Central Pennsylvania Country Home traditional-landscape

Central Pennsylvania Country Home

Previously farmland, this Central Pennsylvania country house mends well to its site. With nearly 8 acres of open lawn and meadow surrounding this traditional home and a woodland border, this property called for a diversity of planting and shaping of the outdoor spaces. The plant palette consisted of more traditional plants and those of the old paired with many native species to the eastern coast. A deck at the rear of the house provides an extension of the home. It’s equipped with an arbor with wisteria entwined around its beams that provide adequate shade during the hot hours of the day. The clients, avid gardeners and lovers of land, called for a potting shed. The structure was hand crafted on-site from salvaged lumber milled from the properties own trees. With the installation of solar panels, a vegetable patch, and orchard, it was important to not only screen their view but create definition on the property. A knack for the old, the clients made it easy to incorporate a connection to the farm’s past and add focal points along the journey with antique crates, water pumps, rustic barrels, and windmills.
