Do you want to make a place for your kids or pets to enjoy? Do you want a yard that requires little maintenance or do you enjoy maintaining your yard more often? Fencing, Pathways, patios, garden beds, and even grass options affect the function of your landscape. A beautiful landscape can increase the value of your home in many ways.

Water System Installations
Adding a pond or fountain to your yard is no problem with Nexstep. We’ve done many water system installations and the results are amazing. Running water can really make a space feel relaxing and pleasing to look at. Nexstep can also install sprinkler systems to ensure your lawn and gardens are watered evenly. Sprinkler systems can be set with timers so they automatically water your grass and gardens at certain times of the day.
Flower Beds, Trees, and Shrubs
Flower Beds, Trees, and Shrubs can play an important part in your landscape. Certain trees and shrubs can help keep noise out of your yard but still look aesthetically pleasing. Garden beds can be used to accent features of your landscape such as gazebos, pathways, and fencelines. Warm colours in your garden beds like yellow, orange and red can make a yard look and feel inviting and welcoming. Cool colours in your garden beds like blue and purple can make your yard feel more relaxing. Nexstep can help you decide what would best fit your landscape and which plants suit your vision for your yard.
Final and Re-Grade
Grading ensures that water flows away from your house to prevent flooding and water damage to your home. Final Grade needs to be done before grass seed or sod is laid. If you have found that there are spots where water is pooling, a re-grade can fix that. Nexstep can help you protect your home with experienced teams who can efficiently and effectively grade your landscape.
Retaining walls can add beautiful depth and dimensions to your landscape. They help with controlling soil erosion, maintaining slopes, and yard stabilization. You can have walls made out of concrete, wood, stone, stack stone, brick and modular blocks. You can have curved, straight, tiered or leveled walls and the materials come in many colours, shapes and sizes. Nexstep can help you best use Retaining walls to your advantage. With our knowledge and experience and your vision we can help you make a beautiful and effective landscape.
