GOALS: Outdoor entertaining, many hydrangeas and roses, calm landscape, grass for kids, attractive plants in every season, good circulation throughout the property.

This comfortable home was almost finished when Land2c began designing the landscape. The open-concept main floor has 3 sets of French doors opening onto the partially covered terrace. The private backyard backs up to a serene green belt. The originally planned minimal patio area was doubled in size and became three curving continuous terraces. The middle terrace has a built-in seating wall for trays of food, drink, and extra seating. The views out to the back garden from the main floor are lovely and change throughout the seasons. The clients are avid gardeners and the collection of their favorite plants--hydrangeas and roses--light up the garden pathways that circle the home. The owners enjoy home-grown bouquets all season long--just one of the benefits their landscape provides.

Old trees were pruned and saved adding permanence to the newly built home. The entry landscape was worked around them. A pedestrian walkway off the screen to the left curves down to the front door through the landscape.

Old trees were pruned and saved adding permanence to the newly built home. The entry landscape was worked around them. A pedestrian walkway off the screen to the left curves down to the front door through the landscape. The landscape is lushly planted with collections of the owner's favorite plants. Beds are attractive throughout the year with many evergreen plants.

The gradual steps work their way to the home through a lush landscape. Grasses, ferns, and maples shade the area. Several trees were left that add instant age to the new garden.

Some favorite hydrangeas and climbing roses flank a pathway. Groundcover surrounds the stepping stones with lavender and variegated hostas filling in along the curvy path to the rear garden. Many summer bouquets for filling vases are grown here!
