The clients requested that the landscaping around their home renovation be naturally blended with the surrounding wooded environment. They also requested that color would be visible in each season of the landscape. In addition, per client request, there were some plants and stone materials that were kept from the original site and became repurposed within the new installation.
The clients also asked that the driveway be re-routed to provide more screening from traffic at the end of their street turnaround. Three large (18-20’) evergreen trees (Norway spruce) were direct-spaded to help fill the gap left from the old driveway. Other large Hemlock and Dogwood were left intact and had to be worked around throughout the construction period.
The clients also wanted to have spaces to entertain outside. This would include additional turf area as well as the installation of a patio with a firepit by the newly dug pond near the back of the house. We suggested adding a water feature in the form of a spring-fed stream to further create a relaxing atmosphere near the flagstone patio area. The challenge here was to functionally and aesthetically integrate the water feature, patio area, and existing pond together within the landscape.
Finally, the client’s wanted a vegetable garden that would stand the test of time and remind them of some of the gardens they’ve experienced in youth. We designed custom cedar fences, arbors, and raised boxes to make their wish come to reality.
Through meticulous planning and detailed construction, we created a landscape that fully met our client’s needs while seamlessly blending the home and surrounding outdoor environment together.
