Before starting work on this project, this property sat dormant for more than 10 years, says Jeff Stroupe, owner of Landscapes by Terra.

The property featured a 5,200 square-foot driveway fitted with 30-year-old pavers, a 170-foot-long dry creek bed, deteriorating hardscapes and dying plants all around.

To address these challenges, Landscapes by Terra proposed reducing landscape beds in favor of more green space.

The client wanted to reuse the existing pavers, which caused extra work for crews as they needed to clean the dry concrete off and inspect each paver by hand before reinstalling them.

Before crews reinstalled the driveway pavers, they dug a foot down to remove the previous base and start over. The new base and materials installed in the driveway allow excess water to flow directly into the dry creek bed.

There was added pressure on this project because the property can be seen on television during the Memorial Tournament, a PGA Tour event held at nearby Muirfield Village Golf Club.

“The most advantageous view of that property from the golf course is the tee box on hole 18,” Stroupe says. “(The cameras) shoot directly on the south side of this house. So, we put a lot of hardscapes over there.”

The homeowner spent several years incrementally replacing the deteriorating hardscapes and plants throughout the property before bringing in Landscapes by Terra. The contractor then rendered a master plan and got to work. (Photo: Landscapes by Terra)

The property slopes towards the front of the home, creating flooding issues. To overcome that challenge, Landscapes by Terra strategically directed water away from the home toward a large dry creek bed. (Photo: Landscapes by Terra)
