Nestled on one acre of tree-studded land, this yard is enhanced by verdant and colorful plantings. The owners have a special passion for vegetable gardening and enjoy puttering, which always adds special flavor to an outdoor living space. We left the front landscape natural with existing pine and redwood trees. The use of classic hardscape materials like Connecticut Bluestone and brick create an East-Coast feel. This landscape had many existing elements that we integrated into the new design: The existing swimming pool received new coping and bluestone decking, and the large lawn areas were kept as-is. We added an outdoor kitchen and bar, large stone patio and seat walls, a new edible garden, new gravel and stone paths, and new plantings all the way through for a real garden retreat.
