In September, adventure stirs. It’s the month Frodo and Sam set out on their quest to save middle earth in the classic Lord of the Rings trilogy.

J.R.R. Tolkien propelled his Hobbit heroes forward by imbuing them with an everlasting hope that their journey would return them home.

When Peter Jackson brought the epic tale to the big screen, he set the stage by letting the audience linger among the autumnal tints and the abundant tranquility of the Shire that forged Frodo and Sam’s characters.

Tolkien succinctly captured the warmth of the Shire in the book where it all began, The Hobbit, and its famous first lines:

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat. It was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.”

In our homes, we should aspire for nothing less when we hear the call in the fall, when the kids head back to school and the office returns from vacation.

Williams Landscaping & Pavers creates the moment for its clients through custom patios and decks, pavilions and gazebos, and award-winning, dynamic landscape and lighting designs.

Whenever adventure beckons, a professional lawn care service can help you meet your moment.

Not far from the Shire in Northeast Ohio, the owner of Williams Landscaping & Pavers, Brian Williams, and his crew attend to every detail of their clients’ lawns.

“Everybody deserves to have a home they’re proud to show off, and pristine landscaping is a big part of that experience,” says Brian. “We are firm believers that a home should be a place to rest and retreat from the stresses of everyday life. Yet, we also recognize that many people do not feel so relaxed at home when they feel pressured to maintain a less-than-spectacular lawn.”

From one moment to the next, the home you created matters. As professionals in both the arts of landscape and hardscape, Brian and his crew also help set the stage by incorporating desired architectural elements into outdoor living spaces, seeing the moment their clients step into their back yard feeling like Aragorn and Arwen on their wedding day atop the tower fortress Minas Tirith, amid cheers of joy for the new king and queen with peace restored to middle earth. Or perhaps, to put it more humbly, feeling like Frodo and Sam returning home to the Shire to a well-deserved hero’s welcome.

“Our job is to make our clients the hero of their back yards,” says Brian.

Williams Landscaping creates the moment for its clients through custom patios and decks, pavilions and gazebos, and award-winning, dynamic landscape and lighting designs. Clients relive the moment each time they extend the experience, embracing outdoor living with their families and friends.

Every hero’s journey begins with the first step, and the free, easy-to-read primer the Big & Bold Outdoor Living Project Guide, available at WilliamsLandscaping.org, can be yours followed up with a free consultation.

“With any construction project, it’s worthwhile to have as much information as possible before you begin the process,” says Brian. “The guide helps you make the best decisions and understand what you can expect. Whether you’re looking to do a full backyard makeover, a small update, or something in between, it helps to have some ideas regarding trends, possibilities, and planning considerations.”

The guide lays out a four-phased timeline:

  1. Planning the project
  2. Selecting a contractor
  3. Installation
  4. After installation

“One of the first questions I ask my clients is what they like to do outside,” says Brian. “We come out to people’s homes or meet via video conferencing, and some have only a vague idea of what they want. Others will tell you exactly what they want, but it’s always a collaboration.”

According to the Big & Bold Outdoor Living Project Guide, you want to talk to a few different contractors. Still, anyone on the path to outdoor living is off to a good start with Williams Landscaping.

“People want to be outside, enjoy their yards, have a nice sitting area with a functional kitchen—sink, countertop, island…the whole works,” says Brian. “Outdoor living creates an environment that leads to drinking a glass of wine in the evening.”

A functional kitchen can bring the inside world out, making it easy to host impromptu barbecues and brick oven pizza parties. Or incorporate water features like a poolside waterfall or ornamental fountains to keep the world away as you drift away.
