Deer Park, NY 1/24/12 - The LINLA is an elite group of members making up the top notch Landscape Designers on Long Island. We have been presented with a Bronze plaque for the category of Miniscape, which is an area of under 2500 square feet.

Our project had incorporated an existing swimming pool with redesigned patio adding a tiered scheer descent water feature built from dry stacked stones. We then added a custom built-in outdoor kitchen with a Granite countertop and appliances also built using the dry stacked stone material. Lush plantings were incorporated to soften the hardscape and complete this attention-grabbing project.

Basics Landscaping offers all phases of masonry work: pool patios, retaining walls, outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, pergolas, waterfalls and stone veneer. We offer full-service Lawn Maintenance in order to maintain our Award Winning landscapes. For more information go to our website www.basicslandscaping.com
