This site underwent a dramatic transformation from a casual outdoor afterthought to a well-defined, functional, and beautiful space.
The front entry was redirected and is now expansive enough to serve as a front terrace. The front porch steps down to a formal garden that surrounds the home.
Raised garden beds line the entire space, creating rooms and directional flow. Layers of white and green plants fill the beds while taller specimens define private spaces. Although the rear garden is separated by the gate, the textured greens and raised beds continue along the home’s perimeter.
The hardscaping in the gardens is both vertical and horizontal. It raises the eye, breaks up the greens with stone and white fencing, and creates movement from one garden room to the next.
The site’s variety of textures creates a harmonious outdoor environment.
