Ecology + Design

#4 Terraced, Erosion-Proof Woodland Landscape | Lake Peekskill, NY | Best Landscape Designs of 2021

Coming in at number four is a project very near and dear to our hearts, because of just how much time, sweat and manpower went into making it a reality. We won’t lie, this project was complicated to execute! A steep slope along Lake Peekskill, NY with one entry point made for a by-hand only installation.  Extensive erosion control devices were critical to the success of the new natural stone garden terraces. Together, they allowed us to greatly expand the planting area. The new biomass of the planting has a ripple effect, ecologically speaking. The landscape is now a more layered and biodiverse habitat for pollinators, and as a whole the landscape can absorb more stormwater, thereby reducing erosion and conserving soil.

We blogged about the details of the project a while back, catch up here — Landscape Design in a Wetland Zone: Erosion Control & Bioengineering
