Our clients in Freehold, NJ asked us to design a peaceful garden retreat in their backyard. We designed and built a boulder wall to raise the grade of the garden space to accommodate bluestone walkways & steps, a fountain, garden room, lighting, and privacy plantings. We are currently designing plantings for the entire backyard!

A beautiful 75 acre farm located along the eastern Pennsylvania Delaware River basin was the perfect setting for this large private pool and spa designed and under construction by Liquidscapes and several other professionals.  We were retained to install the granite pool and spa decks.

The residence dates back to 1788.  The 1 acre property backs up to East Amwell valley.  The barn and home sit at a high elevation and the land slopes to a central low point where a small brook flows through the property.  Behind the brook, the elevation increases again and ends at a farm field that extends into the valley.

Soil conditions vary from dry to flowing water.  Deer pressure is high.  My family and I reside on this land and it serves as my testing grounds for new perennials and shrubs.  I work in my gardens almost every Sunday.  My wife and I expand our organic vegetable garden a little bit every year.  I have converted the rear lawn into a meadow and design new walking paths once a year.  We have six chickens who enjoy our meadow and we enjoy their eggs!

I am in the process of converting the second story of our barn into Garden Artisans East Amwell landscape design and build studio.  I am also in the early site analysis stage of creating a master plan for the property.  I am fortunate to own an interesting historic home, barn, and property.  I am excited to develop my land into something that my family will enjoy forever!

This project was designed and built almost 20 years ago when Peter worked for another firm. The client designed the geometric top rail pattern of the fence herself!  Many weeks were spent on a drill press for this custom build.  The porches and fence were hand crafted out of mahogany and the terrace was built with granite.

The residence is located on a 3-acre lot with a scenic wooded backdrop.  The client wanted a high quality outdoor dining room, lounge, and grilling terrace.  We used the best quality natural bluestone for this project.  The textures and fossil patterns in this natural cleft bluestone were superb.  Smooth bluestone treads were used to border the dining area and for inlays to create textural contrast.  Custom bullnose treads were used for the natural stone porches.  Check out the frosty picture of the bluestone!
