Kerns Landscaping Feature - Ciampa House ... in more detail

Our landscaping business continues to grow.  We are doing a lot of work with home owners on the Catskills Mountaintop.  
Here we showcase our work on the Ciampa house project in a woodlands setting.  This and other Kerns Landscaping Features show you examples and explain fresh new landscaping ideas that we employ when we approach a new project.    

Go to other Kerns Landscaping Features: our Hilltop project, a Hillside project, our work at the Boyle and Manuel houses, new pages showcasing our exciting project on the Bruno house and a new Project Sampler highlighting several different landscapes.   Also see our Old-fashioned Gardens, Patios, Rock Gardens, Walkways and Woodland Themes.

You may find the ideas useful and adaptable to your own setting.   We have an experienced team at Kerns and would be very happy to discuss ideas about a project for you.

Ciampa House project:   This landscaping project, in a woodland setting, again used our experience constructing retaining walls made of typical Catskill mountain stone, building stone stairs and incorporating large rocks and new trees and shrubs into the existing woodland.  Click on the images to go to a page of more large photos of this project.
 
We used a lot of Catskills stone for walls and walkways and planted new fir trees.

Ciampa House project:   We used a lot of local stone, for steps, walls, walkways and borders.  The house is located on a hillside in a woodland.  We added many evergreen trees and bushes, many planted on newly constructed terraces above our new stone walls.

New stone terraces are part of this project, as well as channel for a small stream that gets bigger in the rain

 

We used a lot of Catskills stone for walls, walkways and borders.

A house in a woodland has the advantage of shade in the hot summer and of seeing, close-up, the fabulous Catskills Fall colors.  However, it also has the disadvantage, for many months, or losing the color when the leaves are gone.  Aside from building stone walls and walkways, we used many large evergreen trees and evergreen bushes to add all-year-round color.

Here are our new stone walls and evergreen trees


This the continuation of the view above, from the stairway on up.  And more evergreen trees ...

Many new evergreen trees were planted around the house

For your new landscaping project, we will draw on the wide resources of the Kerns Nursery, and on a wide network of suppliers.  All plants and materials that we will use in your project will be suited to the Catskills climate and soils.
