Super Storm Sandy took its toll on the residential South Shore of Long Island in 2012. Damage to hardscapes and plantings on South Shore towns was enormous.
Based on the south shore of Long Island for over 35 years, Anchor Landscape Inc. has been developing properties to be more sustainable to the harsh conditions the shoreline can produce. Wind, Sun and Salt are three of the most destructive elements pounding the South Shore. Utilizing high quality and more tolerant products for the hardscapes and plantings is the key.
With the devastation of the storm came a need rebuild at new elevations for shoreline homes, Amityville, Massapequa, Babylon, Lindenhurst & West Islip are included in the hardest hit areas. Home elevations are now as high as 7′ above grade with some 16 steps to even reach the front door. While this is a necessary change, landscape must now be developed to soften the look of these structures.
Anchor Landscape Inc. of Massapequa has been creating unique masonry & carpentry designs to create beautiful entry’s, incorporating plantings to accommodate the new Landscape challenges homeowners are facing with these new elevations. The use of high stress tolerant plants such as , juniper, spruce and pine will also help develop a more sustainable South Shore.
