Clean Green Landscaping in Putnam Valley; From Design to Construction and Installation with Native Plants and Natural Stone

You are only as good as your resources allow ! This means skilled workmanship and the best natural materials. In this case we used large quarried fieldstone to create a one of a kind stepping stone staircase with a boulder rail set on rammed earth with a gravel sub-base with native gravel mulch.

Storm water management is key to success before, during and after construction. Good planning and staging of materials makes all the difference in the ultimate success of a large scale project like this. The work included an irregular flagstone stepping stone path constructed with a compacted item #4 sub-base with stone dust bedding. Some joints were filled with topsoil for planting herbs and steppables as perennial ground cover.

The front lawn was removed mechanically to allow for a predominately native perennial and grass garden. Local compost as well as a special blend of soil amendments and enhancers including BioChar was incorporated into the planting mix to insure optimum performance. The soil surface was also treated with biostimulants such as Plant Magic and Quantum Growth. Yucca was applied to help with irrigation. Stay tuned to our You Tube Channel for more info on this project as well as the design development process.
