Ron says “As president and founder of Stewart Lawn and Landscape I know we are obligated to our clients to provide them with great garden design ideas”. ” Stewart landscape began in 1987 when I was 18 years old. I am actively involved in its operation today and we are always trying to improve the outdoor room concept by using materials and creating back yard solutions that have a huge impact stemming from our money saving, low cost ideas”.
We started by cutting grass and doing lawn maintenance. Gradually, we began to offer back yard design solutions. A few years later and now Stewart Landscaping has a tree farm as well. “It seemed like easy work,” joking. “Its not easy, the good things in life never come easy!”
“My love of landscaping came from a summer job at 16 and my grandmother. She had a green thumb and she got me interested in plants. Grandma was a member of the landscape design council for the Washington D.C. area and would take me to design seminars when I was young. My uncle had a doctorate in natural resource management. I was surrounded by it and I was fascinated.”
“At Stewart landscaping and design we have a love of out door living spaces accomplished through well planned landscape design,” say’s Ron.
A outdoor living space will create an extension of your home for entertaining yourself, let alone your family and friends. It will be a cherished backyard vacation spot to relax and enjoy the lifestyle you deserve!
A experienced landscape designer offers an huge variety of outdoor living space ideas designed to connect your backyard with walkways, patios, and decks for the best outdoor experience without the usual outrageous costs. Of course you can be a kid in a candy store and max out all the amenities or you can have a huge impact with a low cost if you get a experienced landscape designer. Many landscape architects or designers over do the landscape design. While it’s not on purpose, they don’t consider your budget enough to help create a landscape design that will actually get installed. You don’t want a piece of art you will hang on your wall and never implement!
Great outdoor living designs typically include outdoor fireplaces, outdoor fire pits, outdoor kitchens and combining all those with the right landscape plantings for the shade or sun. We can create designs integrated with your home to amplify, expand, and beautify your outdoor garden living space.
Depending on your wants and needs, parts of your outdoor garden room can cost anywhere from $5,000 to the ultimate garden space for over $150,000. If all you want is a small patio, a tall fescue lawn area, and a some Anne Arundel county native landscape plantings then you’ll fall on the lower end of the cost range. However, if you’re looking for a backyard solution for a complete garden room with barbecue grill station, an outdoor fireplace, a covered patio with a pavilion or pergola, and a custom stone masonry steps and walls, your budget will need to rise dramatically. Custom hardscape projects like this can cost similar to any indoor remodeling project, but creating your dream backyards will add to the value of your home.
Recently in the last few years client are starting to use their backyard retreats as much as the inside rooms. A great landscape design company will build your patio to extend your living space beyond the walls of your home. Austin from Stewart Landscaping said “We will usually create an exciting outdoor room living room and use materials durable enough to withstand the elements, yet elegant enough to satisfy any taste and do it in a money saving way.”
Some typical projects include landscape designs for small garden spaces. Usually, these small outdoor garden rooms can create a huge impact without blowing the budget. The money savings comes from the smaller scale “less materials” but then we have a great small courtyard patio design to create a cozy reading area. Or a real popular design has a small built in grilling station that has the back part of the kitchen island raised up to double as a eating space or a bar counter for an entertainment area when you’re not grilling.
