RESIDENTIAL LANDSCAPE DESIGN OVER ONE ACRE
LANDSCAPE / HARDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE:
STEVE ROUSSEAU / JOHN LINDSAY MAYER LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT, INC.
The garden for this suburban property has all the elements found at a small estate. Landscape Design included both a new hardscape and landscaping. A winding aggregate driveway ends at both a motor court and garage court. Granite retaining walls are used in both the front yard and back yard creating “rooms” or delineating spaces for different functions. A water feature provides ambience for the kitchen and dining terrace. All hardscape areas are flanked with lush plantings, providing multi-season interest. The sweeping lawns include mature pre-existing trees, added groupings of trees and shrubs and added fruit trees.
