Baxter Mountain Camp, Before and After
The owners of this newly constructed camp were devastated by the amount of trees that were removed for construction. The Moody team planted large native trees along with indigenous shrubs for a natural look to screen the house from the driveway and to restore the woods.
Parker Camp Adirondack High-Peaks, Before and After
The back of this home was a huge valley needing access and a usable outdoor space. Moody’s crew created two boulder staircases to access the lower level from either side of the house. They then built a free flowing flagstone patio from the staircases to the lower level of the home. The area was landscaped using native plantings giving the owners an nice sitting area right outside the door with an “in the woods” feeling.
Lake Placid NY, Before and After
The owner of this newly constructed home in Lake Placid was looking for a more natural access to his yard from the deck. In lieu of building a wooden staircase Moody’s crew constructed a flagstone landing from the wooden steps to connect with a boulder staircase to the flagstone patio on the lower level. Periwinkle was planted in between the boulders to soften the “boulder” look.
Indian Lake NY, Before and After
This Indian Lake camp was built on a steep slope overlooking the lake, there was no convenient lake access nor any usable outdoor space for the homeowners. Moody’s crew was able to give them both while retaining a natural look.
Bear Cub Road, Lake Placid NY, Before and After
Railroad tie steps are not only dated and ugly but they pose safety issues when wet and when they begin to rot. Boulder steps are not only more pleasing to the eye but last for ever.
Mirror Lake Staircase, Lake Placid NY, Before and After
The existing staircase while functional was not at all aesthetic. Moody’s crew built a winding boulder staircase through new perennial gardens on the bank, to the gazebo on the lake.
Mirror Lake Drive Lake Placid NY, Before and After
Although the homeowner needed to retain privacy from the road the old cedar hedge was overgrown. The Moody crew planted a combination of hemlock, spruce, birch, etc. of various heights to screen the road with a more natural, free-form look.
Upper Saranac Lake NY, Before and After
After an extensive renovation to an older camp the existing landscaping was destroyed. In order to give the homeowner screening from the road and create a “woodsy” look around the camp, Moody’s planted a mixture of evergreens and deciduous trees of varying heights between the drive and the courtyard.
