The area around the lake barn is coming together! We enjoy working with landscape architect Deborah Nevins & Associates, Inc. and Cascade Builders.
This complete rehab on the waterfront in Burlington includes the removal of approximately 2,300 square feet of asphalt court and old overgrown Japanese garden and cedar hedges. We are installing a bocce court, native plantings from Gardener's Supply Company, a natural cleft bluestone patio with stone from Cleary Stone Company, a fire pit, and landscape lighting from The Lighting House!
We are finishing up this project in South Hero! Naylor & Breen Builders, Inc. built this home designed by Brad Rabinowitz Architect. The landscape was designed by Cynthia Knauf Landscape Design Inc. We installed bluestone walks and patios with stone from Trowel Trades Supply, Inc. We planted trees, shrubs and perennials from Gardener's Supply Company.
We installed this swimming pond back in 2013. The client recently decided a patio would be a nice addition to the existing landscape. We used irregular natural cleft bluestone to cover an area of lawn coming from the existing stone slab stairs to the pond.
It's that time of year again! The plantings at the Vermont State House have been switched out for Summer! Red Salvia, Blue Salvia, Yellow Celosia, Hawaii Blue Ageratum, Red Cana Lily, and Purple Fountain Grass were planted to complete this colorful look!
Despite what seems to be endless rain, our crews have still been able to make progress on our projects! This project includes the installation of a water feature and fountain with lights that will provide a tranquil space for relaxing as well as aerate the pond to help control algae growth and sustain the trout. In the construction we used on site boulders hand selected by the client. A mix of ornamental and native wetland plants were used.
Landshapes has been working with landscape architect Deborah Nevins & Associates, Inc. out of New York City on the landscaping for a home being built by Cascade Builders out of Saranac Lake. The landscape architect’s goal is to create mass plantings combined with an understory meadow. 27 trees, 1,369 shrubs and 5,140 ferns are to be planted.
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...
The depth in which a tree is planted is very important to the tree’s future health. If a tree gets planted too deeply, such as in image A, it can die. A tree should be planted so that the root flare is just above the ground’s surface. The root flare is where the roots move away from the trunk, flaring outwards. Do not mistake the graft for the root flare; sometimes the grafts can be exaggerated and look like root flare ( B ). A correctly planted tree looks like images C and D. Sometimes before planting a tree, soil must be removed to expose the root flare; the newly exposed trunk can be at...
