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.

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.

2 unit Condominium in Newburyport with a private backyard oasis

Posted in Masonry, Pavers, Plants, Pruning, Uncategorized at 6:46 AM by Administrator

Two Newburyport families live in a 2 unit condominium house and wanted a relaxing backyard oasis that each family could enjoy.  Thus, we installed various plants and created a peastone walkway and patios.  The peastone areas were outlined with reclaimed bricks.  The plant design was done by a local landscape designer whom we have worked with a few times.

The backyard for this 2 unit condominium in Newburyport was planted and created with a natural free flowing design

Can a loose laid natural stone wall look good?

Posted in Masonry, Plants, Pruning, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 6:42 AM by Administrator

Most of the walls that we build are mortared (think concrete) walls so that all of the stones are bound together but we also build loose laid stone walls.  A loose laid stone wall is a wall that has each stone placed on the lower stones.  Each stone can be moved by hand (the stones might be too heavy for one person to actually move it, but in theory each stone can be moved).  We built this natural stone retaining wall for a Newburyport family and finished the top of the wall with a combination of low bush blueberries, groundcovers and annuals.  The area behind the stone wall was filled with crushed stone as the crushed stone provides great drainage.  The crushed stone is kept in place by the installation of landscape fabric.

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).

Drainage around exterior of house for Ipswich family

Posted in Masonry, Plants, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 6:30 AM by Administrator

This Ipswich family was having an issue of water running down their driveway as well as their roof and ending up in their basement.  Because of their issue of getting water in the basement, they called us.  We installed a drainage system that includes 4″ perforated drainage pipes, an NDS collection drain, crushed stone and a dry well.  After our drainage system was installed, this family has stated that they no longer have any water entering their basement.

Landscape Lighting provide Christmas lighting in Newburyport

Posted in Landscape Lights, Plants, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 9:35 AM by Administrator

We installed a landscape lighting system for this Newburyport family as they wanted the curb appeal of coming home to their house with nice night lighting.  We installed FX lights that have color changing bulbs (ZDC lights).  Most of the year, the lights are similar to white lights but they do change the light colors on special occasions.  This is easily done because we created a theme for the Christmas colors and they can easily activate that theme.  This is what their home looked like.
