One of the most inviting but underused features of a great backyard is the garden path or walkway. Whether they join your patio with distant areas of the yard or truly go through your garden, they can add a sense of natural warmth that can enhance any yard.

But if you are going to do it, do it right. First, you should begin with a “theme” or approach in mind. Here are some ideas:

Garden Path “Themes”

Add Some Mystery – For yards with tall grass and shrubs, or thicker, more natural gardens, avoid a straight (and boring) garden path. Instead, use curves and corners to accentuate the natural state of things and add some mystery to your yard.

The Direct Approach – For the no-nonsense, utilitarian yards com...

For many living at the Jersey Shore, the most important part of the house is not actually in the house. It’s the backyard.

It’s easy to understand why. The backyard is the place we’re most likely to entertain guests and the place we go to escape from the world.

If you’re looking to add some privacy to your property, Leyland Cypress, Cupressus × leylandii (syn. ×Cupressocyparis leylandii, Callitropsis × leylandii, ×Cuprocyparis leylandii or ×Hesperotropsis leylandii), is a tree that we recommend. We do a lot of planting along the Jersey Shore and Leyland Cypress will tolerate harsh salt spray and wind. In our experience they often do well near bay areas.

Leyland Cypress is a coniferous evergreen tree that grows at a fast rate. Leyland Cypress can grow up to 70 feet tall and 10 – 15 wide. They are mainly used for informal hedges, however with proper maintenance they can be pruned back for a formal look. A very nice looking tree with brown bark and dark gr...

If you’re thinking about doing a patio and not sure where to start let us help you. We have a lot of customers here in NJ asking us if stamped concrete is a good alternative to using pavers. Although stamped concrete can give you the look of pavers, brick, natural stone or tile it will not perform as well as pavers in our harsh climate. We highly recommend using pavers for driveways, patios and walkways. If you’re thinking of using stamped concrete here’s a few reasons why you should consider pavers.

The manufacturer we recommend, Techo-Bloc guarantees their pavers for life against cracking, you will not get that kind of guarantee with stamped concrete. Stamped concrete is a poured slab with expansion joints that has th...
