Kane Landscapes

Gardening Enthusiasts

Are you ready to take your gardening to the next level? Three years ago, the Kane Team constructed a Garden for one of our clients who is an avid gardener. We designed the garden to mimic those of old England with wide decorative gravel paths bordered in curbstone to allow easy access to the carefully planned garden plats.  A custom built garden room, with bright red French doors,  to keep all the tools, supplies and that ever-so helpful potting bench was centered along the back of the garden and acts as the focal point.  A 54” tall synthetic fence with closely spaced pickets and a metal border along the bottom was installed to keep the deer, rabbits and other hungry critters at bay.  A water line was extended to the garden from the garage and there was even an area designed for a bench under one corner of the garden, which receives some shade in the afternoon.

The Original Garden Installation
Now we are in the final stages of upgrading their garden to include masonry walls and fencing to protect the garden from critters. In addition, we created a small patio sitting area covered by an arbor. Below are progress pictures of the renovation:
Cinder blocks for the front wall of the garden and the pillars are being installed.
Construction of the dry laid flagstone patio.
The garden is starting to take shape as the fencing is installed.

The walls and fencing are up, just doing a little clean-up before the installation of sod.
The arbor is up over the small patio, now we only need paint and plants.

We will install grape vines and other plants once spring comes around. The grape vines will be planted at the base of the arbor.  In years to come they will grow up the arbor, creating an enclosed space with an inviting shade in the summer.  The homeowner, once we have completed our decorative plantings, the homeowner intends to fill the beds with all organic edibles.
