A Driveway with Style: Paver Driveway and Landscaping by Between The Edges

Over time, even a well-maintained concrete driveway will show signs of wear. This Harlem homeowner replaced their concrete driveway with a paver driveway with concrete border, resulting in instantly elevated curb appeal. Our Between the Edges team used Roma Autumn pavers to complement the brick on the home. To add additional dimension, we planted both Sunshine Ligustrums and dogwoods on both the right side of driveway and front corner of the property.

Elevating a North Augusta Yard with Custom Touches

This North Augusta yard went from standard to custom with a variety of hardscaping and landscaping updates.

The update begins in the front yard, where we planted three crepe myrtles and added fresh mulch. The Between The Edges team also installed paver curbing to define the flower beds and limit the growth of grass and weeds in the beds. This curbing is a perfect match to the paver walkway we installed in the homeowners’ backyard. This pathway connects the backyard gate to the patio and pool area. In the backyard, we also laid Zoysia sod, a great choice for Southern landscaping due to its low water requirements, slower growth and weed-resistent density.

Front Yard Improvements in North Augusta

We helped these North Augusta homeowners make improvements to their front yard that make their outdoor space more attractive and protected from future erosion. First, we installed a curved retaining wall and cleaned up adjacent landscaping beds, including installing fresh mulch.

The home also had a drainage ditch that was overrun with weeds and aesthetically unappealing. We cleared out the ditch and then installed a weed barrier fabric and rip rap. (Rip rap is a natural rock that is intentionally placed to protect soil from erosion due to run-off.)

When planning updates to your outdoor space, it’s important to consider the natural grades of your yard, including opportunities for visible or potential erosion. Between The Edges can help you with erosion control in Augusta, design effective solutions, or adapt to run-off patterns impacting your property. We are the CSRA’s retaining wall specialists, helping clients resolve a variety of erosion and drainage issues. Do you have questions about your own yard?

Adding Function and Visual Interest in North Augusta

We helped these North Augusta homeowners install a retaining wall that runs the length of their home, with paver steps to easily reach the yard. This retaining wall helps prevent runoff and erosion from the landscaped bed into the grass. The area between the screened patio and the retaining wall features a variety of shrubs and flowering plants, nestled along a flagstone walkway.

Can we help you make your yard more functional and attractive? With our many years of landscaping and hardscaping experience, we are full of ideas to help you improve or optimize your space. Give us a call or use our contact form to get the discussion started.

New Walkway in North Augusta Backyard

A steep grade on the side of this North Augusta homeowner’s backyard created an environment ripe for drainage and erosion issues. We worked with the homeowner to create a functional solution with aesthetic appeal. Once complete, we installed two retaining walls with French drains, along with a paver walkway in Roma Sierra. Instead of a muddy mess after rain, now backyard visitors are greeted with a functional path and steps, complemented by freshly planted shrubs.

Modern Outdoor Retreat with Water Views

Our Between the Edges team worked with these Evans homeowners to create their own outdoor oasis, enhancing both the beauty and the functionality of their property. First, we installed 6 x 6 wood steps with paver inserts, to help the homeowners and their guests safely get from their home to the water’s edge. In surrounding areas, we installed complementary hardscaping elements, including paver steps in Roma Sand Dune, a retaining wall, and two wood walls. Finally, we planted a variety of plants: nine sunshine ligustrums, 10 jazz hands, two Japanese ferns, a windmill palm, fountain grass and variegated liriope, all surrounded by river rock.

We are thankful for the opportunity to combine pavers, wood elements and foliage to create a unique space for this family to enjoy. As we approach the holidays, happy thanksgiving to you and your family from our Between the Edges family.

Refreshed Curb Appeal with New Retaining Wall

Retaining walls serve multiple valuable purposes. Not only do they protect against erosion, but they can also create definition on the edge of a lot or within your property as well as create usable level space. This Evans home received a curb appeal upgrade with the addition of a retaining wall, new centipede sod, and new bushes and mulch. Twelve sunshine ligustrums add visual appeal in the landscaping bed that runs alongside the retaining wall, and fresh sod is ready to host leaf piles in the fall and sprinkler romps in the summer.

At Between the Edges, we have the knowledge and experience to organically integrate retaining walls, landscaping, hardscaping and sodding into your outdoor spaces. Whether you need a single patio or retaining wall installation, or surrounding areas, or whether you have a multi-faceted vision in mind for your space, we can help. Call Between the Edges today to set up a consultation.

Three-tiered Retaining Wall

The edge of this Grovetown property was plagued by sandy overgrowth that intensified erosion with heavy rain (see the first picture). In order to protect the landscaping from further erosion, Between the Edges worked with the homeowners to design and build a three-tiered paver retaining wall in the buff. Between the tiers, we planted bushes that, once mature, will provide additional privacy and visual interest. Surrounding the new retaining wall, we planted Bermuda sod to replace the grass damaged by water runoff.

If your home is plagued by erosion during heavy rains, a retaining wall may prove to be an invaluable landscaping improvement. Between the Edges is Augusta’s retaining wall specialist and we can help you with erosion control in Augusta. Call us today to discuss your retaining wall needs.

Expanding an Outdoor Hardscape

Newer construction homes typically include a patio, deck, or screened porch. However, these elements are rarely built with the specific lot’s layout, proportions or views in mind, and the impact can be underwhelming. We helped these Aiken homeowners organically expand their outdoor hardscape to meet the needs of their lifestyle and mesh with the surrounding landscaping. The end product included a paver patio with a custom fire pit, as well as a path connecting the patio to the driveway, eliminating the need to trudge through mud or wear a path in the grass when going between the two areas.

Simple extensions of your current outdoor hardscaping can make a huge impact. Call Between the Edges today, and let us help you install a new paver patio in Augusta, GA that will increase the value and usability of your outdoor spaces.

Fall Evenings Outdoors at This Aiken Home

Fall weather is ideal for outdoor gatherings with friends and family, and in this unique year, the value of spending time outdoors at your own home is even greater. At this Aiken home, they expanded their outdoor hardscape to include a new walkway and paver patio. The paver patio features two seating walls, to help maximize outdoor seating for larger gatherings and a fire pit – to make s’mores on a cool fall evening.
