

Synthetic Lawn / Artificial Turf / Pet Turf in landscaping:

Synthetic Lawn provides a great looking alternative to regular lawn or sod installation and offers lower maintenance.   Costs for synthetic lawn are offset by ongoing savings in water, fertilizer, mowing, weeding, and edging.  Use of Pet Turf can also be a great option for your animals and it can be easily cleaned and maintained.

Sod / Lawn installation for landscaping:

A variety of sods and seed are available for lawn installation.  Types of sod that are recommended for our climate are Park Blend and Fescue because they are drought tolerant.  Blue is softer but takes more water and maintenance.  When installing sod, picking the right border type is important to help with maintenance.  We also provide low-maintenance irrigation systems for your lawn as needed.
