Backyard Transformation by Allie Lapporte, LC/DBM Above Located on a spacious property in a high-end community in Gibsonia, Pa., Beall's Nursery and Landscaping was commissioned by the homeowner to transform his back- yard into a family sanctuary. A pergola forms the ceiling of an outdoor living room across from an outdoor kitchen and eating area. Running alongside the pergola is a putting green lined with a rustic boulder wall. W When a homeowner in the exclusive suburb of Lake MacLeod in Gibsonia, Penn., wanted to completely overhaul his outdoor space, Pittsburg-based Justin Beall, owner of Beall's Nursery and Landscaping, was happy to take the job. He has been working in the industry for 21 years and is part of a three-generational family legacy of landscaping that includes his maternal grandfather and his father. Beall's family has been faithfully serving the eastern sub - urbs of Pittsburg for over 75 years. Beall fondly remembers simpler times as he looks back on how much the landscap - ing industry has changed since his grand- father first started in the 1950s. "I always laugh because my dad did napkin draw - ings, and now my customers want to see 3D renderings. It's a different scale." Beall's is a Design / Build landscape company with a nursery supply yard at - tached to the business. Beall and his team came upon this particular project after meeting the homeowner at the Pittsburg Home and Garden Show that the company attends annually. Due to their longstanding relationship with the show, their booth is stationed right at the entrance, so they are easy to find. "A lot of our work is by word of mouth or from our website, but we met him at the show," Beall explains. The home was relatively new when the project that spanned nearly a year began in August of 2016. It was built by Barrington 36 LC DBM Hardscape Aspects Provide Visual Interest and Entertainment Value PHOTOS BY AARON KARSTEN AND BRAD LAUER - WWW.5611STUDIOS.COM
