Drive far enough up Broadway just north of Montauk Highway in Mastic and you’ll happen upon house #50, which is hard to miss. With all the decorations filling the front yard, ranging from shadow profiles of dogs to a creepy Halloween black cat and tombstones, you’ll want to stop by and take a gander. Some are even 3D.
The owner of M&K Custom Lawn Designs, Marty, is a friendly man who is obviously proud of his skill. n His friendly demeanor encourages customers to chat while they browse through the sprawling display.
Even though 80% of Marty’s work are holiday based items (all major holidays included), M&K, also provides “It’s a boy!” and “It’s a Girl!” stork rentals on Long Island to adorn new parents’ lawns, announcing the special news.
In the market for a birdhouse to attract more feathered friends to your yard? You’re in luck because M&K features a variety of wooden birdhouses for customers to choose from. Various Summer decorations are available as well.
All of the decorations and birdhouses are personally designed, cut, and painted by Marty himself.
Marty, who has been practicing his craft on a professional level for approximately 9 years now, also takes custom orders. “For example,” he says, “I’m working on a shadow motorcycle for someone right now.” He is open to any ideas that you may have and will work with you to design custom lawn art that fits your needs and lives up to your expectations. According to Marty, custom designs only take approximately one week to complete.
Prices range from $5-$40 depending on the intricacy and size of the item. Customers have the option of paying with cash or PayPal.
