Belmont Hill Residence

The master plan for this south-facing woodland property celebrates dramatic topography, muscular canopy trees, remnant fieldstone walls, and native stone outcroppings. Sound vegetation management principles guide each phase of installation, and the true character of the woodland is revealed. Stone walls form terraces that traverse native topography, and a meticulously crafted stone staircase provides casual passage to a gently sloping lawn knoll carved from the existing hillside. Lush perennial borders and native plant stands create edges and thresholds, and a crisp palette of traditional and contemporary materials merge––building upon the surrounding topography and site geology.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Astilbes, geraniums and caramel coral bells show the wide variety of color and texture in the blooms and their foliage.
Vanessa Brunner added this to All-White Gardens Light Up the Night
Working with a shady area? White astilbe is your solution. Brightening the darkest shade with waving plumes of white, astilbe is a classic, easy-to-grow shade perennial.
