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...
Have wooded land on your property?
Do you have snags, dead standing trees, or are thinking about having hiking or snowshoeing trails in your back yard?
Landshapes is currently taking on more winter woods work! Let us create beautiful trails on your property for hiking and snowshoeing, or just have us clean up those dangerous snags and dead standing trees.
Some of our crew is working on a new project, a barn on the lake! Monolithic natural cleft bluestone slabs are being used to create walkways and patios that match the large scale of the property. Sod will be installed in the joints to create a rustic informal look.
Our masons also masterfully pieced together split face fieldstone steps to create large continuous stair treads leading into this lake barn which will be used to host events with its amazing view up Lake Champlain.
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.

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.
Remember this Morrisville home? We finished this project in July and recently went back to check how things were doing, and they look great! The lawn is lush and the plants are already filling in the space! We’re so happy to have been able to give this client a beautiful outdoor living space that can coincide with the amazing views.
With Fall comes cooler nights, apple picking, cider donuts and pumpkin spice everything. To kick things off we’ve once again decorated Maple Tree Place! So when you’re out enjoying the Fall festivities, don’t forget to reserve your spot for a landscaping project next Spring!
Here are some more photos of the Littleton project! Grand views and a grand house inspired us for this massive landscape/hardscape design. Now our installation gets to be the foundation of many memories to come! Once the plants grow and patio furniture is laid out this outdoor living space will have a complete and cozy feel, despite its enormity.
