The landscape tamer ...

How is your backyard looking? Mine appears to be awfully neglected these days. I have weeding to do, plants that need to be moved, retaining walls that need to be built, lawn furniture that needs to be dusted off ... oh, it is a long list! If only I could have someone come in and take care of it all for me.

If I ever did actually hire someone, I would call Chris Drislane of DesignScapes. I recently interviewed him for an article about his business on Lynnfield Patch. Read it here. Along with a solid education in landscape design, he has the eye of an artist (plus a crew and lots of heavy machinery) and can transform any outdoor space into a backyard oasis. I can only imagine how nice it would be afterwards, to simply go outside, put my feet up on the lounge chair (with drink in hand) and just enjoy the well-manicured view!

Do you like to enlist help or do-it-yourself when it comes to landscape design?
