Environmentally respectful outdoor spaces respond to topography, nestling purposefully into a northern slope. Retaining walls meticulously crafted from reclaimed stone rise from native groundcovers, and a granite staircase efficiently uses limited space. Tight deck systems constructed from FSC certified mahogany extend over walls, and stainless steel railings form interesting geometries. Crisp, unified landscape features complement elegant house details. Valuable canopy and specimen vegetation is preserved, setting an established tone for the garden. A transplanted tree hydrangea becomes a dazzling late summer focal point, and low-maintenance plantings conserve water. The landscape provides refined, durable spaces for an active modern family.
