If you have driven down NYS Route 9N-you’ve probably already noticed the new sign.  Here’s a photo if you are away from Lake George for the winter. It showcases our two businesses that really compliment one another.

Patios make great Outdoor Living Spaces

Adding a patio can extend your living space to the outdoors.  Locating the patio in a good location can provide unique views that can only be seen from that spot. They provide a location for entertaining family and friends, whether it be relaxing and watching a sunset after a long day on the water or relaxing in Adirondack chairs with your favorite wine or beverage of choice. Patios should be functional and sized to accommodate family barbeques and other social gatherings.

 

 

Layout and pedestrian flow should be looked at by the designer to make sure that accessibility does not become an issue. Attention to focal points and destinations on the property should be highlighted to create a consistent flow path to docks, entrances, parking areas and viewpoints on the property.

Adding other features, such as a fire pit extend the family time into the evening.  These outdoor locations can be a great morning spot watching the sunrise with a cup of your favorite coffee or watching the sunset with your favorite bottle of wine.

More Green Infrastructure around the Lake George Basin

Crews from DeFranco Landscaping have been busy installing numerous rain gardens around the Lake George basin. We have been working with many lakefront property owners and home builders, starting with the designs and then finishing the installations. We have been fortunate to return over the years to maintain what we have built and make observations on what works and what hasn’t worked. This hands-on approach helps us to improve our  rain garden installations with each location’s unique site characteristics.

 

 

Our projects continue to get more complex. We believe that our work says it all, however we do have the credentials and experience that many of the local industry leaders and local environmental groups have come to rely on. It is our expertise and continued dedication to protecting the lake. We know we are doing a good job at what we are creating when we get these type of referrals! We appreciate all of those referrals. Keep them coming… We will continue to impress.
