We Know Plants. We Can Help.

Friday, April 7, 2017

Every plant is different; each one has unique conditions in which it thrives. Other than the numerous considerations needed to plant the right plant in the right spot (amount of sun, water, soil type etc.) another thing to consider is the intended function of the plant. This can be as basic as making sure the plant works aesthetically with its surroundings, or more complex like choosing plants to absorb excess water or that will not fall prey to hungry deer.

Our designers at Landshapes are familiar and experienced with tens of thousands of plants. Let us help you bring your landscape dreams to life while also creating a space that’s beautiful, thriving, and functions to your needs.

Start Thinking About Your Summer Landscaping Now

Tuesday, January 24, 2017

Whether you embrace winter by hitting the trails, or push through with help from thoughts of sunny beaches, now is the perfect time to consider your landscaping. The dull grays and browns of winter may inspire ideas for a unique landscape design which could include colorful plantings, a stone patio, stone walkways, a water feature and more. You can also plan your Vermont landscaping so that there are still elements that add aesthetic to your yard in the winter, such as Winter Berry, Harry Lauder's Walking Stick, Red Twig Dogwood, evergreens and masonry. Winter is also a good time to observe how your yard handles rain, cold and foot traffic to determine if there are any irrigation, drainage or runoff problems that should be addressed. Rain gardens, drip edge, and retaining walls are just a few solutions to these problems.

Holiday Decorating

Tuesday, November 29, 2016

Around here the holiday spirit seems to build itself, with cozy fires, fluffy snow and TV specials. This doesn’t mean you can’t add to the magical feeling by decorating! There is a huge array of decorating supplies and ideas out there, and it can seem a bit overwhelming, but all you have to do is decide what look you’re going for, and then chose the right decorations.

Create a classical look with white lights, traditional decorations, and use colors such as silver, white and blue. Bring the inside out by decorating with pine cones and fallen branches. For a more festive, decked out look, use color lights, seasonal candy dishes and tablecloths, garlands and wreaths, colors such as red and green, and put out a gingerbread house, elf on a shelf or mensch on a bench!

No matter what holiday you’re celebrating this season, there are always new ways to decorate your home, inside and out. Just remember to keep the look consistent and own and be proud of what you do.

You Dream It, We Draw It!

Wednesday, August 3, 2016

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.

Englesby House

Tuesday, June 7, 2016

The UVM Englesby house in Burlington is a location we have done work at over the past few years. Recently it needed a bit of a face lift to really bring it back to life and let our previous work shine. It isn’t common to find such a large and beautiful formal garden in the middle of the city which adds to the location's overall charm. The use of brick in the front walkway and backyard patio ties in nicely with the home. With the addition of some plantings the location is as vibrant and lively as ever.

Outdoor Living At It's Finest

Friday, February 5, 2016

The area where this customer wanted to build his outdoor living Space had a 15 foot drop with the potential for flooding from the Mad River. It required the pouring of reinforced concrete walls which where tied into the surrounding ledge. This gave us a a large flat space to work with and no potential of flooding. The patio was laid with large irregular blue stone. 2 large planting beds were created flanking each concrete wall with large pieces of granite. The planting beds soften up the look of all the stone elements and brought some plant color and textures into the living space. We Installed a high tech fiberglass spa with all the bells and whistles into the corner. This included custom cut and thermaled blue stone coping and stairs. This spa also included a salt water chlorinator, UV light, Pentair Intelchem, Intelchlor, and an Easytouch controller. This created a maintenance free spa which could be controlled by any smart phone or tablet. The full size outdoor fire place was built with a Stone Age Fireplace Kit and veneered with Mountain Field Stone. It really throws the heat into the patio area. A hearth was laid with custom cut granite pavers to play off of the granite planting beds. With a secondary highway in view and privacy an issue a custom made cedar fence was built. It flanks the fireplace and blocks the space from a busy secondary highway, To bring the outdoor living space together with the entry, we laid a random pattern tumbled paver with an accent inlay around the perimeter to bring the build together..
