The front entry to this home renovation is truly celebrated. Landscape Design started with a new hardscape for the front yard. Starting at the street, the topography was addressed by construction of brick masonry retaining walls. The walls plateau the garden, creating the perfect plinth for a new sculpture. Architectural bollard lighting is used to light the driveway, wall lighting for the garage court and accent lights are used for trees and sculpture. Just as important, a garden was developed to compliment the surroundings and showcase the sculpture. Spring bulbs in bloom punctuate the Forest Grasses and the Pears enframe the art.
