LandArts recently completed my yard transformation. We couldn't be happier. My yard was done quickly and on time. We had a lot of work done. New walkways, water feature and lots of plantings. I wanted a low maintenance garden and they provided it. The workers were polite and clean. The landscaper’s expertise was greatly appreciated to help us consider what we needed done. - Jasmin S.

Backyard Transformation – When we decided to transform our backyard from a drab, hot collection of miss-matched plants into a space we would love to use, we needed help with both design and implementation. We contacted Evan Blewett of LandArts based on some website reviews. Evan met with us, walked the property, listened to our ideas, and made suggestions on how to combine hardscapes, plants, and water features to get the upscale feel we wanted with low maintenance options. We decided to replace the existing concrete patio with a handmade stone design, install a water feature and plant over 30 bushes and trees. Evan’s crew worked diligently to complete the work. They were professional, competent and courteous to our family and property. Evan kept us apprised of the progress and finished the job on schedule. It has been a pleasure working with Evan and his crew, they made the entire experience exceptional and we would recommend LandArts without reservation. - Becky W., Apex,NC
We recently moved into a newly built house with little or no landscaping. In addition, the property had runoff, drainage issues and the ground was heavy clay. We interviewed a number of landscapers with not much success. Some didn't show, some wanted to wing it without a design and some just couldn't work within our budget. Then we found Evan Blewett and his company Land Arts In Apex NC. Mr. Blewett and his company design sustainable, low maintenance, and yet dramatic landscaping that can be appreciated and enjoyed from both outside and inside the house. He visited the property several times to get a full appreciation of the topography and then presented us with a design concept and photos of plantings. He showed us what could be accomplished working within our budget. He was able to design so we could do some things in phases and yet still make a major impact with phase 1. The transformation of the property is truly amazing. The property was regraded, gutter run-off redirected, and tons of topsoil added. There were a few surprises during the regrading but Mr. Blewett and his crew found solutions for every problem. In the end, we have a yard with a beautiful water feature, added trees, flowers, grasses, minimized the area that was lawn and all designed with easy maintenance in mind. Everyone associated with Land Arts was professional and worked hard to give us our beautiful yard. We would highly recommend Land Arts to anyone with landscaping needs and plan to call upon them again for phase 2. - Mary M., Cary, NC
