We got a call in the fall of 2013 from these folks who were looking to have their Lake Winnipesaukee shorefront property re-landscaped. There was an old walkway going from the driveway, along the home, extending to the shorefront area.
There wasn’t much useable space for entertaining, and the area lacked ‘appeal’. The first thing we did was to call in our DES expert for the permitting process so that we could determine what we were able to do. The permit required that we only be able to have a certain amount of PERMEABLE pavers within a specified distance from the shoreline.
There were a couple of changes that were done as the project progressed. The retaining wall next to the shoreline deck had a concrete footing installed. The ledge outcropping ended up being larger than expected, and we had to adjust the patio around it and used cobble edgers to do this. Also, the steps that went up from the patio to the walkway were originally planned to have landings in between the steps, but since there was ledge here as well, the steps went up all at once instead of with landings. Look at how nice that ledge looks next to those steps!
CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL -
“We recently hired Landscapes by Tom to build a stone patio, granite steps, stone walls, and stone walkway. After this experience we would highly recommend Tom and his crew. Both Tom and Martha listened to our needs and came up with a plan that was all we wanted and more. Martha’s plan transformed our uneven, disjointed waterfront space into a beautiful place to entertain. The plan worked well with existing features of the property and flowed perfectly.
Brent and crew got a big project done quickly, and the stone walls are a work of art.
Overall, the results exceeded our expectations.”
