English Country Garden – Westport, CT

Project Description

Conceptual and detailed design including the construction of a natural stone bridge and antique stone steps over a babbling brook The bridge integrates the wetland areas into the extensive flower beds and borders.

The brook and associated wetlands led the way in the planting palette, resulting in intense and naturalistic drifts of perennials flowers with a back drop of mixed evergreen trees and shrubs, with stunning effect in early summer and fall.

The design intent for this small property was to construct the garden to make the garden appear larger than it is. Through space planning, creating layers, planting a skyline and defining a vista, the property appears to have grown.
