This wooded residence was selectively cleared of mature pine forest in order to create a more open design for the current owner. Selective plantings were retained and others relocated along edges to allow for light and views towards the residence. Native plant species are juxtaposed with granite boulders in groupings at the perimeter of delineated lawn areas. To the rear of the property, additional plantings are located along a bluestone terrace which opens to expansive lawn areas. The existing slope was retained and planted with ornamental grasses interspersed with boulders and a lower lawn terrace abuts the mature pine tree line.
