Planting a Tree in the Patio

Project: Bob's Shingle Style Home, Episode 21, Part 3



In the kitchen, soapstone countertops, the kitchen sink, and a new Moen faucet get installed. Outside, planting is underway, as the landscapers plant a tree in the bluestone terrace. Bob takes us on a trip to the Burpee Seeds trial gardens in Pennsylvania.

Part 1: Installing a Soapstone Kitchen Counter
Part 2: Touring the Burpee Trial Gardens
Part 3: Planting a Tree in the Patio

Bob meets with Mark Marini to discuss implementation of the landscaping plans and plant a thundercloud plum tree in the bluestone terrace. Bob talks through the process and learns about the soil used around the roots and the initial watering schedule.

 

This project centers around the remodel of Bob Vila's own gracious Shingle Style home in Cambridge, MA. It's a house with a lot of history and beautiful architectural details, many of which were obliterated in remodels of the 50s and the 70s. On the centennial of the house's construction, Bob gets together the best talents in the business to recreate and renew it to its former glory, making some important modifications along the way that will transform this into a dream house for today.
