               West Cornwall, Conn.

The owners of this French styled cottage are busy career individuals. They wanted to weave all the elements present on their property into an integral whole.  However, they had been frustrated in their attempts at a Landscape design from other firms. This property was largely filled in, bounded on one side with a stream, and on the other with runoff from the mountains. Also existing was the typical New England farmer's woe of rocks, rocks, and more rocks, which of course we used!
The stone wall installation (photograph below) was low and narrower than most are. This is far more difficult to create then the typical wider and taller stone walls that are seen thru-out New England. To keep the structure's stability, it was necessary to alleviate drainage problems with underground trenching and piping. The extra work is what makes for a lasting wall and is part and parcel of the PRIDE we take in each and every Masonry and Garden Installation.

A Faire Glen from a pile of rubble!

The photograph on the right represents the winding stone pathway to the faerie mound, which now has a large stone table and four moss covered boulders for seating. The area was planted with  wildflowers from the property. These included three varieties of trillium, five varieties of ferns including Maidenhair, wild orange columbine, genetians, oxtails, lichen , and digitalis.  A frog tunnel is not shown in the photograph, because it is located around a curve in the pathway . This froggy residence has been outfitted with a looking glass inside and a tiny bench outside the front door. A shelf by this door holds a miniature bell and a small moss covered pot. Friendly miniature ducks greet the visitor, and when a child looks inside the tunnel she/he sees themselves smiling back. The owner's children love this faerie glen and spend much joyful time in it. The owners had this to say, and I quote, "Accolades on your efforts. We are very happy with the results. The children are enchanted".
