Oakdale, Pa. landscape design company named April semi-finalist of 2010 Landscaper’s Challenge

2010 Landscaper's Challenge

K Morris Landscape Design transforms a residential yard from mundane to an oasis for entertaining family and friends of all ages.

| June 23, 2010

K Morris Landscape Design, Inc. of Oakdale, Pa., has been named the April semi-finalist for the 2010 Landscaper’s Challenge, sponsored New Holland Construction. The company tackled a suburban backyard that looked like every other backyard in the neighborhood, transforming it into an entertaining platform for family and friends.
 

Before:

 

 

  • Project: The Ultimate Back Yard Oasis
  • Total man hours to complete: 2,000
  • Synopsis: The setting was ideal – a back yard overlooking acres of the Ben Avon valley – but the yard was lackluster. The Logan family of Avonworth Heights, Pa., dreamed of creating an ultimate back yard getaway with all of the amenities – a swimming pool, an outdoor living area, fireplace, outdoor kitchen, and play space for the kids. The challenge included excavating and grading to create the necessary space for the pool and outdoor living area. Using primarily a small skid loader and a back hoe for the pool, approximately 2,000 cubic yards of materials was excavated and relocated on site. No material was brought in or taken off site. The result was a larger, more functional, beautiful, usable space.
