Todt Hill Landscaping Project by Wiesner Bros.

Hans Wiesner of Wiesner Bros. Nursery Inc. is Staten Island's only registered Landscape Architect practicing on the island. Landscape Architects help you achieve the best use of your land, while creating the look that you desire.

The following project is a mass renovation of a Todt Hill area home on Staten Island. The customer gave Hans an idea of what she visually liked for her home. Hans created a combination of the customers visual preferences along with the best use of her land. Using his years of experience a whole house design was constructed. The design was proposed to the customer and an action plan began in two stages. The back yard was renovated the first year and the front yard was done the next year.

Before the renovation the house had many overgrown larger plants and shrubs which gave the home a closed-in look. Wiesner Bros. landscaping crew removed the overgrown vegetation. Soil was added and graded properly to allow proper water flow though-out the property. Pathways were created and contracted out through a trusted mason. Colors and materials were chosen carefully to compliment the residence while highlighting the landscape. Larger plants were then installed in accordance with the site plan.

All plants were installed along with fresh new soil around the rootball to ensure proper plant development. A thick layer of cedar mulch was then applied to the plant beds for a beautiful, neat finish that would minimize weed growth. Mulch is visually appealing, healthy for plants, naturally repels insects, promotes soil microorganisms and retains moisture. A mix of fresh soil, fertilizer and peat moss was laid down where the lawn was to be created. Sod rolls were cut with precision to form neat, smooth curves, then packed tightly together for a beautifully carpeted lawn.

Next, annuals and bulbs were planted in the fall, with the anticipation of providing an array of color and texture for then following spring. When the landscaping was complete a fence company was contracted to install the two gates on each side of the property. The Wiesner Bros. Staff returns periodically to maintain the landscape. This includes trimming, fertilizing, installing seasonal color in annuals as well as freshening up the mulch. Due to recent circumstances, we also take deer control measures if necessary, a recently new concern for Staten Islanders. This is done to ensure the plants live a long and healthy life and that the landscape doesn't need to be replaced every five years. An expert is recommended for the maintenance of one's landscape, if the gardener doesn't know the name of the plants, we don't recommend letting them trim them.
