Design/Installation

Sometimes a project screams for you to put your stamp on it.

Kristen Hampshire | August 22, 2013

When you win a client’s trust, you can earn the freedom to express creativity in a landscape design. Such was the case at a property where Joe Pavlovicz had been working since he was a teenager. In the last 25 years, he has helped the homeowner completely revamp the property three times.

So when the client called and said he had found a bronze fountain and needed Pavlovicz to “figure out how we are going to put this somewhere,” Pavlovicz knew he would have some artist’s license to create a proper space for the outdoor artwork.

In this case, Pavlovicz removed some problem-area turf and tied the fountain into the rest of the gardens with walkways and hedges.

Pavlovicz loves a design challenge like this, where a client basically turns over the keys to his or her property and says: Do your thing. Part of earning those jobs requires building strong relationships with clients and proving yourself by performing on projects they request.

That’s why the client jokingly refers to his own landscape as “JTS’s place.”
