Landscape

Attractive landscaping can increase the value of your home from 18-25%, so say both the National Association of Realtors and the American Nursery and Landscape Association.

 

But beyond raising your property value, proper landscaping can cool your home in summer and insulate it in winter.A well-planned patio increases your living space and provides a wonderful place to entertain. Flowering shrubs, roses & perennials can make you feel as if you are on “vacation in your own backyard.”

 

 

 

With over 50 years of experience, Gumpf Gardens’ Landscape has designed and installed all types of projects.

 

Below you can see the “Before” after the homeowner had built a new garage – building debris and excavated dirt.

Although retaining walls and patios are very popular (Gumpf’s builds a lot of them!),there are times when only a deck will fit the property.

Below you will see a sample of our work.This deck is done with the newer composite lumber – “artificial wood” – that will last longer than wood and will not splinter or need to be stained or treated.
