Enjoy the start to finish timelapse movie for the winner of this years Spruce Up From The Ground Up Chadd Carver.  
We had a lot of fun working with Chadd and I think we came together to give him what he wanted and created a great landscape design to the front of his home.  The side by side edging really stands out and makes a statement! nice choice!  He also did not want to worry about blowing mulch out of the beds when the leaves are falling so he chose the River Rock gravels for all the beds With some accent boulders.  Among the Japanese Maple and Weeping Willow Trees were Daylilies, Astilbe, Grasses, Allium, Ferns, and Coralbells.  Then for some winter color we added some Boxwood across the front.  All in all it turned out great and both parties are very happy.  This is something that we enjoy doing for the decatur community and can not wait until next year when we can help another one of you lucky residents.  So keep listening or checking in with us on the website to know when your next opportunity will be to get Spruced Up by From The Ground Up!!
