CHALLENGES: To make the entire property beautifully serene, formulate a variety of outdoor rooms for different uses, connect the gardens around the home, and keep the maintenance manageable,
This welcoming home features 3 main areas for entertaining, many spots for sitting quietly, a lovely garden 'shed' near the vegetable garden, a variety of pathways through sun and shade--all places to enjoy the quiet wooded setting. Colorful art is paired with plants throughout the site. All windows and pathways feature attractive views though out the year. Sunrises are enjoyed from the ipe deck and sunsets from the bluestone entry terrace. Many sturdy evergreen shrubs and dwarf conifers reduce the required garden work and provide interesting greenery throughout the winter months. The many ceramic pots add color and interest all year around.
