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:

"As soon as I saw the house, I had a vision of a perennial garden with a walkway path slicing through it," says Cunningham. The front yard enjoys full sun for most of the day, which creates a perfect microclimate for these plants.

The gravel path is so inviting, you want to crunch your way through the yard to the door, taking a long time to get there and trying not to trip over anything, while sight seeing.
