Flagstone Pavers in Ipswich

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

This Ipswich family wanted a flagstone walkway/patio that connected their back deck to a door to their garage as this area has been wet and muddy for years. We recommended Belgard’s Mega-Arbel pavers to create the flagstone look with tight seams while keeping the cost down. We installed geotextile fabric under this walkway because we were concerned that the area might get too wet to allow for these pavers to remain in great shape for years to come. We believe the geotextile fabric will provide us with the additional support that is needed when the ground gets very wet.

Small Patio in Newburyport

Posted in Masonry, Pavers, Uncategorized at 6:36 AM by Administrator

This family lives in a historic home in Newburyport with a small backyard and they wanted to be able to use and enjoy more of their yard. Thus, Artistic Landscapes built this patio between their deck and their lawn which provides them a secluded space to sit, grill and relax. We combined Unilock’s Treo pavers in Granite Blend color, as the body of the patio, with Techo-Bloc’s Allegra pavers in Shale gray, accent around the perimeter to give them the contrasting border and look that they wanted.

Uplighting Mature Trees in Beverly

Posted in Landscape Lights, Plants, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 7:03 AM by Administrator

We designed this lighting system to highlight many of the trees that are along the long driveway for this Beverly family. The goal of lighting the trees was to provide the visual appeal of uplighting the branch structure of these trees as well as to have the light reflect off of the trees back towards the driveway. The benefit of having light reflect onto the driveway is that we are able to enable a person to safely walk the driveway at night and be able to see where they are walking.

Andover Walkway

Posted in Masonry, Pavers at 6:59 AM by Administrator

We are very pleased that this Andover family loves the granite steps and paver walkway that we installed for them.  We removed their old steps and deteriorated footing as well as their asphalt walkway so that we were able to update the look of their home with granite slabs and modern pavers by Unilock.  As part of this project, we moved the irrigation lines that were near the walkway as the walkway was moved to be straight off the house rather than at an angle.  We were able to have the pavers in place early enough on October 31st that the trick-or-treaters could get to the house.  The homeowners are so happy that they said “Great job and wonderful hardworking people.  Thank you!!!”

FX Luminaire Landscape Lighting Design Program

Posted in Landscape Lights, Uncategorized at 6:43 AM by Administrator

FX Luminaire is one of the main brands of landscape lights that we use in providing night lighting to our clients.  We have been utilizing their technology and quality lights almost exclusively over the last few years as the families whom we work for like the idea of being able to dim the lights and add colors to the lights.  Many of the lighting systems that we design and install include the FX ZDC (Zoning, Dimming and Color lights) light fixtures.  FX offered a lighting design program throughout 2018 thus we participated in it and have now successfully finished their program. Tony is a Certified Landscape Lighting Designer by FX Luminaire.

For information about how we can help you with a new lighting system or to repair an existing lighting system, please call Tony at 978.948.2900 or visit us at 111 Newburyport Turnpike (Route One), Rowley, MA.

Unilock’s Patio of the Week – July 9, 2018

Posted in Masonry, Pavers at 6:38 AM by Administrator

Unilock, one of the leading manufacturers of concrete pavers, awarded us as having the best patio for the week of July 9, 2018.  This patio was built for a family who live in Newburyport.  The patio contains Beacon Hill Flagstone pavers in Steel Mountain color for the area around the natural stone firepit that we custom built.  A blend of the 3 colors of Copthorne pavers/bricks accent the firepit area as well as the entire patio.  The Copthorne made for a beautiful transition between the Steel Mountain color that we used around the firepit and the Almond Grove color (still Beacon Hill Flagstone pavers) that we used for the patio.

The round sitting wall was built with Unilock’s Brussels Block wall stones and finished with custom cut limestone.  This link will show you the information that is on Unilock’s project of the week page.  https://unilock.com/project-of-the-week/july-9-2018/

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.

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.
