Concrete Walkway Replacement

February 12,2012 by

Old damaged sidewalks not only bring down home values and are ugly, but they can be dangerous as well and should be repaired or replaced when possible. The walkway can either be re-poured or replaced with bricks or other stone alternatives. The cost to replace an existing sidewalk by pouring new concrete or with standard bricks is roughly the same and usually comes down to owner preference. If you are looking for a little bit of both then stamped concrete … Continue reading

Brick patio

February 12,2012 by

  This home in East Greenbush is owned by a nice couple who wanted to expand their outdoor living space. When they bought the house a small deck was attached to the rear of the home with a sliding glass door access way.   Instead of an expensive rehab of the deck (which could have used a little TLC) or adding on to the existing deck, or the even more expensive option of tearing down the deck and starting over … Continue reading

Canadian Hemlock

Canadian Hemlock- Privacy fence

A row of Canadian Hemlocks behind a pool area make a perfect privacy screening year-round along with other popular evergreens such as Arborvitae. Additional fencing may be installed around such landscaping techniques, making it a popular choice in many backyards.   Such trees are fairly inexpensive compared to other more decorative and specialty trees that can be commonly found in landscapes around the area. Additionally, both Hemlock and Arborvitae grow very well in the Northeast. Plus they can be easily … Continue reading

Time to swab the decks!

May 11,2011 by
How to treat your deck

Decks aren’t cheap.   No matter what the situation. Whether you’re hiring a contractor, doing it yourself, or having your crazy cousin Larry do it for you, you just can’t get around it: Decks are expensive. The materials, the fasteners, the tools, the permits, the time:   All of it, expensive, expensive, expensive!   Unless you’re building a wooden stoop and calling it a deck, you are looking at spending at least over a $1,000 and into the thousands. So … Continue reading

Spring has finally sprung

April 10,2011 by

Well, it’s been a long, hard and never-ending winter it seems.  The cold refused to leave, the snow formed mini frozen glaciers along driveways and parking lots (some of which are still holding on until tomorrow anyways). But finally … spring has decided to grace us with her wonderful presence. The birds chirping, the warm breezes, plants budding, tulips popping, people are happy — the whole nine. It’s a time of year to start anew, to reflect upon the past year … Continue reading

Brick Walkway

March 11,2011 by
These block steps and paver brick walkway were built at a home in Bethlehem.

These block steps and paver brick walkway were built at a home in Bethlehem. With the house being on a hill, there was no access from the front door to the driveway without walking over the lawn and up and down the hill slope.

Flower Beds

February 28,2011 by

This Guilderland home had some raised beds that were not edged or enclosed. There was nothing to separate the lawn from creeping into the flowers and nothing keeping the mulch and dirt from creeping out.

It’s Snow Good

February 27,2011 by

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. If your plants and trees could sing, that would be their winter anthem.  Even though you may bemoan the fact that you have to shovel (again!), this year’s record snow falls are a very good thing for your plants and gardens. It may even wind up saving you a few bucks and a lot of disappointment when you finally do get out there and survey the damage left behind by old … Continue reading

Ashes to Ashes

February 26,2011 by

Warmer days do appear to be on the horizon, but many of us are still warming up next to the fire as our thoughts begin to wander to outside.  For those who have fireplaces they also begin wondering what to do with the buckets of ash that have accumulated all winter long.   The simple solution is to combine the two (the ash and outside, not your thoughts because after being cooped up all winter you certainly don’t need any … Continue reading
