Lewis Landscape Services,

Constructing an illuminated outdoor
living area while the homeowners are miles away
ith an outdated, muddy backyard as their slate, Lewis Landscape Services transformed the
area into an inviting space for 24/7 entertainment. The homeowners wanted to minimize the
landscaping, ﬁx the drainage issues and have an outdoor living area they could enjoy year round.
Because the clients were at their second home in California during the entire project, Brad Steyska, project manager, made sure they were on board with his design for this space. They sent the clients photos of
the progress almost daily, as well as ﬁnal photos at the end of the job.
The crew installed a three-tiered paver patio, steps, seat wall, natural gas ﬁre pit,
sod lawn, rock walls, rock bubbler water feature, drainage and irrigation system. The

team also added an outdoor lighting system using Kichler Design Pro LED ﬁxtures.
"The result was a complete landscape and outdoor living area that the clients
could not only use but also enjoy and really entertain in," says Jim Lewis, owner of
of the pro

The clients were so pleased with the redesign that they asked Lewis and his
team to handle Phase 2 of this project, which included the front yard and driveway.
