Description:An asymmetrical entrance terrace sets the stage for this artfully designed home. A clean, geometric layout of the garden mimics the planes of the remodeled residence. Lush, abundant plantings soften the edges and provide a counterpoint to the hardscape. The rear garden is oriented to the angled property line, using materials that echo the prairie influence of the architecture. Native grasses are staggered in the garden adding texture and color variation. Nestled among the plants, a rustic terrace creates a semi-private retreat. A corner potager is in easy distance from the kitchen entrance, while raised planters host pleached fruit trees, filtering neighboring views and providing garden seating. The boardwalk traverses the interior of the garden, surrounds a still pool creating an elegant focal point for the space. Interior and exterior color schemes are extended into the garden, unifying all elements to create harmonious and pleasing grounds.
