New Patio for Pond

Friday, June 9, 2017

We installed this swimming pond back in 2013. The client recently decided a patio would be a nice addition to the existing landscape. We used irregular natural cleft bluestone to cover an area of lawn coming from the existing stone slab stairs to the pond.

UVM Alumni House

Thursday, August 18, 2016

The University of Vermont Alumni House was built in 1892 and is 18,000 square feet. Recently a 2,600 square foot addition was put on and we were hired to do the landscaping. Around the addition we installed bluestone mortared patios and stair treads as well as granite steps. We also did a brick paver patio and walkway with alumni names etched into the bricks. Around both the new addition and the original building we installed tree, shrub and perennial plantings. Despite the age of the architecture, this recently renovated building is now looking as lively and welcoming as ever.

Walkway Rehab

Tuesday, June 28, 2016

These clients had existing precast steps leading to their home that were pushing down on their walkway which caused it to crack and lift up. We got rid of and replaced the problem steps and redid the walkway. Now they have an entryway with smooth stone and clean lines that is more welcoming to visitors.

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!

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.

Nestled on a Hilltop in St. Johnsbury

Thursday, April 7, 2016

Our crews are currently constructing a massive waterfall, patio and planting beds at this St. Johnsbury home. The waterfall cascades down into a small retention pond not far from the natural cleft bluestone patio. Planting beds surround both the patio and house which will allow for a pop of color against the grays of the stone.

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!
