Landscape Construction | Landscape Design
With combined experience of over 45 years, our Landscape Construction division does it all! Our specialty is outdoor living: patios, pergolas, walkways, pondless waterfalls, and outdoor kitchens. We can handle all phases of Landscape Construction, and work very closely with subcontractors to get the job done on time and on budget. Here is a list of other services. If you don’t see what you are looking for, just ask. We can probably do it, or refer you to someone who can.
Patios and Walkways: Patios are a great way to get people out of the house and enjoy the outdoors. Get the most out of your backyard! Entertain 5 people, or 50. Patios are an Affordable and Low maintenance way to improve the look of your backyard
Firepits and Fireplaces: Custom-built, or in easy to install kits, Fire is another element of nature that’s a must-have in all outdoor spaces. Gather your friends and family around to toast marshmallows or grill burgers.
Outdoor Kitchens: The epitome of Outdoor Entertainment-and surprisingly a big bang for the buck! Stainless Steel Appliances, direct gas hookups, and plumbing for that sink.Usable April-November, outdoor kitchens keep the party outside, and require little to no maintenance at all.
Pondless Waterfalls: Water-another essential element in outdoor living. The sound of water rippling down a stone waterfall can invigorate the soul. Just the sound of water is relaxing. Add plants in and around them, and you’ve got yourself one special focal point in your property. Because they are pondless, they are Super Low Maintenance – no need to take care of fish, or worry about the health of the water anymore. Just run it and forget it!
Low Voltage Landscape Lighting: We design the lighting to your specific needs and requirements. Lighting in an outdoor environment should not be glaring or ominous. It should be carefully planned to accent architectural features, illuminate stairways, and cast fun shadows on trees. These systems can be run all year long, and the bulbs last a LONG time, and use very little electricity!
Stone Walls: Our skilled mason can Veneer existing Concrete Walls and foundations, build Sitting Walls and Retaining Walls, and repair existing Stonework. Built to look as natural as possible, Stone Walls, when built properly can last hundreds of years and be appreciated for generations.
Plantings: We can install anything from small plants to 20′+ trees all personally selected by Joshua Harris. The use and proper planning of trees, shrubs and perennials can give you a landscape that can last you a lifetime. Most plantings are purchased from local New England farms for the quickest establishment and healthiest landscape.
Paver Driveways: These driveways are built with toughness in mind. With a 1-2′ compacted gravel base and pavers that can withstand over 12,000 lbs. of pressure, our driveways are not going anywhere. The average asphalt driveway has less than 6” of compacted gravel. No wonder you have bumps and cracks! We believe that overkill in this type of project is necessary-and affordable too. Gravel is cheap, so why not go the extra mile to have a driveway that won’t sink, heave, or puddle? Our driveways are expected to last 75yrs+.
Drainage Systems and Drywells: Keeping water away from your investment is a must.That might mean creating a simple drain hookup from your gutter, or tying in all gutters to a drywell-out of sight-out of mind. French drains around foundations and perimeter drains along the edge of your property to catch water and send it away from your home and landscape can be installed with careful planning.
New Lawns Installed: We can custom blend compost and loam to get the best soil in the neighborhood. Top it off with a high quality sod, or hydroseed and you’ve got yourself one sweet lawn! We have bobcats and trucks to do the hauling. Great lawns start at the soil, and we prepare it the right way every time.
Sprinkler Systems: Offered by a friend of Harris and Company: Doug, from Blackstone Valley Irrigation (click on his company name for Superpages listing) We work closely with Blackstone Valley to design and install the most efficient and cost-effective sprinkler system. We are responsible with water use and use the most up-to-date sprinkler clock technology and drip irrigation practices to save resources and your wallet.
