Spring is just around the corner.  Many of the early Spring flowering perennials are starting to pop-up.  Here are some which I saw in Gloucester.

We had a terrific time Saturday night at the Gala fundraising event last Saturday night (March 22nd) at the Seaport Hotel in Boston for Housing Families.  Housing Families provides tutoring and after school help for homeless children and they help family keep/get housing.  We have friends whom have been volunteering as tutors for over six years and they share how much of a positive impact this organization has on these families.  Currently, they help over 200 families and more than 450 children.

We are making progress towards having the Artistic Landscapes office/garage built this Spring/Summer so that we can move all of our tools and operations into our headquarters in Rowley, MA.  We have hired the architectural firm, A.Point.Design from Danvers, MA to help with the aesthetics and functionality of the building.  Rick from A.Point.Design and his crew will be helping us significantly by adding value and design work throughout construction and they will monitor all of the subcontractors.  Our goal is to move in to our headquarters near Labor Day 2014.  We have also hired a company to remove all of the trees and we expect this work to done by the end of March.

Boston Flower & Garden Show – Prep

Posted in Masonry, Pavers, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 6:32 AM by Administrator

We are getting ready for the Boston Flower & Garden Show that is next week.  This weekend we will build a patio, segmental wall and pillars which we use as our display next week.  With any luck, we will finish this construction on Saturday as we will need Sunday to repackage the stones onto pallets and get the pallets ready for us to bring them to Boston on Monday.

We are also working on getting all of our plants in top shape for Wednesday.  We have purchased a tree from Sylvan Nursery and plants from Heimlich Nurseries and Weston Nurseries.

Techo-Bloc Pavers Seminar

Posted in Masonry, Pavers, Uncategorized at 6:32 PM by Administrator

Earlier this week, I attended an informative full day seminar held by Techo-Bloc.  As you probably already know, I have been a Techo-Pro for several years and we often incorporate pavers and segmental walls by Techo-Bloc into the landscapes for our clients.  The seminar was very helpful and focused on permeable pavers.

Please visit our website, www.Artistic-Landscapes.com for additional information about our abilities regarding pavers and walls or contact Tony directly at 978.317.9875.
