Front Yard Landscaping Camas WA
Before we get too far. Let me please thank Linda Meyer owner of LMeyer Design. The landscape design was excellent in all aspects. Here is some further information on Linda’s company.
It was a rainy day when we started excavation. What else is new in SW Washington? In the beginning there was a existing landscape that included mostly lawn. The idea was to create a new front entry. We used Belgard pavers as the pavers for the patio. A sitting area was created to allow our clients to enjoy their neighborhood and the front yard. This was the beginning of the Front yard landscaping Camas WA.
It all started with a big muddy mess after excavation.
After installation of barrier cloth, 4″ 5/8″ minus gravel and screeding with sand, the installation of the paver patio has begun.
The muddy mess is tackled. Underlayment for the Belgard pavers is achieved and installation has started
We then brought in three way soil mix, added irrigation and of course finished the Belgard pavers. Some stone steps were added to allow another entry point to the front door versus using the driveway access.
The patio and landscaping is mostly complete. Note the pots which serve as a focal point in their front yard landscaping.

The gravel pathway needs compaction and a final rake, but we are all done other than a final cleanup. this is what I call a Front Yard Landscaping Camas WA project.

Let’s top this all off with a review from the client from Houzz.
Project Date: October 2017
Project Price: $10,000 – $49,999
Woody’s Custom Landscaping completed a front yard re-landscaping project in October 2017 for us. We had five year old “construction grade” landscaping which were the typical lawn, one tree, and shrubs along the front of the house you get with a new home. Linda Myer of L Myer Design, created a wonderful hidden garden landscape design which included replacing the sidewalk from the driveway to front door with a unique paver patio/sidewalk combination, incorporating shrubs and trees to screen the neighbors driveway, and the complete elimination of a lawn to mow. She recommended three landscaping companies and we received bids from all three.
We selected Woody’s Custom Landscaping for our project for the following reasons: We left a message on their office phone and Woody was prompt in returning the call and setting up an appointment to meet with us; he reviewed our landscape design and agreed that he could install it as designed without problems; he made some suggestions for available options and listened to our desires in selecting options or not; and his bid was lower than the other landscaping companies. Once selected as our landscaper, Woody gave us his personal cell phone number as well as the number of his superintendent Darren. They gave us an anticipated start date about six weeks out which accommodated our schedule as well as theirs. Darin contacted us with an exact start date about a week out and they showed up on that morning with a team and equipment to start the project. Woody’s team was on the project every day until it was completed. Once completed they checked back with us to make sure everything was as requested. We had two issues, one with irrigation and one with a low spot in the patio. Woody immediately sent his irrigation and paver specialists out to address our concerns.
We paid Woody roughly half of the bid price on the first day of work and the final payment on their last day of work. They adjusted the final bill to reflect a $200 savings for not installing a second stone step which was in the design but not required as built. We did not ask for the adjustment, Woody just treated us fairly and adjusted the bill because it was the right thing to do. And that sums up our dealings with Woody and his team: although we had a written contract, a handshake was Woody’s promise and he lived up to that promise in every respect – communications, listening, meeting commitments, quality of workmanship, and finally cost.
We would use Woody’s Custom Landscaping again and can highly recommend them.
