DTR ASSOCIATES, INC.
Despite several additions to this Century Home, the clients wanted a landscape
that appeared as if it were built at the time the home was. As professional chefs,
integrating cooking gardens was important. This sandstone walk is flanked by
gardens with herbs and vegetables. The climbing hydrangea and benches
create the perfect private sitting area. The re-claimed brick terrace includes a
pergola and dining space. The raised herb and vegetable garden were
created from sandstone that was uncovered from an old shed foundation
discovered on the property during the latest renovation.
RICE'S LANDSCAPES REDEFINED
KGK was asked to overhaul a plain front entryway to compliment the grand
style of the homes interior. Guests now follow a serpentine walkway where they
can pause and relax on seating walls on their way to the enclosed courtyard.
You pass through a gate and under an arched arbor into a courtyard which is
framed by a seating wall. To add depth to the property, an island planting bed
and accent wall was installed in the front corner of the property. A multi-tiered
fountain, forever timeless and classic, was positioned in front of the home office
windows so the gentle sound of water can be heard while you work.
