Hilltown Tree & Garden’s Home Office Patio

Chesterfield, MA

Hilltown Tree & Gardens home office was built in 2003. All aspects of the home office & landscape personify sustainability. This project will focus on the new Goshen Stone Patio Jim built. All stone for the patio, walls & walks were quarried off the land. The house is built on ledge so stone came out of the ground as a result of excavating. Stone was put in multiple piles based on size & shape. Over the years, various projects for clients and for the home office were done using this stone.

After: With raised vegetable garden beds in the distance, Lisa, the landscape drafter, enjoys the afternoon with our daughter Priya. The stones range in size from 6-25 square feet and in weights of 200-2000 pounds.

Before 2002, the landscape design phase: The land was heavily wooded & rocky. But properly designed these liabilities become assets.

After installation perennial gardens & stone paths were installed for beauty and access. For shade, a deciduous ‘Heritage’ River birch was planted on the south side of the patio. The gardens & patio are just outside a picture window in the living room. When plants were chosen, an evaluation of the year round ornamental attributes was critical.
