Coolest Moth in Newburyport

Posted in Masonry, Plants, Pruning, Uncategorized at 6:48 AM by Administrator

I was in Newburyport talking with our client about how we are going to be able to help them this year with the front of their house. Once we finished the conversation about how we are going to enhance their front steps and add a stone veneer to their foundation, we walked out back to look at the stonework that we did in 2017. The stonework looks great, in my eyes and the client as well as this really cool moth…

I don’t think I have ever seen something like this, thus I took a couple of pictures then let it be (it was pretty comfortable resting on the top of the bench that we built around their firepit).

Patio and Grilling Area in Medford, MA

Posted in Masonry, Pavers, Uncategorized at 6:30 AM by Administrator

This Medford, MA family asked Artistic Landscapes for our help in designing a backyard for them that will look much better than what they have had and have a more defined purpose. Their goals were to have patio space for a large table and some chairs/lounges, a vegetable garden, a lawn and a space that they can use to turn a vehicle around.

We designed their backyard by using Unilock’s U-Cara wall stones as these wallstones have a similar feel and look as their house foundation. The wall was built so that they could have a long garden area which they plan on using as a vegetable and herb garden. We made an alcove to allow for the grill to be located. This alcove is sort of a mini-outdoor kitchen area and allows for more flexibility in the main part of the patio. The patio was built with Unilock’s Treo style pavers and Courtstone pavers as a border (the boldness in the color of the Courtstone help define the patio even further). In between the patio and the retaining wall, we planted sod.

The client has been enjoying their patio and grill space so much that they have not built the pergola that we installed footings for.
