Creating Quality Spaces To Enrich Your Outdoor Experience
Whats our "Why"
Leighton’s Landscapes was founded on the principle that connecting nature with leisure and incorporating it with day to day life makes for a better existence. To Leighton Thayer, the owner of Leighton’s Landscapes; landscaping is so much more than a meticulously maintained lawn or a nice stone patio. It is the creation of space that one can learn and grow in. It is the ability to enjoy nature in its midst, and not through a window or from a deck chair.
Leighton provides a variety of landscape signatures. With his love of plants and wildlife, you can be sure he will fit in a perennial or shrub into your landscape plan, along with beautiful stonework and water features. With the proper balance of aesthetics and function, Leighton's Landscapes will design and create spaces for years of enjoyment.

Nate comes to Leighton's Landscapes as an experienced operator with a positive attitude. Nate is used to bigger equipment and even bigger jobs.
Nate heads the equipment arm of Leighton's Landscapes, but he is not afraid to jump into the tedious details of backfilling a wall or keeping a fence post level. When he is not working, you can find him mountain biking with his wife, Danielle or helping a friend out with a project of their own!
Our newest addition to the Leightons Landscapes team, Jeremy has a developed craft in anything natural stone. Seemingly born with a hammer in hand- Jeremy is very talented stone waller and stone patio installer. His talents do not end there- you should see him throw horse shoes!!
Jeremy specializes in high end landscapes and dry lay masonry applications and has done so for the better part of a decade. We are excited to have him on our team!
When Jeremy is not building with stone, he can be found hanging out with his wife, Heather or competing in horseshoe tournaments all over the northeast.
Ben comes to Leightons Landscapes after several years in the pool industry. He is a hard worker with a can-do attitude. He adds a different element to our construction team- his sense of humor keeps crew morale high!
Ben will be working in all facets of the business. Leighton and Jeremy will be grooming him to be a mason and Nate will show him around the big equipment. Ben fills out a very talented and hard-working crew with a busy 2020 ahead!
Big Projects - Bigger Results
Sugarbush Resort Base Lodge Renovation
For this particular client, top quality was paramount. Our outdoor stone garden was completed on time and within budget. It’s a great example of our dedication to deliver a quality product and see it through from start to finish.
Stone Retaining Wall
While working on this project, we were very conscious of the materials and footprint of our work. Our client was interested in an economically and environmentally sustainable outcome, and we did everything to respect these wishes throughout the whole process. We do all we can to make sure our clients are satisfied with the final outcome.
This walkway was particularly interesting as the owner was looking for an irregular yet tight pattern. Using this custom cut stone we managed to keep a very tight pattern throughout while maintaining the visual queues of sharp lines and bold cuts.
Ski House Fireplace
Our first (and certainly not last) major fireplace install was a major success! These clients were looking to capture the "old ski house" feel in their Killington condo without modifying the existing stove unit. Working around the fireplace, we dry-laid each stone to ensure the perfect fit. High and tight was the mission and we achieved mission success!
"I've worked with Leighton several times over the passed few years and you don't find many guys who work as hard as him. He has a passion and talent for landscape and stonework that result in great final products."
