error-file:tidyout.log At Zone4 Landscapes we revel in the unique landscaping challenges and opportunities of our beautiful Catskill region. We will collaborate with you to create a design that will meet your functional and aesthetic goals so that your landscape will be comfortable, useful and beautiful.  Don't worry, if you are not sure what you want, we will work together to figure it out.  Then we will continue to work with you to tailor the plan and a budget (including phased approaches) and install the garden to our specifications and maintain it if you so desire.

I am Mel Bellar and I own and operate this outfit. The photos in the slide show were mostly taken this past season.  They begin with some images of my Cabin Garden and go on to show some of the new work we have done this busy year as well as revisiting some gardens from earlier seasons to show their progress. 

Following a garden through the years is very gratifying as the old adage, "The first year it sleeps, the second it creeps and the third it leaps", is really true.  It is always a challenge to make a newly installed garden look great and plan for it to look good in 3 years, 5 years and 10 years.  It involves choosing the right plants, placing them optimally and either patience while they fill in or the willingness to do some thinning as the garden grows.

"Gardening is the slowest form of the performing arts."  This anonymous and provocative quote is a good introduction for the new gardener or client and a great reminder for the landscape designer.
