Dam Removal Restores Aquatic life to the Olentangy

  "Eliminating a dam allows fish migration to resume and enables the recolonization of the natural vegetation along the waterway. Once the artificial pool formed by the dam is gone, riffles often form, creating a variety of aquatic habitats. This spawns spikes in animal diversity. Beds of water-willow form on newly exposed rocky shallows, providing cover for young fish. Everything from redhorse sucker fish to dragonflies to stream-loving plants prospers."   Read more at:

Project Spotlight: Lakewood Residence

A beautiful project Greenscapes did for a homeowner in lakewood bordering the majestic shores of Lake Erie. In the front, this project featured "Brussels" block pavers with a "Unigranite" border. The rear patio was made of "Richcliff" pavers, which are designed to look like natural bluestone. The entire property was planted, and natural stone was used throughout.

Let Kids Go Wild in the Garden!

Wildlife gardens provide a great opportunity for children to learn about nature in their own backyard.  Here are some ideas to let kids go wild in the garden.   Fall and winter are crucial seasons to provide food and shelter for birds.  Migrating birds may pass through your yard on a thousand mile trek; those who remain are faced with diminished food supplies and freezing temperatures.  Kids can have fun and feel good about a project that helps feed or shelter birds that stay through the winter.

The Greenhouses of Greenscapes

Greenhouses are wonderful outdoor structures that can add intrinsic value to a property. Many of our clients use them to grow herbs year round; others use them to enjoy tropical plants that would otherwise die off during the winter months. The demand for these structures has risen over the past couple years. Several of our clients this year have requested greenhouses be incorporated in their designs.

Viridis Laceleaf Japanese Maple - Spectacular Fall Foliage!

This photo was taken outside of our office here at Greenscapes! This small tree has green leaves during summer, which gradually turn into vibrant hues of red and orange. The cultivar ‘Viridis’ is a beautiful green lace-leaf Japanese maple forming a mounding shape. Gardeners often plant this cultivar as a compliment to the red-leaved ‘Crimson Queen’ cultivar.

Woody Plants with Fall and Winter Interest

We are moving into autumn but it is not too early for landscape designers to consider which woody plants provide excellent autumn and winter appeal.  Features may include fruits: such as winterberry holly fruits now combined with leaves and later alone in clusters along stems, crabapples such as 'Red Jewel', 'Strawberry Parfait', and 'Bob White' which will retain firm and colorful fruits well into winter, and beautyberry (Callicarpa) with its metallic purple to salmon-pink to white fruits that will have color until major frosts.

Project Spotlight: Upper Arlington Residence

In 2013, a home owner in Upper Arlington called Greenscapes to take a look at their water feature. The pond and the surrounding landscape had not been maintained. It clearly needed to be dredged and was in dire need of both functional and aesthetic improvements. We were happy to take on the challenging project.  The home owner was thrilled with the results!   Before   After
