How does Landshapes get 3,500 square feet of pavers, 245 tons of crushed gravel, 61 tons of sand, an excavator, and skidsteer into an almost entirely enclosed courtyard........Very Carefully!  Laying this Paver Patio was no easy task. We first craned in an excavator and skidsteer to excavate large amounts of soil in the courtyard while a small team of dingos moved the soil out a 6' door, thru a hallway, and out another 6' foot door to the driveway. It was then hauled off site. That same small team of dingos moved in all the crushed gravel...

Our mason's set these extremely large custom cut granite pieces at the new Vermont State Office Complex. These pieces of granite weighed anywhere from 12,000 to 18,000 pounds. This was no small task it required the use of a massive crane. This project also included custom cut sitting walls, large custom cut pavers, and stairs.

Landscape Construction, Landscape Design,  Landscape Instalations

Landshapes always practices proper Horticultural Practices when planting & maintaining all of its tree and plant material. Prior to winter hitting we spray all of our needled and broad leaf evergreen we planted with a Powerful Antidesicant.  This coats the needles and leaves with a waxy substance for up to 6 months protecting them from winter winds and sun. This is normally the cause of winter burn. Although this antidesicant is not a deer or rodent deterrent it has a taste aversion to deer, rabbits, mice, and other rodents.

Pond Aeration, Landscape Ponds, Landscape Design, Landscaping

This Customer Contacted Landshapes when he started noticing his trophy brown trout start to die off.  The Pond is about 180' Long X 40' Wide X 14' Deep which is plenty large and deep enough to harbor large trout. The one thing we notice on our initial visit  is that the Pond did not have any moving water in it. Moving water in a pond is essential to keeping the water oxygenated for aquatic life. This not only includes the trophy trout but frogs, salamanders, and insects as well. We installed an AirPro aeration system with...

This Landshapes customer had a 10 foot wide hedge of arborvitae which grew right to the edge of his pool. Over the years his overgrown landscape had eaten up valuable realestate around his pool. Landshapes removed the 10 foot wide hedge to try to reclaim some of that valuable realestate around the pool. We then installed a retaining wall as far out as we could to retain the soil and create a flat usable space around the Pool
