Boston Flower Show – Pergola

Posted in Landscape Lights, Masonry, Pruning, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 6:14 AM by Administrator

Artistic Landscapes LLC was able to enhance the kitchen area of our display at the Boston Flower & Garden Show that was held at the World Trade Center in Boston from March 14th – 18th, 2018 by installing a pergola that was made by Joe Caputo of Pittston, Maine.  The lumber for the pergola was milled from high-tension utility poles that had been decomissioned by a utility company.  Joe was able to repurpose the Alaskan Yellow Cedar poles into the beautiful pergola as well as the two stools.

Earlier today we were honored to receive the award for Best Pavers and the award for Best Trained Plants.  I am thankful for having such great employees who worked on the design of our display and then fully implementing our design.  They did a great job.

If you would like to see our use of porcelain pavers for an outdoor patio, please stop by our display or call Tony with Artistic Landscapes at 978.948.2900.

Boston Flower Show, Day 2 – 2018

It is a beautiful day and we are all enjoying the vibrant colors of Courtney Tanner’s hand blown glass bowls and bird bath as well as her ceramic bowls.  Courtney made us some ceramic bowls that look exactly like a half of a cantaloupe.  At this point, we have only 4 of Courtney’s hand blown glass bowls left and 1 bird bath.

Please stop by to enjoy these vibrant and useful bowls made by Boston artist Courtney Tanner.

Are lights that can have colors worth the cost?

Posted in Landscape Lights, Masonry, Pavers, Uncategorized at 11:47 AM by Administrator

We are often asked if the premium to have light fixtures that can be programmed to be any color (30,000 colors or so) is worth it.  We have seen that the lights are normally programmed to be a shade similar to white (if we are illuminating a bluestone area then the lights might have a little blue tint and if we are uplighting evergreens then the white light will have a green tint) but with a nominal tint that accents the items being illuminated.  The difference between the tinted white and a white light is noticeable when you see the 2 options (each homeowner decides on the value of the difference).

We have been helping homeowners create party and holiday themes in addition to their everyday tinted white.  The party themes are very exciting and suggest that everyone is going to have fun because we program festive colors.  The following are 2 pictures of the same stone work that we built for an Ipswich family.  The first picture shows the stonework with the tinted white while the 2nd picture reflects the stonework with the party theme.

Deck support columns uplit for Ipswich family

Posted in Landscape Lights, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 6:29 AM by Administrator

There are 3 support columns near a patio that we built for an Ipswich family.  These columns support a large deck that the family accesses through the doors from the first floor of the house.  We accented these columns by uplighting each column.  In addition, we installed 2 lights up under the flooring of the deck so that these 2 lights can cast a moonlight effect onto the patio.  Here is a picture with me looking directly at the light fixtures.

Landscape Lighting a Fence in Topsfield

Posted in Landscape Lights, Plants, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 6:53 AM by Administrator

As part of an extensive landscape lighting system in Topsfield, we were able to create a consistent and good feel to the 6′ tall fence that limits access to the lawn area.  The look of having 10 panels uplit with a light in the center of each panel has created the look that the owners’ wanted (and we like).

Landscape Lighting in Topsfield

Posted in Landscape Lights, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 6:48 AM by Administrator

We provided an extensive landscape lighting system to the party/function area of this estate in Topsfield.  These FX lights are dimmable.  Three transformers were strategically placed around the property to allow for the most efficient installation and to limit how much electricity was needed to source power to each fixture.
