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.

Cedar Railing with 2×2 Lattice

Oh, hi there!  I see you’re looking at our video blog on our Landscape Design and Construction web site.  Thanks for your interest.  I usually write a short introduction of each video, but today I’m lacking creative inspiration so I’ll just state the facts about this short video.  It was shot using an Apple 5 iPhone and edited on iMovie on our iMac.  I used my Makita brand cordless saw to make the cuts and a Makita brand cordless impact driver to attach stainless steel screws to the Western Red Cedar wood and posts.  The rest of the project is heavily guarded trade secret, so shrouded in industrial mystique as to invoke the non-disclosure pact of the ancient code of the Trades Guild Fraternity Provision.  So, please enjoy the video with caution.

 

Thanks:
