Front Ridge Residence

A rural hillside residence in Downeast Maine serves as a model for regenerating fragmented native plant communities and restoring damaged site systems. Sensible land management practices guide the homeowner’s efforts to rehabilitate expansive areas of mown lawn. Spaces carved from the landscape overlook stunning panoramic regional views, while new plantings define edges and thresholds. Brilliant seasonal drama is heightened along mown paths meandering through a rich tapestry of managed native meadow.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Spectacular native plant communities soon returned to the meadow: rushes, clover, grasses, daisies, Queen Anne's lace, thistle, goldenrod, rue, vetch, lupine, buttercups and more. Wildlife immediately followed.
2. Is the marketing full of feel-good images? Ads and packaging featuring oceans, forests or really healthy-looking people frolicking in fields of wildflowers may give the impression that the stuff being marketed is good for the planet. When paired with green buzzwords (see question number one), this strategy can be pretty effective at swaying us. Of course, plenty of truly green products use natural imagery — but if no facts are presented along with the nature scenes, do more research.
