Kerns Landscaping Feature - Bruno House ... in more detail

Our landscaping business continues to grow.  We are doing a lot of work with home owners on the Catskills Mountaintop.  
Here we showcase a big project on the Bruno house overlooking Ski Windham and Hunter Mountain.  This and other Kerns Landscaping Features show you examples and explain fresh new landscaping ideas that we employ when we approach a new project.  In this one, we started afresh, on a "Greenfield" site, actually when you see the photos, it more of a "brown field" site when we started, and ended up with beautifully lansdscaped gardens, typically Catskill stone walls and terraces, a pond, mature trees, a fire pit, walkways and stairs.  

Go to other Kerns Landscaping Features: our Hilltop project, a Hillside project, our work at the Boyle and Manuel houses, new pages showcasing our exciting project on the Ciampa house and a new Project Sampler highlighting several different landscapes.   Also see our Old-fashioned Gardens, Patios, Rock Gardens, Walkways and Woodland Themes.

You may find the ideas useful and adaptable to your own setting.   We have an experienced team at Kerns and would be very happy to discuss ideas about a project for you.

Here is the house before Kerns Nursery landscaping.

Bruno House project:   This large work combined our rock and staircase design with retaining walls made of typical Catskill mountain stone, along with many tall trees, rock gardens, a fire pit and flower beds.   Here is the house before Kerns landscaping.  Views of Ski Windham and Hunter Mountain in the background.
This is the finished landscaping job.  We enjoyed working on the Bruno house project.

We used a lot of flat slab Catskill stone on the project.
