Lake Access – Becket, MA 01223

This project started out by coming up with a design to access the clients lake front beach which consisted of a 50 FT elevation change and thick vegetation. Our designer came up with a switch-back path using stabilized screenings. After going through the permit process with the local Conservation Commission, the project was given an Order Of Conditions to strictly follow. The project required us to install drainage swales to handle any rainfall and runoff concerns and to prevent any silt from entering the lake. Our crews also built natural field stone retaining walls using the native stone found on site to help achieve the finish grades needed. Thousands of cubic yards of material were used to achieve the desired slopes to make it down the grade to the beach. Once the pathway was installed, our crews installed natural landscaping to blend in with the surroundings, and to give the area interest and color for every season. To finish off the project, we installed a natural stone bench into the lower retaining wall and a fire pit to enjoy on those cooler nights by the lake.
