HONOR AWARD
BULONE BROTHERS LANDSCAPING, INC.
http://www.bulonebrothers.com/
Bulone Brothers were originally asked to come out the fix a leaky pond, but the
job turned into creating a new water feature and backyard landscape. The
biggest challenge of this job was creating height for the water falls because of
the negative grade. The falls were separated into 2 sections. The Koi are now
happy swimming around in their much larger space. Lush plantings soften the
stone and make the water feature look natural.

The client requested and Master Plan for the back and side yards that
incorporated this multi-level water feature. The water feature starts a with a
pool at the upper patio near the fireplace and flows 2 stories down into a lower
pool. The edges of the upper pool are planted with colorful groundcover sedum
plants to allow views into the upper waterfall. The pedestrian traffic actually
crosses the water feature with a natural stone bridge. As the sun sets, the
landscape lighting keeps the backyard water feature alive through the
evening hours.

The clients recently expanded their residence into the hillside and wanted
something attractive to draw people outdoors. While clearing the hillside,
several large boulders were uncovered. Underlayment and a rubber liner were
used to prevent any water leaks. Flatter stones were used to create the
waterfalls and rugged boulders were used to line the sides. Stone steps and
colorful plants complete the look

KGK GARDENING AND DESIGN CORPORATION

As part of an overall landscape redesign project, a multi-tiered water feature
was installed between an existing pool and a new outdoor pavilion. The familys
Great Dane enjoys taking a refreshing afternoon dip in the heat of the summer.
A riverstone base and layered sandstone boulders are used to replicate a
natural serpentine stream. The sandstone was carefully measured, leveled and
tested to ensure the even distribution of the spilling water. The pavilion is
accessed by a suspended sandstone bridge that traverses the meandering
stream.
