Inspired By The Vence Hills

We created an experiential garden to engulf the senses with fragrance, views and water sound. We endeavored to connect our client's garden to the house using a graceful combination of engineered terraced garden levels, plants used for their architecture and soft clouds of plantings including areas of native plantiings for butterflies and birds. We helped with the house paint selection. The new front garden came to life with the serpentine main path which we used to merge the secondary path to the new driveway. The front is a delightful layout of field stone walls, ethereal planting beds, a bench and ladders for climbing roses 

Inspired by the gardens of northern Caliiforniia and Provence, the rear terraced gardens incorporate a pool with a fountain, stone terraces, stone steps, stone paths and fragrant, colorful hillside plantings including a collection of old English and French roses. We utilized the entire slope for a remarkable cascading garden with winding stone steps. A level terrace off the rear of the house, terraced down to a long French inspired pool terrace which captures the views of the Potomac river shed area. Vertical trees on the upper terrace create an allee with views through the allee to the cobalt blue pool.
