Planting is wrapping up in Kendall Square at the Longfellow Gateway project and the striking mixture of Carex pensylvanica, Carex glauca 'Blue Zinger', Carex muskingumensis and Leymus arenarius 'Blue Dune' create a strong visual experience for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles moving in and out of Cambridge on the newly restored Longfellow Bridge. 

Hoyt-Sullivan Nearing Completion

We are counting down the days until the newly designed Hoyt-Sullivan playground opens in Somerville. The site is composed of three main play areas for different age groups. A path connecting the areas weaves visitors under the established tree canopy of beech, linden, maple and oak. We are excited to see the design ideas come to fruition and we can’t wait for the neighborhood children - who have been enthusiastically waiting  - to make it their own!

Kendall Square's latest landscape is taking shape as the plant installation process begins for the Longfellow Gateway. 

Central Square Construction Updates

Paving is down and trees are in as construction is moving along at Central Square in East Boston. An original Olmsted landscape, we are excited to see our design that celebrates the original plan, but updates its relationship to the current surrounding infrastructure come to life after years of planning and community involvement. The site is scheduled to open later this summer. 

Hoyt-Sullivan Playground

We are gearing up for construction as the plans to transform Hoyt-Sullivan Playground in Somerville get finalized. In a recent article our enthusiasm for the park is shared by the City of Somerville. We are hoping the park to be completed by late fall and the Director of Parks and Open Space for Somerville, Arn Franzen believes it's "shaping up to be the best in the city." 

We'll be sharing updates as Hoyt-Sullivan playground takes shape later this summer.

Central Square Construction

Construction on Bertulli Park in Central Square, East Boston is underway!  With the foundation poured and the formwork for the backup wall going up, the form of the elliptical granite wall has begun to emerge. Click to enlarge photos below.

PLANTING AND CONSTRUCTION AT FISHER HILL

Spring planting is happening at Fisher Hill Reservoir Park in Brookline! Plugs of a wide mix of perennial grasses and flowering plants are being planted in the wet meadow and the bioswale which edges the parking lot. And, we’re seeing the results of fall planting : a walk around the woodland path reveals early blooming Amelanchier (shad bush) drifting along the back side of the embankment. Furnishings are also being installed on the Promenade.

More information about the project can be found HERE.

Fall Color At Fisher Hill

Fisher Hill Reservoir Park is really starting to take shape.  Below are a series of photos from construction over the past month while the foliage was really popping.

For more information on the Fisher Hill, see our project page.

Construction

There has been a lot of progress at Fisher Hill this summer.  Planting is in full force, and the site work including grading and concrete is coming along nicely.
