For nearly 30 years, landscaping has been very much a part of my life, dating back to the landscaping at the World's Fair site in Knoxville, Tennessee during the 1980's. The opportunity has been given to me to be involved in the landscaping of several prestigious and extremely large commercial projects throughout the southeast United States, including office parks, malls, a military base in Alabama and the Chattanooga Aquarium.
However, nothing prepared me for the joy and the fulfillment of working together with homeowners in the development of the landscaping of their homes, especially their backyards, throughout metro Nashville, Brentwood, Franklin and Murfreesboro.
The years of landscape experience has inspired in me as a landscape designer and installer since 2001, the notion of how to make the outside so much a part of people’s homes and lives. What a grand and wonderful, and many times, forgotten, space. Who doesn’t want to be outside? Even when it is prohibitively cold or hot outside, we still want to bring the outdoors indoors.
We want to be outside! We want to gather around the warmth of a crackling fire with family and friends, to cook and eat our favorite meal outside, to play, exercise and swim in the pool, to relax by the sound of bubbling water cascading over a boulder or down a mountain waterfall or retreat to the calming of a woodland backyard. When weather tries to prohibit us from being outside we still will find ways to be there, whether through sunrooms, screened in porches or even pergolas to screen from the sun.
The outdoors is our destination, our sanctuary, our refuge, our place to get away to relax, to think, to pray, to dream, to spend time alone or with others…

One of the most important questions a customer should consider before talking to a professional being considered for the work at their home is… Does the professional have proven experience in the type of work they want to have performed at their home? Research on the internet, including reviews posted by past customers, provide prospective customers with vital information on the experience of the professional being considered.
We are so thankful for the opportunity we have had to work together with numerous homeowners throughout the past several years creating backyard get-a-ways at their homes to be enjoyed by them, their families and friends for years to come! We purposefully have developed our market with homeowners rather than commercial projects because we appreciate the opportunity to work with people at their homes, where life happens…
Another important question to be considered when considering how to choose the right professional to work together with at their home is… How creative is the professional? Creativity is essential to the process of developing unique, warm and inviting spaces, inside and outside the home, to be enjoyed by the customer as well as adding value to their home. Reviewing past projects on the professional’s website helps to evaluate if the creativity exhibited fits with the customer’s style and preferences.
Over the years we have found that our customers are usually more creative that they think they are! They have lived with their outdoor space for some time and usually have at least a general sense of what they would like to see in their backyard. We feel it is so important to draw those ideas out of them as we begin the process of creating their backyard get-a-way. Carefully listening to their ideas, their dreams… asking questions about how they would like to see and use their backyard become very important to us as we draw them into the design process themselves. Ultimately, at the end of every project, they can take great pride in the fact that they were very much part of the design of their backyard get-a-way with our help introduce them to ideas and elements they can enjoy at their home…
Of course, determining if the professional is qualified as a contractor in the State of Tennessee is also an important step in the qualifying profess… Allin Landscaping is proudly a licensed contractor in the State of Tennessee which requires workmen’s compensation and general liability insurance as a safeguard to our customers and their homes. Becoming a licensed contractor in the State of Tennessee is a vigorous process requiring studying and rigorous testing as well as satisfying experience, financial and several other qualifying factors. I have told customers in the past that I have a BS college diploma stored somewhere at my house. However, I have hanging on my office wall a small 5 ½” x 8 ½”, framed Tennessee Contractor’s certificate that included passing a Business Law test and a grueling 5-hour Residential Contractor’s test.… We feel this is an important value that we pass onto our customers.
Are we perfect? Absolutely not. We just simply love what we do working together with our customers at the place where they live to create a place that will be a welcoming place they can retreat to at the end of a busy day or week to enjoy life with family and friends for years to come!
