Stormwater Management Swales & Infiltration Basins

DeFranco Landscaping recently completed a stormwater management project in Hague, which included the installation of armored rip-rap swales and infiltration basins to meet the requirements of the Lake George Park Commission. The project had a very tight deadline based on a potential enforcement action.

Planting Beds Renovated at Town of Hague Beach

DeFranco Landscaping recently removed plantings at the Town of Hague Beach that had been defoliated by the Viburnum Leaf Beetle, Pyrrhalta viburni. The viburnum plants were specified and installed under a previous project.  DeFranco Landscaping removed the defoliated plants, re-established the planting beds and installed new plant material, primarily native plant species that are hardy and can survive with limited watering.

The Town Beach has a very high water table and has a blend of fill materials on site. It also is a well-known hang-out for “local” Canada geese due to the large un-buffered lawn area.

If you are experiencing plant or insect problems, please contact DeFranco Landscaping for a consultation. David DeFranco has over 30-years of experience with working with plants and has a science degree (taught science in the Hague and Ticonderoga School Districts). He will be able to diagnose your insect, plant, etc. problem and provide you with the guidance on what mother nature has thrown your way.

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.
