Previously done projects.
With water gardens every project is unique and left up to ones imagination. We make every effort to make
these projects blend into the surronding landscape. Our passion is to build these projects with the highest
quality materials and plants to provide you with many years of worry free enjoyment. When complete these
projects will add great value to your property and make your little Peace of Paradise more enjoyable.

Cohasset Project
This was a very unique job because of the scituation. It was located on a steep, sloped area of solid ledge.
The traditional water garden materials couldn't be used making it a real challenge.
The home owner, Marilyn Chenault Minot, is a certified interior designer with more than 25 years experience and she loves the looks of this water feature.
Please visit her web site at MCM Design Management, LLC.

Scituate Project
The rock garden was built in an area where a title 5 septic tank was installed and grass would not grow.
The retaining wall for this same title 5 system, needed plants to hide the top and give the areaa some interest.

Carver Project
This was a typical attempt of a home owner to build a water garden. He had the right idea,
however, lacked the experience to make it work.

Rebuilding and improving an existing pond. After completion.

Hingham Project
This was a do it yourself help project. Lisa needed professional help with the rocks and mechanical
parts of the water garden. Lisa is owner of Lisa Berkins Designs, a professional container gardener who
uses uncommon plant material purchased at Hillbilly-Acres.com

Start of Hingham job Work in progress
Work starts on the focal
point of the project -
The Waterfall.
The Waterfall starts to take
on a life of its own.

Work continuing Finished
Dee very carefully selects the best
stone to give the project that
natural look.
The finished waterfall. The water garden
still needs some detail work.

Marshfield Project
This was a bit of a challenge to make the pond fit into the landscape and
keep its natural look, as with all ponds and waterfalls.

Norwell Project
This pond was built with a typical pre-molded
plastic liner to make it simple for the typical home
owner to build a samall pond. They are very difficult to
conceal into the landscape and very difficult to keep from growing algea.
I don't recommend them for these reasons. With a little imagination and effort
they can be made into a natural setting. They have their limits.

Norwell Project Norwell Project
Preformed plastic pond (not recommened)
existing water garden which the owner
wasn't happy with.
Finished water garden with waterfall two days later
ready for planting in the spring.
