“ In reality, landscape architecture is outdoor sculpture, not to be looked at as an object, but designed to surround us in a pleasant sense of spatial relations.” James C Rose
This property has evolved in collaboration with it’s owners over a fifteen year period. The topography at the front entrance to the hillside property was raised and walls and entry piers were built to create a heightened sense of entry. The entry drive, unique pavement lined with used cobblestone leads past the garage court to the main residence, allowing glimpses over the valley. The brick and cobblestone entry court was lowered to separate vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Its rich details are the constant foreground to the entry gardens with continually changing seasonal character. The gardens were designed with a specific color palette and have a nine month bloom time and strong winter interest. Paths lead up to a formal rose garden within a box knot and down to an intimate overlook terrace perched on the edge of the valley.
