Landscaping with Water Features, Patios and Boundary Fencing
The plot extended to 10-acres in a magnificent setting with enviable ocean views. The brief was to develop the site with minimum visual impact on the environment. At the same time, the area was to be enclosed with a deer-proof barrier which had to be high. The fencing we erected was virtually invisible from the dwelling.
Much of the acreage would remain untouched. Sympathetic landscaping was required for areas around the house. Natural materials were used for the pathways and patios, and large rocky outcrops remained as part of the scheme.
Our site evaluation revealed wet areas which needed draining. Drainage channels were dug to create streams which allowed the water to be directed into the large feature pond.
Extensive grading was a pre-requisite around the buildings with further excavation needed to set the level for the pond. An irrigation system was installed at an early stage before starting on the hard landscaping and planting.
The project was carried out in stages spread over several months and into the following year. Final planting was carried out in the Springtime. The links below go to the respective pages for the water features, fencing and irrigation for this project.
