Project Description

This newly constructed residence required complete landscape development. The owner desired a natural setting, bringing elements from his Vermont property to his Massachusetts residence. The highlight of the landscape is an expansive water feature that includes a large fishing pond, a series of smaller ponds, and waterfalls all connected by a creek. The property also includes outdoor living, a pool, and finely finished lawns and plantings.

Our work began with an enormous excavation to create the water feature. The main body of water consisted of a 20 foot deep pond designed to create a habitat for large fish native to New England. This required a substantial concrete pour and an intricate pump system, providing functionality to the stream and waterfalls. The water feature was accented by large boulders that our team hand-selected with the property owner from his land in Vermont. The pool area was surrounded by a large deck finished with natural cleft bluestone handpicked to meet a certain color hue. The property was completed with the installation of sod and intricate land and aquatic plantings.
