Colonial Farmhouse Landscape

Traditional Landscape, Philadelphia

This Delaware Valley property sits on several acres, many wooded. A soft roadside planting enamored with evergreen and deciduous plantings was installed to provide texture and color as the seasons change and define the property. Reclaimed cobblestone was used for the driveway parking areas, tying into the farmhouse aesthetic. Wet-laid irregular flagstone paths to the rear entries of the house passing by a site original well pump remind you of a slower lifestyle. A large pond was incorporated into the front yard as a solution for a low area retaining water, working with the natural recurrence of the land. Native stone and brick were incorporated into a fireplace and hearth in the rear yard entertainment area, providing a natural connection to the land and surrounding scenery.
