    I am not the designer on this project, but have had similar looks constructed with hog fencing. Good luck.

“The mightiest of large shade trees and conifers take decades — or a whole lifetime — to grow to maturity. Healthy, mature trees make your landscape feel lush and alive. I recommend protecting as many as you can.” — Falon MihalicMihalic presents all the important considerations that should go into siting a home from the perspective of a landscape architect. Someone with a degree in landscape architecture is hands down the person with the best training for this task (and yes, I am biased, but I stand by it). Mihalic walks us through the basics — what we need to know about setbacks, slopes, water bodies and flood plains, microclimates, soil and terrain and existing trees, and how these factors should influence home siting decisions.

If there is an extra-special specimen tree on the site or a group of trees you want to save, do not perform any regrading within the drip line of the tree(s). Keep this in mind because it means that the tree needs a large area of protection. Foundation walls and major construction activity also cannot occur near the root zone of the tree. In the photo here, the home and deck are built around a lovely sculptural tree.See more of this house

The house progresses down a sloped lot, with increased heft as it goes. It’s squeezed around the oak tree in the middle, and a deck wraps the tree, making it the centerpiece of the design.A side yard provides space for play, and a pathway of loose rocks works as a swale to guide rainwater to the creek. The home also sits on piers sunk 40 feet into the ground, something Coel engineered to prevent the home from moving due to gradual creek erosion or flooding.Landscaping: Somos
