Project Overview

In the beautiful neighborhood of Oakhill Drive in Ann Arbor, Michigan, nestled among the lush greenery, lies a testament to the transformative power of professional landscaping. Initiated in 2023, this project began with a vision of revitalization, guided by the expertise and dedication of our highly skilled team here at Twin Oaks Landscape. With a focus on addressing the homeowner’s challenges and enhancing the aesthetic and functional aspects of this outdoor space, we made it our mission to redefine outdoor living once again.

Project Description

The basis of this project traces back to a referral from one of our highly satisfied landscape design customers. The homeowners for this current project were looking for a comprehensive solution to replacing an aging deck and retaining wall plagued by decay alongside persistent drainage issues leading to standing water. In response, Twin Oaks Landscape suggested an integrated strategy that included reimagining the living space layout and introducing efficient drainage solutions to address the property’s persistent challenges.


Twin Oaks Landscape Solution

As this project progressed, significant milestones paved the path toward transformation. With the onset of work, the homeowners decided to upgrade to premium Unilock materials, elevating the outdoor spaces’ durability and visual appeal. Embracing the mindset of continuous improvement, the scope expanded to include the installation of landscape lighting, saturating the space with ambiance, warmth, and class. We added an elevated garden bed at one of the patios, exemplifying Twin Oaks Landscape’s commitment to personalized solutions tailored to meet the unique needs and preferences of our clients.

 Materials Used

At the heart of this project lay a careful selection of materials thoughtfully chosen to blend durability with visual splendor. Unilock Beacon Hill pavers in the subtle Fossil color, complemented by small rectangular Beacon Hill borders in Charcoal, formed the foundation of the outdoor living areas, conveying an understated elegance. The retaining walls, constructed with Unilock Pisa Smooth XL and accentuated with Unilock Natural Ledgestone, symbolizes craftsmanship and resilience. ProTrade Pathlights and ledge lights were seamlessly integrated to enhance safety and ambiance, casting a gentle glow upon the carefully crafted landscape.

Size and Scope

The magnitude of this project was reflected in its scale and scope, encompassing approximately 1000 square feet of pavers and 300 linear feet of retaining and sitting walls. This substantial task highlighted Twin Oaks Landscape’s focus on quality and its ability to execute projects of varying complexity with precision and finesse.
