North Country Landscapes, LLC

  • Your yard is a garden. A place dedicated to the outward expression of you. It is a space which marries the architecture of your structures to the lay of the land. It is a living space, a place to relax or play, but most importantly… It is a tangible space that can stimulate your senses with color and fragrance and enhance the quality of your life.

Shane Pilato is the landscape designer, sales person and coordinator for the company. Shane graduated with high honors from Cobleskill University in 1997 where he studied landscape design & horticulture and was inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society. Shane was also the youngest Master Gardener in Greene County when he completed training in 1990 through Cornell Cooperative Extension.  As a teenager, Shane started mowing lawns and doing odd chores around the yard for various clients. Driven by a passion for plants and his love of outdoor spaces, he stuck to it. Early on, Shane decided that he wanted to be a landscape designer and own a professional landscape company. Shane’s old fashioned work ethic and stubborn “stick to it” outlook has won him many friendships, long term clients and much professional respect. Growing up in a family of tradesmen and carpenters had also earned Shane an additional edge in his field.

With a love for every type of design, from historically accurate period gardens to ultra contemporary houses and Japanese gardens, diversification is the key for Shane. “The world is a big place and filled with many types of people. My goal as an effective designer is to learn to understand who my clients are and what they love.
