A New Build Becomes Home

In the fall of 2015 Jan & Todd’s new Bearspaw home was nearing completion and it was time to think about having the landscaping done. They had used Assiniboine Lights and Landscapes to do their annual Christmas lights for a few years with great success, so they decided to give them a call.

Jan and Todd met with an Assinibione associated landscape designer to work out a landscape plan. There were some elevation issues, as the home sat higher than the driveway, which had to be considered. It was decided that a tiered natural stone retaining wall and aggregate stone walkways would be built. “They did a wonderful job with getting the proper rock that matches our house. It just looks like everything belongs,” said Jan.

Assiniboine met with the general contractor as well as the sprinkler installers to make sure that the whole project went smoothly.

“Assiniboine kept us in the know on all of the costs and updated us on a regular basis as to where we were with the price changes associated with our choosing different materials and such throughout the whole process,” said Jan.

“The landscaping brings a sense of being finished to the home. It’s nice coming home to an entrance that looks so grand. The compliments from friends are great as well.”

“Once the sod was laid in the backyard it felt like it was so much bigger. It is a great space to toss a football around or just enjoy the lush greenery.”

Jan and Todd have plans of having Assiniboine back this summer to complete the next phase in their landscaping design plans.

When asked about the crew of workers Assiniboine Lights and Landscapes sent to their home to complete the work Jan said, “they were prompt and on time. The crew was friendly and an absolute joy to have around. They were clean and courteous and weren’t shy to ask questions if they needed input from me. Assiniboine helped us to create a very relaxed space that has a very rustic modern look.”
