Creating Backyard Privacy and Function with Stonework

The location of this Evans home is perfect for accessibility to shopping and schools, and the backyard pool is perfect for entertaining. However, the backyard lacked privacy. The Between the Edges team worked with the homeowner to improve both the privacy and the function of this beautiful outdoor space.

We built a retaining wall in Stonegate Sierra running the link of the backyard, separating the pool from the nearby through street. In addition to the retaining wall, we also built a compact fireplace in Beechwood with Indiana Limestone caps and a complementary wood box and hearth, two Beechwood seat walls with Indiana Limestone caps on either side of the fireplace, and a surrounding walkway using Templehurst Sierra pavers. The result is backyard that is ideal for entertaining at any time of year.

Does your pool need a landscaping facelift? Does your backyard lack the privacy you’d prefer? Let Between the Edges help you customize your outdoor space to meet your needs.

Evans Retaining Wall Delivers Function and Beauty

The original wooden retaining wall on the side of this Evans property was built when the house was built in 1998. The wall served to prevent slow erosion as well as wash out from rain storms. The homeowners contacted Between the Edges when the wooden retaining wall began to rot and collapse. The Between the Edges team designed a stone retaining wall to replace the failing structure and showcase the landscaping skills of its homeowners, one of whom is a master gardener. The new stone retaining wall features a unique wave pattern, which creates visual interest and blends in with the natural surroundings.

If there is a steep grade separating your house from your neighbor’s property, a retaining wall provides beneficial protection against erosion and an aesthetically-appealing visual delineation between lots. If you have questions about retaining walls, contact Between the Edges today.

Commercial Landscape Update

We recently updated the landscaping at Stokes Hodges Ford in Graniteville, SC. We used a combination of shrubs and florals to create a colorful, fresh look for the bed. Varying the colors and types of plants is a great way to create a more visually appealing landscape. Between the Edges offers comprehensive landscaping services for businesses across the CSRA.

Both residential and commercial properties benefit from improved curb appeal. The team at Between the Edges can design, install and maintain your property’s landscaping, to help ensure your business stands out for all the right reasons.

A Relaxing Augusta Backyard

We helped these Augusta homeowners expand their outdoor living space with a new paver walkway and patio, using pavers in Templehurst Sand Dune. The highlight of the patio is a unique waterfall cascading into a bed of river rocks. The result is a true backyard oasis, minutes from Augusta shopping and dining.

A water feature provides a relaxing focal point in any outdoor landscape. Whether a water feature, a fire pit, or a custom grilling area, let us help you create outdoor spaces that make you want to be outside. Contact Between the Edges today to get started. 

Updated Entrance to Aiken Home

We used pavers in buff to revitalize the main entrance to this home. We created a paver walkway from the current driveway to the new curved paver steps (a unique alternative to brick or concrete steps). We also installed two retaining walls, each running alongside the driveway and paver walkway to meet the new steps. The retaining walls with inset paver details are both attractive and functional, preventing water and landscape run-off onto the driveway.

At Between the Edges, we recommend that you never underestimate the power of pavers. Need a new patio, walkway, steps or retaining wall? Contact us today.

Grovetown Retaining Wall Installation

When Between the Edges first arrived at this Grovetown home, the slope of the backyard limited the yard’s function. We installed a paver retaining wall to both improve drainage and give the yard two areas of level, usable space. This particular homeowner has plans to build a barn.

Don’t allow your current landscaping to limit your yard’s future potential. Between the Edges can help you design your outdoor spaces to meet both your current and future needs. Contact us today to get started.

Hardscape Improvements in North Augusta

The concrete patio in this North Augusta home’s backyard was original to the 50-year old house and in need of an update. We replaced the concrete patio with a modern paver patio. To safely address the slope of the yard to the patio, we installed two stucco retaining walls, each with stairs. The result is an attractive, functional backyard entertaining space.

Backyard Landscaping in Beech Island

Well-executed landscaping is both attractive and in keeping with the needs of the space. In this Beech Island backyard, we installed a retaining wall in sloped area beyond the pool, along with landscaping beds featuring Pink Sasanqua and Dwarf Gardenia, nestled in beautiful river rock. River rock is a lower-maintenance option than mulch or pine straw and is useful both in protecting against erosion and controlling weeds. The result is a beautiful backyard with improved usability and erosion control.

Backyard Ready for Year-round Relaxation

When we arrived, this home already featured a beautiful pool. We worked with the homeowners to create attractive surrounding spaces that enhance both the usability and the curb appeal of this South Carolina backyard. We installed a paver patio around the pool, incorporating a fire ring and grate for cool evenings of conversation. We also installed a variety of plants, including nandina, purple fountain grass, variegated loriapi and camellia, and a complementary rich brown mulch, to help keep weeds at bay.

Fresh Sod for an Evans Home

We installed more than 2000 sq. ft. of Grand Zoysia sod in the front yard of this Evans, GA, home, enhancing the curb appeal and protecting the soil bed from erosion. Zoysia grass is a popular choice in the CSRA for its low nutrient and water requirements and natural weed resistance.

At Between the Edges, our lawn care professionals prepare the soil bed using the same techniques that are used when seeding is done. This process will ensure that the sod is not just laying on the ground but that the roots are able to take hold firmly as they should.
