2021 signature project
This project is a great representation of the wide variety of skills and craftsmanship that Alchemy Greenhouse can provide. It shows that a small investment in your homes curb appeal can provide value to your property as well as being a beautiful asset you can enjoy. This home started with a cement walkway, cement steps and overgrown plantings. We installed Liberty Hill ashar veneers and thermal bluestone treads for the stair set , techo bloc blue 60 pavers for the walkway and finished it off with new plantings with a Japanese maple center piece with black mulch.
Retaining wall and shed pad

Brownstone walkway rebase and reset
For this project the customer had a brownstone walkway that was sunken below grade and over grown. We removed all the brownstones and based with 6" of process, re set the brownstones, installed a pressured treated border and filled the gaps with a matching brown pee gravel.
Patio and walkway
For this project Alchemy installed a beautiful patio with walkway. We used shale grey Techo bloc Perisan pavers in a square and rectangle pattern with a charcoal border. We finished it off with boxwood foundation plantings and pee gravel.
Pea gravel pool surround with cobblestone border.
This customer was having a problem getting dirt and debris in their pool. We edged and pruned the landscaping, removed the sod around the pool, installed filter fabric, installed a cobble stone border with beautiful pea gravel that is easy to walk with bare feet and keeps debris from getting in the pool. We finished it off with natural brown mulch to prevent weeds and help the health of the plantings. A huge transformation!
Driveway retaining wall
This home had a failing retaining wall the was also unsightly. We removed the old wall, compacted sub graded, based out 6" of process and installed a Champlain grey techo bloc retaining wall with caps. The native soil was wrapped with filter fabric and 16" of clean stone was installed behind the wall for longevity. We finished it off by installing fresh black mulch in the planting bed.
