Paver Installation

Pavers can give not only a unique aesthetic to your backyard landscaping in St. Petersburg, but they can also add functionality. You can create patios, pathways, and steps with various styles and colors of pavers. This enhances the look of your yard as well as increases the walkable surface area.

Fence Installation

Fences are the perfect border to outline your yard. Whether you have small children or pets you want to keep in a safe space or you simply like the classic, clean look that fences give, we can help. Installation is simple with a little help from us. Fence types vary from vinyl, aluminum, wood, and more, with a wide variety of styles for each, and we can help you decide which is best suited for your yard in St. Petersburg and your needs.

Landscape Lighting

While backyard landscaping is a beautiful sight to behold in the daytime, you will not be able to enjoy it and reap the benefits without being able to see it in the dark at nighttime. With professional landscape lighting, you can brighten up pathways and areas where people congregate, preventing tripping hazards, increasing security, and allowing you to enjoy your yard at any time of day.

  • LED rope lighting. This style of lighting helps illuminate pathways as well as create a clear boundary between yard and pavement.
  • Security lighting. Many St. Petersburg residents seek out security lighting to ward off any potential trespassers or even critters in the night. We can set up motion detection lights or fixtures that remain on from dusk until dawn.
  • Spotlights. These are excellent for highlighting certain features you want to show off such as a fountain or flagpole.
  • Bullet lights. Used to place a focus on a specific spot such as a tree or bush in the foliage.
  • Canister/well lights. These are often placed along pathways amongst foliage to help guide walkers at night.
  • Wash lights. Often used as uplights on buildings to enhance their appearance in the dark, these can be used in a variety of ways, such as with trees or sheds.

No matter what type of illumination you choose, it will act to enhance your backyard landscaping at all hours of the day in St. Petersburg.
