weeding, gardening

Here are some things you can do in the late summer to ensure a healthy and lively lawn and garden for the rest of this year and next!

 

Watering
On the hotter days of summer water evaporates fast, and your plants will appreciate a good watering early in the morning to get them through the scalding days.

Weeding
The sooner you weed the better. It will be less work for you in the long run if you pull out weeds as soon as they grow. By waiting until there’s enough to be an eyesore you’re...

The University of Vermont Alumni House was built in 1892 and is 18,000 square feet. Recently a 2,600 square foot addition was put on and we were hired to do the landscaping. Around the addition we installed bluestone mortared patios and stair treads as well as granite steps. We also did a brick paver patio and walkway with alumni names etched into the bricks. Around both the new addition and the original building we installed tree, shrub and perennial plantings. Despite...

Work at Champlain College is almost complete! We put in English Edge Heavy clay pavers from Pine Hall where giant concrete slabs used to be and installed some plantings. The colors of the pavers are Buff and Rose which compliment the surrounding plants and buildings. With the new CCM building looking great it was time to update some other areas of campus.

After finishing construction of their house, these clients came to us for an outdoor living space that would complete their new home. With random pattern bluestone patios and fieldstone steps we were able to connect multiple access points along the back side of the house. Lights are integrated into the stone walls for a cozier feel when enjoying the space in the evenings. All of this was done while being cognizant of the 100ft lake setback.

New England landscaping

We’re mobilizing some of our Caterpillar equipment on our Freightliner to a large project at Eaglebrook School in Deerfield, Massachusetts.  The project consists of custom cut granite pavers and large scale plantings.

Before any great landscape can be created it must first be drawn! Landshapes has great designers who not only know what will look good, but what will grow well and fit the needs of the space and clients. Of course lines on paper are never as impressive as the finished product, but the time and thought our designers put into each project deserves recognition. Site plans help the client better envision their new space and get them excited for what is to come.

Sometimes it’s hard to tell with week to week updates just how much progress we are making, but if you look back to where we started, you’ll see how much we’ve done! This was a beautiful house with amazing views, but it sat on top of a barren hill. Our job was to make the landscape just as grand as the home with the installation of planting beds, granite pavers, a swimming pool, wet bar, waterfall, patio, outdoor kitchen and more! In about...

This Morrisville home is complete! You might think it looks good now, but next year around this time when the plants have had a chance to grow and the grass is done coming in it will look even better! We put plants all around the back of the house and along one side, installed a swimming pool with coping, and put in a patio that goes right up to two existing decks and the new pool house. The pool is equipped with a Pentair Easy Touch system, an ...
