Notes:
This 5,030 square foot formal garden,significantly smaller than the owners' previous property, includes antique garden ornaments as well as a deck design they loved and brought with them in 2003. A color palette limited to green, white and soft gray unifies the lawn, patio and deck. Topiary trees and shaped hedges inside the walls and beyond the deck also unify the space.
The lawn garden at the front of the house is bordered by topiary Mayten and Japanese maple trees, clipped boxwood hedges, and white New Guinea impatiens planted in containers, underplanted in Baby's tears, that leads to a reproduction Italian wall fountain. The patio with gray paving stone tiles alongside the house features more topiary trees and a border of clipped English boxwood. The deck at the back of the house, copied from the deck designed by landscape architect Thomas Church from their previous property, is bordered by low benches and a tall bayberry hedge.
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, a narrative description of the garden, and other information.
