CONSTRUCTION OF A 10FT HIGH SNOWMAN
For this fun project located in southern New Hampshire, Interstate Landscaping created a 10ft high snowman in the cul-de-sac near their shop. Here is an article that was published in our local online newspaper.
“Bored? Got some extra time? Any heavy equipment?
Meet Bob, the ten foot high resident of Sheridan Drive made of snow. There was a bit of elbow grease used during his three hours of creation, but more can be attributed to hydraulic oil. Bob was created by the Gardocki family of Londonderry, owners of Interstate Landscape co. inc., and they took the liberty of putting some of their heavy equipment to use during the construction. Bob’s body and giant legs are made of snow, sticks were used for the arms, and plant pots are used for the eyes, mouth, and buttons.
One of the creators, Tom Gardocki said, “We did it for fun, but we figured since we have the big toys we should build a big snowman.” Tom worked together with his parents Bill and Gail to make the enormous winter addition to the cul-de-sac at the end of Sheridan Drive. Bob has now become a hit with the neighbors who are coming by to get pictures next to him with the kids. There is a time-lapse video that is a must see to get a real sense of the scale of Bob.”
