“Dear PoPville,

Hoping I could request a repost of this from 9.5 years ago. I am going through this process now and came across this post that is word-for-word what I’m looking for.

‘We own a row house in Columbia Heights with the usual small front and back patio options that are common in the neighborhood. We’re looking to re-design and improve, but it seems like most of the companies you find in the usual Google/AngiesList/etc searching are Virginia/Maryland focused outfits that are more used to larger spaces. We’re not looking for anything specialized — a brick/stone patio and some landscaping will likely do. But we’re worried these larger companies may not meet our needs.

Wondering if any readers have used a local company that specializes in maximizing our smaller, unique spaces?”

Anyone have a small outdoor space redone? Who’d you use and roughly how much did it cost?’

Small DC rowhome with a tiny yard. Lots of landscaping services only do big projects. I went through all the comments and contacted ones still in business but around 50% were dead links.”
