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...

Although this property had a 20' deep swimming pond it was 100 yards away form the house. Wanting to keep a closer eye on their children we installed this SAN JUAN fiberglass pool right at the house.  The pool and patio where situated with the view in mind. It looked over their existing pond out to MT Mansfield and the Sterling Range. We installed this pool with all the bells and whistles. All equipment was Pentair and included 400 BTU Heater, Intelchlor, Intelchem, UV Sanitizer, and an easy touch control...

How does Landshapes get 3,500 square feet of pavers, 245 tons of crushed gravel, 61 tons of sand, an excavator, and skidsteer into an almost entirely enclosed courtyard........Very Carefully!  Laying this Paver Patio was no easy task. We first craned in an excavator and skidsteer to excavate large amounts of soil in the courtyard while a small team of dingos moved the soil out a 6' door, thru a hallway, and out another 6' foot door to the driveway. It was then hauled off site. That same small team of dingos moved in all the crushed gravel...

Our mason's set these extremely large custom cut granite pieces at the new Vermont State Office Complex. These pieces of granite weighed anywhere from 12,000 to 18,000 pounds. This was no small task it required the use of a massive crane. This project also included custom cut sitting walls, large custom cut pavers, and stairs.

Landshapes always practices proper Horticultural Practices when planting & maintaining all of its tree and plant material. Prior to winter hitting we spray all of our needled and broad leaf evergreen we planted with a Powerful Antidesicant.  This coats the needles and leaves with a waxy substance for up to 6 months protecting them from winter winds and sun. This is normally the cause of winter burn. Although this antidesicant is not a deer or rodent deterrent it has a taste aversion to deer, rabbits, mice, and other rodents.
