Project Description

The landscaped area proposed here is understated, soothing, and perfectly in tune with the surrounding woods. As requested by the client, the ring of trees around the residence’s perimeter was kept intact. Slate slabs form a pathway connecting the different subspaces while creating small private areas here and there. The dense and bushy plants and shrubs link the built elements with the surrounding native vegetation.
