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.

Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to The Secret Formula for Grouping Plants in a Pot
Need something bigger than a single pot? The same thriller-spiller-filler formula can be expanded to a group of pots that work together to create a unified composition. This grouping of pots filled with flax (Phormium var.) and assorted succulents follows the thriller-spiller-filler formula.
