Here is a customer that needed help with a common problem around the Lake: a steep, uneven topography between the house and the waters edge. A stone paver walkway is an ideal solution, providing a secure and durable pathway to the boathouse. Additionally, the Belgard modular pavers and designs we use are flexible and adaptable … Continue reading Walkway to the Lake
Before we stride confidently into 2019, here is a quick look back on the close of 2018. Neither wind, rain, sleet, or snow stopped our crews in the month of December. When there wasn't outside work to be done, we were doing proposals, often including photos of materials and designs for our customers to choose … Continue reading December
As promised, here are finished photos of major work for this customer involving the tearing up of old plant beds, and the installation of new plants and shrubs, night lighting, and a golf cart path to the boathouse. Click on any photo to get a closer look.
We had occasion to check back in with this customer recently. We seeded and sodded this property some time ago, and installed an irrigation system to keep it healthy. The results were as anticipated, of course, but impressive nonetheless. Well into late Fall the new seed and sod have thrived. Hidden under the sod, but … Continue reading Seed, Sod & Irrigation
It was a night-time scramble by our crews this past Sunday to clear our customers' walkways and parking areas of snow and ice. The work stretched into the next day, but was well worth it as these stores were able to open promptly and insure their customers' safety. … Continue reading Snow!

It's funny; we build these beautiful houses, insulate them and seal them up, but after we've turned … Continue reading Kitchen Alfresco
Not the multi-legged creepy crawly thing, but that staple of modern lawns, centipede grass. We had occasion today to visit a property that had centipede sod installed way back in May of this year. The lawn was not only alive and well, but also holding its deep green color well into November. This is impressive … Continue reading In Praise of the Centipede
Our guys are more than half way through with this project. In addition to the new plant installations, they've also started major grading on a golf cart path to the boathouse. Herewith some interim photos of progress personified. This is the new golf cart path for our customer, so he can ride down the steep … Continue reading Interim Update
As it is written, there is a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted. So, that is what our crews are up to on this particular project: first, tearing out plants and turning the earth; then, planting new material. Ben's Creek Nursery can multi-task. Here is one person tearing … Continue reading As the Earth Turns
