Waterfall and Fish Pond
This backyard project was one of the first jobs Lone Pine Landscaping began with. The customer always wanted a waterfall and decorative fish for her yard, but didn't know where to begin. Now, she has fish and plants and the sound of running water every time she steps outside!
A total transformation! These clients got tired of the prickly junipers taking up so much space, and they just couldn't get any grass to grow in this area. So we got rid of the dirt and mud and installed a beautiful brick walkway and completely renovated their landscaping with drought-tolerant plants.
Walkway before work began. Large junipers on right; phone lines run down entire length of walkway.
Landscape bricks laid on 4" of base covered by 1/4" mason's sand.

Mowing this hillside was dangerous--and almost ended up with the homeowner rolling their mower down the hill into a water retention area. So we completely eliminated any mowing and added some decorative terraces with plenty of room to plant and landscape in the future.
Spring and Summer Flower Garden
Lone Pine Landscaping's very first customer! A previous company filled this small landscape bed with shrubs that grew entirely too large and hid a 6-foot fountain! We kept things simple and decorative--now the fountain is clearly visible, and the previous mess is replaced with a beautiful flower bed that blooms different flowers from early spring to late summer.
