Foam Brewers is celebrating one year in business! We are installing an irregular stone walkway and patio that reflects the mood of the interior. The patio will be used as an outdoor bar. Once plantings and a trellis are installed, this bar/brewery will have a great outdoor space to be enjoyed by happy customers.
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.

These Massive Stone Veneer Pillars were built on the entry of a 25' wide driveway. They Measure 6' H X 4' W X 4' D. Our Mason Veneered American Granite onto CMU structure using Possi-Tie's for strength. Although not on the structure yet, we have 4" custom cut granite caps with an additional 4" of beveled top.... these things are massive. The caps will also have custom made LED strip lights recessed into the cap.
The interior and exterior of the Hilton In Burlington was decorated with delightful Christmas displays. We used 15 Live 5 foot Blue Spruces, 500 Poinsettias, Hundreds of pounds of Cut Balsam Greens , hundreds of Red Twig Dogwood and Curly Willow to create these spectacular Christmas displays. It took a team of 7 people 5 hours to bring this all together.
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.
Landshapes gets a jump on the season preparing thousands of yards of soils for the spring Landscape Planting Season. All of our soils are custom mixed at our facilities in Richmond Vermont. Carefully selected amounts of Silt, Sand, and Compost are incorporated and run through a screener to blend and mix the Planting Soils thoroughly.
This home originally had a gravel driveway, walkways, failing PT stairs, and a drainage problem at the garage doors. We created a Rustic Concrete Paver Apron, from the front entry, across the garage doors, over to the work shop, and to the back door. We incorporated Rustic Stone Slab Stairs with thermalled tops and a natural rock faces at the front and back doors. The color of the Stone Slab Stairs played off of the Rustic Concrete Paver Color as well as the house color tying all of the elements together. To deal with the run off from the street pooling at the garage doors we set 25' of channel drains set into the Rustic Concrete Pavers which daylighted into the side yard. The Deep shaded front wood line was planted with a handful of shade loving flower plants, and 500 Cornus Canadensis plugs. The Asphalt paving was done by our sister company J. Hutchins Inc.
