A Golfer's PARADISE by Greg Frank, LC/DBM 32 LC DBM Custom Outdoor Living Amenities Left Brian Campedelli, owner of Pio- neer Landscapes in Easthampton, Mass., and his 12-man crew, rolled out thou- sands of square feet of sod in a matter of days, in order to meet the requests of the client. A "True Putt" artificial green and a "Pro Putt & Chip" artificial green were installed first and then surrounded by "1st Cut Kentucky Blue Grass," which is designed to be cut to 3/4". Above Approximately 3,000 square feet of Belgard Pavers were installed around the pool, pool house and home. Lafitt Rustic slabs in a sable color were used for the pathways diverging from the fire pit, while the walk- ways are outlined with 6"x 6"x 2-3/8" urban gray London Cobble Pav- ers. Campedelli and his team also installed the lighting on the property. Above This private residence, located in Northhampton, Mass., underwent about six months of complete landscape renovations. In total, two golf greens, one sand bunker, two tee boxes, a 15' water feature, a smaller running-water stream, a basketball half-court, nine fire features of ranging sizes, 10,000 feet of sod, 3,000 feet of pavers and a full sized pool house with a bathroom, a kitchen, electricity, a bar and an outdoor shower, were all installed – amounting to what some might call a "Golfer's Paradise." Located in the soft hemlock groves of western Massachusetts is an expansive golfer's playground that features a plethora of outdoor living amenities, all installed (with the exception of the pool) by Brian Campedelli and his team at Pioneer Landscapes. Having been subsequently pleased by Campedelli's terrific job constructing a pool house, the client reap - proached him with inquiries regarding the installa- tion of an artificial turf putting green. Campedelli was ripe for the job; as having over 35 years of experience in the industry made him an expert in this sector. "We worked with this client ultimately on a long term plan," relates Campedelli. "First, the pool went in so we constructed a pool house. Then we expand - ed on that with the patio area, and lastly we added the golfer's paradise part." L
