Landscape Renovation

With proper planning and innovative design small properties like this one in Newton can have elegant, intimate, outdoor spaces. The hidden potential of "negative" or "lost" areas can become positive elements in a plan. The introduction of built features such as the brick patio and fence establish positive, structured spaces that fit the site and create a strong sense of place.


The driveway area occupied more prime outdoor space than needed.

The introduction of a custom designed red cedar fence creates an elegant separation between the "public" and the more private spaces.
A flexible patio/entry area welcomes the client home while also creating an opportunity to relax in a tranquil garden setting.

Existing shrubs crowded out valuable garden 'real estate'.  
Inside the new fence a low dry laid fieldstone wall was added to create a level sitting "nook".
