Design Concept: The house was completely renovated inside. The structural bones of the house are pulled out into the front driveway with turf strips. The front landscape beds feature straight lines while the rear yard emulates the natural marsh in the distance. There was an existing side Asian Style garden that was restored after renovation. Drainage was an issue on this site and a creative in depth system was designed and installed. An interesting paver path system framed by ivy was implemented in deep shade under the rear decks. Green parking area was installed. All hardscaping including concrete driveway was constructed in house.
