The dynamic garden composition in front of this 100 year-old stone Pennsylvania farmhouse is filled with perennials that command attention with their colorful foliage every season of the year. Euphorbia, Black-Eye Susans, and an array of textures add visual interest and color throughout the landscape.
This colonial home was cut into an east facing slope, with it’s rear garden protected from the elevated topography to the west. This pleasant place surrounded by hillside was left unrealized with its woodland edge wild and untamed, linear shrubbery foundation plantings and views out of prominent windows with nothing to gaze upon but the ubiquitous suburban lawn.
The landscape goes as far as the eye can see. A well-maintained lawn is circled by lush perennials, shrubs and trees, and a pair of Adirondack chairs offer a place to take in the scenery.
The edge of the remaining woodland was planted with flowering understory trees to add layers of color to the spring landscape. The birds that frequent them bring color and movement to the garden all year long. Plantings were sculpted into the hillside with grand blocks of cool and warm season grasses and vigorous perennials creating a sinuous edge to the upper perimeter of the garden.
