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:

Not just for topping potato skins, chives are a very versatile and easy-growing herb. As a perennial in most areas of North America, it will come back each year, spreading into a larger clump. For this reason you may want to keep it in its own pot so it doesn’t crowd out other plants.

chives are very versatile and easy-growing herb. It's a perennial that will come back each year and spread into a larger clump. Be careful about it crowding out other plants. May want to keep it in a separate pot.

Generally overlooked as potential bedding plants, herbs deliver threefold with their curly, spiky, and variegated foliage, delightful fragrance and flavorful leaves. Excellent candidates include parsley, rosemary, garden chives (shown), tricolor or purple sage, and taller, more wispy fennel and dill.Likewise, veggies add unique interest. Use lettuces, ornamental cabbages, and kale as foliage plants. Tuck in peppers or tomatoes for succulent color.
