With this project we were shooting for a usable, botanical space. Thirty different native plant species were added to the yard, which bloom in stages all year long. We really love the way it turned out!
The yard at this place was narrow and long so we wanted to create an area that felt open and bigger than it actually was. We went for a contemporary vibe - but didn't want to go to modern because we still wanted it to feel connected to the classic, victorian home. We made sure that the deck angles matched the spirit of the home as well and used a light wood similar to that used in the kitchen area which really pulled the interior and the exterior spaces together.
A message from the owner: "We really loved working with Neil. We felt very aligned on our vision from the beginning, even though my brief was a bit all over the place…think the High Line meets Charleston meets the Lake District. He definitely came through and we would 100% recommend."
The goal is to make this blog a resource for helpful tips and sustainable ideas. I create original content that shows projects in progress and the behind-the-scenes of installation. And, I try to have as much fun as I can doing it.
