Landscaping Design & Construction
We typically start with a conceptual landscape design for your property and then collaborate with you to make sure you are happy with the design before it gets built. We then obtain the necessary permits and approvals to construct the project. We can completely renovate beds with new landscape plantings and can restore lawn areas by topdressing, hydroseeding or sod installation. We always look at using sustainable design, as well as selecting native plants and shrubs where feasible.
Hardscaping Design & Construction
Our crews can construct attractive patios, walkways, fire pits, outdoor kitchens, lakeshore accesses, and more! Our hardscaping crews are experts within their trade, they’ve been trained in I.C.P.I. techniques (Interlocking Concrete Paver Institute). Some of our favorite products of choice are locally quarried natural granite and quartzite stone, bluestone and concrete pavers. We can use natural boulders or quarried granite stone, found locally, to create retaining walls or retainers with planting pockets for vegetation.
Having specialized crews that are certified in Erosion & Sediment Control and expertise in proper stormwater management is an asset to our customers along the lakeshore. Our crews recognize erosion control problems on your property that need protecting. Our designers use the latest green infrastructure techniques with native plants that require minimal maintenance for stormwater and erosion control. In the past, we’ve constructed permeable paver driveways, rain gardens, vegetated swales and shoreline buffers with native plantings because these methods are proven to reduce surface runoff and can be very attractive, while providing the most cost-effective long-term solutions to keeping sediment and other pollutants from reaching Lake George.
