Geometric harmony is created as the new hardscape meets this homes foundation. The landscape architectural design includes a hardscape of asphalt paving, exposed aggregate concrete pavement, a concrete plaster retaining wall and crushed aggregate borders. The horizontal lines of the home are accentuated in the subtle details of the concrete pavement. Staircases at both the front entry and motor court function with the site topography. A retaining wall of concrete plaster appears as an extension of the home but lengthens the horizontal lines into the landscaping. Plantings were chosen as architectural elements in a quiet way. The masses of bamboo offer variegated foliage color but also billow with the wind. There early spring growth is preceded by daffodils.Boxwood spheres vary in size to add a sculptural note. An allle of Maples flanks the driveway. The Maples canopy of leaves changes the perspective view of the home with the seasons.
