DeFranco Landscaping: 1 Hurricane Irene: 0

Last week, many areas within the Adirondacks, Capital Region and Vermont were severely punished by Hurricane Irene’s heavy rainfall and high winds which also resulted in flooding of many streams and rivers.

Our recently constructed  driveway, stormwatwer swales and basins were able to easily withstand the punishing rain from Hurricane Irene last week. There were no wash-outs in the new driveway! This driveway had previously been experiencing significicant wash-outs from runoff from NYS Route 9N.

The drainage patterns were corrected during the project to re-direct the runoff to approriate drainge swales to convey runoff to new stormwater basins where it is contained on-site.

We were very pleased with the outcome. Take that Hurricane Irene.

Shoreline Buffers can add Color to your Property

DeFranco Landscaping installed a shrub buffer of native plants along the shoreline of Lake George to help protect the shoreline from erosion and help frame the view from the front patio of the dwelling.

 Native plants thrive without fertilizer and filter runoff which reduce the amount of sediment and nutrients from enteringLake George. The buffer also provides privacy, screening out light and noise from lake activities, while framing a beautiful view.


Shoreline Buffer - Lake George


This buffer was planted last year and the shrubs and flowers have really infilled the buffer bed.

DeFranco Landscaping can provide you with native plant material that can thrive in the Adirondack region and along the Lake George shoreline.
