Big Littleton Fall Foliage

Friday, October 14, 2016

We're almost a month into Fall and this hilltop home in New Hampshire is looking even more fabulous with foliage! In these photos you can see how a landscape changes not only with the season but also with time of day; here at Landshapes we're always considering how our work will look year round in sun or shade.

New House Near The Lake

Thursday, August 11, 2016

After finishing construction of their house, these clients came to us for an outdoor living space that would complete their new home. With random pattern bluestone patios and fieldstone steps we were able to connect multiple access points along the back side of the house. Lights are integrated into the stone walls for a cozier feel when enjoying the space in the evenings. All of this was done while being cognizant of the 100ft lake setback.

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.

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.

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!

Slate Veneer Walls

Monday, March 23, 2015

Our Stone Masons are hard at work. They have built heavy duty tents around the project area and are heating them to work in this harsh weather we are having. The Stone Veneer being used is a Custom Cut Slate. It was quarried right here in the state of Vermont.

Majestic Walls In Adirondaks

Monday, January 5, 2015

This home was built on a steep hillside on Friends Lake In NY state. Thousands of tons of ledge was blasted away to level the building site, leaving a challenging site to work with. After hauling away thousands of tons of stone and hauling in thousands of tons of clean fill and tops soil we were ready to start building Stone Walls and landscape the property. Check back soon to see finished project.

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.
