Mums, Mums and more Mums!

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Our Estate Maintenance crew and one of our designer’s have been busy the past week and a half installing thousands of mums and ornamental cabbage all over the state.  They started the plantings in Williston at Maple Tree Place and worked their way to the Hilton and Sheraton Hotels in Burlington. Next were residential properties in Shelburne. The week ended on the Capitol lawn in Montpelier.  Today we traveled to the Harpoon Brewery in Windsor. One more residential property in Burlington this week and then we are finally finished!

Shelburne Residence - Front Entry & Tree Planting - Completion

Friday, September 14, 2012

Last Friday we finished this residential project in Shelburne.  There was a big push to have the project completed that day and there was a lot to do.  The site wasn’t ready for planting until about 4:00pm and the walkway was still being completed when our designer showed up to layout the plant material.  Slowly but steadily from 4:00 – 6:00 pm the crew on site grew from 3 guys to 11 people, almost half our crew!  You could look up the street and see 9 Landshapes trucks!  People kept coming from all over the area to help.  It was pretty crazy to watch it all come together.  There was a team finishing the walkway  (laying pavers, edging and sweeping Gator Sand into the joints), a team planting & mulching and another team grading and repairing all the lawn damage.  We were able to complete the installation by 7:00pm and then our entire fleet made their way back to Richmond.

Shelburne Residence - Front Entry & Tree Planting

Thursday, September 6, 2012

This residential project began on Tuesday.  The crew started with planting some sizable trees throughout the property, to provide screening for our clients.  Yesterday, they began to dig and base the new front walkway.  Careful attention was paid to all DIGSAFE markings, which unfortunately ran right under where the new walkway was to be built.  While the Forman ran the excavator one of our stonemasons watched diligently for the lines. Once the area was dug, the base stone was hauled in and then compacted.  They started laying the Brussels Block UNILOCK paver walkway this afternoon and had to set the 4’ long sandstone slab step by hand.  The stair install went smoothly and the walkway way looks great so far! While some of the crew was working on the walkway, the others were mulching the trees put in earlier in the week and worked on repairing any damage done to the lawn.  Fresh topsoil was brought in and then was hydroseeded.

Charlotte Swimming Pond Installation - Patio Install and Planting

Monday, August 27, 2012

The stone masons finished up the bluestone patio with built-in fire pit that corresponds to the large swimming pond.  Our installation crew completed planting the substantial beds which surround the patio and pond. Lastly the lawn area that was disturbed was freshly top soiled and then hydro-seeded to conclude the installation.
