An unforgettable vista. An enthralling distant scene is integrated into this lovely landscape with a light hand. Nothing here is contrived, but each aspect of the domestic landscape feels in harmony with the water, hills and naturalized plantings in the distance.
This design works because of the placement and execution of the stone patio, which defines the outdoor gathering area. The plantings at its edge are intentionally kept low so they do not obscure the view of the water. The mature trees on either side are lightly pruned to keep low-hanging branches out of the sight of those magnificent hills.
