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.

Stone Walls At Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center

Thursday, April 30, 2015

This project was designed by ORW Landscape Architects out of White River Junction Vermont. The Landscaping being done at this building is at the Williams Translational Research Building At Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. The Wall Stone being used by our Landscape Masons is a Granite quarried right here in Chester VT. The attention to detail our Landscape Masons have is beyond what most would even comprehend. Just about every Wall Stone is meticulously cut by hand for the perfect fit. Some times our Landscape Masons will work a stone 3-5 times before is is actually set in mortar. You can see the quality of workmanship in the finished product itself.

Burlington Vermont Backyard Transformation

Tuesday, April 7, 2015

Landshapes' Installation Crews have started this Landscape Project in Burlington Vermont today. These client's wanted to maximize their outdoor space around their existing pool and create screening from neighbors. Landshapes' Landscape Designers created a Landscape Design that extends the usable lawn area by removing a large cedar hedge,  constructing a Retaining Wall, and installing a level Lawn area. Landshapes Vermont Designer helped these clients throughout the permitting process making sure that all the new construction will conform to Burlington, Vermont's zoning and building regulations.
