Collaborating on a Vision

During several landscaping projects undertaken here, Gale designers and crews worked with Harry Hartman (who oversaw house renovations and is a knowledgeable plantsman), the construction contractor, and a master stonemason. The clients, both passionate gardeners, had substantive input as well.

Flagstone stairs lead to an upper terrace that features antique cast iron garden sculptures.

Creating a More Private Setting

Over the years, trees and shrubs grouped on the perimeter of the property had extended a woodland feel into what had originally been open lawn, screening out views to and from the road and several adjacent homes. By reorienting the drive and planting a screen of shrubs where the original entry had been, a more dynamic and attractive entry sequence was created.

Continuing to Beautify

Several large trees were moved to new location on the property and plantings around the house were also redesigned within a framework of large evergreen hollies and other older specimens. In the years since the initial project, the clients have come up with ideas that Gale has implemented, including a peony garden adjacent to the greenhouse, plantings of shade-loving groundcover, and a delicate fern dell under a canopy of majestic old spruces.
