Foam Brewers is celebrating one year in business! We are installing an irregular stone walkway and patio that reflects the mood of the interior. The patio will be used as an outdoor bar. Once plantings and a trellis are installed, this bar/brewery will have a great outdoor space to be enjoyed by happy customers.
These clients had existing precast steps leading to their home that were pushing down on their walkway which caused it to crack and lift up. We got rid of and replaced the problem steps and redid the walkway. Now they have an entryway with smooth stone and clean lines that is more welcoming to visitors.
If you take a look back at our previous blog post, "Failing Hillside", you can see just how far we've come! Even when you look at the "Failing Hillside Update!" it was hard to visualize how things would end up looking. But now here it is! Installation is complete and all that's left is for the grass to come in! The owners now have space to enjoy the outdoors, whether it's lounging on the patio or enjoying the stadium seating around the fire pit.
The UVM Englesby house in Burlington is a location we have done work at over the past few years. Recently it needed a bit of a face lift to really bring it back to life and let our previous work shine. It isn’t common to find such a large and beautiful formal garden in the middle of the city which adds to the location's overall charm. The use of brick in the front walkway and backyard patio ties in nicely with the home. With the addition of some plantings the location is as vibrant and lively as ever.
Our crew has finished work at this St. Johnsbury home! The landscape is complete with planting beds, a patio, a walkway, and oh, did we mention a giant waterfall?! These clients can now enjoy dinner on their patio while listening to the calming sounds of water falling down shelves of rocks into a retention pond.

Landshapes employees get a jump on the season. They are preparing Irregular Blue Stone Flagging for spring projects by taking off weak and or the thin edges of the Blue Stone making them more uniform in thickness. They then will champer all edges with a masonry hammer for a more natural look. This eliminates one step in the process at the job site making laying the Blue Stone Steppers much faster.
This front entry way originally had timbers retaining the beds which flanked the walk and started to fail. The original pavers were completely detererating after 20+ years of salt, harsh weather, and heaving in our harsh VT winters. We replaced the timbers with 18" granite curbing to retain the beds, and used a random pattern textured paver to play off of the colors of off the house and granite. The sawn cut ends of the granite were thermalled on site to match the top sides of the large granite stones.
