Yarrow Point Residence modern landscape
 

Yarrow Point Residence

Recognizing the natural constraints on a narrow, wooded site with substantial topographic variation, southern exposure, and small private framed views to Cozy Cove, the architect, landscape architect, and owners collaborated to create a design that focused on the preservation of existing vegetation and the relationship of interior and exterior spaces. This partnership formed the framework for the architecture and garden design to respond to one another.

The owner’s goal for their home was to maintain a strong and vital connection to the site, creating a fusion between home and landscape with a modern edge. The landscape design emphasizes structured and formal solutions in and around the building and its social spaces, while the site’s perimeter is soft and natural. The result of these efforts is a strong and clear connection between architecture and garden, integrating a palette of both modern and natural elements.

It was purchased from a local nursery quite a long time ago, so I'm afraid I don't know where you'd find it.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to The Secret Formula for Grouping Plants in a Pot
Airy thrillers, a densely matted spiller and fillers that read as calligraphic brushstrokes make this a stunning arrangement. Placing this masterpiece in front of a backdrop that makes it pop— much like art hung on the gallery wall — plus the strong color of the container really kicks it up a notch.
Japanese Sedge(Carex hachijoensis ‘Evergold’)Japanese Sedge is a mounding Japanese short grass with evergreen leaves highlighted by golden-striped centers. Here, it gracefully cascades over the pot's edge on either side, creating airiness in the arrangement. USDA zones: 5 to 10Water requirement: Medium to wet soilLight requirement: Full sun to partial shadeMature size: 1 to 1 1/2 feet tall and wide
7. Learn to mix plants in a single pot. It can be hard to know which plants to pair — take the guesswork out of it with this handy guide from landscape designer Margie Grace.
I like to think of leaf shapes as being in four broad categories: simple, linear or grass-like, fern-like and fancy. Here's how I like to work with them.

Airy thrillers, a densely matted spiller and fillers that read as calligraphic brushstrokes make this a stunning arrangement. Placing this masterpiece in front of a backdrop that makes it pop— much like art hung on the gallery wall — plus the strong color of the container really kicks it up a notch.
