Catskill Mountain News  -  Zone4 Landscapes Takes Shape

Mel Bellar and Nat Thomas launched their new landscape design business, Zone4 Landscapes. Their plan is to create unique gardens that are functional as well as beautiful and will thrive in our challenging and diverse region of extreme weather, varying soil conditions, and abundant wildlife. Zone4 offers custom landscape design services using current high-end technologies to quickly develop site plans and visualizations of your garden.

Bellar and Thomas bring a combination of skills, talents, experience and knowledge to Zone4. Bellar comes from a background in music and technology. His passion for gardening attuned to the environment has been demonstrated from his Manhattan rooftop garden to his cottage-stroll garden in the Andes. He is currently completing a landscape design certification at the New York Botanical Garden.

Thomas is a well-known artist and custom quilt maker who has been gardening for himself and others in the area for over 19 years, bringing a deep practical understanding of the indigenous plant life and conditions and an amazing sense of design. Both Bellar and Thomas are participants in the Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Program and plan to continue their education in the areas of horticulture, technology innovations and design.

Services offered include complete site analysis and plans, conceptual designs, detailed construction plans, on-site installation, general contracting and maintenance services. Zone4 services the Catskill Region, Delaware County and the route 28 corridor in particular.
