Even though the summer season is still around the corner, with Memorial Day weekend behind us and sunny weather here to stay, we can't help but feel the excitement of patio season ramping up! We have been finishing up some EPIC projects; check out this outdoor fireplace and paver patio, that is ready for outdoor entertaining! Not only have our teams been finishing up some design and build work, with the addition of the Ken-Cut Landscape crews, our teams have also been working on plenty of HOA maintenance, getting those clean and satisfying lawn stripes on properties around Indy!

Speaking of maintenance, June 13th is National Weed Your Garden Day, so if you need a reason to get out there and get some maintenance done, here is your sign! If you prefer to let the Pros handle it, we are here to help. As time flies us ahead to summer, we hope you take time to enjoy your great outdoor spaces with some fun yard games or an easy weeknight dinner on the patio. Enjoy these sunny warm days, and call us if you get an itch to overhaul your outdoor space to craft the perfect hangout for your outdoor living.
When our team starts a new project, usually our task is to create a beautiful oasis from scratch for our clients in their outdoor spaces. This project was unique in that the beautiful oasis already existed, we just had to frame the backyard view with the perfect landscape design.

Project Features: 
  • Large tri-level concrete patio 
  • Lined pool with a sun-shelf, deck jets, and color-changing LED lights
  • Ornamental pond with waterfall
  • Multi-level retaining walls 
Check out the video above to see more details of this project!
We are so excited to welcome Mike McQueen to our team as one of our Account Managers! Mike comes to us with a passion for the landscape industry and 17 years of landscape experience, 8 of which he was running his own business. His favorite projects are the ones where clients trust their landscape design team to come up with a plan that is best for them, and he loves to see their reaction when the design comes out better then they could have imagined. As an Account Manager, Mike enjoys making sure every project is done with high standards in mind and encourages each employee to bring their best self to the job. You may see him working on maintenance for HOAs in your community so feel free to say hi! When he's not working, Mike enjoys coaching his sons' sports teams and spending time outdoors camping and fishing with his family. Welcome to the team Mike, we are happy to have you!
Make the most of warm days outside with these ideas for fun in the backyard!
Kan Jam
A spin on the classic game of corn hole. Toss a frisbee from one side of the playing field with the goal of getting the frisbee in the kan slot or dunking it! Easy to play, tricky enough for hours of fun and great for all ages! Find it here.
Giant Jenga
Bring this indoor tabletop game to life outside with a larger then life version. Buy one pre-built or if you are handy, you can make your own Jenga set using 2 x 4s. Bonus: Write fun challenges on each block for added outdoor fun challenge. (For instance: Run in the sprinkler, jump in the pool, hoola hoop for one minute, do a cartwheel).
Obstacle Course
Build your own with things from around the house or buy a few items to build to your liking! Running an obstacle course works balance, agility, speed and strategy and, its always good for some instant smiles. Consider DIY ideas for balance beams (pool noodles, lumber, ropes), hurdles (tree stumps or pool blow up toys), ring toss or bean bag toss, tunnels (large cardboard boxes can do the trick), egg on a spoon balancing, potato sac racing in a pillow case, and hopscotch. The possibilities and variations are endless!
Congratulations to our Employee of the Month, Greg Prosch!
This month we are happy to honor Maintenance Assistant, Greg Prosch as our employee of the month! Greg came to us from the Ken-Cut acquisition, having spent almost 6 years with their team. His knowledge of the properties he maintains and the schedule he keeps for services as been invaluable as we have transitioned these properties under our management. He is already ready to jump in to help when something needs to get done. Not only is he a great asset out in the field, his mechanical skills has helped keep our trucks and machinery equipment in tip-top shape. Thank you for all you do for us Greg!
Lobster Roll Panzanella

A salad with plenty of crunchy, buttery croutons and delicious lobster makes for a crowd pleasing summer dish! Leftover hamburger or hot dogs buns work great for the croutons.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar 
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper 
  • Juice of 1 lemon (about 2 tablespoons) 
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved 
  • 6 toasted, buttered split-top potato buns, torn into hunks (see Cook's Note)
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked until crispy and crumbled 
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced on a bias 
  • 2 ribs celery, thinly sliced 
  • 3/4 pound cooked lobster meat, chopped 
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and cubed 
Instructions
  1. Mix together the mayonnaise, tarragon, vinegar, garlic powder, salt, pepper and lemon juice in a large bowl. Add the tomatoes, buns, bacon, scallions and celery to the dressing and toss to coat. Fold in the lobster and avocado. Serve immediately!
  • This is a great use for leftover buttered hot dog (or hamburger) buns from a cookout. If you don't have any leftovers, spread 3 tablespoons softened unsalted butter on the buns and toast in a 375 degree F oven for 10 minutes.
