Now that we have all shoveled and plowed ourselves out from the record-breaking blizzard of 2016, its time to say a big THANK YOU to all of you who stopped by and visited us at the All New Philly Home Show in Oaks this year. We at Turpin Landscaping were super excited to be the Landscape Contractor in Montgomery County to win best in show. We thoroughly enjoyed the time spent educating friends, both old and new, about ecosystem ponds, pondless waterfalls, landscaping, hardscaping & masonary. One of the many highlights for us was watching the news reporters enjoying the view of the pond from our patio while giving local viewers a rundown of the show. The setup was so beautiful the reporters couldn’t resist relaxing by the pond. The local press also visited us and gave us some wonderful coverage. Always a highlight for both young and old alike is the stepping stone bridge across the pond and the kids sure loved trying to find the koi and the turtles that swam in the pond during the show.

What can we say…….YOUR GENEROSITY OVERWHELMS US! To all our customers, committee members, sponsors and family members who have supported us, and to all our friends who have worked tirelessly along side of us, we humbly thank you from the bottom or our hearts! Your gift of time and talent has made the presentation of this donation possible. Thursday, October 1st we presented a check in the amount of $16,500.00 to Larry Welsch, Executive Director of the Chester County Food Bank. This donation is the cumulative effort of many generous sponsors and customers who opened their properties for one or more of our annual Pond and Garden Tour Fund Raisers. The food bank serves over 90 food cupboards and meal sites. Near and dear to our heart is the Raised Bed Gardens program that was started in 2009 with just 25 beds at six sites. Today they have 621 gardens at 122 sites, including 49 schools. The Children’s Backpack Program is another worthwhile cause that is supported through the tour. For more than 10 years with the help of our friends, families and generous sponsors we have been able to donate over $80,000.00 to the Chester County Food Bank! We could not be more grateful to each and every one of you for making the 2015 season of Pond and Garden Tours an AMAZING success!
One of the many projects we at Turpin Landscaping, Inc. just love to share is the stunning property of Peggy Jones in West Chester PA. This property hosts an outdoor living space of multiple functionality. From the hydrotherapy pool, rain garden, irregular flagstone patio, pavilion, all new landscaping, to the fireplace and outdoor kitchen, this property is a sight to behold. The outdoor kitchen contains, among other amenities, a sink, barbecue, refrigerator, cooking burners and a spectacular dining area. This property came with some unique challenges that had many contractors overwhelmed, but not the talented group at Turpin Landscaping. Jason arrived at the property and told the homeowner that he could indeed transform her backyard into the oasis of her dreams.
