Landscape update of New Customer Property

We are redo the landscape at a new property today in Needham. It is also going to be raining soon, so we will not finish today. Rich and Guillerme are assisting me on this project. The property is next to the home the President of Olin College occupies.

The new owners moved in at the end of last year and we very busy getting settled in and put off this project until now. It is a big redo of the landscape, which the previous owners had let go for a few years.

Before it rains we are going to start the job by blowing off the lawn of winter debris as we are going to be "slice seeding" the entire front yard next week. Next, I started to trim back the ornamental bushes at the front of the house. Once Rich and Guillerme caught up with me they followed behind me and raked out the beds, cut down 3 trees that had fallen over due to the snow and lack of proper maintenance. We only have time to do the front bed and part of the side beds when the rain comes. The guys will only work for so long and then it is time to call it quits for the day. We will be back soon to continue.


  1. i think this property leaves you a huge room to improve it.with your experience,i'm sure you'll do wonders.i just hope that the rain wouldn't be much of a problem for you.good luck on this new project!

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog! It is has been raining for the past two weeks here(NY) off and on. This looks like a beautiful piece of property.

  3. It sounds like you have a fun job. I love gardening, but my yard looks nothing like that.
