Clients contacted Walnut Hill to design a landscape to complement their weekend retreat on the Wye River. With year-round entertaining in mind, they specified a pool, cabana with overnight guest accommodations, an entertainment area, and parking.
The design was created for minimal impact on the waterway. Native plantings offset the increased lot coverage on the property, and hardscape was strategically designed to meet impervious requirements. A firm grasp of the local permitting ensured that they could stay one step ahead throughout the process.
Mass plantings of shrubs, perennials and grasses provide year-round color and texture. Trees were placed for vertical interest and unobstructed water views. Pennsylvania flagstone covers the pool patio, coping, walkways and wall caps.
- A lighting plan accents the features of the landscape without obstructing river views
- Copper deck jets near the pool create visual interest
- The cabana houses intimate seating around a fireplace that serves as a focal point
- Views of the Wye River complement the landscape, creating a scenic backdrop
