For some, a backyard garden is for entertaining. For others, a home garden is a private retreat for personal time. It does not matter if you have a large property or a small one, you can have an exclusive oasis in the Lake Norman area.

Not everyone is cut out to do everything themselves. Do not think that you must not have a green thumb just because you haven’t been able to turn your backyard into a magazine-worthy example. Not everyone can design clothes; yet somehow people manage to come out of the house dressed.

Getting started can be the hardest part. What you need is a personalized blueprint to follow and someone to help get you started.

What You Need for a Blueprint

First, start with your personal list of requirements. Perhaps you want a koi pond or a place for children to play or a perch to observe birds.

Second, gather pictures of the types of gardens you admire. Do you fancy lots of green or do you prefer blasts of color? Straight lines, or do curves with surprises around corners intrigue?

Third, you need to answer one question: how much maintenance are you willing to do to keep up such a space? Will you do this yourself or hire it out?

Armed with these three things, you are on your way to having your own Lake Norman retreat.

Few Gardens are Built Overnight

Most gardens are developed piece by piece over years. Look at your garden project only in terms of one-year increments once the overall blueprint is created. Finances must be procured and trees and shrubs need time to get established.

Landscape designers start with the bones or hardscapes of a garden. It requires the heaviest work. This is best outsourced to those with the heavy equipment to install. Reach out to Maxwell Landscaping to draw up a basic plan specific to your home and dreams. Then year after year, add to your yard one piece as your budget allows until all your foundation parts are established. By then, it will be so much easier to envision and create your dream Lake Norman oasis.

Maxwell did a great job installing our outdoor patio and firepit and finished ahead of schedule. When a few minor adjustments need to be made after the project was finished, Troy was very responsive, kept in touch, and had the adjustments made perfectly. Highly, highly recommend!

Christine Tobias

Was very pleased with the level of customer service. I had rock, fill dirt, and mulch delivered. When I arrived I was greeted quickly, they helped me make informed selections, and they delivered immediately. Cost of products was competitive. Will absolutely be coming back here for all of my landscaping/hardscaping needs.

Judy Breeding

Absolutely wonderful experience-Paul and Justin went extra mile to get my paver patio just right. They were pleasant and professional. Several neighbors commented on how neat and careful they were. Troy was especially helpful in every way. Highly recommend!!!

Drew Culbreth

Top Notch company....Reliable and Predictable work. I would put the skill and the results of this company against anyone. The outcome of projects always surpasses the expectation. Troy is great to work with and a stand up guy. Wouldn't want anyone else working in my yard.

Mike Stiene

Matt and Dave installed a beautiful hardscape Belgard wall in our front yard. We would highly recommend Troy and his crew to everyone. Thank you Maxwell Landscaping


Very happy with out outdoor fireplace. When you design a hardscape and its your first one a lot of trust goes to the contractor, especially with the larger area we decided to construct(20x20 w a 6ft fireplace, pavers and large natural stones). We felt very confident in Troy the owner of maxwell landscaping and he did everything to our requests. The job went as planned and his crew arrived when promised and since we had good weather the project was completed quicker than expected. Troy went beyond my expectations and the job estimate remained the same at the end. His crew did an excellent cleanup and I was impressed. To find a contractor in our area who is knowledgable, dependable, and honest is invaluable to me and I plan on using Troy again in the future. Dr Ed Scott and Dr Erin Scott
