Backyard Transformations

Lichtenberg Landscaping creates custom designs to bring a stylish outdoor oasis to life.

The backyard is no longer simply something to be mowed. With the help of a creative team, it can be transformed into an outdoor living space as comfortable as one’s living room. 

“People want a user-friendly space with ample room to entertain and enjoy,” Steve Lichtenberg, owner of Lichtenberg Landscaping of Mason explains. “This is achieved by designing separate outdoor rooms with good circulation and flow between the spaces and defined functions such as a casual sitting area, a bar area, a dining area and fireplace or fire pit.”

Lichtenberg Landscaping offers installation services including outdoor living spaces, paver patios, bars and grills, fireplaces and fire pits, pergolas, landscape installation and outdoor lighting. Steve tells us that outdoor living spaces and lighting have become increasingly popular.

“The lighting creates the ambiance, sets the mood and brings your scene to life at night,” he explains. “When the lights pop on they make you want to go outside and enjoy your beautiful space.”

Client Melissa A. Brunner recently had a pool installed and Lichtenberg Landscaping helped tie all of the pieces of their outdoor living space together including the installation of a pergola, outdoor bar and grill, dining area, fireplace and full-color lighting on her property.

“I knew it was going to be beautiful,” Melissa tells us. “However, the finished result has exceeded my expectations. Lichtenberg Landscaping has truly given us an oasis in our own backyard.” 

The planning process includes many steps and any large project, such as a pool installation, should be scheduled at least one year in advance. 

First, Lichtenberg Landscaping will meet with the client to collaborate on ideas, analyze the site for the best location and consider drainage and sun orientation. An outdoor living plan is then tailored to the client’s needs, designed to complement their home and its surroundings. 

“I put a lot of thought and time into every custom design. I want to understand how the homeowner will use each area,” Steve explains. “This enables us to create the proper space for all elements and deliver functional, resort-style living.”

A pool project, as pictured, requires setting the pool elevation, excavation, pool deck and patio installations, landscaping, lighting, irrigation and sod. Additionally, coordination between all contractors is essential. 

“It’s a good idea to have meetings ahead of time with the pool company, landscape architect, excavator, electrician and plumber to get everyone on the same page,” Steve explains. 

The pool company finishes the pool interior while the other contractors complete the above requirements, and voilà—a beautiful pool and unique outdoor living space is created! 

Now in its 23rd year of business, Lichtenberg Landscaping offers experience, creative vision and quality workmanship.

“We have the experience to know what works and what doesn’t, and how to do it right the first time,” Steve explains. “I believe our design work sets us apart from others in the industry.”
