Sod Installation at the Chelka Lodge-in time for the Summer Season

The Chelka Lodge located in Diamond Point on Lake George recently completed a large remodeling project of their lakeside units. The resort is located on 400-feet of shoreline in a very quiet bay on the west side of Lake George and has 25-units.

DeFranco Landscaping was contacted to install sod on a portion of the lawn area that had been disturbed during construction. The timeframe and deadline for completion of the work was tight with Memorial Day fast approaching. All deadlines were met and the irrigation system was extended to provide sprinklers in the new sod locations.

Hague Veteran’s Memorial Park- One Year Later

We wanted to post a few more pictures of the Hague Veteran’s Memorial Park, 1-year after the project was completed so viewers can see how well the site looks.

Wild flowers and vegetation were established on the steep banks in the background that had previously experienced erosion problems prior to DeFranco Landscaping’s hydroseeding and stabilizing the banks with the placement of erosion control blankets.

DeFranco Landscaping completes landscaping at Hague Veteran’s Park

DeFranco Landscaping recently completed the landscape installation work at the Town of Hague Veteran’s Park. The design of the park was completed by Elan Planning, Landscape Design.

The scope of the work included weeding and removing the vegetation on a very steep bank that between Overbrook Road and Hague Brook. A prior attempt to stabilize the banks was not as successful and had washed out with deep erosion channelling down the banks. The banks had also been topdressed with a soil containing Japanese Knotweed, an invasive plant.

DeFranco Landscaping attempted to properly remove the Japanese Knotweed from the site by weeding by hand. The banks were then hydroseeded with a NY native wild flower mix along with placing an erosion control fabric over the area to help stabilize the bank. The lower part of the slope was planted with myrtle, Vinca minor.

The park area was prepped for lawn and sodded  with a blend of kentucky blue grass sod.

Feel free to contact DeFranco Landscaping about your erosion control or stormwater projects. Their crews have a certified Erosion & Sediment Control (E&SC) trained personnel on staff and in conjunction with a licensed NYS professional engineer, Anthony W. DeFranco, PE-Consulting Engineer they can provide you with the necessary design guidance and recommendations to make your project a success.
