Question DetailsAsked on 3/18/2012

i live in midtown omaha, nebraska in a stately brick home - we plan to sell this fall - can someone recommend a good landscaper

although our yard looks good, it needs some tuning, and some help with erosion coming from behind our property -- the former owners added to the house, building a huge rec room in basement, a great family room on 1st floor, a massive master bedroom, and a storage room in attic. this add-on took a huge chunk of the back yard - now the back yard is a patio and just enough area for landscaping - we have some fruit trees, a big pine tree, and lots of mostly hostas. i tried to do it myself and you can definitely tell that i'm an amateur. we also have a cobblestone wall in the back yard. unfortunately, the neighbors behind are not so diligent in maintenance of their back yard. they put up a wire fence about 2' behind our cobblestone wall. we need to put something in that 2' section that will help cover the wire fence and the neighbors back yard.

i have tried some landscapers in Omaha but i wasn't thrilled with any of them.

PLEASE - can someone help me in ol' Omaha, NE??????

You could plant vines in the space between your cobblestone wall and the neighbor's fence. Something not too sp[readingly aggressive, but with lots of aboveground growth would be good - clematis, perhaps. No trumpet vine or groundnut, they spread too quickly underground. Or, scarlet runner beans and you would get coverage and food at the same time.

Landscapers? Look on Angie's List. Find a wholesale nursery and make inquiries there. Find some propertiers you really like and ask who does their work.
