Beaux Arts Landscape

The personal residence and landscape of a well know national garden and nursery owner. I had the privilege of managing this project for award winning Architect, Bob Swain. Features include an eight foot tall plunging waterfall; a fourteen foot long wall of cascading water down a board-formed concrete retaining wall; an antique Chinese paver patio with copper rill water feature; giant boulders, organic stone steps and a true artisanal dry stack stone retaining wall. While the trees and shrubs are native, the perennial flower beds provided our client a showpiece for their business: gardening!
