Emerald Isle

Our featured project is located on Emerald Isle, NC and is one of the most ambitious and extensive residential landscaping projects that Yardworks has ever had the pleasure of designing and installing. Our team worked closely with both the homeowners and their builder during the design and installation phases of this project. With 2 large lots and a couple of ponds on the property that required excavation to transform the project our work encompassed several months. Team Yardworks began with the pond fountain (Casco) and pond pumps (Best Aquatic). The stone, rock and boulders that were used in and surrounding the ponds were hand selected in the North Carolina mountains. Once they were delivered the project was underway and a waterfall was also added to the design. There are many retaining walls that help to define the landscape and hardscape spaces within this project. The walls are Techo Bloc Baltimore wall in champlain grey. With the walls completed Yardworks began on the installation of the Marmiro stone Grano silver travertine pool decking, patios and walkways along with the Orca marble pool coping that also includes the face of the infinity pool. The long and winding driveway and parking pads in front of the main living quarters and the guest quarters came next. Utilizing Techo Bloc 3-piece Eva sandalwood and 6”X13” champlain grey border the driveway came to life adding curb appeal to this massive project. Custom manufactured gates and fencing were built and installed by Fences Unlimited. A Hunter irrigation system and deep well were installed by Coastal Turfgrass Systems.

The dock over Bogue Sound that offers beautiful vistas and sunsets has a custom- built gas firepit using Techo Bloc Baltimore wall block and Orca marble caps. During the construction of the gas outdoor fireplace, we used veneer stone, cultured stone hearth and caps along with a custom cut natural stone mantel hand selected in the NC mountains to set the tone of the outdoor living space. Since our clients are avid golfers this project also features two golf holes with tee boxes and putting greens. The putting greens are synthetic turf that was installed by Yardworks. Low voltage outdoor lighting by FX Luminaire using LED bulbs and solid copper fixtures was installed by Lightworks a division of Yardworks. As the job progressed, team Yardworks installed all of the large plant material including several sabal palms, large native trees and shrubbery. Once the project and building were completed our outdoor living space designer took over and created a tropical vibe around the house purchasing Campania containers and transforming the pool deck into a Mediterranean paradise. Our clients are over the moon with the way that their home’s outdoor space brought their vision to life.

What People Say About Us

Yardworks did an amazing job for my family. They were easy to work with and very professional. They transformed my back yard and front yard taking a disaster and turning it into a show piece. While fixing the look of my yard they also corrected rain water drainage problems that I had been experiencing for years. Everyday, I would come home and tremendous progress had been accomplished. The added permeable pavers, a retaining wall, palm trees and other plants, re-sodded my entire yard and added landscaping lights. I will be hiring them again and you should too.

Excellent, quality work. We had our entire backyard re-designed, from a steeply sloped, unusable area to a two-tiered grassy lawn with two tiers of stone walls and stairs. It is gorgeous, and greatly expanded our “real” living space. Chad drew everything out for us, and took charge in designing a perfect layout. We already have them scheduled for another project, and highly recommend them!

I hired Yardworks for an extensive outdoor improvement project. Gabe (the project manager) and his team did an outstanding job. Everyone was knowledgeable and experienced, had great attitudes and were very reasonable in terms of meeting deadlines and budget. The Yardworks team had to work hand-in-hand with others on the project and there were no issues whatsoever; their professionalism was unparalleled and the end result was a finished product that I could not be more proud of. The landscaping, travertine work, wall work, fountain installation, sodding and fence work all were top notch. If you are considering any outdoor project for your home, I encourage you to call Yardworks. They are simply the best in the business.

“We hired Yardworks this year to do a complete makeover of our backyard. It was nearly a six figure project and they handled every aspect from design to implementation. We found their work to be exceptional, on time and within budget. We even had a couple of issues after the job was complete and they rushed right out to the house and immediately took care of our concerns. Without hesitation we would highly recommend using Yardworks!”

“I wanted to say thank you for the crew this morning. I spoke with the crew leader and he answered all of my questions, asked questions about how I wanted certain plants trimmed, provided advice for our roses and garden plants. The other guys were so nice and mentioned how much they like coming to our yard.”

“As a Custom Home Builder and Remodeler, the finished product always bears our name. Diane and I have had the pleasure to work with the Yardworks Staff on numerous landscaping projects that completed and complimented our work. These landscaping projects have ranged in price from several thousand dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars, all completed on time, in budget, and service with a smile. When we are in need of landscaping for any of our projects, Yardworks is our GO TO landscaper, they are the best.”
