An unused sloping lawn was transformed into a lakeside gathering spot by a terrace nestled amid creative plantings, while colorful horticulture along the drive into this unusual property extends a “wide smile” greeting to visitors.
- A new brick terrace overlooking the lake was given quick & creative shade by standards of red-stemmed curly-twig willow. Pollarded each spring, their canopies are formed afresh each summer, and are an explosion of curling red twigs all winter.
- Unusual plantings ensure an engaging access into the property. Here, corylopsis fronts a Hollywood juniper, while at the back, the summer candles of bloom of bottlebrush buckeye are forming.
- Yellow-leaved weigela glows in the shade, with striped liriope at its feet.
