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 a 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.
