Heating Things Up

For this full backyard renovation our client wanted an outdoor entertaining space they could use nearly year ’round, so a fire feature had to be part of the plan. Here you can see how we excavated to create a terrace with steps leading to the fire pit. Perfect for gathering family and making s’mores!

More photos from this project are coming soon.

Deck Your Halls With Gorgeous Holiday Decor

Creating the right ambiance for your home during the holidays takes planning, patience, attention to all the details and, in many instances, a team of professionals to execute the plan. Designing outdoor and indoor holiday decor is one way to share the spirit of the holidays with family and friends. Our designers meet with you to determine the overall theme of your design, preferred colors and if you would like to include iconic holiday symbols, like reindeer, bells or angels.

Lighting Your Outdoor Spaces

First the Landfare Ltd. team evaluates the trees in your yard, their position and limb structure. The focus is on the trees because they are the base for all lighting. We design and overall plan to light trees, doorways and other structures on your property.

We use only LED bulbs to create brightness and holiday magic. Depending on the design, we select white or colored bulbs. We especially like the icy brilliance of blue bulbs in a winter landscape. Tree limbs are wrapped with strings of bulbs – we never use netting. After the holiday season, we remove all lights and store them for the next year.

Entrances can be lit with bulbs or with indirect lighting. We custom create swags and wreaths that match back to your design as well as bountiful seasonal urns.

Indoor Design

It is important to create the perfect holiday effect for your home. From outdoor lighting and decor to holiday decor in the rooms of your home, we want to create a feeling of wonder and holiday peace. The design theme we use on the exterior of your home is brought inside. Here is where details are critical – each piece plays a part in creating the ambiance you want for your family and guests.

Vaulted ceilings beg for massive Christmas trees, and our team has the equipment needed to perfectly execute our design plan.  Mantels, stairways and tabletops are used to bring your holiday theme to life.

Aged To Perfection

Landfare Ltd. wants homeowners to have the landscape design and outdoor living spaces of their dreams.

For this project, our client wanted a new custom designed pergola that would blend perfectly with the existing patio. The design includes a lath ceiling with built-in ceiling fan. To create that not-new look we intentionally aged the wood structure by hand.

Fireplaces

A warm fire sets the ambiance on a chilly fall night. Just picture relaxing by your custom designed fireplace chatting with friends and sipping a glass of wine. Perfect! John Spayde, President and Designer at Landfare Ltd. starts his design plan by talking with clients to learn how they will most often use their fireplace: game day supporting actor, s’mores with the kids, or relaxing retreat.  Then he begins the design process, making sure all elements enhance your outdoor living spaces and the ways you choose to use them.

Details Define Each Project

Front porches and patios offer wonderful opportunities to display containers filled with plants and flowers. At Landfare Ltd, each element must support the overall property design. John Spayde, Landfare Ltd. principle and designer, knew this client’s front entrance deserved something dramatic and elegant to welcome visitors.  These Italian urns are the perfect contrast for this French country home’s limestone porch and steps.  The featured boxwoods are 28 years old, trained and trimmed to perfection – not a random choice at all!. Seasonal flowers and greenery work with foliage and blooms throughout the property. It is all of these details that bring the best out in your landscape.

 

Climbing Hydrangea: One of Our Favorites

For this home, we added climbing hydrangea to the chimney to create a balance between the tree to the right and the lower landscaping details. Although the hydrangea was not in bloom at the point this photo was taken, it will feature large, fragrant clusters of white flowers that bloom in late spring and summer against a backdrop of dark green, heart-shaped foliage. These vines climb columns, trees, and other supporting structures. A climbing hydrangea plant grows 30 to 80 feet tall, but it tolerates pruning to shorter heights.

 

Quiet Pride™

Landfare Ltd. has a definite vision for the outdoor living spaces we design for our clients. Part of that vision is that all of our work must enhance the esthetic of each client’s home. Our designs and all the elements we incorporate – water features, pools, spas, landscape – all work together to project the pride our clients have for their homes. We never create trendy or ostentatious designs that conflict with the home’s architecture and property.

While discussing this vision as a team, we agreed that we really project Quiet Pride™ in both our clients’ homes and our own work.

Work Continues During Every Season

No matter the weather, we continue working on our projects. Our Landfare Ltd. team is ready for anything! The exterior renovation of this river front home is moving forward, with stonework nearly complete. We like documenting before and during photos so you can see where we started and the ultimate, beautiful outcome. Can’t wait for our landscape design to be installed. It will be amazing!

Custom Design & Build

Custom built wrought iron railing is being installed at our client’s terraced outdoor living space. Landfare Ltd. created a total redesign of their property. The lower terrace did not exist until we excavated about six feet of dirt to create a whole new entertaining space, including a pool!

 

 

If you look at the window you can see how we incorporated the existing brick into our design. That’s what we mean by Capturing Nature Through ™.

Quiet Pride™

 

Landfare Ltd. has a definite vision for the outdoor living spaces we design and build for our clients.

And our work must always enhance the client’s home and improve how they enjoy their home. All the elements we incorporate – water features, pools, spas, landscape – all work together to project the pride our clients have for their homes. We never create trendy or ostentatious designs that conflict with the home’s architecture and property.

While discussing this vision as a team, we agreed that we really project Quiet Pride™ in both our own work and our clients’ homes.
