This home in Ridgefield CT. was a nice project many years ago. It filled in beautifully through the years and gave the family a large level space to gather and recreate. If I knew then what I know now about water features, that slope would have had an awesome water feature on it.
Unfortunatley, this year it was ripped out for a pool.........Well, at least I have some nice photos of it before it was destroyed. Enjoy

New Deck & Pergola

Nice transformation from a contractors pressure treated deck to a composite deck with a pergola, benches, and a newly terraced backhill all leveled and ready for play

love the fish, crafts, Washers took the place of real eyes


I was teaching my Justina how to carve tonight when I made a mistake and cut the supports for the eyes out on my kissing fish pumpkins. I told her that it was okay and we would find a way to get some eyes for the fish. A couple of 3/4" washers and glue and wouldn't you know it, this was better than the eyes we would have had

Landscape Lighting For Your Home and Landscape

The way to achieve extraordinary results from landscape lighting:

When this homeowner purchased their home, they did so fully aware that to really enjoy it, it needed to be transformed. 750 cubic yards of rock ledge removed and 6 months of my contractors on a daily basis is all forgotten about now. Why leave home when your vacation is outside your own back door.
