Contemporary Woodland

JMMDS created a woodland garden for a contemporary house on a pond in a Boston suburb that blurs the line between traditional and modern, natural and built spaces. At the front of the house, three evenly spaced fastigiate ginkgo trees (Ginkgo biloba Fastigiata) act as an openwork aerial hedge that mediates between the tall façade of the house, the front terraces and gardens, and the parking area. New ledge-like stones are placed to bring the feel of the existing ledges into a new front garden bed. Photo: Bill Sumner.
