About the Property
This property had been neglected for years. We were tasked with creating and developing a private and gracious retreat in an urban setting. We began by removing years of neglected overgrowth and piles of debris. We installed surface and downspout drains to control the large amount of water discharge.
“Kevin’s passion for landscaping is reflected in the knowledgeable detail and pride that is evident in his work. He is a hands on person who will be on the job from start to finish. He is very good at communicating and problem solving. He does not cut corners and stands behind his work and materials. Our property would look very different without Kevin’s experience and ideas. He has an artists eye for both space and materials. Our usable patio space is greatly enhanced by a very comfortable “sitting” wall that also contributes to retaining the uphill slope of the yard. We continue have strangers and friends who tell us that they enjoy being stopped at the traffic light when they are able to look at our beautiful landscaping. Landscaping is an investment and contributes a great deal to the value of a property. We have learned through experience that protecting the investment is not easy and recognize the importance of hand pruning and continuing attention to detail in maintaining our investment and rely on Kevin for this as well. We recommend Kevin and Norton Landscaping without reservation”

The front was completely renovated with custom plantings, a wide bluestone walkway and a new cobblestone edged driveway. In the rear we designed and constructed a very private sunken bluestone patio with surrounding sitting walls and lush plantings. Wide antique granite steps lead to the upper gardens and lawn areas. Lush border plantings surround the upper lawn area giving this property a resort feel in an urban setting.
