This contemporary home was constructed in 2018 and the new landscape installation soon followed. The landscape plan was comprised of a simple planting palette and included only four plants; river birch, juniper, arborvitae, and sedge repeated throughout the property. The landscape reflects the clean lines and architecture of the home and helps connect the landscape to the nearby wooded bluff. Spring flowering bulbs pop up through the sedges to create a bulb meadow that surrounds the home. The front entry is framed by a Koi pond with stone steps that appear to float just above the water. The steppers are heated so the homeowner’s and guests alike can safely step across the path year round. A large bluestone patio in the back yard looks out over the wooded bluff and can accommodate large or small groups. The new, low care landscape compliments the architecture of the home and nestles it into the surrounding neighborhood.
