Waterbury Swimming Pond

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

Landshapes transforms an existing swimming pond.  We terraced the steep slope to accommodate a small irregular bluestone patio facing views of the mountains. Our masons out did themselves again building beautiful stone retaining walls holding back a steep slope. The swimming pond was partially drained, dredged, and our crew recut the edges. Two aerators where installed to move and oxogenate the pond for better water quality.

Run Off Water Retention Ponds

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

These large scale water retention ponds where engineered to handle thousands of gallons of run of water from the new south village neighborhood off of Spear St in S. Burlington. Our Landscape Designers and Landscape Installers transformed these baron retention ponds into a lush and Eco Friendly Landscape Habitat. Hundreds yards of fertile soils where brought in to amend the native soils in this development which primarily consisted of Anaerobic Clay. Native Species of Trees, Shrubs, and Perennials where used to rehab these areas and encourage a wild life habitat. We also Inoculated the soils and root zones w/ Mycorrihzal Fungi and Beneficial Bacteria. These are essential to a health living soil culture..... while also cutting down on the plants water and fertilizer needs. Our Landscape Designers are available to come out and discuss your project needs for the spring right now. Don't miss out on getting onto our spring schedule.

Hinesburg Vermont Water Feature

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Vermont Water Feature

This Vermont Water Feature was designed by our Vermont Landscape Designer to fit in to this existing site. Our skilled Landscape Installers masterfully sculpted this Water Feature, incorporating existing ledge outcrops and vegetation. Two individual ponds connected by waterfalls and a collection pool comprise this Water Feature. This Vermont Water Feature is actually a Swim Pond complete with a high efficiency pump, sand filter, and UV filter ensuring a clean and inviting chemical-free swim. The lower pond is planted with Vermont Native Wetland Plants and will be home to aquatic wildlife. The upper pond will remain free of aquatic plants to maximize the swim area. This Landscape Design also includes an Irregular Bluestone Patio and Bluestone Steppers throughout the Water Feature. Landshapes has over 20 years experience building Water Features in Vermont, so give us a call today if you are interested.

Williston Vermont Landscape Design and Planting

Check out the transformation of this newly constructed home in Williston, Vermont. Its amazing how a good Landscape Design can complement a home. Our Vermont Landscape Designers went wild with color for this project. The Landscape Plantings incorporate color and interest throughout the spring, summer, and fall using a large variety of shrubs, loads of perennials, and some Vermont native plants! Larger trees help to anchor this house and define the space while the softer textures of the perennials help the transition into the surrounding landscape.

Mallets Bay Landscape Installation

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Our Landscape Designers and Landscape Installers have pulled out all the stops again on this lake front home in Colchester. The large Blue Stone Patio is very much in scale with the massive two stories of  glass on this house. The landscape grades where challenging here on this property as they dropped off of the road and down to the lake.  We eased the transition from the large Blue Stone Patio down to the lake with large boulders, two sets of Stone Slab Stairs, and a Water Feature with multiple water falls. Call one of our Landscape Designers today to have them transform your property into an extraordinary Outdoor Living Space.
