Project Description

Built along the shores of one of the most beautiful lakes in the Estrie region, the house provides its residents with a spectacular view. However, the ever-increasing traffic on the lake led the client to give us the mandate to restore the quietness and private nature of the residence. We redesigned the yard using a variety of expertly arranged flowering plants, natural stone low walls and pathways, and water features. The dwelling recovered its original tranquility shielded by this lush and luxurious vegetation cover.
