Notes:
"Stylish gate; front yard fence; precise placement of raised beds for color have revived an old town garden. Mature trees have been retained. Wisteria and Japanese Maples now skillfully pruned. Flowering trees and shrubs have been added. The three distinct areas relate spatially to house, greenhouse and garage. The larger central garden spreads across the driveway with the form of the sculpted trio of Japanese Maples as its main focus."
