Pool with Trellis

After decades of use as an active Christmas tree farm, the land had been neglected for several years before the current homeowners obtained it. The owners envisioned a landscape with pool, dining and entertaining areas, combined vegetable and flower gardens, and an apple orchard. We made it our goal to introduce these elements in a way that wove the new and old landscapes together into a cohesive experience within a variety of spaces.

A key concept was to salvage the Christmas trees and sculpt them into celebrated hedges (instead of simply cutting them), which speaks to the industry as a whole; adapting site materials is not limited to specimen species of plant or even to hardscape materials.
