A Garden Crew for All Seasons

We power thru February rains in the current project.  Fortunately the young people who make up our workforce are stalwart and hearty in nature.  But, there’s a bright side- a rainbow!

 

Enjoy the mini-drama!

 

Lots-a Rocks!

We built another terraced set of rock walls.  This one was nearly 60 feet long.  We built a set of rustic stairs to get access to the yard, a luxury cedar fence with a simple gateway trellis over a garden gate.  Also, even though I’m not showing it we added an extension on an existing wood deck.  Enjoy.

 

Bluestone Garden Bench

Here’s a short video of a garden bench Nancy designed that we built for the current project.  I get a lot of satisfaction out of building with stone.

 

Please enjoy the video of the process.

 

Nancy’s Office Window Planter Box

Here’s the lovely planting for early fall 2016.  Nancy wondered why I was bothering to make a movie of it, but this topic embodies three of my favorite things; Nancy, Nancy’s plants and Nancy’s office.

Please enjoy the slideshow starring Daphne, Chrysanthemum, Wire Vine, Heuchera and Spirea.

Closely-fit flagstone patio

I made a simple slideshow video to illustrate a variety of flagstone installation that we take pride in; the jigsaw shaped and fitted stones that make up this style of patio.  It takes patience and a good supply of high quality flagstones to achieve this level of work.  This is a project where we built the hardscape in September and will return to plant the landscape in the fall.
