Outdoor Luxury Living by Quiet Village Landscaping

The yard is an extension of your living space, so why not make it as functional and liveable as possible? At Quiet Village Landscaping we see the swath of green space around a residence as capital that is often underutilized real estate. Take full advantage of your property by designing an outdoor space that feels more like an additional room than simply a yard. Built-in features like stone or paver fire pits and fireplaces create warmth and welcome use throughout the year, even when the temperatures drop. The benefit of having an open fire for grilling adds functionality to charm.

Sitting walls provide structure to your outdoor space and convenient seating for social gatherings. Our design team balances the functional hardscaping with gorgeous plant and flower selections which soften the feel of your space.  The most memorable outdoor spaces have a mix of both elements. Permanent physical features provide a solid structure and support function while softer elements like plantings, trees, and manicured lawn areas create variety with a palette of colors and textures that change with the seasons.

Utilize your backyard space with design features.

Whether you would like to add structure or softness to your outdoor escape, our team can help. From patios to walkways, pergolas to water features, our goal is to maximize the functionality of your space while adding beauty and serenity that will increase your pleasure and your property value.

SOS, your lawn's cry for help, landscape maintenance

It’s Late Summer… Time to Renovate

SOS, your lawn's cry for help

“Beep-beep-beep, beeeep-beeeep-beeeep, beep-beep-beep.” 

You might recognize Morse Code for SOS, but do you recognize your yard’s cry for help?  Perhaps you have noticed large areas of dying grass, or encroaching weeds and unwelcome varieties of grasses attempting to take your lawn by storm.

If your lawn looks like a dejected patchwork quilt made of burlap and turf…it’s time to renovate.

Now, let’s be practical.  Having the nicest lawn on the block is only most of the reason for renovating.  By springtime, your yard will be covered in a dense, green, healthy growth that resists diseases and chokes out unwanted vegetation.

In our St. Louis climate, August is the optimal time to initiate this four-step process.  First, we test your soil to determine if there are any problems that need special attention.  Next, we eradicate weeds and unwanted vegetation.  The third step includes aeration, overseeding, and fertilizing.  Finally, we top-dress the soil with compost.

Make the grass greener on your side of the fence.  Call us today to schedule your lawn renovation.
