Project One: Private Residence, St. John’s, NL

This complete landscape installation project included construction of dry laid natural stone walls, patios and steps.

This project was the winner of the Landscape Newfoundland and Labrador Award of Excellence for Residential Landscape Construction in 2016.

 


Project Two: Private Residence, St. John’s, NL

This complete landscape design and installation project included construction of a custom tiered deck and patio system. It also included the installation of modular block raised planting beds, and the installation of the plants and mulch. The construction of  the custom shed was also included.

 


Project Three: Private Residence, Foxtrap, NL

This project was fully designed and constructed by Murray’s. Beginning as a home and garage renovation, the landscape soon began to be developed as well. The entire front and back yards now include stairs and retaining walls, hardscape walkways, patios, multi-level decks, and an intricate planting plan.

Project Four: Private Residence, St. John’s, NL

This project was quite interesting, as it involved the installation of a custom artificial turf field in a residential backyard. The project also included the installation of an array of planting areas.

 


Project Five: Private Residence, St. John’s, NL

This stunning downtown property was in need of an upgrade to have the landscape match the beauty of the house. A large tree in the front became the island of a circular driveway that created a grand front entrance. The back yard was transformed into an intricate English style garden with a herb and vegetable garden and multiple seating areas.
