AJL Janssen Landscaping of Bracebridge takes pride in being a bit over the edge. Voted “Muskoka’s Favourite Landscaper,” in consecutive years from 2001 to the last awards in  2005, the company has taken landscaping to new heights, as evidenced in the accompanying photograph.

The project took place on Lake Joseph in northwest Muskoka. The purpose was to construct a large granite step and walkway combination joining the upper level boathouse bridge to the bottom of the cliff, where the excavator was lowered.  The excavator was lowered down a 40 foot cliff onto a plateau in order to install a hard landscape around a cottage, which is perched on a granite bluff above the water, making barge access impossible.

It’s all part of the challenge of creating landscapes in cottage country.
