Grand Award, Outdoor Living Area

Collaborating with Campion Hruby Landscape Architects, Scapes, Inc., transformed a vintage property on the Magothy River. The dramatic redo encompassed outdoor living spaces, paths, plantings and lawn areas. It also incorporated native ironstone to create a unique look throughout. “Our masons matched the home’s original ironstone façade with new ironstone retaining walls, steps and columns so it would look as if it all was done at the same time,” says principal Jeff Crandell. Clean-lined Pennsylvania flagstone treads, patios, walkways and capstones complement the rustic ironstone.

The plantings are a mix of boxwood, hydrangea and roses, with masses of perennials and grasses. The landscape is designed to frame the house while ensuring its visibility from the water. The homeowners can relax and entertain with ease.
