To follow are some pictures that detail the landscape renovation process for the property I wrote about yesterday. In establishing privacy close up on the terrace, and screening the generator from view, a new home was created for the lead fountain.
the last of the planting. In this picture you can see that the boxwood backdrop to the lead fountain was planted on a curve that matches the curve of the Venus dogwoods. A few broadly brushed curves can energize a narrow, boxy space.
The existing lead boxes were moved onto the porch where their diminutive size and subtle detail can be better appreciated. 2 new custom boxes were fabricated and placed as “end posts” to the boxwood hedge across the front. Their size is proportional, and scaled to the size of the porch. The indented, concave corners of the boxes is a traditional detail.
A new powder coated steel pergola has the same footprint as the sun room on the opposite side of the house, and features a gothic arch detail taken from the existing windows on the house. The pergola is set level, true and plumb. The regrading of the ground would come later.
