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.

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.

Angie’s List Super Service Award for 2016

Posted in Landscape Lights, Masonry, Pavers, Plants, Pruning, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 6:52 AM by Administrator

We are very proud of achieving the Angie’s List Super Service Award for our efforts during 2016.  We have continued to focus on listening to our clients and helping our clients obtain the landscapes that achieve their goals.  As a result of this attention to our clients needs and our attention to details and workmanship, we have earned an Angie’s List Super Service Award every year since 2010.  Angie’s List states that less than 5% of companies are awarded a Super Service Award, thus I thank all of the Artistic Landscapes employees (especially Will, Jake & Kevin) for staying focused on each clients’ goals and doing a great job.

Natural stone retaining wall and plants in Rowley, MA

Posted in Masonry, Plants, Pruning, Uncategorized at 7:03 AM by Administrator

We built natural stone retaining walls that have drainage incorporated behind the walls for this Rowley, MA family prior to finishing the area with a variety of plants.  The goal was to create a relaxed natural feel to this family’s backyard and we achieved this goal based on our selection of materials.  For instance, the retaining wall was built by utilizing some of the large boulders that were already on site and combining those stones with smaller stones and mortar to create a natural feel to the stone wall.

A combination of shrubs, perennials and annuals along with a couple of trees were planted to create the colorful but relaxed garden bed.

Granite Bench and Cutting Garden

Posted in Pavers, Plants, Pruning, Uncategorized at 6:52 AM by Administrator

We created a cutting garden for this family who sells their cut flowers to the public and wants to promote having people cut their own flowers.  As a result of listening to their goals, we defined an area that is full of shrubs and perennials that make great cut flowers.  We have a wide variety of plants for people to choose from, thus if you want to cut flowers anytime from late April to late October, there should be some flowers for you to choose from.  We did include some evergreens as the family told us that people sometimes request evergreen branches be included in floral arrangements.  To help people stay on the paths, we formalized the paths with irregular shaped stones and installed a granite bench.
