Residential Projects

Metro Boston Residence

This landscape was a complete makeover and renovation of a relatively small lot in one of Metro Boston's historic suburban communities.  The new Landscape included a pool and spa area, an outdoor fireplace and terrace, a perennial garden and a rustic fieldstone seating area.


Scituate Residence

The masterplan for this historic colonial residence in one of New England's quintessential seaside communities was implemented by the owners with a loving commitment to the updated style of this elegant country manor.  Improvements included a formal entry court; a guest parking area; a wildflower meadow and cutting gardens; a great lawn and seashell path.


Sudbury Residence

This Sudbury Residence began as a masterplan for the 5.5-acre property set in a rural portion of this Boston suburb. Working with the architect and homeowner the design realized their vision for this sprawling piece of property that included a separate home rec-center with tennis court, rustic natural pool and waterfall, as well as a softball field and multiple gardens and terraces associated with the main residence.  The materials and details highlighted the country charm of this property.
