Mountain Lodge traditional-landscape
 

Mountain Lodge

Situated on a 100 acre site, this landscape for a private residence draws it's inspiration from the classic mountain lodges of the northeast. Rich sweeping drifts of native perennials, grasses and shrubs create a relaxed, elegant composition that ground the home and define a variety of spaces for family gathering, entertaining and quiet reflection. Large caliper trees were planted to compliment the surrounding mature trees, providing a sense of permanence and timelessness. An existing pond was augmented and expanded for swimming with a 'diving rock' hand selected and perched at one end. The south-facing terrace is defined by large slabs of stone and a grand outdoor fireplace that gives way to views of the neighboring ski trails.

Ah yes... The deer. This project is in a location with many deer, but they have not bothered it much. It may be because there are a lot of wide open spaces with food nearby. If you have a smaller property deer fencing may work?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to 13 Risks to Take for True Garden Rewards
1. Remove lawn. I spend about three times the amount of energy mowing than I do gardening (and I mow just a few times each year). Lawns are water and nutrient hogs and wasted space for birds and insects. I like the look of lawns as pathways, and sometimes they’re nice for negative space — a place to rest the eye on and break up the garden — but beyond that they do little for garden making.
