You have found it, so you can discontinue searching for landscaping Swanton Vermont; for you have finally located Open Earth Landscaping! Swanton, where Open Earth Landscaping has created a lot of their landscaping miracles, was so named not because it sounds like “a swan’s town” but in actuality it was named for a British naval officer, named William Swanton. Seems he arrived in the nick of time to overwhelm the French fleet in 1760.
This beautiful city is East of Lake Champlain and located at the foothills of the Green Mountains, and to steal a common phrase “a river runs through it” but this time it’s the Missiquoi River. The Swanton nature is quite rural. In fact it is proud to be the state’s biggest producer of maple syrup, and dairy products. One way or another, most people in Swanton deal with grain, corn and dairy. In fact, many are employed by Wyeth, Fonda Group, Comet Confectionery, and Ben & Jerry’s!
It is positively amazing to realize that the Abenakis tribe lived here in Swanton in 6,000 B.C. and no, that’s not a typo! Thus it makes sense that the Abenakis Tribal Headquarters is right here in Swanton. Oh, and there are swans in Swanton, two of them are in the town’s green, and the original swans were a bequest from the Queen of England in 1961 in order to commemorate the town’s 1963 bicentennial. Visitors to Swanton are thrilled how neat it is, and how clean the city is and they all especially love the town's gorgeous green.
For the last 40 years, the village has held their end of July Summer Festival. There, they participate in a 10k race called the Swan Run, attend a petting zoo, hold a library book sale, an auction, and bingo. There is a lot of music, a barbecue dinner, a parade, and also carnival rides. During the rest of the year, the recreation department will hold soccer, swimming, softball and youth baseball leagues. In addition they have volleyballs programs as well as adult basketball.
