Landscape Ontario Award of Excellence 2018
We had always admired this early 1900’s home, so when the chance to work with the new owners arrived we jumped at it.
At the roadside, carefully dismantled and rebuilt dry stone columns and walling set the tone for the elegant property beyond. Large front lawns sculpted with sumptuous curves frame the deep garden beds rich with texture and flower where rhododendron, flowering dogwood, oakleaf hydrangea, goats beard and peony abound. The long narrow backyard uses an arbor to frame the view of the rear sitting area and a stunning iron masked water feature beyond. Plantings cascade over gorgeous dry stone walling while meticulously laid flagstone and rubble stonework are underfoot throughout. A sensual pleasure.
