This is a streetscape and common area landscape renovation at a private mixed residential community in Port Washington, NY. The project scope involved a complete refurbishment of the landscape. The previous landscape was in poor condition because of drainage problems and deficient soils.
The site was previously a sand mine that supplied the sand for the concrete from which a large portion of Manhattan was built. Most of the topsoil and sand had been stripped before the community was constructed, so what was left was wet clay.
Our solution was to bring in over 500 cubic yards of topsoil and compost to elevate the beds for positive drainage and to provide fertile planting beds. Some existing trees were in good condition, requiring careful grading and protection to keep them healthy.
