Installation for Failing Hillside is Complete!

Monday, June 20, 2016

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.

Failing Hillside Update!

Friday, June 10, 2016

This hillside was a waste of space and impossible to maintain. We cut it back and added some support in order to make it safer and more functional for the cleints. The difference is already amazing, but it will be even greater once the plantings are in!

The Beginning of a Big Littleton Project

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

This residential home in Littleton, New Hampshire, is in for a serious makeover. We are beginning with about 3,000 square feet of granite cobble stone to form an entryway that will match the already existing granite stone work as well as compliment the scale of the house. This is only a small part of the entire project; still to come are the installations of a swimming pool, patios, and large scale plantings.

Failing Hillside

Friday, May 20, 2016

This client had a failing hillside. It was nearly impossible and dangerous to try to mow because of how steep it was, and it was taking up usable space. The slope extended right up to the back of the house leaving the client without much of a back yard. We were able to turn the area into livable space with boulder walls and mortared core walls to support the slope once we dug some of it away. These walls will prevent the sandy ground from future erosion. We also added stone stairs that climb up to a patio and fire pit, which was one way we were able to utilize the slope. Eventually the upper hillside will be reforested with native species.

Failure to Functional

Thursday, May 19, 2016

This customer came to us for a solution for an existing retaining wall that had failed. We were able to rebuild and extend the wall with stone from Allen Block, in order to prevent future run off. Now not only is the wall convenient and effective, it also doubles as an elegant hardscape.

Little Fenway Gets a Facelift

Monday, May 16, 2016

August 12-14, 2016, marks the 15th year when friends of the Travis Roy Foundation will meet at Little Fenway in Essex, Vermont, to have a backyard WIFFLE Ball tournament. The Travis Roy foundation focuses on shortening the path to a cure for spinal cord injuries and helping spinal cord injured survivors who are in need of adaptive equipment improve their quality of life. Landshapes was able to help by re-grading and compacting the gravel so that it is handicap accessible. We also did drainage work to keep the pathways and fields dry. Stone slab stairs were set for access to the new field.

College Maybe out for the Summer but We're Just Getting Started!

Friday, May 6, 2016

Imagine coming home every day to a beautiful outdoor space where you can entertain a group of friends and family or just simply lay out, soak up some sun and enjoy a good book. Watch your kids splash around in the pool or casually float around for a while. Throw a pool party, host that Luau you’ve always wanted to, catch up with old friends, invite the in-laws over; the possibilities are endless, but they all start with Landshapes.

We installed a mortared core wall that will last for hundreds of years, an expansive patio for entertaining friends and family and a 300,000BTU fire pit for roasting marshmallows and taking the chill out of the cool Vermont evenings.

Project Update!

Friday, April 1, 2016

With the addition of a wood or gas burning outdoor fireplace or fire pit you can extend the season by taking the chill out of cooler spring and fall evenings. It is important to place the fire feature properly in the design and choose a size that is suitable for the space. This residential masonry project in Charlotte, Vermont has a massive fireplace that’s 300,000 BTU’s! The project also includes fieldstone landings and steps with bluestone treads, over 1,000 square feet of thermal bluestone patio, and more than 100 square feet of fieldstone wall with custom flamed caps!
