Well, have you have heard of “stay-cations?
Smart people have been investing in their property and finding ways to have the same experience they would at a fancy resort right in their own backyard.
About 18 months ago we saw a trend where customers came back—somewhere around 2-3 years after we had done a huge detailed landscape design for them, and were now ready to take the leap. Those investment dollars could have gone to a new beach condo, or a camper or RV.
They told me, “we decided not to do the beach thing”, or “we can travel on our points whenever we want the beach or skiing”, and ” its wasn’t going to be worth the maintenance and service headaches having an RV”. At the end of all that time, the common theme was to have more of that resort style at home. Family is the most important element. Being able to entertain at home saves time, there is not traffic, there are no calls from an HOA that there is an emergency, no HOA fees, no TSA delays, no parking fees, no maintenance headaches. And if you already travel 3-4 days a week all you want to do is get back home. Let us make it easy and enjoyable.
Here is a survey that shows the popularity of items being invested in that turn backyards into resorts. Are any of these on your list? Do you notice them when you go away on vacation? Why not have them at home?
I recently attended the Techo-Bloc Contractor Showcase when it rolled into Annapolis. WOW! 3 semi’s of materials and a rocking presentation by “Paver Pete” and friends. A single day wasn’t enough to get my head around all the cool combinations we now have available. We studied every element of what you’ll see next. We did workshops on using better tools, being safer, underground structures like drainage and permeability, and best practices for installers.
Take a look at these shots from a build completed by Techo-Bloc just last year.
It all starts with a phone call. Tell me you want a resort style back yard and I’ll bring in the Landscape Architect who will get all the details right so it fits your needs, works in the space provided, and has that WOW factor I just experienced. Then we’ll bring the best technicians and craftsmen to grade, create drainage, stabilize and install the finest paver materials available. This can be yours! Your call means we’ll start NOW!
