Grounds Improvement Plan
Daniel Pierce Library & Time and Valleys Museum
The Time and Valleys Museum celebrates the Catskill towns drowned by the NYC Reservoirs. Restaino Design provided a grounds improvement plan for the existing Daniel Pierce Library expansion and landscape plans for the new Time and Valleys Museum.
The plan specified use of local materials where possible and included: new large cut stone retaining walls, bluestone sidewalks, an expansive bluestone terrace and site amenities. Native plants are primarily featured in mass plantings to reduce maintenance and provide visual effect.
