August sure flew by this year - it's hard to understand where the time went! Last month, we were kept extremely busy with more bathroom renovations, a back yard blitz, installation of fire doors, convex mirrors and letterboxes, patching walls, tiling, removing graffiti and even building a pergola, which you will see below. All this made for a busy, yet rewarding month!
Back Yard Blitz: Nestled in St Andrews
Whether your dream back yard is designed for entertaining a crowd or just relaxing with a good book, our landscaping and remodeling pros will pull out all the stops to transform it into a beautiful Oasis. This stunning home was in need of a back yard blitz, which is exactly what our team did. We removed the swimming pool, as well as the deck and surrounding plants before replacing it with gorgeous Eureka Kikuyu turf. We constructed a garden border and introduced some stunning native plants, bringing warmth to this back yard.
Did you know
Swedish people have a way of living similar to feng shui, it's called Lagom which translates to "just enough" and the picture below is an example of that. The Lagom decor is all about relaxation and balance. It revolves around muted colours, mixing textures like faux furs and metal to bring in visual interest, and bringing in nature through greenery and wooden elements. Another aspect of Lagom is having less furniture but of higher quality, so that it can get passed down to the next generation and reduce waste. It's a very simple way of life and has become a huge trend in North America.
