Paver Walkway in Beverly, MA

Posted in Masonry, Pavers, Uncategorized at 6:08 AM by Administrator

We built a paver walkway that connects the driveway to the back deck for this Beverly, MA family.  In the past, the area under the fence gate became muddy and they were not pleased that the ‘lawn’ in this area never grew well as it was used regularly by them and their dog (this is the only entrance area to the fenced in backyard.

Thus, we improved the use of this area with a paver patio/walkway and the area looks much more finished and pleasing to the homeowners’.

For more information about why we, Artistic Landscapes, chose this layout or if you would like to learn how we can help you, please contact Tony at 978.317.9875 or visit our website at www.Artistic-Landscapes.com.

Paver patio in Danvers, MA

Posted in Masonry, Uncategorized at 6:36 AM by Administrator

We built this round paver patio for a family in Danvers, MA in the middle of their backyard so that they can enjoy the large variety of birds that visit their property.  Last year, we worked with this family on their extensive plantings.  We prepped all of the garden beds and planted the trees and larger shrubs while they added a few smaller shrubs and many perennials.

Lighting of Stone Wall

Posted in Landscape Lights, Masonry, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 6:44 AM by Administrator

We utilized a method of uplighting the natural stone wall at Wayside Shopping Center in Burlington, MA by installing landscape lighting fixtures that are flush to the lawn and creating a ‘wow’ statement with the stonework.  This method has helped us create the resort like feeling for consumers as they approach the Shopping Center.
