Coastal Groove Living: Poolscape Renovation in Mamaroneck

Sometimes you walk onto a property and wonder how it possibly came to be designed, built and maintained to its current state. That was the case at this property in Mamaroneck, which had a picket fence encircling the small pool area, disrupting sight views from the house and all other areas of the backyard. Instead of seeing the calming, serene pool, your eye was immediately drawn to the pickets! The space felt unnecessarily small and contained, and circulation from the covered pavilion area to the pool area was completely disrupted. Not to mention, every corner of the yard was flanked by a shed. Why so many sheds?! We were hired by the new homeowners for a complete Landscape Master Plan and installation.

Storm Water Lab: Porous Pave vs. Asphalt

In a world of aslphalt and concrete...not all hardsape is created equal! Water is a PRECIOUS resource. We are fortunate in the Northeast to have an abudnace of fresh water. However, traditional city storm water management systems pipe away storm water instead of allowing it to infiltrate into the aquifers. This Porous Pave system replaced four layers of asphalt driveway at this Rye residence, and now allows for 100% storm water infiltration. (Asphalt is 0% permeable, by contrast).

Stream Construction, Pond Restoration and Hillside Planting in New Canaan CT

We received a call earlier this spring from a New Canaan pondowner with a morbid situation. The homeowner was instructed to apply various purportedly natural-source pond cleaning products into the small constructed pond on the property. This pond cleaner cocktail created some unknown reaction, and within thirty minutes, all the fish were belly up. GJL was hired to restore the pond’s water quality; create a cascading stream into the pond;replant the adjacent hill with native perennials; and construct a pathway, staircase, and patio landing aside the pond.

The possibilities for reducing and, in some cases, eliminating expensive and invasive subsurface drainage systems are huge!
