Naturescapes specializes in creating Villanova stream beds and walkways.
Pathways are an excellent addition to virtually any yard. In addition to being great for navigational purposes, walkways also add value to your landscape. They direct the eye and give your yard shape and personality.
Typically, we install flagstone or fieldstone pathways in various cuts including irregular, thermal, and square. Every client receives a unique style that requires minimal maintenance and will last for years to come.
A closer look at a Villanova property…
These former clients called us back for a second project at their Villanova property. They needed a safe and stylish path leading from their home to the backyard patio.
First, we created a sitting area in their woods where they could sit in the shade during the warmer summer months. We created this sitting area of irregular flagstone and installed a matching stepping stone pathway to their lawn area.
Next we created a ‘dry stream bed’ to channel water from summer storms and heavy rains that previously had caused erosion through their lawn. The various sizes of river rocks punctuated with larger boulderettes (our term for small boulders) provides a more natural, aesthetically pleasing and functional addition.
Lastly we leveled an area by the side of their garage for a potting table. We laid machine cut flagstone atop crushed stone to provide a safe and level area and installed three 4’ wide machine cut bluestone steps for easy access.
