Hanging Garden: A cold massive wall that dominated the rear yard was transformed by using plants to grow down as well as grow up. The few inches of space left between the fence and top of the wall were utilized for growing beautiful cascading plants to soften the harsh view.
Extensive regrading, drainage work and the installation of fieldstone walls move a lackluster rear yard to a useful, attractive entertaining space. Future wall paintings will add color and interest throughout the year.
A difficult-to-mow sloping lawn is transformed with a new Antique stone retaining wall that underscores the lovely architecture.
An overgrown lot filled with building debris is transformed with a new bluestone patio meandering fieldstone path through lush plantings.
A deteriorating entry walk and outdated plantings are replaced with
a casual fieldstone arrival patio and plants featuring strong seasonal interest.
A weedy, neglected side-yard area becomes a pleasant, inviting walk to the new entertaining spaces.
A dilapidated entry walk was replaced with a new brick-edged
bluestone walk and landing. The new walk allows new and future plantings room to grow.
A steep lot and a need for entertaining space was the inspiration for a multiple-level creation that incorporates a Cambara deck, Brussels patios and walls, low-voltage landscape lighting and deer-resistant, easy care plantings. Wrought-iron railings maintain the view from inside the home.
A one-time field of sand and gravel becomes a resort-like retreat with a shimmering pool, bubbling spa and plentiful lounging spaces. Thoughtful touches, such as the custom fence to keep the pets from entering the bay, add to the owner's peace of mind and enjoyment.
Plentiful seating, a firepit/conversation space and high-impact plantings contribute to a spectacular outside environment.
Bluestone borders and pier caps unite the new stone walls and pavingstone patio with the existing stone walk.12
