Father’s Day Message because you’re more than just landscape to us.

Uncategorized

Most are fathers. Some are single mothers. Some are grandparents, adult siblings or other family members who stepped up to the world’s largest task,DAD. Whoever it is, there’s a distinct person in your life who resonates the fatherly strength, boundaries and calm steady fortitude that most of us think about when we picture the “perfect Leave it to Beaver delivery style” fatherly life lessons and disciplines which we are presented with and that we all needed to obtain for a successful happy existence. A daunting parenting skill that one day we hope we can simulate well enough to also create good human beings. Father’s day and Mother’s day for that matter, are not about giving elaborate gifts to us adults necessarily.  What they are is a great opportunity to do the little things big.  Maybe you are an #Austin family who follows our blog, instagram or facebook and you’re still saving up for the projects that are worth the fairly substantial investment that quality costs like an #outdoorkitchen or #outdoorliving space? This blog is for you.  This one isn’t about a promotion for anything more than quality time with the ones you love this Sunday.  Take time to look at those old pictures that make you all laugh and smile. You know the ones that were actually printed or barely digital, where someone had horrible hair or someone was in a diaper shirtless. Play a game of charades where you all create the objects to be guessed based upon family inside jokes or favorite vacation spots. Set family goals together and make a time capsule video for next year.  Kids, your father won’t always be here.  You are his legacy so instead of only asking questions that answer your immediate need questions like, how do I check my tire pressure?  This father’s day find out what makes him who he really is by asking questions that are fun to find out the answers to, like…Dad, you have a picture of you and some friend in Arizona in a car in your desk drawer from 72. That picture looks like a fun time. Tell me about it? I promise the gift this father’s day will be mutual if you actually do a couple of these things. #Austin neighbors, you’re more than just landscape to us.

Austin Retaining Wall by #austinluxurylandscapes Anderson landscapes 512-577-2345

Pun intended, there’s a ton of competition out there in the landscape industry.  One thing we found out when nearly everyone else folded up their tents in 2008 was that there are a lot of hobby landscape companies out there. You know…the guys who work 9-5’s somewhere but love to do weekend landscape projects like lay stone over an old concrete pad. Good for them but it’s not good for the home owners.  It’s like asking the weekend bank teller to free lance and do your taxes instead of an experienced CPA knowing you have some old underlying issues.  Probably not wise even though you save some money initially.  It will cost more later when you have to redo it because despite best efforts the expertise and knowledge wasn’t there to prevent some more expensive issues.  #RoundRocklandscaping is one of the most highly sought after areas for stone work so be careful neighbors.  Don’t just hire anyone.  We have nearly 2 decades of experience in the area and our work is there to stay.  From #kitchens to #stonepatios our masons are the best.  Afterall we aren’t just any landscape company, we put our family name on our company because we’re about quality. We look forward to reviewing a project for you soon. 512-577-2345

Smoke’in Hot Stay-cations

We’ve all had those years where life is just too hectic or we’re just tired and a stay-cation is the better summer solution than a vacation.  This year should be the one that you make sure you are ready for the perfect one.  Place to cool off? Place to grill with friends? Place to relax out of the sun while you dry off? A couple focal points of natural vegetation with color and texture throughout the property? If you can’t put a check by any or all of these then you’re reading this blog for a reason and we’re here to help. We’ve been designing and constructing #austin #outdoorliving and #outdoorkitchens for nearly 2 decades in central Texas and we look forward to helping create the perfect backdrop for all your future stay-cations. 512-577-2345

 

 

If you can’t build the Ark, we can build a retaining walls. Both are amazing!

Good morning Austin. or is it? It’s 10:12 in the morning and after watching the news, sloshing your way to work, seeing the stories of all the families displaced in Louisana from the rains and flooding which are now affecting us it’s hard not to think about how they will change things here this time.

One of the great assets of the Central Texas is our varied elevations that give us views independent of each others widows, give us creeks and streams of flow and beauty beyond compare. However, it’s also tough to manage flash flood waters at times and the damage it causes eroding land and structures is costly on so many levels.

Retaining walls have been one of our stong suits for almost two decades.  We are experts at both engineered and non depending on the slope and lay of the property.  We only build quality. We will pass on projects that will not stand the test of time. It’s simply not something we choose to put the Anderson name on.

We primarily utilize large native block that is quarried here in Central Texas for one reason.  It’s here for a reason.  It belongs here.  It stands the test of time here. It’s acclimated to the climate and will not crack, crumble or separate as quickly with our humidity to drought climate like other import stones, woods or artifical products will.  We will and have built concrete retaining walls with beautiful stucco finishes to compliment custom home designs that will also stand the test of time longer than railroad tie retaining walls, which we do not contruct at all.

Obviously life is full of choices and we are glad you are our neighbors here in Central Texas. We hope you stay safe and dry over the next 3 days of anticipated potential flash flooding.  We hope your properties are undamaged and you merely get some overdue snuggle and family time being rained in.  Should you or a neighbor need a retaining wall to protect your investments or homes from flooding or erosion damage we hope you’ll call us first “When quality is your first priorty” 512-577-2345  or find us on Facebook @AustinLuxuryLandscapes.
