Hurricane Florence definitely changed that for us. And although we are incredibly thankful the damage sustained was to our property and not our home, repairing our yard was an undertaking we did not see coming. We had just contracted with RBE to remodel our home not even two weeks prior to the storm. All of our money was earmarked for that work.

We considered trying to remedy the situation ourselves, but after much Googling and head scratching, we realized our yard definitely needed professional help. Since we were new to the area and didn’t know of a company to reach out to, we were thankful God sent a truck from Hughes Gardening to cross paths with my dad and so he could jot down their number. Even though it was post-hurricane and all landscaping companies were in high demand, Hughes Gardening made the time to come and assess our yard quite quickly after we spoke on the phone describing our situation to them.

Once we spent just a few minutes with Trey Hughes, we knew he was the right person for our job. He is a great guy and a wealth of knowledge. You can tell he has a true passion for his work and we were excited to have him in charge of our yard. He came up with a game plan for our property and before we knew it, he and his crew brought our yard back to life.

Can you spy little ol’ me among the trees?

With our yard finally coming back together, it was time to turn our attention back to the interior of our home…
