Whitefish Lake Landscape Project – Award Winning

Lakes-edge10-220x146May Lawn & Home Care Inc. would like to congratulate Mindful Designs Inc. on the Parade of Homes 2015 award winning project.  We had the opportunity to work with the home owner, Marty at Mindful, and Archer Excavation to tweak the established design to fit in with the property’s finishes and the owner’s desires.  Our project manager, Trebor Schwada did amazing job of juggling schedules, managing the site’s difficult access, and keeping an eye on the finish touches needed on this beautiful home.  This site did have a difficult access and we had to work in conjunction with all the trades to complete in a timely manner.   Being a summer highlight project for Trebs’s crew to work on with all the stone stair/walkway/retaining wall work, grading, lighting, planting, erosion control, and irrigation.




Rapid Finished Season-Landscape

Wow that was a quick shut down to the 2014 landscape season.  In three and weeks it went from sunny 70 degrees to 12 degrees.   Below is a snap shot of the end of year.

Friday- weather was sunny-we finished grading and seeding a 24000 sq ft lawn and 15000 sq ft native area-project ready for grass to grow in 2015

Saturday-weather started sunny and progressed to overcast-we worked on flagstone front entrance setting stone and getting base prepared

Sunday-weather was down pouring rain and cold – we finished final cuts and washing sand joints at 4:00 pm – down to the wire

Monday– weather is cold low of 12 degrees – went to job site to clean up – ground was frozen solid – shovels were useless

landscape-lighting-design-03It is amazing how fast new technology can find its place amongst our lives.  May Lawn & Home Care Inc. is always looking for new ways to help make your landscaping better – not just aesthetically but also in energy savings wise.  Whether it be a water saving smart irrigation controller(only controller we install), well placed trees for shading, or LED lighting. We have been installing LED landscape lighting for the past 4 years.  Why LED lighting?

-bulbs last longer, some manufactures warranties are 15 years(when coupled with their transformers)

-lighting hue selections, manufactures offer different hues of light to match existing lights or change lighting effect

-LED lights use less electricity, not only means a smaller power bill but less in wire and transformer costs due to less voltage needed at each fixture

Landscape lighting can add to the safety of your property by illuminating walkways as the nights grow longer and can add visibility and depth to the landscape at night.  May Lawn & Home Care Inc. has been awarded the Kichler Lighting Pro status through our numerous years of experience installing their fixtures.  We not only offer Kichler landscape lights but FxLuminaire and Cast.  If between these three suppliers we can not find a lighting fixture that will meet your style and needs we can custom make lights.

187This light was created using a reclaimed timber and a LED fixture from Kichler.  It matches the architectural highlights of the home and fits very nicely into the landscape.

Give us a call or email to set up an appointment to discuss your lighting needs.
