Let LawnCare by Walter’s team of talented designers create a hardscape or softscape to suit your home or place of business. At home, we can transform your outdoor area into a space that is functional for family gatherings, larger parties, or small intimate occasions by adding the appropriate hardscape items such as lighting, patios, necessary retaining walls, fire pits, and water features. Beautifully arranged flowers, plants, and foliage can help you achieve privacy and shade. We’ll help make your place of business more inviting for both your employees and customers. A patio can serve as a great place for your workforce to have lunch outside and rejuvenate themselves before returning to their tasks. Seasonal décor around your company’s front door can help you portray your company as one that is organized and financially healthy.

Whether you’re looking to redesign your home or business, fill out our checklist and choose your dream landscape by selecting the items that apply to you. We offer both high and low maintenance options.
