Fast work

Posted on by Anne Cox

Adam and Hannah had two hours, three additional hosta, some mulch, and one stone birdbath to use to clean up these beds in front of the new gallery in Port Clyde next to the Ice Cream Store. The new tenants wanted a nice entry to their venture. Every winter the snow plow re-arranges the rocks […]

Spring work

Posted on by Anne Cox

Good news this spring is that Adam Fearing has returned from California to work with us for three months. His first project has been at Hedgerow, constructing the patio between the new greenhouse and the upper hoop house. In three days he had it together, using rocks we had on hand. This is a nice […]

Making a garden on the hottest days

Posted on by Anne Cox

We started with this scene on Monday. Monday, the day when temperatures and humidity were both above the 90 degree mark, even here on the midcoast. And no breeze until much later in the afternoon. It was hot. Ingrid, Mikey and persevered and cleaned out this wild garden area that had been sown with wildflower […]

What we do in the rain

Posted on by Anne Cox

A rainy, wet day is a good day for transplanting perennials. When the rain let up a bit, the girls (Ella and Maggie) joined us to supervise. And to be intrigued by Ingrid’s blond hair. Note that the poodle-girls chose the highest point. Of course the rock is dry, but one thing I’ve noticed about […]

A rock wall

Posted on by Anne Cox

Recently I have been working on two rock projects. This one was to reconstruct, or actually, to construct, a retaining wall that keeps water from running onto a leach field. Doug Gammon with his excavator helped level out and move the large boulders on site. Then I worked at filling in with the medium and […]

Adam just before leaving for California

Posted on by Anne Cox

Adam Fearing, who has worked with us for the last four years, just left for a new adventure in California.While I wish him all success there I secretly (alright, not so secretly) hope that he’ll decide he’d rather be here in Maine working with Hedgerow. My guess, however, is that he will be quite successful […]

Adam’s latest rock project

Posted on by Julie Wortman

Last Fall the client built a barn, and had the contractor pile up rocks to retain the slope that had to be cut away for the barn. Let’s just say that one member of the household in particular was not happy with the look. So we tackled the project. First up was help from Doug […]

The wall that Adam rebuilt

Posted on by Julie Wortman

An old stone wall on one of the island properties on which we work tumbled down this winter. Adam rebuilt it and did a great job. Rebuilding and repair walls is often more difficult than simply building a new one. But he’s figured out how to do it for sure. We’re lucky to work with […]

Shipment for the shop

Posted on by Julie Wortman

Late yesterday afternoon we received our shipment of pots and garden ornaments from Campo di Fiori. And a surprise in one box. Wait for it. Wait for it. It’s Ruth Ann. Ruth Ann Keister is working with us in the nursery this spring. When she’s not climbing out of boxes. We received a number of […]

A raised bed project in Rockport

Posted on by Julie Wortman

We added a few raised beds for a family in Rockport. Adam put the beds together. He’s getting quite experienced at making raised beds out of hemlock. We staggered the beds with a central one a bit higher at the elevated corner of this property. Then we planted blueberries behind them. The last step was […]
