Innovative Landscape Solutions
What was the scope of the project?
Joshua Dean of Wheat’s was asked to design a landscape encompassing a pool, spa, lawn and English cottage-style garden. A fireplace, arbor, lighting and irrigation enhance the space.
Describe the clients’ vision.
They wanted space to swim and a blooming garden—amidst a clear arrangement of outdoor rooms for relaxation and contemplation.
What challenges did you face?
The garden came together rapidly, but it took time to find a focal point for the herb garden. A custom sculpture was created by noted English artist David Harber.
What materials and plantings did you use?
Thermal flagstone defines all edges of the plantings, pool, herb garden and fireplace. Large-dimension, rough-cut cedar makes the arbor an impressive counterpoint to the pool. The garden is graced with variegated Japanese iris, peonies, wisteria and climbing roses.
