Kerns Landscaping Feature - Hilltop ... in detail

Our landscaping business has grown in recent years.  We have done a lot of work with home owners on the Catskills Mountaintop.  
Here we highlight several recent projects and describe our design ideas and approaches to some very different settings.  These Kerns Landscaping Features show you examples and explain some fresh new ideas that we employ when we approach a new project, whether we start afresh or when we add to or rebuild existing gardens and woodlands. 

Go to other Kerns Landscaping Features: our Hillside project, our work at the Boyle and Manuel houses, new pages showcasing our exciting projects on the Bruno house, the Ciampa 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.

This project presented two different challenges: a house with stunning views of the Catskills Mountains, that were to be preserved at all costs, and an exposed area, windswept, dry and parched by the hot summer sun.
 

These photos show the rock work and plant material that leads from  around the side and to the rear of the house.  This was an important area to the family because of the beautiful view.  We made the space more inviting by incorporating a step stone stair, a winding pathway and retainer walls.  We incorporated a rock garden along the exterior of the walkway and added a birdbath and sitting bench in the area.

Kerns Nursery solution:
  Native field stone was laid by experienced hands for a professional and natural appearance.



Kerns Nursery solution:  Stone borders around flower beds.  A large rock garden.  Stone walls.  A large collection of plants that can like a lot of direct sun.  Stunning views from the house over the Mountaintop are preserved.  Stone walkways complement the slate entrance and use local materials.

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 we will use in your project will be suited to the Catskills climate and soils.
