Mountain Lodge, Planting traditional-landscape
 

Mountain Lodge, Planting

Situated on a 100 acre site, this landscape for a private residence draws it's inspiration from the classic mountain lodges of the northeast. Rich sweeping drifts of native perennials, grasses and shrubs create a relaxed, elegant composition that ground the home and define a variety of spaces for family gathering, entertaining and quiet reflection. Large caliper trees were planted to compliment the surrounding mature trees, providing a sense of permanence and timelessness. An existing pond was augmented and expanded for swimming with a 'diving rock' hand selected and perched at one end. The south-facing terrace is defined by large slabs of stone and a grand outdoor fireplace that gives way to views of the neighboring ski trails.

6. Don’t evenly space your plants. If you’re into lining up plants like a cadet review at a military academy, then go for it — it’s your landscape. But I suggest going bold and emulating nature by staggering your plants, placing two close together and then a third one twice the distance away. The first time I did this, I thought I had discovered the gateway to a fourth dimension — it was very eye-opening.
